If Miley Cyrus seems a bit different to you, that’s because she is. Fans have noticed a distinct change in Miley beginning with her single “Malibu” followed by her appearance and demeanor on NBC’s The Voice. It turns out there is a good reason for the change as Miley Cyrus has announced she quit smoking weed. It’s been approximately eight months since Miley quit smoking weed and cigarettes and she did so because she wanted to focus her energy on her new album Younger Now.
Miley Cyrus appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon several months ago and explained the reasons behind her lifestyle change. She also appeared on the Howard Stern Show where she also described why she gave up weed.
You can listen to Miley explain her reasons to Jimmy Fallon, and interestingly, she credits him with being part of the decision.
Miley Cyrus has released six studio albums and Younger Now has climbed the charts and is on track to be her most successful album yet. Younger Now and tracks such as “Malibu” and “Younger Now” have remained steady on the iTunes charts.
Miley Cyrus recently sang “The Climb” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and dedicated the performance to the victims of the Las Vegas massacre. The song “The Climb” is now on the iTunes charts.

Miley Cyrus explained that she was so excited about her new album Younger Now and gave up smoking weed so that she would be more in control and aware of the writing process, recording the album, and promoting it.
The first single “Malibu” was written about her restored relationship with Liam Hemsworth and she wanted to make sure that she didn’t tell her story through Younger Now while hindered on drugs.
Though some argue that drugs enhance creativity, Miley is clearly thinking the opposite. She also told Jimmy Fallon that in many of her past interviews she was completely stoned and began having nightmares that she would die from smoking too much weed.
She’s given up marijuana and the change is noticeable. Even Miley’s appearances as a judge on The Voice seem more subdued, as do her outfits.
What do you think of the new and improved sober Miley? Are you watching The Voice? Have you listened to Younger Now?
