From the sound of it, Miley Cyrus plans to add author to her already impressive resume! Yep, during a recent appearance on the “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, the songstress revealed that she wants to create a series of children’s books that teach kids about substance abuse. The 27-year-old said that she believes young people are “not taught” about alcohol and drugs.
“I don’t like the idea that we teach them that this is sunshine world and everyone walks on a rainbow and everyone’s equal. And you need to say like… That’s not true. What are you going to do about it? And I think there’s a way to not terrify children of life, even though I go in and out of periods where I think life is really overwhelmingly terrifying,” the Hannah Montana alum said, before explaining that it’s a “controversial” idea.
Miley continued, “But I do think that we do need to talk about, you know, equality and I do think there needs to be diversity in children’s books.”
As fans know, her book ideas came months after Miley revealed that she’s been sober since undergoing vocal surgery in November 2019.
“I’ve been sober sober for the past six months. At the beginning, it was just about this vocal surgery… But I had been thinking a lot about my mother. My mom was adopted, and I inherited some of the feelings she had, the abandonment feelings and wanting to prove that you’re wanted and valuable,” she said during an interview with Variety at the time. “My dad’s parents divorced when he was 3, so my dad raised himself. I did a lot of family history, which has a lot of addiction and mental health challenges. So just going through that and asking, ‘Why am I the way that I am?’ By understanding the past, we understand the present and the future much more clearly. I think therapy is great.”
