Noah Cyrus wants the world to know that she does not want to be compared to her sister, Miley Cyrus, or her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, anymore. In a recent interview with Billboard, she revealed just how frustrating it is for her when interviewers constantly bring up her famous family.
“It drives me f—ing nuts,” the 18-year-old explained. “But like, I mean, what are you going to do?”
Noah went on to explain that the comparison bothers her so much, that it’s actually why she sees a therapist.
“It’s the reason I talk to a therapist three times a week, I swear,” she continued. “It’s crazy. It’s just like, it’s annoying whenever you put your hard work into something and people don’t recognize it for what it is.”
Noah just wants to be her own person and get recognition for her own accomplishments, not for her family’s. We totally get it, girl. The singer has worked hard on launching her music career, and recently released her first studio EP, The Good Cry, which came out in September. The album is full of iconic bops and epic breakup songs, and Noah also wants fans to know it’s not about her ex, Lil Xan.
“This record is not about Lil Xan,” she explained, adding that she got together with him to get over the mystery man that inspired the album. “I was going through a break-up with somebody I was with for two years, and my heart’s still broken over that.”
Noah admitted to Billboard that it’s been “a rollercoaster of emotions” for her lately, but added that she’s slowly and surely, getting through it.
“Just a whole bundle of s–t happened like a hurricane,” she explained. “But, I’m getting better.”
We are loving Noah’s new EP and we have so much respect for her wanting to be recognized for her own talents and not her big sis’ or dad’s.
