Miley Ray Cyrus (born Destiny Hope Cyrus; November 23, 1992) is an American actress and singer.
In several interviews Cyrus has mentioned her use of cannabis. However, rumors addressing her use of cannabis before 2013 were denied. In a video obtained by The Daily, taking place at Cyrus' 19th birthday party at the Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles, Cyrus went to the microphone and addressed the crowd. Immediately after her Bob Marley-themed birthday cake had been brought out, Cyrus said, "You know you're a stoner when your friends make you a Bob Marley cake. You know you smoke way too much fuckin' weed." Cyrus' representative later stated that the Bob Marley cake had just been a "joke" and that Cyrus' response had been "sarcastic".
In a 2013 Rolling Stone interview, Cyrus said cannabis was "the best drug on earth" and called it, along with MDMA, a "happy drug". On November 10, 2013, while accepting the Best Video award at the 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards, Cyrus smoked what appeared to be a joint on stage, which was removed from the delayed broadcasting of the program in the United States. In December 2013, Cyrus was named CelebStoner.com's "CelebStoner of the Year".
In a W interview published in February 2014, Cyrus said, "I love weed" and "I just love getting stoned." In August 2014, she told an Australian television network, "You know what hurts your brain? Googling yourself. You know what hurts your brain? Instagram. You know what hurts your brain? Reading comments on Facebook. You know what hurts your brain? Reading US Weekly... I put some picture of me smoking weed … on my Instagram because I was brought up in the way that we never thought marijuana was bad."
