Miley Cyrus, who in June revealed she'd been sober for six months, opened up in a candid interview with Apple Music's Zane Lowe about her recent relapse.

"Well, I, like a lot of people, being completely honest, during the pandemic fell off. And I would never sit here and go, 'I've been fucking sober,' and I didn't. I fell off and I realised that I now am back on sobriety, two weeks sober, and I feel like I really accepted that time," she admitted, before adding: "One of the things I've used is 'Don't get furious, get curious.' So don't be mad at yourself, but ask yourself, 'What happened?'"

During her interview she also spoke about Amy Winehouse, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain, saying they inspired her to get sober.

"27 to me was a year that I really had to protect myself. That actually really made me want to get sober, because we've lost so many icons at 27. It's a very pivotal time. You go into that next chapter or this is it for you. I just feel that some of the artists that almost couldn't handle their own power and their own energy and their own force. It's an energy. I, no matter what, was born with that."

The Prisoner singer is set to release her new album, Plastic Hearts on Friday, 27 November.
