Noah Cyrus’ Struggles With Living Under Miley Cyrus’ Shadow
Cyrus opens up about her struggles with being under sister, Miley Cyrus’ shadow in new EP. Her new track even had lyrics saying: “My sister’s like sunshine, bringing good light wherever she’ll go/ and I was born to rain clouds, blessed in her shadows.” She elaborated further on the meaning of the song in an Instagram live on Saturday. Cyrus also broke down talking about it. She says: “I think just the message in the second verse, being born in the family I was in, everyone gave me such a hard time for having a hard time being Miley’s little sister, But you know, I always felt like I was that person that no one gave a s— about due to what people said to me online.”
She further explains: “It was absolutely unbearable, And that’s why I write, ‘My sister’s like sunshine, bringing good light wherever she’ll go/and I was born to rain clouds, blessed in her shadows.’ Because, that’s why everybody always says to me, that no matter what, I was going to be in that shadow.” She also expresses: “That was something I heard my whole life, every single day, my whole life. It was either that or that I wasn’t enough in some way, whether it was the way I look or the way I am. Like I said the other day, sometimes I feel like I don’t even breathe right sometimes,”
“Basically, that is what the song is about, and I just wanted to open up about that once and for all, because that’s been a big part of my life, and I probably won’t talk about it anymore. I just wanted to put it out.”
“Everybody always says you’re giving the people power by seeing it, but I can’t control seeing it,” Noah tearfully adds: “You guys are young, you know the internet. It’s been really tough on me, so that song is just pretty tough to get through.”
Miley Cyrus, However, is there for her sister and protects her no matter what. She advises her and hopes that Noah can realise her value.
