She was able to look back on the moment with a sense of whimsy, while calling out the so-called ‘friend’ who invaded her privacy and caused a whole lotta public scrutiny for her (may that person rot in hell).
“Happy 10 year anniversary to the groundbreaking video of a teenager smoking a bong & saying dumb shit to their friends. (Not sure the director of this fine film should be considered a “friend” but…)”, she wrote. “Time really flew by. I remember this like it was yesterday….. J/K I don’t remember shit cause I was fucked the hell up.”
The video caused quite the scandal at the time, with Miley Cyrus being called out by folks everywhere and even losing out on some huge deals, like a massive endorsement with Walmart.
Miley Cyrus tweeted about the incident just last year.
“It is no secret that I was into partying in my teens and early 20’s. I have not only smoked, but advocated for weed, I’ve experimented with drugs, my biggest song to date is about dancing on molly and snorting lines in the bathroom,” Cyrus tweeted.
Cyrus said that one of the the consequences of her partying days was losing a Walmart deal, tweeting: “I lost a massive Walmart deal at 17 for ripping a bong.”
Miley Cyrus also addressed the incident during an interview with Variety a coupla years back.
“I had a clothing line at Walmart and got kicked out, because they said you had to choose weed or Walmart,” Cyrus told Variety in 2016. “And you see what I did – I chose weed.”
An excellent choice, I reckon.
