As happy as she is with her decision, Cyrus admitted it wasn't without difficulties.
"It's really hard because especially being young, there's that stigma of 'you're no fun,'" she said. "It's like, 'Honey, you can call me a lot of things, but I know that I'm fun.' The thing that I love about it is waking up 100%, 100% of the time. I don't want to wake up feeling groggy. I want to wake up feeling ready."
The singer also told Variety that she underwent surgery after her doctor told her she was suffering from over-use of the vocal cords.
"It’s no surprise that I would have this," she said. "I’ve been touring since I was 12 years old, but it’s not even the touring that’s the hard part. It’s you end up staying up late and meet-and-greets and things like that. And obviously I just talk a s— ton."
