In a candid conversation with Sunday People, Miley Cyrus opens up about her life. The U.K. paper learned the 20-year-old star feels she has a “messed up” life and plenty of issues.
After Cyrus made headlines about the racy performance she gave at the MTV Video Music Awards, Twitter went wild with tweets from viewers who were stunned over the inappropriate on-stage act. Cyrus sang her hit, “We Can’t Stop” and stripping down to a nude-colored two-piece, she finished with “Blurred Lines,” both performed with Robin Thicke. Her gyrating hips and tongue motions proved that there are some issues behind the star’s on-stage persona.
Cyrus tells Sunday People that she knows she is a workaholic. She feels it is all about the music but realizes the combination of the two can cause problems.
I have so many f**king issues. I am so f**ked up. Everyone does dumb stuff when they are messed up. I don’t have a normal life. I take a hiatus every now and again, but I’m not good at that.
Cyrus admits she rarely sleeps but feels the lack of rest doesn’t affect her.
All I do is work, so I eat to live and to keep going. People are impressed with me because I can sleep for just 45 minutes. I’m used to it.
Miley understands that her diet and exercise routines are important, yet they are pretty much non-existent.
Because I work so much, I’m always on the road so I eat healthily. I have to give my body what it needs to keep going and if you don’t then you will crash and burn. I don’t get to work out. I do yoga and 30 push-ups every day and try to get my mind right.
Hopefully this young celebrity will get the help she needs. The lack of sleep will eventually catch up with someone who does not receive the proper amount of rest each night. The missing sleep in someone’s life is equivalent to being inebriated. This might possibly explain some of the craziness surrounding Cyrus’ performance and her strange behavior elsewhere.
Sleep deprivation has been a factor in some of the largest disasters in history. Three Mile Island, Exxon Valdez oil spill and the nuclear meltdown at Chernobyl are just three of the largest accidents related to the lack of sleep on someone’s behalf.
Sleep is vital to our thinking and learning processes. The lack of sleep can impair attention, alertness, concentration, reasoning and problem solving. Memory is affected by sleep deprivation as well. Our sleep cycles “consolidate” memories in the brain. Without sleep, it is difficult to remember what is learned and experienced during your life.
Sleep deprivation can also cause other health problems such as heart disease, heart attack, heart failure, irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, stroke and diabetes. With all of the physical and mental health issues sleep deprivation can cause, it makes sense that Cyrus and others in this position are not able to consider the results of their actions.
