There are a countless number of people that struggle with depression. It turns out that Miley Cyrus is very familiar with this painful emotional issue. According to an April 8 story by Perez Hilton, the “Bangerz” singer discussed her previous battles with depression during an interview with “Elle”.

Between twerking and globe trotting many people would be surprised to learn that one of Hollywood’s most powerful celebrities once suffered from depression so severe that she locked herself in her room. In fact, Miley’s father, Billy Ray Cyrus, had to break the door down to get her out of her room. While the world considers Miley to be one of the sexiest stars on the planet, the singer has not always had a poised sense of self confidence.

It’s totally okay to feel sad. I went through a time where I was really depressed. Like, I locked myself in my room and my dad had to break my door down. It was a lot to do with, like, I had really bad skin, and I felt really bullied because of that. But I never was depressed because of the way someone else made me feel, I just was depressed.” -Miley Cyrus
