Miley Cyrus Looks Back on Her Scrutinized Early Years on Used to Be Young

Miley Cyrus Looks Back on Her Scrutinized Early Years on Used to Be Young

And this gets us here.
I know it used to be crazy. I know it used to be fun.
Miley Cyrus in tears, singing about her past while giving a subtle nod to her Disney days.
This is life. Hold on tight.
Hannah Montana was the first thing that I ever did. Disney just kind of picked me up.
Fans are speculating Miley’s new single, Used to Be Young, is about finding herself after her House of Mouse era.
More importantly, this song is about looking towards the future and where I’m going.
Her latest confessions about the track coming from a special airing on the Disney-owned network ABC.
It’s optimistic and there’s a sadness. It’s allowing sadness and joy to be happening simultaneously, which happens all the time.
Yeah, and in the music video teaser, Miley pays homage wearing a Mickey Mouse t-shirt.
I know I used to be crazy. Messed up, but God, was it fun.
I’m not driven by kind of just my own self and wanting more and more in my own life.
You know, it’s just kind of about doing more. And I love music, so getting to make it.
Adding more fuel to the speculation, Miley also pokes fun at her days as Hannah Montana.
Say what?
Yep, specifically this memorable moment from the Disney Channel series.
The drama.
Let’s always say goodbye to everyone now.
Yeah, yeah.
Hannah’s for kids. Miley’s for grown ass men in heels.
Do what feels true to you and like what you want to do.
Used to be young seems to be a song close to Miley’s heart.
In a post featuring the lyrics, she shares that they were written almost two years ago during a time she felt misunderstood.
Well, the time has arrived to release a song that I could perfect forever.
It never goes exactly how I think it’s going to, but somehow it always ends up being better.
While Miley believes her work is done on the ballad, she notes that it will continue to write itself every day.
The fact it remains unfinished is a part of its beauty. That is my life at this moment. Unfinished yet complete.
Artists, we’re sensitive people. We go through a lot.
Used to be young drops August 25th, a date which has special meaning to Miley.
I decided to release used to be young on August 25th because this particular date historically has been important to me personally and in my career.
