Los Angeles, Aug 24 (IANS) Singer Noah Cyrus has opened up about her battle with depression and how it has shaped her new music.
“This EP is mostly just about how my emotions have been, and about my anxiety, and about how I’ve been struggling with depression, and how it’s okay to feel those feelings,” the 18-year-old artist explained during an interview with L’Officiel USA, reports people.com.
“A lot of people like to judge you, and make fun of you on the Internet, and people make you feel crazy whenever you’re in a depression or having anxiety or having a panic attack,” Cyrus continued.
“It’s about that and being sad and having your emotions and not being able to ignore the feelings you’re having,” she told the outlet in reference to her EP (Extended Play), which released this month.
Cyrus also revealed she has her older brother Trace Cyrus in part to thank for introducing her to the punk genre.
“I think that probably stems from growing up with Trace Cyrus in my house because he was the king of emo,” Cyrus told the outlet about her brother, who was previously the frontman for the band Metro Station.
