Miley Cyrus opens up about why she doesn’t enjoy touring. The “Wrecking Ball” singer explained why touring isn’t the healthiest thing for her.

In the Used To Be Young video series posted to Cyrus’ TikTok account, the former Hannah Montana Star explains that traveling as a cheerleader helped her touring.

“That’s what people don’t really understand when they’re touring — that the show is only 90 minutes, but that’s your life,” Cyrus explained. “When you deliver a certain level of intensity and excellence, there should be an equal level of recovery and rest. There’s a certain amount of ego that has to come into play that I feel gets stretched when I’m touring. And once that switch is on, it’s difficult to turn it off. I think training your ego to be active every single night – that’s the hardest switch to turn off for me.”

She continued, “Having the relationship between you and other people as a subject and an observer every day is not healthy for me because it erases my humanity and my connection and without my humanity [and] My connection: I can’t be a songwriter, that’s my priority.”

This isn’t the first time Cyrus has spoken out against touring. Earlier this year, the singer made it clear she didn’t feel like touring again, and it wasn’t because she felt disconnected from her fans.

“It’s been a minute,” Cyrus told British Vogue of his tour. “After the last one [headline arena] Show that I did it [in 2014], I saw it more as a question. And I can not.'”

“Not only can’t,” she continued, “because it’s not your ability, it’s my desire. Do I want to live my life for the pleasure or fulfillment of others than my own?”

Cyrus said performances “don’t come naturally,” adding, “It’s so isolating because when you’re in front of 100,000 people, you’re alone.”
