In Instagram Live chat with old pal Demi Lovato on Tuesday, the 27-year-old singer Miley Cyrus was discussing how shortly after her infamous twerking performance alongside Robin Thicke during their controversial performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, she struggled with her body image after she was trolled online for being too thin.
Miley Cyrus revealed that there was about a three-year period where she wouldn’t wear shorts or skirts on stage after haters dragged her for how she looks, comparing her to a turkey.
Miley Cyrus said, “I basically went through two or three years where I wouldn’t wear shorts. I stopped wearing skirts on stage, all this shit because after the VMAs and I had on my cute little n*de bodysuit, everyone started comparing me to a turkey and putting a turkey in my outfit.”
Miley Cyrus recalled, “I was just so skinny and so pasty and they kept putting me next to this turkey, and I was feeling so bad on myself that I did not wear a bikini for, like, two years and no one thought that that would ever make me feel some type of way.

“I think what was so hard about it was my brand has always been about being so unapologetically myself and being confident, and the worse thing that I would feel like I would be to my fans is lying or a fraud,” Miley Cyrus continued.
Demi Lovato, 27, then chimed in, saying, “First of all, I’m so sad that you went through that, and I had no idea,” Lovato said. “I wish I could’ve been there, but I didn’t know and I feel like we’ve gone through times where we’re closer and then distant—and that’s fine, that’s what friends do. I just wish I could’ve been there for you. But if that ever f–ing happens again, you better call me.”
Miley Cyrus confessed. “I felt like having this persona of being the most confident girl on the planet was actually kind of fraud because I was so insecure on the inside that in my personal life I wasn’t even wearing bathing suits and shorts. And when I was wearing like my little leotards and things, I had on f**king four pairs of tights because I was so insecure.”
Miley Cyrus admitted, “When I did my song, ‘Confident,’ my message was that I was so confident. But in reality, I was working out so much and eating a strict diet,” the “I Love Me” singer admitted. “Now I’m heavier but more confident. I’d take that over being thinner and miserable any day.”
“After going through so much stuff that I did I realized that the quality of life I want isn’t in strict dieting; it’s being happy,” Miley Cyrus continued.
“I sometimes still struggle with body dysmorphia … but I’m grateful for the health and the strength that I have today. That helps me be grounded in my body and to stop those negative body thoughts. If you can’t look at yourself and say you’re beautiful that’s fine. Just look at yourself and be grateful,” Miley Cyrus said.
