Noah Cyrus is not letting anything ruin her engagement.
The singer took to social media to condemn internet bullies who tried to bring her down after she became engaged.
Since I’ve announced something so pure and happy for me and my life the internet and commenters have been working so hard to take the joy, love, and happiness from me,” the “July” singer wrote via her Instagram story Thursday — just three days after announcing her engagement to Pinkus.
Cyrus, 23, said that the internet trolls are the “same people” who assaulted her for her “face and body” when she was 11 years old.
She went on to say that the hateful comments lead her to believe she “didn’t deserve to live” at the time because she was “not good enough” and didn’t meet up the trolls’ “beauty standards.”
“I’ve been reminded again today how deeply f—ked the internet is and how it turned me against myself and lead [sic] myself to believe I should kill myself, wasn’t worth living, ended up suicidal and depending on drugs.”
However, the singer stated that she considers herself “lucky” to be in a position where negative ideas about her do not “trigger” her into “hurting [herself] once again.”
“We live in 2023 we have GOT to stop judging people for who they love, what they look like, where they come from, and how THEY live THEIR lives,” Cyrus wrote in a later story post.
Noah has previously spoken about her struggles with depression and anxiety.
Ahead of the release of her track “Lonely,” the singer collaborated with Ad Council in 2019 to openly acknowledge her battle with depression.
“I felt stuck in this place that I could not get out of for a while. I felt like I had no control over my life,” the singer said.
A year later, on her birthday, Cyrus wrote on Instagram that she wasn’t sure she’d “be here” to witness 21.
“Every day is work when it comes to your mental health and personal battles. not every day is going to be hell and not every day is going to be perfect. I’m still figuring that out,” she wrote in a since-deleted post.
“Thank you for understanding how growing up so publicly was hard on me.. thank you for your support and continuing to grow with me,” she said to her fans.
The “Young & Sad” singer also spoke up in July about her former struggles with addiction and how easy it was for her to get drugs while growing up in the spotlight.
“Once I felt that it was possible to silence things out for a second and numb your pain, it was over. It just kind of becomes this dark pit, bottomless pit,” she told Rolling Stone.
Noah has been in a state of “recovery” since 2020.
“I wake up in the mornings, and I’m able to look in a mirror and go on about my day without hating myself. I’m able to comfort myself and nurture myself.”
