It's been a little over a month since Miley Cyrus lost her dog Floyd to mysterious causes. Rumors of a potential coyote attack circled the feeds back in April, but speculation soon fizzled as it became clear the "We Can't Stop" singer wouldn't be sharing any more details outside of her sadness. Cyrus has been transparent with her grieving and translated the energy into giving powerhouse performances. Recently, however, Cyrus' heartache came to a head.
She shared a long letter with her Twitter followers wherein she confesses: "[sic] there’s nothing I want more than to lay and drown this pillow in my tears & think about all my shoulda, coulda, wouldas." She then muses on the human choice to feel pain while living in a world where "there are thousands of brilliant books to be read."
Cyrus never saw herself as Floyd's owner; Cyrus saw herself as Floyd's mother. "[sic] even though moms can’t always control it," she writes, "a mothers greatest responsibility is to keep their baby from anyone hurting them physically or emotionally." The letter reads more like a public diary entry than anything, a cathartic trip into her mind as she openly justifies her reasoning for staying in bed all day and being a "hopeless human." And, hey, that's okay. If that's what it takes to help her heal, than so be it. Cyrus is lucky to have her loyal Smilers rallying for her. "[sic] sad pupils are beautiful too," she writes. Yes, Miley, yes they are. (ONTD!)
