Miley Cyrus is so sad: ‘I’ve never felt so alone. It feels so scary getting old’

Miley Cyrus

Kaiser has already covered most of the pictures from last night’s Night of Stars event. Here’s the straggler of the bunch — Miley Cyrus in Marc Jacobs. Miley was on hand to present Marc with the Superstar Award, and she really dressed down for this event. No tongue either. Miley wore a sparkly green, backless halter dress that seemed pretty shapeless. I bet it was killing her to not be walking around with a front wedgie. Maybe she had one underneath for good measure. Miley does look good here. Amazingly enough, her theme of the evening wasn’t all, “Look at me!”

Despite reeling in her attention-seeking tendencies for the evening, Miley seems to be having a hard time. Miley uploaded a wistful photo to her Instagram that was captioned “And I’ve never felt so alone. It feels so scary getting old.” She’s 20! Miley quickly deleted the picture and caption, but the Mail got a screenshot. Poor Miley. It must be so difficult to declare yourself “the most famous woman in the world” and then have to endure five whole minutes when the world stops paying attention. Her Bangerz success must feel anticlimactic. Miley could never handle what Lady Gaga is going through right now. It would be meltdown city.

Here are some more introspective tweets courtesy of Miley’s downtime:

She’s so “bored” because she misses the twerking, y’all. Oh look, it’s Miley’s Chanel blanket and pillow. She must be bored to tweet photos like this:

Update: It turns out Miley was quoting a Lorde lyric about being alone! She still deleted the sad picture with the caption, so I figure she was just looking for attention and got it.

Don’t even get me started on this picture of Miley with “Michael Jackson” at her Bangerz release party.

    Worse yet, we’re bored of you Miley.

  2. Quinn Parker says:

    She is really a creepy person…lots of pathology going on with this girl.

  3. Not says:

    Sad being in your 20′s….feeling like 40, I MEAN OLD.Im having a fieldday!

  4. Mia4S says:

    Yeah this is expected. She’s nothing new or original so people will get bored and move on to the next flavour. She’ll freak (as many 20 year olds would) and then the real show begins. Sad…but predictable.

  5. EmmaV1 says:

    I know she’s going to get so much crap for her “I feel old quote” with people going “you’re only 20, omg dumb, stupid girl,” and yes she said something a few weeks ago to the lines of “I’ve never felt happier in my whole life”….but she probably only said that to put on a brave face and hide how hurt she was by the breakup.

    And again, Liam is no prize pig. He’s been photographed having TWO PUBLIC fights with Miley admitting he has anger issues…I wonder how many physical fights he’s done in private too. Not to mention she’s worth 140 million, he’s worth less than 10 million and will be NOTHING after Hunger Games ends…look at Knightley, Bloom, Grint, Watson, Pattinson, Lautner, Stewart, Holmes, Chris Hemsworth, etc….nobody has any career outside their franchises that did not depend on them to be successful.

    Anyway getting back to the old quote….so many people say dumb stuff like that and her quote isn’t offensive or terrible or even stupid. Just worded awkwardly. Teens do go through fears of death, of being older and alone and never finding love, etc. Sounds normal to me.

    And it’s so unfair to slam her for comments like this when people like Emma Watson says THREE TIMES “I’m going back to Brown because I value education over acting” but then whoops, here comes the Fall Semester and she’s not back again for the third time….and then people get all defensive and are like “Well at least she’s getting a college education”.

    • StormsMama says:

      Good points.

      I think Miley has an IT factor and I like her. But I an old and her 20 year old “I’m old” is akin to you can’t be 20 on sugar mountain. We all go through it. Let her grow.

    • Belle Epoch says:

      Emma Watson? WTH? The worst thing she did was postpone Brown because she can’t do everything at the same time. She’s not parading around half naked and stoned out of her mind giving long idiotic interviews about being The Most Important Woman in The World and sticking her butt in Terry Richardson’s camera.

      Of course Miley is bored. She’s STUPID.

    • Nic says:

      Ya. I remember 20 being kinda sad and lonely too. I looked better then but I feel better now. I think it’s pretty common, actually. And it’s also common to be super happy one week and super down the next. Life happens, moods change, and horny 20 something hormones are destabalizing.

      Now, if you want to talk about her crass materialism and the fact that she has a massive fortune without the moral sense to share it with people less fortunate, I’m all aboard the antiMiley (and anti most multimillionaires) train.

    • elisa says:

      I agree about Miley. I remember being in my 20s and going through my first big breakup and thinking that I felt so old all the sudden. I was 25 at the time, so not too much older. Now (at 33) I look back at how silly and childish I still was even then. Miley probably will do the same too. Your first big heartbreak jars you.

      I also agree with you about Liam. I think that he is Lautner 2.0 in terms of his career prospects. I’ve only seen him in the first Hunger Games film and I just didn’t see any charisma from him.

      I wouldn’t put him in the same category as Kiera Knightley or Emma Watson, though. They are far better than him. Kiera had some great roles in P&P, Atonement, The Duchess, etc.

      I just really like Emma Watson. It’s going to be difficult for her to be seen beyond Hermione, but she’s trying. That said, I don’t really keep up with her much, but didn’t she “study abroad” at Oxford or Cambridge through Brown a bit?

    • Leila in Wunderland says:

      It was actually the interviewer who called her the most famous woman in the world.

      Sometimes I feel old at 21 too, especially when I see a little kid or a teenager. I like the freedoms that come with being an adult, but sometimes it feels like I had more fun when I was a kid.

  6. Kaye says:

    Crap. Now I feel sorry for her. Disdain was so much easier.

  7. haley says:

    im sorry, but she is not good-looking. the old hair was better because it covers that face.

  8. rosemary says:

    By isn’t she the one that said that she’s obsessed with being alone? This girl is a huge contradiction she says she’d never be the type of person to sing about drugs yet she did, she said she’ll never grow out her hair long anymore now she says she is… ugh she honestly has irked me since she was Hannah Montana

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      Don’t forget how she said she didn’t need to get mostly-naked like some pop stars, and then proceeded to get mostly-naked.

    • MCraw says:

      because everything we say one day is something we all stick to everyday of our lives after…. I think we’ve all made statements that we change our minds about in some form or another. faulting her for being HUMAN is off to me; how we feel, as women, about our hair, relationship status, children etc all changes week to week, month to month, year to year…. now, criticize her for what she’s actually doing. not for being complicated, like, yknow, most people.

      • MonicaQ says:

        There’s complicated and then pulling a 180 on your personality in less than 3 years. “I’ll never do drugs, that’s not the type of person I am.” “I don’t feel the need to strip down and be sexy to sell music.” She can do what she wants but it’s like politicians–don’t say ish and then do the opposite and then not expect people to point it out.

      • Nina W says:

        She’s not complicated, she’s got the attention span of a gnat and no impulse control, of course she changes her tune every five minutes, she’s not even listening to herself, she’s just shooting her silly mouth off as usual..

  9. Hautie says:

    Oh, good grief. Until she finds another man I suspect she is not going to be happy. Miley got publicly dumped. And that has to burn a little.

    Maybe this will perk her up. I know I laughed like a fool when I saw it…

  10. serena says:

    Honestly, I feel sorry for her. Yeah she called this upon herself and her attitude really pissed me off (as well as her lack of clothes) but I believe she’s feeling empty now. Hope she’ll outgrow this phase brilliantly and learn from it.

  11. Willa says:

    If she thinks 20 is old,she might start messing with her face sooner than later. Seems like she has a issues with age.

  12. Robot Rosie says:

    Why do so many people feel the need to retweet her saying she’s bored?

    I just don’t understand. Also, the Molly thing has always been a bad idea, but now it is just so played now. Find something better to talk about.

  13. murphstein says:

    “I’ve never felt so alone, feels so scary getting old” is a lyric from Lorde’s Ribs :) . Excellent song!

  14. Nightweed says:

    Nobody likes you, Miley, and those pretending to are just using you. Get used to being alone.

  15. Justme says:

    Think she was on an attention-high in past month and she realizes it’s fleeting and she may have oversatuated herself. A case of the candle burning out. She is bored because nobody is paying attention to her this week, she is having relevancy withdrawals. Maybe she is FINALLY starting to undertand that most were laughing at her in past while, not the IT girl she thought she was, more like the GO AWAY girl now.

  16. judyjudy says:

    I freakin’ love that dress.

  17. Anonymous says:

    Her teeth are HUGE, she has major CHOMPERS, what a GIGANTIC overbite she has. Totally beaver-ish.

  18. chloe says:

    First I want to say Miley looks pretty good in the green dress, it could be a little more fitted, but it’s a nice change from the usual outfits she’s not wearing.
    As for the being bored thing, she’s 20, I remember at that age that any break-up or life changing event seemed to be the end of the world to me, now in my 40′s I look back at my 20′s and roll my eyes. But on that note when I was feeling melancholy I would write my feelings down in a notebook, these days tweens feel like they need to write their emotions on the internet for everyone to read.

    • Becky1 says:

      Good point, Chloe. I’m 41 and when I was in my teens and early 20′s I kept a journal. Some of the stuff I wrote back then was really cringe worthy. I’m so glad that Facebook and Twitter weren’t around at that point because I’m sure I would have posted some stupid s**t when I was drunk, high or feeling sorry for myself. I really think it was easier to be a young person in the 1980′s and 1990′s than it is now. You could make mistakes, do dumb stuff, etc. without having it be so public. There was no worry about someone taking your picture and posting it online, etc.

  19. Lizzie says:

    those are lorde lyrics from her song Ribs. it’s a fantastic song.
    “This dream isn’t feeling sweet/we’re reeling through the midnight streets/i’ve never felt more alone/it feels so scary getting old.”
    Teenage/twenty-something girls tend to caption their pictures with barely relevant lyrics they like. Just saying. I have an unreal number of pictures captioned with mumford and sons lyrics for no apparent reason.

    • Amanduh says:

      I definitely agree…when I first got on Facebook, so many of my status updates were song lyrics (cause I’m soooo deep like that):
      “I’m more than a feeling…” (fav song!)
      “I’m over the hills and far away…”
      “Feeling Dazed and Confused ” (fav movie and I love Zeppelin :)

  20. eliza says:

    She needs to STFU. End of story.

  21. Stef Leppard says:

    I didn’t even read the post because I can’t stand her. I just came here to say that I heard “Wrecking Ball” on the radio and thought “Oh geez, Demi Lovato does NOT have the voice for a ballad.” Then I shazamed it and it was Miley! Why do people celebrate someone as talentless as she is? Just because she takes her clothes off? That just doesn’t seem I treating or entertaining to me.

  22. shannon says:

    looks like she got a head start on the injections. is it just me or does she look extra waxy? those lips look a bit puffy too.

  23. K-MAC says:

    can’t-stand-this-girl. What an ungrateful little twit. Someone please take her to a place in the world where people are starving, dying, killing one another. She has no idea how lucky she is.

    Bored and old at 20…UGH!!! Give me a break.

  24. moptop says:

    I guess I’m off-base with this, because I don’t see anyone else saying it, but I see some signs of mental illness : the hyper sexuality, she doesn’t seem to sleep at night, manic thoughts and speech, crashing lows. I feel for her, I really do.

  25. bettyrose says:

    I really like that dress. Also, addiction to drama & attention is a real thing with real withdrawal symptoms.

  26. Samtha says:

    I remember saying stuff like that all the time when I was twenty, so no digs at her from me.

  27. Jayna says:

    Leaving your teens and turning 20 does feel strange for many. I had a neighbor’s daughter just say the other day it feels odd not being 19, that 20 sounds like an adult, that she’s just a college kid.

  28. pnichols says:

    It’s really a shame that she doesn’t have the support around her to guide her thru all of this. I know I wouldn’t want to be alone. She really does have a good voice, she’s young and is not the first and won’t be the last performer to act this way. I just know if it was my child I would do whatever I could to help her achieve her goals, stay grounded and know that she is loved.

  29. kim says:

    Ya 20 is the age of when you’re not a girl not yet a woman… :p lol wish she’d do a remake it would make me laugh so hard!! Sigh so boring… miley is a crackhead and looks it too

  30. HB says:

    It’s probably a Liam theme photo…but for the record, while I myself do not look forward to growing old, my compensation will be watching miley develope into minus the tan tanning mom. They are before and after shots.

  31. Claudia says:

    This is a first. She actually looks really pretty here, for a change. I love the dress.

  32. Dommy Dearest says:

    Well should be we’ll. But we must not expect any type of accuracy when it comes to little Miley. She wasn’t taught what is seen as a proper education but rather how to be the most famous person in the world. She doesn’t need to know how to spell at all, that is for us peasants!

    Could her five minutes be dwindling? :D
    Her lips are beginning to look painful. I’m not sure why it looks like her face is being pulled too tightly or what but she needs to lay off whatever she’s injecting. Those nails are so tacky.

  33. magpie says:

    She hasn’t had 5 minutes, she’s had 5 hours. Girl has been pro since a child. Hollywood years aren’t like real people years so I’ll cut her some flack for feeling “old”.

    I wachted Miley the movement and what I saw was someone extremely driven who was ready to do anything to be number 1. Hopefully she’ll be able to grow up some more on her own terms esp. emotionally. I think that she did that a bit on her year off with Liam, but she needs to do that more. When you see the “Backyard sessions” you see that she really does have talent and range. Like Madonna, she’ll just reinvent herself over and over.

    I know I’m in the minority here.

  34. K-rock says:

    I just literally yelled “Getting old??” when I read the header. Jeez if she’s getting old, then I need to be taken out to pasture :/

  35. BooBooLaRue says:

    What Miley meant to say is: It feels so scary getting irrelevant”.

  36. MaryBeth says:

    Well. I’m 38 and she’s 20-something. Yep. I didn’t like her before and I sure as hell don’t like her now! Old??? Ugh……………………..

  37. Leila in Wunderland says:

    I love the color of this dress and the matching eye shadow. She still needs a makeover though.

  38. Heliz says:

    Don’t feel sorry for her. She probably ‘popped molly’ on saturday, and everyone who has ever used xtc or mdma knows that if you take that drug on a saturday, a mini depression kicks in around tuesday. I really wonder how frequently she uses that stuff. I’ve seen it happen to my friends and myself, you tend to get a lot moodier when you use frequently.

  39. Seán says:

    While it’s undoubtedly stupid to whine about your age at 20, I understand where’s she’s coming from. I’m 22 years old and honestly, it only feels like yesterday that I was 16. Life just seemed to speed up immensely once I hit that age.

    It’s funny because three years ago I started college, aged 19, and one of my good friends was 25 at the time and I remember jokingly telling him how old he was. My three years in college flew by and in another three quick years I’ll be 25 too and ‘old’.

    I’m not necessarily upset about getting older and I know 25 is not old by any means but you spend the first 16 years of your life hoping to be taken seriously and treated like an adult and once you hit that mature age, you just realise how fast life flashes by.

  40. LadyL says:

    If she’s scared now, the bitch is going to jump off a bridge when forty comes knocking.

  41. Runs with Scissors says:

    I actually think she was being sarcastic with the “old” quote and I don’t think it was a shout out to Lorde, I think it was an attempt at a put down which was quickly deleted.

    I think she feels on top of the world and the center of the universe and she’s loving it and was being snotty to all the supposed “haters.”

  42. Asdfg says:

    No sympathy from me. Cry me a river.

    I like her look here and her make up too. She still looks mouse-y.

  43. Naddie says:

    Even though it’s Miley, I understand this as a women’s issue. I started to freak out about age when I turned 14. It never stops.
