Miley Cyrus, 27, “gets very emotional listening to” the new song “Young & Sad” by Noah Cyrus, a source reported to a leading entertainment portal. The ballad, released by Miley’s 20-year-old little sister on May 15, is undoubtedly the most sensitive one yet.
The lyrics of the song that read “My sister’s like sunshine / Always bringing good light wherever she will go / And I was born to rain clouds / Blessed in her shadows,” reflecting what it feels like having an older sister become a Disney Channel superstar at the age of just 14. Miley was hit hard by the lyrics “because it just breaks her heart to think of her little sister hurting in any way,” says the source close to the later.
However, Miley didn’t learn about the anxieties of Noah in the new song by her sister. “It’s not something she’s just hearing about,” the source added. “Noah has always confided in her. The cyberbullying Noah dealt with as a child was incredibly hard on the whole family because it really took a toll on her. Miley has dealt with her share of cyberbullying too, but seeing it happen to her precious little sister hurt more than anything.”
The personal lyrics, either, did not rub Miley the wrong way; she ‘s happy that Noah uses music as an outlet. “Miley is so proud of Noah for taking the pain and putting it into her music and she’s so glad the world is finally seeing how talented Noah is” adds the source.
Noah is so talented, according to another insider, Miley thinks her sister’s singing and songwriting talents outweigh her own! “Miley thinks that Noah and the rest of her family are the ones that are the most talented in the family. Miley wishes that Noah would see what Miley sees, she considers her sister a genius.”
Meanwhile, Noah Cyrus opened up about what it was like growing up as the younger sister of Miley Cyrus. Her latest album, “The End of Everything,” 20-year-old Noah, sang “My sister’s like sunshine, bringing good light wherever she’ll go / and I was born to rain clouds, blessed in her shadows.”
Noah went live on Instagram over the weekend and expressed emotionally on her lyrics. “I think just the message in the second verse, being born in the family I was in, everyone gave me such a hard time for having a hard time being Miley’s little sister,” Noah explained as she cried, reports People. “But you know, I always felt like I was that person that no one gave an s–t about due to what people said to me online.”
The songstress Noah said it was “unbearable” to live through.
“And that’s why I write, ‘My sister’s like sunshine, bringing good light wherever she’ll go/and I was born to rain clouds, blessed in her shadows.’ Because, that’s why everybody always says to me, that no matter what, I was going to be in that shadow,” she clarified.
It took a toll on Noah’s emotional and mental well-being to be repeatedly told that she would remain in the shadow of her sister-singer forever.
“It was either that or that I wasn’t enough in some way, whether it was the way I look or the way I am,” she added, “Like I said the other day, sometimes I feel like I don’t even breathe right sometimes.”
Well, the elder sister was there with Noah all the time while making it big in the music industry as late, Miley, 27 had herself fair share of ups and downs in her Hollywood career but remained protective toward her little sister.
The famous Disney Channel star also shared some of the advice she gave her little sister, who has been vocal about anxiety and depression issues over the years.
“I always tell Noah, keep your Instagram comments turned off,” Miley said. “Never read anything that anyone says about you. Don’t Google yourself.”
