Does Miley Cyrus have drug-induced mental illness from Molly? She has admitted to using Molly in her song “We Can’t Stop” when she says she’s “dancing with Molly.” This has created a lot of controversy among parents, who are concerned that their children could start emulating Miley Cyrus by picking up a bad drug habit. After her performance at the VMAs, she’s had tongues wagging all over the place about her current state of mind. Now that her relationship has apparently broken up for good, it raises even more questions about her stability, or lack thereof.
Because we know for a fact that Miley Cyrus takes Molly, and that Molly can cause many terrible symptoms, including mental illness, it only stands to reason that people could begin questioning whether the drug Molly could cause Cyrus to be mentally ill.
Licensed social worker Nicole Knepper, who has not treated Cyrus, raised this very question in her blog post entitled “Can or Won’t Stop; Is Miley Cyrus Mentally Ill?” Knepper says that Miley Cyrus’ behavior is very concerning, explaining:
…her behavior has given me the Uh-ohs, but more recently, her hyper-sexuality, lack of impulse control and boundaries, rapid mood swings, admitted drug use, compulsive tweeting and spending, extreme displays of irritability and argumentative behavior, difficulty sleeping, and hoarding of animals, all documented on Twitter by Miley herself for her over 13 million followers, are not just typical adolescent behavior.
The drug Molly is documented to cause psychological disturbances such as depression, anxiety, seizures, hallucinations and suicidal thoughts or actions. In the long-term, Molly can cause permanent brain damage, and some have remarked that Miley Cyrus’ performance reminded them of someone with brain damage, especially when she was sticking her tongue out in a bizarre manner. This same type of behavior has been observed in people with mental disabilities and those with mental illness. People who have mental challenges can sometimes also exhibit the hyper sexuality that Miley Cyrus seems to be exhibiting.
Besides the mental effects, Molly can cause many physical symptoms including tremors, liver damage, hyperthermia, intracranial bleeding and a host of other physical problems. In the short term, Molly can cause impulsive behaviors and memory loss as well. Certainly, it would be fair to say that Miley Cyrus’ appearing naked in her new video Wrecking Ball could be something that may have been decided upon impulsively.
Back in July of 2013, Dr. Drew came out and said that he thought Miley Cyrus does have mental illness, and that was long before her VMA Awards performance. One can only imagine what Dr. Drew thinks about her mental health after viewing the VMA performance.
What do you think? Could Miley Cyrus be afflicted with a mental illness? If so, was it something she was born with or is it mental illness that is induced solely by the drug Molly? Weigh in below and let us know what you think. Should Miley Cyrus stop taking Molly? Does it cause mental illness or is it a catalyst for her creative juices?
