Miley Cyrus Admits to Having Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)

These young pop stars don't have it easy. A little over a month after Selena Gomez reportedly canceled the last dates on her world tour so she could get a handle on her lupus disease, Miley Cyrus is coming clean about a sickness she's suffering from herself.

While it's long been said that the 21-year-old singer's struggled with tachycardia — a heart rate that exceeds the normal range — most of her life, now she says that's not the only difficulty she's had to face. In an interview with E! News (via International Business Times), she admits to having attention deficit disorder, which includes symptoms such as poor concentration, hyperactivity and impulsivity: "It's funny, because I have ADD, obviously, and I get really bored otherwise. So I've made so many extra costumes and extra set lists so I don't have to do the same thing every day. Otherwise I'm going to hate touring."

On the plus side, the "We Can't Stop" crooner's also made some progress in the health department. She recently tweeted, "2 months no cigs #proudofmyself." An entire 60 days without smoking cigarettes? We'll take it!

What do you think of MiCy's admission? Do you think should slow down because of her tachycardia, along with her other difficulties? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below, or on our Miley Cyrus message board.

It's Miley Cyrus like you've never seen her before!

    Some of you are pretty heartless! She also has had tachycardia for her life, maybe it’s not JUST ADD since apparently according to you, ADD doesn’t cause any struggles. POTS, a disorder that I have causes all of the symptoms of ADD plus tachycardia and it makes standing quite difficult as I get dizzy from standing and sometimes I pass out. Maybe, because POTS is so regularly missed by dr.’s as they are still stuck in the old age and saying that our drops in blood pressure and spikes in heart rate are “all in our head” she has some other underlying issues with her autonomic nervous system. And maybe, you should take what your mama always told you and DO IT! If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all. Leave the poor celebrities alone! If news crews didn’t feed on their every move, maybe some of them wouldn’t act out so much.

    Cry me a river! Seriously! I have had ADD since I was in like the 4th grade. It is really not that big of a deal!

    • Taylor

      She never once said that her ADD was why she’s acting the way she is. Learn to read, maybe? All she said was that she gets really bored touring so she makes extra set lists and such. Don’t be so quick to judge and take a better look at the article before you talk about things you don’t know.

    I’m surprised she admitted it.

    omg ADD?! Cry me a river.

    Lots of people have ADD . She cant make that an excuse as to why shes so rebellious. She just craves for attention. Shes an attention seeker and will do anything in her power to make people like her. Smh doesn’t fool me…
