Miley Cyrus is among the celebrity friends of Cory Monteith that have spoken out about his recent death. Cyrus, however, has begun taking action to commemorate the Glee actor.
“I know that Cory had a foundation that he was interested in doing, and they put that out and said, ‘you know, if you want to be part of that make sure you donate to that,” said Miley in a recent interview with ET Canada.” And people so quickly go trend things on Twitter, but they don’t actually go push the button that’s actually happening.” Monteith’s death was due to a drug overdose. The Glee actor had a long history of drug abuse and struggle to overcome his addiction. Before his death, he completed a stint in rehab.
During the interview, Miley Cyrus also spoke about her career and her message to the haters. “Haters keep me mad motivated. People that are, I guess, jealous, that kind of just hate on me, make me want to do even better.” The formal Disney star has been receiving a lot of criticism and praise for her new style. She even got a shout out on a track from Jay Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail.
“Once I left my show I didn’t want anyone around that was going to tell me the way that I was going to do things. I wanted to go make mistakes, go be who I was going to be.” Miley is now focused on her music career. “I want to win a Grammy.”
