Los Angeles: Hollywood popstar Miley Cyrus has taken to Instagram to mourn the loss of her dog Mary Jane; while diving into her music to soothe and heal her.
"Mary Jane 5EVR. I wrote this song in Malibu years ago on a piano in a house that no longer exists. About my dog Mary Jane who is also gone now. A lot has changed over time. Mostly me," she wrote along with a video tribute to the dog.
"Music is my medicine. This song revolves around loss & heartache. Which I am currently experiencing after Mary Jane's passing. MJ was a true queen. She wore her grace, dignity & kindness like a crown. She will never be forgotten and will forever be missed. To know her is to love her. It has been my honour being her mom and best friend," she added.
Cyrus, who adopted the dog along with former husband Liam Hemsworth, shared the news in a series of Instagram Story posts.
"MJ was diagnosed with cancer over a year ago …. & since then multiple types and tumors," Cyrus revealed, adding: "I was told it'd be an uncertain amount of time until she's gone. Advised to spend every second savouring anything new. I had been for 10 years."
