    Miley Cyrus is opening up in Elle magazine about getting through a dark period in her life .

    The former Disney darling revealed that she's "struggled with depression" and that "it's totally okay to feel sad."

    "I went through a time where I was really depressed. Like, I locked myself in my room and my dad had to break my door down," she confessed.

    "It was a lot to do with, like, I had really bad skin, and I felt really bullied because of that. Because I never was depressed because of the way someone else made me feel, I just felt depressed."

    The "Adore You" singer added that "every person can benefit from talking to somebody. I'm the most antimedication person, but some people need medicine, and there was a time where I needed some too."

    Cyrus also shared that even though it may look like everything is glamorous and fun for her, not everything is as it appears.

    "There's not much that I'm closed off about, and the universe gave me all that so I could help people feel like they don't have to be something they're not or feel like they have to be fake happy," she told the publication.

    "There's nothing worse than being fake happy."

    And when it comes to her work, and her current Bangerz tour, Cyrus has been relentless in her efforts to please her fans.

    "On tour, I'm obsessed, because it's such an investment. Honestly, like, I'm not making any money on this tour—I put all the money into the tour."

    She continued, "My managers all think I'm bat-s--t crazy, but I think it's good for me in the long run."

    Unfortunately for the songstress, she's had to reschedule and postpone several of her tour dates due to a severe allergic reaction to medication.

    E! News just exclusively reported that the first two of her European dates will be affected due to yet another health setback.
