Kelly Clarkson Reflects on Being ‘Young’ With Miley Cyrus Cover

Kelly Clarkson got nostalgic on her talk show on Wednesday (Jan. 10), taking on Miley Cyrus’ reflective power ballad, “Used to Be Young,” during her popular Kellyoke segment.

“You tell me time has done changed me / That’s fine, I’ve had a good run / I know I used to be crazy / That’s ’cause I used to be young,” Clarkson belts in the chorus of the track.

“Used To Be Young,” released in 2023, marks Cyrus’ first piece of new music since the release of Endless Summer Vacation back in March. The album, her eighth studio effort, debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, and also arrived alongside its own Backyard Sessions via Disney+. 

“These lyrics were written almost 2 years ago at the beginning of my ESV. It was at a time I felt misunderstood,” Cyrus wrote about the song over the summer. “I have spent the last 18 months painting a sonic picture of my perspective to share with you. The time has arrived to release a song that I could perfect forever. Although my work is done, this song will continue to write itself everyday. The fact it remains unfinished is a part of its beauty. That is my life at this moment ….. unfinished yet complete.”
