In an interview with Grazia, Noah revealed that Lady Gaga is an inspiration to her. "Lady Gaga has influenced [my perception of] self-love. I have definitely struggled with that and I think every girl or woman can look at herself in the mirror for an hour and point out everything she hates about herself. Gaga has taught me to not do that. My favourite thing that I've ever seen from her was when people were giving her hard time after the Super Bowl about her stomach, and she posted the picture of her stomach from that night and was like, 'I love me and if this is the one thing that pi**es people off then it doesn't bother me," she said. "I really looked up to her for that because I don't think I could ever zoom in on a part of my body and be like, 'You guys hate this but I love this about me' because I'd be embarrassed. She's taught me not to worry about that stuff, I have definitely struggled with. My mum will tell you 'Noah will stare at herself in mirror in the car and pick out things she doesn't like about herself' and that's just how I am. I think that comes from reading comments on Instagram and people pointing out things they don't like about you. So I've looked up to Gaga for calling that out and being like, 'I don't care'."

Noah also told Grazia that she doesn't read social media comments, at the recommendation of her sister, Miley. "I haven't done it in a while, I've definitely learnt to not. It's definitely easier now, but when I was 13 or 14, I hated it. I wish you could have turned comments off back then. I would have told my 13-year-old self to not stare at yourself in the mirror because you're not going to hate yourself forever. I've definitely grown out of that. This is my body, you just have to learn to love yourself."


She Struggled with Body Dysmorphia

During a 2020 interview with NPR, Cyrus revealed that her song Lonely was inspired by her personal battles. "I struggle with depression and anxiety, and I have since I was very young. And I also have suffered from body and face dysmorphia. I just could not look in the mirror," she explained. "I've learned how to control that. But for a while, you know, it's hard because a lot of people around me tell me not to let the public and their view weigh in on my life."

In a recent Instagram post, Noah revealed that landing a role on American Horror Stories was a big deal to her, because the show was influential in helping her deal with her body dysmorphia.  "i spent my years from 13 – 17 kinda being the kid that locked herself away in her dark room cause being out in the world made me feel so lost and so insecure. my body dysmorphia and depression was just eating away at my soul. it was so much pain for such a little body. but something about the show gave me comfort.. there was something else as painful … out there as i felt on the inside. this show has been such a huge… inspiration to me my music and so much more," she wrote.
