Trace made rare comments about his life during an Instagram Q&A
Miley Cyrus’ brother Trace Cyrus recently made some rare comments about his family.
The musician, 34, reportedly got candid in a Q&A on his Instagram Stories on Monday, where he offered insight on how having a “famous family” impacted his career.
While Trace said he loves his family “so much,” he thinks his career may have been more fruitful if he hadn’t had his family connections.
“I love my family so much, but I think I’d be much more successful if I wasn’t part of a famous family. People immediately want to judge me and discredit all my hard work because of who I’m related to. But that’s so far from the truth. I got a record deal without anyone from my label even knowing who I was related to ’til after they signed me,” he wrote, referencing his former band Metro Station.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Trace — who previously dated Brenda Song and Demi Lovato — also reflected on the importance of protecting his romantic relationships at this stage in his life.
“After having such public relationships in the past, I’ve decided any of my current or future relationships will be much more private,” the musician explained. “So even if I did have a girlfriend I wouldn’t tell you guys. Sorry.”
However, that doesn’t mean Trace won’t speak on his love for his family.
