Miley Cyrus discloses in her autobiography titled "Miles to Go" that she has a heart condition called tachycardia, which is described as a condition when heart rate exceeds the range of a normal resting heart rate. "The type of tachycardia I have isn't dangerous. It won't hurt me, but it does bother me," she writes. "There is never a time on-stage when I'm not thinking about my heart."

Also dedicating an entire chapter in the tome to "Prince Charming", who is widely believed to be her ex-boyfriend Nick Jonas, Miley recalls the time when she was still dating him, writing "Wow! I was so in love." She goes on gushing, "Do you know what I'm talking about? The kind of love where the sun could shine or not shine all day long and you wouldn't care."

On her writing the song "7 Things I Hate About You" soon after she broke up with Nick, the teen sensation explains, "I was angry when I wrote 7 Things. I wanted to punish him, to get back at him for hurting me. It starts with a list of what I 'hate.' But I'm not a hater. My heart knew from the start that it was going to turn into a love song. Why does he get a love song? Because I don't hate him."

In her just released "Miles to Go", Miley Cyrus also opens up about losing her grandfather and becoming the target of public's mock after appearing topless in Vanity Fair magazine. She additionally addresses on her latest photo scandal that was considered offending Asian people.

I have tachycardia, and am not a big fan of Miley. I know having it sucks but its not that big of a deal. Im not going to say anything negative about Miley because of it but im also not going to give her sympathy because it is a very easily handled syndrome. Yall must remember, she is only human, stop making her seem like the best thing since sliced bread.

just because shes a great singer and actress she should still be treated with the same respect everyone would want. and the hannah montana movie's awesome.

Hey, who are you to judge anyone? She may have tachycardia (she may not). What do yo know? Your comment is so biased.

Does she want sympathy or something?

oh please, lots of people have tachycardia..they're making a big deal out of something very common. Another attention-grabber, or pull for sympathy.

poor miley, tachycardia should give people a reason to stop being nasty

Thats such BS. Tachycardia at that age has an underlying reason. And if her heart rate goes too high she strokes out... period.
