Miley Cyrus breaks silence over Liam Hemsworth split
Miley Cyrus has opened up for the first time about the demise of her relationship since splitting from fiancé Liam Hemsworth, revealing she’s ready to start a new chapter in her life.
The ‘We Can’t Stop’ singer appeared on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ last week reaffirming that she couldn’t be happier since her breakup with ‘The Hunger Games’ star.
To kick off the conversation, Ellen brought up the fact that she’d thrown Miley an engagement party when she’d appeared on the show back in November, with Miley asking the host: “Do you want your money back?”
Speaking about whether it was awkward for the 20-year-old to have her breakup out there for all to see (and scrutinise) Miley insisted: “It’s not really that awkward because I’m living it.
“I think people spend more time actually thinking about it than I really do. I just believe when a chapter is done you have to close it and start a new one. That’s kind of where I am right now.”
She added: “I’ve felt like I have so much to be thankful for at this time that my energy hasn’t really been focused on that.”
But the ‘Wrecking Ball’ star also explained that she’s “impressed” that people have been focusing more on her music than her personal life.
“That’s the only thing I worried about – I didn’t want it to make me sacrifice what I’ve been working for, for just the attention to be on that.”
Miley also insisted that there is an overlap between her music and her relationship, with her new album ‘Bangerz’ actually charting the story of her romance with the Aussie actor.
“The whole album is a story of that and I think it says that with starting with ‘Adore You’ and ending with ‘Someone Else.’ I feel like you can really find like this arc of, like, growth.”
The former Disney star has spoken out a lot lately about how happy she is, but insists she’s not saying it to have a go at her ex-fiancé.
“I keep saying I’m the happiest I’ve ever been and that’s not even a dig, that’s just me because I really am happy finally with myself,” she admitted.
“I think sometimes it takes you separating yourself from someone else to really be happy with who you are.”
