Miley Cyrus, the multi-talented artist known for her meteoric rise to fame and chart-topping hits, recently opened up about a pivotal moment in her life: the exact moment when she realized her marriage to actor Liam Hemsworth was over.
As part of her engaging TikTok series to promote her latest song, ‘Used to Be Young,’ Miley took her fans on a journey through her past and present relationships, shedding light on her personal life like never before.
Before Miley became synonymous with her infamous “wrecking ball” phase, she first captivated audiences as the beloved Hannah Montana on the Disney series from 2006 to 2011. During that transformative period, she crossed paths with Liam Hemsworth in 2009 on the set of the film ‘The Last Song,’ marking the inception of their story.
Their connection deepened, and a year later, the world caught a glimpse of their budding romance when they were inadvertently photographed sharing a romantic kiss at an airport. Despite the rollercoaster nature of their relationship, the couple’s bond remained unbroken, culminating in a momentous proposal by Liam in 2012. Miley shared her joy at the time, stating, “I’m so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam.”
However, ‘Liley’ fans would later face heartbreak as the couple’s love story took an unexpected turn, leading to their separation and eventual divorce in 2020. Yet, as Miley’s recent revelations attest, the seeds of doubt were sown long before the official dissolution of their marriage.
Miley disclosed a poignant turning point during her performance at Glastonbury in 2019. She recalled, “The day of the [Glastonbury] show was the day I had decided it was no longer going to work in my life to be in that relationship.” This revelation shed light on the inner turmoil she was experiencing, where the demands of her career, her public persona, and her artistic commitments took precedence over her personal life.
In another segment of her TikTok series, Miley reminisced about the initial chemistry between her and Liam when they first met on the set of ‘The Last Song.’ She described it as a unique and powerful connection, saying, “I think one of the elements that made that movie feel so special was it was watching two very young people fall in love with each other, which was happening in real time and real life. So, the chemistry was undeniable, and that was the beginning of a long, 10-year relationship.”
Months after the divorce was finalized, Miley spoke candidly about her breakup on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast. She expressed her acceptance of the fact that love can change over time but also lamented the negative narrative that sometimes surrounds such situations. She said, “What really sucked about it wasn’t the fact that me and someone that I loved realized that we don’t love each other the way that we used to anymore. That’s OK. I can accept that. I can’t accept the villainizing and just all those stories.”
Miley’s latest single, ‘Used To Be Young,’ provides an intimate glimpse into her personal journey, reflecting on moments of change and growth. Through her TikTok series and music, Miley Cyrus continues to connect with her audience by sharing her authentic experiences and emotions, reminding us all that love, loss, and self-discovery are universal aspects of the human experience.
