In a candid interview with Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show, the singer revealed she still has feelings for the Aussie actor, despite going their separate ways in August 2019 after just eight months of marriage.
"Our house burned down", she said. We had been like, engaged-I don't know if we really ever thought we were actually going to get married, but when we lost our house in Malibu-which if you listen to my voice pre-and post-fire, they're very different so that trauma really affected my voice.
"When I come home, I want to be anchored by someone", she said.
Speaking in an interview with an American radio station on Wednesday (2nd December) while promoting her new album, "Plastic Hearts", which is now sitting at Number 4 in the United Kingdom charts, Miley spoke about why the two called it a day on their long-term relationship. Miley also admitted, "I just clung to what I had left of that house, which was me and him".
The couple in question shared a video of themselves dancing around, writing: "if Miley Cyrus comments [we] will get married" - I think we can safely assume the pair were not expecting to get a response from the pop star. They then split in August 2019, and their divorce was finalized in early 2020.
"So today, it came out that me and my boyfriend have broken up".
Throughout Plastic Hearts there are blatant references to Miley Cyrus' venture into singledom, with her central song "Midnight Sky" repeating "I don't belong to anyone". "I always became friends with my friends" grandmas so I could get the goods from the artists I love. "I don't get off on drama or fighting".
The singer previously told how she stopped drinking alcohol after undergoing vocal cord surgery late a year ago.
The 28-year-old singer is on the new episode of The Howard Stern Show and she was asked about some specific lyrics in the song. "So if that's an alcoholic - if we're not measuring it by how much we drink but how we perform as a human being - then I would say alcohol is a problem for me because I'm not at my best".
Taking to Instagram hours after news of their break-up emerged, Cyrus wrote: "A year ago, nearly to this exact date, the media tried to tell my story for me, and control my narrative, and I'm just not accepting that", she said in an Instagram Live.
