Miley Cyrus is opening up on her breakup with Liam Hemsworth in 2012.
Four years after calling off their engagement, Miley and Liam rekindled their romance. Of their long break, she told SiriusXM’s Hits 1 radio show, "I think, know that everything is happening for the right reason. And I knew that when we weren’t together the first time — I didn’t know if that was the end of it, or knew if we were going to get back together again, but knew that wherever I was going I was on the right path.”
Cyrus also believes that their split made them stronger as a couple. She emphasized, "People that break up and get back together — I think that’s awesome because you know it’s true, but also you get time to be yourself, you get time to grow up.”
"If you’re growing up attached to another person, you never really get solid as your own being. So I’m really solid and he gets to be really solid and together, we get to be two really grounded people — it’s not a half and a half making a whole,” the 24-year-old went on.
Over the weekend, Miley took the stage at 102.7 KIIS FM's Wango Tango to perform her new single “Malibu” for the first time. The song is inspired by her romance with Liam. Along with pouring her heart out onstage, she also wore a gold earring with Liam’s name on it during her set, which included “Party in the U.S.A." and “We Can’t Stop."
