The former child star opens up about split rumours with boyfriend Liam Hemsworth, what sparked her image overhaul and getting back into the studio in her raciest shoot ever.
Miley Cyrus shed her good girl image a long time ago, but she shows no sign of going back to her Disney roots. The 20-year-old's love life has been fuelling the rumour mill for several months, since she and her former fiance Liam Hemsworth called off their engagement earlier this year, however the singer insists that they are still very much together.
"Every week it’s like, 'Are they broken up? Because we don’t see a photo of them'," she told the latest issue of V Magazine, in which she features in three different covers. "I don’t have time to go to Starbucks with my boyfriend every morning. I wish I did, but I don’t.
"I’m not home with my boyfriend all the time. We work," she added.
"I’d rather chill at my house and be there for the time I actually get to spend with him. And then I’m at the studio all day. He gets up to work out at six and I come home at five from the studio."
"I put this record before everything, and I’ve never done that with anything. I’ve put too much into this record to put anything else in front of it."
Miley is preparing for the release of her latest album, where she collaborated with legendary producer and musician Pharrell Williams.
"Everyone can like what we’re doing," she explained of the album. "That’s when I feel like my record is so different. It’s not what people expect where it’s me giving my middle finger and saying, “F*** you. I didn’t make a record for the people that love me.”
"I made a record for the people that love me, but then I made a record for the people that I want to start to understand me.’
"I got excited because on this record I can say whatever I want,’ she added. "And then I got more comfortable with that and the record got better and better."
