Miley Cyrus sat down for a cover story with Billboard to announce that her new era is finally dawning. As she prepares to drop a new single on May 11, Miley opened up about her new album, getting back to her country roots and writing music about her boyfriend Liam Hemsworth.
“They’re going to talk about me if I come out of a restaurant with Liam,” Miley explains. “So why not put the power back in my relationship and say, ‘This is how I feel?'” That’s why she wrote her new single, “Malibu,” named for the town where the couple has set up a little love nest.
But she opened up, explaining that it wasn’t always a garden of roses for the couple. Miley said that their 2013 breakup happened because change was necessary for her.
