Twerking, drugs, and raunchy behavior, all following a heartbreaking break up; this seems to be the latest definition of Miley Cyrus. After officially calling off their engagement in September, Cyrus has been on a downward spiral. Despite her comments of being better off without ex fiancé, Liam Hemsworth, Miley seems to be more lost than ever.
According to sources close to both the stars, Cyrus’ stresses began while still engaged to Hemsworth, due to a broken relationship. Cyrus often claims that much of their breakup is due to the fact that she got engaged at the young age of 19. “I don’t think I realized what 19 truly is, and I got engaged at 19, and I definitely wouldn’t change being engaged.” Cyrus claims. She also claims that she had wanted to leave Hemsworth long before the official announcement of the canceled engagement, but chose to stay for the fear of being alone. “I liked them together! They seemed so perfect for each other when they filmed The Last Song,” comments Allison Summers, a junior. Cyrus’ rebel behavior began to rear its ugly head before the split, most likely due to the unhappiness she felt, first appearing with her shocking haircut that raised divisive opinions among the masses.
The world finally got to see just how bad Cyrus had spiraled out of control on August 25th with her incredibly shocking and raunchy VMA performance that was talked about for months afterward. Social media exploded with criticisms of the former Disney channel star turned rebel. “The performance was interesting to say the least, I think she did it for publicity more than anything. She wanted people to talk about her,” adds sophomore, Lauren Walker. Whether for publicity or not, Cyrus was making a very loud statement- she didn’t care what anyone thought of her from that point on.
Soon after their split, each were seen with numerous rumored lovers. Hemsworth was rumored to be dating twenty-three year old Eliza Gonzales after calling things off with actress, January Jones. Cyrus was rumored to be romantically involved with stars ranging from Mike Will Made It to Kellan Lutz, even including Justin Bieber for a short time. In the midst of this juicy lover gossip, rumors that the Hunger Games beau and the ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer were getting back together surfaced. According to sources close to Cyrus, it was Hemsworth who initiated the contact between them, saying he missed her. Although these rumors were never proven, they were seen together on a number of occasions.
According to recent interviews, both Hemswoth and Cyrus deny getting back together but each say they are better off and more grounded then they have been in years.
“I hope they end up getting back together after they take a break for a while, I honestly think they are the cutest thing!” Sophomore Bailee Jones raves.
If rekindled love is in the future for Hemsworth and Cyrus, will the entertainment world finally be relieved of all Cyrus’ crazed behavior, or will the saga continue?
