This is the week of Miley Cyrus. Get over it. She's breaking records, taking names, and owning it- all by being who she is. Ellen DeGeneres has a way of getting people to show their softer sides. When Miley appeared on her show, she gave us the insight to Bangerz, and how it tells a story. She didn't realize how personal the album was until she listened to it in its' entirety. "I think it says that with starting with ‘Adore You' and ending with ‘Someone Else,'" she said. "I feel like you can really find like this arch of, like, growth," says the soon to be 21 year old Cyrus. She continued, "I think sometimes it takes you separating yourself from someone else to really be happy with who you are." Miley does seem happier these days, and it's not from popping "molly."
Miley also sang her smash hit "Wrecking Ball" with a few surprises added to the performance. Cyrus told Ellen that she's "obsessed with being alone"- that is for the five minutes a day she gets to be alone. Miley's time on Ellen is the first interview where she gets candid and talks about her breakup with Liam Hemsworth in any depth, so the newsworthiness explains itself.
Miley alludes to depression during a couple tracks on her album, and it's a curious thought as to whether Liam suffered from the mental illness, possibly causing a strain on their relationship.Take the lyrics from "Maybe You're Right":
Feel the pages now/This chapters done /Moving on up and forward onto all that we'll become / If you ever get to the place where the sun is shining everyday/Then I'll be on your mind
While only Miley and Liam Hemsworth really know what happened between the two of them, the world definitely gained some awesome tunes from Cyrus' life experiences.
Today, Disney announced that they are disassociating Miley's name with Hannah Montana. This means if you want a Hannah Montana song or episode on iTunes, you will no longer be able to find it by typing in "Miley Cyrus." It's certain that Miley has the musical side of things covered with or without Disney, as Bangerz is cruising to be at the top spot on the Billboard 200. Take a look at the clip of Miley on Ellen and stay tuned for Bangerz sales tallies next week!
