Did Miley Cyrus Just Insinuate That She Hooked Up With Her Back-Up Dancers After Jingle Ball 2013?

Singer-songwriter Miley Cyrus is simply having a wonderful Christmastime. In fact, she’s taken to recounting some of her past holiday seasons on social media. Here’s why one video (and the accompanying caption) has us curious just how much she enjoyed Christmas that year.

Miley Cyrus has been open about her sexuality over the years

Cyrus has been in the public eye for a long time, growing up from a Disney Channel star to a woman in showbiz right in front of us. Though she was in a relationship with Liam Hemsworth for most of her young adult life, she has revealed that she was unsure about her sexuality and gender identity dating back many years, identifying as pansexual at one time.

When she and Hemsworth got married, she opened up about gender roles and sexual attraction even more. “I think it’s very confusing to people that I’m married,” Cyrus said in a July 2019 interview with Elle. “I’m in a hetero relationship, but I still am very sexually attracted to women,” she clarified.

She recently began to share videos from Christmas seasons past

Switching topics, Cyrus has been embracing the holiday season more than ever before. Though she and Hemsworth tied the knot around this time last year, she appears to be more career-focused than ever before in Dec. 2019. As she was on vocal rest until very recently, perhaps she’s had a lot of time to reflect.

Cyrus has been sharing videos and images from Christmases past. Last year, she was on Saturday Night Live around this time. In 2015, she was in A Very Murray Christmas, a Netflix special starring Bill Murray and featuring plenty of other celebs. Clearly, she has a lot to draw from.

What does Cyrus’ caption on this video imply?

Among those videos from past holiday performances, Cyrus shared one from Jingle Ball 2013. She did numerous shows that season, which was shortly after the release of her album, Bangerz. You know, the one featuring songs like “Wrecking Ball,” which was the phase in which she wore very little and did a lot of grinding.

In the video above, this persona is on full display. She walks across the stage and smacks each of her three back-up dancers (dressed as reindeer) playfully on their backsides. In her caption, she wrote, “Hope everyone on the Jingle Ball tour this year is having as much fun as me and the 3 reindeer did after the show,” seemingly implying that they did a lot more than just dance together.

She’s been embracing her past throughout her relationship with Cody Simpson

While Cyrus sharing this kind of message a year or so ago may have been very strange, she appears to be embracing everything having to do with her past. This began earlier this year, with the promotion of her latest EP, She Is Coming. And it’s continued through the dissolution of her marriage to Hemsworth.

These days, Cyrus is spending a lot of time with Australian musician Cody Simpson, who seems to fit in perfectly with her family. She seems to be much more comfortable just being herself in his relationship. Merry Christmas indeed!
