Miley Cyrus’ Comments After Her Breakup with Nick Jonas May Have Forecasted Her Future
The news of Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth splitting up is all over the media. Since the news broke, Cyrus has been documenting her time in Italy on Instagram with philosophical captions like, “Life’s a climb… but the view is great,” and “Don’t fight evolution, because you will never win.”
Her free-spiritedness is nothing new for the pop star. Cyrus has had other relationships, most notably with Nick Jonas during their Disney days. Cyrus had previously commented on their time together, and break up, possibly leaving some clues as to how she planned to live her life.
Hemsworth and Cyrus married in December after an on-again, off-again relationship that spanned ten years. According to People, a rep for the couple issued a statement on their split, saying, ““Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time. Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers. They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy.”
While Cyrus continues to post frequently to social media, Hemsworth just recently broke his silence on separating from his wife. “Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated and I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward,” he posted on Instagram. “This is a private matter and I have not made, nor will I be making, any comments to any journalists or media outlets. Any reported quotes attributed to me are false. Peace and Love.”
Flashback to Disney days
According to Popsugar, Cyrus and Jonas dated from 2006 to late 2007. Apparently, sparks flew as soon as they met. “That changed girls for Nick forever. He met Miley, I think that kid’s head exploded,” Nick’s brother Kevin said on their documentary Chasing Happiness.
Clearly, Cyrus was also smitten. “We became boyfriend and girlfriend the day we met,” Cyrus said, according to People. “He was on a quest to meet me, and he was like, ‘I think you’re beautiful and I really like you.’ And I was like, ‘Oh, my gosh, I like you so much.’”
At the time, the young couple tried to keep their relationship a secret, claiming they were just friends. The pressure of having to remain under the radar on their romance took a toll. “Nick and I loved each other. We still do, but we were in love with each other,” Cyrus told People in 2008. ”For two years he was basically my 24/7. But it was really hard to keep it from people. We were arguing a lot, and it really wasn’t fun.”
‘I like being the girl nobody can have’
Cyrus openly described her sadness on her breakup with Jonas. “At first I bawled for a month straight. I was so sad. I just went into this weird funk,” she said, as reported by People. “And I dyed my hair black. When we were dating, Nick wanted me to get highlights – and so I did that, and I got myself looking great. And then, on the day we broke up, I was like, I want to make my hair black now – I don’t want to look pretty; I want to look hard-core. I was rebelling against everything Nick wanted me to be. And then I was like, I’ve got to be by myself for now, and just figure out who I really am.”
Being herself is something Cyrus is adamant about, from her songs of independence to her raw honestly about her life and choices, she purposefully follows her own path. Her comments in 2008 may have revealed how she plans to live her life and handle her relationships, where she alluded to prefer being unattainable. “Since [the breakup], I’ve realized that I’ve met so many great guys, but I like being the girl nobody can have,” she said, according to People. “No one can touch me, no one’s mine. I’m myself. I think it’s sexy to do your own thing.”
Though those words were said a decade ago, they may have been setting the stage for how the pop star continues to navigate through her personal life.
