During the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Cyrus has mostly been single. She shared with fans during a recent performance at the BottleRock Napa Valley festival that this period has allowed her to reflect on life.

“I had a theory I would die if I didn’t have a partner. If I didn’t have someone to kiss me every single night,” she said, according to the Daily Mail. “But then this was my purpose, but this was taken from me during COVID, so then I found a new purpose and that’s music is the glue over the last two years and it was what was keeping us strong at the time.”

She added, “I’m just so fortunate to be a musician.”

Cyrus has led a rather exciting life, but she is looking for someone who is “boring” as she embarks on her next journey.

“I need boring,” Cyrus shared on the Call Her Daddy podcast in August 2020. “I definitely, definitely need a calming—I need an anchor, I need a weight.”

Cyrus also added that she wants someone who knows how to “take care of themselves.” She explained, “I think the way someone treats himself is a reflection of the way that they’ll treat you. I’m super into clean eating; I’m into people taking care of themselves.”

Because of this, Cyrus will be looking for love in places where her ideal partner is likely to be.

“If clean eating and self-maintenance is going to be important, I know to look in communities where those people are going to gather,” Cyrus said. “As someone that’s living a sober lifestyle‚ don’t go to the club looking for your next partner, you know? So put yourself in places where you’ll be successful so you don’t get stuck on, ‘I’m just always wasting my time with all these people.’”
