The 10-month romantic with younger love Cody Simpson came to an end, Miley Cyrus has just reflected her past marriage with Liam Hemsworth when appearing on an episode of Barstool Sports’ Call Her Daddy podcast that was published the same day.
The 27-year-old pop star didn’t underestimate the effect of ending a 10-year relationship and said their painful split was “like a death.”
“I had a very public, very big breakup that was over a 10-year span of a relationship…” she told to the host, Alexandra Cooper.
‘It’s like a death when you lose a love that deep. It feels like a death.’
“Honestly, sometimes [death] even feels easier because [with a breakup] the person is still walking on the earth,” she added.
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth met each other and fell in love while filming the 2010 romance movie The Last Song, based on the novel of the same name by Nicholas Sparks.
One silver lining of the hurtful breakup was that the singer was able to reclaim her sense of self after transforming it for years.
“Going through a massive breakup, one thing I gained through all the loss is an idea that what I do is for me,” she explained.
The singer also went on revealing what she was looking for in the next relationship, as the moves on with Cody Simpson not so long after the divorce.

“I’ve been very experimental. I just really don’t have a type,” she said of her past partners. But as she shared, “living a sober lifestyle” is an essential factor.
“I now no longer look at any sort of AA meetings because I myself, I don’t really want to help someone on their journey of addiction, because I need to take care of my own self,” she said.
“But I do know, you don’t 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, meeting these kinds of people.” It’s like, you can really control the kind of people that are going to flow in and out of your life and you can create a filtration system. So I’ve filtered my life of what I will accept and what I will not.
