Miley Cyrus, who recently released her new single Malibu, is happy for all the love it has been receiving.
The 24-year-old took to Twitter to post a ‘Thank You’ video and captioned it as, “#Malibu is #1 !!! Thank you for loving and listening !”
The Hannah Montana star has spoken about the inspiration behind the track, namely her fiance Liam Hemsworth, and why the two ultimately had to take a break, reports E! Online. “I needed to change so much. And changing with someone else not changing like that is too hard. Suddenly you’re like, ‘I don’t recognize you anymore.’ We had to re-fall for each other,” she said in a candid interview with Billboard.
Cyrus also shared that this upcoming album is entirely on her terms. “I know exactly where I am right now. I know what I want this record to be. And not in the sense of manipulation-wanting something from my fans or the audience, like some slimy thing-’How do I get attention?’ I never thought about that.”
She continued, “This record is a reflection of the fact that yes, I don’t give a f--k. But right now is not a time to give a f--k about people. I’m giving the world a hug and saying, ‘Hey, look. We’re good, I love you.’ And I hope you can say you love me back.”
In the video, which debuted at the same time as the song, Cyrus frolics with balloons on a beach, hangs out in wildflower-flecked fields, and chills with a dog.
