Miley Cyrus sent out an extended message of personal truth Thursday, pushing back against claims from those pathetic enough to fabricate antiquated relationship-ending rumors regarding her split from Liam Hemsworth.
In the first in a series of powerfully vulnerable tweets, Cyrus explained that she's accepted that the nature of her life is such that being "completely open and transparent" with both her fans and the general public is a requirement. What she won't abide, however, is being the subject of those aforementioned fabrications.
"I have nothing to hide," she said, later stating that "it is no secret" she placed a greater emphasis on the party life during a different era.
I can accept that the life I’ve chosen means I must live completely open and transparent with my fans who I love, and the public, 100% of the time. What I cannot accept is being told I’m lying to cover up a crime I haven’t committed. I have nothing to hide.— Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) August 22, 2019
That era, she noted, ultimately produced what she considers her biggest song to date.
It is no secret that I was into partying in my teens and early 20’s. I have not only smoked, but advocated for weed, I’ve experimented with drugs, my biggest song to date is about dancing on molly and snorting lines in the bathroom.— Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) August 22, 2019
From there, Cyrus spoke of cheating in relationships when she was younger and recalled losing a sponsorship deal as a teenager simply for "ripping a bong." Tying all this back to her split from Hemsworth, Cyrus said their reconciliation was approached with full commitment, meaning "there are no secrets to uncover" regarding the eventual split.

But the truth is, once Liam & I reconciled,I meant it, & I was committed. There are NO secrets to uncover here. I’ve learned from every experience in my life. I’m not perfect, I don’t want to be, it’s boring. I’ve grown up in front of you, but the bottom line is, I HAVE GROWN UP.— Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) August 22, 2019
"I can admit to a lot of things but I refuse to admit that my marriage ended because of cheating," she said.
BUT at this point I had to make a healthy decision for myself to leave a previous life behind. I am the healthiest and happiest I have been in a long time. You can say I am a twerking, pot smoking , foul mouthed hillbilly but I am not a liar.— Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) August 22, 2019
I am proud to say, I am simply in a different place from where i was when I was a younger.— Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) August 22, 2019
Earlier this month, Cyrus seemingly addressed this next chapter ahead in her surprise new song "Slide Away."
