Miley Cyrus Takes Herself Dancing in an LBD to Celebrate "Flowers" Win
Miley Cyrus is on fire.
The pop star's latest single, "Flowers," is number one on the music charts around the world for the second week in a row—topping the lists in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada, to name a few.
She proudly celebrated her achievement yesterday on Instagram.
"Celebrating 'Flowers' being #1 around the world again this week! I love that this record is connecting in such a positive way & it's a pleasure to continue creating music for you. These milestones are only made possible by the listeners & my incredible fans. Endlessly thankful," she wrote alongside two photos of herself dancing in a sleek black minidress.
In the sultry snaps, Cyrus shows off her moves while looking away from the camera, pouting her lips. Her long-sleeved LBD features a plunging neckline held together by a thin belt-like strap at the chest, and Cyrus wears her hair up in a messy bun with loose strands framing her face. Her makeup is gold and shimmery—her go-to hue and look for her "Flowers" era.
The track, fans have speculated, is Cyrus's empowering response to Bruno Mars's "When I Was Your Man." Not only is it set to the same beat, but the lyrics seems to be alternate responses to Mars's own statements.
Mars sings, "That I should have bought you flowers / And held your hand / Should have gave you all my hours / When I had the chance / Take you to every party 'cause all you wanted to do was dance / Now my baby's dancing / But she's dancing with another man."
Cyrus sings, "I didn't wanna leave you / I didn't wanna lie / Started to cry but then remembered I / I can buy myself flowers / Write my name in the sand / Talk to myself for hours / Say things you don't understand / I can take myself dancing / And I can hold my own hand / Yeah, I can love me better than you can."
Cyrus's ex-husband, Liam Hemsworth, allegedly dedicated the Mars song to her when they were together. The two met in 2009 on the set of The Last Song and embarked on a decade-long on-and-off relationship. They married in an intimate ceremony in December 2018 and split less than a year later, in August 2019.
