Miley Cyrus’ Special Moment With Liam Hemsworth, And Why Rival Demi Lovato Is Proud Of Her

Miley Cyrus is spreading nothing but love lately.

Fresh off getting sober for the first time in years, the “Malibu” hitmaker has unwittingly ended her long-running feud with Demi Lovato and sent her love and condolences to Ariana Grande and victims of the Manchester Monday explosion that killed at least 22 people.

Besides, Miley Cyrus can’t seem to get enough of her fiancé Liam Hemsworth after reuniting with the Independence Day: Resurgence actor last year following their 2013 split.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth shared a special moment backstage at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, where the singer performed her new hit single “Malibu” at the Billboard Music Awards, according to E! News.

In what turned out to be a big family affair, Miley Cyrus took the stage to perform “Malibu” for the first time live. Her dad Billy Ray Cyrus, who is also the legendary country singer that inspired Miley to embrace her country roots for the new single, and sibling Noah Cyrus introduced Miley at the BBMAs.

With Liam Hemsworth waiting for Miley Cyrus backstage, Miley Cyrus decided to take her entire family with her for the big event. Miley’s mom Tish Cyrus and big sister Brandi Cyrus were sitting in the audience at the T-Mobile Arena.

While it’s unclear why Liam Hemsworth refused to cheer Miley Cyrus in the audience alongside the rest of his fiancé’s family, the Hunger Games actor and Miley have always been a notoriously private couple.

In fact, neither Liam Hemsworth nor Miley Cyrus walked the red carpet ahead of the awards show. Liam apparently kept avoiding the public eye that night, as even after Miley’s performance he didn’t trade his backstage spot for a seat in the audience.

Miley Cyrus, meanwhile, changed into a white ruffled look after her performance of “Malibu” – the song she wrote for her fiancé Liam Hemsworth – and joined the rest of the family in the audience.

Miley Cyrus got visibly choked up while singing the last verse of “Malibu” during the BBMAs, while Liam Hemsworth certainly also got emotional during the song that Miley wrote for him.

Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato have never been particularly close – in fact, there have been rumors of a feud between the two – but the latter has just seemingly ended her alleged feud with the “Wrecking Ball” singer.

Miley Cyrus, who has a very publicized and controversial history with weed and alcohol, revealed that she is sober for the first time in years after quitting weed and alcohol earlier this month.

And Demi Lovato apparently cannot be prouder of Miley Cyrus, who once even built a five-foot bong for her personal use and even smoked a joint onstage at the MTV EMAs, for getting sober.

Demi Lovato is no stranger to dealing with substance abuse struggles, as the “Cool For the Summer” singer herself recently celebrated her five-year sobriety milestone.

Despite the rumored long-running feud between Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato, the former praised the “Malibu” singer for getting sober. Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, Demi Lovato said she is “really proud” of Liam Hemsworth’s fiancée and hinted that their long-running feud with Miley Cyrus is over.

“I think that it helps people to know that there are people in the spotlight that have challenges, that are faced with very stressful lives.”

Praising Miley Cyrus for getting candid in her Billboard interview earlier this month about getting sober for the first time in years, Demi Lovato says it “helps to know” that “recovery is possible.”
