Miley Cyrus said she “didn’t spend too much time crying” after her divorce from Australian actor Liam Hemsworth due to two years of “trauma and loss” that left her with strong coping techniques, The Daily Mail reported. According to the publication, the pop singer spoke about her experience during an appearance on the Scandinavian talk show Skavlan.
When asked whether she had become more emotional as she got older, Miley opened up about the two heartbreaking years that left her determined to move forward.
“If you ask dudes I’ve broken up with they’ll say less, but I think more. I would say that there’s a stigma of coldness for a woman who actually, really moves on,” she said.
The “Wrecking Ball” hitmaker explained that, along with her divorce, over the past couple of years she lost her Malibu home due to California wildfires and sadly lost her grandmother, who she was “super close with.”
According to The Daily Mail, Miley noted that she accepted the above events because there was nothing she could do to change them.
“In a way, I didn’t spend too much time crying over it and it wasn’t because I was cold or trying to avoid feeling something but it was just because I wasn’t going to change it,” she explained.
Miley told the show’s host that moving forward is her coping mechanism when the going gets tough. She then shed some more light on how she got through such difficult life events.
“I heal through movement. I heal through traveling and meeting new people. As you lose one person, another person comes into your life,” she added.
This is not the first instance in which Miley has opened up about her high-profile divorce from Liam, with whom she was in an on-off relationship for a decade. As The Inquisitr reported, back in August, Miley told the Joe Rogan Experience podcast — which can be seen here — that the split “f*cking sucked” due to the “villainizing” she endured from the media in the aftermath.
She said it was easier to accept the fact the love between herself and Liam had changed than to accept the way in which the media portrayed her in the wake of the break up. As the publication reported, Miley had a widely reported relationship with Brody Jenner’s ex Kaitlynn Carter shortly after the breakdown of her marriage. The singer previously revealed she struggled with media stories that implied she cheated on Liam with Kaitlynn.
“It’s not, one day you were happy on the carpet and the next day you were making out with your friend in Italy, what the f*ck? There’s a lot of time in between that you didn’t see,” she told Joe during the podcast appearance.
