Miley Cyrus released the ultimate breakup anthem on January 12, 2023. Even though the song is a musical masterpiece, we find it inexplicable that the queen chose to release it on Liam Hemsworth‘s birthday. Along with the song, the 30-year-old Wrecking Ball singer also released the music video. Miley enters the frame of the video wearing the dazzlingly flawless gold outfit she first debuted in the previews. The beat abruptly stops, and she begins to sing, “I can buy myself flowers / Write my name in the sand, Yeah, some things you don’t understand / But I can take myself dancing, yeah / I can hold my own hand / Yeah, I can love me better than you can.”
Along with her gold dress, Miley also rocks a lovely black lace lingerie/swimsuit when she strips down, which undoubtedly accentuates her toned physique. The next outfit she rocks is a black power suit that she wore without a shirt, giving it a daring twist. Miley is seen dancing her heart out as the harrowing yet empowering breakup ballad comes to a conclusion.
While Miley’s appearance in the video is something to lust after, we also can’t ignore how empowering and devastating the lyrics are at the same time. Fans have been speculating that Miley Cyrus’s song Flowers, which was released on Liam’s birthday, is about their breakup, despite the fact that there has been no official confirmation. It was rumoured that the song was about Miley and Liam even before it was released. However, the song’s lyrics provide unmistakable proof that it is about their historic divorce.
The first piece of proof is Miley’s phrase, “Built a home and watched it burn,” in which she alludes to the Woolsey fires in November 2018 that destroyed the Malibu home she lived with Liam. The chorus of the song was influenced by Bruno Mars’ “When I Was Your Man,” the song that Liam once dedicated to Miley, which is another indication that this song is about Liam. Beach-related evidence, such as the lyric “Write my name in the sand,” makes fans speculate if the song is about the ex-couple.
