While no one has an inside look into their relationship, fans noted that Cyrus seems "liberated" now in her relationship, with another Twitter user chiming in that they admired her genuine happiness.
i don't know them so i can't judge their relationships, but it seems like now miley cyrus is liberated and able to truly be herself. sometimes when you love someone deeply, you try to change yourself and just end up restricting your own freedom, happiness and self expression.— ELIJAH MCCLAIN WAS MURDERED (@tiredsaturngirl) July 7, 2020
Exactlyyyy I've always admired how genuine she is and I'm glad she looks happier now— Anj (@Engy_ibrahiim) July 7, 2020
Others took the opportunity to diss the Hannah Montana star's ex, saying she was "too vibrant" for the more reserved Hemsworth and needed someone on "her level" of free spirit.
She was always too vibrant for his wallpapery ass— Grace 🗽 (@graceamoseley) July 6, 2020
He's just never been a good match for her. He was always trying to box her in and make her more conservative. But that's not Miley. She's a truly free spirit and she needs someone on her level.— Grace 🗽 (@graceamoseley) July 6, 2020
Cyrus has been open recently about how her sobriety has affected her well-being, announcing she was six months sober in June on Variety's iHeart podcast The Big Ticket. Cyrus said that at the beginning, her sobriety stemmed from having vocal surgery, but she became inspired to stick with it because of her parents' past.
"My mom was adopted, and I inherited some of the feelings she had, the abandonment feelings and wanting to prove that you’re wanted and valuable. My dad’s parents divorced when he was 3, so my dad raised himself," Cyrus shared. "I did a lot of family history, which has a lot of addiction and mental health challenges. So just going through that and asking, 'Why am I the way that I am?' By understanding the past, we understand the present and the future much more clearly. I think therapy is great."prevnext
That doesn't mean being sober has been easy. "It’s really hard because especially being young, there’s that stigma of 'you’re no fun.' It’s like, 'honey, you can call me a lot of things, but I know that I’m fun,'" she continued. The musician added that the thing she loves most about being sober "is waking up 100 percent, 100 percent of the time," saying she no longer wanted to wake up feeling "groggy" and has been loving " feeling ready." Whatever she's doing, Cyrus seems like she's in a great place!prev
