Ever wonder how Miley felt about her super high-profile breakup with Liam Hemsworth? You might be surprised! In her recent interview with Elle magazine, she finally opened up and explained a little bit about the emotions she felt during that time. 

She tells the magazine, "When I went through a really intense breakup — you know, I was engaged — and when I was with him or when I was on Disney, the thing that gave me the most anxiety was not knowing what to do with myself when Disney wasn’t there to carry me anymore or if I didn’t have him. Now I’m free of both of those things, and I’m fine. I lay in bed at night by myself and I’m totally okay, and that’s so much stronger than the person three years ago, who would have thought they would have died if they didn’t have a boyfriend."

We are obviously very happy to hear that she's doing well despite the heartbreak and that overall, the experience has helped to make her a stronger person. It is definitely a hard thing to end certain chapters of your life-especially when such strong feelings are involved, and we can't imagine how much harder that would be to do so in the public eye! 


By the way...did you see Miley serenade her dog the other night?
