Miley Cyrus drops a new breakup anthem.

On Thursday, January 12, 2023, Miley Cyrus dropped the ultimate breakup anthem. While the song is a musical masterpiece what we can’t get over is the fact that the queen decided to release it on her ex-husband Liam Hemsworth‘s birthday. The 30-year-old Wrecking Ball star also released the music video along with the track. 

 

Miley Cyrus’s Flowers

The video starts with Miley walking toward the camera in a jaw-droppingly perfect gold look which was previously revealed in the promos. In just a matter of seconds, the beat drops and she sings, "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.” It is safe to say that we are already hooked on the song. 

 

Miley Cyrus’s looks in the official video 

Along with her gold outfit, another stunning look that Miley strips down to is her black lacy lingerie/swimsuit that certainly shows off her toned body. The next look she pulls off is a black power suit which she styled with a bold twist by skipping on the shirt. As the painful yet empowering breakup anthem comes to an end, Miley is seen dancing her heart out. 

 

Are the lyrics of the Miley Cyrus song a dedication to Liam Hemsworth?

While Miley’s looks in the video are worth obsessing over, we cannot overlook the fact that the lyrics are heartbreaking yet empowering at the same time. Although there is no official confirmation, fans have been insinuating the lyrics of Miley Cyrus’s Flowers are all about Liam and Miley’s breakup and the fact that the song is dropped on his birthday is another piece of evidence. 

Even before the release of the song, it was rumored that the song was about Miley and Liam. However, the lyrics are certainly prime evidence that the song is definitely about their infamous divorce. The very first evidence is the line “Built a home and watched it burn” where Miley is referring to her Malibu house that she shared with Liam which burnt down in November 2018 due to the Woolsey fires. Another piece of evidence that proves this song is about Liam is the fact that the chorus of the song is inspired by Bruno Mars's “When I Was Your Man” - The song that once Liam dedicated to Miley. Also the line “Write my name in the sand” is beach-related evidence that makes fans wonder if the song is about the former couple.
