Miley Cyrus Slams Liam Hemsworth Onstage

While performing in London over the weekend, Miley Cyrus took a few minutes to explain the meaning behind her hit ‘Wrecking Ball,’ explicitly stating that she wrote it after suffering a devastating heartbreak.

“I wrote this song after somebody broke my heart, and I just wanted to say f— you,” Cyrus announced before introducing the song. (Quote via DisneyDreaming.)

“I wanted to write a No 1 hit, something that would be on the radio,” she continued. “I wanted to make sure every time he turned on the radio he would hear my song and will keep hearing it for the rest of his life.”

Of course, the person in question is Liam Hemsworth, Cyrus’ ex-fiance. The two announced the end of their engagement in September 2013, just weeks after ‘Wrecking Ball’ was released as Cyrus’ first single from her ‘Bangerz’ album.

But interestingly enough, the tune was reportedly penned by Dr. Luke, Sacha Skarbek, Stephan Moccio, MoZella and Cirkut, and rumor has it that the song was originally slated to be a Beyonce track.

In addition to her dig at Hemsworth, Cyrus made headlines for other speeches she made during her appearance at London’s G-A-Y nightclub. The singer came under fire for making a date rape joke. Bringing a friend up onstage for his birthday, Cyrus said (via TMZ):

“Everyone’s gay, all it takes is one cocktail. And if that doesn’t work, sprinkle something in their drink. That’s what I always do.”

Though the comment elicited cheers from the audience, it raised eyebrows across the Internet, with many criticizing the singer for the off-color joke.
