Performing at the MTV VMAs, Miley cyrus debuts new tattoo that’s about her split with Liam Hemsworth.
The 26-year-old singer revealed the new ink while singing “Slide Away” publicly for the first time at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards. The tattoo quotes a heartfelt message ” My head was feeling scared, but my heart was feeling free”.
This is her first major appearance following her split from husband Liam Hemsworth. Just after eight months of tying the knot. Less than two weeks after the breakup, Miley released “Slide Away,” a song that’s assumed to be about Liam. “Move on we’re not 17 / I’m not who I used to be,” Miley sang at the VMAs.
Miley’s rumored girlfriend, Kaitlynn Carter, was also among the crowd.
The split led some to accuse Miley of cheating on her husband, which she insists is not true. “I can admit to a lot of things, but I refuse to admit that my marriage ended because of cheating, Liam and I have been together for a decade. I’ve said it before & it remains true, I love Liam and always will. BUT at this point, I had to make a healthy decision for myself to leave a previous life behind. I am the healthiest and happiest I have been in a long time.”
