Miley Cyrus is in the middle of a VERY public breakup -- but, according to her, she's doing better than ever.
In an interview airing today on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," the 20-year-old star opens up about her split from former fiance Liam Hemsworth (who has already been seen making out with a new girl).
"I keep saying I’m the happiest I’ve ever been and that’s not even a dig," she tells the talk show host during the revealing sit-down. "That’s just me because I really am genuinely happy finally with myself which I think sometimes it takes you separating yourself from someone else to really be happy with who you are."
Check out the video above to see if she's seen Liam lately and what she thinks of all the media attention on their split.
Cyrus also addresses, once again, her now-infamous VMA performance with Robin Thicke.
In light of him throwing her under the bus, saying he was just the "twerkee," Miley defends herself -- saying "He was in rehearsal as much as I was and loving it people… and loving it."
We don't doubt it.
