Miley Cyrus' 2024 Grammys Win Proves Ditching Liam Hemsworth Was A Smart Move

The 2024 Grammy Awards were a very special occasion for Miley Cyrus. She won her first-ever Grammy Award. For a lot of us, that's hard to believe considering how long this star has been in the public eye. Her first album, "Meet Miley Cyrus," came out in 2007, when she was just 14 years old. Now, at 31, the superstar is a Grammy winner. It seems that everything it took to get here was worth it, and her speech proves it. 

Cyrus won the Best Pop Solo Performance award for her song "Flowers." Since the song first came out in January 2023, it's been one of the songs fans think Cyrus wrote about her ex-husband, Liam Hemsworth. "Flowers" is an empowering breakup anthem, and it seems to have many references to her on-again-off-again romance with Hemsworth. When Cyrus took the stage on Grammy's night, she confirmed the theories and expressed her pride. While singing, Cyrus modified the lyrics, saying, "I didn't wanna leave you, but I had to. I didn't wanna fight, but we did. Started to cry — then remembered, I just won my first Grammy!" The crowd went wild, and it's clear that fans love the version of Cyrus that's winning awards and, as the song says, "buying herself flowers."

Cyrus' Grammy win further proves her song's message

Writing a scathing breakup song about an ex who wronged you and performing it on the Grammys stage after it took home an award is the kind of revenge that most of us can only dream of. Yet, Miley Cyrus was able to do it in front of the world, and it's clear that the meaning wasn't lost on her. Many fans believe that among her many outfit changes throughout the night, Cyrus nailed the revenge dress. And, she certainly nailed the revenge performance, too. 

Cyrus met Liam Hemsworth in 2008, and the pair dated on and off until they got married in 2018, only to divorce a year later. The relationship was rife with ups and downs and struggles. But, in the end, it was their final breakup that inspired Cyrus to write her award-winning song, "Flowers." The song's lyrics are all about getting over a breakup and learning to love yourself and be there for yourself even more than a partner could. She ends the song saying, "I can love me better than you can," and Cyrus has done just that. And, it's evident by her win that fans love Cyrus, too.
