Miley Cyrus may be twerking her way to the top of the charts, but one area that she hasn't been doing so well in is her love life.
Right before releasing her highly anticipated album "Bangerz," Cyrus and fiancé Liam Hemsworth announced their split. Now Cyrus is speaking out about the breakup for the very first time.
The pop star appeared Friday on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and opened up about how she's been dealing with the aftermath.

"I just believe when a chapter is done, you have to close it and start that new one," Cyrus told DeGeneres. "That’s kind of where I am right now. I felt like I have so much to be thankful for at this time that my energy hasn’t really been focused on that."
When asked if it was an awkward time for her, Cyrus said that "it’s not really as awkward because I’m living it. So I think people spend more time actually thinking about it than I really do."
Cyrus admitted that, while breaking up in the spotlight has been difficult, she's been "impressed" at how sensitive most people have been about the topic. She said, "I don’t really look up anything so maybe they haven’t been showing respect, but from what I have seen I felt like people have really focused on my music right now when I’ve needed them and have actually been really good about that because that’s the only thing I worried about I didn’t want it to sacrifice what I’ve been working for. For just the attention to be on that."
DeGeneres teased that the last time Cyrus was on the show, the talk show host had sent her male strippers to celebrate her engagement. Cyrus quipped, "I should have kept one of those dude's numbers."
Cyrus also said that "Bangerz" is a chronicle of her relationship. "The whole album is a story of that," she said. "I think it says that with starting with 'Adore You' and ending with 'Someone Else' is I feel like you can really find like this arch of, like, growth and I didn’t even know as much of… until I really listened to it now that it’s done and I have like my physical copy and I put it in my car."
Cyrus admitted, "I think I knew more intuitively where my life was going than I actually thought I did at the time." The singer also revealed that she doesn't really speak to Hemsworth anymore, but that she's content being alone.
"I keep saying I’m the happiest I’ve ever been and that’s not even a dig," Cyrus said. "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. I’ve never been able to just be alone and I’m obsessed with being alone and like hearing my thoughts."
