Miley Cyrus hasn’t said much about her recent breakup with actor Liam Hemsworth, but she's now dropping hints she was thinking about ending the relationship as early as February of this year.
Cyrus appears on the cover of the November issue of Fashion magazine and opens up about how "Drive," a breakup anthem on her latest album, alludes to her failed relationship with Hemsworth.
"I wrote it while I was working on Valentine's Day," Cyrus tells the magazine. "Emotionally it was such a hard time. It is about needing to leave someone but not really wanting to completely cut yourself off from the relationship. It's a time when you want to leave but you can't. It's also about moving on."
Cyrus has moved on, she says -- at least in her career: “I feel like I’m in a different lane now. When it comes to critics, I have my blinders on and I don’t really feel like I have to compete with other pop artists.”
This isn't the first time an artist has used heartbreak as an inspiration for their music -- in fact, Taylor Swift seems to have made a career of it. But which of those breakup songs still stand the test of time, and will "Drive" join the list?
