The “Party In The USA” star’s love life has been playing out in the tabloids as an emotional roller coaster. The actress-singer is engaged to “The Hunger Games” star Liam Hemsworth, but it seems like every other day rumors are swirling about whether the couple is on again or off again.
But the 20-year-old Cyrus told the magazine it felt natural when the Australian actor proposed to her a year ago.
“We have a house together and dogs. It just seems right to be wearing this ring and to be committed,” she said in the magazine interview quoted by Us Weekly. “But we keep our relationship low-key and don’t talk about it any more.”
The former “Hannah Montana” star used to be very vocal on Twitter, but recently decided to pull back the reins on letting fans into her personal life via social media. Now she’s trying to stay out of the spotlight as much as possible.
“We were too nice to the world and gave them too much insight -- into my life and my puppies and my house -- and I just don’t feel they get that privilege anymore,” Cyrus said. “Like on my Twitter, I’m much more ... not conservative, but you don’t see a picture of my dogs. You don’t get that personal stuff anymore.”
Cyrus was once criticized for dancing with the help of a stripper pole during a concert, but she is more conservative when it comes to her career now.
“A star is someone who doesn't have to take her clothes off to be sexy because you naturally have star power. Sex does sell, but you have to find a way that's not just showing your tits,” she said. “I don't want to be a glorified model. They just walk on stage and it’s all about their clothes -- or lack of clothes.”
When Cyrus was asked about what it feels like to be famous, she reportedly said, “I feel like Rapunzel ... Rapunzel with a mohawk!”
Elle UK magazine’s June issue featuring Cyrus is set to appear on newsstands May 1.
