Miley Cyrus was happily reunited with Liam Hemsworth when she released the love song, “Malibu,” in 2017. Now, on the song’s four-year anniversary in 2021, things look very different, as the pair ended their relationship nearly two years ago.
However, Miley Cyrus doesn’t look back on that time in a negative light. “Today is the 4 year anniversary of “Malibu,”” she wrote on Instagram. “A song about a place and person that at the time I loved very much. That love was reciprocated beyond what I could describe here with freedom & escapism.”
She also shared a behind the scenes video of herself recording “Malibu,” and reminisced about losing her home there in a 2018 wildfire. “I lost that home along with many others in 2018,” she explained.
“Here is a video of me writing it in my home studio.” After losing their Malibu home to that fire, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth leaned on each other, and even got married before the end of that year. Unfortunately, the marriage was short-lived, and they divorced just eight months later.
