Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson have officially called it quits on their relationship … TMZ has learned.
Sources close to the former couple tell us they split within the last few weeks, and it’s unclear right now what led to the break-up.
Miley and Cody started dating in October 2019, shortly after Miley’s split from Kaitlynn Carter … which followed her divorce from Liam Hemsworth.
Instantly, the two were constantly posting pics together all over both of their social media pages. Some of their greatest hits include flirty birthday posts and some fun TikTok dance vids.
It was also Cody who took care of Miley in November of last year when she underwent vocal cord surgery — and in March, they got matching tattoos.
Cyrus has plenty to look forward to though, professionally at least … her new single “Midnight Sky” — her first in years — is set to drop tonight.
See You Again Miley’s first hit, and something of a landmark track, as it marked her transition from cheery Disney princess Hannah Montana into herself. It peaked at Number 11 in 2008 – a position Miley would see quite a bit of over the next few years. See You Again has 203,000 chart sales, including 5 million streams, to rank as her 12th biggest track.
The Climb The Top 10 evaded Miley yet again with this sweeping ballad, stalling at Number 11 in spring 2009. But there was bigger success ahead for this song — just for someone else. X Factor winner Joe McElderry covered the track and took it to Number 1 (eventually) at New Year and even gave Miley a boost in the process, returning her version to the Top 40. Although she didn’t manage to clamber to Joe’s heights, The Climb has a sales tally of 673,000 (including 34.2 million streams) under its utility belt to rank as her sixth biggest single.
Party In The USA The curse of Number 11 struck yet again for Miley – what was this girl gonna have to do to get in that Top 10? It’s practically internet law that when talking about this song, you must mention Jessie J was one of the writers, so there you go. Party in the USA 1.04 million chart sales (including 82 million streams) to be Miley’s biggest track overall in the UK.
Can’t Be Tamed As with most stars who start out with a cutesy, tween image, Miley was trying to shed her Hannah Montana skin once and for all, and her first serious attempt was on Can’t Be Tamed. The track is basically a three-minute long statement of intent – Miley will be breaking free and doing her own thing anytime soon and was unstoppable.
In case you missed the song’s subtleties, Miley was in a cage for the video. Needless to say, the track’s parent album would be her last with that record label. Can’t Be Tamed couldn’t charm its way past Number 13, sadly, but it has sold 121,000 chart sales to rank as her 16th biggest song. And now comes the big change we knew was coming…
We Can’t Stop So what does Miley have to do to get into the Top 10, we asked. Well, the answer seems to be wreck a mansion, bath in milk, lick everything in site, step on a skull made of french fries, hint that someone is doing drugs in the next room, twerk, rock a onesie and create general havoc. Oh, and produce a genuinely brilliant pop song that would perfectly capture the (rich) millennial moment.
We Can’t Stop, lead single from Miley’s amazingly titled album Bangerz, divided fans and critics alike but it was pretty unapologetic, especially when it went straight in at Number 1 in August 2013 to give Miley her first Top 10 and chart-topper to boot. We Can’t Stop currently stands as her fourth biggest track on 902,000 chart sales, including 42.7 million streams.
Wrecking Ball How do you follow a heavily stylised, hedonistic call to arms like We Can’t Stop? Well, you sit on a wrecking ball naked, that’s how. The Miley media machine was in full swing with the release of this emotional, yet ballsy ballad that both showed Miley’s sensitive side and added more fuel to the fire of controversy – especially when Miley licked a sledgehammer. Look, she’s just naturally curious, OK?
Wrecking Ball also went straight in at the top, beating Eminem in the process. The track smashed its way to 968,000 chart sales, making it her third biggest song.
Malibu Returning to her pop-rock roots in 2017, Malibu, the lead single from Younger Now, blended the genres of country and pop to create a song that is really charming tand makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside. Miley’s first hit in the streaming age, it became Miley’s fourth to peak at Number 11, and ranks as her fifth biggest single overall with 748,000 chart sales.
Elsewhere, Miley’s most recent UK chart entry, three-way collab Don’t Call Me Angel with Ariana Grande and Lana Del Rey, is her ninth biggest song (268,000 chart sales), while her massive Mark Ronson duet Nothing Breaks Like A Heart is second on 984,000. Both songs reached Number 2.
Miley Cyrus is back with new music! On Aug. 10, Cyrus dropped a teaser for her upcoming single, “Midnight Sky,” alongside a Rocky Horror-esque video of her lips. This is just the latest in a number of somewhat cryptic teasers the 27-year-old’s posted on her Instagram, including a clip from her “Start All Over” video, which she simply captioned “Meet Miley Cyrus. . . again.” Cyrus exudes boss b*tch attitude in the clips, wearing head-to-toe designer labels.
This could be hinting at a new era of music for the singer following her 2019 She Is ComingEP, as “Midnight Sky” seems to have an electro-pop vibe complete with a light helping of synth. Cyrus also teased that Dua Lipa had heard what the fans hadn’t. Does this mean that there’s a collaboration in the works? Could Dua Lipa actually be on the song? While you may have to wait until Aug. 14 to get all the answers, you can put this teaser on repeat.
“Miley and Liam spoke very little after their separation and any communication was more about making decisions regarding plans and property,” the source says. “They haven’t been in touch in months and it has been for the best because they have both needed this time to heal and move on.”
“Her divorce from Liam and her new relationship with Cody was a whirlwind of change for her, but in true Miley fashion she has come out on top,” the source says, before describing Simpson as “lots of fun and a good friend to Miley.”
“What began as close friends supporting one another during a rough time, blossomed into more,” the source says. “Their relationship was unexpected and became meaningful very quickly, and she couldn’t be happier. They are both very passionate about their music and it’s something that has bonded them.”
Another thing that’s positively impacted Cyrus’ relationship with Simpson is her sobriety, which began after a vocal chord surgery last November.
“Miley’s sobriety has made her very present in her relationship,” the source says. “Her decision to be sober has changed the way she thinks about life. She would describe herself as a believer in this new way of life and is looking to make sobriety a long-term lifestyle.”
Cyrus has big things in the works professionally as well, and “is excited for her first single to hit.”
“She’s thrilled to be getting back to work on her new album and she is really proud to share songs that have personal meaning to her,” the source says.
On Sunday, she teased her new music on Instagram, writing, “Forever and ever no more. 🖤 The #MidnightSky is the road I’m taking…. head high up in the clouds.”
She came in like a wrecking ball with her new song on Instagram.
Miley Cyrus released a teaser Wednesday for her forthcoming track “Midnight Sky” by posting it on Instagram using a nifty feature from the app’s new video platform, Reels.
In a clip showcasing the new tune, the genre-bending singer poses cooly in sunglasses, layered necklaces and a white tank top in front of a neon sign reading “disco” while the groovy notes play in the background. Her jewelry and shades glisten with digitally edited sparkles as she moves through the pink light in the video captioned, “Tease.”
In a separate post, Cyrus directly called out the new feature, writing: “MIDNIGHT SKY – teaser available on Instagram Reels.”
The 27-year-old — who is set to release a new album called “She Is Miley Cyrus” — drummed up excitement about the app’s latest TikTok-like feature, and Reels was trending on Twitter shortly after. Cyrus has yet to announce an official release date for her seventh album.
Idolator recently posted an article about the “10 videos that were rudely snubbed by the 2020 VMAs”. Featured in their list was the video for Mother’s Daughter by Miley Cyrus. Check out what they said below!
Everything that I said for “Harleys In Hawaii” applies here [‘one of the most underrated pop songs in recent memory’ and ‘capturing the mood of a song visually is an art unto itself’] (when are Smilers getting justice for this anthem?). However, the omission of “Mother’s Daughter” is even more alarming because Miley’s mini-masterpiece is actually important thanks to its racial diversity, queer representation and unblinking body positivity. Surely this is the exact kind of messaging that the VMAs should get behind?
In a recent interview with Cosmopolitan, Hilary Duff spoke about Miley Cyrus and joked about a Lizzie Maguire and Hannah Montana crossover. Check out what she had to say below!
In the past, Miley Cyrus has given you credit for inspiring her to take on Hannah Montana. Do you think there could ever be a crossover between Hannah Montana and Lizzie McGuire? Oh my god, I’ve never heard that one. But you might be starting something right now. I love Miley, I recently was on her show that she created during the quarantine, and she’s just awesome. She’s always showing me so much love and it kind of embarrasses me in a way. I’m like, come on, you’re like the epitome of cool and it’s really sweet that she’s just so vocal about being a fan growing up with me and I love her. And I don’t know, I’ve never thought about a Hannah Montana and Lizzie McGuire crossover, but never say never! Anything goes these days, right?
