About a month after Miley Cyrus started scootin’ her hillbilly business on her ex-fiancé Liam Hemsworth again, she took the engagement ring he gave her out of its fancy box and started wearing it again. That “Why me?” face Miley made when she decided to re-debut her ring on Instagram might not have been because she was dressed like the eliminated look from the Strawberry Shortcake challenge on Project Runway.
Miley recently confessed to Ellen DeGeneres that the tasteful gold and diamond ring Liam gave her is the opposite of what she’s going for.
“It’s very weird, because this is like, real jewelry, and most of my jewelry is made out of gummi bears and cotton candy. And they don’t look that good together because they kind of mix up. So sometimes I replace it with an actual unicorn or a Looney Tunes, and he’s kind of like ‘What’s going on?’, and it’s like ‘Well, this isn’t really my aesthetic, but I’ll wear it because you love me.'”
She also got into whether or not that ring on that fanger is an engagement ring. Back in April, Liam was asked during an Australian TV interview if he was engaged to Miley again, and he answered: “I am not engaged, no.” Miley explained the situation, and apparently that ring is more of a millennial commitment symbol or something. .
“I think, young people in general, what we wear and what a relationship and a commitment means is very different to what tabloids like to make it mean. And I even think young people have a different idea of partnering and not feeling that this necessarily means this is going to have a legal document signed and dated. It’s really sharing a life with someone, not a legal paper that tells me anything. Even though I fought so hard for LGBTQ rights [and] to be able to get married, but I don’t even really want to.”
Either Miley is lying about the status of her ring because she wants to throw the tabloids off and take a couple weeks off from reading about her secret weddings, or she’s telling the truth and that ring is essentially a really expensive middle school promise ring. If she doesn’t want to get married, the least Liam can do is commission a less-wedding-like ring for his lady. How many hints does she have to drop here, Liam? She wants something with gummi bears, cotton candy, unicorns, Looney Tunes. Actually, Liam could cut out the middle man and make it himself. Just dip Miley’s hand in glue and push her into the prize wall at Chuck E. Cheese’s. There, instant dream ring!
