Miley Cyrus Dishes About Her First Love
Miley Cyrus’ new memoir, Miles to Go, is officially an autobiography, but parts of it clearly belong in the Mystery section.
The 16-year-old Hannah Montana star writes about the first time she fell in love and, while she declines to reveal the identity of the lucky guy, it sounds an awful lot like she’s talking about an ex-beau of hers whose name rhymes with “Sick Bonus.”
“Hannah Montana had only been on the air for a few months when I went to a benefit for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation,” Cyrus recalls in the book. “I remember the exact date, June 11 2006. It was the day I met my first love.”
Miley’s ex-boyfriend Nick Jonas, of course, is well known for his charitable contributions toward fighting juvenile illnesses, particularly diabetes.
Cyrus goes on to detail that, though she didn’t know much about the boy who would become her true love, “I knew from a friend that he thought I was pretty. He came up to me with a bunch of guy friends and introduced himself. Instantly, I wanted them all to go away just to be with him. He started to shake my hand, and I said, ‘I don’t do handshakes, I do hugs.'”
After a group dinner date and an all-night phone session, Cyrus writes, their relationship became “more intense and more fun.” Basketball games. Nintendo challenges. And very special bike rides together.
“[H]e would walk along next to me as I rode, singing ‘My Girl,'” Cyrus recalls in the book. “But instead of ‘My Girl,’ he’d sing ‘Miley, talkin’ bout Miley.’ Wow! I was so in love.”
Unfortunately, on December 19th, 2007—”the hardest day ever,” Cyrus writes—the two called it quits. Cyrus admits that she continued to harbor feelings for her mystery man—dubbed “Prince Charming” in the book—which eventually led her to write a musical paean to him that you might have heard once or twice.
“I was angry when I wrote ‘7 Things,'” Cyrus recalls. “I wanted to punish him, to get back at him for hurting me. It starts with a list of what I ‘hate.’ But I’m not a hater. My heart knew from the start that it was going to turn into a love song. Why does he get a love song? Because I don’t hate him.”
Whoa; sounds like Cyrus is still carrying a microphone in one hand and a torch in the other.
Readers, have your say in the comments section—is Miley writing about her relationship with Nick Jonas, or some other mystery man?
