Miley Cyrus: 'I Don't Have Time' to Always Be With Liam
As the former Disney darling puts the finishing touches on her upcoming album, she's struggling to balance her professional with her personal life with fiancé Liam Hemsworth.
"I'm not home with my boyfriend all the time," Cyrus says in the May issue of V magazine, which she covers three times over (see above). "We work! He gets up to work out at six and I come home around five from the studio."
And Cyrus, 20, is well aware that her time apart from Hemsworth, 23, sets the rumor mill rolling. Over the past few months, the couple — who announced their engagement in June 2012 — has been plagued by speculation of a split.
"Every week it's, 'Are they broken up? Because we don't see a photo of them,'" Cyrus explains. "I don't have time to go to Starbucks with my boyfriend every morning. I wish I did, but I don't."
"I've put this record before everything and I've never done that before," she says. "I've put too much into this record to put anything else in front of it."
Though she's fielding flak over the years for her sometimes wild ways, Cyrus would always prefer chill time with her hubby-to-be over hitting the club.
"I'm going to change. I'm going to be different. I'm going to do what I want to do," she says. "[But] I'd rather chill at my house and be there for the time I actually get to spend with him."
