Miley Cyrus has had a year of ups and downs – one of the low points was breaking off her engagement to Liam Hemsworth. But in an interview with Barbara Walters, the singer says she’s learned a lot and wouldn’t change a thing.
“I don’t think I realized what 19 truly is, and I got engaged at 19, and I definitely wouldn’t change being engaged. It was so fun wearing a fat rock for a few years,” Miley said. “But now, I just feel like I can actually be happy.”
The 21-year-old says she no longer feels anxious about being alone. “I wait for those moments of silence, when I’m just at my house, by myself,” she says. “I was so scared of ever being alone, and I think, conquering that fear, this year, was actually bigger than any other transition that I had, this entire year.
“I don’t ever want to have to need someone again, where you feel like, without them, you can’t be yourself.”
But the ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer hasn’t ruled out marriage altogether. “I think I’ll want that in the time that it needs to be.”
