Coincidence? Miley Cyrus seemed to be in a great mood on Friday, March 22, just two days after fiance Liam Hemsworth** flew back to L.A. from his native Australia, where he was visiting family and taking a “beat” from his relationship with the LOL actress. Joining Ryan Seacrest** at the Children’s Hospital of Orange County in Orange, Calif., where the radio host was broadcasting his KIIS FM show, Cyrus, 20, happily joked about twerking and working with Snoop Lion for her upcoming album.
“I haven’t really seen one bad comment about my twerk video,” the star told Seacrest of the clip she posted on March 20, in which she dances to J. Dash’s “Wop” while wearing a unicorn onesie. “This is the first thing! I can’t sing, I can’t act, I’m dumb, I’m a hillbilly, but I can twerk, so whatever!”
(Twerking is a form of dancing that involves gyrating and shaking one’s bottom in a suggestive manner. “You can’t really explain it,” Cyrus said. “It’s something that comes naturally…it’s a lot of booty action.”)
The singer confessed that she had “been practicing [twerking] probably for the past two years” but was surprised at the positive reaction. “I can’t believe how many people think I’m good at twerking — which is dope — like my life goal has been accomplished,” she joked. “I thought it was so weird, and [I thought] people were going to think it was so weird, but I’m glad that everyone understands my humor.”
The Hannah Montana alum also talked about her upcoming album, which features a collaboration with none other than Snoop Lion (formerly known as Snoop Dogg). “I did a song with Snoop, and it’s coming out very, very soon. Very soon,” she revealed. “[It’s] recorded, done, and I’m, like, so excited about it.”
Seacrest replied that a Snoop Dogg collaboration isn’t something he’d expect from a Miley Cyrus album — which is exactly the point. “I want this record to be, you know, just something that’s, like, different and a bunch of, like, passion projects,” the singer explained.
“[Snoop] was in Europe when he was recording, but he’s here this weekend, so I’m pretty excited,” she continued. “I think I’m going to take a bunch of my friends and go hang out.”
One thing the star didn’t address is whether Hemsworth, 23, would be among those friends. A source told Us Weekly recently that the couple have been enduring “the worst fights of their relationship” over the past few months. Cyrus denied that they called off their wedding, but she was spotted without her engagement ring several times while her fiance was abroad.
Earlier this week, though, she put the ring back on. And on Wednesday, the day of Hemsworth’s return to L.A., she tweeted, “Such a dope day.”
