Miley Cyrus: "Wrecking Ball" Is A "F--k You" To My Ex

It seems Miley Cyrus exposed herself in more ways than one during her X-rated performance at G-A-Y over the weekend. In between simulating sex acts on blowup dolls and getting frisky with a giant inflatable penis, the pop star took a moment to get real with the crowd about her love life.
"I wrote this song after somebody broke my heart, and I just wanted to say 'f--k you,'" the 21-year-old singer told the London audience before belting out her hit "Wrecking Ball."
"I wanted to write a number one hit, something that would be on the radio," she added. "I wanted to make sure every time he turned on his radio, he would hear my song and will keep hearing it for the rest of his life."
Apparently, revenge is a dish best served on a certified-platinum record. At any rate, Cyrus' big reveal seems to confirm rumors that the song — about the end of a relationship — was inspired by her former fiancé, Liam Hemsworth. The couple split in September, just before she performed the song for the first time.
And, here we thought Taylor Swift was tough. (Extra)
