Miley Cyrus made her first awards show outing since her split from Liam Hemsworth at the MTV Video Music Awards.
And she most definitely wore her heart on her sleeve.
The 26-year-old debuted a post break-up tattoo as she performed her new single Slide Away at the VMAs.
While posing backstage in a slinky black dress, cursive writing could be seen on Miley’s left bicep, reading: ‘My head was feeling scared, but my heart was feeling free’ – a lyric from The Thing by Pixies.
This is the second tatt Miley has got this month, also having an artistic piece based on an Italian sculpture inked on her forearm after she returned from her holiday with Kaitlynn Carter.
The girls’ romance first materialised in Lake Como as they holidayed together with friends just weeks after Kaitlynn, 30, confirmed her split from husband of one year Brody Jenner.
Then the proverbial really hit the fan when Miley confirmed she and Liam, 29, had parted ways after 10 years together and eight months of marriage.
The timing of her poolside PDA with Kaitlynn wasn’t ideal, with rumours that the star had cheated on The Hunger Games actor rife.
However, Miley recently took to Twitter to shoot down the claims.
The Wrecking Ball singer tweeted: ‘I can accept that the life I’ve chosen means I must live completely open and transparent with my fans who I love, and the public, 100% of the time. What I cannot accept is being told I’m lying to cover up a crime I haven’t committed. I have nothing to hide.
‘It is no secret that I was into partying in my teens and early 20’s. I have not only smoked, but advocated for weed, I’ve experimented with drugs, my biggest song to date is about dancing on molly and snorting lines in the bathroom.
‘I f***ed up and cheated in relationships when I was young. I lost a massive Walmart deal at 17 for ripping a bong. I got kicked off hotel Transylvania for buying Liam a penis cake for his birthday and licking it. I swung on a wrecking ball naked. There are probably more nudes of me on the internet than maybe any woman in history.
‘But the truth is, once Liam & I reconciled,I meant it, & I was committed. There are NO secrets to uncover here. I’ve learned from every experience in my life. I’m not perfect, I don’t want to be, it’s boring. I’ve grown up in front of you, but the bottom line is, I HAVE GROWN UP.
‘I can admit to a lot of things but I refuse to admit that my marriage ended because of cheating. Liam and I have been together for a decade. I’ve said it before & it remains true, I love Liam and always will.
‘BUT at this point I had to make a healthy decision for myself to leave a previous life behind. I am the healthiest and happiest I have been in a long time. You can say I am a twerking, pot smoking , foul mouthed hillbilly but I am not a liar. I am proud to say, I am simply in a different place from where i was when I was a younger.’
And Slide Away seems to suggest that the couple simply grew apart, with lyrics including: ‘Move on, we’re not 17, I’m not who I used to be, You say that everything changed, You’re right, we’re grown now.’
However, Miley seemed to throw a bit of shade at her ex at the VMAs, changing ‘we’re grown now’ to ‘I’m grown now’.
Miley left the VMAs hand in hand with Kaitlynn, who flew to New York to support the artist formerly known as Hannah Montana.
The Hills: New Beginnings star was also seen caressing Miley’s hair backstage, and we’re starting to suspect this is more than a holiday romance.
