Is Miley Cyrus’ Hit Single ‘Flowers’ About Liam Hemsworth?
The internet has been quick with unearthing the meaning of ‘Flowers.’ The song came after the public split between Miley and Liam, and fan theories connect the lyrics with the painful breakup. Some had attributed the song as a response to Bruno Mars’ song ‘When I Was Your Man.’
While drawing biased first impressions of any piece of art is uncomplicated, we must focus on the message. ‘Flowers’ is much more than a wistful remembrance of damaged love. The song is about rising above the steel trap of past romantic reveries.

‘Endless Summer Vacation’ will release on March 10, 2023, through Columbia Records.
