The Queen of Twerk, Miley Cyrus, has had a busy week promoting her new album, Bangerz, which went directly to #1 on the iTunes charts on the day of its release. Not too shabby, Miles! Several of the songs on the album address heartbreak and love lost — see "FU" featuring French Montana — and we have to know: were they inspired by her break-up with Liam Hemsworth?

Wonder no more, because in the midst of her promotional whirlwind, Miley set the record straight on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. After Ellen broke the ice by asking for a refund for the engagement party she threw her on the show, Miley offered up some insight into how the relationship’s end affected the album.

“The whole album is a story of that, and I think it says that starting with ‘Adore You’ and ending with ‘Someone Else,’” Miley confessed. “You can really find this arc of, like, growth … This really is telling a story, and I think I knew more intuitively where my life was going than I actually thought I did at the time.”

And if you’re worried about Miley, don’t be — she’s doing better already. “When a chapter is done, you have to close it and start that new one, and that’s kind of where I am right now,” she said. “I felt like I have so much to be thankful for at this time that my energy hasn’t really been focused on that.”

Don’t get her wrong, though: her expression of happiness is not a “dig” against Liam. “I really am genuinely happy, finally, with myself” she said. “I think sometimes it takes you separating yourself from someone else to really be happy with who you are.”

Well said!
