Miley Cyrus’ new song “Flowers” has given rise to several theories among fans, all about her ex Liam Hemsworth. We list the biggest theories surrounding the hit song!
Since Miley Cyrus released her new song “Flowers” earlier this month, the song has been a success on Spotify and TikTok, as well as taking first place on several charts worldwide.
Much points to the song being about Cyrus’ ex Liam Hemsworth, whom she met in 2010 and was married to between 2018 and 2019. The song was released on Hemsworth’s birthday, January 13, and in addition, the first verse seems to be about their house in Malibu, among other things which suffered a devastating fire in 2018:
“We were right ’til we weren’t / Built a home and watched it burn”, she sings.
However, there are several details regarding the hit song that have caught the interest of fans. Below we list three wild theories about Miley Cyrus’ “Flowers”.
1. The song is a response to “When I was your man” by Bruno Mars
The similarities between “Flowers” and “When I was your man” by Bruno Mars are obvious. The fan’s theory is that Hemsworth should have dedicated the song to Miley at one point, and that she has now responded in words:
“I should’ve bought you flowers and held your hand” (“I should’ve bought you flowers and held your hand”) has in Cyrus’ song become: “I can buy myself flowers” and “I can hold my own hand” (“I can buy myself flowers” and “I can hold my own hand”).
When Hemsworth would have dedicated the song to Cyrus is unclear, but according to some theories it would have been at their wedding in 2018.
2. The golden dress is about Jennifer Lawrence
In the music video for “Flowers”, Cyrus wears an iconic vintage golden dress from Yves Saint Laurent’s fall 1991 collection. According to many fans, the look is a nod to the dress Jennifer Lawrence wore to the premiere of The Hunger Games 2012.
Cyrus and Hemsworth reportedly met in 2010 and broke up several times over the years. One of their most famous breakups took place in 2013, i.e. in the same vein as The Hunger Games-the films were recorded. Lawrence confessed in an interview in Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in 2015 that she and Hemsworth had kissed outside the filming of the movies:
“Liam and I grew up together,” she said in the interview. “Liam is very handsome. What would you have done?”

3. The music video was shot in a house where Hemsworth cheated on Cyrus
Perhaps the most limitless theory surrounding “Flowers” is that Hemsworth cheated on Cyrus with fourteen other women in the house used in the song’s music video.
How the theory originated is not known, however, we do know that neither Cyrus nor Hemsworth have claimed that infidelity was the cause of their 2019 split:
“I can admit a lot of things, but I refuse to admit that my marriage ended because of infidelity,” Cyrus said after the separation. “Liam and I have been together for a decade. I’ve said it before and it’s still true, I love Liam and always will.”
