Is Miley Cyrus being controlled and isolated by Liam Hemsworth?


Liam Hemsworth is Miley Cyrus’s first great love. When they initially got together, it was an on-set romance that managed to last longer than some predicted. They were together for more than a year, and then, not surprisingly, they split. Most of us just rolled our eyes at Miley, and hoped that she wouldn’t go to crazy after the breakup. Then something weird happened – everything around Miley went crazy (like her father), but she didn’t. She kept her head down, kept doing her work, managed to keep a consistently lower profile, and suddenly, magically, Miley and Liam were back together. And for their second time around, it seems… different. Less famewhore-y. Less like an on-set romance between two young kids, destined to fail. It seems more like a real relationship, with give and take and growth on (hopefully) both sides. Us Weekly has a story on why Miley and Liam are making it work this time:

For Miley Cyrus, the secret to rebuilding her romance with Liam Hemsworth was learning how to relax.

“He wanted her to calm down and stop going out as much,” says a source close to the Australian Hunger Games actor, 21, who split with Cyrus after a year of dating and reuniting with her this spring.

So the singer, 18, focused more on a homebody lifestyle.

“Now they’re doing more things like game nights and having friends come over,” says the insider. “They have a lot of fun together!”

I like that Liam is teaching Miley the value of not partying, of not being a mess, of being quiet and low-key. I hope that this is a sign that Liam adores her as much as I think she adores him. I hope that this isn’t a sign that he’s controlling her and isolating her. You never know, but I do think his influence is probably overwhelmingly positive. Miley’s gotten a lot better, y’all.

    Honestly, I like her the most out of all the current Disney girls. She seems a little more grounded than the rest of them. She’s a terrible actress. But, I don’t hate all of her music and I’m fully willing to admit that “see you again” is one of my *really* guilty pleasures on the treadmill. She seems like a reasonably nice kid, all things considered, and I wish her well.

  2. RocketMerry says:

    I just can’t believe how good their skin looks! Wow.

  3. marybeth18 says:

    I think her lower profile is a good strategy- the girl had reached maximum saturation and she was annoying as hell. I used to be unbelievably bothered by her, but since I’ve gotten this break, I find that I have genuine sympathy for her family craziness and hope that she’s happy.

  4. tapioca says:

    Isn’t her lower profile due to everyone being a bit, kinda over her? The sexy stuff probably alienated a lot of her younger fans and if I want to see a woman humping one of her dancers in a skimpy costume I’ll go see Rihanna! Still, now she’s no longer everywhere I hope this relationship works out for her – he seems like a great, down-to-earth guy.

  5. carrie says:

    she understands she needs private life and to grow outside of paparazzi eyes

  6. carrie says:

    and for once a guy loves for herself

  7. brin says:

    She needs a good influence…and he’s good looking, too.

  8. Quest says:

    It’s good that Miley has something positive and stable in her life. Good for her.

  9. mannequin says:

    Do you really think it’s possible for Liam to tame this little firecat? She can’t be tamed, remember?
    Certainly, he can only be an asset to Ms Miley.

  10. the original bellaluna says:

    Ok. I could be nasty, but I’ll just say “thank you” to Liam. (And not just because my precious engaged-in-Hunger Games to Drive Mommy Crazy-enrolled toddler shares the name. Look, he was named for MEANING – look it up – but I do loves me some Liam Neeson!)

    I don’t want to see any new tattoos or other such BS.

    Just don’t let her get Lohan-esque.


  11. poof says:

    Ummm he’s hot. But then again I was in an awesome dive bar drinking all night.

  12. Mari says:

    @Poof- Your beer goggles have properly adjusted, he’s smokin’ hot.

  13. Brend says:

    Miley controlled? That’s just silly. How about she’s finally with a guy who suits her? Anyone can see this is a real relationship that started as a passionate infatuation two years ago and now is a true day to day give and take. For all the things people call Miley, she’s the one with the long term healthy relationship. And he’s gorgeous.

  14. BellaLuna says:

    I like the last picture. Shes looking at him like shes totally in love

  15. Nanea says:

    I don’t think Miley would let anyone control her.

    She was the one who made all decisions in the Cyrus household, as she was the big earner, and she had her own secluded area in their house. (which was hers anyway)

  16. Amanda says:

    I wouldn’t say control as much as being a good influence?

  17. UKHels says:

    perhaps he’s actually trying to steer her away from being the new Britney and all around her should thank him for that…

  18. Sloane Wyatt says:

    Hanging out with a hot successful guy who’s sweet on you is way better than patrolling for strange in the clubs.

    Good on you, Miley!

  19. Denise says:

    Anything that separates her from her crazy family…..besides which, he is hot. This is definitely a positive, if it lasts.

  20. kimberly says:

    I only read the headline but,



  21. Evelyn says:

    She used to bother me so much, but I think it’s sweet how much they seem to adore each other. And I think she’s basically a good girl who never had a positive influence, but now that she has someone level-headed to watch out for her, I think she’ll do much better

  22. caroline says:

    whoa kaiser, that was a pretty misleading headline…

  23. Ashley says:

    @DetRiotgirl: ‘See You Again’ is one of my secret guilty pleasure songs too!

  24. The Bobster says:

    He’s prettier than she is.

  25. Jb says:

    Um, where did you come up with isolating and controlling? I didn’t get that at all from this post. I got, “good for them.”

  26. Ally says:

    Is this still the same fella who willingly shagged La Winehouse?

  27. marybeth18 says:

    @Evelyn: You are right that she never had a really positive influence in her life, since she has been the main breadwinner since she was, what, 13?
    There are definitely echoes of Lindsay Lohan there, so for Miley’s sake I hope that Liam is a genuine, positive and loving influence on her. He certainly seems to be based on her behavior since they got back together.
    She’s only 18- there’s a lot of room for growth and maturity if she is gently guided in the right direction.

  28. corey says:

    photo assumption says she’s into it for than he is, but overall she looks really happy and healthy and that’s all that matters.

  29. Magsy says:

    Good maybe he can keep her off tv.

  30. kikay says:

    Out of those Disney girls ,i like Miley the best too,You don’t see her on tabloids anymore unlike that Selina girl,and it doesn’t hurt that the girl can sing too,i like her song “obsessed” as my guilty pleasure.

  31. Cammie says:

    I actually like them together and she seems to have calm down

  32. Kathleen Gourn says:
