Was Miley Cyrus taking a swipe at ex-husband Liam Hemsworth during her Flowers performance at the Grammys? Fans go wild over star’s ad-lib lyrics

Miley Cyrus appeared to take a swipe at ex-husband Liam Hemsworth as she performed her hit song Flowers at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday.

The American pop star, 31, delivered an electric performance of the chart-topping break-up song during the ceremony after scooping the award for Best Pop Solo Performance.

When she reached the bridge of the song, Miley seemed to make several references to her divorce by improvising around the lyrics.

Miley sang: ‘I didn’t want to leave you’, adding the line ‘but had to’, before singing the line ‘I didn’t want to fight’ and added ‘but we did’.

Finally, the singer boasted about her big win by ad-libbing the lyrics: ‘Started to cry, but then I remembered… I just won my first Grammy!’

Social media speculators speculated that Miley’s extra lyrics were directed at Liam, who is also believed to be the subject of the song.

‘The Liam shade between the lyrics, to Miley saying she just won a Grammy. Liam you are nothing,’ one fan wrote, while another added: ‘Liam Hemsworth is shaking in his boots right now, I just know.’

“Would hate to be Liam Hemsworth right now,” added another.

Miley and Liam tied the knot in December 2018, but announced their separation the following year in August 2019.

Their divorce was finalized at the beginning of 2020.

Flowers – released on her ex’s 33rd birthday – appears to include a reference to the former couple’s Malibu home burning in the California wildfires, as well as several infamously awkward red carpet moments between the pair.

In the opening verse, Miley sings that they “built a house and watched it burn,” likely referring to the $2.5 million home she shared with Liam that burned in the 2018 fires.

She also references the Australian star’s sudden act of divorce by singing: ‘I didn’t want to leave you / I didn’t want to lie / started crying.’

It was believed at the time that Miley wanted to work on their 10-year on-again/off-again relationship and was shocked by Liam suddenly filing for divorce in 2019.

Social media speculators speculated that Miley's extra lyrics were directed at Liam, who is also believed to be the subject of the song.
