Miley Cyrus, one of the hottest acts in music right now, is stopping by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Friday (Oct. 11), where she talks about her infamous MTV Video Music Awards performance and her split from ex-fiance Liam Hemsworth, plus in the video at the bottom, Ellen gives Miley a bobblebutt figurine of herself twerking and a fishnet onesie — “I will actually wear this,” says Miley.

Miley on the all attention she has been receiving:
Ellen: Are you surprised by all the attention that is going on right now, surrounding you?

 Miley:  It’s pretty intense. I was telling you earlier, I mean it’s kind if the craziest time in my whole life. I think of everything that I did getting up to this moment.  I feel like it was all just me training for this marathon that I’m in the middle of right now.  It’s the most insane week of my life and I don’t know how I’m still standing and kind of awake. It’s kind of been amazing. I’ve just been everywhere but making my album number one has been … made it all ok.

Miley on the VMAs:

Ellen: The one thing that I think I’m surprised by you know, Robin Thicke was on the stage as well …

Miley: No one talks about that. No one cares about the man behind the booty. You only care about the one that’s shaking it. Double standard.

Ellen:  I think what people thought was he was surprised by it …

Miley: He was in rehearsal as much as I was and loving it, people. And loving it.

Ellen: So everyone there knew.  There was rehearsal everyone knew what was going to happen.

Miley: Everyone there knew except maybe some other people in the audience. I saw a lot faces that were kind of like… [look of shock] ‘Should we be laughing at this?  Is this supposed to be funny?’ It was supposed to be funny. It was supposed to be funny somewhat obviously … provocative.”

Miley on her split from fiance Liam Hemsworth:

Ellen: So the last time you were here I threw you an engagement party …

Miley:  Do you want your money back?

Ellen: I want my money back. I sent like you know [shows clip of the strippers dancing for Miley] You enjoyed it.

Miley: I should of kept one of those dudes’ numbers…

Ellen: Now is that an awkward thing now that all this attention is going on and you’re not with him?

Miley: It’s not really as awkward because I’m living it. So I think people spend more time actually thinking about it then I really do. I just believe when a chapter is done you have to close it and start that new one. That’s kind of where I am right now. I felt like I have so much to be thankful for at this time that my energy hasn’t really been focused on that. It’s actually; I’ve been kind of impressed with people and how much they’ve actually shown more respect … from what I have seen I felt like people have really focused on my music right now when I’ve needed them and have actually been really good about that because that’s the only thing I worried about I didn’t want it to me to sacrifice what I’ve been working for. For just the attention to be on that.

Ellen: Or to overshadow that. And did you write anything? Is there anything on this album that?

Miley: The whole album is a story of that. I think it says that with starting with “Adore You” and ending with  “Someone Else” is I feel like you can really find like this arch of like growth and I didn’t even know as much of… until I really listened to it now that it’s done and I have like my physical copy and I put it in my car. I’m like this is really like telling a story.  I think I knew more intuitively where my life was going then I actually thought I did at the time.

Ellen: I didn’t want to read into it and assume that but it does sound like that.  And, are you friendly?  Do you speak or?

Miley: You know for me I really haven’t gotten to see anyone right now. Cause I’ve been so crazy busy.  I’m just letting that chapter kind of close and just looking forward to that new one… I want to be really clear and determined with everything I’m doing in my life right now and I have been… I keep saying I’m the happiest I’ve ever been and that’s not even a dig. That’s just me because I really am genuinely happy finally with myself which I think sometimes it takes you separating yourself from someone else to really be happy with who you are. I’ve never been able to just be alone and I’m obsessed with being alone and like hearing my thoughts.
