Having it all isn’t easy for Miley Cyrus.
As the former Disney star works on a new album, she struggles to balance her relationship with fiancé Liam Hemsworth.
“I’m not home with my boyfriend all the time,” Cyrus says in the May issue of V Magazine. “We work! He gets up to work out at six and I come home around five from the studio.”
But she acknowledges the time away away from Hemsworth, 23, has sparked split rumors.
“Every week it’s, ‘Are they broken up? Because we don’t see a photo of them,’ ” Cyrus says. “I don’t have time to go to Starbucks with my boyfriend every morning. I wish I did, but I don’t.”
Instead, the 20-year-old is focusing on her music and is expected to release a new album before the end of the year.
“I’ve put this record before everything and I’ve never done that before,” she says. “I’ve put too much into this record to put anything else in front of it.”
