Despite recent rumors that Miley Cyrus and her fiancé, 23 year-old Liam Hemsworth, have hit a rough patch in their four-year relationship and put their wedding on hold, Miley Cyrus tells the April issue of ELLE UK that getting engaged to The Hunger Games actor was the natural next step.

"We have a house together and dogs. It just seems right to be wearing this ring and to be committed," Cyrus says at the time of the interview. "But we keep our relationship low-key and don't talk about it anymore."
Cyrus and Hemsworth met on the set of The Last Song in 2010 and got engaged in May 2012. After recent news of the couple's reported break up, Cyrus took to Twitter in March and posted, “I am so sick of LA. And sick of the lies that come with it. I didn't call off my wedding. Taking a break from social media. #draining."
Previously prone to frequent postings on Twitter, the Can't Be Tamed singer says she is recently making a conscious effort to keep her private life private.
"We were too nice to the world and gave them too much insight -- into my life and my puppies and my house –- and I just don't feel they get that privilege any more. Like on my Twitter, I'm much more . . . not conservative, but you don't see a picture of my dogs. You don't get that personal stuff any more."
What Cyrus says she is being more conservative about, however, is showing her body. Though often seen photographed in skin-baring outfits, Cyrus says she knows what's sexy.

"A star is someone who doesn't have to take her clothes off to be sexy because you naturally have star power. Sex does sell, but you have to find a way that's not just showing your tits," she told ELLE. "I don't want to be a glorified model. They just walk on stage and it's all about their clothes -- or lack of clothes."
