Miley Cyrus sends cryptic message about relationship with vacation bikini pics
Being a celebrity in the 21st century means living near-constantly in the effervescent glare of the public spotlight.
Your every move will be watched, dissected and discussed endlessly, filling newspaper column inches and the comments sections of Instagram posts.
Now, more than ever before, the famous of the world are accessible to their fans. Of course, this is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it means they can flog their fans discount codes for charcoal toothpaste and gym wear, but on the other hand, it means facing up to harsh words from trolls essentially without cease.
It also means that the relationships of the rich and famous have become under closer scrutiny than ever before. No longer just the subject of tabloid speculation, we now see the marriages and relationships of celebrities play out in real time on social media.

And when they come to an end, the speculation is more intense than it has ever been. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have been forced to contend with this in recent weeks, after it was announced that the pair were separating.
Miley addressed the split in a series of tweets, writing;
"I can accept that the life I’ve chosen means I must live completely open and transparent with my fans who I love, and the public, 100% of the time. What I cannot accept is being told I’m lying to cover up a crime I haven’t committed. I have nothing to hide."
"Liam and I have been together for a decade," she continued. "I’ve said it before & it remains true, I love Liam and always will."
Miley Cyrus performs 'Slide Away', which many believe is about Liam Hemsworth:
"BUT at this point I had to make a healthy decision for myself to leave a previous life behind. I am the healthiest and happiest I have been in a long time. You can say I am a twerking, pot smoking, foul mouthed hillbilly but I am not a liar."
And now, Miley has taken to Instagram with two pics that appear to be from a recent vacation. In the first she writes;
"“I’m more of a man than you’ll ever be, & more of a woman than you’ll ever get!” - Jonathan Larson repost @samsmith"
And the second strikes a more mournful tone, with the singer writing, "Goodbyes are never easy... 🖤 but g2g"
The Mirror reports that Cyrus is currently on vacation at the Grand Canyon.
