Miley Cyrus’ Sister Brandi Breaks Silence on ‘Flowers’ Being About Liam Hemsworth and All the Fan Theories

Fashion

Miley Cyrus’ “Flowers,” seemingly about her breakup with ex-husband Liam Hemsworth, topped the chart in Hemsworth’s home country Australia, broke Spotify’s one-week streaming record, and sparked a plethora of fan theories about the music video containing particularly shady easter eggs about Hemsworth.

Fan theories include Cyrus’ gold dress possibly alluding to Hemsworth and Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence having a fling and Cyrus responding to Bruno Mars’ song “When I Was Your Man” in the chorus because Hemsworth allegedly dedicated the song to her while they were together. None of this has been confirmed by Cyrus; they’re all rumors. But her sister Brandi Cyrus spoke with Wells Adams on the “Your Favorite Thing” podcast about the fan theories directly.

She didn’t confirm or deny anything outright. Instead, she just marveled over her little sister’s genius.

“Miley’s new song, all the tea…and all the narratives that fans are making on TikTok. It’s so good,” Brandi said, via Us Weekly. “The song did come out on his birthday—was that on purpose? I don’t know. Can’t say. Genius, though.”

The narratives fans have created, “makes Miley seem like an absolute genius,” Brandi continued. “And it’s just too good. Like, every day I wake up to a new one. The first one was something about this Bruno Mars song. They’re like, ‘Liam played the Bruno Mars song at their wedding! And this is a response to the Bruno Mars song.’ That one’s funny.”

“Then there was, ‘The suit she’s wearing is the suit Liam wore at the Avengers premiere, where he told her that she needed to behave for once. And so this is a f*ck you because she’s in the suit.’ Hilarious,” Brandi added. “Then the other one was, ‘The house is the house where Liam used to take people [to] cheat on her with.’ The narratives are f*cking hilarious, but it’s so great. The best PR that could ever happen because it gets people talking about the song on TikTok and it’s everywhere. And it’s just so fun to watch it all play out. Miley fans, I love ya.”

When Wells asked Brandi if any of the theories were true, Brandi played coy. “I’m not here to say that’s true and what’s not true,” she answered. “Only Miley knows the truth.”
