Miley Cyrus: Breaking Up With Nick Jonas Was Hard

Miley Cyrus: Breaking Up With Nick Jonas Was Hard

Miley Cyrus finally opens up about her break up with Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers in the September 2008 issue of Seventeen magazine.

Despite her success as a Disney superstar, she’s still a normal girl learning from her mistakes. Miley dishes on the extreme lengths she went to heal from her heartbreak, the price of being a role model and her recent Vanity Fair photo controversy.

“[Nick and I] became boyfriend and girlfriend the day we met,” he 15-year-old Hannah Montana star shared. “He was on a quest to meet me, and he was like, ‘I think you’re beautiful and I really like you.’ And I was like, ‘Oh, my gosh, I like you so much.’ Nick and I loved each other. We still do, but we were in love with each other. For two years he was basically my 24/7. But it was really hard to keep it from people. We were arguing a lot, and it really wasn’t fun.”

When asked how she dealt with her break-up from Nick, Miley said, “At first I bawled for a month straight. I was so sad. I just went into this weird funk. And I dyed my hair black. When we were dating, Nick wanted me to get highlights – and so I did that, and I got myself looking great. And then, on the day we broke up, I was like, I want to make my hair black now – I don’t want to look pretty; I want to look hard-core. I was rebelling against everything Nick wanted me to be. And then I was like, I’ve got to be by myself for now, and just figure out who I really am.”

  • carol


  • Future mrs.Joejonas

    WOW I never thought that she’d actually admit it..
    It all kind of makes sense now.. It’s just sad because I guess she broke up with Nick the week of the concert I was going to for BOBW, and she had dyed her hair a day before that…
    Wow.. is pretty much all I can say.

  • renee

    did she really say all that crap about the break-up? sounds like she is really needy…

  • Taylor

    i can’t stand her one bit she needs to get over him.

  • carol

    i can’t belive she said this!
    ohh god!
    i love her…but the thinks that her do!

  • neutral

    nick probably broke up with her, bcus shes too much handle. thats just my opinion. but why does she bother to talk about the breakup, if she NEVER admitted to dating him???

  • http://---------- carlex

  • ilovejonas

  • ilovejonas

  • Jamie Spears Insider

    Wow…and this is important why? I can’t believe she is getting so many deals.

  • carol

    miley…why does you have to do this???

  • tellin it like it is

    I really want to get this issue that is so sad. I’ve never had a boyfriend, or been through a breakup, but I know what it feels like to only want to rebel and do everything that is the opposite of who you really are. I feel so bad for Miley, and I think this is showing that she is only human and that no matter how high she is, heartbreak and send her crashing down like anyone else.

  • gabriela

    i loveeee so much miley!!
    she’s the beesssttt!

  • carol


  • Martha

    ohhhmy godd,

    and DREAM ON!
    Nick DOESNT wanna marry you.
    k? =]

  • carol

    she said that’s a rebel!

  • LuckyL

    Lame publicity stunt trying to take away from Nick and Selena’s current relationship. She’s as lame as Jennifer Aniston.

  • Elisa01

    OMG, I want to see Nick’s reaction to this

  • LuckyL

    Despite all the airbrushing, she still looks below average lol

  • LuckyL

    Now look at the cun*t demonizing Nick as a control-freak in the interview. This bit** just doesn’t know when to stop.

  • LuckyL

    And WHEN was this trick’s hair black?

  • mistryse13

    i think nick and selena are soo much cuter!!!!

  • shir

    So they did date!
    It really doesn’t change things, but is nice to know.

    She is so emo!!! And she totally stole they hair dying thing from the Sex And the City movie!!! It was tragic when Carried dyed her hair and changed her lookj because she was depressed, but she’s like a 30 something woman in that movie (i think?) Miley is 15 so a part of me thinks her explanation is funny.

  • LuckyL

    No wonder Nick broke up with her. Now he’s dating a NATURAL jet haired girl lol, irony

  • vanessa


    what this girls won’t do for attention

  • 4564356

    horrible pic. her arms look very strange.

  • amanda

    nick’s a slimy bastard. thank god he moved on from miley to stupid selena. hes a two faced jerk! nick doesnt deserve someone as beautiful as miley anyways. cant wait for nick to break up with selena in a few months!

  • LuckyL

    Now look at dumb amanda above me making up sh** to demonize this Nick kid because she is a delusional Miley fan. Why are you adding so many fake details to this story amanda? Does it make your idol seem better now and not just a publicity whor*e?

  • Carol

    Miley and Nick were so perfect .-.

  • vanessa

    eugh i just hate her.

    if the bro’s don’t hate her aldready, they will now.

  • fra

    niley rules, nelena sucks

  • amanda

    oh please luckyL, you can shut up. (:
    obviously, nick liked those pictures miley sent him. hes just sitting back watching the media give shit to miley while he enjoys it. you obviously dont even look at both sides.

  • kimmy

    i can’t stand her. she’s only 15 and acts like 30

  • lalala
