Boyfriend? Fiance? Lover? Hubby-to-be? Love of her life? Not quite.

Miley Cyrus has revealed what she calls Liam Hemsworth these days – and, SPOILER ALERT! It’s not what you’d expect… but actually super-duper adorable.

On Wednesday (December 12), during the 26-year-old singer’s appearance at SiriusXM’s Howard Stern Show, she divulged what term she uses when referring to her long-time love. Here’s how it happened –

Miley began something she was going to say with this:

“So actually, Liam, I’ve never loved him more for this –“

She was then interrupted by Howard who asked:

“This is your boyfriend? Fiancé?”

And this is what Miley said in response:

“Yeah, kind of-ish. My partner, I call him my survival partner now.”


Survival partner. That’s what Miley calls Liam. It’s distinct, unique, and anything but ordinary – which, if you think about it, also perfectly sums up the free-spirited, passionate duo!

Miley went on to share that Liam thinks the term she uses is “not romantic.” But, she added, she herself has “learned that it is.” Miley and Liam have definitely gone through many, many ups and downs together, seeing each other through every challenge and always emerging stronger than ever.

Their relationship prevails. They prevail. And they do so together. Miley and Liam live, love, and survive together – And this was more sweetly apparent than ever when they lost their home during the Malibu Fires recently. Miley adorably gushed about how Liam was there for her – and for the animals in the area, whom he did everything to rescue from the fire.

She shared about her 28-year-old survival partner:

“That is why you pair up with someone, for survival, and he was so incredible. He got all the animals out in his truck. He put two pigs in crates, which, I can tell you, is so hard.”

And then followed that up by saucily disclosing just how she showed him how incredibly grateful she was for what he did:

“He got a lot of action for saving the animals. Yeah, he got a lot of action. We had to make sure he knew I was very, very grateful.”




Miley turned up the heat even more by sharing how she and Liam still stay close when work commitments keep them distanced from each other:

“That’s what FaceTime’s for. Cybersex.”

It’s getting hot in here, guys!
