The song stripped was the first single from her album Younger Now and the video showed her frolicking around various scenic spots in the upscale beach town.
“Today is Malibu’s 4th anniversary. A song about a place and a person that I loved a lot at the time, ”she began her legend.
“This love has been returned beyond what I could describe here with freedom and escape. I lost this house along with many others in 2018. Here is a video of me writing it in my home studio.

The couple started dating in 2009 after meeting on the set of The Last Song and he finally proposed in 2012, before breaking up in 2013. The couple reconciled in 2015 before getting married in 2018.
She and The Hunger Games actor, 31, lost their home in Malibu shortly before getting married to the Woolsey fires that destroyed more than 1,600 homes, including that of Gerard Butler, Robin Thicke and the former real Beverly Hills housewife Camille Grammer.
At the time, Liam had called it “a heartbreaking few days”, sharing a photo of the remains of their house with a sign signed “Love,” ironically enough.
And Miley shared on Twitter that although she was devastated by the loss, she was “one of the lucky ones,” while calling Liam “the love of her life.”

“I am one of the lucky ones. My animals and LOVE OF MY LIFE have been doing it safely and that’s all that matters right now. My house is no longer standing, but the memories shared with family and friends remain strong, ”she wrote before thanking the rescuers.
After the couple split, she confessed to Rolling Stone in December 2020 that the fire actually prompted the two to marry, in what she called “one last attempt to save me.”
“In a way, it did what I couldn’t do for myself. It took me away from what no longer served its purpose. And as you drown, you reach that lifeline and you want to save yourself. I think that’s really what marriage has been to me. One last attempt to save me, ”she shared.

And she went on to say that in the years after the relationship ended, she gained a “healthy perspective” on life and love.
“I’ve learned a lot about what I can and can’t be for someone else and what I can and can’t accept for myself,” she said.
Cyrus – who performed on Saturday Night Live over the weekend – has maintained a series of relationships with both men and women, including Brody Jenner’s ex-wife Kaitlynn Carter and Cody Simpson.
