Miley Cyrus appeared on Ellen Degeneres’ show to clear up some speculation about the engagement ring she received from Liam Hemsworth. She said she feels strange wearing it some of the time because the expensive rock doesn’t go with her less fancy collection of candy, plastic and kitsch.
“It’s very weird because this is, like, real jewelry and most of my jewelry is made out of like gummy bears and cotton candy and they don’t look that good together because they kind of mix up,” she said. “So sometimes I replace it with an actual unicorn or a Looney Tune. And he’s like, ‘What’s going on?’ And I’m like, ‘Well, this isn’t my aesthetic, but I’ll wear it ‘cause you love me.’”
Cyrus—who recently campaigned for Hillary Clinton in Virginia—clearly doesn’t take her ring (or herself) too seriously, unless it’s for an important cause.
“As someone who was openly supporting Bernie Sanders, I was kind of speaking to those people who now find themselves undecided, which I find ridiculous,” she told Ellen. “In life we don’t always get the choices that we want. We don’t always get what we want. You do with what you have, so these are your choices. It’s terrifying if someone besides Hillary Clinton – we shouldn’t even say the name – becomes president. I think she’s a total goddess and I just love her and I’m just excited to see her for the next four and maybe even eight years.”
