The “Wrecking Ball” singer opened up about the couple’s split during an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

“I think people spend more time actually thinking about it than I really do,” the 20-year-old said. “I just believe when a chapter is done you have to close it and start that new one. That’s kind of where I am right now. I felt like I have so much to be thankful for at this time that my energy hasn’t really been focused on that.”

Cyrus also told host Ellen Degeneres that her new album, “Bangerz,” draws from her relationship with Hemsworth, whom she began dating in 2009 and got engaged to last year.

“The whole album is a story of that, and I think it says that with starting with ‘Adore You’ and ending with ‘Someone Else,’ I feel like you can really find like this arc of growth,” she said, adding that she didn’t realize how personal the album was until it was completed. “I think I knew more intuitively where my life was going then I actually thought I did at the time.”

Cyrus also revealed she hasn’t been in contact with “The Hunger Games” star since their split.
