Are you surprised?

Six months before Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth called off their engagement, the 20-year-old artist already wanted to end ties with the 23-year-old actor.

The November cover girl of Canada's FASHION magazine shares the backstory of her upcoming track, Drive, which she wrote in February during a difficult time with Hemsworth. "I wrote it while I was working on Valentine's Day - emotionally it was such a hard time," says the singer.

The song, she reveals, is "about needing to leave someone but not really wanting to completely cut yourself off from the relationship. It's a time when you want to leave but you can't. It's also about moving on."

This is the second known track off Cyrus' pending album, BANGERZ, that alludes to heartbreak. 

In Cyrus' most recent single, Wrecking Ball, the artist sings, "All I wanted was to break your walls. All you ever did was wreck me." Even more shocking to fans of the pop figure was the Terry Richardson-shot music video that included Cyrus- naked, crying and swinging on a pendulum.

The song continues to have deeply-rooted emotional significance: Hemsworth was spotted kissing Eiza Gonzalez one day after officially breaking off his engagement from Cyrus. Several days later, the singer cried during her performance of "Wrecking Ball" at the iHeart Radio Music Festival.

The other big Cyrus controversy addressed in the interview was her infamous performance at the 2013 VMAs. The spread was shot ten days after the former Disney star bent, twerked and rubbed up against Robin Thicke on stage before millions of viewers across America, so naturally she had to address it.

"MTV edited so much," she says. "They cut almost everything I did. I’m proud of that performance. I feel like music is really stale right now. I could have guessed what a lot of artists would have done that night. The reaction to what I did has been insane. I think it was a breath of fresh air!"

One to shrug off the public's general opinion, the creative force says, "For the people that don’t get it, you weren’t meant to."

In June, Cyrus told Billboard, "I want my record to be the biggest record in the world, and I've given everything to get here, even down to friends and family and relationships- I've just put this music first."

BANGERZ drops on Oct. 8. The issue hits stands Oct. 7.
