Miley Cyrus thinks her relationship with Liam Hemsworth is progressing naturally and claims the pair have decided not to be as open about their romance in public.
The 'Party in the U.S.A.' singer claims her relationship with the 'Hunger Games' actor is progressing naturally, and the pair - who were rumoured to be experiencing problems recently - have simply made a conscious decision not to be so open about their personal life to the media.
Speaking in the new edition of Britain's ELLE magazine, Miley said: ''We have a house together and dogs. It just seems right to be wearing this ring and to be committed. But we keep our relationship low-key and don't talk about it any more.
''We were too nice to the world and gave them too much insight - into my life and my puppies and my house - and I just don't feel they get that privilege any more.
''Like on my Twitter, I'm much more ... not conservative, but you don't see a picture of my dogs. You don't get that personal stuff any more.''
Miley, 20, and Liam, 23 got engaged last summer after falling for each other on the set of rom-com 'The Last Song' in 2010, but Liam has reportedly got ''cold feet'' and the wedding has been postponed, amid speculation he was fed up with Miley's constant partying.
The feisty singer made headlines last year by ditching her good girl image and shaving her hair, but Miley feels her revamped look is very empowering since she's not flashing so much flesh.
She said: ''A star is someone who doesn't have to take her clothes off to be sexy because you naturally have star power.
''Sex does sell, but you have to find a way that's not just showing your t**s. I don't want to be a glorified model. They just walk on stage and it's all about their clothes - or lack of clothes.''
