After the Woolsey fire in Malibu, California, destroyed nearly 670 structures—many of which were celebrity homes—Miley Cyrus revealed she had a “strange premonition” that something like that would happen. Miley, sadly, was one of the celebrities who lost her home in the massive fire.
While speaking with Ryan Seacrest during his radio show about her just-released song, “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart,” Miley explained these lyrics:”This burning house / There’s nothing left / It’s smoking and we both know it.”
We’ve been working for the past year and a half on the next record…So I didn’t know the best way to come out of this blackout period, but it’s actually really crazy because I wrote this song with Mark [Ronson] in May before we actually lost our Malibu house…It was like this strange premonition so the timing just worked out.

It’s been a heartbreaking few days. This is what’s left of my house. Love. Many people in Malibu and surrounding areas in California have lost their homes also and my heart goes out to everyone who was affected by these fires. I spent the day in Malibu yesterday and it was amazing to see the community pulling together to help each other out in any way they can. Malibu is a strong community and this event is only going to make it stronger. Thankful for the all the great local guys that helped keep smaller fires out around my property. I love u guys. I love you Malibu. Thank you to all the hero firefighters around California. It’s going to be a journey to rebuild. Stay strong all. To help/donate visit @malibufoundation and @happyhippiefdn
Even though Miley had a weird feeling about the fires, please don’t go blaming her for not warning anyone or stopping it because that’s just unfair.
And while she lost the home she shared with Liam Hemsworth in the devastating fires, Miley said she’s choosing “post-traumatic growth” instead of post-traumatic stress. “I had a choice of post-traumatic stress or post-traumatic growth and I think you always feel you don’t have control especially when something happens that’s a natural disaster because there’s no beating nature,” she elaborated.
After the fire, Miley and Liam pledged to be supportive neighbours and to donate $500,000 to the Malibu Foundation to help rebuild the community.
