Miley Cyrus released her 7th studio album on Friday, "Plastic Hearts."
After its release, fans speculated that song including, "WTF Do I Know?", "Angels Like You," "Hate Me," and "Never Be Me," were directed at her ex Liam Hemsworth.
Cyrus and Hemsworth dated on and off again for nearly a decade before marrying in December 2018. They split eight months later.
From the moment Cyrus' album began, fans were quick to think opening track "WTF Do I Know?" takes digs at Hemsworth because of the following lyrics:
Maybe getting married just to cause a distraction.
Here to tell you something that you don't know
Am I wrong that I moved on and I
And I don't even miss you?
You want an apology?
Not from me
Had to leave you in your own misery.

Some fans noticed a parallel between lyrics in "WTF Do I Know?" and Cyrus's 2017 track "I Would Die For You."
In the latter, Cyrus sings "You are everything to me. And I, I would die for you," lyrics which many believed were about Hemsworth when the two were together.
In "WTF Do I Know," Cyrus sings: "Thought that it'd be you until I die. But I let go."

Fans believe Cyrus makes digs on a few other tracks as well, including "Angels Like You" and "Never Be Me."
On "Angels Like You," Cyrus sings a somber melody that appears to be about a wedding and being unhappy because she knew the person she was with wasn't right for her. She sings about being a free spirit who couldn't be what someone needed her to be.
"I know that you're wrong for me," Cyrus sings. "Gonna wish we never met on the day I leave. I brought you down to your knees. 'Cause they say that misery loves company."

"Never Be Me" is another beautiful ballad where Cyrus sings about how she can't be tamed, even if she tries:
If you're looking for stable that'll never be me
If you're looking for faithful that'll never be me.
If you're looking for someone to be all that you need.
That'll never be me.
(Hard as I try).

In "Hate Me," Cyrus ponders if a person who may still be upset with her would miss her and not hate her if she died:
I wonder what would happen if I die
I hope all of my friends get drunk and high
Would it be too hard to say goodbye?
I hope that it's enough to make you cry.
Maybe that day you won't hate me.
Go ahead, you can say that I've changed.
Just say it to my face.
