Miley Cyrus' Week in Review: Peace Out, Liam Hemsworth! Hello, Continued Chart-Topping Success

Miley Cyrus' life never has a dull moment.

This past week, however, was an especially big one for HRH Queen of Twerk. Everybody—from Cher to Britney Spears to Robin Thicke's wife to the model in the "Blurred Lines" video—had something to say about the 20-year-old star.

There was also, of course, a life-changing breakup announcement that kicked everything off. (Yes, that one.) Fortunately, Miley's one strong, kickass woman, because it takes a lot not to crumble—or at least go on an epic Twitter rant—given recent events.

Let's rehash.

Monday, Sept. 16: A day that will live in infamy… Miley's rep confirmed to E! News that she and Liam were no longer engaged. Sources said the split was "Miley's decision, after coming to grips with Liam being what she believed was less than faithful to her."

Hours after this news broke, Liam was spotted passionately kissing Eiza González outside of a Beverly Hills apartment. Eiza was also identified as being the same woman the Hunger Games hunk was cozying up to just days before at a Las Vegas nightclub.

Tuesday, Sept. 17: Miley took the high road, and while she didn't directly address anything relationship-related on Twitter, she did post a cryptic, emoji-filled message showing a man's head, a bomb, a globe and a red heart. Decode as you will.

Wednesday, Sept. 18:  "Wrecking Ball" became Miley's first ever Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 song! Her 2009 hit "Party in the U.S.A." and first Bangerz single "We Can't Stop" only made it to No. 2, so this was certainly worthy of a celebration.

Thursday, Sept. 19: Miley was "doing good," a source told E! News, noting that she was lying low and spending time with her family. Billy Ray Cyrus dropped by Piers Morgan Tonight to address the controversy surrounding his little girl. "Miley harnessed into something very special. She's just Miley. She's an artist, she's real. I think that's what's happened over the years," he said. "Miley has been reinventing her sound. She's evolving as an artist herself. I think that it's all of what everyone is calling controversy now. That's still my Miley."

But it wasn't a perfect day.  Lorde's "Royals" knocked Miley from her No. 1 iTunes spot, althogh but the "Wrecking Ball" songstress conceded graciously, tweeting, "your music is awesome."

Oh, and Liam's Monday makeout sesh partner Eiza faced the media at a Mexico City press conference for Los Croods. When asked about her new romance, she told reporters, "I have nothing to say about that subject."

Friday, Sept. 20: Rumors ran amok that Miley had already moved on from Liam to music producer Mike WiLL Made It. A source told E! News, however, the twosome are not dating.

And now? Ms. Cyrus is expected to perform at the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas this weekend.

Little piece of advice? Twerk your heart out and just keep being Miley!
