Continuing her weeklong media blitz to hype her new hit "We Can't Stop," Miley Cyrus jetted from L.A. to New York this morning, where she appeared on Good Morning America to perform the song as well as "Fall Down," her duet with

This, after having just gotten over a case of laryngitis!

Sitting down with GMA anchor Amy Robach, the singer spilled on the status of her engagement to actor Liam Hemsworth and her family, which has gone through some ups and downs with her dad Billy Ray Cyrus' recent announcement that he was filing for divorce from her mom, Tish.

Noting the big rock on her finger, Robach wondered whether wedding bells were in Cyrus' future, especially since she was spotted without her ring in March, sparking rumors of a split.

But the 20-year-old crooner made it clear she and Liam are still very much together, replying bashfully, "I'm wearing a ring so…"

When asked about the behind-the-scenes drama involving her parents and the media's obsession with her personal life given that she's grown up in the public eye, Miley didn't address the matter head-on, but did praise those fans who've stuck by her.

"My whole thing is, haters are gonna hate, but haters are also going to click on your YouTube video just to watch it so I don't really care," she said. "You helped me break the record. Even if you were watching just to hate on me, and now I hold the record so I win."

Cyrus—who wore white short shorts and a black crop top—also revealed she was "really sick" with laryngitis and had to go on vocal rest.

"I didn't even know if I could make it," she said, adding that it's been "one of the most insane weeks of my life."

Talking about the success she's been having with "We Can't Stop," which has amassed 33 million hits and counting on YouTube since its release six days ago (it also broke a record on Vevo for the most views in a 24-hour period), Miley said the tune is what people need to hear right now.

"People need to hear something inspirational, and it's just about having a good time," she answered. "And I feel like everybody in my age group right now, we're just trying to have a good time."
