The two pop stars began dating in October 2019, after Cyrus went through a divorce with ex-husband and actor Liam Hemsworth and temporarily dated reality TV star Kaitlynn Carter. They've been best friends for years, which the Australian singer-songwriter noted in an interview made their relationship more special than his previous ones.
"Any girlfriends I’ve had in the past has always been immediate romance and so it’s a different experience having been friends with somebody before and it developing naturally into something more," Simpson told the press at the Tiffany & Co. Men's Launch in LA on Oct. 11, when going to events was a normal thing.
But since cozying up together during a PDA-filled quarantine, the "Midnight Sky" singer completely transformed his look, from giving him a buzz cut to a full-fledged makeover. She even dressed him in drag while directing his "Captain's Dance With the Devil" music video that came out in May.
But Simpson flipped the spotlight onto Cyrus when she served as his lyrical and cover art muse for his dreamy acoustic ballad "Golden Thing." The sweet gesture came after he provided her with some much-needed TLC following her October surgery to remove her tonsils and again in November for her vocal chord surgery.
And like most Hollywood couples, they turned to TikTok in times of boredom (long before the ongoing outbreak), recording spontaneous dance videos to the tune of C+C Music Factory's "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)," Ashnikko and Yung Baby Tate's "Stupid" and more.
