During the event, the 22-year-old Australian singer told reporters that the development of his romantic relationship with Cyrus, 26, is unlike any other he’s experienced in the past.
“The reason why it hasn’t been a really crazy sudden thing is just because we’ve been friends for so long,” Simpson told reporters, according to People. He added that the two “found each other again in a space where we’re both not partying, working real hard, and it just keeps things healthy and it’s good.”
“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 said.
The budding romance follows Cyrus’ recent divorce from husband Liam Hemsworth. In early October, the songstress took to Instagram to call Simpson her “BF” after the two were spotted on a date together.
Simpson also revealed that he’s planning to release a song he wrote for Cyrus while the songstress was in the hospital recovering from tonsillitis. The tune is scheduled for release next week, he told People.
“I wrote her a song this week that she’s pretty much forcing me to put out,” the crooner said “She was like, ‘If you don’t put this sh– out, I’m putting it out on your behalf for you. I’m getting your Spotify login and doing this sh– myself.’”
Tentatively titled “Golden Thing,” the acoustic guitar melody features romantic lyrics like, “Deep blue jeans, movie screens, it’s a golden thing she’s got,” and “I shouted the words in the first daylight and a chorus of words burst into sight/Now I know that I’m hers, for whatever it’s worth, by the rule that’s in the sky.”
