Miley Cyrus isn’t thinking about her recently terminated relationship with ex-fiance Liam Hemsworth. She’s all about the music, man.

“I think people spend more time actually thinking about [the breakup] than I really do. I just believe when a chapter is done you have to close it and start that new one. That’s kind of where I am right now,” she told Ellen Degeneres in an appearance on her show on Oct. 11. “I felt like I have so much to be thankful for at this time that my energy hasn’t really been focused on that.”

It’s hard to see when she’d even have the time, given how incredibly famous she is at the moment, unless she multitasked and did some twerk-crying. Still, she’s a lucky girl: Not many people get to win a breakup by abruptly becoming one of the biggest stars on the planet.

Miley has done so many high profile appearances this week that she hasn’t even had time to get all the way dressed, and it’s affecting her health.

She had a complaint as a visitor to “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon”: The studio was way too cold. “I’m catching pneumonia in your studio right now,” she told Jimmy.

“It’s very cold,” Fallon acknowledged, “but you have to wear clothes.”

Indeed, Miley made her “Late Night” appearance in approximately 1/3 of a tuxedo. This did not include the bottom third, obvs. Mainly, she just wore a billowy white shirt, with a bra-ish cummerbund-ish thingy.
