“I am not aware of her work, but I tend to not listen to mainstream pop music,” he told the Herald Sun.
However, the indie rocker commended Miley for her interpretation of his lyrics.
“She may be a big pop star but it would seem to me that she’s not a passive music listener,” Thompson continued.
“Hey, she likes the Pixies for one, and two, she seems to pay attention to the lyrics on a deeper level. So maybe I ought to listen to some Miley Cyrus records, maybe I have missed out on her.”
Although Miley is yet to reveal the deeper meaning behind the tatt— which was done by Los Angeles based celebrity tattoo artist Winter Stone— it seems as though the quote confirms that while she was nervous to call time on their 10-year relationship, she knew her heart was somewhere else.
Although Miley and Liam's families were "begging" the pair to reconsider their split, "The Hunger Games" actor filed for divorce last month. According to PEOPLE, he cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for their breakup. The publication also confirmed the pair signed a prenuptial agreement ahead of their marriage, so an easy divorce is said to be expected.
Of course, as Miley-fans will know, the "Wrecking Ball" singer has since moved on with Kaitlynn Carter – the ex-wife of Caitlyn Jenner’s son, Brody.
The loved-up pair have moved in together and have been flaunting their new relationship at every opportunity.
