Miley Cyrus took to Instagram to celebrate the anniversary of her hit single 7 Things, which as you know, was about Nick Jonas.
“13 years of 7 things,” Miley captioned a series of images and videos.
One photo was a meme that said Olivia Rodrigo’s Good 4 U is the “2021 Disney equivalent” of Miley Cyrus’s 7 Things. Another was a screenshot of her holding a photo of her Nick, his face covered with a scribbled Post-it. She even tagged Nick on the photo.
Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas dated back in 2007, and her song 7 Things came after their break-up
In her anniversary post, Miley Cyrus even shared an excerpt — about the song — from her 2009 memoir, Miles to Go.
“I was angry when I wrote ‘7 Things.’ I wanted to punish him, to get back at home for hurting me,” she wrote about Nick at the time. “It starts with a list of what I ‘hate.’”
“But I’m not a hater. My heart knew from the start that it was going to turn into a love song. Why does he get a love song? Because I don’t hate him. I won’t let myself hate anybody.”
“It’s a song about how I should hate him, but I don’t, and I don’t know why,” she said in her book. “It’s about forgiving, not forgetting.”
Miley wrote that it was “hard to imagine” that her and Nick’s love story was over. “But you know, at least I’m getting some good songs out if it,” she added.
The songstress didn’t explicitly mention Jonas in her book — and referred to him as “Prince Charming”.
Nick Jonas and Miley Cyrus started dating in 2006 when they were just teens, and called it quits in 2007.
Dating Miley changed things for Nick, as his brother Kevin Jonas said in their documentary Chasing Happiness. “We got to be on the Hannah Montana episode on the Disney Channel. That changed girls for Nick forever. When he met Miley, I think that kid’s head exploded,” he said.
Meanwhile, it became clear in 2018 that Nick Jonas was aware of the fact that 7 Things was about him.
“I’ve never directly heard that from Miley, but she does wear a dog tag [in the music video] that I gave her when I was 14. I was actually kind of flattered to be honest because it’s there forever and I know it’s about me,” he said on BBC Radio 1 in 2018.
