"I need to treat my music like a relationship – give it my time and all the attention it deserves – and that's my main love right now. This is the best time of my life. I'm not going to look back on it and be like, 'I wish I hadn't been dwelling over a breakup,' you know? Because that's not what God wants my life to be about right now. God wants my life to be about being successful and being happy and blessing other people and being blessed," the 21-year-old Cyrus said.
