Miley Cyrus graces Marie Claire's September 2012 cover. The 19-year-old singer sits down for an interview with the magazine and dishes on life, love and her handsome fiancé, Liam Hemsworth. Check out these snippets from her cover story!

Miley Cyrus reveals an all grown up look on Marie Claire's September 2012 cover. In fact, the 19-year-old singer, who seems to find herself in the best moment of her life, has a lot going on lately. With a new album in sight and her engagement to Australian heartthrob Liam Hemsworth, Miley says bye-bye to Hannah Montana and enters into a new stage. Talking to the magazine, Cyrus dishes on life, love, Liam, and her style.
"To be honest, my style is actually not really changed that much. I still like the same things. I think, maybe I've gotten a little bit more confident with my style. I think that's being comfortable with who you are and sexuality. And I'm also comfortable with that."

Speaking about her worst personality trait, the young star confesses that, "I get a little bit obsessed when I can't let things go. That would probably be my one." What about her best quality? Miley says that, "My best is that I can usually make someone laugh if they are having a bad day. I always look for a person like that in my life."

Miley has been dating Liam Hemsworth for three years now and the two are ready to tie the knot. Too young? Not at all, she says. "Life is too short not to be with the person you want to be with. I don’t really care about the wedding or the piece of paper as much as I do the promise we’ve made to each other. And we want to have a long engagement," Miley told Marie Claire.
"Liam and I have a really good relationship . . . neither of us is superjealous. We know each other and would never do anything to hurt each other."

On her engagement ring, Miley says that, "I had no input. We’d been kind of talking about [getting engaged], and I saw something like it online at one point and thought it was really pretty, but I usually wear rose gold. I just love that it’s old and has a story. And I’m happy because it doesn’t look like anything else I wear."

The pair live together in the 8,000-square-foot Mediterranean-style villa Cyrus' family once lived in. Miley has four rescue dogs and a bulldog named Ziggy. Ziggy ate two Jacquie Aiche bracelets right off her wrist. "She's a stubborn little bi**h, that one," Cyrus says. "She doesn't listen to me. She's in love with Liam. She loves me when he's gone, but she totally ate my diamonds on purpose. She was pooping them out all morning!"
