Miley Cyrus is taking a vow of silence after undergoing vocal cord surgery. The popstar with the massive pipes has been forced to take a step back not only from performing and recording new music, but also from talking after undergoing necessary surgery to repair her vocal cords on Saturday. Thankfully, she won’t be alone during her recovery with People reporting that new boyfriend Cody Simpson has been by her side.
Cyrus was first hospitalized back in October for tonsillitis and according to People, it was then that doctors discovered a more serious issue with her vocal cords. Cyrus was reportedly told that she would require a more extensive surgery before the end of 2019, with the recovery process including weeks of silence following the surgery. Forced to put recording new music on hold indefinitely, Cyrus underwent the surgery last week and was discharged on Saturday to recover at home.

Cyrus had already begun vocal rest before the surgery, posting a picture on her IG stories showing the singer working out with the caption “On vocal rest not body.” A source close to Cyrus told People that the singer has known for several weeks that she would require surgery and that the surgery went well. As for who is helping to nurse Cyrus back to health, that answer shouldn’t come as a shock for anyone who follows Cyrus on social media. “Cody is by her side. They are still doing well,” said the source. “Miley seems very happy. Cody will make sure she isn’t bored while she recovers.”

Things with Cyrus and Simpson have progressed quickly since the pair were first spotted kissing at the beginning of October. Following Cyrus’ breakup with girlfriend Kaitlynn Carter, it appeared that the singer had moved on with her longtime friend, with Cyrus and Simpson igniting romance rumours before confirming their relationship on social media.
Cyrus was quick to hit back at critics who accused the celebrity of moving on too fast following her separation from husband Liam Hemsworth and her girlfriend Kaitlynn Carter, explaining that she’s still new to dating and figuring things out. Calling out the media for slut-shaming women for behaviour that men are often praised for, Cyrus tweeted that she refuses to hide at home and instead wants to share public activities with her significant other. “I am trying to make light and like always make fun of myself and the public’s perception of me,” writes Cyrus. “Get used to me dating, this is here I’m at!”
