miley cyrus on the cover of cosmopolitanUsed to be that stars were all about letting us in on every last detail leading up to their wedding day. Now, it seems like the PR trick is to make the public feel like we missed the Big Day entirely. At least as far as Miley Cyrus is concerned. In her recent interview with Cosmopolitan, she flat-out said she's "married" and called fiance (???) Liam Hemsworth her "hubby." My gay best friend and I used to do that all the time in college, but I'm guessing what Miley's doing is a little different than that, eh?

She's either trying to make the big announcement that the couple already had a super-secret, uber-quiet wedding in an equally nonchalant way OR she's full of it. I vote the latter. But let's analyze, shall we ...

At one point Miley shared ...

I’m happy I don’t have to date anymore though. All my friends are guys, so I hear the sh*t guys say about dating. One guy called me and said, ‘Miley, I don’t know what to do — this girl won’t leave my house. It’s 6:00 and I have a blind date at 6:30.’ And I was like, ‘I’m so happy I’m married, because you guys are cruel!’ It’s hard to find a good guy, and all girl know that guys don’t think with their brains.

And then anecdote-filled Miley goes onto gush about how sexy she thinks Liam is:

The other day, I turned on the pool heater and it was steaming, and he walked outside and took off his clothes and jumped in the pool. I was like, ‘I’m gonna faint – the hottest guy of my life is in a steaming pool. This looks like a Playgirl shoot.’ So I took a photo and made it the background on my phone. My best friend grabbed my phone and was like, ‘Who’s that? He is so hot!’ That’s my hubby!

Oookay. Now, while there may be a million conspiracy theories out there and fans convinced this means Miley and Liam already said "I do," I'm not buying it. As much as she seems to be growing up slowly but surely, the ex-Disney star still hearts the spotlight, and more than that, she loves to screw with the press and all of us!

Furthermore, she has said on more than one occasion that she "doesn't need a piece of paper" and wants to have a "long engagement." And even if she said she doesn't care about a big wedding, I'm calling her bluff. You don't go into the entertainment biz and then sneak off to City Hall to get hitched. Not to mention that both she and Liam have a lot of family members who are probably looking forward to their big festive wedding day ... And you know someone's looking forward to selling photos of it to one of the celeb weeklies!

That said, what this boils down to is Miley toying with us, giggling about how easily she can manipulate the press with a choice word or two. And yeah, maybe also the fact that she really does care so little about that "piece of paper" that she already considers herself a married woman.

What do you think: Is Miley already married, does she just see herself as married, or is she just playing with the press?
