Miley Cyrus is no shy wallflower, so when it comes to her music, the singer isn't afraid to get personal and keep things real. The first single off the just-released Younger Now is proof of her willingness to open up to the world – "Malibu" was clearly a nod to her blissful rekindled romance with Liam Hemsworth. But that's definitely not the only song on the album that gives us some insight into Miley's love life. Is "She's Not Him" about Stella Maxwell? Naturally, fans are speculating that the heartfelt track references Cyrus' supposed former flame. So, what is the meaning of "She's Not Him"? Let's find out.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth's courtship spans the course of over 6 years, but there was a period when the re-engaged pair weren't coupled up. Miley and the Aussie actor heated up when the met on the set of The Last Song in 2009 and by 2010 they went public. Despite some on-again, of-again-ness, the famous duo were engaged by 2012. A little over a year later, the engagement was called off. Cut to 2016 and Liam and Miley are back on, and she's wearing her ring again. Still with us? Now they're officially reconciled and if the song "Malibu" is any indication, they're stronger than ever. But there was a time B.L. (Before Liam) during those off years, in which Miley reportedly had a thing with model Stella Maxwell.

"She's not him, no matter what you say, no matter what you do, I just can't fall in love with you," Miley croons in the soulful "She's Not Him," the tenth track on Younger Now. It appears to be a heartbreaking declaration of a person torn between two relationships, not able to get over one love while trying to make it work with another. Miley's rumored fling with Victoria's Secret angel Stella Maxwell comes to mind if this does happen to be an autobiographical admission of her past feelings. Rumblings of their relationship swirled when they were spotted making out back in 2015. In the summer of that same year, Miley and Stella made their relationship what some might look at as "Instagram official" when they posted a slew of photos of them together over the course of a few months. To be clear, they never explicitly confirmed anything romantic, but of course, Miley's intimate new melodies are putting a retroactive spotlight on their relationship, whatever it was.

Read the full lyrics to "She's Not Him" here:

I want to start by saying thank you I'm gonna miss ya, hunny You gave me things, you can't buy back with money You changed my life You've been my world There's no other girl that looks like ya, darling Those eyes, that tongue, those teeth, that face, that body Even though we've gone to outer space Still no way you can take his place

You're not him She's not him No matter what you say No matter what you do I just can't fall in love with you Cuz you're not him Yeah, she's not him

And why, why can't I love you, baby? Like I wanna love you, baby I'm sorry And maybe it's beyond my control Some sort of chemical reaction Making it impossible to let him go

You're not him She's not him No matter what you say No matter what you do I just can't fall in love with you Cuz you're not him Yeah, she's not him

And you don't deserve all the bullsh*t I've put you through You, you deserve a heart much bigger than one that's torn in two

You're not him She's not him Every time you walk through my door I swear to God you're more beautiful than before, but you're not him No matter what you say No matter what you do I just can't fall in love with you You're not him Yeah, she's not him

Here's what fans are saying:

As we all know, Miley is back in the arms of Liam and they're on their way to the altar. Stella is currently dating actress Kristen Stewart. We wish them both the best with their respective relationships. Whether "She's Not Him" is about Stella or not, it's a beautiful song full of raw emotion and impassioned tenderness. We'll be listening on repeat.
