The Climb singer Miley Cyrus has said that it feels "right" to be engaged to Hunger Games actor Liam Hemsworth.

The 20-year-old Party in the U.S.A star has insisted her relationship with Hemsworth is not on the rocks, despite claims that her 23-year-old beau cheated with actress January Jones, at an Oscar after-party back in February.

Speaking to Elle about her engagement to Hemsworth, Miley said: "We have a house together and dogs. It just seems right to be wearing this ring and to be committed."

Miley also revealed that she has made a pact with Liam, to keep their relationship private, adding: "We keep our relationship low-key and don’t talk about it any more. We were too nice to the world and gave them too much insight – into my life and my puppies and my house – and I just don’t feel they get that privilege any more."

"Like on my Twitter, I’m much more... not conservative, but you don’t see a picture of my dogs. You don’t get that personal stuff any more."

Miley and Hemsworth got engaged last summer after falling for each other on the set of rom-com The Last Song in 2010.
