Miley Cyrus — who split from beau Justin Gaston earlier this week — says it’s nice to be back on friendly terms with ex Nick Jonas.

“He’s my best friend, and we still hang out all the time,” she said Friday on 107.5 The River‘s Woody and Jim morning show in Nashville. “We’ve definitely reconnected. We don’t know what’s going to happen in the future, but right now we’re just kind of kicking it and hanging out as much as we can.”

Cyrus split with Jonas at the end of 2007. She told Seventeen last year that she “bawled for a month straight” and dyed her hair black after calling it quits.

The two — who sing a duet on the Jonas Brothers’ new song, “Before The Storm — have since patched things up.

“We both just kind of saw each other and kind of decided this whole thing is kind of stupid,” Cyrus said. “We were all over the separation.”

“I’m really happy to be back in their lives,” she went on. “And our families are super happy we’re hanging out again.”

Jonas even took a trip to Georgia to visit Cyrus, who is now shooting the drama The Last Song. On Wednesday, they went jet-skiing near Tybee Island.

“No comment,” she said when asked about the outing, though she did admit, “I am a jet ski demon!”

As for her new nose piercing, she said she is not ready to get “slammed” for the body art.

“I’ll let people think what they will,” she said. “I hope no one is upset at me for doing it. I think it’s lame for it to be such a big deal because … it’s just temporary. You can take it out.”

What prompted the piercing?

“I am a huge Kelly Clarkson fan,” she said. “And I loved when she had her nose pierced.”

Miley Cyrus & Justin Gaston Call It Quits

LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Miley Cyrus has reportedly broken up with boyfriend Justin Gaston, according to E! News. The 16-year-old pop star and the 20-year-old model had been dating for nearly nine months.

The “Hannah Montana” star reportedly called things off last week, as she was preparing to head to Georgia to film her new movie, “The Last Song.” A source also confirmed the split to Us Weekly.

“They have been having trouble for a while,” the source told Us Weekly. “It’s been hard for a long time since Miley has been working so much and traveling a lot.” However, distance may not have been the only factor behind the breakup. Miley has recently been spending time with her ex, Nick Jonas, which a friend of Justin’s said put some strain on the relationship.

“She obviously has been hanging out with Nick again a lot and Justin was cool with it at first – as long as it was just a cool friendly thing,” a friend of Justin’s told E! News. “She didn’t cheat, but I guess Nick was trying to get her back the whole time.” Over the weekend, Miley hit up her Twitter page to Tweet about spending time with Nick. “i’m in a dark theater ‘writing’ a song with nick j who is rockin a faded egg plant [sic] shirt!” she wrote. In a new interview with teen magazine Twist, Nick confirmed a duet with his ex-girlfriend on the Jonas Brother’s new song, “Before The Storm.”

“There’s two versions of the song basically, one that was written just for our record that we sang originally. And then I played it for Miley and we realized that if we just changed the lyrics a bit, we could make it more of our story, kind of share that side of us, and it could be great. So, we did,” Nick told Twist. “She came in and she and I sat down at the piano and just worked on lyrics a bit, tweaked it up, and it turned out great!”

Since leaving for Georgia, Miley has posted several Tweets referencing the distance between herself and her loved ones. “why does saying good-bye hurt so much?” she wrote on June 7.

“I’m just to [sic] far from where you are, i wanna go home.”

Jonas’ Odd Beyonce Dance

Totally busted!

Totally busted!

Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” video has been the subject of many viral-video parodies, most notably in a Saturday Night Live skit starring Justin Timberlake, Andy Samburg, and Beyonce herself. But the latest attempt at the diva’s unitarded dance fad may be the strangest yet, and it is–to quote the always quotable Jonas Brothers–totally burnin’ up on the Interweb.

This new lampoon comes courtesy of Joe Jonas–yes, that Joe Jonas, the middle and arguably cutest Jonas Brother–and yes, he is wearing high heels AND a onesie even more revealing than Beyonce’s one-sleeved leotard:

Apparently Joe lost some kind of bet here, or he’s just never one to pass up a dare from the brotherly trio’s fans. Either that, or this famously purity-ring-wearing pop star has taken Beyonce’s “Put A Ring On It” line way too much to heart.

WATCH THE VIDEO HERE!

But whatever the reason for Joe’s bizarre Beyonce tribute, we do have to say this is kind of awesome. Awesomely weird, but awesome nonetheless. And even the JoBros’ purity-ring-eschewing nemesis, Russell Brand, must be impressed with how nicely Joe fills out a catsuit.
