While speculation of the references to Hemsworth isn’t entirely surprising following the pair’s high-profile split, it's important to remember the purpose of the song was to promote film 'Charlie's Angels'. Surely it’s understandable why the word ‘angel’ is used in the track?
Miley Cyrus might have already moved on with Kaitlynn Carter, but that isn't stopping fans thinking the singer is taking a subtle dig at ex-husband Liam Hemsworth in her latest song and music video.

The 26-year-old singer released her highly-anticipated single 'Don't Call Me Angel' with fellow musicians Ariana Grande and Lana Del Rey. In the video, which accompanies the new Charlie's Angels film reboot, shows the trio set as modern-day 'Angels, with Cyrus seen dancing in front of a male model in a boxing ring.
It's not just the model's incredible likeness to her former Aussie beau, but the lyrics that have fans speculating that the singer shaded Hemsworth.
Cyrus’ fans have pointed out that the lyrics in the single reference the nickname ‘angel’ that the Hunger Games actress used to refer to his ex-wife several times over the years on social media. ‘Don't call me angel when I'm a mess / Don't call me angel when I get undressed,’ lines from the lyrics read.
Hemsworth's nickname for Cyrus has been 'angel' for years. Which Twitter fans were more than happy to provide receipts for.
