We already got a peek at Miley Cyrus' gorgeous Elle UK cover, and now the magazine has released a few more photos from her sexy shoot, along with a few quotes from her interview.

Miley has been seen with and without her diamond engagement ring over the last few months, and despite various reports that she's split from fiance Liam Hemsworth and that the wedding is off, Miley insists that everything is ok.
