JB Lacroix/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) — Miley Cyrus is just 19, but she’s engaged to Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth, her 22-year-old Australian fiance.  And the star says that anyone who criticizes the couple for rushing into marriage at too young an age doesn’t know what they’re talking about.

In a behind-the-scenes video Cyrus shot for Marie Claire magazine while posing for the publication’s September cover, the singer and actress says, “We’ve been together a long time, and I just know this is what I want for my life.” 

She adds, “A lot of people, I think, say, ‘I can’t believe they’re getting married, they’re so young,’ but life is too short to not spend every minute with the person with makes you happiest.”

Cyrus tells the magazine that when Hemsworth proposed, it was “a complete surprise” and says that no one, not even her parents, knew that it was coming.  Cyrus also says she had “no input” on her 3.5-carat yellow-gold engagement ring, but she loves it. 

“I usually wear rose gold,” she says, “and I’m happy because it doesn’t look like anything else I wear.”
