Miley Cyrus' makeout session with Victoria's Secret model Stella Maxwell got a lot of attention earlier this week ... which was clearly what they wanted.
They obviously strive to be seen and talked about, but was this just for the sake of flaunting their hot romance, or viral marketing for their new video?!
Sexy pics of Miley Cyrus and Stella Maxwell making out were snapped on a break from the set of a music video for Mike Will's song, "Drinks On Us."
Miley fans remember her dating Mike Will - also known as Mike Will Made It - in 2013 and 2014 ... or at least hanging out with him here and there.
In any case, Miley, Stella, Mike Will, Future, French Montana and Rae Sremmurd are all in the video, so seeing the girls making out on and off set?
We're not saying it's staged to hype up the video, but we can't say it isn't. Of course, Miley reportedly started dating Stella weeks prior to this.
Ever since she and Patrick Schwarzenegger broke it off, they've been seen together quite often, and undoubtedly looking like a couple at times.
Stella recently attended a Miley concert and posted a video of herself singing along to Miley's NSFW song lyrics, so these two are into each other.
The only question is whether it's platonic or more than that, and given that Maxwell has a history with male celebs AND a Victoria's Secret model?
We have absolutely no idea.
Our guess is there's a gray area and some very blurred lines involved here when it comes to the friend zone and what's real, vs. what's for show.
Either way ... HOT!!!!
