"7 Things" is a song by Miley Cyrus which was produced by John Fields (Switchfoot, The Jonas Brothers) and was written by Cyrus with Antonina Armato and Tim James. The threesome also wrote together "See You Again" for the Hannah Montana 2 soundtrack album. Additionally, Armato has writing credits for two Billboard Hot 100 singles, Brenda K Starr's "I Still Believe" (1988) and Glenn Medeiros and Bobby Brown's duet "She Ain't Worth It" (1990). Tim James has previously worked with Cyrus on the Hannah Montana albums, as well as with Aly & AJ and Vanessa Hudgens.

On this song, Cyrus has a go at her ex, who evidently has hurt her really badly and who won't provide a "sincere apology." After listing 7 things she dislikes about her ex, at the end she lists what she likes about him.

Miley Cyrus told Ryan Seacrest about this song on his KIIS-FM radio show. She revealed that this angry number was something that just poured out her during a rare moment alone on her tour bus. She said: "The word 'hate' could describe how angry I am. [It goes] through all the different stages of what's been going on the past couple years. It was like a little therapy moment for me."

Miley was then asked if she was concerned about possibly offending a former boyfriend. Disney's Hannah Montana star replied: "I want them to be upset. That was my point. I was a little worried, but I'm excited that I just did it."

The song's music video was directed by Brett Ratner (Madonna, Mariah Carey, Diddy, Jessica Simpson). In an interview with MTV News when he recalled discussing the video with Miley during a visit to her home, Ratner inadvertently gave a big clue that this song is about Miley's former boyfriend Nick Jonas. He said: "She had me come out to her house. She started showing me all of her personal items from under her bed that her ex-boyfriend gave her. So she pulled out his dirty socks and a bunch of photographs. The necklace she's wearing in the video is the necklace he gave her. She's wearing his diabetes or medical necklace." Nick Jonas is a diabetic and a committed spokesperson for awareness of the disease.
