Not All of Miley Cyrus’ Past Relationships Were ‘Straight’ or ‘Heterosexual’
Miley Cyrus recently referenced her past relationships in an interview, admitting that not all of them have been "straight, heterosexual" ones. But rather than go into detail, she turned the conversation around to talk about the launch of the Happy Hippie Foundation.
In an interview with the Associated Press Miley spoke about the foundation, which is meant to support homeless and LGBT youth. She said she feels it is imperative for her to use her celebrity platform to help others: "The position I'm in, I feel like I've got a lot of power. But so many kids don't feel that way. They're under their parents' rule."
Once she realized she had the resources to truly make a difference, she decided to use her shock-value shtick for good. Miley said, "When you have all eyes on you, what are you saying? And that's what I had to ask myself a lot. It's like, I know you're going to look at me more if my (breasts) are out, so look at me. And then I'm going to tell you about my foundation for an hour and totally hustle you."
Miley also spoke with Out about rejecting labels and struggling with what was expected of her because of her gender. She said, "I didn’t want to be a boy. I kind of wanted to be nothing. I don’t relate to what people would say defines a girl or a boy, and I think that’s what I had to understand: Being a girl isn’t what I hate, it’s the box that I get put into.”
Miley later posted an excerpt from a post on the Daily Dot on Instagram that reads, in part, "Miley Cyrus -- though not explicitly labeling herself -- appears to be genderqueer," along with the caption, "NOTHING can/will define me! Free to be EVERYTHING!!!"
