Miley Cyrus’ Most Candid Quotes About Her Sexuality

posted in: Entertainment News | 0

Don’t f—k with her freedom! Miley Cyrus has been outspoken about an assortment of issues, from her political beliefs to her recreational drug use. However, her brutally honest remarks about her sexuality stand out from the pack.

Cyrus married longtime love Liam Hemsworth in Franklin, Tennessee, over the Christmas holiday in 2018. Their marriage came after the Last Song costars dated off and on for nine years.

The Hunger Games actor told GQ Australia in May that the deadly California wildfires in 2018 are what encouraged the couple to tie the knot. “We really fell in love quickly and had a really strong connection from the beginning, and I think in the back of my head I knew it was on the cards, but we weren’t planning to have a wedding anytime soon,” he said at the time. “Then just going through something this emotional with someone, it brings you closer and we felt like we’d lost a big part of our lives, so we wanted to make a new part of our lives.”

While Cyrus and the 29-year-old Australian actor claim to have a strong relationship, the actress has been candid about her engaging in non-heterosexual relationships in the past.

“People become vegetarian for health reasons, but bacon is still f—king good, and I know that. I made a partner decision. This is the person I feel has my back the most,” Cyrus said in Elle’s August 2019 issue. “I definitely don’t fit into a stereotypical wife role. I don’t even like that word.”

Patrick Schwarzenegger, Justin Gaston and Tyler Posey are among some of Cyrus’ famous male exes. The “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart” singer, however, has also been linked to model Stella Maxwell. Shortly after splitting with Schwarzenegger in April 2015, Cyrus was spotted kissing the Victoria’s Secret Angel — a moment that occurred one month after she revealed her interest in both men and women to Paper magazine.

Bye, Bye Hannah Montana

In Elle’s August 2019 issue, Cyrus revealed why she struggled with continuing to star on Hannah Montana after losing her virginity. “The minute I had sex, I was kind of like, I can’t put the f— king wig on again,” she said. “It got weird. I grew up.”

The Rules of Attraction

“I think the reason we got married isn’t old-fashioned — I actually think it’s kind of New Age,” she told Vanity Fair in February 2019. “We’re redefining, to be f—ing frank, what it looks like for someone that’s a queer person like myself to be in a hetero relationship. A big part of my pride and my identity is being a queer person.”

Identifying as Queer While Married

“I think the reason we got married isn’t old-fashioned — I actually think it’s kind of New Age,” she told Vanity Fair in February 2019. “We’re redefining, to be f—ing frank, what it looks like for someone that’s a queer person like myself to be in a hetero relationship. A big part of my pride and my identity is being a queer person.”

Love Is Love

Also during her Vanity Fair interview, she opened up about how she views her pansexuality. “What I’m in love with exists on almost a spiritual level. It has nothing to do with sexuality,” she said at the time. “Relationships and partnerships in a new generation — I don’t think they have so much to do with sexuality or gender. Sex is actually a small part, and gender is a very small, almost irrelevant part of relationships.”

Coming to Terms

In 2016, Cyrus admitted in Variety’s Power of Women L.A. issue that she considers herself to be gender-neutral. “Once I understood my gender more, which was unassigned, then I understood my sexuality more,” she previously said. “I was like, ‘Oh — that’s why I don’t feel straight and I don’t feel gay. It’s because I’m not.”

First Foray Into Dating

“My eyes started opening in the fifth or sixth grade. My first relationship in my life was with a chick,” she admitted to Variety in 2016. “I grew up in a very religious Southern family. The universe has always given me the power to know I’ll be OK. Even at that time, when my parents didn’t understand, I just felt that one day they are going to understand.”

Sex Confessions

During a December 2018 appearance on SiriusXM’s “Howard Stern Show,” Cyrus admitted that her husband “got a lot of action for saving” their pets amid the dangerous California wildfires that burned down the couple’s home one month prior.

Men vs. Women

Cyrus opened up to Time in 2016 about how her experience dating both men and women has differed. She stated that men tend to have “overly macho energy,” which “made me feel like I had to be a femme-bot, which I’m not.” She then explained how things shifted when she dated women, adding: “When I was with a girl, I felt like, ‘Oh s—t, she’s going to need someone to protect her, so I’m going to need to have this macho energy.’ And that didn’t feel right either.”

The Path to Acceptance

“I remember telling [my mom Tish Cyrus] I admire women in a different way. And she asked me what that meant. And I said ‘I love them. I love them like I love boys,’” Cyrus told Paper magazine in June 2015. “And it was so hard for her to understand. She didn’t want me to be judged and she didn’t want me to go to hell. But she believes in me more than she believes in any God. I just asked for her to accept me. And she has.”
