This is not the most shocking news coming from someone as LGBT-friendly, wiiiiild, and tongue-agile as Miley Cyrus, but it’s nice nonetheless: She revealed to the AP that “not all her past relationships were ‘straight, heterosexual’ ones.” The piece continues, “She did not elaborate.”
Miley says she already spent a lot of time struggling with traditional gender expectations—and being resentful that she was a girl. “I didn’t want to be a boy,” she clarifies. “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.”
Cyrus, by the way, revealed this stuff about herself in articles about her new LGBT support group initiative, which is an ingenious way to drum up attention for something with the unfortunate, not at all hip name of Happy Hippie Foundation. I’m not saying she’s being dishonest (I believe both of these quotes wholeheartedly and welcome her to the team), I’m just saying that her attention-grabbing is as on point as usual.
