Miley Cyrus is going to talk about her sexuality. And she doesn’t care what anybody has to say about it.
The 22-year-old has opened up to TIME magazine about her love life – after recently splitting from Patrick Schwarzenegger – and talks about how dating both men and women is hard.
Pointing out that she was always the person girls ‘wanted to experiment’ with in her hometown of Nashville, Miley went on to say that those alpha-male types (could she be talking about ex-fiance Liam Hemsworth?) were sometimes too much for her to handle.
‘That made me feel like I had to be a femme-bot, which I’m not’, she said of her previous experiences with boyfriends.
But dating women has also had its complications for Miley, it seems. ‘And then 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.’
Miley recently launched a new #InstaPride campaign with Instagram to help support the LGBT movement. And it’s a topic close to her heart, as she explains that she’s had her own struggles with her sexuality over the years.
‘I hope more kids don’t do what I did and sit in their room and cry, thinking “I just don’t know what I’m supposed to be,'” she said. ‘But when I tell kids sometimes, “Just be yourself,” I feel like, “I hope you can do that. Can you really do that?'”
‘Maybe if you’re finally getting to be yourself, it’s more of a celebration,’ Miley added. ‘Like, you are living your f***ing life.’
So, is she looking for Mr or Mrs Right? Well, in typical Miley style, she’s not settling for anything less than amazing. (A sentiment we wholeheartedly agree with, may we add).
Remembering how she spent Valentine’s Day last year, the singer said:
‘All the women in the restaurant were with these older, fat men that had just let themselves go. They were just being drunk b**tards. And then the women were sitting there, trying so hard just to look good. And they’re ignoring them the whole time. And I thought, “I’m not living like this.””
She added: ‘If I end up in a straight relationship, that’s fine – but I’m not going to be with f***ing slob guys who are watching porn, making all their girls feel ugly.’
Crikey. Well, she told ’em.
