Miley Cyrus got super candid in a recent interview in Elle magazine’s August issue. She discussed her sexuality, married life, and music and what she has learned through it all.
Miley was candid about her marriage to actor Liam Hemsworth and how her relationship is different from most. Miley revealed how “I think it’s very confusing to people that I’m married, but my relationship is unique.” This comes after Miley’s recent release of her new album, She Is Coming, which promotes sex positivity and female empowerment. Miley has come out as pan-sexual, despite being in a relationship with a man. “I’m in a hetero relationship, but I still am very sexually attracted to women.” She stated during the interview. “I made a partner decision. This is the person I feel has my back the most. I definitely don’t fit into a stereotypical wife role. I don’t even like that word.”
Miley also discussed her new album and the meaning behind it. “‘She’ does not represent a gender,” Miley said. “She is not just a woman. ‘She’ doesn’t refer to a vagina. She is a force of nature. She is power. She can be anything you want to be, therefore, she is everything. She is the super she. She is the she-ro. She is the She-E-O.”
Miley is very sex-positive and was very open about her sexuality during the interview. “I like the way being sexual makes me feel, but I’m never performing for men,” Miley said. “They shouldn’t compliment themselves to think that the decisions I’m making in my career would have anything to do with them getting pleasure. I don’t think that because some guy thinks I’m hot he’s going to buy my record. It doesn’t help me.”
Through it all, Miley hopes to get the message across that loving yourself should come first.
“Why are we trained that love means putting yourself second and those you love first? If you love yourself, then what? You come first.”
