Miley Cyrus recently shared that not all of her relationships have been “straight” or “heterosexual.” Now the pop singer/ex-child star expands on her sexuality in a new interview with Paper magazine, saying, “I am literally open to every single thing that is consenting and doesn’t involve an animal.”
The former Disney actress said she considers both her sexuality and gender identity fluid, elaborating to the magazine:
“Everything that’s legal, I’m down with. Yo, I’m down with any adult — anyone over the age of 18 who is down to love me. I don’t relate to being boy or girl, and I don’t have to have my partner relate to boy or girl.”
Her fans are aware of her high-profile romances with Liam Hemsworth, Nick Jonas, and recently with Patrick Schwarzenegger, but Cyrus says she’s also had “romantic entanglements” with women that were equally serious. They flew under the radar, and she let them. Now, at age 22 – perhaps as part of her charity work with the Happy Hippie Foundation, a charity organization she started to raise money and awareness for homeless LGBT youth – Cyrus going public.
