Miley: My romances weren’t all straight
Miley Cyrus is fine with her raunchy outfits getting people’s attention, because then she can “hustle” them.
The 22-year-old singer confirmed she had split from her fiancé Liam Hemsworth in September 2013 and then moved on with Patrick Schwarzenegger.
Despite being linked to men publicly, the star has hinted she has also enjoyed romances with women.
Miley made the revelation while promoting the Happy Hippie Foundation, which aims to help homeless and LGBT young people. She explained to The Associated Press that the organisation means a lot to her because her past relationships haven’t all been “straight, heterosexual” ones.
The star didn’t elaborate any further on that, although she was happy to talk about her increasingly raunchy stage outfits and social media photos. Miley has posted many images of herself flashing the flesh online, but insists there is a serious reason for her behaviour.
“When you have all eyes on you, what are you saying? And that’s what I had to ask myself a lot,” she said. “It’s like, I know you’re going to look at me more if my [breasts] are out, so look at me. And then I’m going to tell you about my foundation for an hour and totally hustle you.”
The star has been doing some fierce promotion for the new foundation, including talking to ABC News today. While there, she spoke about why she feels perfectly placed to shine a light on teen homelessness.
“I feel completely like I'm not tied to a gender or an age, I feel like an infinite cosmic thing, and that's what I want people to feel,” she said.
She added that the dual nature of the organisation is because such a high proportion of those who have no home come from the LGBT community. Miley believes that is because there is still an issue of acceptance among them, which is why she has been vocal about her support for Bruce Jenner who recently confirmed he identifies as a woman.
As well as speaking about the foundation, Miley has teamed up with some other stars to make music for it. She’s collaborated with the liked of Ariana Grande and Joan Jett and loves that her songs are now for the greater good.
“I've learned how to love myself, as I got older - when I was 16 or 17, that was the hardest years ever," she admitted. "You want to be peaceful with yourself and happy with yourself and love yourself. Sometimes I think, as women especially, I think we're not supposed to say, 'I love myself,' That that's vain. I love myself, and that's what everyone should be able to say.”
