In an interview with Paper Magazine released today, Miley Cyrus elaborated on her fluid sexuality, saying that when she was just fourteen years old, she confessed to her mother she had romantic feelings toward women.
"I remember telling her I admire women in a different way,” Miley said. “And she asked me what that meant. And I said, I love them. I love them like I love boys. And it was so hard for her to understand. She didn't want me to be judged and she didn't want me to go to hell. But she believes in me more than she believes in any god. I just asked for her to accept me. And she has."
Miley started the Happy Hippie Foundation, an organization that raises awareness and money for homeless and LGBT youth, to help give others that same kind of acceptance. "We can't keep noticing these kids too late," she told Paper. "I can't drive by in my f--king Porsche and not f--king do something.”
Miley also expanded on what she’s said about her gender in the past, saying "I don't relate to being boy or girl, and I don't have to have my partner relate to boy or girl," she said.
"I am literally open to every single thing that is consenting and doesn't involve an animal and everyone is of age," she continued. "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," she said.
Miley also told Paper that she's had relationships with women that were just as serious as her very public relationships with men like Liam Hemsworth and Nick Jonas. "I've had that," she told Paper. "But people never really looked at it, and I never brought it into the spotlight."
Way to go, Miley!
