Miley Cyrus Says Her Relationships Haven’t Been Just ‘Straight, Heterosexual’
In an interview with Sandy Cohen of The Associated Press on Tuesday (May 5, 2015), superstar Miley Cyrus said that not all of her past relationships were “straight, heterosexual” ones. Although she didn’t use the B-word, media outlets are interpreting this as the actress/singer coming out as bisexual.
Out Magazine came right out and asked her if she’s bisexual or gay and she didn’t quite answer:
”I didn’t want to be a boy. I kind of wanted to be nothing. I don’t relate to what people would say defines a girl or a boy, and I think that’s what I had to understand: Being a girl isn’t what I hate… it’s the box that I get put into.”
The 22-year-old is launching a Happy Hippie Foundation to help homeless and BLGT youth, and said she wants to use her famous face to help with causes, like Bruce Jenner did with trans issues.
“The position I’m in, I feel like I’ve got a lot of power,” Cyrus told The AP. “But, so many kids don’t feel that way. They’re under their parents’ rule.”
She added, “When you have all eyes on you, what are you saying? And, that’s what I had to ask myself a lot. 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.”
Her revelations came out on the same day that she released a new music video called “Bitch” (see video above) with Zoe Kravitz, for her band Lolawolf. Miley and Zoe frolic around a hotel room in their underwear, playing cards on a bed, taking pictures, smoking and having a their own little party. It makes “Wrecking Ball” look like, well, a Hannah Montana episode.
Then, on Monday night in New York City, Miley and Zoe arrived hand in hand at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala.
For at least two years it has been speculated that Cyrus is bisexual. Consider this:
* The famous Studio City, California resident has previously dated Nick Jonas, Patrick Schwarzenegger and was engaged to Liam Hemsworth.
* Just last month she was photographed kissing female model Frankie Rayder.
* One of her new tattoos on her ring finger has an equal sign to promote marriage equality.
* Last December, Miley tweeted out a picture of her kissing out bisexual Cara Delevingne, who is now dating bisexual Fast & Furious actress Michelle Rodriguez.
* Miley made out with Katy Perry during a concert in Los Angeles in February.
Miley said in her interview, “No one should have to hide who they really are, no matter what his or her name, gender or status.”
But for now, the superstar is still not being very clear.
