Miley Cyrus is no holds barred in her interview with Elle UK.
The normally scantily clad 22-year-old showed off a more demure side on the cover ahead of her VMA hosting gig. She opens up about her sexuality, citing she’s pansexual, which is defined as someone who isn’t “limited in sexual choice with regard to biological sex, gender, or gender identity.”
“I’m very open about it — I’m pansexual. But I’m not in a relationship,” says Cyrus, who was recently linked to Stella Maxwell. “I’m 22, I’m going on dates, but I change my style every two weeks, let alone who I’m with.”
She doesn’t have room for labels.
“I don’t relate to what people have made men and women into. I know I’m more extreme and badass than most guys, but that doesn’t make me a boy. And the other night I wore a pink dress because I felt cute. I can bake a cupcake and then go play hockey.”
Cyrus shot to super stardom during her time as Hannah Montana on The Disney Channel. This forced her, as she put it, to become someone she wasn’t. “I’ve had really bad anxiety and depression in my life and a lot of that stemmed from the way I look,” she says. “Now I really try not to give a f*ck. If you’re funny enough and cool enough and confident, that’s what will make you feel beautiful.”
She adds, “If you get your tits out, and they are all looking, then you can use that space to say something and get them to listen,” she argues. Miley even reflects on her time during the Bangerz era, saying she couldn’t believe she was making bank while others less fortunate were struggling. Soon after, she launched her Happy Hippie Foundation to support homeless LGBTQ youth.
“I was kind of embarrassed that I got paid money to shake my ass in a teddy bear costume,” admits Cyrus. “I should not be worth the amount I am while people live on the street.”
While she is exploring philanthropic endeavors, Cyrus admits she could never run for president. “I couldn’t be [Barack Obama]. There are too many idiots in politics, and I have a short fuse.”
Adding, “The trouble with politics is that it’s all old men. I don’t want a man to do anything for me because they’re so disorganized. You need a woman in there taking care of sh*t.”
