Miley Cyrus reveals she told her mom she was bisexual at 14

Miley Cyrus has opened up about her sexuality and gender identity, revealing she told her mom she was bisexual at age 14.

When she was known to all back then as Hannah Montana, the ‘We Can’t Stop’ singer has revealed she was aware of her emotions at a young age.

Speaking to Paper magazine, she told her mom Tish as a teen she ‘admire[s] women in a different way’. When asked what she meant, Miley said: ‘I love them. I love them like I love boys.’ 

She added she considers her sexuality and gender identity as fluid, saying she doesn’t ‘relate to being a boy or girl’ and doesn’t need her partner to relate to being a boy or girl either. 

Raised in a Christian, conservative family, she said her mother found it difficult to understand her attraction to women. But Miley just asked her mother to accept her, which she did. 

‘She believes in me more than she believes in any God,’ she said. 

The 22-year-old also revealed of her sex life: ‘I am literally open to every single thing that’s consenting and doesn’t involve an animal and everyone is of age.

‘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.’

In May, Miley launched the Happy Hippie Foundation, a non-profit organisation aiming to raise awareness for issues facing homeless and LGBTI youth. In particular, she aims to help young people who have run away from, or been rejected by their families.
