Miley Cyrus has recently revealed that she came out to her mother at a tender age of 14. Miley also shared that she is attracted to both men and women and is currently working on raising awareness of the issues faced by the LGBT community.
“Anyone should be able to express how they feel, without question, be able to live, and use the f–king public restrooms,” Cyrus said in an interview with Time magazine.
“People try to make everyone something. You can just be whatever you want to be,” the singer went on to add.
Miley shared that dating men “made [her] feel like [she] had to be a femme-bot, which [she’s] not,” whereas dating women is different. “I felt like, ‘Oh s–t, she’s going to need someone to protect her, so I’m going to need to have this macho energy.’ And that didn’t feel right either,” the singer was honest.
“I hope more kids don’t do what I did and sit in their room and cry, thinking ‘I just don’t know what I’m supposed to be,'” she said. “But when I tell kids sometimes, ‘Just be yourself,’ I feel like, ‘I hope you can do that. Can you really do that?'”
