Miley Cyrus is opening up about her marriage to Liam Hemsworth in her new Elle Magazine cover story.
The singer revealed that her sexuality and her choice to be with a man is a “complex” one but she did her best to explain it.
“I’m in a hetero relationship, but I still am very sexually attracted to women,” she said. “People become vegetarian for health reasons, but bacon is still f–king good, and I know that. I made a partner decision. This is the person I feel has my back the most. I definitely don’t fit into a stereotypical wife role. I don’t even like that word.”
Cyrus also opened up about the idea of women being “selfish,” saying she hates the word.
“We’re expected to keep the planet populated,” she said. “And when that isn’t a part of our plan or our purpose, there is so much judgment and anger that they try to make and change laws to force it upon you—even if you become pregnant in a violent situation. If you don’t want children, people feel sorry for you, like you’re a cold, heartless bitch who’s not capable of love. Why are we trained that love means putting yourself second and those you love first? If you love yourself, then what? You come first.”
Cyrus is all about self-care and empowerment, which is where her album She Is Miley Cyrus comes in.
“‘She’ does not represent a gender. She is not just a woman. ‘She’ doesn’t refer to a vagina. She is a force of nature. She is power. She can be anything you want to be, therefore, she is everything. She is the super she. She is the she-ro. She is the She-E-O.”
