Miley Cyrus WON’T be put in a box! The singer admits that she had difficulty understanding her sexuality growing up, and is now reflecting on her first-ever relationship with a chick! Read all the details on her sexual journey, here.
Miley Cyrus, 23, recently identified as being pansexual, but it took her a few years to become truly comfortable with her sexual status. “My whole life, I didn’t understand my own gender and my own sexuality,” she confesses to Variety. “I always hated the word “bisexual,” because that’s even putting me in a box. I don’t ever think about someone being a boy or someone being a girl.”
We’d be lying if we said we didn’t have a few questions ourselves. When Miley burst on the Hollywood scene, she was this little adorable girl starring as Hannah Montana. Even when the blonde beauty started dating Liam Hemsworth she was so clean-cut! Almost overnight, the “Wrecking Ball” singer turned into this edgy badass. She cut her hair off, dyed it platinum blonde, and started making out with girls like Victoria’s Secret model Stella Maxwell! We kept wondering, is she gay? Bisexual? Straight with some curiosities?
Turns out, we had it wrong all along! She’s none of those things because gender doesn’t matter to her. “My eyes started opening in the fifth or sixth grade,” she continues, adding, “My first relationship in my life was with a chick.” The new The Voice judge goes on to explain that she really started understanding her pansexual identity when she visited LA’s LGBTQ center, and found herself relating to a lot of unexpected people who shared similar beliefs. Her fluid sexuality is probably one of the main reasons why Liam loves her so much! She’s incredibly open and honest, but we still can’t get an official wedding date out of her!
