Over the years, Miley Cyrus has pondered the question of her own gender identity and in her new interview with ‘Paper’ magazine, the singer opened up about being gender ‘fluid.’
Miley Cyrus, 22, is giving the world a look into her personal life like never before. The singer talked openly about being gender fluid and exactly what that means to her in her new interview with Paper magazine — find out exactly what she said about identifying with being neither male nor female.
“I don’t relate to being boy or girl, and I don’t have to have my partner relate to boy or girl,” Miley explained in the interview. For those who still have questions as to exactly what “gender fluid” means, nonbinary.org defines the term as:
“Genderfluid aka Gender-fluid, Gender Fluid, or Fluid Gender is an identity under the multigender, nonbinary, and transgender umbrellas. Genderfluid individuals have different gender identities at different times. A genderfluid individual’s gender identity could be multiple genders at once, and then switch to none at all, or move between single gender identities.”
Miley went on to talk about her also fluid sexual preferences by saying, “I am literally open to every single thing that is 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.”
The singer also revealed that she’s had several relationships with women in the past. “I’ve had that,” she admits. “But people never really looked at it, and I never brought it into the spotlight.” She went on to talk about coming out to her mom at the age of 14. “I remember telling her I admire women in a different way. And she asked me what that meant. And I said, I love them. I love them like I love boys,” she said.
