Miley Cyrus has opened up about not being “put in a box” when it comes to categorizing her sexuality, but if there’s one thing she’s certain about, it’s that she loves love.
The 23-year-old singer and Liam Hemsworth have rekindled their flame, are re-engaged and going stronger than ever, proving that love can indeed conquer all.
In fact, a source tells, “Miley really loves nesting with Liam. She’s loving just being at home with him.”
One thing she’s taken on is a knack for cooking. “She cooks a lot,” a source reveals. “She loves trying out new recipes all the time.”
Miley and Liam were first rumoured to have gotten back together in January, confirming their rekindling and re-engagement a few weeks later.
Some people found themselves confused about the news regarding Miley’s sexuality, considering she had most previously dated Stella Maxwell.
Thus, the “Wrecking Ball” singer set the record straight in a new interview for Variety’s Power of Women issue.
“My whole life, I didn’t understand my own gender and my own sexuality. 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,” she told the publication. “I went to the LGBTQ centre here in L.A., and I started hearing these stories. I saw one human in particular who didn’t identify as male or female.”
She continued, “Looking at them, they were both: beautiful and sexy and tough but vulnerable and feminine but masculine. And I related to that person more than I related to anyone in my life.”
Miley explained that this person made her realize she, too, is neutral. “Even though I may seem very different, people may not see me as neutral as I feel. But I feel very neutral,” she said.
“I think that was the first gender-neutral person I’d ever met. Once I understood my gender more, which was unassigned, then I understood my sexuality more. I was like, ‘Oh—that’s why I don’t feel straight and I don’t feel gay. It’s because I’m not.'”
