At the MTV Video Music Awards, Miley Cyrus, announced that she was following 2013’s Bangerz – her platinum-selling – major label pop album, with 23 sprawling new songs, now streaming free online.
And it would turn out the one of her songs Bang Me Box is about sex with a woman.
In an interview with the New York Times, Cyrus talked about her identity and new album.
I feel very gender-fluid. For a long time I didn’t understand my own sexuality. I would get really frustrated and think I’d never understand what I am, because I can’t even figure out if I’m feeling more like a girl or boy. It took me talking to enough trans people to realize that I didn’t ever have to decide on one.”
In a new interview with Elle Magazine, Miley Cyrus has clarified that she actually identifies as pansexual – the attraction to people regardless of sex or gender identity – rather than bisexual, which has been widely reported in the media.
She told the magazine:
I’m very open about it – I’m pansexual. But I’m not in a relationship. I’m 22, I’m going on dates, but I change my style every two weeks, let alone who I’m with.”
The Cyrus also spoke about to discusses why she decided to use her power, and popularity, to do something important by setting up her charity The Happy Hippie Foundation.
I was kind of embarrassed that I got paid money to shake my ass in a teddy bear costume. I should not be worth the amount I am while people live on the streets.”
If you get your tits out, and they are all looking, then you can use that space to say something and get them to listen.”
The star says she has no plans to settle down just yet – with a person of any gender.
Like her or loathe her, everyone has an opinion onMiley Cyrus. So the singer went undercover onJimmy Kimmel’s show to see what people really thought of her.
Cyrus disguised herself as an Australian called Janet for the talk show host’s ‘I Witness News’ segment and took to the streets of LA to see if, despite the tabloid frenzy, people actually thought she was a bad role model.
One interviewee not only blasted the entire Cyrus family, but later on suggested,
I think she’s starving for attention and that’s why she’s doing it all crazy like that. She’s missing something somewhere.”
Cyrus said, not missing a beat.
In her heart, probably. In her deep soul.”
The awkwardness continued. Cyrus spoke with a man who had no problem with her, but liked Taylor Swift better.
Speaking to another woman, Cyrus pretended to forget her own father’s name while the woman posited,
I think she lost her mind in the Hollywood madness.”
Still, Cyrus had some fun with some of her interviewees, including two teens who sang the chorus of “We Can’t Stop” before joining the eager, pant-suited Janet for a quick twerk. The entire bit ended with one man telling Janet straight up, “I think you’re Miley Cyrus right now.”
Turning towards the man and offering him a peak down her blouse.
Looks like Miley Cyrus, doesn’t it? I need you to keep that on the DL, but it’s Miley Cyrus’ titties. Janet up here, Miley down here.”
If you’re the kind of person that doesn’t hate Miley Cyrus, she is hosting the VMA music awards this weekend, which, given the fracas between Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift last month, might make for quite good telly.>
