Miley Cyrus doesn’t like labels. The “Nightmare” singer stripped down to her birthday suit for a photo shoot with Paper magazine and talked about her bisexuality.
Cyrus was 14 when she knew that she was attracted to men and women, and told her mother, Tish, about it. "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," Cyrus told Paper, according to People magazine. "And it was so hard for her to understand. She didn't want me to be judged and she didn't want me to go to hell. But she believes in me more than she believes in any God. I just asked for her to accept me. And she has."
The singer, 22, added that there is nothing she isn’t “down” with. "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," Cyrus told the magazine, which famously put a naked Kim Kardashian on its cover in October.
"Yo, I'm down with any adult -- anyone over the age of 18 who is down to love me. I don't relate to being boy or girl, and I don't have to have my partner relate to boy or girl," she added.
Cyrus posed for the cover of the magazine with her pet pig, Bubba Sue, snapped by photographer Paola Kudacki. She was drenched in mud and held the pig so Bubba covered her unmentionables. The tag line of the cover: “Miley Cyrus: Use Your Voice.”
The former Disney star recently released her song “Nightmare,” which some people assumed was about ex-fiancé Liam Hemsworth. Check out the single below:
