Miley Cyrus confesses her first relationship was with a girl

By Darren Mew

Ex-Disney star, Miley Cyrus, talks about her sexuality and dating girls in an open and honest interview with Variety.

In a recent interview with US magazine Variety, the 23 year old music star says she identifies as pansexual.

“I don’t feel straight and I don’t feel gay” Miley Cyrus opens up about sexuality

Revealing her first relationship was with a girl, the US Voice judge talks about coming out to her Southern parents and rejecting gender-norms.

“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,”


“My eyes started opening in the fifth or sixth grade. My first relationship in my life was with a chick. I grew up in a very religious Southern family. The universe has always given me the power to know I’ll be OK. Even at that time, when my parents didn’t understand, I just felt that one day they are going to understand.”

The Disney star turned superstar continues, saying that she thinks there should be a P added to the LGBT initialism

“I know some girls that love getting their nails done. I hated it. My nails look like s**t. I don’t wax my eyebrows.”

“I never related to loving being a girl. And then, being a boy didn’t sound fun to me,” she said. “I think the LGBTQ alphabet could continue forever. But there’s a ‘P’ that should happen, for ‘pansexual.'”
