According to new reports, not only does Miley Cyrus not mind jokes about her haircut making her seem to be “leaning towards gay” she “loves” lesbians, and takes it as a compliment.

An anonymous friend of Cyrus told HollwoodLife:

“Miley isn’t a lesbian at all but she takes it as a compliment. Lesbians are awesome and courageous and she loves them.

“Her hair is just an edgy style that she loves and it’s something she thought of on her own. She isn’t hurt or otherwise offended by people talking about her hair negatively, and she doesn’t think that being called a lesbian is a bad thing at all.”

Last week, Evan Rachel Wood had tweeted, with reference to Miley Cyrus’ new, short haircut: “I called it! Miley cyrus is leaning toward gay.”

Wood took to Twitter to defend herself, to explain that she meant no harm, and that she only ever intended the tweet as a joke for friend, Miley.

An active gay rights advocate, Cyrus recently criticised the president of Urban Outfitters for anti-gay campaign support, has received hate mail for her support of gay rights and she recently got a tattoo representing the sentiment “equal love for all.”
