Miley Cyrus: I love London because there are so many gay people
Miley Cyrus says she loves London because it has more gay people than she’s ever seen.
In an interview to Bang Showbiz, the 20-year-old Hannah Montana actress and singer spoke fondly of the British capital, saying:
”My favourite place to perform is London, because I have never seen more gay people in my whole life.”
”When I go to London that’s what it is. I feel like they are so much more open, much more than here in the US where they’re feeling trapped, where it’s like, ‘Can I even say I believe in gay marriage? Can I say that my favourite fans are my gay fans?’ Am I allowed to say that, because half of America is still against it?
”It’s like, I just feel like when I go to Europe, I feel very free with my fan base’,” she added.
Earlier in 2012, Cyrus criticised the president of US fashion chain Urban Outfitters for financially backing the anti-gay Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum during his period as a US senator, she then received hate mail for her support of gay rights, yet that did not stop her getting a tattoo representing the sentiment “equal love for all,” emblazoned on her middle finger.
