Miley Cyrus: Not all of my relationships have been straight ones

Joseph McCormick May 6, 2015

Miley Cyrus has said in an interview that not all of her past relationships have been “straight, heterosexual” ones.

The singer and actor made the comments in an interview with the Associated Press, but declined to elaborate.

She did go on to comment on the issue of youth homelessness on the back of recently launching the Happy Hippy Foundation, which seeks to offer support for homeless LGBT youths.

“The position I’m in, I feel like I’ve got a lot of power,” Cyrus told the AP. “But, so many kids don’t feel that way. They’re under their parents’ rule.

“We’re consciously ignoring [teenage homelessness] at all times, but it’s always happening right in front of us,” she continued.

The Foundation will also launch new music, including a collaboration between Joan Jett and Ariana Grande, to raise awareness of the cause.

“It’s not going to be an overnight process,” Cyrus said. “You’ve got to get into a lot of people’s brains and you’ve got to really make this a topic.”

Commenting on her sometimes controversial looks, Cyrus said pushing the envelope sometimes helped her progress causes like the Happy Hippy Foundation.

“When you have all eyes on you, what are you saying? And, that’s what I had to ask myself a lot,” she said.

“It’s like, I know you’re going to look at me more if my (breasts) are out, so look at me. And, then I’m going to tell you about my foundation for an hour and totally hustle you.”

Cyrus last month took aim at the Governor of Indiana for signing a controversial bill that allows organisations to discriminate based on religious objection, calling him an “A-hole”.
