Miley Cyrus as BJ in the RuPaul's Drag Race season 11 sneak peek

Singer Miley Cyrus has said she feels “like a 15-year-old boy” trapped in a girl’s body.

The Wrecking Ball made the comments to Marie Claire, while discussing her body.

She said: “I feel like a 15-year-old boy trapped in the body of a 22-year-old girl.”

The former Disney star added: “I don’t really stress too much about being out there. There’s nothing left to catch me doing.

“You want to hack my e-mail so you can find my nude pictures? I’ll just fucking put them up.”

She previously spoke out about her gender identity and sexuality, saying: “I’m just even. It has nothing to do with any parts of me or how I dress or how I look. It’s literally just how I feel.”

“I’m not hiding my sexuality. For me, I don’t want to label myself as anything.

“We love putting people in categories, but what I like sexually isn’t going to label me as a person.”

The singer added that she wants to be judged based on herself, not her dating life.

She said: “It has a lot to do with being a feminist, but I’m finally O.K. with being alone. I think that’s something we have to talk about more: that you can be alone.

“There are times in my life where I’ve had boyfriends or girlfriends. And there are times where I just love being with myself and don’t want to give part of myself away to someone else.

“I think that’s a new freedom for women, especially. I don’t know that my mother would have been able to be 22 and secure in being alone. But my future doesn’t rely on having a partner.”
