Miley Cyrus opened up to Variety magazine to answer questions about her sexuality and how fame has affected the presidential election. In regards to the Kardashians and Trump Cyrus said: “This is not a dig. But I do think there’s something that goes with the Kardashians and Trump. The Kardashians are better than Trump, because they are not trying to run the country. They are just trying to be famous, and that’s fine. We are obsessed with celebrity. When Trump started this, I was laughing. I thought it’s not going to go anywhere; there’s no way he’ll be the candidate.”
It’s clear to say that she is voting for Hillary, she points out that a lot could change if a woman becomes president. “A lot of it could be changed if we had a female president. That would give us a subconscious boost. I think people will have to realize they’re looking really dated.”
As for Cyrus saying she doesn’t identify with being female or male only and after a trip to the Los Angeles LGBTQ center and speaking with some of the people there she realized that she didn’t have to identify to any gender 100%, instead she says that she feels neutral, “Once I understood my gender more, which was unassigned, then I understood my sexuality more. I was like ‘Oh- that’s why I don’t feel straight and I don’t feel gay. It’s because I am not.”
Even though she’s only 23 Cyrus feels that she has lived a lifetime, at the age of 11 she was Disney’s “Hannah Montana” and it was hard as she grew up to keep that squeaky clean image. The tabloids didn’t help and it forced Cyrus to have to choose between her wholesome image or her true self. “I had a clothing line at Walmart and got kicked out, because they said you had to choose weed or Walmart,” Cyrus says. “And you see what I did — I chose weed.”
In 2013 at the VMA’s Cyrus had a revelation and said that being famous and singing while there were so many people homeless and suffering made her do a u-turn and her career path now revolves around her foundation Happy Hippie, which is dedicated to supporting at-risk LGBTQ and homeless youth. She says she’s only doing the voice because it helps her foundation.
Next up, she will playing a 1960’s activist in Woody Allen’s film “Crisis in Six Scenes”
