Is Miley Cyrus Gay?
When it comes to her sexual orientation, it seems Miley Cyrus wants to keep us guessing.
Back in December, Miley tweeted out a picture of her making out with Victoria’s Secret model Cara Delevingne. Was she doing it just to be edgy, or to make a bold statement about her sexuality? Perhaps both. View the tweet here. (Contains sensitive material.)
A year ago Miley sent out a sexy tweet about her Katy Perry fantasies.
Lately tabloid rumors have been swirling that Miley is bisexual and loves sexual experimentation. While it could be all for show, an attempt to cast herself as a wild child or bad girl, Life and Style newsstand tabloid reports that a source has informed them that Miley “is definitely bisexual. She has women over to her house all the time and hooks up with them. Lately she is more interested in women than men. She was completely brokenhearted after Liam [Hemsworth] and is kind of over men for the time being. I wouldn’t be surprised if a woman came out and said she has hooked up with her soon.” (Quote via The Daily Mail).
Miley hasn’t made any public statements either confirming or denying the rumors. While keeping her sexual orientation private for now, Miley has been an outspoken supporter of gay rights on a variety of fronts. On January 6 she tweeted out a pic of her wearing a Marc Jacobs pro-gay-rights tank top reading “I pay my taxes – I want my rights.”

In a piece she wrote for Glamour magazine in February of 2012, Miley expressed her strong support for gay marriage: “I believe every American should be allowed the same rights and civil liberties. Without legalized same-sex marriage, most of the time you cannot share the same health benefits, you are not considered next of kin and you are not granted the same securities as a heterosexual couple. How is this different than having someone sit in the back of the bus because of their skin color?”
She also stated in the piece that she is boycotting Urban Outfitters because the head of that company donated to a presidential candidate that does not support gay marriage.
It was after cropping her hair in July 2013 that rumors about Miley being gay began to increase. Miley was unfazed, saying she didn’t mind being called a lesbian.
“Everyone said I was a lesbian but I’m like, ‘Being a lesbian isn’t a bad thing. So if you think I look like I’m a lesbian, I’m not offended. You can call me much worse.’ I’ve been called much worse. Being a lesbian is a compliment more than what else they call me,” she told the Toronto Sun.
For now, there’s only one love in Miley’s life…her dog.
