‘I’m 22, I’m going on dates, but I change my style every two weeks, let alone who I’m with’
It's not been the most quiet week for Miley. After courting controversy with her sequinned tit pasties and her dismissal of Nicki Minaj's VMA snub, the “Wrecking Ball” singer is now getting candid once again – only this time, it's her sexuality that's in the frame.
In an interview for Elle UK's upcoming October issue, Miley addressed her famously fluid relationship choices. “I’m very open about it – I’m pansexual,” the VMAs host revealed. “But I’m not in a relationship.”
To anyone not familiar with the term, those who identify as being pansexual look beyond the gender binary of male/female, and are not limited in sexual choice with regard to biological sex, gender, or gender identity. Although Miley has previously identified as queer, this admission paints a much clearer picture of how open she really is.
As it currently stands, only 1 to 2 per cent of the population would describe themselves as pansexual. However, that number is steadily on the rise – especially as our attitudes towards different sexual preferences get more and more accepting. A recent YouGov poll revealed that half of young people don't even identify as straight, which, when you think about it, is pretty staggering.
“I’m 22, I’m going on dates,” she added. “But I change my style every two weeks, let alone who I’m with.”
