Miley Cyrus Says The 'Minute' She Had Sex, She Couldn't Play Hannah Montana Anymore
Miley Cyrus gave an in-depth interview to Elle, where she opened up about music, acting, feminism, and spilled some behind-the-scenes secrets about her personal life as well.
When Cyrus was asked about when she felt like she wanted to break out of the Hannah Montana role, and she had a very candid response: "I did once I was 18 because it felt ridiculous. The minute I had sex, I was kind of like, I can’t put the f*cking wig on again. It got weird. It just felt like… I was grown up."
She also told a story about a revelation she had while performing as a kid at Disneyland: "One time I went backstage at Disneyland, and Peter Pan was smoking a cigarette. And I was like, ‘That’s me. That’s the kind of dreams I’m crushing’."
Cyrus, who came out as pansexual in 2015, also opened up about her sexuality and her marriage to Liam Hemsworth. Miley said: "I think it’s very confusing to people that I’m married. But my relationship is unique. And I don’t know that I would ever publicly allow people in there because it’s so complex, and modern, and new that I don’t think we’re in a place where people would get it. I mean, do people really think that I’m at home in a f*cking apron cooking dinner? I’m in a hetero relationship, but I still am very sexually attracted to women. I made a partner decision. This is the person I feel has my back the most. I definitely don’t fit into a stereotypical wife role. I don’t even like that word."
On the inspiration and meaning behind her new album She Is Miley Cyrus, the singer explained: "My record is called She Is Miley Cyrus. ‘She’ does not represent a gender. She is not just a woman. ‘She’ doesn’t refer to a vagina. She is a force of nature. She is power. She can be anything you want to be, therefore, she is everything. She is the super she. She is the she-ro. She is the She-E-O."
Meanwhile, Miley is mourning the loss of her pet pig Bubba Sue, aka Pig Pig. The 26-year-old shared the news on Instagram Stories. "Very sad to say… my dear friend Pig Pig has passed away…. I will miss u always," she wrote above a video of herself holding Pig Pig over her shoulder as her pet happily oinked and ate an apple. Cyrus adopted Pig Pig in 2015. She also owns seven dogs, four horses and three cats.
