Miley Cyrus thought she ‘had to be gay because all guys were evil’ and the internet is having none of it

Miley Cyrus said that she thought she “had to be gay because all guys were evil” and the internet is having absolutely none of it.

The singer, who came out as pansexual in 2015 and as gender-neutral in 2017, revisited the topic of her sexuality in a bizarre Instagram Live video.

“There are good men out there guys, don’t give up,” she said on Sunday night.

“You don’t have to be gay, there are good people with d**ks out there, you’ve just got to find them.

“I always thought I had to be gay because I thought all guys were evil but it’s not true. There are good people out there that just happen to have d**ks.”

On Twitter, Cyrus was criticised by fans for “encouraging the illusion” that being LGBT+ is a choice.

During her Instagram Live video, Miley Cyrus was joined on screen with her boyfriend Cody Simpson, who she said was the only good person “that just happens to have a d**k” she’s ever met.

She began dating the Australian singer last month, following a short fling with The Hills star Kaitlynn Carter.

Before that, she was in an on-off relationship with Liam Hemsworth, whom she married in December 2018 before calling it quits in October 2019.

A big part of my pride and my identity is being a queer person.

During their marriage, Cyrus said that being in a relationship with a man did not take away from her queer identity.

“We’re redefining, to be f***ing frank, what it looks like for someone that’s a queer person like myself to be in a hetero relationship,” she told Vanity Fair in February.

“A big part of my pride and my identity is being a queer person. What I preach is: People fall in love with people, not gender, not looks, not whatever. What I’m in love with exists on almost a spiritual level. It has nothing to do with sexuality.”
