Miley Cyrus revealed in a new interview that she feels like a “15 year-old boy trapped in a 22 year old girl’s body.”
Speaking in the September issue of Marie Claire, Cyrus talked candidly about her revelation that she was gender-fluid.
“I feel like a 15-year-old boy trapped in the body of a 22-year-old girl,” she says. “Lately, I’ve been talking a lot about my being gender-fluid and gender-neutral. And some people snarl at that. They want to judge me. People need more conventional role models, I guess. But I just don’t care to be that person.”
Cyrus also touched on sexism in the industry, and how she feels about her public image. While her dramatic transformation from squeaky clean Disney star, to a spliff-smoking ‘sexual deviant’, she says that she is doing nothing different from her male contemporaries.
“There is so much sexism, ageism, you name it. Kendrick Lamar sings about LSD and he’s cool. I do it and I’m a druggie whore,” she explains.
Last year, Cyrus launched Happy Hippie Foundation – a non-profit charity helping homeless LGBTQ youth.
