Miley Cyrus says that it is “incomprehensible” that people in the USA still oppose marriage equality.


In an interview with German Vogue, the Wrecking Ball singer said, “Despite the fact that it’s the 21st century and America is so proud of being a free country, sometimes incomprehensible things happen in our society.

“There is racism and discrimination. I fight against that. I demand more tolerance, especially for homosexuals, who of course should be allowed to marry.”

The 21 year-old also urged young people express themselves to the fullest, like she does with her “wild outfits [and] crazy haircuts”. She added, “Every young person has the right to get free of whatever’s restricting them.”

Cyrus has spoken out in favour of same-sex marriage several times, and in 2011 she had a small equals sign (=) tattooed on her wedding finger to show her support.

In 2012 she explained the tattoo saying, “I believe every American should be allowed the same rights and civil liberties. Without legalised 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?”

The interview in German Vogue was featured alongside a Madonna inspired photoshoot by the iconic Mario Testino.
