Miley Cyrus On Being Queer In A 'Hetero Relationship' With Liam Hemsworth

Miley Cyrus is Vanity Fair's new cover girl and the just-released interview sees the pop titan explain that she still identifies herself as a queer person even though she is married to Liam Hemsworth.
In the lengthy feature, which was published on Thursday (February 21), Cyrus explains that she hopes her marriage to the Hollywood titan shifts the general view on love, gender and sexuality. "The reason that people get married sometimes can be old-fashioned, but I think the reason we got married isn't old-fashioned — I actually think it’s kind of New Age," the 26-year-old chart-topper told the magazine. "We're redefining, to be f**king frank, what it looks like for someone that’s a queer person like myself to be in a hetero relationship."
Cyrus went on to admit that a big part of her pride and 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. Relationships and partnerships in a new generation — I don’t think they have so much to do with sexuality or gender," she continued. "Sex is actually a small part, and gender is a very small, almost irrelevant part of relationships."
After taking some inspiration from her "favorite woman in the world, Hillary Clinton," Cyrus realized that that she and Liam were "stronger together" and that was part of her reasoning for marrying the longtime partner. She was simply looking for stability in her life, particularly after the loss of their Malibu home and all of their possessions during the Woolsey fire.
