Miley Cyrus is continuing to open up about her sexuality, revealing in a new interview that her first relationship was with another girl.
“My eyes started opening in the fifth or sixth grade. My first relationship in my life was with a chick," the 23-year-old tells Variety.
But telling her parents was a challenge. "I grew up in a very religious Southern family. The universe has always given me the power to know I’ll be OK. Even at that time, when my parents didn’t understand, I just felt that one day they are going to understand.”
The Voice coach now identifies as pansexual. “I never related to loving being a girl. And then, being a boy didn’t sound fun to me. I think the LGBTQ alphabet could continue forever. But there’s a “P” that should happen, for ‘pansexual,’" she says.
"Once I understood my gender more, which was unassigned, then I understood my sexuality more," she continues. "I was like, “Oh — that’s why I don’t feel straight and I don’t feel gay. It’s because I’m not.”
