In Miley Cyrus’ latest interview for Paper Mag she talks about her latest venture the “Happy Hippie Foundation, a philanthropic venture designed to raise funds and awareness for homeless and LGBT youth”.
Miley started the foundation after she found it impossible to ignore homeless people as she drove around in her Porsche. “I see it all day: people in their Bentleys and their Rolls and their Ubers, driving past these vets who have fought for our country, or these young women who have been raped.”However it seems the most interesting part of the interview is when Cyrus talks about her own sexuality and gender identification. Claiming to be open to everything as long as it is with a consenting adult and excludes animals. “I don’t relate to being boy or girl, and I don’t have to have my partner relate to boy or girl” also claiming to have relations with women that were as serious as the heterosexual ones that ended up in tabloids. At age 14 she confessed to her mother that she had romantic feelings toward women, her mother found it hard to understand “She didn’t want me to be judged and she didn’t want me to go to hell”. Miley’s Happy Hippie Foundation aims to treat at-risk kids with art and animal therapies, two proven balms that have been instrumental in Cyrus’ own self-care.
