Miley Cyrus got a lot of shit for cutting all her hair off last year since everyone was all used to her being (stereotypically) femme-y and all Hannah Montana-y and whatnot. Some people even began speculating on her sexuality, and many attempted to “insult” her by calling her a lesbian. One small problem with that, though: she actually takes that as a compliment, LOL!
From The Toronto Sun:
“Everyone said I was a lesbian but I’m like, ‘Being a lesbian isn’t a bad thing. So if you think I look a lesbian, I’m not offended. You can call me much worse’. I’ve been called much worse. Being a lesbian is a compliment more than what else they call me.
“People think short hair, they think tomboy… and I’ve obviously done the opposite ’cause when I cut my hair, I did my first Maxim cover where I got No 1 (in their annual hot list). And it wasn’t about me being the sexiest. It was about the fans voting. But it’s something I loved. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Maxim cover with a girl with short hair.”
She added: “No one would have planned a haircut to change my life. There’s something about having no hair that it screams being confident.
“And I think especially because people like to put people in a box, I mean the names I’ve been called since I cut my hair.”
I’m so torn with Miley. I really like her sometimes – like here – and then others, she comes off like an obnoxious prat. I was listening her to Grimmy’s Radio 1 Breakfast Show yesterday morning and she was saying shit like that she “created an empire for herself from the age of 11″ (yes, seriously) and how she loved making a male fan of hers twerk in heels for concert tickets, because “if you can make ‘em do it, do!” I was like, girl… no. But anyway, it’s totally cool if you wanna call Miley gay. She’s totally secure in herself and totally still engaged!
