Miley Cyrus‘ favorite thing to talk about? Miley Cyrus.
In a couple of posts, I feel like Miley has decided that she, too, is an advocate for the LGBT community.Â She also feels like she’s worked her way up out of something and endured a lot of difficulty, which I guess is true if your definition of difficulty is…having a famous dad and having every opportunity growing up?
ANYWAY, here’s a Time Magazine interview with Miley in case you wanted some half-baked (probably literally) “inspiration:”
On conforming: â€œPeople try to make everyone something,â€ Cyrus says. â€œYou can just be whatever you want to be.â€
On how she’s learned to stand up for herself: I had to take (my braces) off immediately because of the way I looked,â€ she says. â€œIf I was me now, I would have been like, â€˜Fâ€” you. Normal 14-year-olds have braces. Iâ€™m going to have braces on the show, so kids who have braces in real life know thatâ€™s okay.â€™ But I didnâ€™t have that in my mind then. I was coming from Nashville. My grandmaâ€™s a beauty queen. I didnâ€™t know.â€
On finding a sexual partner: â€œFâ€”ing is easy. You can find someone to fâ€” in five seconds,â€ she says. â€œWe want to find someone we can talk to. And be ourselves with. Thatâ€™s fairly slim pickings.â€
On being yourself: â€œMaybe if youâ€™re finally getting to be yourself, itâ€™s more of a celebration,â€ she says, surrounded by new gender-nonconforming friends at the shoot in Hollywood. â€œLike, you are living your fâ€”ing life.â€
