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.ÃÂ 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: Ã¢â¬ÅPeople try to make everyone something,Ã¢â¬Â Cyrus says. Ã¢â¬ÅYou can just be whatever you want to be.Ã¢â¬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,Ã¢â¬Â she says. Ã¢â¬ÅIf I was me now, I would have been like, Ã¢â¬ËFÃ¢â¬â you. Normal 14-year-olds have braces. IÃ¢â¬â¢m going to have braces on the show, so kids who have braces in real life know thatÃ¢â¬â¢s okay.Ã¢â¬â¢ But I didnÃ¢â¬â¢t have that in my mind then. I was coming from Nashville. My grandmaÃ¢â¬â¢s a beauty queen. I didnÃ¢â¬â¢t know.Ã¢â¬Â
On finding a sexual partner: Ã¢â¬ÅFÃ¢â¬âing is easy. You can find someone to fÃ¢â¬â in five seconds,Ã¢â¬Â she says. Ã¢â¬ÅWe want to find someone we can talk to. And be ourselves with. ThatÃ¢â¬â¢s fairly slim pickings.Ã¢â¬Â
On being yourself: Ã¢â¬ÅMaybe if youÃ¢â¬â¢re finally getting to be yourself, itÃ¢â¬â¢s more of a celebration,Ã¢â¬Â she says, surrounded by new gender-nonconforming friends at the shoot in Hollywood. Ã¢â¬ÅLike, you are living your fÃ¢â¬âing life.Ã¢â¬Â
