Singer Miley Cyrus is okay with people
thinking she looks like a lesbian.
In an interview with the Toronto
Sun, Cyrus, 20, said that she has been criticized for cutting
her hair short.
“I just cut my hair and then it
really changed 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,” Cyrus said.
“Everyone said I was a lesbian but
I'm like, 'Being a lesbian isn't a bad thing. So if you think I look
like 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
tom boy … 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 sexists. 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.”
