Singer Miley Cyrus has described her sexuality – and her gender identity – as fluid.

In a cover story for Paper, Cyrus, the 22-year-old daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, recounts coming out bisexual to her mother, Tish Cyrus, at age 14.

“I remember telling [my mother] I admire women in a different way,” she said. “And she asked me what that meant. And I said, I love them. I love them like I love boys. And it was so hard for her to understand. She didn't want me to be judged and she didn't want me to go to hell. But she believes in me more than she believes in any god. I just asked for her to accept me. And she has.”

“I am literally open to every single thing that is consenting and doesn't involve an animal and everyone is of age,” Cyrus told the magazine. “Everything that's legal, I'm down with. Yo, I'm down with any adult – anyone over the age of 18 who is down to love me.”

“I don't relate to being boy or girl, and I don't have to have my partner relate to boy or girl,” she said.

Cyrus added that her romantic relationships with women have been just as serious as those she's had with men.

“I've had that, but people never really looked at it, and I never brought it into the spotlight,” Cyrus added.
