Miley Cyrus has always been an open book. While some celebrities prefer to play coy in interviews and keep their cards cemented squarely to their chests, Cyrus remains outspoken, whether it’s about her politics, her past with Disney, or her opinions on the current state of music. It’s what makes her an artist that fans feel they can relate to, even if the child star-turned-music phenom has spent her entire life in the spotlight, a place not many people can relate to being in.

In her new interview with Elle, Cyrus continues to be forthcoming, this time discussing her untraditional marriage to actor Liam Hemsworth, her impressive charity work with the Happy Hippie organization, and the moment she realized she could no longer play her on-screen Disney character Hannah Montana. And yes, sex played a big part in that moment.

ON MARRIAGE

Cyrus married her longtime boyfriend Liam Hemsworth in December 2018 in an intimate ceremony at the couple’s ranch in Tennessee. Cyrus, who defines herself as bisexual, says that entering a heterosexual marriage doesn’t mean she’s no longer attracted to women. “I’m in a hetero relationship, but I still am very sexually attracted to women. People become vegetarian for health reasons, but bacon is still fucking good, and I know that. I made a partner decision. This is the person I feel has my back the most. I definitely don’t fit into a stereotypical wife role. I don’t even like that word.”

ON BUCKING TRADITIONAL GENDER ROLES

Though Cyrus and Hemsworth are husband and wife, the popstar says that the tradition ends there, with the two finding a newer, more modern approach to the institution of marriage. “I think it’s very confusing to people that I’m married. But my relationship is unique. And I don’t know that I would ever publicly allow people in there because it’s so complex, and modern, and new that I don’t think we’re in a place where people would get it. I mean, do people really think that I’m at home in a fucking apron cooking dinner?”

ON BEING DONE WITH HANNAH MONTANA

At the age of 12, Cyrus became a household name as the lead in the Disney series Hannah Montana. The show brought her international fame, but as Cyrus told Elle, she knew the moment she had reached the point of being done with playing the role. “I did once I was 18 because it felt ridiculous. The minute I had sex, I was kind of like, I can’t put the fucking wig on again. It got weird,” says Cyrus. “One time I went backstage at Disneyland, and Peter Pan was smoking a cigarette. And I was like, ‘That’s me. That’s the kind of dreams I’m crushing.’ That’s how everyone felt with the bong video, but I’m not a Disney mascot. I’m a person.”

ON COMING TO TERMS WITH HANNAH MONTANA

Although Cyrus spent years running from her squeaky-clean Disney album (see: Bangerz album), she said she’s now made peace with the role that made her famous. “Yeah, I feel like I’m just not ashamed of that anymore. It’s pretty cool when you hear Cardi B was listening to Hannah Montana when she was in high school. That shit makes me happy.”

ON HER BLACK MIRROR APPEARANCE

On the latest season of Black Mirror, Cyrus starred as popstar Ashley O, a role she said she had no choice but to do. “They gave me the script and were like, ‘Let us know if you’re interested.’ And I read it and was like, ‘It’s not even if I’m interested or not. It’s just that no one else can play this because this is my life. Like, you just took my life,’” said Cyrus. “The character is me. They twisted it up the way they always do, but the industry is already pretty dark. And at times, I’ve definitely felt like Ashley O. I still do. Making this record, I felt like Ashley O at times.”


ON PARENTING

Cyrus didn’t explicitly rule out parenthood, but acknowledged that like many millennials, she doesn’t feel comfortable bringing a child into the world in its current state. “We’ve been doing the same thing to the earth that we do to women. We just take and take and expect it to keep producing. And it’s exhausted. It can’t produce. We’re getting handed a piece-of-shit planet, and I refuse to hand that down to my child. Until I feel like my kid would live on an earth with fish in the water, I’m not bringing in another person to deal with that.”

ON HER CHARITY WORK AND KARMA

Cyrus founded the Happy Hippie foundation in 2014 to help homeless youth, particularly LGBTQ youth, and talked about some of the incredible work the organization has been doing. The singer notes that seeing talented and creative youth living on the streets while Donald Trump sits in the White House is proof that karma isn’t real. “If you have a lot of money and you did a lot of shady shit, you’re going to win. That doesn’t mean that at some point someone’s not going to take you down. But I just don’t believe that everyone gets what they deserve. I know a lot of amazing people through Happy Hippie who live on the street—artists who are super-talented who’ve never gotten a break. I fucking know that karma isn’t real.”
