Miley Cyrus is "literally open to every single thing that is consenting"
Paper just published a cover story on Miley Cyrus, "perhaps her generation's most unlikely social activist, and also one of its most powerful" with photos by Paola Kudacki. Amanda Petrusich's profile digs into Miley's past, her fluid identity, "leaving the Disney cocoon" to make pop music and then, making weirder pop music, despite her camp's concerns ("They're like, 'Don't make it too weird, don't make it avant-garde; you can't go from Miley to Björk!'"). Miley tells Paper:
I am literally open to every single thing that is consenting and doesn't involve an animal and everyone is of age. 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.
Miley also spoke about her Happy Hippie Foundation which raises funds and awareness for homeless and LGBT youth. The foundation was in part inspired by the suicide of transgender teen Leelah Alcorn in 2014 who was forced into "conversion therapy."
