Once again, Miley Cyrus is letting us know that she’s very far-removed from the cookie cutter molds of Hannah Montana. In a recent interview with People magazine, Cyrus revealed that she learned she was bisexual at the age of fourteen. The first person the now 22-year-old musician told about her personal discovery was her mother, Tish. Cyrus states that she told her mother she “admire[d] women in a different way” and “love[d] them like [she] love[d] boys.” This is, of course, a great way to summarize who Cyrus is. Her mother didn’t feel that it was so great.

Cyrus admits that her parents, Tish and country singer Billy Ray, are conservative, so anything other than strictly heterosexual would become a bone of contention. Back in 2006, when Cyrus came out to her mother, that was the case. Apparently, her mother had a hard time understanding what her teenage daughter was telling her, and she was afraid that her daughter would be judged poorly or be sent to hell. But after awhile, Cyrus’ mother learned to completely accept her daughter as she is.

In the interview, Cyrus also revealed that her romantic relationships have been with both women and men. We’ve heard about her relationships with Liam Hemsworth and Patrick Schwarzenegger (especially her engagement to the former), but we haven’t heard a great deal or anything about Cyrus’ female, romantic relationships. The singer can give a reason for that.

“People never really looked at it, and I never brought it into the spotlight,” the interview reads.

Cyrus also states that her sexuality is fluid, and she’s open to anyone over the age of 18 who is willing to love her. She also launched the Happy Hippie Foundation last month, an organization that helps LGBTQ and homeless youths. She certainly doesn’t sound like the Leave It to Beaver-esque Hannah Montana anymore, but that’s certainly a good thing.
