These are some classy ladies!”

The singer has always been open about who she is. Back in 2015, she spoke about being pansexual and not wanting to be put in a box. She’s been on a journey of understanding gender and sexuality, and she’s not afraid to speak up. 

Reportedly, in one of the interviews, Miley disclosed, “I always hated the word ‘bisexual,’ because that’s even putting me in a box. I don’t ever think about someone being a boy or someone being a girl.”
