Miley Cyrus is open to “everything that’s legal”.

The Wrecking Ball singer has become known for her suggestive stage performances and flashing plenty of flesh. And in a new interview with Paper magazine, she not only posed nude, but revealed all about her sexuality too.

“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,” she said. “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 was previously engaged to Hunger Games actor Liam Hemsworth and most recently dated Patrick Schwarzenegger. But she has also been photographed on occasions kissing female friends. And the singer admits it was hard to tell her mother Tish that she does have feelings for women too.

“I remember telling her I admire women in a different way. And she asked me what that meant. And I said, I love them. I love them like I love boys,” she recalled. “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.”

It isn’t the first time the former Hannah Montana star has addressed her sexual preference. Last month she told the Associated Press that she never wanted to “label” herself.
