OH. MY. GOD.
Woah Miley is pulling all the stops on this magazine cover. This isn't a surprise coming from the now famous magazine, Paper Magazine. It's been making headlines across the world as it broke the internet months ago when Kim Kardashian bared all with her butt being the focus of the shoot. Paper Magazine seems innovative yet provocative continuously breaking the boundaries in what is socially acceptable in today's media.
But Miley... you came in like a 'Wrecking Ball' for sure...
We CANNNN'T STOP... but really, Miley isn't slowing down.
The shoot is inspired by Leelah Alcorn who was a transgendered teen girl the committed suicide in late 2014 after being forced to go through "conversion therapy" making headlines across the country. Miley has founded a new foundation called the Happy Hippie Foundation designed to raise funds and awareness for homeless and LGBT youth.
Here's a small excerpt from the article that has been making Miley Cyrus the top trend in the United States regarding her sexuality and gender identity :
" She says she has come to consider her own sexuality -- even her own gender identification -- fluid. "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," she says. "I don't relate to being boy or girl, and I don't have to have my partner relate to boy or girl." She says she's had romantic entanglements with women that were just as serious as the ones (Liam Hemsworth, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Nick Jonas) that ended up in Us Weekly. "I've had that," she admits. "But people never really looked at it, and I never brought it into the spotlight."
She recalls confessing to her mother, at age 14, that she had romantic feelings toward women. "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 says. "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." These days, Cyrus only wants to grant others the same clemency. "
