Miley Cyrus Bites Back Against the “Ugly Lesbian” Comments
In the months leading up to her failed relationship with ex-fiance Liam Hemsworth, as well as the months following, the 21-year-old singer’s received messages claiming that she’s homosexual. She’s responded in the past, saying (via Huffington Post) “Everyone said I was a lesbian but I’m like, ‘Being a lesbian isn’t a bad thing.’ So if you think I look like I’m a lesbian, I’m not offended. You can call me much worse. I’ve been called much worse. Being a lesbian is a compliment more than what else they call me.”
What she doesn’t appreciate, though, is a certain word preceding lesbian:
I get called an ugly lesbian a lot more than one would think. Or maybe not. Can u atleast call me an interesting lesbian. I hate the U word.
