Miley Cyrus covers the August issue of ELLE US, on newsstands July 23rd, and talks about her marriage, still being sexually attracted to women, the inspiration for her new album She is Miley Cyrus, climate change and refusing to hand down “a piece-of-sh*t planet” to her child.
Miley on her marriage, still being sexually attracted to women and not fitting into a stereotypical wife role: “I think it’s very confusing to people that I’m married. But my relationship is unique. And I don’t know that I would ever publicly allow people in there because it’s so complex, and modern, and new that I don’t think we’re in a place where people would get it. I mean, do people really think that I’m at home in a f**king apron cooking dinner? I’m in a hetero relationship, but I still am very sexually attracted to women. I made a partner decision. This is the person I feel has my back the most. I definitely don’t fit into a stereotypical wife role. I don’t even like that word.”
On the Woolsey fire, climate change and refusing to hand down “a piece-of-s**t planet” to her child: “With natural disasters, you don’t get a choice. You surrender. And nature’s female. When she’s angry, don’t f*** with her. That’s the way that I feel women are like right now. The earth is angry. We’ve been doing the same thing to the earth that we do to women. We just take and take and expect it to keep producing. And it’s exhausted. It can’t produce. We’re getting handed a piece-of-sh*t planet, and I refuse to hand that down to my child. Until I feel like my kid would live on an earth with fish in the water, I’m not bringing in another person to deal with that.”
Miley on the inspiration and meaning behind her new album She Is Miley Cyrus: “My record is called She Is Miley Cyrus. ‘She’ does not represent a gender. She is not just a woman. ‘She’ doesn’t refer to a vagina. She is a force of nature. She is power. She can be anything you want to be, therefore, she is everything. She is the super she. She is the she-ro. She is the She-E-O.” (source)

In her first feature since her split from long-time partner, Bradley Cooper, the notoriously private model Irina Shayk “gets real” for BAZAAR.com‘s Summer 2019 digital cover.
On perfection and natural beauty: “I’m not perfect. I have bad skin days and bad hair days. Sometimes I don’t look like a model. I’m just a real human being… If somebody wants to inject their lips because they feel bad, God bless them. I don’t judge anyone. But I always promote natural beauty because I think we live in this perfect world where everyone wants to be perfect. But I’m not perfect. Sometimes I have a double chin. Perfection doesn’t exist. I’m going to have wrinkles and I have wrinkles. You just have to accept the idea of aging and of bodies at every stage, and just celebrate it. In life we have to let it go and understand it’s a human process not to be perfect.”
On the public’s obsession with her private life: “I think it’s just human beings: if you cannot have it, you want to have it. There’s a curtain there, you want to open the curtain. It’s curiosity I guess.”
On marriage: “Do I believe in marriage? Yes, of course. I’m not the kind of person who is against it.”
On motherhood and remaining authentic to oneself: “You have to be really truly yourself for your kids, otherwise you’re living in a lie. Tell me one reason why, just because you’re a mother, that you need to wear a longer skirt. No! I don’t believe in that. I really don’t… Why should you have to change who you are and how you feel just because you become a mother? I’m like, tell me why. Tell me one reason! I don’t believe in that… I really believe if you love something, you can prioritize your time. [Motherhood] is just an addition to your life.” (source)
