The twerking singer hinted that she might be bisexual while launching her new Happy Hippie Foundation to help homeless and LGBT [Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender] youth.
According to the Associated Press, Miley didn't elaborate on her comment but said she hoped to use her provocative image to promote more important issues in the future.
"No one should have to hide who they really are, no matter what his or her name, gender or status. That's why Happy Hippies are here to say that every life is valuable!" she said.
"The position I'm in, I feel like I've got a lot of power. But so many kids don't feel that way. They're under their parents' rule."
She went on, "When you have all eyes on you, what are you saying? And that's what I had to ask myself a lot. It's like, I know you're going to look at me more if my (breasts) are out, so look at me. And then I'm going to tell you about my foundation for an hour and totally hustle you."
Miley also admitted she struggled with traditional gender expectations when she was younger. She told Out magazine, "I didn't want to be a boy. I kind of wanted to be nothing. I don't relate to what people would say defines a girl or a boy, and I think that's what I had to understand: Being a girl isn't what I hate, it's the box that I get put into."
