Miley Cyrus: 'My First Kiss Was With a Girl'

Guess she liked it.

After Miley Cyrus’s guest appearance on RuPaul’s Drag Race, she joined RuPaul and Michelle Visage on their podcast, RuPaul: What’s the Tee with Michelle Visage, and revealed an interesting little tidbit: her first kiss was with a girl.

“When I was kind of growing up, being from the South, my first kiss was with a girl in middle school,” she said. “And no one could understand [that] in Nashville… so I had that relationship.”

It’s actually not all that surprising, considering how open Miley has been as an adult about being pansexual and the gender of a person not impacting her potential for romantic feelings towards them.

“Like, who gives a fuck if he’s a guy, if I’m a girl, or if he was a woman— who gives a fuck?” she recently declared of husband Liam Hemsworth in an interview with Vanity Fair.

Cyrus had previously spoken briefly to Variety about how her “first relationship was with a chick,” while saying she started realizing she didn’t want her sexuality or gender to be confined to one label when she was merely in fifth or sixth grade.

And RuPaul’s podcast gave her the opportunity to expand on her experience as a young person figuring out the world around them.

“I was one of the only kids on Disney that would come out and say that I supported all my gay friends,” she said. “No one really would say that, so that was always really important to me.”

Fortunately, the climate is slowly changing over at Disney, with stars like Rowan Blanchard of the late Girl Meets Worldcoming out as queer while still on the show, and Disney’s inclusion of an openly gay lead character on Andi Mack.
