Miley Cyrus Won't Consider Becoming a Mother Right Now - Here's Why

Miley Cyrus Won't Consider Becoming a Mother Right Now - Here's Why

Miley Cyrus graces the cover of Elle magazine’s August 2019 issue, on newsstands July 23.

Here’s what the 26-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag…

On her marriage to Liam Hemsworth, 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 the prospect of becoming a mom right now: “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.”

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.”

On the expectations society puts on women and loving yourself first: “We’re expected to keep the planet populated. And when that isn’t a part of our plan or our purpose, there is so much judgment and anger that they try to make and change laws to force it upon you—even if you become pregnant in a violent situation. If you don’t want children, people feel sorry for you, like you’re a cold, heartless b**ch who’s not capable of love. Why are we trained that love means putting yourself second and those you love first? If you love yourself, then what? You come first.”

    less pot before interview. way less. half of this is ridiculous.

  • DEADPOOL

    I like her stance on the planet and I agree, Im not having kids because the future is just too horrific. I dont want children to deal with what I have to as it is. To condemn anyone to a future where elephants and rhinos are extinct is not a world worth inheriting. I blame my parents and my grandparents generation.

    They never cared about us much less about the children we might have had if they had. It was all ‘greed is good’ to them and unchecked exploitation capitalism.

    SHE is a true millennial moron.

    I have to say I’m surprised by how thoughtful her answers are. It seems like she finally has some real wisdom to share instead of the fake-deep nonsense she always used to spout off in interviews.
