On Sunday night, the pop star spoke to her 100 million followers during a live session, telling them that "there are good men out there" and not to "give up. You don't have to be gay. There are good people with dicks out there. You've just got to find them." It seemed that Cyrus was implying that women choose to be gay rather than dealing with men, which is not how sexuality works.
"I always thought I had to be gay because I thought all guys were evil but it's not true," Cyrus continued. "There are good people out there that just happen to have dicks."
Now the singer has clarified her comments on her Instagram story. "I was talking shit about sucky guys," she wrote, "but let me be clear, YOU don't CHOOSE your sexuality."
"You are born as you are," she continued. "It has always been my priority to protect the LGBTQ community. I am part of."
Cyrus came out as gender fluid and pansexual in 2015, and spoke earlier this year about still being queer despite having married a man.
"I'm in a hetero relationship, but I still am very sexually attracted to women," Cyrus told Elleat the time. "People become vegetarian for health reasons, but bacon is still fucking good, and I know that. I made a partner decision. This is the person I feel has my back the most."
