Miley Cyrus describes herself as queer in a hetero marriage

Miley Cyrus is opening up about her marriage to Liam Hemsworth.

The singer told Vanity Fair that her union with Hemsworth was far from "old-fashioned" and more "new age".

Cyrus, who dated model Stella Maxwell during a break from Hemsworth, said she was redefining what sexuality and gender look like in a relationship.

"We're redefining, to be f**king frank, what it looks like for someone that's a queer person like myself to be in a hetero relationship," she said. "What I preach is: People fall in love with people, not gender, not looks, not whatever. What I'm in love with exists on almost a spiritual level. It has nothing to do with sexuality ... gender is a very small, almost irrelevant part of relationships."

"I wore a dress on my wedding day because I felt like it, I straightened my hair because I felt like it, but that doesn't make me become some instantly 'polite hetero lady'," she said.

The couple tied the know on December 23 at her Tennessee family home. Cyrus chose a ivory Vivienne Westwood gown, which is thought to have cost £11,000

The pair met while filming The Last Song in 2009 and then got engaged in 2012 before breaking up a year later.

In 2015 she dated model Stella Maxwell. Cyrus and Hemsworth got back together in 2016 before becoming engaged for a second time.
