In a new interview, Miley Cyrus tells Time Magazine that she's fine being alone.
The artist - who was most recently engaged to Liam Hemsworth and who then dated Patrick Schwarzenegger for a few months - labels herself a “feminist” and says more people need to accept that it's okay to be single.
"There are times in my life where I've had boyfriends or girlfriends," Miley says.
"And there are times where I just love being with myself and don't want to give part of myself away to someone else.
"I think that's a new freedom for women. I don't know that my mother would have been able to be 22 and secure in being alone."
Cyrus is busy taking up a new cause these days, as she's established an organization meant to help LGBT youth.
While discussing this important issue, Miley has made headlines for admitting she hasn't always been involved in straight, heterosexual relationships.
She also sort of came out as a genderqueer, saying she didn't always "relate to what people would say defines a girl or a boy."
Now, via this same Time interview, Cyrus says her future "doesn't rely on having a partner." But if she did have a partner...
... well, it could be a boy or a girl.
"I never want to label myself! I am ready to love anyone that loves me for who I am! I am open," Cyrus said in a recent Facebook chat, adding a smiley face for emphasis.
