Miley Cyrus isn’t offended by rumours that she’s a lesbian – in fact she’s quite flattered.

The We Can’t Stop singer faced speculation about her sexuality when she unveiled her edgy new look, having cut off her long locks and bleached her short cropped hair.

But Miley doesn’t mind people thinking she’s gay.

‘Everyone said I was a lesbian but I’m like, “Being a lesbian isn’t a bad thing. So if you think I look like I’m a lesbian, I’m not offended. You can call me much worse,”‘ says Miley, 20.

‘Being a lesbian is a compliment more than what else they call me.

‘People think short hair, they think tomboy… and I’ve obviously done the opposite ’cause when I cut my hair, I did my first Maxim cover where I got No 1 [in their annual hot list].

‘And it wasn’t about me being the sexiest. It was about the fans voting. But it’s something I loved. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Maxim cover with a girl with short hair.’

Miley, who is engaged to The Hunger Games actor Liam Hemsworth, loves her pixie crop and is shocked by how much controversy it’s attracted.

‘No one would have planned a haircut to change my life,’ the singer tells the Toronto Sun.

‘There’s something about having no hair that it screams being confident.

‘And I think especially because people like to put people in a box, I mean the names I’ve been called since I cut my hair.’
