Getting candid about her relationship with musician Cody Simpson who she started dating recently, Miley said that she is really thankful to him as he could help her fall in love once again in life. 

"I was just being like, I don't know, hardcore feminist vibes and just not allowing anyone in," she said during her livestream while telling people that good men still exist and one should not give up. She then added, "You don't have to be gay," while explaining that women can get what they want, they just have to find the right man.

Raves about romance

The 26-year-old singer got married to her lover Liam Hemsworth in 2018 after dating for about a decade. The couple announced their split in August this year after which Miley started dating a woman Kaitlynn Carter, with whom she broke up after a month. Cyrus said that she thought she had to become gay as all men are evil, which she later realised is actually not true. She said that after she stopped paying attention to men, she found the one right person. She said, "I've only ever met one, and he's on this live," while her beau smiled listening to her comment. The couple has been good friends for a long time, but had started dating recently. The couple has not shied away from showing their fondness for each other on various occasions. Netizens have often criticised her for moving on too quickly after splitting with husband Hemsworth and later with girlfriend Carter.
