Miley Cyrus On Life After Liam Hemsworth Breakup: “I Thought I Would Die Without A Boyfriend!”

Miley Cyrus went all fifty shades of gray, literally, for ELLE‘s May 2014 “Women In Music” issue.

The 21-year-old entertainer looked quite somber in silver-hued fashions from Saint Laurent, Christian Louboutin, and a sparkly head-to-toe Marc Jacobs outfit she wore on the cover. When the sterling-haired fox wasn’t pouting for the camera, she opened up to fashion phenom Tavi Gevinson about feminism, out-growing Disney, and ditching ex-fiance Liam Hemsworth.

“You know, I’m really thankful that I started on Disney,” she explained to the 15-year-old writer about her start on the television series Hannah Montana. “I got the most intense training. There’s times where I wish I could have just started as a new artist, but the world has kind of allowed me to do that. I feel really lucky—a lot of kid stars get all crazy or stuck in what they were, so they can’t actually become what they’re meant to be. When I went through a really intense breakup—you know, I was engaged—and when I was with him or when I was on Disney, the thing that gave me the most anxiety was not knowing what to do with myself when Disney wasn’t there to carry me anymore or if I didn’t have him. And now I’m free of both of those things, and I’m fine. Like, I lay in bed at night by myself and I’m totally okay, and that’s so much stronger than the person three years ago, who would have thought they would have died if they didn’t have a boyfriend.”

Miley, who is currently traveling across the U.S. on the Bangerz tour, also hopes her music will help to make her fans stronger.

“I have guys and girls that come out, and they’re like, ‘The only reason I’m able to admit that I’m gay is because you’ve made me feel like that’s okay.’ That is so intense, because that is a part of this generation—it wasn’t always accepted—and I feel like I am a big part of that change,” the “Wrecking Ball” singer said. “Or they know that I’ve struggled with depression, and that helped them get over theirs. That gives me a big purpose—a reason to wake up in the morning that’s bigger than to put on my fucking feathers and my little outfits.”

Besides inspiring the LGBT community, the singer hopes to eliminate the double standards set in the industry for female artists.

“I’m just about equality, period,” she says of her feminist views. “It’s not like, I’m a woman, women should be in charge! I just want there to be equality for everybody. I still don’t think we’re there 100 percent. I mean, guy rappers grab their crotch all fucking day and have hos around them, but no one talks about it. But if I grab my crotch and I have hot model bitches around me, I’m degrading women? I’m a woman—I should be able to have girls around me! But I’m part of the evolution of that. I hope.”
