In light of National Coming Out Day, a new interview has been released where the Hannah Montana alum talks about how her first real relationship was with a girl. This is turning heads because fans have always thought her first relationship was with Nick Jonas when the pair were in their early teen years.

"My whole life, I didn’t understand my own gender and my own sexuality," she said. "My eyes started opening in the fifth or sixth grade."

That's when she started dating, and the first person she ever dated was a girl. "My first relationship in my life was with a chick," Cyrus revealed.

But telling her parents was a challenge. "I grew up in a very religious Southern family. The universe has always given me the power to know I’ll be OK. Even at that time, when my parents didn’t understand, I just felt that one day they are going to understand.”

Now, at age 23, the Wrecking Ball hitmaker, who is in a relationship with Liam Hemsworth, doesn't identify as straight, lesbian, or bisexual. “I never related to loving being a girl. And then, being a boy didn’t sound fun to me. I think the LGBTQ alphabet could continue forever. But there’s a “P” that should happen, for ‘pansexual,’" she says.

"Once I understood my gender more, which was unassigned, then I understood my sexuality more," she continues. "I was like, “Oh, that’s why I don’t feel straight and I don’t feel gay. It’s because I’m not.”

These days, there’s one thing that Miley is very clear about, and that’s how happy and in love she is with her fiancee Liam Hemsworth, 26. As HollywoodLife.com exclusively told you on Sept. 6, the two are “both in a really great space together right now and are really in love.” We’re just anxiously counting down until the big wedding day!

In her interview, Miley also talked emotions and how taxing being on The Voice can be. Miley told Variety she cries every time she has to kick someone off the show. One girl leaving the show was particularly tough for Miley and her mom.

"On The Voice, this young girl started crying when she left, because I’m the reason she came out. My mom started crying," Miley said. "She was like, 'I’m so sorry about the way I was when you were that age and coming out.' She never understood me until she saw that girl who couldn’t be herself. It was very cool."
