Miley Cyrus: I don't need labels

Miley Cyrus doesn't worry about labels anymore.

The 'Wrecking Ball' hitmaker - who previously referred to herself as "gender-fluid" - praised the Los Angeles LGBT Centre for opening her eyes to being a human whose "feelings change just like this weather".

Addressing the crowd at the Los Angeles LGBT Centre's 46th Anniversary Gala, she said: "The first day that I got to visit you all is a day that I never will forget. And that's because given the opportunity to sit in one of the support groups I walked away with a feeling of self-love that I have never been able to even give myself before.

"Because, you know my life until that point, I was subconsciously convinced that I had to label myself. Because everything in our life has to have a name. Everything in our life is something but I'm not a thing. We're not a thing. We're humans with feelings that change just like this weather - which we've gotta do something about, and I'm not alone."

The 23-year-old singer also praised the centre for "setting [her] free".

She added: "I was so moved when I first heard someone sitting beside me say, 'Some days I wake up and I'm the masculine version of myself and some days I wake up and I'm the feminine version of myself. And that's totally okay. And the LGBT Centre had the key to the lock on my cage and they set me free."
