Miley Cyrus tells Twitter trolls: Don’t call me ugly… but I’m fine with lesbian

Miley Cyrus has made a desperate plea for online trolls to stop calling her ‘ugly’ – but insists she doesn’t mind being called a lesbian.

The Wrecking Ball star, 21, took to Twitter to explain what she has been through and to appeal to followers to treat her nicely.

‘I get called an ugly lesbian a lot more than one would think. Or maybe not,’ her tweet began. ‘Can u atleast call me an interesting lesbian. I hate the U word,’ she went on.

It appeared the former Disney star was trying to find solace in the words of Britney Spears as she also mentioned on Twitter that she was listening to a number of the singer’s tunes.

‘”Sometimes” – @britneyspears on repeat,’ she mentioned in one tweet, before later referencing lyrics to another Britney tune called I Will Be There.

Both former child stars have made frequent statements of support to one another and Cyrus recently raised eyebrows when she attended Spears’ Vegas show and locked lips with a female dancer.
