Miley Cyrus opened up about children and when she plans on having them with husband Liam Hemsworth.
The "Mother's Daughter" singer covers August's issue of ELLE, in which she explains why she's waiting for people to take climate change seriously before starting a family. The 26-year-old pop star explained she doesn't want to bring another person into this "piece-of-s--t" planet if things don't change.
"Weâve been doing the same thing to the earth that we do to women," Cyrus told the magazine. "We just take and take and expect it to keep producing. And itâs exhausted. It canât produce."
"Weâre getting handed a piece-of-shit planet, and I refuse to hand that down to my child," she continued. "Until I feel like my kid would live on an earth with fish in the water, Iâm not bringing in another person to deal with that."
âElsewhere in her interview, Cyrus spoke about the societal expectations that are placed on women.
âWeâre expected to keep the planet populated,â she explained. âAnd when that isnât a part of our plan or our purpose, there is so much judgment and anger that they try to make and change laws to force it upon youâeven if you become pregnant in a violent situation. If you donât want children, people feel sorry for you, like youâre a cold, heartless b--ch whoâs not capable of love. Why are we trained that love means putting yourself second and those you love first? If you love yourself, then what? You come first."
