Miley Cyrus has claimed she is "genderless" and said she hopes it will become "the new normal".

The controversial pop star said: "I feel like everything and nothing and all at once ... I feel very genderless, I feel ageless".

"So I feel very much like there's no us and them, there's no me and you, I feel like I'm kind of just, I want to be everything and I want to be also kind of nothing ... hopefully that stops being weird", she added.

'Very Neutral'

Cyrus, who has previously described herself as "pansexual", made the comments on ITV's Lorraine program.

The remarks were not the first time the 24-year-old has claimed to be gender-neutral.

Last October, she told Variety magazine: "I don't ever think about someone being a boy or someone being a girl."

Wrong Message

"I feel very neutral", she added.

Cyrus has previously been criticized for sending children the wrong message through her revealing outfits and sexually explicit performances.

But in 2013, she told BBC Radio 1's "Newsbeat": "I feel like I'm one of the biggest feminists in the world because I tell women to not be scared of anything. I'm for anybody and anything, I don't care what you want to do, what you want to look like."

'6-Year-Old Girl"

Cyrus is not the first person to make claims about their chosen gender and age.

In 2015, a Canadian man who was married with seven children shared how he left his family and now "lives as if he is a 6-year-old girl."

Paul, who is in his 50s and calls himself Stefonknee Wolscht, lives in Toronto with friends whom he refers to as his "adoptive mommy and daddy," dresses in children's clothing and plays with their grandchildren.


Wolscht was 46 when he left his wife and family. He was homeless for a spell and attempted suicide on two occasions.

In an interview with a homosexual news website, he explained that he is living as a child in order to escape his past.

He told Daily Xtra: "In my mind I was never allowed to be a little girl so I'm filling that tank of little-girl experiences."

"By not acting my age, I don't have to deal with the reality that was my past, because it hurt," he added.

'Gender-Fluid Identity'

Earlier this year, the Family Policy Institute of Washington released a video showing students at the University of Washington responding to scenarios of "gender-fluid identity."
