Fans have suggested that Miley Cyrus’ song, 'She's Not Him' is about Stella Maxwell, with whom Cyrus was rumored to be in a brief casual relationship with back in 2015. Maxwell, a Victoria’s Secret model, has been dating Kristen Stewart since 2016.
Previously, Cyrus opened up about her pansexuality in a Billboard cover story, and an interview with Variety. The singer explained her discomfort with being labeled bisexual, as she never thought of her own sexuality in gendered terms. “My whole life, I didn’t understand my own gender and my own sexuality,” explained Cyrus. “I always hated the word ‘bisexual,’ because that’s even putting me in a box. I don’t ever think about someone being a boy or someone being a girl.”
Her new song, “She’s Not Him,” takes an approach to pansexual love in a way that has yet to appear in mainstream music. In this song, her eventual return to a male does not negate her relationship with a woman.
The song sits quite low on the track list of Younger Now, but the choice to include this story remains significant. Younger Now is Cyrus’ most understated musical project yet, and while not packed with the pop bangers fans have gotten used to, it allows “She’s Not Him” to stand out as an authentic ode to love that was not meant to last. The pansexual love story is not a gimmick - it’s an honest account.
