The 60-year old star singer Marie Osmond shares her story of experiencing sexuality issues when she was younger, on the show "The Talk", after discussing her thoughts on Miley Cyrus’ controversial gay comments of herself.
On Sunday, Cyrus said "There are good men out there guys, don’t give up, you don’t have to be gay, there are good people with (penises) out there, you just got to find them."
Osmond also reveals that she also experienced the same issues as a child, when she was about 8 or 9 years old, saying she "actually thought she was gay" as well.
"And the reason is because I had been sexually abused to the point that men, they made me sick," she continues.
But even still, she recalls that she had her "great brothers” as well as an "amazing father", that made her life more positive despite it all.
"Truly, they changed my opinion of men, which made me feel that it was something I was going through," she said. "So I'm not saying anything about anybody, I'm saying that with her statement and my life personally, that changed the way I looked at myself."
Miley Cyrus’s remark also faced quite a few dissatisfied qualms from a few users. She then also added on her Twitter to clarify a few comments last Monday on her NSFW tweet:
"I was talking (expletive) about (guys), but let me be clear, YOU don't CHOOSE your sexuality. You are born as you are. It has always been my priority to protect the LGBTQ community I am a part of," while adding a rainbow emoji on the end of her tweet.
A critic had responded: "A stupid message, from a stupid person, to idiots who think they 'have to' become gay because a gender disappoints them. That's a stupid narrative encouraging the illusion that it's a choice and a flimsy button."
Miley Cyrus is the founder of Happy Hippie Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to LGBT youth and other vulnerable communities.
