MILEY CYRUS EXPLAINS HER ‘PANSEXUALITY’ TO ELLE

When she’s not spinning around in flower-bedazzled denim on “The Voice” or posting selfies of her growing pet collection, Miley Cyrus can often be found thinking seriously about how to support the LGBT community through her Happy Hippie Foundation. Well, that and smoking weed, doing yoga and hiking. The singer covers the new issue of Elle and inside, she opens up about why she started her foundation (as well as her love for the aforementioned holy trinity of leisure). “I relate so much to it,” she says of the foundation, whose website says its mission is “to rally young people to fight injustice facing homeless youth, LGBTQ youth and other vulnerable populations.” In response, Miley revealed, “It’s very strange, because I’m not sexually confused in any way. I’m very much—the word is pansexual.” She went on to define that word. “That just means everyone,” Miley said. “It doesn’t stop at girl, boy, or if someone’s in a transition. I don’t see people ever for who they were before who they are right now. I think of who I was before who I am right now; that’s a transition in itself. Everyone is constantly transitioning. When there’s a thing you have to do, you have to do it. That’s how I got with [‘Saturday Night Live’]; every time I was like, Why am I here? I’m so scared. You’re about to be live!” Even performing sometimes feels like a dream, she says, and still throws her off. “My life feels so surreal,” Miley admits. “That’s why I’ve made a shtick of being me. Because being me is funny. I’ve made this weird character, and I think it’s really funny.”

NEIL PATRICK HARRIS WAS OFFERED MICHAEL STRAHAN’S SPOT ON ‘LIVE!’

Kelly Ripa might have avoided the Michael Strahan drama altogether … if only Neil Patrick Harris had said “yes” way back when. During a recent appearance at the 92nd Street Y in New York, the actor was asked about the “Live!” rumors that circulated after Michael left his post. Neil said he thought the job would be “superfun,” then added, “I have no interest at all in doing it all year long. It’s a hard show,” according to the New York Post. His hubby David Burtka jumped up at that point and said the producers had offered him the chair. Initially Neil said they hadn’t — then he changed his tune. “Well, before the [Strahan] chapter … it happened, we talked about the possibility,” he said. “They wanted to gauge my interest.”

TYGA GETS A MONEY-THEMED FISH TANK

Reality TV to the rescue. As Tyga continues to fight off creditors, a new show called “Tanked” has helped him decorate his house — with a money-themed aquarium. In a preview of the episode airing Friday, Sept. 30,Tyga explains (via E! News), “I wanted to do something like a bank vault. Something that symbolizes money, like racks all in the tank.” Asked if he means racks of ribs, Tyga cracks up laughing. Nope. “Racks — like money,” he says. Guess who now has a bank vaultt-themed fish tank? If only it came with enough cash to pay off the repo men and jewelers …

DONALD TRUMP CALLED KIM KARDASHIAN ‘A BIT LARGE’

Remember that time Donald Trump dissed Kim Kardashian for her weight? The Internet does. Us Weekly recently reposted an interview from 2013 when Kim was pregnant with her daughter in which the Donald was asked about her on “Showbiz Tonight.” “I’ve known her over the years. She’s really a nice person,” he said. He then followed that up with “She’s gotten a little bit large. I would say this, I don’t think you should dress like you weigh 120 pounds.” The reporter (being human) wanted to know why he said that and pointed out Kim “feels good about herself,” to which our current GOP nominee replied, “I think that’s great. If she feels good about herself, do it, Kim.” At least he’s consistent.

JENNIFER GARNER TEACHES HER KIDS BY EXAMPLE

If all goes as planned, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck’s three kids will grow up having learned the best way to get through life from their folks, “modern family” situation or not. In a new interview with “Today Parents” (via E! News), Jennifer explained she tries to remember the fact that her children look to her for examples of how to deal with life’s challenges. “I don’t think empathy is something you can drill in someone’s head. You have to have faith that while your kids can seem to be selfish and concerned only about the word ‘mine’ sometimes, overall, they are watching you really carefully. If you care about other people, they will, too,” she says.”I try to be the best version of myself and to have faith that they’re watching me as carefully when I do something right as they do when I roll through a stop sign.” She also takes care about the fact that kids “need [their parents’] focus” and attention. “It’s like when they were babies, and you knew they needed to burp, but they just wouldn’t. You want to say to them, ‘You would be so much happier if you would just burp!'” she recalls. “It’s the same when I am waiting for my kids to say something I know is bothering them. The trick now is just to be available — and in a chill way — to receive it when they finally do.”

MINKA KELLY, WILMER VALDERRAMA AND WILMER’S EX, MANDY MOORE ARE ‘ALL CLOSE

Mandy Moore isn’t doing much to quell rumors of a romance between Minka Kelly and Wilmer Valderrama. “We’re all close friends,” the actress told Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live” this week. Since Mandy dated Wilmer long before the Minka chatter kicked in, Andy pressed to find out if things were uncomfortable now. ‘No it’s not weird and I love them both,” Mandy said, according to the Daily Mail. “[Wilmer and I are] like very, very close friends … he was my first boyfriend when I was 15. We can still be friends.” She added that she’s not bothered by the public interest in her personal life. “I think it comes with the territory,” she said. “It’s a small price to pay for the extraordinary life that I live … I think if they’re paying attention, that must mean there’s something [I’m doing right].”

HARRY STYLES HAS ‘NO COMPLAINTS OR REGRETS’ ABOUT GOING SOLO

With One Direction an ever more distant memory, Harry Styles sounds excited about his future. “I would never say we’ll never do anything again, but it’s good for us to be exploring different things,” he tells Paul McCartney in the new issue of Another Man magazine (via E! News). “Maybe at some point everyone will want to do something again, but it’s better if it happens naturally. Like, ‘Hey, we all really want to do something again.’ If that were to happen it would be amazing. I would never rule that out. It’s the most important, greatest thing that’s ever happened to me, being in that band.” He goes on to tell the Beatle-turned solo star: “The nice thing for me is that I’m not coming away from the band feeling like I wasn’t able to do what I wanted to do. I loved it and it was what I wanted but I’m enjoying writing at the moment; trying new things. When Paul agrees that “after you’ve left something big and famous and now you’re actually doing your own thing, it can be great,” Harry says that no matter what, he’ll always be grateful for One Direction, new career or not. “I’m enjoying being in the studio and doing this movie and I’m not too bothered about going on vacation. I feel pretty lucky right now,” Harry admits. “I feel good about everything that happened with the band. I have no complaints or regrets.”
