Morning Brew – Miley’s new album has a song about lesbian sex

Good morning!

Miley Cyrus talks about her identity and new album with the New York Times. Her track “Bang Me Box” is about sex with a woman.

“I feel very gender-fluid. For a long time I didn’t understand my own sexuality. I would get really frustrated and think I’d never understand what I am, because I can’t even figure out if I’m feeling more like a girl or boy. It took me talking to enough trans people to realize that I didn’t ever have to decide on one.”

Pope Francis blessed Francesca Pardi, an Italian lesbian children’s author whose books had been banned from public schools. She wrote on her Facebook page:

Fact one: I received a letter that was written on behalf of Pope Francis. Fact two: the Vatican has confirmed to me that my letter had been read. Fact three: I was told that the gift of the books and the letter were a delicate gesture and that they appreciated the sentiments.  Fact four: it was expressed that we continue our activities in the service of the younger generation and dissemination of human and Christian values. Fact five: it is a private expression of respect for us and for our business. Fact six: Meri and I have received the apostolic blessing. These are the facts.  The rest are interpretations.”
