Miley Cyrus wants to be called an "interesting lesbian".
The 'Wrecking Ball' hitmaker - who has been romantically linked with Kellan Lutz since her engagement to Liam Hemsworth ended - hit out at the abusive messages she receives on twitter, and is particularly unhappy with people branding her "ugly".
She tweeted: "I get called an ugly lesbian a lot more than one would think. Or maybe not.
"Can u at least call me an interesting lesbian. I hate the U word."
The 21-year-old star also revealed she has been feeling unwell for some time.
She wrote on the social networking website: "I've officially had a cough for over a month! Wtffffffff (sic)"
Miley recently said she had no regrets about getting engaged to Liam in June 2012.
She said: "I don't think I realized what 19 really is and I got engaged at 19.
"I definitely wouldn't change being engaged - it was so fun wearing a fat rock for a few years! - but now I just feel like I can actually be happy."
The former 'Hannah Montana' star also said she "was so scared of ever being alone" but now feels like she can face with world without 23-year-old Liam.
She added: "I think, conquering that fear, this year, was actually bigger than any other transition that I had, this entire year.
"I don't ever want to have to need someone again, where you feel like, without them, you can't be yourself."
