Miley: You can tweet I'm a lesbian, but don't call me ugly

Miley Cyrus hates being abused as an "ugly lesbian" on twitter and wishes people could find more "interesting" ways to insult her.

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 realised 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."
