#Miley Cyrus' 2016 speech for Variety on Friday might strike some political nerves. Using her usually brutally honest (and often unpredictable) methods, she showed her support for #LGBTQ homeless teens, and took a verbal jab at Republican Presidential nominee #Donald Trump.

Miley Cyrus' Variety luncheon speech spreads the word on her Happy Hippie Foundation

Creating the Happy Hippie Foundation, Miley intends to help teens who don't quite fit in due to their sexual preferences and gender identities. Vanity Fair says Miley recently came out as gender fluid herself, admitting that she never really wanted to be a specific gender.

“I don’t relate to what people would say defines a girl or a boy, and I think that’s what I had to understand: Being a girl isn’t what I hate, it’s the box that I get put into.”

Miley's outspoken honesty has shocked the world in recent years, especially when she took the stage at the 2013 VMAs to twerk against Robin Thicke during his performance. Fans of her "Hannah Montana" persona couldn't believe what they'd seen, and admittedly, it did make her statements on gender fluidity and other topics stand out more.

Had Miley Cyrus maintained her Disney-borne persona, the public might not have listened as closely. Even fellow singer Brian Warner (Marilyn Manson) has used shock value to get his message across, knowing that people listen more when you get their attention first.

Miley also pointed out, according to People, that she's been singled out for not being a good Christian example due to her public antics.

She replied that Christianity is about love, and they should get their facts straight.

Miley Cyrus used her speech at the 2016 Variety luncheon to reveal that she wants to break the stigma of LGBTQ youth being treated like outcasts to the point where they end up homeless.

How did Donald Trump fit into Miley Cyrus' 2016 speech on homeless LGBTQ youth?

The “Wrecking Ball” singer took a verbal jab at how power corrupts, an issue often forcing gay and lesbian teens into the streets. As an example, Miley mentioned the Republican nominee.

“And maybe it’s because of the villainous vibes that surround power, and the poor examples of how too many leaders abuse it — yes, that’s for Donald Trump.”

Miley Cyrus finished off her Variety speech by telling those gathered that if they feel they don't fit in, they should take that as a victory.
