The 'Wrecking Ball' singer said she "always thought she had to be gay" because "all guys were evil", but not anymore.
"You don't have to be gay, there are good people with d**ks out there," she told her followers, urging them not to "give up".
"You've just got to find them. You've got to find a d**k that's not a d**k, you know."
Fresh from her split with ex-husband Liam Hemsworth, Cyrus said she'd only ever met one "good" man, and she wasn't referring to her former partner of a decade.
"There are good people out there that just happen to have d**ks. I've only ever met one, and he's on this live."
Cyrus later attempted to backtrack on her comments about being gay, tweeting: "I was talking shit about sucky guys, but let me be clear, YOU don't CHOOSE your sexuality.
"You are born as you are. It has always been my priority to protect the LGBTQ community I am a part of."
Simpson and Cyrus have been flaunting their relationship on social media with a hail of selfies since they got together earlier this month.
"Miss you babe," Simpson told Cyrus during the conversation.
Cyrus and Hemsworth officially called off their 10-year-long relationship in August. Hemsworth has kept a low profile on social media, but has been spotted with a new girlfriend, actress Maddison Brown.
