Who is Noah Cyrus dating? Singer sparks fury with racially charged post in Harry Styles's defense
Miley Cyrus's younger sister wrote on social media that Styles wore the dress 'better than any of u nappy ass heauxz' — a statement that many felt was alluded to conservative pundit Candace Owens
Singer Noah Cyrus has courted controversy for her choice of words while she defended singer Harry Styles's latest photoshoot for Vogue magazine. Harry did a photoshoot for the esteemed publication Vogue which was quite eccentric. The ‘One Direction’ star appeared in numerous lavish dresses and accessories that are deemed to be feminine and so drew backlash as well as praises for the unique shoot.
Since his photoshoot was splashed on social media, many notable personalities have come in Harry’s defense which includes Jameela Jamil, Zach Braff, and Olivia Wilde. Among those giving him a hard time was Conservative author and speaker Candace Owens, who did not hold back in criticizing the shoot when it first came out. When Harry expressed his joy at being part of the shoot, Owens had tweeted saying: "There is no society that can survive without strong men. The East knows this. In the West, the steady feminization of our men at the same time that Marxism is being taught to our children is not a coincidence. It is an outright attack. Bring back manly men."
Now on December 3, Harry gained support from singer Noah Cyrus as well. However, Miley Cyrus’s younger sister immediately got flogged on the Internet as she used racially charged language in defense of Harry's Vogue dress. She wrote on her Instagram story, that Harry wore the dress "better than any of u nappy ass heauxz" — a statement that many felt alluded to Owens, who is a Black woman and had criticized Harry’s photoshoot earlier.
While Noah thought she was standing in solidarity with Harry, she did not know that her poor choice of words could irk many and bring her severe criticism. After realizing the weight of her words, Noah took to her Instagram and issued an apology. She wrote that she did not know the history behind the term ‘heauxz’ that she used and apologized to all whom she inadvertently offended.“I am mortified that I used a term without knowing the context and history, but I know now and I am horrified and truly sorry,” she said in her Instagram apology story. “I will never use it again. Thank you for educating me. I in no way meant to offend anyone, I am so sorry.”
Despite her serving an immediate apology, some on the Internet are pointing out the bigger issues and implications of the singer using that term. On the other hand, many are still cornering her on the use of the term despite apologizing and seek to know the intent behind her choice of words. A user alleged, “Why is Noah Cyrus lying for? What else could nappy-headed hoes mean.” Another wrote, “Noah Cyrus saying she didn't know the "history" of the word is such a perfect example of non-black ppl freely messing around with black things with no repercussions until they finally trip up and now get a chance to play the 'I'm learning pls educate' me 'card'.”

Now that Noah has become the center of attention for all wrong reasons despite aiming to help Harry, here’s what we need to know about her.
Who is Noah Cyrus dating?
Singer Noah Cyrus might have spent her early days of her career in the shadow of her older sister, Miley Cyrus, however, she (Noah) has proven her talents with a Grammy Award nomination. The ‘Lonely’ singer secured her first Grammy nod in the Best New Artist category in 2020, alongside stars like Doja Cat, Megan Thee Stallion, and D Smoke. Besides singing, Noah has garnered media attention for her risk-taking fashion, her sentimental lyrics, and her past celebrity relationships. Here’s a look at whom she dated.
Noah's first relationship that was publicized was with musician Tanner Drayton, who goes by the stage name of Tanner Alexander. Together, the pair released a song named ‘Lately’ in 2018 and they got tattooed together in June of that year. However, their romance did not bloom and ended shortly in 2018 only.
After ending the romance with Drayton, Noah started a whirlwind of a love story with rapper Lil Xan (real name Diego Leanos). The pair began dating in June of 2018 when Lil Xan sent a DM to Noah asking her out. Later in 2018, the couple also graced MTV VMAs together and got pictured on the red carpet,but their romance was shortlived as well as the two split in September 2018 where they both accused the other of cheating as per Distractify. Lil Xan went a step further and reportedly alleged Noah of faking their relationship, however, he later apologized to Noah and the rest of the Cyrus family for the breakup. He did appear in public with Noah again in April of 2020, but it does not appear as if the two have reignited their relationship.
Currently, Noah is rumored to be dating YouTuber Tana Mongeau. As per reports, the two started their romance in the fall of 2019 by sporadically teasing about their relationship. However, the rumors died down shortly thereafter but speculations grew in September of 2020 when Tana referred to Noah as her "girlfriend." "I mean ofc [of course] I had to take a break from Instagram until she was my girlfriend again," the ‘Tana Turns 21’ star shared in an Instagram post on September 27 as she posted a photo of the two together at dinner indicating that the pair was in a relationship.
In response, Noah shared a photo of herself with some lovely gifts that had ‘love’ inscribed on them. She indicated that the presents were for rumored girlfriend Mongeau. Cyrus posted the photo on her Instagram grid with the caption, "I show up to your house with these.. Wyd?"
After such sneak peeks into their reported romance, during Pride Month, this year, Mongeau posted a picture with Noah and opened up about her sexuality."Some people call that pansexuality, everyone calls me bi, i personally don't find a need to label it all and sexuality is genderless to me & I'm so lucky to have this platform to speak openly about that." However, it is still not clear if Mongeau and Noah are still dating, but they are rumored to be one another’s love interests.
