Former Republican presidential candidate John McCain’s daughter Meghan told Playboy in an interview that she is straight, single and comes ‘from a family of whiskey drinkers’.
She also talked about life on the 2008 campaign trail where she nearly overdosed on Xanax and jumped four dress sizes because of a diet of Starbucks and candy bars.
“I’m not a lesbian, if that’s what you’re asking. I’d be the first person to tell the world I was gay. I’m not private about anything. I think you should live how you should live. But I’m strictly dickly. I can’t help it. I love sex and I love men,” the Daily Mail quoted her as telling Playboy.
The outspoken 27-year-old political commentator discussed a wide range of issues, from her love of whiskey and shotguns to her distaste for Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol, who bashed Meghan in her book after the two spent time together during their parents’ ill-fated presidential campaign.
Meghan also talked at length about her ‘party girl’ image.
“What am I supposed to do, stay in and read a book? I come from a family of whiskey drinkers. My brothers like to drink and have a good time. It’s America, man. There’s nothing wrong with going out and listening to music and having a little Jack and Coke,” she said.
Though her mother’s family has been the long-time owners of a beer distributor, Meghan claims to have had a very low-key social life prior to hitting college. She only started dating once she moved to New York to attend Columbia University.
The blonde was the centre of a firestorm after she tweeted a picture of herself at home wearing a low-cut tank top and holding an Andy Warhol book beside her in October 2009.
However, she was undeterred by the backlash and had responded to the criticism on Twitter.
“So I took a fun picture not thinking anything about what I was wearing but apparently anything other than a pantsuit I am a slut, this is why I have been considering deleting my twitter account, what once was fun now just seems like a vessel for harassment,” she had tweeted.
