Miley Cyrus says Donald Trump personally called her following her controversial performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards to tell her how much he “loved it.”

Ms. Cyrus, who is hosting this year’s VMAs, told The New York Times that she “can’t believe” her performance was such a big deal back then, considering what she’s up to now.

“When you look at it now, it looks like I’m playing hopscotch,” she said. “Compared to what I do now, it looks like nothing. I can’t believe that was a big deal. It wasn’t shocking at all.”

“I was in the studio with Kanye [later] that night, and we watched it back and we didn’t say anything. He was like, ‘That was sick,’ whatever,” the 22-year-old continued. “We woke up the next day, and he was like, ‘Whoa.’ He called and said, ‘Turn on your TV.’ I was staying at the Trump Hotel and Donald Trump literally called and said, basically, ‘I know everyone’s talking about it, but I loved it.’ I had no idea anyone was talking about it yet.”

“People that I really loved and thought were my friends judged me for it,” Ms. Cyrus added.

The current Republican presidential candidate front-runner had a few things to say about Ms. Cyrus in 2013, right around the time of the VMAs. In September of that year, just a few weeks after Ms. Cyrus’ performance, Mr. Trump tweeted that she could “do much better” than Liam Hemsworth after the couple split up, Entertainment Weekly reported.

That same month, he wrote that Ms. Cyrus was “on a very triky [sic] and slippery path right now. The right moves will lead to greatness, the wrong moves to oblivion! GUIDANCE.”
