During the chat, Miley opened up about what she learned about herself and using her platform to give back to the community after the response she got at the 2013 MTV VMAs.

“I really woke up to that during the VMAs in 2013, because I realized how much attention could be on me for such a silly reason. I was a sexy bear. I mean, doesn’t everyone when they’re in their 20s dress as a sexy bear at some point? I wasn’t doing anything that different than, like, ya know, probably one of the college Halloween parties,” she recalled.

“The idea that I can create so much noise…but it’s only focused on me, it’s only focused on my performance. It doesn’t feel like there’s a greater purpose. And I realized the power of my platform and how many people I could get talking. And, I’m like, what if this talking then turned into conversations? Come up with healthy debating, people being heard. Just kind of redirecting some of the focus,” she continued.

“Is it really that big of a deal that I came and got naked, dressed as a teddy bear? We were shooting the VMAs in LA, coming out of Staples Center, and I live in one of the capitals of the most homelessness in any other city in America. It felt backwards. It felt wrong.”

Miley just dedicated a cover of a song to her “future ex-husband.”
