Even while self-isolating, Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato know how to entertain their fans.
The two pop stars shared their chat, logging in from their respective homes and going live on Instagram.
Cyrus delighted fans by revealing she’d be hosting a daily Instagram Live show, titled “Bright Minded”, in which she and special guests share their thoughts on how to “bring light to a dark time” during her period of self-isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Monday, the “Wrecking Ball” singer revealed that Lovato would be joining her the following day.
“I am totally freaking out and I think my fans and followers will be doing the same,” she told fans, declaring that “‘Bright Minded Live With Miley’ just went to a whole new level” with Lovato’s inclusion.
True to her word, she and Lovato hunkered down on Tuesday for a freewheeling conversation, discussing everything from struggles with body image to how they cope with negative thoughts.
During one part of the discussion, the duo spoke about the immediate connection they felt when they first met.
“We connected then because we just saw something in each other. Maybe it was spirituality or maybe it was just our hearts. I don’t know but, ummm…” said Lovato.
“Or maybe we were just gay as f**k!” Cyrus blurted out, causing Lovato to collapse in laughter.
Cyrus later shared a photo of herself bopping along to one of Lovato’s songs. “Demi is the G.O.A.T.” she declared, writing in the caption, “Lovatic for life.”
Cyrus also spoke about dealing with body-shaming after her VMAs performance with Robin Thicke back in 2013.
She insisted she didn’t wear shorts for three years after being compared to a “turkey.”
Cyrus said, “I basically went through two or three years where I wouldn’t wear shorts. I stopped wearing skirts on stage, all this s**t because after the VMAs and I had on my cute little nude bodysuit, everyone started comparing me to a turkey and putting a turkey in my outfit.”
She added, according to Capital FM: “I was just so skinny and so pasty and they kept putting me next to this turkey, and I was feeling so bad on myself that I did not wear a bikini for, like, two years and no one thought that that would ever make me feel some type of way.
“I think what was so hard about it was my brand has always been about being so unapologetically myself and being confident, and the worst thing that I would feel like I would be to my fans is lying or a fraud.”
“Bright Minded: Live with Miley” can be seen on Instagram Live weekdays at 8:30 a.m. ET/11:30 a.m. PT on her Instagram page.
