Miley Cyrus is hosting this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, which, you may or may not be aware, airs this Sunday. In honor of the event, she did an interview with the New York Times, in which she reveals that future two-term president Donald Trump personally called her up to say how much he loved her much-derided 2013 VMA performance with a man named Robin Thicke.

Miley says:

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. 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.

Donald Trump loved something garish and grotesque. Crazy.

In the interview, Miley Cyrus also said dumb things about Nicki Minaj, who is opening the awards, if that’s more your thing.
