I stopped wearing skirts on stage, all this shit 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 said. “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 worse thing that I would feel like I would be to my fans is lying or a fraud,” she continued.
Lovato told Cyrus she wished she had known what was going on. “First of all, I’m so sad that you went through that, and I had no idea,” she said. “I wish I could’ve been there, but I didn’t know and I feel like we’ve gone through times where we’re closer and then distant—and that’s fine, that’s what friends do.
The “Can’t Be Tamed” singer then told Lovato, “Life is moving so fast that it’s usually hard to slow ourselves down and appreciate people in our lives, and you’ve been that person for me for so many years and we’ve been friends for so long.
