Miley Cyrus says that Katy Perry is the friend that she’s known the longest in Hollywood and she even says that the song “I Kissed a Girl” is about her!
The 24-year-old singer opened up about her friendship with Katy, 32, while promoting her new single “Malibu” on WKTU’s Cubby and Carolina Show.
“She’s been a friend of mine for a really long time,” Miley said. “We were actually just realizing the other day that next year, we’ll have been friends for 10 years. I think that’s my friend that I’ve known the longest. Which is really, really weird!”
Miley met Katy for the first time back in 2008.
“When she came out with ‘I Kissed a Girl,’ I was doing the Hannah Montana movie, and I heard her on the radio. They said, ‘Who did you write that about?’ She said me!” Miley said. “I screamed and started freaking out, and then she asked me to go to the VMAs with her. That’s when I started doing my whole VMA controversy. I was like, ‘I’ll go with Katy Perry!’”
Miley says her mom Tish wouldn’t let her go alone so she came along too. “So, that’s how we met and we just stayed friends,” she said.
