Singer Miley Cyrus blasted President TrumpDonald John TrumpJimmy Carter: 'I hope there's an age limit' on presidency White House fires DHS general counsel: report Trump to cap California trip with visit to the border MORE as a “completely racist, sexist, hateful asshole” in a recent cover story interview with Vanity Fair.  

“You know, I said I would move away if he became president. We all said a bunch of shit we didn’t mean,” Cyrus said in reference to Trump in the interview released on Thursday.


“Because we really thought: Maybe people will listen,” she continued. “Maybe people actually realize how detrimental this will be to our f--king country if this happens. Obviously they didn’t.”

“But for me to move away—what the f--- is that going to change?” Cyrus went on to say in the interview. “As someone who is so proud of being an activist, am I going to feel proud of myself just running away from, and leaving everyone else here to live under, a completely racist, sexist, hateful asshole? You can’t leave everyone else to fend for themselves.”

She added later in the interview that “in this time, pop culture and politics are the same f---ing thing."

"Especially with the president that we have right now," she said. "We’ve made a celebrity our f---ing president. People listen to what celebrities have to say more than activists half the time. So, by having that platform, what the f--- are you going to say?”

Cyrus also referred to a previous moment she shared with the then-real estate mogul in 2013.

In the interview, the “Wrecking Ball” singer described receiving a call from Trump a day after her controversial 2013 MTV Video Music Awards performance.

She claimed Trump told her he “loved” the performance, for which Cyrus captured a slew headlines after twerking and gyrating with singer Robin Thicke on stage.

“I loved it,” Cyrus recalled Trump saying of the performance during her stay at Trump Tower in New York at the time.

The 26-year-old singer also discussed the call from Trump in a previous interview with The New York Times in August 2015. 

“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,” Cyrus said then.
