Miley Cyrus has formed a bond with Caitlyn Jenner.
“We’ve talked a lot about how you can never make every single person happy,” the singer says in the September 2015 issue of Marie Claire. “We always laugh about people saying she transitioned to be famous. Which is crazy. Caitlyn has to tell her story, because if she doesn’t, everyone else is going to tell it for her.”
Jenner first publicly identified as transgender in April, during a “20/20” special with Diane Sawyer. At the time, Cyrus tweeted her support for the former Olympian, using the name by which Jenner had previously been known.
Cyrus also painted three versions of Jenner’s Vanity Fair cover, each of which Jenner signed, that were auctioned off for charity at the amfAR Inspiration Gala New York in June. The pieces sold for $69,000, the New York Post reported.
