'So I wanted to say that I came to your concert when I was 11, and I told you that I wore a plaid skirt and UGGs to the show because you wore a plaid skirt and UGGs, and from the nosebleed seats I was hoping that you would notice me and be like: "Hey, girl, nice UGGs,"' Miley dished.

'I don't know what I was thinking, but I was obsessed with your T-shirt and it was bedazzled and it said Nashville, and I immediately went and bought a bedazzler and I stayed up all night jeweling everything that I owned,' added the Tennessee native.

'And then I flew to LA like almost immediately so I could audition for Disney, and I ended up getting the role, but the only reason I wanted it was so I could do whatever you did,' confessed the ex of Liam Hemsworth.

'And so really I don't even think I gave a s*** about being an actress or a singer. I was just gonna copy you no matter what. So, I just wanna say, you know, thank you again for like just inspiring me and I would never be sitting here and being able to be a light if it wasn't for you and you kind of showing me how to do that.'
