Sunday is right around the corner, which means Miley Cyrus is gearing up to take the stage at the 2015 MTV VMAs!
We can hardly contain our excitement!
The songstress has been making sure to promote the shiz out of her new hosting gig, but we think her article from the New York Times really had her opening up!

Not only did she basically shade Nicki Minaj following that VMAs snub, but Miley also goes back in time to talk her jaw-dropping 2013 VMAs performance.
And there's more!
She even calls out ANOTHER another pop star, so read on for the top FIVE most interesting quotes…
1. On the Video Music Awards in 2013:
"Everything I've ever done has been true to me at that minute. Even down to my TV show [Hannah Montana] — when I started I was 12 years old, and that was like a dream to me. So that was my truth at that moment. Me coming out of that teddy bear, to me, wasn't just a teddy bear. My dad always explained it to me that you step into your happiness. That's kind of like what I was doing. When I broke down the bear belly, I was really breaking out — my show ended, and then I didn't really work for two years. That's when I did my most self-exploration. [The performance] was kind of going into this way of saying, 'I'm just going to do what will make me happy.' At that moment, that's what really made me happy."
Wow. Who knew that teddy bear held so much meaning??
2. Kanye West and Donald Trump loved that performance:
"When you look at it now, it looks like I'm playing hopscotch. Compared to what I do now, it looks like nothing. I can't believe that was a big deal. It wasn't shocking at all.
I was in the studio with Kanye [later] that night, and we watched it back and we didn't say anything. He was like, 'That was sick,' whatever. We woke up the next day, and he was like, 'Whoa.' He called and said, 'Turn on your TV.' I was staying at the Trump Hotel and 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."
We definitely didn't picture Trump to be one of her supporters, but hey, you learn something new every day!
3. And here is where she spills the truth about Robin Thicke:
"I didn't really know him too much before, and I don't really know him now. It was funny, because I got so much of the heat for it, but that's just being a woman. He acted like he didn't know that was going to happen. You were in rehearsals! You knew exactly what was going to happen. And he was actually the one that approved my outfit, so I thought that was very funny. He wanted me as naked as possible, because that's how his video was. It was very much a collaboration. My part — We Can't Stop — was all me. But when it went into Blurred Lines, that was his performance."
Oof. Robin totally pointed the foam finger at Miley for that performance! Well, now everyone knows what really went down!
4. On how she even got the hosting gig this year:
"Van Toffler, who runs MTV, it was his last year. He's leaving, and so he can't get fired. He was like, 'I want to do something crazy — I want you to host the V.M.A.s, because I want that to be my last shebang.' It's like Ferris Bueller's Day Off."
Guess that's how you know it's going to be good!!
5. Is she well-prepped for Sunday?? Well, speaking on the nominees:
"I like what Kendrick does. I don't really know many of these. I don't really listen to this music. I'm probably the most disconnected host in history. I don't have TV. I have Apple TV. I'm so the 22-year-old that's like, 'Who's TV?'
So, does this have you any more excited for the big award show??
We honestly can't wait to see what goes down!!
