"Just knowing it was something that I should have [already] done," he said about what drove him to speak out. "But I was [previously] in a position where I had to worry about family and friends and how they would react. But in the past year, I’m on a new level, so it doesn’t really matter, I guess."
"And, also just how it would be good for the youngins listening to me right now, who are going to have to go through stuff like this in the future, to know that it's all right," he added.
"It's crazy, it's crazy" Cyrus marveled. "Again, the people took this song and they made it their own, you know. It's just been a heck of a ride and it's been a lot of fun. Seeing Lil Nas take the stage just now, I mean, he's electric."
