In an interview with Howard Stern earlier this month, Cyrus shared how emojis are her language of love.
“I’m an emoji person,” said Cyrus. “So I just sent a bunch of hearts and the little cat with the heart eyes. I literally think I sent the cat with the heart eyes.”
It is unknown if Grande is a cat person (she reportedly adores dogs and kept the pet pig she adopted with Davidson), but we know she loved the kitty hearts message. According to Cyrus, Grande responded to her text with a single cloud emoji, which gives us “God Is A Woman” vibes. She interpreted the cloud as an acknowledgement. “I think she was saying, ‘I’m okay, and I’m here...Thank you for thinking of me.’ That’s what I think it meant,” said Cyrus.
Cyrus also joked that she was sorry not sorry about coming off as a flirt to Grande. “I thought it was slightly — maybe even kind of making her feel good — like maybe I was hitting on her a little bit...It felt like,‘Oh hey, someone loves you. If it’s not working, here I am.”
