As for the YouTube star first connected with Miley, she said the singer first contacted her on social media. "I've been a fan of her forever," she told us. "I connect with her on so many levels. She's a super creative person, she's very successful, she knows what she wants and she's a hustler. I love that about her. And at the end of the day [I love] her drive. I'm really am so inspired by her. I'm learning so much every day from her and I'm just really thankful that she picked me to work with."
Back in June, Miley photographed Gigi for her #InstaPride campaign, which strives to "confront stigmas by highlighting transgender and gender-expansive people in a series of portraits," according to Marie Claire. Miley told the mag at the time, "I became fascinated with her because she did videos before transitioning and then she went MIA for a while and then she came back transitioned as Gigi Gorgeous."
"It was incredible to see someone so confident," she continued. "That's what I think I get from her, and it's not just because she's beautiful. She has a confidence that comes from inside. She was beautiful before she was Gigi Gorgeous. She always had Gigi Gorgeous in her."
The two have not only worked together, they've also developed a friendship. Gigi told us Miley has given her great "nonverbal advice," adding that Miley is a "go with the flow kind of girl, but she takes charge at the end of the day."
"She's not hostile or anything crazy, she's polite and respectful," Gigi continued, adding that while she never judges anyone before she meets them, Miley "blew everything that I could have thought out of the water. She's so down to earth, so real and so cool."
Gigi kept mum on whether they had any future collaborations in the works, but said, "I would love to work with her for the rest of my life every day because she's such a cool person."
