Dolly’s goddaughter, a.k.a. Miley Cyrus, dropped the truth bomb on a recent Late Night with Seth Meyers appearance and shared the hilariously cute story behind it. If you caught Miley and Dolly’s Super Bowl LVI T-Mobile ad earlier this year, the pair joked with viewers to “Do It for the Phones” on behalf of the wireless provider.

“It was amazing because, you know, she was doing it for the phones,” Miley explained. “Yet every time I coordinate and kind of communicate with Dolly, it’s still through fax.”

“She’s rarely on the phone. Next time we have to ‘Do it for the fax machine.'” Miley went on to reveal how Dolly is still communicating with people (including famous people) by fax in the year 2022.

Essentially, Dolly will write a message to Miley via fax. And then, someone scans that fax, which is signed by Dolly, and then texts the scan to Miley. “She has a phone. She just doesn’t use it. I don’t think,” Miley explained. “I think someone uses it for her and does the fax machine through the phone.”

Miley also recalled a time where they worked on a song through similar old-school methods.

“She also made me a demo one time where she talks about being super high-tech,” she recalled. “But it was all through a cassette, which she voice memo’d onto a flip phone, which someone then put onto the iPhone, which then got sent to me.”

However, Miley isn’t bothered by it and instead embraces her “Aunt” Dolly’s quirky methods when it comes to creating songs.

“I’ve started to try and make my own letters because there’s something so amazing just about a connection. It’s just not casual,” she said. “You know that she took the time to get out, I guess, her typewriter.”
