Caitlyn Jenner appeared on Tuesday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” where she revealed that Aerosmith’s “Dude Looks Like A Lady” was her anthem when she was struggling with gender identity. Watch the full video below!

Earlier on Tuesday, the transgender reality star shared on Instagram a photo of herself and Tyler at a fundraiser. She captioned the post, “@iamstevent and I are working on our duet for ‘Dude Looks Like a Lady.’ One of my favorite songs!” When Kimmel asked the former Olympian about the picture, Jenner explained her excitement over meeting the Aerosmith frontman. She told the talk show host, “That was two nights ago. I was at a fundraiser in Minneapolis and he was the entertainment. I met him once briefly, years and years ago, but I’m sitting there and I got to go and say hi.”

Jenner continued, “So I go backstage after and I say to Steven, ‘I have had some really, really tough times in my life. For six years at one point I stayed in my house, and every once in a while I would sneak out, get dressed and drive around in the dark. I always used to take your song, ‘Dude Looks Like A Lady,’ and that became my theme song. Driving around in my little car with my little CD in there, whipping up the tunes and stuff. And I just wanted you to know that it made me feel good.'”

And when Kimmel asked how Tyler responded to Jenner’s story, she said, “He loved it. He hugged me and he said we’ve got to get together. And I said, you also ticked me off because you could wear your hair long, and society said I couldn’t wear my hair long!” Watch the full clip below!
