When she walked onstage, Kimmel said it’s “unusual” that he’s now meeting her as a woman after having met her in the past before her transition.

“Is it strange for you to look in the mirror and go, ‘Hey, now I’m who I wanted to be’?” he asked Jenner.

“No. I wake up in the morning and I have a feeling of peace,” she responded. Jenner talked about news of her transition being “hammered all over the media for the longest time” and added, “In fact, guys like you making some jokes…”

“Now he’s going to apologize,” joked Jenner. “But I accept your apology.” She mentioned she also gave Jimmy Fallon a “real hard time” for mocking her as well.

While visiting with Kimmel,Jenneralso talked about theInstagram post she just put up of herself with Steven Tyler, whom she met at a fundraiser in Minneapolis.

Jenner said she told Tyler that his song “Dude (Looks Like a Lady)” was her “theme song” before she came out, and that she used to drive around in her car listening to it and it made her feel good.

Jenner received backlash from the trans community for calling the song her “favorite song,” as it is often used to mock the transgender community. For example, Fox News in 2013 was criticized for playing the song over a photo of Chelsea Manning, who had recently come out as trans.

Watch below to see Jenner talk about meeting Tyler, and about why she voted for Donald Trump.
