In case you missed the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards last night, Miley Cyrus brought a cute blonde homeless dude as her date, and after the show, the duo went to dinner at In-N-Out in Hollywood.
When Miley arrived at the VMAs and chatted with Lucy Hale and Sway on the red carpet, she hinted that she had a surprise, telling the hosts, "There's something that I'm doing that is really special that I'm really excited about. I'm not going to say anything because I don't want it to get canned. I think it is going to leave a different kind of impression." Miley posted the pic above and wrote, "me and my hero at in n out celebratin #myfriendsplace #mtvvmas2014."
When the pop star won Video of the Year for "Wrecking Ball," she sent her pal, Jesse, up onstage for her. "I am accepting this award for the 1.6 million runaways and homeless youth in the United States who are starving, lost and scared for their lives right now. I know this because I'm one of those people," he told the audience. "I've survived in shelters all over the city. I've cleaned your hotel rooms, I've been an extra in your movies, I've been an extra in your life. Although I've been invisible to you I have a lot of the same dreams that have brought me to you tonight."
"Los Angeles entertainment capital has the largest population of homeless youth in America. The music industry will make over $7 billion dollars this year and outside these doors is 54,000 human beings who have no place to call home." Miley looked like she was about to burst into tears during the speech, and at the tail end of it, Jesse asked the audience and viewers alike to visit Cyrus' Facebook page to "make a powerful change in the world." Miley then posted a video of herself talking about why she got involved with this particular cause later.
In case you missed it:
One person Miley wasn't feeling too supportive of, however, was singer Ed Sheeran. The two were sitting in the same row in the audience, but when he went to the stage to accept the award for Best Male Video for "Sing," she refused to high five him, and mouthed "a**hole" as he walked by.
Maybe she's still pissed that he isn't a fan of her twerking? In September 2013, Sheeran chatted with The Mirror and slammed Cyrus "It’s a stripper’s move," he said of Cyrus' antics. "If I had a daughter of mine, I wouldn’t want her twerking. When I first heard 'Wrecking Ball,' I thought it was a brilliant song. But the video distracts too much from it."
