Was there something in the air at last night’s VMAs?
Just in case Beyonce’s emotional acceptance speech didn’t provide enough tears for you, Miley Cyrus also got emosh as her date for the night, homeless youth Jesse, accepted the Video Of The Year award on her behalf.
The 21-year-old popstar made us all reach for the sick bucket at last year’s ceremony when she strutted around the stage in a nude leotard, stimulated sex with both Robin Thicke AND a foam finger, and her tongue made a bid for freedom.
However, she decided to turn this year’s event into much more of a political statement, all while showing off her softer, ‘real-tears-in-the-Wrecking-Ball-video’ side.
Miley sent the internet into a frenzy when she shared a snap of herself and Jesse prior to the awards, with everybody speculating whether the mystery man was a new boyfriend.
However, when Miley was named winner of the Video Of The Year award, for Wrecking Ball, obvz, Jesse accepted the moonman on her behalf and revealed his true identity.
Taking to the stage he said: “My name is Jesse and I am accepting this award on behalf of 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 am one of these people.”
Asking for fans to help make a difference by joining Miley’s campaign on her Facebook page, Jesse went on to rather poetically say: “A dream you dream alone is only a dream, but a dream you dream together is reality.”
All while Miley was seen blubbing in the background.
Miley took to her MazSight page to share a variety of snaps of herself and Jesse throughout the night, calling him her “favourite dude ever” and rounding off the night with a photo of the two of them in fast food chain In-N-Out paper hats and the caption: “Me and my hero at in and out celebrating.”
It is unclear how the two met, or how Miley selected Jesse out of the 1.6million homeless youths to be her date, but it is no doubt through her involvement with Hollywood organisation My Friend’s Place, that aims to help people like Jesse.
See haters? She’s not so bad after all.
Despite all of the tears and charity, Miley did more than tug at our heartstrings last night as she also provided us with our FAVOURITE reaction shot of the ceremony.
Proving that she is still the same old Miley Cyrus that we all know and love, she seemingly could not hide her displeasure when Taylor Swift took to the stage for a bouncing performance of her newest single ‘Shake It Off’:
Looking undeniably stunned, Miley was no doubt confused by the lack of Robin Thicke, foam fingers, and sick-inducing dance moves.
Basically, we think that Miley is wondering why Tay Tay opted to be more like this:
And less like this:
We have no idea either, Miley.
But we have to say, we’re kind of thankful for it.
