Miley Cyrus Jesse MTV VMAs

Miley Cyrus won the MTV VMA award for Video Of The Year for “Wrecking Ball,” and she accepted the award in a very special way. Miley sent a formerly homeless man named Jesse to the stage to accept the award on her behalf.

Jesse took to the stage with a speech about homeless youth and what everyone can do to help. Miley sat at the side of the stage crying as Jesse made his speech.

Miley had this to say:

I’m just getting started, and I want to make sure my fans are part of helping me to give back and make an impact on this issue — we all have the power to make change happen.
