Its good to see there is still a good girl inside her somewhere. Parents, rejoice!

Miley Cyrus won Video of the Year at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, but she didn’t accept the Moonman trophy herself. Instead, Cyrus sent a young man named Jesse to pick up the award and advocate on the behalf the United States’ homeless youth population in the process.

“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,” Jesse, whose last name is still unknown at this time, read from a note card. “I 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. Though I may have been invisible to you on the streets, I have a lot of the same dreams that brought many of you here tonight.”
