Congratulations to Miley Cyrus on her just-launched Happy Hippie foundation which works to fight injustice facing homeless youth, LGBTQ youth and other vulnerable populations. Watch her emotional backyard session with Joan Jett, and make a contribution if you can.
Miley Cyrus has long been an outspoken advocate for being yourself. From dying her armpits pink to swinging ass-naked on her wrecking ball to her debut as a visual artist at the Jeremy Scott show last fall, whatever Miley does, the phrase “she’s just being Miley” echoes.
With her Disney days far behind her, Cyrus is using her voice and her platform (18.8 million Instagram followers) to support those for whom society makes it a little harder to just “be yourself.” With The Happy Hippie Foundation, launched with a partnership with Facebook (47 million likes), Miley will share updates and exclusive Backyard Sessions that encourage viewers to donate.
The first, which you can watch below, features Cyrus and Joan Jett in a duet of Jett’s song “Different,” an appropriate choice for the organization, which aims to “fight injustice facing homeless youth, LGBT youth and other vulnerable populations,” the website states.
In celebration of Cyrus’s commitment to individuality, a look back at all the many ways she’s just being Miley…and looking incredible doing just that.
