A heart of gold.
Miley Cyrus has a heart of gold.
The pop star dropped by Ellen this week and revealed she’s donating half-a-million dollars to Hurricane Harvey Relief efforts to support the people of Houston, TX, whose lives have been uprooted from the devastation of the flooding. The thought of losing everything reduces Miley to tears.
“It’ll make me cry, so I can’t really—” she begins, but there was no stopping the emotion. “I can’t really talk about it. I don’t know why it makes me so upset… I couldn’t fake it,” she continued. “My grandma sitting here, my mom’s here and I go home to my seven dogs and if I didn’t have that anymore it’d just be really hard. So I’m really happy to help any way that I can,” she adds. “And I hope people understand and can put themselves in those people’s shoes and just know what it feels like to have everything taken away from you.”
There’s a lot of darkness in the world, so it’s great to see young person like Miley use her star power for good. Watch the tender moment below:
