'Wrecking Ball' hitmaker Miley Cyrus was awarded the Video of the Year prize at the MTV Video Music Awards last night (24.08.14), and she let her homeless friend Jesse accept it on her behalf.

The 'Wrecking Ball' singer was given the Video of the Year gong at the ceremony in Los Angeles, but 22-year-old Jesse was invited to accept the honour on her behalf. An in emotional speech, he said: ''I am accepting this award for 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'm one of those people. I've 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. ''Although I've been invisible to you I have a lot of the same dreams that have brought me to you tonight.''

He then directed fans to visit Miley's official Facebook page, where a statement was posted encouraging people to help ''end youth homelessness''. In a statement, she wrote: ''Help me raise awareness and funds to end youth homelessness! ''This is just the beginning for me, but we're going to get started now by focusing on My Friend's Place, a homeless center for young people in Hollywood.''
