Miley Cyrus Piano Licking Helps Raise $50K For LGBT Charity

Singer Miley Cyrus, famous for sticking her tongue out, licked a piano and sold it for an eye-popping price – all for charity.

Cyrus was receiving the Vanguard Award from the LGBT Center in honor of the work she’s done with her Happy Hippie Foundation to promote the welfare of gay kids when she took a turn towards the unusual at the charity event.

While helping another singer, Linda Perry, auction off a white grand piano, Cyrus decided to lick the instrument in order to up its value. It appears to have worked, as the piano ended up going for $50,000.

After accepting the award, the pop singer said:

I want all of you to know that I feel beyond grateful to be in a room full of so many…people who care so much about others because unfortunately that is way too rare in the world that we live in today. I’m thinking of tonight not as celebrating what we’ve already done but what we’re doing and what we’re going to do in the future.

The piano had been donated by Orange is the New Black star Ruby Rose, and it had been signed by several other stars. Bidding opened at $10,000. Cyrus was asked to do whatever she could to raise the value of the item. Using her infamous tongue, that’s exactly what she did.

Cyrus has been doing selfless acts lately, also helping her ex, Liam Hemsworth, adopt a “giant puppy.”

Cyrus helped the Hunger Games star get connected with Wylder’s Holistic Pet Center so her former fiance could adopt a 6-month old dog named Dora. Hemsworth thanked Cyrus via Instagram as he posed with the large pup.

Cyrus is a noted animal lover who even got a tattoo to honor one of her pet who died last year.
