We always gripe about celebs who have so much money that we can’t stand it. Especially when that same money doesn’t find its way back to our communities. Well, get those hands ready! Miley Cyrus has just launched a foundation, Happy Hippie, that brings awareness to homeless youth, LGBT youth, and other vulnerable populations. In an interview with Out.com she said:
“I’m fighting for people I don’t know, but it’s also a fight for people I do know, and people I’m close to and love.”
Well, that’s sweet. #Awwww
“...[Homelessness] is something that we see every single day. It’s like the birds chirping - we just ignore it because we’re so used to it.”
She has a point though…
Happy Hippie apparel can be found on her fanfire site: www.mileycyrus.fanfire.com . They are reasonably priced between $25 - $50.00.
You know your fav star is serious when they start dropping new music videos titled, “The Backyard Sessions”. And yes, they were filmed in her backyard...at her home. Now I know you might be thinking eh! but you will be pleased to know that the music is nothing short of magic. The sultry tunes will be exclusively released on the foundation’s website and Facebook page. What is even more touching is that one of the song’s, “No Freedom”, is dedicated to Leelah Alcorn. For those who don’t know, she is the transgender teen who committed suicide in Ohio last December.
“Listened to this song a lot in December when Leelah passed away. These lyrics relate so perfectly to Happy HIppie and our message to the world!”
Miley sure knows how to show love to her fans. #KudosForMiley

My take: Check out Miley’s foundation. I always love when superstars come down from their pedestals and acknowledge the struggles of the regular world that the rest of us deal with daily. I mean, what more could you ask for? In addition, I actually love all of her released singles. You get a feel of her father's’ musical influence while still getting that rugged teen spirited Miley.
