Miley Cyrus, Homeless Jesse Helt, and the Moonman for Sale

If the name Jesse Helt rings a bell, you will definitely want to hear just what it is he has been up to recently. For those of you who do not know this name, a little background story is in order. So, everybody remembers when Miley Cyrus went off the deep end and traded in her flannel shirt, cowgirl boots, and long locks for virtually no clothing and a buzzed blonde hairstyle, but few realize just how out there she really was. Sure, licking a hammer was bad enough, but she brought a homeless man to the VMAs in 2014. Okay, what is wrong with that, you ask? Well, it is definitely a nice gesture, but many thought it was a bit strange for her to find a random homeless man to bring to the show, but even more found it ridiculous that she allowed him to accept her award for Video of the Year, which she earned for her hit, Wrecking Ball.

Anyway, Helt accepted the award and nobody heard much from him since then. Recently, however, the homeless man took to eBay to sell his Moonman award. Clearly, the award did not mean that much to the man who once gave a speech about homeless teens seen by millions, but what is seemingly a slap in the face is the fact that he is selling this once in a lifetime award for only $10,100. Despite his studio apartment and sporty new haircut, one can only wonder what he plans to do the chunk of change for the Moonman if he should receive it. The most important question of all, though, is whether or not Miley is happy about this sale.
