The funds go to the Amfar charity, which supports AIDS research and HIV prevention
Miley Cyrus has auctioned off artwork based on Caitlyn Jenner‘s recent Vanity Fair cover, raising money for an AIDS charity.
Jenner, who is Kim Kardashian’s step parent, recently completed her transition from male to female, appearing on the front cover of the US magazine’s July issue. The Amfar charity, which supports AIDS research and HIV prevention, hosted a gala in New York on Tuesday (June 16). Cyrus gave a speech at the event and sold her art pieces (which you can see below) for $69,000 (£43,000).
During the auction, Cyrus reportedly told the audience: “My left boob is awkwardly bigger than my right one, and I’ll show you the left one if we can get it to $69,000… all right — we’re at $65,000 — what about $69,000? Sixty-nine. I’ll clean your house. Naked.”
Cosmopolitan report that the singer said during her speech: “There are so many people around the world right now that deserve this recognition,” she said. “And they’ve dedicated their lives to finding a cure … and by receiving this award tonight, I promise to continue to fight along with such an industrious army for a cure for this epidemic.”
Miley Cyrus recently gave a revealing interview to Paper Magazine, in which she claims to have come out as bisexual to her mother aged 14. Speaking about the time she told her mum she was interested in girls as well as boys, Cyrus said: “I remember telling her I admire women in a different way. And she asked me what that meant. And I said, I love them. I love them like I love boys. And it was so hard for her to understand. She didn’t want me to be judged and she didn’t want me to go to hell. But she believes in me more than she believes in any god. I just asked for her to accept me. And she has.”
