Tongues were wagging at the MTV VMAs yesterday when Miley Cyrus handed her acceptance speech over to a young blonde man.

She accompanied him to the foot of the stage and then sent him on his way alone… And the world held its breath, waiting to see what he would say into the microphone.

The awkward, yet beautiful looking man was clearly nervous and he stuttered through a speech which had Miley in tears.

“I have survived in shelters all over this city. I’ve cleaned your hotel rooms, I’ve been an extra in your movies. I’ve been an extra in your life. Though may have been invisible to you on the streets I have a lot of the same dreams that brought many of you here tonight.”

Then he urged everyone to visit Miley’s facebook page to make a donation to the Hollywood homeless shelter for young people.

So who is he?


His name is Jesse.

He’s from Oregon, but has wound up in LA.

Jesse is very private and has requested his surname remain unavailable.

After the show,  Jesse and Miley went to In-N-Out Burger to celebrate.

Miley, we salute your selfless act.
