That time Miley Cyrus licked a piano for a really good cause

A few nights ago, Miley Cyrus received the Vanguard Award from the LGBT Center for the work she’s done with her Happy Hippie Foundation, which promotes the welfare of LGBT youth. In true Miley fashion, she couldn’t leave the stage without doing something that went viral.

To raise money for the LGBT Center, both she and Linda Perry auctioned off a white grand piano, but Cyrus added a little extra touch to up the value of the piece: she licked it. And it worked. The instrument ended up going for $50,000, according to Billboard. That’s $50,000 to benefit the LGBT community. Miley, your tongue is magic.

She also said a few inspiring words about the community and what lies ahead:

Hear, hear, Miley! We’re totally on board with your speech and the fact that you are willing to do whatever it takes to help those in need — even if that means licking a grand piano. You can watch her full acceptance speech below!
