Miley Cyrus is doubling down on support for the handsome homeless dude she let take her mic time at the VMA’s to discuss the plight of young people living in city shelters. Yesterday we learned that Jesse Helt had a warrant out for his arrest for something minor he skipped out on back in Oregon. Today, that he was living in a park in Los Angeles because he was having trouble getting modeling gigs in Hollywood and he was too proud to go back to Oregon and live with his parents. That’s actually kind of admirable.
He wanted to be in Los Angeles and he had opportunities and he took them, but you know, he’s had his ups and downs like anybody else. It was his choice, he was always welcome, he could always come back any time. If he needed help, I’d help him, we help one another. — Helt’s mom on her son, the unemployed male model
Gee, thanks mom for blowing a perfectly good handsome young white man lives in a bush story. Good looking 20-somethings really are the most misunderstood of the besieged classes.
Instead of just admitting that she and her handlers should have vetted their woe-monkey more before giving him the VMA stage and crying like you were eleven again and just losing your virginity to a Disney casting agent, Miley went on the attack . She Tweeted whole bunch of self-righteous jabs at people who live in houses and don’t feel sorry for failed Hollywood models living in the jacaranda:
Instead of putting young Richard Gere onstage, you should’ve had him pretend bang you in your next music video. He’d be famous and turning down jobs. You wouldn’t look like the spoiled girl who just learned that not everybody lives in large houses with slides that lead to the game room. Where the hell is Tish? She knows this crap.
