Have you ever dreamed of a having a Moonman from the MTV Video Music Awards? Do you fantasize about how nice it would look next to your Bath and Body Works candles on your fireplace mantel? Who doesn't? Even if you aren't in the music biz, your dream can become a reality. If you feel like dipping into your child's college fund, or not being able to pay rent for months, you can bid on a special Moonman on eBay. Don't worry; it's for a good cause.
Think back to the 2014 MTV VMA's for a second. Katy Perry wore a Britney Spears-inspired denim dress, and Miley Cyrus took Jesse Helt as her date. Jesse was a mystery to everyone before the VMA's, but his identity as Miley's pal was revealed during the event.
ebay: Jesse Helt
If you recall, then-homeless Jesse took the spotlight at the VMA's when he accepted Miley's award for Video of the Year. He accepted the award on behalf of "1.6 million runaways and homeless youth in the United States who are starving and lost and scared for their lives." It was quite the powerful acceptance speech, as a seemingly proud Miley looked on with teary eyes. Miley has been involved with My Friend's Place, an organization in Los Angeles that supports those affected by homelessness. In other words, her choice to have Jesse accept the award was a really touching move. The power duo went out to celebrate the moment at In-N-Out, because, as most people know, there is no better way to party than with a bunch of burgers.
These days, according to TMZ, Helt has moved into a studio apartment and is expecting a baby in a few short months. Talk about a total transformation. The money he makes from the sale of his statue is going towards prepping for his new arrival. As of right now, the current bid is a nice $10,300, and the statue, which features both Miley and Jesse's name, is in mint condition. You can see Helt holding the Moonman with gloves, so the lucky recipient gets it fingerprint-free. Happy bidding!
