At Sunday night's 2014 Video Music Awards, Miley Cyrus pulled a stunt that was far more unexpected than her Robin Thicke twerk-fest of the previous year.

After winning the Video of the Year award, Miley gave the stage to Jesse Helt - a 22-year-old homeless man who proceeded to give a stirring speech about the plight of impoverished Americans.

There's just one problem: Jesse's family claims he was never homeless and is welcome to return to Oregon to live with them, should he ever decide to give up on his male modeling career in LA.

"He wanted to be in Los Angeles," said Jesse's mother, Linda Helt, in an interview with The Daily Mail,  "He had opportunities and he took them, but he had his ups and downs like anyone else."

"It was his choice. He was always welcome. He could always come back at any time. If he needed help, I'd help him."

For the second consecutive year, Miley Cyrus made headlines at the MTV Video Music Awards.

This time around, though, Miley didn't Twerk, abuse a foam finger or even perform on stage at all.

Instead, she used her Video of the Year victory to shine a spotlight on the issue of homelessness, inviting a special guest named Jesse as her date to the ceremony and having him give a speech on her behalf.

"I am accepting this award for the 1.6 million runaways and homeless youth in the United States who are starving, lost and scared for their lives right now," Jesse told the crowd, helping Cyrus raise awareness for her new fundraising campaign for My Friends Place, a homeless center in Hollywood.

Miley has received some flak for what some perceive to be a self-serving, exploitive act... but she explained her motivation in a chat with Ryan Seacrest this morning.

The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards have come and gone, providing plenty of memorable moments from the red carpet to the big stage at the Forum in Inglewood.

From Taylor Swift's red carpet prediction of her own terrible dancing (she delivered) to Blue Ivy and Beyonce showing us all how it's done, this night had it all.

Amber Rose's VMA dress turned heads (as did Demi Lovato's), Ariana and Big Sean were caught holding hands and Common paid tribute to Michael Brown.

As expected, we saw Nicki Minaj Twerking until the cows came home (and Usher sampling the goods), the Kardashians looked bored to tears, and Lorde?

Lorde was Lorde. Awkward, talented Lorde.

Did you miss the ceremony? Want to see all of the aforementioned highlights and more in just two minutes? Let's break down the 2014 MTV VMAs in GIFs!

For the second year in a row, Miley Cyrus shocked viewers of the MTV Video Music Awards last night. 

Of course, this year's jaw-dropping moment couldn't have been more different from the infamous Miley and Robin Thicke performance that drew the ire of the Parents Television Council in 2013.

Rather than gracing the stage with another twerking teddy bears routine, Miley showed her more thoughtful side last night when she turned the mic over to a 22-year-old homeless man named Jesse after winning the award for video of the year.

Cyrus claims she was simply trying to call attention to the issue of homelessness and use her time in the spotlight to do some good. Critics of the gesture, however, believe the pop star exploited a struggling young man for the sake of her own vanity:

What a difference one year makes.

At the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, Miley Cyrus stole every headline by Twerking alongside Robin Thicke and forever dirtying foam fingers in the eyes of viewers around the globe.

At the 2014 ceremony, however, Miley won Video of the Year for "Wrecking Ball," but didn't even take the stage to accept the trophy.

Instead, she walked up with a 22-year old named Jesse, who told the crowd he was one of "1.6 million runaways and homeless youth in the United States who are starving and lost and scared for their lives."

He explained that the music industry will make $7 billion this year, while they honor themselves at major events... with thousands of poverty-stricken individuals sitting right outside the theater's doors.

He talked of fundraising campaign created by Cyrus that will benefit a drop-in service center in Hollywood she's been visiting as of late and asked fans to visit Miley's Facebook page for more.

It was a surprising, emotional few moments that you can view here:

Remember when MTV (music television) actually used to play music videos on TV? Yeah, we do too. Pour one out for the good ol' days...

After three years of airing 'round-the-clock music, MTV unleashed a phenomenon known as Video Music Awards upon the world in 1984.

The idea? To celebrate the artists that brought our favorite tunes to life on the small screen and intersperse said awards with live performances from those very artists.

That was probably where MTV went wrong. Or very, very right.

What happened after that first very crazy VMA show in 1984 when Madonna's "Like a Virgin" took on new life was that the ante was summarily upped.

Every musical act to come would need to bring their A-Game if they'd make headlines the next morning. Plenty of them, from Madge to Miley, managed to do just fine.

In honor of the 30th MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night, let's take a walk down memory lane to relive the 17 craziest moments in VMA history ...

Well, now we know who is officially Queen of the Twerk.

Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" music video has broken the record for the most views in 24 hours on VEVO, knocking Miley Cyrus and her “Wrecking Ball” from the top spot.

VEVO announced yesterday that "Anaconda" has been 19.6 million times in 24 hours, compared to Cyrus' previous record of 12.3 million video views. 

Earlier this month, Minaj threw some shade at Cyrus after Miley appeared to have mocked Nicki's latest cover art.

For many years, in many different ways, Miley Cyrus made it clear that she was no longer Hannah Montana.

She posed sort of provocatively. She dropped all kinds of comments. She released more adult music.

But it wasn't until the 2013 Video Music Awards that fans fully saw the true nature of this new Miley, as she took to the stage alongside Robin Thicke... and made sure no one ever looked at a foam finger in the same way again.

In honor of Flashback Friday and of the 2014 Video Music Awards airing this Sunday on MTV, we're taking a look back at the Miley Cyrus performance that changed everything and we're asking:

Can anything possibly top it this year?!?

Attack of the Foam Finger!

In America, Miley Cyrus is free to share photos of her five-foot bongs and of herself peeing in the woods until her heart is content.

But the rules are very different in the Dominican Republic and that nation has now made headlines for banning Cyrus from performing there.

The young artist had been scheduled to take her Bangerz tour to the capital of Santo Domingo on September 13.

Yes, Miley Cyrus, we know: you shave your crotch. Please put it away now.

The Dominican Republic government commission, however, released a statement yesterday that says Cyrus often "undertakes acts that go against morals and customs, which are punishable by Dominican law."

It's unclear whether officials are referring to Miley riding around on a hot dog, grinding on the hood of a car, Twerking with tiny people or what.

Anyone remember when Miley Cyrus made music? Because it seems like all she's doing these days is competing with Kylie and Kendall Jenner for the title of Queen of Instagram.

Of course, while Kendall and Kylie post inappropriate selfies by the score, Miley takes a different approach to gaining the Internet's attention. We call it the, "Hey y'all, look how freakin' weird I am!" approach.

That's a video Miley posted yesterday and, as you may have guessed, it's bizarre...and it features her tongue.

Miley's Instagram has been one of the weirdest on the web for a long time, so we shouldn't be surprised when she posts a clip like this one, but the tripped out lighting, the glassy eyes, the weird silence - it all just sort of makes us feel that Miley is in a very strange place these days. 

Granted, it's not as worrisome as Miley's five-foot bong video, but it still has us hoping that Billy Ray is planning to pay her a concerned parent visit very soon.
