Cyrus and the VMAs share a long love story together. Two years ago, Cyrus performed in her underwear with Robin Thicke at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Last year, when being given the video of the year honor for “Wrecking Ball,” she tried to make herself the voice of America’s homeless youth problem by inviting a homeless man on stage with her.
