Miley Cyrus shows vulnerable side in teary amFAR Inspiration Gala speech
Miley Cyrus was presented the Inspiration Award at the sixth annual amFAR Inspiration Gala and when it came time to give her speech, she got truly emotional and candid, showing us a mature, poignant side we haven’t really seen before.

For 11 minutes, Cyrus spoke from her heart and included a BIG shoutout to her parents, Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus, who were in the audience.

”I‘m happy to have you here and I just want to tell you how much I love you,“ said Cyrus. “I hope this [award] makes you proud and somehow makes up for all the shit that I do all the time. You are two of the most selfless people and you taught me and all my siblings how important it is to be there for those who need us and how important it is to care about other people and their lives. So thank you for making me learn that. People say they don‘t choose their family, I chose my family every time.”

Tearing up, the 22-year-old ended on a touching note, saying, “I think that even if you weren‘t my mom and dad, I hope we’d still be in the room together looking for a cure. Thank you very much.”
