Last week Miley Cyrus made news not for any type of lewd behavior, but for the launch of her new charity cause, the Happy Hippie Foundation, which raises awareness and funding for homeless, LGBT, and troubled youth. Part of the campaign has been a series of Backyard Sessions videos, and it kickstarted earlier this month with Joan Jett and Against Me!’s Laura Jane Grace covering the Replacements.
Today, Cyrus sticks with the theme, both covering an ’80s song and partnering up, as she and Ariana Grande unveiled their rendition of Crowded House’s ’80s hit “Don’t Dream It’s Over.” Cyrus is dressed up in unicorn pajamas, while Grande plays a mouse.
Crowded House have yet to publicly respond to the video on socialmedia.
A while back, Cyrus explained the goal of the Happy Hippie Foundation, telling Medium: “The Happy Hippie Foundation is encouraging people to be the artists of a picture of true freedom, freedom of self-expression… freedom to be true to themselves. The fight to be free isn’t over. We have to rally together and fight injustice. Being a happy hippie means making others happy, even those unlike yourself!”
