Miley Cyrus auctioned her Caitlyn Jenner artworks off at the sixth annual Inspiration Gala New York to benefit amfAR, the foundation for AIDS Research, on Tuesday, June 16. The artworks surprisingly fetched as much as $69,000.
The “Wrecking Ball” hitmaker called her three Caitlyn Jenner artworks “The Caitlyn Collection.” The artworks were Vanity Fair covers which were customized by Miley using sequins, glitter, paint and glue. Each of the artworks also got Caitlyn Jenner’s autograph.
Excited with the live auction of her artworks, the 22-year-old singer posted an Instagram picture showing her colorful artworks held by escorts on the stage. She captioned it, “Dirty hippie x @happyhippiefdn art being auctioned @amfar @caitlynjenner.”
During the event, Miley was honored with the amfAR Award of Inspiration alongside Andy Cohen. They were presented with the awards in recognition of their significant contributions to the fight against AIDS. In her acceptance speech of the award, she thanked her parents and hoped that it would make up for the bad words she said about them in an interview with Paper magazine. “I just want to tell my parents, I hope that this makes them proud and somehow makes up for all the s**t that I did,” she said.
