As part of Miley Cyrus’ Backyard Sessions video series on Facebook, and as a way to launch her new charitable foundation Happy Hippie, the pop star has teamed up with Against Me! Singer Laura Jane Grace and Joan Jett, one of the newest inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, for a live cover of the Replacements’ Let it Be classic “Androgynous.”
The new video appears to be the first in run of artist cover collaborations to help get the word out about The Happy Hippie Foundation, which Cyrus set up in order to create an online digital support space for LGBT youth and their families while also fighting back against homelessness. It’s a cause near and dear to the singer’s heart as evidenced by her decision to invite homeless teen Jesse Helt to accept her award for Video of the Year at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards.
More #backyardsessions videos coming today!! Huge thank you to Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! and #JoanJett of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts for lending their voices and helping me launch The Happy Hippie Foundation. Find out more at happyhippies.org #HappyHippiePresents #Androgynous #HappyHippie
