Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Api­ano licked by Mi­ley Cyrus has sold for $50,000. The ‘Wreck­ing Ball’ hit­maker agreed to help Linda Perry sell off the in­stru­ment - which was do­nated by ‘Orange is the New Black’ star Ruby Rose - at the Los An­ge­les LGBT Cen­ter’s Van­guard Awards gala and made a spe­cial ef­fort to make the lot more en­tic­ing, by adorn­ing it with her own saliva. And it was even­tu­ally picked up by a lucky bid­der for a stag­ger­ing $50,000. Later in the evening, Mi­ley was “be­yond grate­ful” to be pre­sented with the Van­guard Award by staff mem­bers from the LGBT Cen­tre and mem­bers of her own Happy Hippy Foundation. She said: “I want all of you to know that I feel be­yond grate­ful to be in a room full of so many...peo­ple who care so much about oth­ers be­cause un­for­tu­nately that is way too rare in the world that we live in to­day. “I’m think­ing of tonight not as cel­e­brat­ing what we’ve al­ready done but what we’re do­ing and what we’re go­ing to do in the fu­ture.” Jane Fonda was also hon­oured for her work with the LGBT com­mu­nity at the gala, and picked up her ac­co­lade from her ‘Grace and Frankie’ co-star Lily Tomlin. She said: “As I see it, trans women are the front­line war­riors in the bat­tle against pa­tri­archy. Be­cause you bet­ter be­lieve that any per­son who gives up pe­nis priv­i­lege vol­un­tar­ily is go­ing to be a threat to the pa­tri­archy.” Screen­writer Ron Nyswaner also re­ceived an award, while Linda and ‘Glee’ star Alex Newell per­formed dur­ing the event at the Hy­att Re­gency Plaza Ho­tel in Los An­ge­les.
