Miley Cyrus and her pet pig, Bubba Sue, are on the Summer cover of Paper magazine, and she’s using the opportunity to promote a great cause. The cover story, which features plenty of NSFW images of the young pop star, highlights the Happy Hippie Foundation, a nonprofit launched by Miley in May which is meant to help LGBT and homeless youth. In Paper‘s issue, Miley also briefly describes her awareness of her own privilege. “I was doing a show two nights ago and I was wearing butterfly nipple pasties and butterfly wings. I’m standing there with my tits out, dressed like a butterfly. How the f*ck is that fair? How am I so lucky?” This isn’t the first time Miley has brought these issues into the spotlight; at last year’s VMAs, Miley not only brought a formerly homeless young man named Jesse as her date, she let him accept her award on her behalf so he could speak about his experiences. Keep scrolling to see more images from Paper‘s new issue, which hits stands June 22.

J.T. helped start the live auction off when he won a Damien Hirst painting for $80,000 followed by Rihanna taking home a pair of diamond Harry Winston earrings for $35,000. Miley Cyrus dropped a whopping $300,000 on a print of a naked woman by photographer Ryan McGinley after getting into bidding war with Rihanna and Ford.
Later, Cyrus, Rihanna and Ford donated another $200,000 each to the AIDS group.
“I’m a little drunk. That’s why I’m a half a million deep,” Cyrus said from the stage before talking about her new role as MAC Cosmetics’ new Viva Glam celebrity spokesperson.
“If I’m going to have a voice I would like to start an open dialogue about prevention and awareness and how people in the world have been effected by HIV and AIDS,” Cyrus said. “Hopefully, I could break down people’s walls that have been built up around sexuality. I’m obviously not too embarrassed to talk about these things, especially with young people.”
Paltrow then returned to the stage to introduce Rihanna, who presented Ford with his award (I’ll have more on that later).
“I’m drunk now so this isn’t fair,” Paltrow cracked. “And Miley Cyrus has so much more money than I do. What the f—k?”
The night ended with another surprise performance by Diana Ross.
