Meet Miss Britney Spears, unofficial cheerleader for the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards. First, Brit showed her appreciation for Katy Perry’s all-denim dress homage, now she’s throwing shine Miley Cyrus’ way for her charitable acceptance speech. Someone dig up this lady’s pom-poms — they’re probably still in the attic somewhere.
Spears took to Twitter Monday to show her support for Miley’s new endeavor with the below tweet:

If you’ve been dozing under a stone since Sunday, when Miley won the Video of the Year award for “Wrecking Ball,” instead of accepting the award herself, she sent a formerly homeless man named Jesse to take the trophy from Jimmy Fallon — and promote Miley’s new effort to raise money for an L.A. homeless shelter.
Miley, for her part, cried silently in the audience, a show of emotion and support that made Miss Spears clap with glee. At least via emoji. Relive the moment below — or just re-watch the whole show here.
