During a Thursday appearance on Ellen, Miley Cyrus cried as she discussed the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas. "It just really makes me really upset," she admitted. "So, I really hope people know--I couldn't fake it, you know--my grandma's sitting here, and my mom's sitting here, and I go home to my seven dogs, and if I didn't have that anymore, it'd be really hard. So, I'm really happy to help in any way that I can, and I hope that people understand, and can put themselves in those people's shoes, and just know what it feels like to have everything taken away from you." Ellen DeGeneres also revealed during the segment that Miley had already donated $500,000 to aid in relief efforts.
