Photo of Miley Cyrus to be auctioned to raise money for Planned Parenthood

LOS ANGELES, April 15 (UPI) — Miley Cyrus, visual artist Marilyn Minter and fashion designer Marc Jacobs are partnering up to bolster financial support for Planned Parenthood.

The reproductive health organization introduced an exclusive photo session by Minter with Cyrus on Thursday, announcing the top image will be sold for a limited time on Artsy.

Only 50 large prints have been made of a close-up portrait of Cyrus, seen in the photographer’s signature through-steamy-glass style. The prints are available for purchase for $5,500 each.

“She’s been famous since she was 11 and she’s a great artist, so she doesn’t care about making money,” Minters said about Cyrus in an interview with Artsy ahead of the reveal. “She wants to give back.”

Planned Parenthood CEO Joan Malin also commented on the collaboration, saying the artists shine “a spotlight on the millions of women who are being negatively affected by this ongoing attack on abortion access.”

“And we are so grateful for the remarkable print they created together and we are delighted that sales will directly benefit PPNYC patients.”

Other images from the photo session will reportedly turn up on special Marc Jacobs t-shirts — donning the phrases “Miley Hearts Planned Parenthood” and “Pro Choice Miley” — on sale in stores starting May 16.

All of the proceeds from the portrait and t-shirt sales will go to support Planned Parenthood.
