Singer-songwriter Steve Grand has named Miley Cyrus his guilty pleasure.

The 23-year-old Grand became an instant YouTube celebrity when he released his gay-themed All-American Boy video on July 2.

On Wednesday, he released his third video, Back to California. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

During an appearance on Larry King Now, Grand announced that he was raising funds for his first album through a campaign and hoped to raise $81,000 in the next 30 days. As of Thursday morning, Grand had surpassed his goal, raising $113,546 from 1,647 backers.

“I think especially today there's a great power to being independent, especially because you can be independent,” Grand said of going it without a record label. “I'm doing this because I want my fans to be my label. They've been so incredible from day one.”

When asked about his guilty pleasure, Grand answered: “Miley Cyrus. Gotta love that twerk.”
