Miley Cyrus Goes Vegan
After her recent appearance in the public spotlight for her altruistic charitable work helping LGBT homeless youth, Miley Cyrus expands her circle of compassion and tackles the issue of animal abuse in the latest issue of Paper mag.
“Cyrus almost immediately starts talking about how she decided to become a vegan last year,” the article reads. “She was touring the world in support of Bangerz, her platinum 2013 album, when her beloved dog, Floyd, an Alaskan Klee Kai, was mauled by a coyote.
She quit consuming animal products almost immediately. She hasn’t spoken much about the switch, but she says that she’s finally ready to be held accountable — to be an example.”
One of the photographs featured in the spread shows the singer hugging a pig. It appears Miley welcomed veganism into her life a few months ago but waited before making the announcement.
Miley is also inspired by vegan Joan Jett and how “she loves animals and doesn’t want to eat them!” (Hall of Fame Induction Speech).
The daring singer has never been one to hold back on sharing her life and opinions on the internet, thus leading her to publicising her plant-based meals on social media platforms such as Instagram with the caption “So many good plants/fruits/veggies to eat you ain’t gottttta eat dead animals!” (below).
Miley is shedding light on an ever-growing issue, as more and more people realise that the vegan way is THE way! Let’s hope her revelation influences others to adopt more ethical, compassionate and plant-based choices.
