Miley Cyrus is officially vegan.
The bold singer made the announcement in the latest issue of Paper mag. In keeping with the theme, one of the photos from the spread features the singer hugging a pig.
Apparently, Cyrus has been vegan for awhile but waited to make the announcement.
“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.”
Cyrus talks a lot about other progressive issues in the piece, including her own fluid sexuality and her social activism work.
With Beyonce on a plant-based diet and Cyrus adopting a vegan lifestyle, two of music’s most influential women are now on board. That’s powerful stuff.
