Miley Cyrus Skips Tour to Care for Pigs

The avid animal lover says she'd rather stay home with her companion animals than perform.

Vegan musician Miley Cyrus recently sat down with Howard Stern for an interview. During the back-and-forth, the pop star revealed several interesting facts, including that she no longer smokes marijuana and has a passion for helping homeless teenagers. Cyrus also explained why she has opted to forego a concert tour at the moment. “Literally, the only reason I'm not touring is because of those [expletive] pigs,” she said, according to E! News. “That's how much I love those pigs.” Cyrus announced to Paper magazine in 2015 that she had been vegan for one year following the death of her dog. Since the announcement, Cyrus has been an advocate for veganism and revealed in July a new vegan tattoo (The Vegan Society symbol inked on her inner arm) to her 72 million fans on Instagram.
