With an upcoming album dedicated to all the dead pets in Miley’s life, it was only natural for the perpetually stoned pop star to discuss some of her memorable pet moments with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. 


Cyrus explains that two of her pets, Pablow the blowfish (lol) and Pig the pig, are unusually intelligent for their kind. While out for sushi with a group of friends, Miley was floored after she saw her friends feasting on a plate of blowfish. She tells Fallon,

“One day, I went to a sushi restaurant with a few of my friends and they were serving blowfish, and I thought, ‘You know, this is an intelligent animal.'”

After connecting the dots, Cyrus realized that she did not want to eat the animals whose lives she valued. She explains her brilliant fish would greet her whenever she came home, excitedly swimming about waiting for its next meal.

Additionally, her pet pig Pig, who also upholds a vegan diet like Cyrus, understands the role food can play in their relationship. She explains that Pig is currently on a diet after he learned how to trick Cryus into giving it pieces of fruit. Miley claims the pig would chase after her, nibbling on her ankles until she would drop whatever piece of fruit she was eating.

The passionate vegan is one of many celebrities in the yeah, let’s tak about music world to make the transition into a plant-based lifestyle. She’s so committed, she even tattooed her favorite snack onto her arm.
