Miley Cyrus Receives peta2's Compassionate Citizen Award
It’s no secret to anyone in peta2 that Marta and I are big Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana fans. Yeah, I’ll admit it—we’re a little older than the average Miley fan, especially since we don’t have kids, but that girl is so charismatic and fun, you can’t help but be drawn to her.
Oh, and she’s a huge animal lover, too, in case you hadn’t heard. There are always stories and photos of Miley stopping on the side of the road to rescue strays. So we weren’t one bit surprised when we found out that she had rescued some chickens from the set of her new flick, Hannah Montana: The Movie.
Apparently, Miley fell in love with one of the chickens on the movie set and decided to take her and several others home because, according to the article, she thought “they were sad to be working.” (Awww, of course they were—animals aren’t actors!) The article also alludes to the fact that she may be asked to go naked for one of our campaigns—um, no. She’s underage, for goodness’ sake! Not that we wouldn’t LOVE for her to star in any ad for peta2—Miley, in case you’re reading this, we think you’d make a beautiful “Angel for Animals”!
When we find out about celebs who do nice things for animals, we like to acknowledge it, so peta2 is giving Miley Cyrus our ‘Compassionate Citizen’ Award and sending her some yummy vegan chocolates.
Here’s hoping that her love of chickens will make her rethink eating them.
P.S. Marta and I caught a matinee on Sunday—loved it! We knew our beloved Hannah Montana would not let us down.
