Miley Cyrus is PETA's Compassionate Citizen

Miley Cyrus is PETA's Compassionate Citizen

Miley Cyrus has earned PETA‘s Compassionate Citizen Award from the youth division for her love of chickens.

The 16-year-old starlet admitted to taking home a few chickens from the set of her latest flick, Hannah Montana The Movie. Costar Jason Earles shared about Miley‘s snatching: “Miley picked it up thought it was real cute and decided she needed to save this chicken. So she put it in a cardboard box with some pine straw and got her mom to take it home. She is funny with animals ” she was like ‘I have to have that chicken’. She falls in love like you wouldn’t believe.”

Miley‘s heart is as big as her smile,” said Dan Shannon, PETA’s assistant director of Youth Outreach and Campaigns. “We hope that her act of compassion will inspire her fans to be kind to animals too.”

Congrats, Miley!

  • kidanimationlover

    hey did you guys read on the internet what jamie foxx said about Miley, that was totally uncalled for. so i guess he went to kids inaugrial day or whatever you spell it was for nothing huh..

  • Hiji

    Aww…Miley amazes me in many ways.
    She really does have a big heart,in my opinion she’s one the most amazing role models out there–yeah she’s been in the media because of many stuff —but the media is always on her b/c she’s real, if u think of it mileys only flaw is being real and trusting that ppl are like her.

    She’s a sweetheart and she deserves all that she’s getting!!!

  • kidanimationlover

    and she’s famous so she gives publicity..
    so this is a good thing for PETA!

    and the animals

    You are the first person I have read anywhere, other than movie critics, that didn’t actually like the film. And I have seen LOTS of comments. But no way everyone is going to like it. Anyhow, this isn’t really why I am posting.

    I am posting this so I can vent my outrage over the malicious tirade by Jamie Foxx perpetrated on Miley Cyrus recently. Apparently, in the infinite wisdom of a 41 year old man, with a daughter Miley’s age, decided he needed to rant about her on some silly talkshow of his. Presumably he was all upset about her recent attack on Radiohead, so he decided to take their defense. He, and his posse, proceeded to call on her to start taking heroin like Britney, or do some crack like Lindsay, or at least go out there and make a s*x tape. etc etc etc. They even called her a white b*tch. Sound a little racist?

    But should anyone be surprised that people go off on Miley like this? Of course not. You got guys like Perez Hilton leading off with Sl*tty Cyrus every time he mentions her name. Every single time! There are other that follow suit because it’s easy to attack a white girl in this society. I know this doesn’t belong here, but I could care less. I am writing anyhow just to tell everyone what a jerk Jamie Foxx is. Whatever respect I once had for him has completely vanished. I hope he falls off a cliff.

    @billythekid: that’s exactly what I thought when i read that article.
    that man is a complete jerk!

  • Victoria

    she deserves this honor completely!

    i love you miles <3

  • mileyrox

    @[[ME]]: oh sorry, i can’t understand idiot language!
    gosh can’t you just spell out the words? and no one even cares about selena ho-mez.

  • nysro

    Where is the Bird Flu when you need it?

  • LuckyL

    Lol, didn’t this b*tch say how she loved to EAT chicken the other day?

  • Lea


    She’s been donating millions to charities, visiting hospitals, and helped save aninals and children ever since she started. And no, you don’t know that bec. you’re Suhlena Gomez even posted a documentary on YouTube just to tell people how goody-goodie she is. Publicity stunt much?

  • Peace Love Miley


    now I hate jamie foxx of what she just said to miley! is that the way to respect a person?! miley’s a woman too and he just said that Miley’s a “White B*tch” which is totally NOT true!!!! ugh!

  • billythekid


    You are an ignorant fool. Just because she rescues a couple birds doesn’t mean she has to now become a vegetarian just to prove her sincerity to the likes of whatever you are. Just because we eat animals doesn’t mean we have to be devoid of all feeling for them. Miley just happened to work with these particular birds, which was probably the reason behind her feelings regarding them. To be ignorant must be bliss.
