Howard: Did you learn anything from ayahuasca?

Miley: I did. You know what was crazy? I’m a vegan. And so when I was puking, I was puking up all the animals I had ever killed in the time I had eaten meat. I was envisioning all the animals. It wasn’t just cows and pigs and things like that. It was, like, whales and zebras and all those things. And so it really hurt. Like, you were having to throw up a full zebra. And then Mama Ayahuasca comes in. That’s the plant. The plant is female. And she said, 'This is why you’re a good person. Not only do you care about people, but you care about what people think are below them.' People think they’re above animals, right?”
