Los Angeles -- Stripped to the waist—except, of course, for
the hundreds of tattoos that cover him from neck to navel—multifaceted musician
Trace Cyrus, also known as electro-pop act Ashland High, stars in
a brand-new "Ink, Not Mink" ad for peta2, PETA's youth division, that
reads, "Look Good in Your Own Skin, and Let
Animals Keep Theirs." A high-resolution version of the ad is
For Trace, kindness to animals is as much a family trait as
musicianship. "I grew up on a farm, pretty much, in Nashville," he
explains in an exclusive peta2 interview, going on
to elaborate that if his father, Billy Ray, found an injured deer, he would
help rehabilitate the animal and that his family has always lived with dogs.
Cyrus says of one of his dogs, "Nash … he went on tour with me and
everything. He did the whole four-month
Miley tour when I went on tour with her. … I look at them like my kids."
And as for fur? "I've just never been interested in wearing fur … and I'm
not about to start now."
Each year, millions of foxes, minks, coyotes, rabbits, and
even dogs and cats are bludgeoned to death, electrocuted, strangled with wire
nooses, or skinned alive—all in the name of fashion. For every cuff, collar,
piece of trim, or coat made from real fur, an animal endured a miserable life
and an agonizing death.
Cyrus joins a long list of musicians and other
celebrities—including Chester Bennington, Dave Navarro, Waka
Flocka Flame, and Steve-O, among others—who have participated in
peta2's "Ink, Not Mink" campaign.
