Miley Cyrus’ career has had its share of twists and turns: few people can claim to have have been a Disney performer, movie star, and maintained a successful pop music career throughout. Miley can do it all, which is what makes her recent, two hour-long interview with Howard Stern so interesting. Love her or hate her, she’s had an incredibly interesting life, and she took listeners through it all.

Among the revelations Miley disclosed in the interview: She’s stopped smoking weed, her 2013 MTV Music Awards controversy was “the best thing that ever happened to her (“I realized my fucking power there”), and her real name is Destiny Hope, not Miley. Most importantly, for anyone who’s been wondering why Miley hasn’t been touring recently behind her new album Younger Now: it’s because of her pet pigs.

“Literally the only reason I’m not touring is because of those fucking pigs,” she told Stern. “That’s how much I love those pigs.”  For reference, and in case you don’t believe Cyrus re: the lovability of these pigs:

Yeah, I would definitely stay home as much as possible too.
