She's also a mother, so she cares deeply about other mothers, even animal ones.
Also an animal lover and vegan, Emily cannot stand how dairy cows are kept constantly pregnant, forced to produce up to four times as much milk as they naturally would and have their calves torn away from them.
These poor animals suffer just so we can have cheese, or a glass of milk, which some studies have shown to cause acne, breast/prostate cancer and even type 1 diabetes.
So join Emily in rejecting cruel dairy foods by trying vegan alternatives!!

The newest and most horrible form of animal cruelty is called "trunking."
Trunking is where two fighting dogs are simply locked in the trunk of car.
Then the dogs fight to death as the owner drives around, blasting music to cover up the sound.
After ten or fifteen minutes, the owner pulls over, dumps the body of the dead dog and continues on with the winner, waiting until he heals up enough to fight again.
It's absolutely terrible and it's so good that there are people out rescuing these dogs, like Miami-Dade County Animal Services, who rescued a group of dogs that were thought to have been used for trunking.
Five adult dogs and four puppies were rescued from a man's home in terrible condition.
Check out the video (above) to see some of the cute pups who were rescued and to learn more about this horrible crime.
The We Can’t Stop singer interviewed with Rolling Stone magazine for their July 4th issue, and revealed her fairly liberal thoughts on drugs and alcohol.
Given her stoner reputation, we’re not totally surprised. Though, when asked to clarify her penchant for weed, she said:
"You can't ask someone that and expect them to say yes... I did a song with Snoop Dogg called 'Ashtrays and Heartbreaks,' so people can put it together for themselves."
That sounds fairly straightforward to us. Mileybird then went ahead to state that she thinks there are things much, much worse than a little bit of the green stuff:
"I think alcohol is way more dangerous than marijuana -- people can be mad at me for saying that, but I don't care... I've seen a lot of people spiral down with alcohol, but I've never seen that happen with weed."
"As long as it isn't illegal, there are far more dangerous things. And it's legal in the state of California. So I'm happy to live in California, a place where you can be whoever you want to be."
Well, Miley, marijuana isn’t exactly legal in California unless you have a prescription, so we’re not entirely sure what you mean. But, okay...
As for her transition from Disney teen idol to mature pop star, she said:
