Why Did Miley Cyrus Just Get A Vegemite Tattoo?

Miley Cyrus has grabbed the headlines again, and it has nothing to do with risqué music videos. Instead, it has to do with a new tattoo she just got of a jar of Vegemite.

What’s Vegemite?

However, we think it has more to do with her fiancé, actor Liam Hemsworth, who recently announced his love for Vegemite saying “after-school Milo and Vegemite on toast. I lived on it.”

A little while after this announcement, Cyrus got the tattoo inked on by Dr Woo, a LA tattoo artist:

Meanwhile, Vegemite has responded with this tweet:

This joins Cyrus’ large collection of tattoos which include an avocado, a tongue and a watermelon.
