Miley Croons Sad Ballad to Her Dead Blowfish
The unicorn theme's a whimsical touch.   (Facebook)

Only those with hearts of steel chiseled out of her infamous wrecking ball could watch Miley Cyrus sing about Pablow, her dearly departed blowfish, and not feel all the feels—especially with lyrics like "How can I love / Someone I’ve never touched / You lived under the water / But I love you so much." She also confesses she can't go out with pals anymore for sushi, because "watching my friends eat my friends ruined my appetite." But the video posted for her Happy Hippie Foundation's "Backyard Sessions" isn't without theatrics: she's tickling the keyboards dressed as a unicorn, with a sympathetic-looking stuffed unicorn forlornly watching her performance from a nearby stool.

As Bobby Finger writes for Jezebel, "you can easily expect one or two neurons to transmit some kind of low-level 'awww' message" during the song's "earnest" play. Miley's emotional nosedive reaches a head at around 2:55; the video is here. (Miley had a tough time last year dealing with the death of her dog Floyd.)
