Got fur? Lady Gaga does, and PETA is not too pleased about it. Lady Gaga was recently photographed in a poster for her upcoming film Machete Kills and sported a fur earlier this week in Bulgaria. True to form, PETA’s Jeff Mackey wrote an open letter to Lady Gaga on their website reminding the pop star that she once declared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show “I hate fur and I don’t wear fur.” As if accusing of her of hypocrisy wasn’t crass enough, Mackey compared her to Kim Kardashian writing, “you’re making yourself a target just like the mindless Kim Kardashian.” Ouch.

Excuse us, Morrissey, but it looks like you’ve got a little something stuck up there…
Former The Smith‘s singer Morrissey donned a feline in hopes of helping to curb animal over-population. In an accompanying statement he explains that, “Despite the fact that they’re incredibly intelligent, animals unfortunately haven’t yet worked out how to slip on a rubber,” and that over-breeding leads to too-full shelters. “Please do the right thing,” the vegan and animal rights activist begs, encouraging pet owners to spay or neuter their animals while a real, live cat sits atop his head. The whole thing’s a little confounding and pretty silly, but it did get our attention just as a good ad should.
Controversial as the PETA may be, we can’t help but love their ads, Morrissey’s being only the most recent. Click through to see our five favorites that feature musicians:
The animal rights organization PETA has asked Britney Spears, notorious fur-lover and tiny dog hoarder, to come work at their headquarters for a day as a receptionist. Apparently her blink-and-you’ll-miss-it gig on How I Met Your Mother has inspired PETA head Ingrid Newkirk to bury the hatchet with the pop star. In an open letter published on the group’s blog, she writes:
“After seeing your excellent performance on How I Met Your Mother, PETA would like to offer you a real job as a receptionist. It could be for as little as an hour, and you would see?from the inside?why we are so concerned about issues like fur and homeless dogs and cats. As a “thank you” for your willingness to learn and help, we would donate $1,000 to a children’s charity.”
Chill out PETA. Brit isn’t ever going to “tell people about the misery that foxes, chinchillas, and other animals suffer on fur farms,” because her wardrobe depends on that misery! And without fur, what would cover up her stained dresses and her nipple slips? Seriously, what is more important – the life of innocent animals or the hiding of Brit’s vag behind a fur coat?! Yeah, we thought so.
