Joss Stone strips down for PETA!

Joss Stone is the latest celebrity to take it all off for PETA, and there have been plenty.

Award-winning British soul singer Joss Stone says there’s one thing that she can’t bear—the killing of bears to make hats for The Queen’s Guards. The “For the Love of You” singer is baring all for the love of Canadian bears.

K, sure, why not!

Lea Michele speaking out about the cruelty of horse-drawn carriages

‘Glee’s’ Lea Michele is the latest celebrity to stand behind PETA. Her cause? She’s raising her voice against the cruelty of horse-drawn carriages. According to PETA,

In a shocking undercover video, Lea exposes the harsh conditions that these overworked horses are subjected to—all day, every day. The native New Yorker also posed with a rescued horse for a gorgeous PETA ad to help spread the message that horses don’t belong in traffic. During their workday, these horses are forced into dangerous traffic, where they develop respiratory ailments from inhaling exhaust fumes and debilitating leg problems from pounding the hard pavement. They constantly weave between cars and are often spooked by loud noises on the streets. As a result, accidents sometimes occur in which many horses and people are seriously injured or even killed. When not working, these horses are confined to cramped stalls in which they are unable to turn around, stretch their legs, or even lie down comfortably. Don’t get taken for a ride. Join Lea and countless others in boycotting horse-drawn carriages!

“Imagine for a moment that you’re forced to do hard physical labor all day, seven days a week—whether it’s sweltering hot or freezing cold outside,” Lea says. “At the end of the day, instead of relaxing on [an] easy chair or sleeping in a comfortable bed, you are locked in a tiny closet all night long.”

Call me crazy, but really!? I love animals – but c’mon…horse drawn carriages? Forcing them into dangerous traffic? Hmmm, what’s your opinion on the matter.

Nicole Richie slammed by PETA over elephant!

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden were married in front of 150 guests at her father’s home on Saturday night. She was said to have worn three separate looks at her wedding and even had a special guest at her reception — an elephant!

PETA is now slamming Nicole and Joel for the elephant and has sent them a notice to air their concerns. They say, “We know that Nicole is sympathetic to the plight of animals in the circus and is opposed to the way in which baby elephants are slammed to the ground and gouged with steel-tipped bullhooks in order to train them for circuses such as Ringling Bros. We’re sure she didn’t know that Have Trunk Will Travel – the company that likely provided Tai the elephant, who was taken from the wild as a baby more than 40 years ago — trains its elephants with bullhooks and electric shock prods.”

Their statement continues, “We’re writing to her privately to respectfully ask her to keep exotic animals off her guest list for future celebrations.”

Check out Stephanie Pratt’s PETA ad!

The Hills star Stephanie Pratt was happy to bare her buns to save bunnies for the cover of PETA’s “Be Nice to Bunnies” cruelty-free shopping application—but that’s not the image that iPhone users will be seeing in the app store. Pratt’s sexy app cover was deemed too risqué for Apple’s iTunes Store. Instead, PETA will use a clothed image of Pratt for the app’s cover and launch the sexy version as a print public service announcement on
