Angeles' STAPLES Center
will become the city's
vegetarian center when Morrissey plays there March 1.
The music legend has asked that no "flesh as food" be served at his shows, but fans will have plenty of festive fare, including
vegan sloppy Joes, vegan sushi, and grilled veggie sandwiches, to munch on
while they rock out to "Meat Is Murder." And as an extra nod to
animals, Moz also required that McCruelty shutter its doors for the day.
Beyoncé took a page out of
Morrissey's songbook when she wanted to drop her baby weight. Bey started eating one vegan meal a day,
and she's kept it up.
Maybe since she's eating fewer animals, she'll consider wearing fewer animals,
what PETA is asking the Buffalo
Sabres to do. When the hockey team
started awarding the "player
of the game" with a fur coat, we wrote to the Sabres' owner, Terry Pegula, urging him to do away with these vile gifts
as the team scrambles to reinvent itself as winners after the highly publicized
firing of head coach Lindy Ruff.
it's Canadian sealers that seals have to worry about, but recently two
young women were caught on
camera hitting and kicking seals who were resting on a
California beach. People were outraged, and Ian Somerhalder, along with many others,
took to Twitter to defend the seals as well as other animals:
Miley Cyrus is always full of sweet
tweets, so of course, she and dad Billy Ray Cyrus were on board to
compete in the Twitter for
the Critters Celebrity Challenge, a Twitter competition
that is raising money for several animal shelters and sanctuaries.
Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith's household may rival
Miley's in number of rescued dogs. The couple adopted two Labrador-shepherd
mixes, a brother and sister. PETA helped welcome the pups to their new home
with toys, treats, and a copy of Let's Have a Dog Party!
screen legend James
Cromwell has also had an
exciting month. He was arrested while helping PETA disrupt a meeting at the University of Wisconsin–Madison
to protest the school's
painful and deadly experiments on cats. Then he joined awesome animal advocate Jane Velez-Mitchell on her
show to publicize the school's
crimes against cats even more.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
