First Usher made us Scream when he dropped his new album. Then he did it again by dropping meat and dairy
products! Usher is reportedly now vegan and is encouraging his pal Justin
Bieber to get on board. We know the Biebs cares about animals because of all his work
with PETA, so Never Say Never.
Maybe Usher will pick up Mayim Bialik's new vegan cookbook?

Call it "animal magnetism," but we couldn't help but notice how many of the women on Maxim's Hot 100 list look awfully familiar. Olivia Munn edged out almost everyone, claiming the number two spot, but she's number one in our eyes for her defense of animals used in circuses and horses forced to pull carriages—just ask Hoda Kotb!
Rubbing shoulders with Olivia on the list is Katy Perry at number three. Ms. Perry became Mrs. Sexiest Vegetarian in the UK when she married Russell Brand, and he might be rubbing off on the singer, who has said that she loves Tofurky. At number five, Mila Kunis is definitely hot, but fur, she says, is not.
Vegetarians liberally pepper the list, including Anne Hathaway, Natalie Portman, and reigning Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity Olivia Wilde.
Lea Michele has more in common with Olivia Munn than just talent and beauty—the fur-free vegetarian star has tirelessly campaigned to end horse-drawn carriages too. Near to Lea on the list and in their animal-friendly values is Eva Mendes, who bared her skin for PETA to save the skins of animals killed for fur. And Audrina Patridge is an angel for animals, asking her fans always to adopt from an animal shelter in a PETA ad.
So many of the Hot 100 ladies are doing great things for animals that they were too numerous to mention here, but one thing is clear: Being compassionate makes one beautiful inside and out.
Mila Kunis, who was just nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance opposite vegan all-star Natalie Portman in Black Swan—the new psychological thriller from PETA friend Darren Aronofsky—is receiving praise for her talent and beauty, but we also love her for being outspokenly fur-free!
In a behind-the-scenes report on her cover shoot for Nylon, the magazine notes that "the actress made sure [the coat she wore] was faux fur." They dressed her in a leopard print jacket and it's completely not surprising that she looks great.
Wish good luck to animal lovers Mila, Natalie, and Darren at the Golden Globes!

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.
