Let us be the first to announce that Steve-O's still under the influence—of concern and compassion for animals. And, of course, we couldn't be more thrilled.
The vegan Jackass star was interviewed about his involvement with PETA for the American Music Awards' pre-show, Give Back Hollywood, which airs tonight on ABC. Here's a sneak peek at a portion of his interview.
Also, Jenna Dewan Tatum made US Magazine's 2010 list of Hot Hollywood Stars Who Care for her smoldering ad supporting PETA's campaign against the exotic-skins industry—and she was honored at a party last night in Los Angeles.
When it comes to influencing others to be kind to animals, PETA's lifesaving campaigns and victories depend on support from our shining supporters—like you.

A recent article on UsMagazine.com notes that Octomom Nadya Suleman is considering adding another member to her brood.
No, she's not thinking about having any more babies (at least as far as we know). She's considering bringing a pig into her home.
Actually, into her home isn't quite correct. She wants to buy a pig, put a diaper on him or her, and have him or her live outside—because of the smell.
Pigs are intelligent, social creatures with complex needs. Throwing such a sensitive animal into a mix of 14 kids who won't understand him or her—and expecting him or her to live outside—is no way to treat a family companion.
So, we've written Nadya to ask her to reconsider her plans. Instead of adding another mouth to feed, we hope that she'll focus on the 14 that she already has.
And if compassion doesn't change her mind, hopefully the fear of pig flu will.

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.
