Paul McCartney’s Party Rocks for Animals

Written by PETA | April 18, 2012

Fur-free party animals gathered en masse at Stella McCartney’s West Hollywood boutique on Friday for the release of Sir Paul McCartney’s music video for “My Valentine,” starring Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp

Woody Harrelson undoubtedly enjoyed the vegetarian food, while Joan Jett rocked vegan boots, as did Gwyneth Paltrow, who has shunned fur for PETA.

PETA Vice President Dan Mathews and Honorary PETA Director Pamela Anderson made quite the striking pair, as always. They were greeted by Stella, who playfully scolded Pam, “How dare you wear clothes in my shop!” (Pam famously posed nude in the designer’s London store window beneath a banner reading, “I’d rather bare skin than wear skin,” to draw attention to Stella’s fur- and leather-free fashions.)

Dan and Pam thanked Gwen Stefani for keeping fur out of her fashion lines and were invited by Jane Fonda to sit at her table to discuss activism. The hot topic with Sir Paul was this year’s Canadian seal slaughter—or what’s left of it following sealskin bans by the U.S., the E.U., and Russia. Both Pam and Paul have helped lead this campaign for more than a decade, and their work is finally paying off. We can’t think of a better “Valentine” for Sir Paul than to have thousands of baby seals’ lives spared.

  • Mimi says:

    Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, the Kardashians would never come…It’s obvious where there hearts are, not for animals but for themselves. Thank you Pamela, Paul, Jane and everyone else who lend a voice and respect on behalf of animals…Rock On

    I was surprised Jane Fonda was there. Glad Gwen Stafani shuns fur.Who else was there? I will be sure to support these people and boycott animal haters like Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, and others who dont care how animals are tortured. What sadists they are!

  • Michelle Walker says:

    Well done people. Keep on keeping on. This is a truly noble cause. In a time where many people are infatuated with celebrity and emulate their lives, it’s super important what you’re doing. Thanks from me also to everybody who cares about stopping this horrific trade. Xxx
