Pink Tops Charts and PETA’s Heart

So who besides me ran screaming to their local music store to pick up Pink’s new album Funhouse, which dropped last week? OK, so maybe not screaming … but I know I’m not the only one who anxiously anticipated this album, because its first single, “So What,” has been #1 on the music charts all over the globe. I’m thrilled to report that the album totally rocks, as does the rock star behind the tunes.

So what? Well, here at PETA, we love Pink because of her compassion for animals. She is a longtime PETA booster and a lifelong animal protector, and she kicks some serious derrière when it comes to shining the light on animal cruelty.

She’s had a hand in so many of our campaigns—from that enormous billboard in protest of horse-drawn carriages that we erected in Times Square this year to the anti-fur ad that she shot for us a few years back. She called out Beyoncé for wearing fur, and she’s written to both Prince William for his support of hunting and to Queen Elizabeth II for not ditching the bear fur for faux fur on her Guards’ caps. But wait, there’s more!

Pink narrated our Australian wool exposé, and called for a global boycott of Australian wool during a live concert in Paris! Then—not to leave our Kentucky Fried Cruelty campaign hanging—Pink reached out to her fans about the cruelty that goes into every KFC bucket and box by placing a link to our Web site on the front page of her official fan site! Oh, and did I mention that she did that to coincide with the release of her 2006 album I’m Not Dead? Brilliant!

And believe-you-me, she works behind the scenes, too, often penning letters to animal-exploiting companies and individuals, including KFC and Siegfried and Roy, just to name a couple. The singer was even gracious enough to open her home and host the kick-off party for PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk’s book Let’s Have A Dog Party! last year! OK, did I mention she rocks?

Pink is seriously hardcore when it comes to helping out the animals, and we at PETA adore her for everything that she does. We wish you the best success on your new album, Pink! And you—get off your derrière and go buy it!

    Pink’s OK! Much better than that socalled “next big thing” Katy Perry i saw the tiresome singer with an “astrakhan skin” coat on on Perez Hilton site. You must beat a pregnant sheep till she has an abortion and that treatment make the lamb’s wool curl. After skinned the lamb you get “ASTRAKHAN”. Think about it when you hear her boring tunes…

    I love you Pink for all you do for animals. Your music rocks and your heart is genuine and extremely empathetic. I feel the way you do about all animals and I appreciate how much you are helping them. I heard once that you had pet Rats…I have had Rat kids for 15 years now and they are the best. Thanks for showing your beautiful heart to us Pink. The animals and all of us who love them thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

    I admire Pink’s straightforward uncompromising stand for animals. Go Pink!

    Animals need strong people not just physically but morally to stand up for them and their rights. I’m glad Pink is one of those strong people. And I love the green tights!
