A Rihanna Fan Pops the Question

Published by PETA.

Today, as fans stood in line for hours at Rihanna’s book-signing at the Fifth Avenue Barnes & Noble in New York City, one animal-loving fan asked the pop sensation an important question: “Would you consider going fur-free?” To the fan’s delight, Rihanna replied, “I will.”

Is Rihanna being sincere? Let’s hope she will realize that fur is “rated R”—as in repulsive, rotten, and ruthless—and will leave animal corpses out of her closet for good. If so, we are ready to reach out to help. But only time will tell, and PETA will be keeping an eagle eye on what she wears. As you may know, Rihanna was included on PETA’s Worst-Dressed List last year—if she follows her fan’s advice, she may escape the dishonor this year.
