The Veronicas Singer is Fierce on Fur

The Veronicas

We were blown away when we read that Jess Origliasso, one-half of the gorgeous pop duo The Veronicas, feels the way she does about the nasty fur trade.

Not only is Jess fur-free, but she certainly ain’t shy about lettin’ the world know it. She told Confidential, “Death for these animals is a horror story—the most common method used for killing foxes is electrocution. I can’t speak for Lisa [her twin and bandmate], but I admire the approach to the eye-catching photo shoots PETA [does] to get the important message out there.” Wow! Well-worded, and thanks for the shout-out!

She’s so bold with her animal rights message that she’s even worn a faux fur jacket that reads “F*** Fur.” In-your-face sass like this makes her fans set down their soy mochas, snap their necks, and say “Daaaaaang!” at how fly this girl is.
