Janet Jackson Named PETA’s “Grinch of the Year” For Fur Collection

Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates


The animal rights group PETA has named Janet Jackson its Grinch of the Year for 2011.

Jackson “won” the dishonor for launching a collection with fur company Blackglama.

PETA’s press release states, “When Janet Jackson had her infamous ‘wardrobe malfunction’ during the Super Bowl, at least the flesh that popped into view was her own – unlike the stolen animal skins that she drapes herself with, which are as dead as her taste in fashion (not to mention her career).”

It adds, “Ms. Jackson, you’re just plan nasty.”

PETA also cited Cameron Crowe (for using live animals instead of computer images in We Bought A Zoo) and Kim Kardashian (for refusing to wear furs as “fake” as they allege her marriage was).

What do you think of these three celebs getting PETA’s dubious award?
