PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) sent Kelis a personalized letter criticzing her for wearing fur.
Kelis responded by writing back on her Myspace blog!
On wearing fur:
“Btw it’s not just the look of fur. It’s warm as hell and feels glorious, ever rubbed faux fur on your body? Nothing luxurious about that. Then the letter proceeded to name artist and designers who don’t wear real fur. I don’t judge them, don’t judge me.
“If I started wearing endangered animals like polar bear or orangutan then talk to me. (Which btw for the record I would not – I do believe in the preservation of endangered species) But the minks and chinchilla that quite honestly are rodents and if weren’t in the form of a coat I would demand they be put to death anyway are not an issue to me.”
On eating meat:
“There is no humane way to kill anything, let me start there. It’s unfortunate but it’s part of life. With that being said, I would eat pterodactyl if you found some and you told me it was meaty and delicious…I eat meat, and in fact my mouth salivates as I type the word meat!”
Not gonna lie, I’d have to agree with her! What do you think?
