    PETA are a bunch of hypocritical assholes. They need to leave people alone, they think that by doing this they’re doing something positive, but I never heard of such a thing as purposely trying to ruin someone’s career is a “good and ethical” thing to do. Bunch of pricks. PS, I’m not just saying this because it’s related to Jennifer, I have always had a deeply seeded hate for PETA.

    yeah nothing comes between J.Lo and her money! I have to say that I was a little irritated to find out she knows how the rabbits are killed and just doesn’t care. someone should ask her…jen, don’t you think it would hurt to be skinned alive? oh wait..if it doesn’t concern her next million or her next husband what’s it matter right?

    People have different views on different things, such is the beauty of life. I don’t’, ‘find anything the least bit repulsive about wearing fur. I enjoy fur, and appreciate it for what it is, even though animals are killed for their fur, there are other areas that PETA could be attacking but are not. Why not go after the fur farms? Why not go after the people in the ghetto that host dog fights? Why not go after the people that raise *****s just to teach them to fight and kill each other? Why go after one person, when knowing full and well that if that one person stopped wearing fur it is in no way going to make that considerable a dent in the fur industry that their purpose would be served?

    “When radio bigwigs read of her callousness”?? What, radio bigwigs like Clear Channel are run by paragons of virtue? They won’t give a damn. They’re motivated by MONEY, period.

    It’s obvious why PETA “attack” celebrities…’, ‘… for wearing fur. They are in the public eye, damn near 24/7, they should be setting a better example. Yes, you’ll be biased as you’re a fan, and that’s rad, whatever, it’s your prerogative if you choose to admire and follow the ideals of someone you really like. Personally, I’d never wear real fur. Seriously, dude, what’s the point? The faux stuff looks better anyway, if that’s what you’re into. It’s called too much damn money and a selfish attitude. The reality is PETA have nothing to do with bad record sales because her fans, loyal fans, would buy her record and support her regardless.

  6. JLOVER101 says:

    Sorry boo, but your philosophy is erred in more ways than one.’, ‘1. I hate Giselle and when they attacked her I was on her side too. (I hate PETA) 2. I’ve been wearing fur since before I knew who the hell Jennifer Lopez was (I hate PETA) 3. My hate for PETA has absolutely nothing to do with their attacks on any one or multiple celebrities, just on their hypocrisy and the fact that rather than tackling real animal rights issues, they spend their time trying to make people see things their way, when it’s clear that people that wear fur could really care less what they think. (I HATE PETA) 4. They’ve ruined two of my fur coats, and for that they’ll never be forgiven. (Fu** PETA)

  7. TheAngryPrincess says:

    I wasn’t dogging on you, dude, I…’, ‘… just choose not to wear it, real or not. (It wouldn’t really go with my style and my band would kick my ass, ha.) True, there are extremists but I think they attack celebrities and socialites etc. to get a reaction and publicity from the media. And in a reverse round-about-way get awareness for their cause.

  8. JLOVER101 says:

    you said something like’, ‘”if you choose to follow someone you really like” and I just wanted you to know that my opinion on that subject was independent of Jennifer’s doings.

  9. TheAngryPrincess says:

    Yeah, that’s rad, dude…’, ‘… but you sometimes get people who take their liking of a singer/actress/model/rockstar to the extreme, that’s what I meant, mostly. Or, say, parts of your image are inspired by. eg: a couple of my tattoos and piercings are in memory or inspirations of my favorite bands.

  10. JLOVER101 says:

    I know what you mean, especially on this site. But even if they were going after’, ‘Madonna, I would still defend her from those vile pigs. (sorry, did I mention I hate PETA?) Anyway, you play in a band?

    People could care less about Jlo and her fur. The Rebirth album is doing badly because it sucks. Janet had “Damita Jo” Mariah had “Glitter” and Jlo has “Rebirth” I think the whole Ben thing screwed her up.
