Janet Jackson: PETA Slams Singer for Fur Fashion Line

As AOL Music reports, Janet Jackson is catching heat from animal rights group PETA for her affiliation with fur fashion company Blackglama. The legendary singer is the face of the “What Becomes A Legend Most?” campaign for the Blackglama … her second year as celebrity spokesperson for the company.

However, Jackson’s partnership with the animal-unfriendly company has landed her in the crosshairs of PETA, who’ve just named her the “Grinch of the Year 2011.”

When Janet Jackson had her infamous ‘wardrobe malfunction’ during the Super Bowl, at least the flesh that popped into view was her own,” writes PETA’s Jeff Mackey. “Unlike the stolen animal skins that she drapes herself with, which are as dead as her taste in fashion (not to mention her career). Ms. Jackson, you’re just plain nasty.”

Harsh words indeed — and ones that have yet to be responded to by “Grinch” Jackson or Blackglama.

Yet despite PETA’s harsh criticism, Jackson’s career as a spokesmodel is heating up. Besides her endorsement deal with the fur company, Janet was just announced as the new celebrity face of Nutrisystem weight loss program.
