Kelis received a personal letter from PETA after wearing a fur coat in public, and she decided to fire back, via a MySpace blog. It's long, but it's worth it. "I eat meat, and in fact my mouth salivates as I type the word meat! And the paint throwing that's just ridiculous! What if I was hurling Louboutins and Pierre Hardy's at every sad poorly dressed person on the street? As right as I may be it's just fanatical and crazy. And people have the right to feel as they please. What about art? Survival of the fittest. Natural selection? No let's just let all the rodents run free and over take our cities. Oh wait they have, NY and LA in particular are infested! Why don't u save them all from scavenging on the streets and ruining my evening strolls, take them home. Make them pets! Get off my back! Pun intended!...Quite honestly if you hate the world so much go live in the forest where no one else has to hear you complain about the perfectly good food chain the good Lord created." This from a woman whose latest haircut resembled a muskrat...that was pretty fun. [RapRadar]

The first legal male prostitute in America talked to Details magazine about the "stand" he's taking by having sex with people for money. "It's just the same as when Rosa Parks decided to sit at the front instead of the back. She was proclaiming her rights as a disadvantaged, African-American older woman. And I'm doing the same. I'm actually standing up now, and hopefully I can be supported by the male community and be understood as a person. This actually isn't about selling my body. This is about changing social norms." Totally. Apparently he was living in a homeless shelter before he became a full-fledged, sanctioned gigolo, so that's attractive. [Details]
