Time for a Britney-PETA update. And no, they're not being cunts this time!
PETA publicly slammed Britney last December for using elephants in her "Circus" music video, saying: "Britney is such a victim of the paparazzi and always complaining and crying about how she hates to be held up in her guarded house and can't feel free, she of all people should be able to relate to the horror that captive animals go through when they're used for entertainment. Except Britney chooses to perform, and the lifestyle just comes with it."
Looks like Brit learned her lesson!
According to a statement from PETA President Ingrid Newkirk via Radaronline.com, PETA is very pleased to see Britney will NOT be using live animals on her upcoming "Circus" tour, saying:
"PETA praises Britney for embracing modern animal-free circuses like Cirque du Soleil which spotlight human creativity and talents instead of forcing chained and beaten exotic animals to perform confusing and uncomfortable tricks as they do in one of those outdated Ringling Bros. shows. Now Britney won't risk winding up in court on cruelty charges, while Ringling is in court this week over serious allegations of repeated mistreatment of elephants."
Newkirk claims PETA will send a "thank you" note and flowers to Britney for her wise decision.
Anyway, back to eating my hamburger!
