And it's not just her. After spending nearly 1 hour flicking constantly through the music channels there are alot of singers that are wearing fur.

J-Lo wears about 4 or 5 different ones in her new video along with the rapper.

I can't believe they do it. Am officially no longer a J-Lo fan.

yes. apparently it is back in fashion again.
Naomi campbell (among others) has been wearing fur, despite taking part in a big campaign a few years ago about not wearing it!

Are they real?
It's expensive so they have the bling. As they sing and rap about selling drugs and shooting people they're hardly going to be bothered about a fluffy bunny.

Said on my local radio station today that she wants to be known as Jennifer Anthony now. Doesn't quite have the same ring does it?

Good point HD.

In answer to the thread question- cause she's a selfish twat who cares about no other creature other than herself. Look at the way she has treated some of her men!! Why would she care about a creature she's never met as long as it makes her look (in her opinion) good?

Well thats that then

Yup!!

although... how many of us wear leather shoes?

agree with starlove - I cannot abide Naomi Campbell; went a long with the whole "I'd rather go naked than wear fur" then, as soon as fur is in fashion again, she's got it draped all over her. And people like Kate Moss, they shoudl know better.
THink J-Lo's just dim (not that that's an excuse).

Flossam Fri 15-Apr-05 17:18:23

Nope - can't afford such things here!! Priceless shoes for me!!!

it takes a hell of a lot more minks to make a mink coat than it does to make a pair of shoes out of a cow hide. Also, leather is one by product of the cow, minks and the like are killed soley for fur.

I once wanted a pair of boots from Dune.

They had a fur trim on the top and I was sure it was fake to start with. The assistant said it was rabbit fur which had come from France as they eat alot of Rabbit there apparently so the Rabbits killed for meat had their fur used up.

Possums are killed in Aus as they are a pest.

they can't get that much leather from cows surely? think of all the joints of meat you buy that still have skin on....

starlover Fri 15-Apr-05 18:11:48

anyway, the point I am making is that you cannot condemn people for killing animals and wearing their fur if you wear shoes that are made from dead animals too.

LOL Flossam... there is a shoe shop in brighton called vegetarian shoes!
