10 Celebrities Who've Been Slammed By PETA

The worst people you can ever piss off is the People of Ethical Treatment of Animal Rights. PETA will go to war with some of your favorite celebs in order to promote their cause, having been known to throw red paint and flour on famous peeps who wear fur, talk about animals in a cruel way, or do anything they don't like with animal skin.

Sure, there are a few celebs who'd rather go naked than wear fur, but these rebel celebs are not backing down to PETAs rule of thumb. -- Terry Carter
1. PETA vs. Kim Kardashain
Kanye's baby momma Kim Kardashian made headlines recently when she was flour bombed by PETA while promoting her fragrance overseas. She was quickly removed from the red carpet and made a quick dress change. Kim is known for her love of fur boots and coats, so we can bet little Kimye will be rockin' some fur as well.

2. PETA vs. Lady Gaga
PETA put their paws on the Mother Monster after she showed up to the 2010 Video Music Awards in a memorable meat dress. PETA asked the pop star to trade in her meat dress for a dress made of lettuce, and strangely, we can actually see Gaga in something like that.

3. PETA vs. Kanye
We all know Kanye loves attention, even from PETA. In his 2012 song "Theraflu" Mr. West spit standout lyric, "Someone tell PETA my mink is draggin’ on the floor." PETA didn't give 'Ye a chance to finish his verse before they had something to say. "What’s draggin’ on the floor is Kanye’s reputation as a man with no empathy for animals or human beings."

Rihanna PETA

4. PETA vs. Rihanna
Bad girl RiRi doesn't give zero you-know-what's, especially when it comes to PETA. She was spotted rockin' snakeskin boots in London. PETA didn't think she looked so sexy, saying "Rihanna may not have a clue that snakes killed for boots are often nailed to a tree and skinned alive. Of course, they can't go on Oprah to cry about it." Ouch.

5. PETA vs. Beyoncé
When you're royalty like Beyoncé, you must have more than a few mink coats in your closet. PETA once confronted Bey at a private dinner in 2006 which was captured on video. Just recently, she performed at the Super Bowl wearing iguana and cow skin to much chagrin of the animal-friendly organization.

6. PETA vs. 50 Cent
50 Cent is known for picking fights with everyone, but he wasn't expecting to feud with PETA. He jokingly posted a picture of himself pretending to stab his dog named Oprah in the leg. PETA saw the picture and informed him on the daily mistreatment of dogs around the world. 50's response: "Stay off my motherf*cking twitter page I don't give a f*ck!" Um, we're still trying to figure out why his dog name is Oprah?

7. PETA vs. Chris Brown
When Chris Brown announced that he would be selling his own breed of puppies on Twitter, PETA raised eyebrows on his true intention for the dogs. PETA said, "This is a money-making scheme, and Brown will count the suckers who fall for it as he counts the money on the way to the bank. Shelters will count the bodies in the barrel."

8. PETA vs. Janet Jackson
Janet Jackson has been a spokesperson the fur fashion line of Blackglama since 2010, which PETA wasn't feeling and had some nasty words to say about it. "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." wrote PETA's Jeff Mackey.

9. PETA vs. Kelis
Kelis definitely marches to the beat of her own drum. She lashed out in an open letter against the PETA group for condemning her use of fur in her eccentric outfits. Surprisingly, PETA calmly responded by telling her to educate herself about the abuse and torture animals suffer for her to look good in their skin/fur.

10. PETA vs. Jennifer Lopez
J. Lo ticked off PETA when she wore fox fur for her 2011 Vanity Fair photo shoot. PETA called her "arrogant and ignorant" for her outfit  choice, adding, "Maybe the real story behind their breakup is that Marc Anthony left because he couldn't stand looking into her morgue of a closet." Low blow.

CupcakKe Reveals Abusive Boyfriend Led Her To Contemplate Suicide

Months of abuse led to the suicidal tweet posted by Chicago native CupcakKe, earlier this month. In a lengthy message posted to her Twitter account over the weekend, the 21-year-old rapper admitted that she’s been battling depression, brought on by an abusive ex-boyfriend.

In the post titled “my disturbing read,” CupcakKe accuses a man named, Christopher Terrell, of stealing her credit cards and terrorizing her throughout their relationship.

“This is someone I’ve been dating for the past [five] months,” she wrote in the now deleted post. “Out of the kindness of my heart I gave this man over [$30,000] during this period [of] time because I understand how it feels to be without (especially after me being homeless). He also has threatened to shoot my mom in the face [and] has threatened me on multiple occasions [and] said he can do it because he will get away with it!!!! I have screenshots, recorded calls, bank statements and all types of proof.

“Me being stupid in love I have [taken] this man back multiple times but every time I take him back the abuse gets [worse],” she added.

Further in the post, CupcakKe explains that her depression from feeling trapped in the relationship resulted in her contemplating suicide. “He [has] snatched off my wig in public, broke phones [and] continues to traumatize me every step of the way! This is what [led] to my ‘I’m committing suicide’ tweet…I have called the cops multiple times and they have yet to do anything about it,” she wrote adding that Terrell is threatening her with revenge porn. She also admitted to posting his number on social media, and the numbers of women that he “plotted” with  to steal her money.

“Yes I am wrong for that,” she said. “But by me sending this message out it is not for harm to be sent his way, it’s for the police to make things way more serious!!!! Also this message is for every young girl or anyone in general that is struggling with abuse right now. I get u (once you see the first sign) leave!!!”

Read the full post below.

@Chicago_Police y’all really need to do something about @CupcakKe_rapper and her situation, she’s mentioned reaching out to y’all multiple times about this and nothings happened! Please do something before it’s too late...

Kelly Rowland Says Her Highly-Anticipated Project Is "Definitely Coming"

Six years ago, Kelly Rowland released her fourth studio album titled Talk a Good Game. The project boasted hit singles like "Kisses Down Low" and the transparent "Dirty Laundry." Now, the Houston native is preparing to release a project that'll surely satisfy fans' patient earbuds.

In an interview with Billboard, Rowland shared her hopes for putting out a new body of work and the pressure that she's encountered since she's been in the studio. "This is by far the longest, most pressure-filled process ever, only because I know what it's supposed to be and I have been so hard on myself. I know it," she said. "And it's the first time I've said it out loud. I've been extremely hard on myself. But it's definitely coming, and I'm more so excited about this project than anything else."

The news follows the recent release of Rowland's "Kelly" track, which was met with critical acclaim in November 2018. In addition to preparing the release of new music, the "Motivation" singer discussed fans' wish for a Destiny's Child reunion. The rumors have been fueled by social media photographs of Rowland with either Beyonce or Michelle or all three, especially during Beyonce's past Coachella performance. But Rowland assures readers that it's not what they think.

"It's so funny. I guess every time people see us together, they just see music but I see sisterhood, and that's what we are and that's what me, her, Michelle [Williams] and Solange and I are. People see us all together, they immediately think music. I'm like, no. Just family." As Rowland previously mentioned Solange, she hopes to one day work with her again.

"I'm a huge fan," she said. "I love her writing and how detailed and particular she is. I always wanted to figure out how the heck she has so many different layers of harmonies when she is constructing these vocals, and it's so complex but simple. It's genius. It's the genius in her genius mind that she has in there." One of the last times the pair collaborated was on Rowland's "Simply Deep" track off her debut solo album of the same name. Solange also penned a few songs off the same project. Fast forward to 2016, and Rowland's vocals were featured on Solange's iconic A Seat at the Table.

Teyana Taylor To Pay Homage To Ballroom Culture In "WTP" Video

Teyana Taylor aims to keep her hot streak of innovative videos coming thanks to this recent announcement. Taking to Instagram on Wednesday (Jan. 9), the "Gonna Love Me" singer will show adoration to ballroom culture in the visual for "WTP."

Directed by Gregory "Beef" Jones, The Aunties Inc., and Taylor herself, the Harlemite takes viewers on her journey to the expression-filled space where she hopes to rack up 10s across the board from a group of judges. The premise of the video also seems to follow a mockumentary format airing on a fictional network named FEMTV. Alongside Taylor, other men and women get ready to display their talents and confidence on the ballroom floor.

"WTP" is featured on the mother-of-one's sophomore album, K.T.S.E., which was released in June 2018. While the rollout's controversy didn't entirely muddle the excitement behind the project's debut, Taylor said she was sold on the idea that her album would be treated as the biggest out of G.O.O.D. Music's string of releases last year.

"I didn't know ahead of time that there wouldn't be any singles or visuals. But I knew that it was going to be the five-album thing," she said during a HOT 97 interview. "[Kanye] wanted [my album] to be last, he wanted mine to be the biggest. That's the way they sauced it up. I was sold."

The video will debut on Jan. 19. Check out the teaser below.
