Salena Gomez shot her music video for next single "Love You Like A Love Song" yesterday.
The video features Ms. Gomez walking around some kind of futuristic/fantasy beach (Ke$ha or Gaga anyone?) with a blond man-model and two pink horses.
"If there are any animal activists around Malibu- at Leo Cabrillo State Beach, there are horses being painted for a stupid music video. Shame"
"Artists should be more aware and responsible for their actions."
We agree - no animal should be painted for something like a music video — especially when you have the budget to color them in editing.
Though, we don't miss the irony here, Pink.

Someone's go PETA feva!
In the ad campaign Bieber says:
“It’s really important that people adopt. I really encourage going out to an animal shelter or a place where you can get a dog who has been abandoned or doesn’t have a home.”
Aw. So sweet!
Bieber will be in Manila on May 10 for his “My Word Tour Concert.”
Other celebrities that have collaborated with PETA include Lea Michelle, Kellan Lutz, Pink, and Maggie Q.
Grammy-winner and expectant mother Pink has just sent a letter on PETA's behalf to President Barack Obama asking him to direct the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to reopen and prosecute three cases of egregious cruelty by the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
In 2006, the USDA told then-Senator Obama that it would "pursue appropriate enforcement action."
However, the three cases—which involve the deaths of a young lion and a baby elephant and the videotaped beating of another elephant—were closed with no action taken.
"The nation has recently witnessed such lax regulatory enforcement and abdication of responsibility in the cases of the West Virginia mining tragedy, the BP oil spill, and the banking scandals—with dire consequences. The USDA's Office of the General Counsel must be held accountable in the performance of its duties and the promise that animal protection will be secured under the law."
To reads Pink's entire letter go ATER THE JUMP!

Wearing nothing but strategically placed bling, rapper Waka Flocka Flame shows off his tattoos—and more—in his brand-new PETA campaign ad, which urges,
"Ink, Not Mink. Be Comfortable in Your Own Skin and Let Animals Keep Theirs."
Waka urges the hip-hop community to consider the animals who are cruelly killed for fur coats, collars, and cuffs.
"Understand where that fox fur came from before you spend $1,000…someone got their head beat in and electrocuted. Understand what you buy, instead of just going off fashion and what it looks like—that's what I'd tell my community."
The Flockaveli MC is the first rapper to star in PETA's iconic "Ink, Not Mink" campaign.
Other musicians who have joined with PETA to speak out against fur include Pink, Kid Sister, Mark Ronson, Linkin Park's Chester Bennington, Gym Class Heroes' Travie McCoy, Dave Navarro, Chuck D, Masta Killa, Murs, and Mario, among many others.
The trio of hawt pop stars will appear on a billboard being unveiled in Los Angeles today.
And yes, we know what EVERYONE is thinking.
Lady GaGa wore a meat dress! Why did PETA choose her!?
According to the animal rights organization:
"Gaga's out-there outfits never include real fur. Last year, when she wore a dress made of fluffy Kermit the Frog dolls, [she] explained, 'I thought it was commentary on not wearing fur, ’cause I hate fur and don't wear fur.' "
Pink has been in PETA's good graces for quite some time and even voiced a defenseless animal in a recent commercial they released.
Mariah famously donated a pair of full-length Russian sable coats she had received as gifts to PETA, who, in turn, gave them to homeless women at their winter "fur kitchen" event.
We couldn't be happier about this billboard because we think these ladies are all leading icons in pop culture and have the star power to inspire a new generation of fur-free thinkers!
Remember, every fur coat, vest, hat, or fur-trimmed accessory causes animals an immeasurable amount of suffering and ends their life!
Follow in these lovely ladies footsteps (not to mention ours) and be fur-free and fabulous for life!
What do U think of PETA's new billboard?
Advertisers have been dropping like birds out of the sky on New Years Eve in Arkansas from the controversial MTV show Skins, but PETA is offering to step in.
Despite rumors of cancellation due to declining ratings, MTV says it will air all ten episodes of the show with a little help from PETA.
The non-profit organization has offered up a 30-second spot featuring Pink and Ricky Gervais giving voice to a computer-generated alligator and rabbit who make the case that “exotic skins and fur belong on their original owners.”
PETA said in a statement:
“In light of the uproar surrounding the explicit content of MTV's new teen drama, Skins, and the show's resultant loss of sponsors, PETA is offering the network a chance to get some positive media attention as well as save animals' skins."
Not a bad marketing plan at all.
Hopefully advertising with younger viewers may inspire an entire new generation of animal activists!
We don’t know what’s cuter — Pink with her baby bump or her dog!
Pink and her friends were spotted yesterday hanging out at beach in Malibu and having a great time.
The baby bump looks slightly bigger but all attention was on her dog which spent time playing with the other pooches on the beach.
