Wow! Ke$ha has just been named the FIRST Global Ambassador for the Humane Society International. Vice president of the HSI, Kitty (ha!) Block said:
“We believe compassion for animals is a basic human condition that needs to be encouraged and celebrated. Ke$ha, with her passion for animals and international recognition is in a unique position to help us create a worldwide culture of compassion for animals.”
Totally digging the new title, Ke$ha responded:
“I am honored to be the first HSI Global Ambassador because my music is inspired by the freedom and primal beauty of animals and the natural world. I take this opportunity incredibly seriously because we are ALL animals.
One of the main underlying sentiments of my music is to respect all living creatures just as they are. I believe that together, we can change laws that allow innocent animals to be unjustly mistreated and abused all over the world."
Ke$ha is asking her fans to join her in signing the HSI’s Cruelty-Free 2013 petition. The petition is to make sure the European Union honors its commitment to ban the sale of all cosmetics that were tested on animals by 2013.
Maybe that’s something the U.S. should consider doing.
Don’t U think so??
