Animals have a friend in Leona Lewis… who said she'd give up her ENTIRE career if that meant nobody would be allowed to test on animals ever again!
Part of us would be pumped if nobody did frivolous animal testing ever again, but part of us would be bummed not to have Leona Lewis's music! Such a catch 22!
Here's what she said about it all:
'I could still do my music in any capacity if I wanted to, but I think it’s just so important for humans to show compassion. They say you can judge a society on how it treats its animals, and I think that’s very true – it all filters down.
'The EU ban will put pressure on the rest of the world: they won’t be able to sell their animal-tested products in Europe any longer, so it makes financial sense that they replace their animal tests with alternative methods if they want to trade in this lucrative market.'
Now THAT's dedication!
We love it when we see famous people standing up for things — and we're even more proud when the things they're standing up for are cute and cuddly!
Keep up the amazing work, Leona!
