In what many would consider one of the oddest promotional relationships to ever be cemented, the Humane Society has deemed glitter-crazy pop bad girl, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Ke$ha[/lastfm], as its first-ever Humane Society Global Ambassador.
It makes perfect sense to us. Especially with her love of animal print, feathers, and her unfettered love of those furry animal hats the club kids call “Spirit hoods.”
[pullquote quote="One of the main underlying sentiments of my music is to respect all living creatures just as they are." credit="Kesha"]Kesha won’t just be busy being an “Animal.” The singer proclaimed her excitement over being the first-ever Humane Society International Global Ambassador.
“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.”
The appropriately named HSI vice president, Kitty Block, also said she was very happy with the choice of Kesha for HSI Global Ambassador:
“We believe compassion for animals is a basic human condition that needs to be encouraged and celebrated. Kesha, with her passion for animals and international recognition is in a unique position to help us create a worldwide culture of compassion for animals.”
One of the first things Kesha will do is try to get fan to sign the HIS’s Cruel-Free 2012 petition which will ensure that the EU (European Union) honors its commitment to ban animal-tested cosmetics by 2013.
One the EU becomes cruelty-free, hopefully other countries around the world, like the US, will follow suit.
What will Kesha be doing with her “Animals?” What every girl does. Duhz.
And now I'm learning about sea creatures and painting my nails—
