Janet Jackson - Jackson Tops First Peta Grinch Poll

Janet Jackson has been named the Grinch of the Year in a new poll compiled by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and WENN.
Peta bosses looked back over the year (11) to find the three celebrities they are most at odds with over their fur-wearing, animal exploiting ways and Jackson's plans to team up with fur firm Blackglama for a new line of pelts gave her the clear edge.
Peta spokeswoman Wendy Wegner tells WENN, "While the holidays may be known as the season of giving and peace on earth, that's not always the case for our animal friends.
"When Janet Jackson had her infamous wardrobe malfunction during Super Bowl Xxxviii, at least what popped into view of 170 million onlookers belonged to her, unlike the animal skins she drapes herself in, which are as dead as her fashion taste and her career."
Also making the WENN/Peta Grinch list for 2011: moviemaker Cameron Crowe and reality TV star Kim Kardashian.
Wegner explains, "Cameron Crowe went retro in the worst way for his latest film, We Bought a Zoo, which relied on the performing-animal industry, in which the 'actors' are routinely neglected and even abused. He should have used modern computer-generated imagery. Exploiting live animals to tell a story about saving animals?
"And it took Kim Kardashian just 72 days of marital bliss to shed her husband Kris Humphries. It's too bad the socialite princess doesn't have the same penchant for shedding her animal skin collection. Unlike her sister Khloe, who starred in her own Peta anti-fur campaign, Kim just can't seem to divorce herself from fur and say 'I do' to a more compassionate wardrobe."
