Simpson Targetted Over Seaworld Show

PETA bosses have taken aim at JESSICA SIMPSON over the pop star's plans to perform at SeaWorld in San Diego, California this weekend (09May09).
People for The Ethical Treatment of Animals' special projects manager Michelle Cho has written a stern note to Simpson and her manager/father Joe, asking them to consider pulling the concert in protest about the dolphins kept in captivity at the tourist hotspot.
In the letter, obtained exclusively by WENN, Cho writes, "As someone who is used to living in a fishbowl and having the public weigh in on her every move, you might like to give some thought to the animals who are forced to be 'on display' their entire lives.
"Imagine being forced to do stupid tricks and swim endless circles in a bathtub. Life for whales, dolphins, polar bears, and fish who live in tanks and cages is like a bad reality show that plays 24/7. There are no commercial breaks, and the show is never cancelled.
"In 2004, the stress of performing at SeaWorld proved to be too much for one orca (whale) named Ky. After becoming agitated during a show, Ky attacked and repeatedly slammed his trainer underwater as a packed crowd looked on in horror.
"SeaWorld, which owns most of the captive orcas and dolphins in the U.S., has one of the worst animal-care records in the country. Countless animals have lived and died in misery in these marine theme parks.
"We're asking you to support the dolphins. Please reconsider your decision to perform at SeaWorld and promise not to appear at venues that exploit animals in the future."

Why is it that whenever Contact Music runs a story about Jessica, they accompany the article with one of the least flattering pictures they can find? Jess has beautiful hair but the photo makes her look like an immigrant that just got off the boat. And the blouse looks like it belongs at some seaside resort. C'mon friends, lets have a few pictures of Jess that portray her as the beautiful blonde that she is.
