Leona Lewis - Leona Lewis would give up career for animal ban

Leona Lewis would give up her music career for a world ban on animal testing.

The pet-loving songstress - who shot to fame after winning the UK version of 'The X Factor' in 2006 -would stop singing if she had a choice between her work and halting the use of animals in scientific tests across the globe.

She said: ''[I would pick] a global ban. 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 28-year-old beauty - who has her own eco-friendly make-up range with The Body Shop - is glad the European Union has banned animal testing in Europe and hopes the rest of the world will soon follow suit.

She added to Cosmopolitan magazine: ''It's awesome. 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.''
