Video: Kellan Lutz Supports PETA's Animal Adoption Campaign

February 25, 2010 03:43:20 GMT


Kellan Lutz follows Christian Serratos' steps to become a spokesperson for PETA. But unlike his "Twilight" co-star, Lutz did not take off his clothes to promote animal adoption. Instead, he poses fully-clothed with his rescued mutt named Kola.

"It's our job to take [animals] under our wing and take care of them and give them a place to live," Lutz said on the campaign. According to the organization, more than 7 million cats and dogs are left at animal shelters in the U.S. and half of them must be euthanized due to lack of good homes. Lutz described the situation in shelters, saying "You can feel the pain that they go through."

Sade Remain Atop Billboard Hot 200

February 25, 2010 03:42:12 GMT


Sade easily secure the first position on Billboard Hot 200. Though shifting only 190,000 copies (down 62%) in its second week, they sit at the No. 1 slot for two consecutive weeks because there aren't any heavy contenders from new releases this week.

While the Top 10 of the U.S. albums chart was filled with four new entries last week, no newcomers can crack the chart this week. The highest debut comes from Story of the Year's "The Constant" which is only able to reach No. 42 with 14,000 units.
