Joss Stone is the face of a new online PETA ad aimed at turning music fans into vegetarians.
British soul star Joss Stone is supportive towards People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). The music recording artist is starring in a new PETA's online advertisement promoting vegetarianism.
Once voted the World's Sexiest Vegetarian in a 2005 PETA poll, Stone poses with a chicken in the ad reads, "I'm a singer, a songwriter, a performer, and a human being accepting of all sizes, shapes, colors and species. I am Joss Stone and I am a vegetarian."
Explaining her reasons for doing the ad, Stone said "I feel there is no need to cause another living thing pain or harm. There are so many other things we can eat. I have never eaten meat in my life, and I'm five feet 10 inches and not exactly wasting away. A wise man once said, 'Animals are my friends and I'm not in the habit of eating my friends.' That is exactly how I feel."
