* BRISBANE popettes the Veronicas are again hawking for PETA in a new macabre anti-fur campaign. After finally scoring a campaign with the violent lobby last year singer Jessica Origliasso declared she was 'pushing the assumption of what people think they know about The Veronicas'. Indeed.
* Busty Pamela Anderson, perennial ambassador-at-large for PETA, has given a lecture at Oxford University. Altogether avoiding the topic of physics, Anderson told the student union she believed vegetarianism was 'better for your health'. Accompanied by PETA mouthpiece Dan Matthews she said after the event that 'I think we had a really profound effect on the audience.'
* Victoria Beckham is the target of a new PETA campaign to stop her from using animal skins in her designs, according to the Mirror. The paper claims the lobby is threatening to pull 'its most controversial stunt ever' - by dousing her in lizard blood . The paper states:
'One of the ideas being mooted is that Victoria gets covered in a bucket of animal blood - cow or lizard - at her next UK public appearance. Another rather sick suggestion was to pelt crocodile feet at her when she goes to an editors' lunch in London next month. Victoria tries not to surround herself with bodyguards but her security has had to be increased.' Beckham meanwhile is refusing to cave in.
