Lesson of the day: If you’re hanging with a bunch of noted animal-rights advocates at a fashion show, maybe that’s not the ideal time to start thinking aloud about how much you love fur. This reminder goes out to Kanye West, based on the following anecdote shared by Pink in the new issue of FHM Australia (spotted, where else, at Perez Hilton). Take it away, Pink!
“Kanye West is the person pissing me off right now. I was at Stella McCartney’s Paris fashion show with the vice president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Paul McCartney and Kanye West. The entire time Kanye is going, ‘They need more fur in this show.’ He just wouldn’t shut up about how he loved fur. I mean, he’s saying this to me, the PETA guy and Paul McCartney! I was just so grossed out by him. I’m like, ‘You’re an idiot!’ There are so many people who I think are a waste of skin and he’s up there. I should wear him. Go on, donate yourself Kanye. People can wear your fur.”
Ouch. No doubt this was a total faux pas on Kanye’s part, assuming this all went down the way Pink remembers it, but that’s one harsh response. (Really, Pink, a Kanye skin-suit? Paging Clarice Starling!) Do you share Pink’s outrage at Kanye’s alleged fur fandom? Or do you think her comeback went too far?
