If there’s one thing Ke$ha loves more than glitter it’s animals.
Known for riding elephants in music videos and wearing feathers onstage, the pop singer jumped at the chance to become the first global ambassador for the Humane Society.
In an interview with MTV, the starlet said with her new found role, she hopes to raise awareness on shark finning and cosmetics that test on animal.
“I take this opportunity incredibly seriously because we are ALL animals. One of the main underlying sentiments of my music is to respect all living creatures just as they are.” the Animal singer said in a recent statement.
It seems Ke$ha gets a bad rep for being the ultimate party girl, when in reality, she spends a lot of time and energy into organizations including the Human Rights Campaign, where she just designed a t-shirt for charity. Ke$ha shows as much love for humans as she does for animals. Back in May, she donated 1,000 pounds of pet food to a local shelter after floods devastated her birthplace of Nashville.
Kesha has been recognized by the Humane Society as the first ever Humane Society International Global Ambassador. Within this role, she is responsible for promoting respect, protection, and compassion for animals around the world.
Kesha said, “I am honored to be the first HSI Global Ambassador because my music is inspired by the freedom and primal beauty of animals and the natural world. I take this opportunity incredibly seriously because we are ALL animals. One of the main underlying sentiments of my music is to respect all living creatures just as they are. I believe that together, we can change laws that allow innocent animals to be unjustly mistreated and abused all over the world.”
HSI vice president Kitty Block echoed Kesha’s sentiments, saying, “We believe compassion for animals is a basic human condition that needs to be encouraged and celebrated. Kesha, with her passion for animals and international recognition is in a unique position to help us create a worldwide culture of compassion for animals.”
Ironically, Kesha’s debut album is called “Animal.” How appropriate.
