“I prefer a big truck like a Range Rover. I drive one when I’m at home. I’m totally a Texas girl at heart. Put me in a cowboy hat behind the wheel of a massive truck and I’m happy. Driving a truck has been my dream since I was a little girl. My car’s like a baby, it means everything to me. I think about her every day. My sister’s hugely into environmental stuff, and she gives me a lot of heartache about it. She’s got a Lexus Hybrid car but that thing doesn’t look fun. When Range Rover makes a hybrid I’ll go green. Until then, my apologies to Planet Earth.”

— Singer Kelly Rowland on why going green doesn’t look like “any fun”

    I know it’s not pc, but good for her! Until China, India and the US decide to seriously tackle these issue, which I think will never happen, Kelly driving a gas guzzler will not make any difference!

    Excuse my ignorance, but can Range Rovers come in diesel friendly? As in Kelly Rowland can purchase biodiesel for “her baby”? Or in the least convert her Range Rover to accept biodiesel? She is incredibly rich after all and has the money to do that. Hopefully someone can get in touch with her and let her know she doesn’t have to chose anymore. I think it costs about $3000 for an SUV to be converted. I think.

    P.S. Celebaddict, that is a ridiculous statement. Just because our government doesn’t care doesn’t mean we as individuals should stop doing the right thing.
