alo-000211It’ official! Kelly Clarkson has cancelled her July 9th performance at the Calgary Stampede. You see, she knows, like we do, that rodeo’s are NEVER cool.

This same kind of thing seems to happen every year. A VEGtastic animal-loving celebrity gets booked at a rodeo unbeknownst to them. The VEGtastic animal-loving celebrity finds out that rodeos = animal exploitation and refuses to perform at the venue. The story usually ends with the rodeo suing the celeb, but hopefully that won’t happen this time.

We’re pleased as punched that Kelly won’t be supporting the rodeo. According to PETA

“Standard rodeo events include calf roping, steer wrestling, bareback horse and bull riding, saddle bronc riding, steer wrestling, steer roping, and barrel racing. The animals used in rodeos are captive performers. Most are relatively tame but understandably distrustful of humans because of the harsh treatment that they have received.”
