One of Janet Jackson’s fans recently sold all of his Janet memorabilia after hearing about the singer’s new fur clothing line with Blackglama. All of the proceeds from the fan’s auctioned items are being donated to PETA, and they’re not too pleased with Jackson’s decision to sell animal skins either.

According to Ace Showbiz, the animal rights organization has placed her right at the top of their list of ‘Celebrity Grinches of 2011.’ PETA writes, “When Janet Jackson had her infamous ‘wardrobe malfunction’ during the Super Bowl, at least the flesh that popped into view was her own—unlike the stolen animal skins that she drapes herself with, which are as dead as her taste in fashion (not to mention her career). Ms. Jackson, you’re just plain nasty.”

Ms. Jackson wasn’t the only celeb to make PETA’s naughty list this year. The second spot went to Cameron Crowe for his film ‘We Bought a Zoo.’ PETA has previously spoken out against the movie for its use of real animals and its message that anyone can own exotic animals. Kim Kardashian is also on the list. Apparently, PETA’s recent billboard has not deterred the reality star from wearing fur.

    PETA’s shock value and scare tactics are not going to stop these celebrities from doing what they like. They have been attacking Janet for the last year ONLY (professionally AND personally) and have not gone after the company. I’m over PETA, I wish they’d try a new approach.

    Regarding the MANY organizations that are TF’d (totally focused) on what they DO NOT WANT; I can only pray they will realise the error in their thinking and the harm inflicted by this lack of consciousness.
    What we focus on unquestionably grows – life experience and common sense has proven this a million times over in my life and in the world in general. I have no doubt, that the more I focus on the “good”, the more it comes in to my life.
    Magical – I think not…. It seems the core of all spiritual practices boils down to this clear and basic principal.
    Namaste….
