P!nk is the latest celebrity to pose nude for PETA as part of their “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” campaign.
Photographed by Ruven Afanador, the black-and-white snapshot shows P!nk smiling wide as she sits with her knees pulled up to her chest. There is ample sideboob, and a number of the singer’s tattoos are visible. The image will appear on a 90-foot-wide billboard erected in Times Square late Wednesday, timed to New York Fashion Week, when designers often showcase clothing with fur and celebrities show up wearing it.
P!nk says in a statement, “Animals are the purest spirits in the world. They don’t fake their feelings, and they are the most loyal creatures on Earth. I would like to say I’ve always been fur-free so I could be proud of myself. Unfortunately, I went through a selfish phase and wore fur on a couple of occasions. But I wised up and now boycott fur completely. I wish everyone was forced to learn the horrors that these animals go through for fashion trends. I hope fur wearers get bitten in the a** by the same kind of animal they wear on their back.”
The star, who embraces a mostly vegan diet, previously worked with PETA in 2009 on a video called “Stolen for Fashion,” which used her voice to bring an alligator life as she confronts a couple wearing her animal skin. P!nk now joins Eva Mendes, Olivia Munn, Wendy Williams, Taraji P. Henson and other celebrities who have posed nude for the animals rights organization.
