The wife of Paul McCartney is threatening to stalk J-Lo. Not in a ‘hide in bushes near her house and watch her get changed’ way, but in a ‘go round her house and show her a video of some foxes getting chopped up’ way. Like you do.
In the eyes of the world, Jennifer Lopez (CDs) seems to be turning into
Cruella DeVille a little more each day. She’s often seen wearing fur
coats, and worse, she actually owns a company – Sweetface – that makes
fur clothes. And she’s probably got a room in her house full of
razor-sharp machinery spinning round all day where she slices up
puppies and stuff. Or not.
Jennifer’s preference for fur has been riling PETA – People
for the Ethical Treatment of Animals – for a long time, now. PETA
typically tries to use shock tactics to shame fur-wearers into
reticence, like throwing paint at people, or waggling dead animals
around and shouting. But J-Lo is proving to be a hard nut to crack, so
PETA have called in the big guns.
Heather Mills McCartney has been shipped in especially, it seems, to
be a high-profile agitator. Already this week police removed her from
New York fashion house J Crew, after she stormed the store wearing the
world’s poshest sandwich board – a huge plasma screen showing images of
animals being skinned alive. And now she’s gunning for Lopez.
First, Heather tried to invade the Sweetface offices, but to no
avail. After it became clear that J-Lo wasn’t in, security guards
escorted her from the premises. But Heather ain’t a quitter, no siree:
"PETA has tried for years to educate her about
fur, at first quietly and now like this. She keeps saying
she wants to be educated. So the next stage is I’ll find out where she
lives and show up there. And I’ll get a hold of her at her premieres."
Mills McCartney added:
"She needs to find some warmth inside her and penetrate that warmth in her heart."
Lady, she don’t need no warmth in her heart. All that fur probably keeps her nice and toasty.
