Animal rights group PETA will stop at nothing until the whole world has been made aware of all forms of animal cruelty, even stretching to acts of barbarism like making half-famous women like Sadie Frost take their clothes off.
In the past, PETA has successfully persuaded several top-flight supermodels and various other desirable females to drop their clothes for its cause, most famously its 'I'd rather go naked than wear fur' campaign. However, the recruitment of Sadie Frost shows a new PETA tactic – hiring women who are sort of well-known for being married to rubbish filmstars to take their clothes off to promote PETA even though anyone who's seen the godawful 1997 movie Flypaper has seen it all anyway.
It's been announced that Sadie Frost, who most people will know as either a lesbian vampire or Jude Law's wife, is to go naked to help PETA's crusade against people treating animals like arseholes. Naked Sadie Frost is there to back up other PETA stunts like ambushing Beyonce at dinner and dressing Heather Mills McCartney up in a giant TV showing scenes of vivisection and making her chase Jennifer Lopez around and shouting about all the giraffe blood in Michael Jackson's garden and making Pamela Anderson pissed off at KFC.
In the past, the world's most beautiful people have lined up to help PETA spread its message. The famous "I'd rather go naked than wear fur" campaign saw several top supermodels standing about in the nude in the name of animal cruelty in the 1990s. However, this campaign had two big problems. 1) Most men would go and kick a dog in the head if it meant that Cindy Crawford would keep showing off her tumpsy in adverts and 2) Most of the supermodels all went and wore fur a few years later anyway, in effect changing the name of the campaign to "Being naked is OK, but wearing fur and injecting shit into my face all the time is brilliant!"
So now PETA is changing tactics. We knew something was up when PETA said that Prince was sexy, but now it has drafted in backwards-looking 1990s Cool Britannia hanger-on Sadie Frost – most recently seen listlessly standing around in the background during all that Jude Law/ Sienna Miller nonsense last year – to go naked too. Naked Sadie Frost will front a PETA campaign where Naked Sadie Frost shows you her back and says "Turn your back on fur." Clever stuff, huh?
Now, Naked Sadie Frost had to make a statement about the 'Turn Your Back On Fur' PETA campaign and – given that we already know that a) you see Naked Sadie Frost's naked back and b) the campaign is called 'Turn Your Back On Fur', Naked Sadie Frost really needed to think hard for something clever and witty to say in her statement instead of just repeating what everybody could already see with their eyes like a big dumb twat. And did she?
"Peta's anti-fur campaign is basically about turning your back on fur. Through doing the naked photo, people will hopefully stop and look at the campaign."
That'll be a no, then.
