Janet Jackson might have received praise for recent performances on American Idol, at Essence Music Festival and mixed reviews for her portrayal of Dr. Patricia in “Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married Too?”. What she received from PETA in a statement Friday was far from that however. In fact, PETA says they’re surprised that Jackson would stoop as low, with her career “on the downslide,” appearing in mink for Blackglama.

“It’s amazing what celebrities will do when their careers are on a downslide, but we didn’t think that Janet was this desperate. Surely she knows enough about suffering and unjustified death to recognize that both occur in the production of a fur coat,” PETA wrote. “We are asking her to think again and to donate these stolen skins to be used as bedding for animals orphaned by other human-caused disasters, such as loss of habitat.”

Blackglama has chosen Janet Jackson to be featured in the brand’s “What Becomes a Legend Most?” ad campaign !

Joining previously featured icons like Diana Ross and Elizabeth Taylor, Jackson’s ‘What Becomes a Legend Most?’ campaign was shot by Rocco Laspata.

“For decades, Blackglama has represented the finest, most exclusive mink in the world,” Joe Morelli, CEO of Blackglama said in a statement. “Janet is an icon in the world of music and entertainment, a true legend. She represents everything that this storied campaign embodies. Janet is to entertainment what Blackglama is to luxury.”

This fall, ads will run in magazines like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and WWD before being seen in similar publications in Japan, China, Russia and France.
