Don’t count Pamela Anderson as a fan of Janet Jackson now that the singer has signed on as the new face for luxury fur label Blackglama’s “What Becomes a Legend Most” campaign. In an interview with Out magazine, Anderson, a longtime animal rights activist, voiced her opinion on Jackson’s decision to wear fur in the ads. “It’s disappointing. She has spoken out against fur before. I don’t know why some people stop listening to their heart. I guess some people get greedy, but it’s sad.” PETA Senior Vice President Dan Mathews also sent Jackson a letter questioning her controversial choice. “You and I spoke at length about the fur issue. You told me that you were always aggravated at photo shoots when stylists would try to throw fur on you and that you were even wary of wearing fake fur out of concern that it might actually be real or look real in photos and send the wrong message. You were very straightforward and sensible about it. What happened?” Jackson joins a host of Hollywood legends who have appeared in the black-and-white ad campaign including: Diana Ross, Elizabeth Taylor, Lena Horne and Lauren Bacall. In a behind-the-scenes video from the shoot Jackson said, “If someone would have told me later in life that I would be alongside such legendary entertainers, I would have never believed it.” –Samantha McIntyre
