Stella's Mad at Madonna

Stella's Mad at Madonna

PETA called Madonna out for wearing fur last week, and now her good friend Stella McCartney is speaking out about it. In fact, Stella is so pissed that she is even comparing it to someone taking their children and killing them to wear their skin. Here's more:

“Stella started off with a gentle lecturing, but she just seemed to get louder and louder. Madonna was trying to calm her down saying, ‘Oh, let’s change the subject’ but she wouldn’t let it go,” a source told the London Mirror. “Stella was ranting that it was murderous, and she started saying, ‘What would you do if someone took away your children and killed them to wear their skin?’” Madonna thought she could get off the hook explaining the coat was vintage and the critters long-dead, but McCartney was having none of it.

We hope these pics make Stella happy - Madonna went to the gym not wearing fur. More of Madonna so

LMAO...Animal Haters??? I have a cat and TWO gerbils whom I love dearly...okay, I don't care for the gerbils, but I LOVE my cat. Now I'm going to put on my suede coat, go get myself a turkey sandwich and think about what kind of BEEF I'm having for dinner. And NOT ONCE am I going to feel bad about any of it. That does NOT mean that I HATE animals. I just choose not to spend my time advocating for animals who only survive because we breed them - for use. Name calling and truth telling are VERY different. Name calling is just juvenile and does not get your point across.

Good for you Stella, I applaud YOU!!! That shows you that sometimes fashionable people have brains. Learn from this animal haters. You will always get the Truth from me!

Well said, Butrfly. Also, I would like to point out that no matter what you're eating, if you're anti-fur or anti-meat, I hope you're not eating your meals off of bone china, because it's just what its name sounds like - bone. From animals. The problem with "anti" groups is that their goal IS to impose their beliefs on the rest of us. So, you can't preach tolerance, love, and acceptance if you're not willing to tolerate, love, and accept people who don't share your beliefs.

If we didn't raise cows to be eaten (or for their hides), they would be extinct. They are not smart enough animals to survive on their own. Maybe it's cruel the way they do it, but that's how they have to do it to make the meat edible. Think it's wrong all you want and don't eat meat. That doesn't bother me at all. But when actual GROUPS set out to make it so I can't go to the supermarket and buy my husband a steak, they are then affecting me. It's like atheists who want Christmas decorations down. If you don't celebrate Christmas, that's decorations aren't affecting your life - me having a wreath up isn't hurting you. But when you make people take down their decorations and impose your religion-less life on me, you are affecting me. I'm very open and accepting and it's totally fine that everyone believes whatever they want. Don't attack me for my beliefs and I won't retaliate. Don't impose your beliefs on me and we'll get along just fine.

Sure, Madonna is an easy target-Buy a Baby, Wear Animals, Crucify yourself on the Gayest Cross you can find. It's becoming quite passe' to comment on anything she does. These PETA people make it damn near impossible to see the good in their cause. Nearly every time i hear about them it's always them attacking someone. There's nothing wrong with your personal choice. I think the main problem with high profile activists groups is that they think it's okay to berate and assault people who don't agree with them.

I understand, Skye, I have heated conversations with my friends, too, but when it gets to the point where one person asks to change the subject, you don't just keep pounding away at them, you know? That's when it becomes disrespectful and very un-friendly.

I get into heated arguments over politics, religion, etc with my friends too. It's a part of friendship. And fur is such a heated topic. I'm anti-fur, and I can barely keep my cool when people start defending wearing fur. That's why I've learned to make changes in my own life and lead by example.

It's one thing to have a strong opinion and to voice it respectfully, but I'd ditch any "friend" that bitched me out like that.

Unfortunately the problem with extreme outcries like the one made by Stella is that it makes her look very extreme and creates backlash from the average consumer. This is unfortunate because Stella and PETA have their hearts in the right place and are doing important work that in the future will be regarded as the important first steps towards animal rights. This is an emotional subject and often PETA members cannot control their emotions and it makes them look fanatical. Look at some of the comments left by members here and you can see why animal activists often lose their cool ... many members here eat burgers buy leather and fur etc.. and simply turn a blind eye to the cruel industry that profits from it. Such a person does not like to feel the pang of guilt that comes from being accused of a cruel lifestyle and will react just as strongly to defend their habits "oh but what about all the people dying in Africa lets save them first etc" the meatime I can feel okay about my fur coat and burger. This is just as extreme a reaction as Stellas. The intelligent person if brave enough will do their own research and discover the truth ..... the food and fashion industry has evolved to meet the needs of billions of hungry and bored human consumers all over the world on a daily basis ... the only solution is a production machine that processes living creatures in inhumane sometimes torturous way to meet the massive demand. The days of the natural farm and hunter are long gone. The new system is inhumane. It is each indiviudals duty to be honest with themself and decide whether to support it, consume more wisely, or protest it. The fact that people are talking about this in popular media today is a good thing and change will come with time. Hope all the women here will open their minds a bit .... women are supposed to lead compassionate causes.

To compare the death of children to animals is horrible! Shame on Stella! Madonna has funded an orphanage in Africa...that far outweighs any fur-sins that she has committed!

You guys have hit the nail right on the head...I just don't get all the PETA drama. I understand cruelty, but it seems that most people are somewhat hypocrites. I can respect anyone who is hardcore animal rights (or any topic) across the board, but those who flip flop or are fanatical make me want to vomit. People have rights too! I LOVE animals, but its time to chill out on this. Kudos for the points made about shoes, belts, furniture and paper. BTW, the comment about skinned children is tasteless.

people have the choice to eat meat or not... why is it that people dont agree that they are different. if we see that then we will be fine, no one has to be the exact reflection of another. otherwise it would be very boring:P and we wouldnt be having this debate:P

Sorry!I didn't express myself correctly Jaxon!I'm just an innocent French girl,LOL!!!I'm vegetarian...but don't get me wrong,i think everyone should be free to do what they want,if people wanna eat meat,well it's such a shame IMO,but that's their DAMN problem!So i'm against violent vegetarians and violent vegans!Lol.But as far as leather, fur, horse hair or sharkskin are concerned,i think they are other alternatives.

i'm sure that PETA opposes those practices as well, fur is just the topic that gets the most attention.

good point RCL I never even thought about the whole furniture aspect. I just LOVE Pottery Barn, my whole life is from there. My sister had a little Ford Ranger pick up and lived about 20 minutes from the PB outlet... those were the days. We were always in there buyin up everything real CHEAP too Live and let live I say

t0x-that the fanaticism I'm talking about "when people get mad at people who eat meat" Why does it have to be their way or the highway? lol to the skull comment
RCLdesigngirl RCLdesigngirl 10 years
Jaxon, that comment was hilarious: "what's a girl to do?" Also, I would like to add that the fur/leather debate is not limited to clothing....what about leather furniture? Or horse hair seat cushions? I work in the design industry - believe me, sometimes it's bizarre the things that are concocted to sell design goods....angora wallcovering, alligator hide ottomans, cow hide rugs, etc., etc. Shagreen (sharkskin) casegoods are more popular now than they were when they were first introduced years ago. Why is PETA not boycotting Pottery Barn or Crate and Barrel? I guess my point is this...these things are exotic, and appeal to a very high-end consumer, since they're the only ones who can spend the dough to paper an entire room in rabbit hair, or own a coat made out of some rare and exotic animal. (FYI, watercolor paper contains rabbit hair too - it's called "rag".) I just get so tired of the (glaring) double standard when it comes to the treatment of animals and the treatment of our own children.
