Musical vegetarians to appear on US postage stamps

Russell Simmons' PETA Stamp

Various stars of the music industry are to appear on a range of US postage stamps featuring “vegetarian icons” selected by animal rights group PETA and due to go on sale later this month.

In a statement, PETA said that the line of stamps “honours some of the world’s most dynamic people from throughout history who went vegetarian out of concern for animals, their health, or the environment”. Which is a kick in the teeth for all those people who went vegetarian just because they find animals creepy.

Music people included are Paul McCartney, Morrissey, Def Jam co-founder Russell Simmons, Chrissie Hynde, Leona Lewis, Joan Jett and Bryan Adams. Oh, and Ellen DeGeneres, who is sort of a music person. Sometimes. A bit.

See all the stamps here.
