I think animals are treated very poorly. When I see people wearing fur it makes me so sick. Especially when I see young singers doing it, that sickens me. When I rocked up to my first photo shoot they had feathers and fur there and everything...I had to make it so clear that I just do not go there.
Right on! It is also nice to see that Lewis is a dedicated vegetarian and PETA backer. And I really like what she says about the pressure that young women face to diet and look thin. As Lewis put it:
There is definitely pressure to be a stick insect. Generally, in life, there is. All the magazines have tiny stick insects on their covers. But no one has ever said that to me. Everyone says I've lost weight but I don't see it. It's just eating healthily. (Source)
So amen to Leona Lewis. Even though I'm not a big fan of R&B or soft rock-type music, next time I see one of her tunes on Sirius XM, I'm leaving it there.
