(CELEBRITY ACTIVISTS) With talent like Modest Mouse, Band of Horses, and Grizzly Bear, this year’s lineup for the Coachella music festival in Southern California is bound to be animal friendly. Not only are Coachella’s past and present artists either animal activists or vegan/vegetarian, but the festival itself offers an abundance of vegan and vegetarian options. Here are some of Coachella’s finest animal activists. — Global Animal
Remember in 2009 when The Smiths’ very own Morrissey marched off-stage? During the song, “Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others,” Morrissey decided he’d had enough and walked off stage. Fortunately the star returned to finish his set, explaining, “The smell of burning animals is making me sick. I just couldn’t bear it.” He has also recently joined a No Cruel Cosmetics campaign in the UK to put an end to animal testing.
