Dancer and Insider Correspondent’s PETA Campaign Gives the Inside Scoop on Why Fur Belongs on Animals—Not in Your Wardrobe

Cuddling with her adorable rescued dog, Hobo, Insider correspondent Keltie Knight stars in a brand-new ad for peta2, PETA’s youth division, that requests, “If You Wouldn’t Wear Your Dog, Please Don’t Wear Any Fur.” The ad, which was shot by top photographer Jonathan Weiner and is available here, goes on to point out, “The only difference between our ‘best friends’ and animals killed for their fur is how we treat them.”

In an exclusive interview with peta2, Knight—who also stars in a more provocative “Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” PETA ad, which debuted Friday night on The Insider—opens up about why she decided to bare it all for PETA’s iconic campaign. “It’s something that I would never normally do, but having the platform of being on The Insider, I’m able to really draw attention to the good work that PETA’s doing,” she says. “It’s millions of eyeballs that are going to sit down for dinner that night when our show airs and be able to really think about the choices that they’re making.”

And Knight hopes that viewers will choose not to wear fur. “It’s the simplest step that everyone can take,” she says. “It is gruesome and ugly and horrible what these animals go through, and I think if anyone educated themselves, they wouldn’t wear it.”

Every year, millions of raccoons, foxes, minks, rabbits, and even dogs and cats are caged, bludgeoned, electrocuted, and skinned alive for their fur. Fortunately, many top designers and retailers—including Forever 21, Tommy Hilfiger, J.Crew, Charlotte Russe, and Wet Seal—are 100 percent fur-free.

In her interview, Knight—who performed around the world as part of the Rockettes and as a back-up dancer for Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, and others—also opens up about why she went vegan, her efforts to shop cruelty-free, and more.

She joins a growing list of celebrities—including P!nk, Lea Michele, Olivia Munn, Christian Serratos, and Megan Park—who have starred in peta2’s anti-fur campaigns.

Nick Jonas + Demi Lovato, E! Interview

On Wednesday (February 5th), after a full dress-rehearsal for her Neon Lights tour in front of a live audience in Los Angeles, CA, Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas — who is serving as Creative and Musical Director for the tour — sat down with E!, MTV, and the Insider to talk about everything from how they came together to make this her “best tour yet” to what had Demi calling Nick a “badass”.
