Trash pop singer Ke$ha has been named the most animal-friendly star of 2011 by officials at animal awareness group PETA.
She fought off competition from Justin Bieber for the honour at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals' recent Libby Awards, which honour stars who help raise awareness of animal cruelty.
Ke$ha has been known to be very vocal about her animal opinions, advocating fake fur at all times!
Marta Holmberg from PETA2 (the organisation's youth division) says, "Ke$ha is quick to act when sleazy behaviour - like cruelly killing chickens or slaughtering seals - hurts animals. peta2 is proud to have this animal on our team."
Jackass funny man Steve-O was named the top animal-friendly celebrity, and Holmberg added, "When it comes to tackling animal abuse, Steve-O isn't clowning around. He may be quick to risk his safety for a stunt, but he's quicker to point out that animals should be protected, not killed for food or exploited in a shoddy zoo or a circus."
