Janet Jackson is among the latest batch of celebrities recently criticized by animal rights organization PETA for their association with fur.

Because of her partnership the with fur company Blackglama, the R&B/Pop star was named PETA’s “2011 Grinch of the Year” and is #1 on their “most animal un-friendly celebrities list,” which also included reality TV personality Kim Kardashian and filmmaker Cameron Crowe.

“When Janet Jackson had her infamous ‘wardrobe malfunction’ during the Super Bowl, at least the flesh that popped into view was her own,” writes PETA’s Jeff Mackey. “Unlike the stolen animal skins that she drapes herself with, which are as dead as her taste in fashion (not to mention her career). Ms. Jackson, you’re just plain nasty.”
