Billie Eilish Named PETA’s Person of the Year


PETA just named Billie Eilish as their 2021 Person of the Year for her efforts in encouraging fashion designers to stop using real animal fur and by going vegan.

“Billie Eilish is making sure that the party’s over for meaty, milky meals as well as for leather, fur, and silk,” PETA President Ingrid Newkirk said in an official statement. “PETA is happier than ever to celebrate her for seizing every opportunity to point out that vegan fashion and foods are kinder to the animals and the planet we share with them.”

The “Happier Than Ever” singer partnered with Oscar de la Renta on a custom vegan silk-free gown for the 2021 Met Gala on the condition of banning fur products in their future clothing lines, which the brand agreed to.

Billie also collaborated on a vegan Air Jordan shoe collection with Nike, executive produced a vegan documentary called “They’re Trying to Kill Us”, came out with a vegan fragrance, and a vegan milk chocolate bar.
