From a very early age, we’ve all learned that vegetables are good for us. I didn’t know they were this good for us, or I might have been eating a lot more of them over the years. PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has just named Kellie Pickler PETA’s Sexiest Vegetarian. I don’t think it’s going to take too much to get a huge nod of agreement from my male readers.
In an article over at The Boot, Kellie said, “I just found out and I didn’t believe it. I googled it to make sure it wasn’t a lie.” Kellie admitted that she sometimes relies on the grapevine to hear news about herself, and said the news was a welcomed surprise. “It’s an honor,” she said. “It makes me feel really good…especially with all the people that were in the category. I wouldn’t have picked myself.” Have another look in the mirror, Kellie – maybe you would have.
Anyone who has been following Kellie’s career knows she’s always been an animal lover – and has quite a little zoo of her own. I’ve known her to have dogs, cats, a snake, a monkey, and I’m not even sure what the rest of them were. Or are, if she still has them. But I know she love animals.
I just read recently that Kellie’s monkey, Ella, has gone to a new home. Kellie said “It became really challenging because she can’t travel really well when we are on the bus.” Kelly said Ella couldn’t fly, and that when she had to go to California for two or three weeks she couldn’t take Ella with her because monkeys are illegal in California. “My sister Courtney, wanted one so bad. Well, I let her keep Ella the monkey while I was gone. And when I came back, Ella was so attached to Courtney. I mean, she wouldn’t eat. She was so depressed. And I said, ‘Courtney, would you like to be the mother of a monkey? Because she wants you to adopt her.” She’s like, ‘Oh my gosh, please!’ I was so glad because I knew she was going to be in good care,” Kellie said.
I noticed on Kellie’s web page that when you look up her tour schedule, in addition to a place to click to buy tickets, there is also a place to click to WIN tickets! Now that’s cool. Have I not been paying a lot of attention? Are other artists doing this, too – or is Kellie one of the first? At any rate, I think it’s a great idea.
If you’d like to try to win some tickets to one of Kellie’s shows, the only concert left on her schedule with a “Win Tix” spot is on June 30 at Muskeogon Summer Celebration in Muskeogon, Mich. And if you are interested in going to any of her shows, you better check that schedule and order your tickets early, because she has quite a few sold out shows, some as far ahead as October!
Before I go, here’s Kellie’s audition tape from American Idol. I enjoy looking back at these tapes. Everyone of them has come a long way since they first stepped in front of the AI judges. But Kellie is really cool.
That’s all for today. I’ve got to get to the office. It’s Friday guys, I hope you all have a great Friday, and a fantastic weekend! Write when you can!
