    Animal rights group PETA has elected singer Janet Jackson as its 2011 "Grinch of the Year." Jackson earned this dubious accolade due to the fact that she wears lots of fur and reps a fur brand.

    Jackson is a spokeswoman for luxury fur brand (furrier?) Blackglama, which really incites PETA's ire.

    PETA spokeswoman Wendy Wegner said, "While the holidays may be known as the season of giving and peace on earth, that’s not always the case for our animal friends. When Janet Jackson had her infamous wardrobe malfunction during Super Bowl XXXVIII, at least what popped into view of 170 million onlookers belonged to her, unlike the animal skins she drapes herself in, which are as dead as her fashion taste and her career.”

    PETA's really pissed at Miss Jackson, calling her look and her job over.

    Do you wear fur? Are you in agreement with PETA about Janet Jackson?
