This is the type of clubbing Ke$ha wants no part of.
The "Tik Tok" singer—who just nixed her tour of Japan as the country recovers from the tsunami—is putting herself to good use in a new PETA ad campaign against the annual massacre of baby seals on the ice floes of eastern Canada.
The ad features a picture of the singer (who named her debut album Animal) with an inset of a baby seal and the saying "Canada's Club Scene Sucks."
"I was lucky enough to get to watch a bunch of wild seals recently and truly fell in love with these amazing creatures," the singer said. "Canada gets to be host to harp seals each year during their migration to the ice to give birth which is beautiful and peaceful. But because the babies' fur is so soft, there are people who club and brutally kill these young animals. The Canadian seal slaughter is barbaric and archaic."
"Clubbing baby seals is sick and gives Canada a black eye," said singer Iggy Pop, who also filmed a video interview with the animal activist group. "Don't let the greed of a few tarnish the image of the whole country."
PETA plans on displaying the new posters at spring music festivals and at Ke$ha and Iggy concerts throughout the summer. They are also asking fans to write letters of protest against the seal massacres to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
"I know they'll help me and PETA ban the Canadian seal slaughter so the only place you see baby seal fur is in a museum," Ke$ha said of her fans.
