Michelle Obama and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy Share a Headline With Tila Tequila, Officially Making It Their Worst Day Eva

June 16th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana


Russell Simmons lauded his Global Grind blogger Tila Tequila this week for drawing an impressive number of traffic to her recent post on declining to wear fur.

Tila’s post features a horrific, graphic video of live animals being skinned alive for the Chinese fur trade (via PETA), as well as her advice to those who love the look: “[J]ust fake it..its [sic] less expensive and you can wear your new outfit without guilt.”

If you’re wondering why someone like Tila should be weighing in at all, however vaguely, on the topic of animal cruelty, she’s got an answer for you (and yes, I find the first sentence of the statement incredibly sad):

“It may seem shocking (it certainly shocks the hell out of me) but I have offered myself as a spokesperson for a few causes that I care about and actually have been turned away! As if the fact that I’m a sex symbol in some way makes my involvement less vital than another celebrity.”

Russell certainly found Tila’s participation vital. So much so that in his very next e-breath, he noted that Michelle Obama and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy have also announced denounced fur, ultimately lumping them all into the same anti-fur tipping point.

One could call this the ultimate moment of validation for Ms. Tequila! Categorized by a hip-hop mogul as a bedfellow with world icons! Let the planet take notice!

Of course, Simmons did open those accolades with, “On twitter, my new favorite hangout…” which is so unbelievably old-man and out of touch that I actually stopped paying attention anyway.

So this is what it looks like at the 1st Annual Totally Fucking Shameless [In the Woods] Convention:

The Apocalypse Is Most Certainly Near

What’s worse: having everything to be ashamed of, or nothing to be proud of?

Kinda boggles the mind, doesn’t it?
