Selena Gomez’s pawsitive efforts to push animal rights forward are being recognized.
PETA‘s 15th annual Libby Awards have been announced, with the 28-year-old singer, actress and entrepreneur taking home one of the prizes.
Gomez’s cosmetics line Rare Beauty won favorite vegan makeup line for being animal-test-free and cruelty-free as certified by PETA, joining more than 48,000 other companies in the organization’s Global Beauty Without Bunnies database.
Lizzo won favorite vegan cooking videos for whipping up green chile enchiladas with jackfruit with a jackfruit margarita and a Thanksgiving dinner that turned out to be 100% plant-based.
“These compassionate celebrities didn’t let the pandemic stop them from walking the walk when it comes to kindness to animals,” Marta Holmberg, PETA senior director of youth programs, says in a press statement. “PETA is honoring the superstars who are leading by example and proving that helping animals can be as simple as whipping up jackfruit enchiladas or buying a vegan lipstick.”
Lily Collins not only scored her new best friend Redford from an animal shelter during quarantine, but also the honor for most pawsitive quarantine story. And during the early stages of quarantine when every A-lister began binge watching Netflix‘s Tiger King, Riverdale star Madelaine Petsch spoke up on her Instagram Story about how “these animals belong in the wild they aren’t meant to be domesticated and put in cages.” Her declaration took home the award for favorite post for animals.
