Hip-hop artist—and defender of animals—J Fields recently sat down with the PETA audio/visual crew to answer some questions about why he wanted to get involved with PETA, why he went vegan (hint: It involved a KFC protest), his take on using animal skins and fur for clothing and accessories, and the importance of adopting companion animals (like his own pampered cat) instead of buying from pet stores and breeders. Check it out:
Hello! My name is Nina, and I am a musician-in-training, and I play 7 instruments. I am a liberal, an LGBT activist, avid reader, composer, singer, and poi spinner. I am vegan, and a strong supporter of animal rights.
I have always lived in Los Angeles but my family and I went to Mexico for my parents wedding. So we came back to LA. I don't like LA but were here already what can I do unless I move out and find my own housing. I have always liked animals and it was til I was like about 14 when I learned about tests they do on animals and I began to explore animal cruelty because I was interested it in it. I have watched videos that just broke my heart so that's why today I'm doing all I can to not buy anything that has harmed an animal and I'm vegetarian .
