Lea Michele is not a newbie to the world of animal rights, has dedicated herself to it following her appearance on an episode of Oprah in which she ate a slice of a donated tiger’s brain. The experience has left Michele with a strong commitment to the vegetarian/vegan lifestyle. She has also given several speeches and served as a spokesmodel for several gay rights, vegan and vegetarian groups, all of which she feels strongly about. As such, Lea Michele has released a number of animal rights inspired charity singles, such as “Beefy for Bebe,” “arest of Angels,” “Livin’ on a Prayer,” and “The Only Way is Essex.”
While it’s not possible to say whether or not any of these songs will hit the top twenty on the UK charts, chances are high that at least a few of them will. In the past, Lea Michele had appeared on a few of the American reality shows “The Apprentice” and “The View,” so she has some connection with a younger audience than some of the other country music stars have. In fact, the very first song on her first major album was called “Beefy.” Lea Michele made her debut on “The Apprentice” as the “Ruthless Roper” and quickly became one of the show’s most popular characters.
Beyond singing, Michele has also made several movies in her native new jersey. She appeared in the remake of Beauty Shop with Chris Evans, as well as in the movies Chicago, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Awaken, Sleepaway, The Perfect Score, and The Secret Life of Pets. As with many other celebrities, Lea Michele has not held back when it comes to sharing her personal beliefs about animals. If anything, her beliefs are more moderate than those of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. However, she does seem to be a strong advocate for spaying and neutering cats, which is probably a position that she holds strongly for the sake of her pet cats as well as herself.
