Pink Appears In New PETA Horse Drawn Carriage Campaign

SINGERSROOM.COM – Celebrities including Pink, Wendy Williams and Lea Michele are participating in a new initiative to stop horse drawn carriage business in New York City.

According to PETA, the initiative is in support of Mayor de Blasio reaffirming his commitment to end the trade, asserting that horse drawn carriages are “not humane and (are) not appropriate to the year 2014.”

Every time I see a horse-drawn carriage with its nose in the tailpipe of a cab, and the blinders on, and all the pollution and the congestion and the traffic and the noise, it just hurts my heart,” Pink shares in the clip below.

Pink’s Article for PETA

Pink wrote an article for PETA about the NYC’s horse-drawn carriages, and how they will finally stop doing it. It’s so nice, read it below:

PETA.ORGThanks to Mayor de Blasio, NYC’s Horse-Drawn Carriages Will Finally Get to Retire

Five years ago, I appeared on a PETA billboard in Times Square to give the campaign against horse-drawn carriages in New York City a boost. I was proud to help make this issue a hot topic, and I’m thrilled that we now have the enthusiastic support of the city’s new mayor, Bill de Blasio.

Watching a horse gallop across a field is one of the most calming sights imaginable. Watching a horse dodge traffic—nose to tailpipe and spooked by horns, sirens, and pounding music—is one of the most upsetting. This Buzzfeed story from last week says it all.

I grew up caring for horses and mucking stalls for my aunt, who owns a horse farm in North Carolina. I learned that horses are very social herd animals who, by nature, spend their days grazing, playing, and running together. Sadly, the 220 horses in New York City in the carriage industry endure a miserable, solitary life, forced to navigate through midtown traffic in all weather extremes pulling heavy loads of tourists.

Routine accidents have left horses dead and people in the hospital. When not working, the horses don’t live in barns but in cramped stalls in an old tenement building without even enough room to stretch out. When they are finally freed, I will be among the first to adopt one of these horses so that he or she can live as nature intended.

Luckily for everyone, Mayor de Blasio has found a win-win solution for all. His plan to phase out the inhumane horse carriages and replace them with vintage electric cars will provide solid jobs for the current carriage drivers and loving homes for the horses. Please join me in showing support for Mayor de Blasio and his commitment to giving the horses the peaceful retirement that they deserve. You can show your gratitude by tweeting a message to @BilldeBlasio and using the hashtag #TYDeBlasio.

P!nk Signs Multi-Album Deal With RCA Records

013

BILLBOARD.COM – P!nk has signed a new worldwide deal that will keep the pop superstar with RCA Records for years to come. The label, which released 2012′s “The Truth About Love,” announced the multi-album deal on Tuesday.

I am super duper excited to continue onwards and upwards with RCA and my team there,” the singer born Alecia Moore says in a statement. “We work really well together and they care in a way that artists don’t get to see very often anymore. I look forward to whatever the future holds for us and am so beyond thrilled with how much they believe in me. Woohoo rock n roll!

RCA execs share in her excitement, with CEO Peter Edge calling P!nk a “one-of-a-kind artist,” and label president Tom Corson saying she’s “in a league of her own” and has “upped the ante on what it takes to remain on top of the global stage.

That stage includes her recent record-breaking tour, in which she played 142 shows in 13 countries. The Australian leg of her tour generated $77 million in revenue.

Last year, she also earned the esteemed honor of Billboard’s Woman of the Year.

P!nk has tallied 25 Billboard Hot 100 hits dating to her 2000 debut, including 14 top 10s, four of which have hit No. 1: “Lady Marmalade” (with Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim and Mya; 2001), “So What” (2008), “Raise Your Glass” (2010) and “Just Give Me a Reason” (featuring Nate Ruess; 2013).

On the Billboard 200, she boasts six top 10s, with her last album, “The Truth About Love,” becoming her first No. 1 (2012). She’s sold 15.9 million albums in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The singer began her career with LaFace and Arista, both of which were folded into RCA.
