Animal rights group upset by use of elephants

Britney Spears has been slammed by PETA for featuring elephants in her new music video.

The animal rights group are outraged that the animals were used in scenes for the singer’s single Circus.

‘As Britney is such a victim of the paparazzi and is always complaining about how she hates to be held up in her guarded house and can’t feel free, she of all people should be able to relate to the horror that captive animals go through when they’re used for entertainment, PETA‘s Christine Doré says on the group’s website.

‘Except Britney chooses to perform, and the lifestyle just comes with it. Animals are ripped away from their mothers at a young age, kept in chains and prodded to make them perform.’

Britney’s new album Circus is out now.
