Wilmer Valderrama and PETA Try to Shut Down Ringling Brothers Circus

With everything seeming to be “circus” themed, such as Britney’s album, Britney’s Circus tour, Britney’s   donations to a “clown” themed children’s hospital fund, our economy… What better time than now to shed light on real “traveling” circuses, and ‘what really goes on‘. You know, the kind of circus you probably attended as a child, like The Shriners Circus, The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey etc.

These circuses have the animals in cages, lions jumping through fiery hoops, people swinging around-we all know this original kind of circus. It was fun right? It was so cool to be a child and see lions jumping through fire and elephants standing up on 2 hind legs. Exciting right?

It’s all fun and games until That 70′s Show actor Wilmer Valderrama recently flew into Puerto Rico to promote his new PETA advertisement. Tackling this serious issue pertaining to ‘circus animal abuse’, “urging parents not to take their kids to any circus that uses animals”- just in time to catch The Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey act which is set to debut in San Juan.

Wilmer explains why he doesn’t want the show to go on: “As an actor, it’s my job to entertain people. Nobody forces me to perform, but sadly, animals in circuses aren’t so lucky,” says Valderamma, whose ad will air in both English and Spanish. “Animals aren’t willing performers, so please don’t ever take your family to a circus that uses animals.”

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), released this statement on their thoughts about circus animal abuse:
“Circus trainers force elephants, bears, tigers, and other animals to perform tricks by using whips, electric prods, and bullhooks (devices resembling fireplace pokers, with sharp steel hooks at the end). When they’re not in the spotlight, the animals are kept chained or locked away in cages, deprived of everything that’s natural and important to them.”

Do you think it’s wrong for animals to be in show biz? OR do you think the animals enjoy being in a circus? Would it even be a real circus without animals?

Britney Spears: “It’s Bad. I’m Sad”

WEEPING BRITNEY SPEARS has admitted she is lonely and dreams of meeting a new man.

Crying again!?? I’m just trying to put myself in Brit’s shoes and wonder if I would be sad if I were the MOST FAMOUS FEMALE POP STAR in the WORLD!?? Would YOU be CRYING???

The pop princess, broke down as she told her show ‘Britney: For The Record’, “It’s bad. I’m sad”.

Britney, who will be celebrating her 27th birthday in front the country on ‘Good Morning America’ tomorrow, said she was desperate to find a boyfriend but admitted she finds it hard to trust people.

“I let bad people in because I was lonely and I really paid the consequences for that big time. I am very protective of myself. Sometimes it can get kind of lonely”.

Britney, who has made an amazing comeback after shaving her head during a breakdown last year, said she dreams of living on an island with a man and sons Sean Preston and Jayden James.

“That would be heaven for me. No one could get to us”.

When her broken marriage with X Husband K-Fed was brought up she said, “I felt so alone. I didn’t want to think about it”.

And she wept as she told how her life was a prison controlled by doctors and lawyers after her meltdown. She said she never felt truly happy, adding: “You’re scared it’s going to be taken away, so it’s better just not to feel anything”.

Her thoughts love: “When I really love somebody, I give my all. I can’t get enough. I need to be around them all the time. It’s just the best feeling in the world”.

The documentary showed fellow superstar MADONNA, 50, hugging Britney and saying she felt maternal towards her.
