Chart-topper KE$HA has hit back at reports she was snapped wearing a fur coat in New York, insisting she's an animal lover and always wears fake animal skin.
Paparazzi pictures of the singer arriving at her Manhattan hotel on Thursday (14Jan10) prompted criticism online from gossips who speculated her outfit was made from real animal pelts.
The criticism prompted Ke$ha to take to her Twitter.com page, proclaiming herself an animal lover - and pointing out her chart-topping new album is called Animal.
Ke$ha writes, "Its ALWAYS fake fur. I don't do the real shiz (s**t). My rekords (sic) called ANIMAL! I dont do fur!"
