Dr. Dre, Reese Witherspoon, and More Stars Who Make PETA Mad
Liking horses and the color pink is not unusual for girls like Selena Gomez. Actually painting horses pink, however, is another matter.

Last May, on the Malibu-beach set of the music video for Selena's track "Love You Like a Love Song," photos of the singer surrounded by pink painted horses earned her an earful from PETA -- and from the singer Pink as well. "There are no safe ways to paint a live horse or any animal; they can have painful allergic reactions to chemicals and there's no way to know how an individual animal will react," a PETA representative told Celebuzz. "Also, subjecting skittish animals like horses to extended periods of restraint and spraying is stressful and frightening." Pink, a known supporter of PETA, also weighed in on the matter, tweeting, "If there are any animal activists around Malibu -- at Leo Cabrillo State Beach, there are horses being painted for a stupid music video. Shame … Artists should be more aware and responsible for their actions." Gomez ultimately pulled the plug on the horse stunt and cut them out of the music video.
