Morrisey Named Person Of The Year By PETA UK

In case you missed this one, Morrisey has been named person of the year by PETA UK for helping to make the world a kinder place for animals. The former Smiths vocalist has been a vegetarian since he was eleven and  is a long-time champion for animal rights.

From PETA UK: Never one to hold back, Morrissey has fearlessly mouthed off about the meat trade and helped promote kindness to animals worldwide in bold ways, including being immortalised in PETA US’ “Vegetarian Icon” postage stamp series – with more than 20,000 stamps selling out in less than two weeks! For all his efforts for animals, we’re chuffed to bits to be naming Morrissey PETA’s 2011 Person of the Year.
