Get this: Pop singer Leona Lewis was walking down Melrose Avenue
in Los Angeles last week shopping for some fancy duds, when she
spotted a homeless man sitting tight with a leashed white bunny.
When she asked the man what he was planning on doing with the
animal, he replied, "Don't know -- probably eat it."
the vegetarian X Factor winner asked how much she could pay him to
rescue the bunny, the Sun reports, and after he asked for $20,
she generously dropped a Benjamin (that's, er, a $100 dollar bill)
into the man's hands before scurrying home with her new friend (whom
she's since named Melrose). Leona's new pet will roam her Hollywood
Hills garden, likely alongside her Rottweiler, Rome.
isn't Leona's first animal rights act. Last year she turned down a
$1.6 million offer from UK department store Harrods to open their
summer sale, because the shop sells furs.
Call us crazy, but
considering her gracious act, we're going to take the vegetarian,
animal rights activist's smash hit, "Bleeding Love," a tad more
literally from now on.
