Soul singer MARY J BLIGE has warned animal rights campaigners to steer clear of dousing her in paint, because she insists it's her right to wear fur if she wants.
The NO MORE DRAMA star is a fan of coats made from animal skin and refuses to adhere to the concerns of animal activists, including People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals (PETA).
She says, "Those PETA people don't want to mess with me, they don't want to throw paint on my coat because it's not just going to be throwing paint. It's going to be Mary in the news the next day, you know what I mean?
"What gives them the right to destroy someone's coat because their opinion is that you shouldn't wear animals? Understand what I'm saying?"
