Leona Lewis has spoken out about her on-going campaign against cosmetic animal testing in the August issue of Cosmopolitan magazine.

When asked what her choice would be between a global ban on animal testing and her own career, she (perhaps shockingly) replied, "A global ban. I could still do my music in any capacity if I wanted to, but I think it's just so important for humans to show compassion. They say you can judge a society on how it treats its animals, and I think that's very true – it all filters down."

Animal-rights champion Leona has long been fighting against animal-tested products, becoming a spokesperson for The Body Shop and even creating her own cruelty-free range for the high-street chain.

"My makeup and hair people know I don't use any brushes that use real animal hair," the singer added. "We stay away from products from parts of the world where they're animal-tested or not humane at all… I couldn't even kill a spider or a fly or anything; I'm very Buddhist in that sense."

Meanwhile, Made in Chelsea's Lucy Watson has hopped on the cruelty-free bandwagon, joining countless other celebs in modelling for animal rights organisation PETA.

Tweeting a link to a campaign video, the socialite said: "Shooting with @PETAUK for an anti-fur campaign.Just been shown this and burst out crying... this is my one day to preach".
