no secret that Good Charlotte’s Benji Madden has a soft spot for
animals—you’d have to be living under a rock not to know that.
Benji and his bandmates never pass up the chance to help animals by doing
things like taking part in KFC
demos all along their recent tour route, donating an exclusive track
for PETA2’s Liberation CD, and inviting PETA along on the
Honda Civic Tour to show videos and pass out stickers to all their loyal
fans—in fact, you probably saw us there!
And caring about animals runs in Benji’s family. He and his brothers,
Joel—who we all know and love—and Josh—who we don’t
all know but we love anyway, donated some rad gear from their cruelty-free
MADE clothing line for our “Welcome to the Family” contest.
From hoodies and T’s to pants, hats, underwear, flip-flops, and
sneakers, they’ve got every angle covered. And we’ve got it
on good authority that MADE clothing will always be a cruelty-free company,
which means no animal fabrics, including leather. Thanks, Benji, for the
headsup on that! So while they may be living the lifestyle of the rich
and famous now themselves (we’re sure they’re not complaining,
though), they’re careful not to make money off the suffering of
at PETAKids.com, we just can’t get enough of these pop punk darlings—we’re
all rushing out to buy their new CD, The Chronicles of Life and Death!—and
we know you feel the same way, so check out this exclusive interview with
none other than Benji Madden himself. This talented vegetarian heartthrob
has a lot to say about how animals should and shouldn’t be treated.
