Should Prince William be a sport and drop the blood sports, Pink might reward him with a special performance.
The singer has written to the pinup prince, asking him to stop killing animals for fun. Pink's note, sent Friday, takes the heir to the throne of England to task for his trip to Africa, where he was reportedly taught by Masai warriors to track animals and throw hunting spears. The prince was subsequently condemned by animal-rights activists when he reportedly speared and killed a miniature antelope called a dik-dik earlier this month. The St. James Palace press office, however, told MTV News that this incident did not take place, and that the Prince's vacation did not include a safari or any hunting lessons.
"I was happy to hear that I was your first choice to play at your 21st birthday bash," Pink wrote, "then disgusted to learn that you hunt and kill animals for fun and that you purposely rammed a spear through a tiny deer in Africa. Why? Was it some kind of 'trying to prove you're a man' trip?"
Pink, however, made an allowance that the prince could change his ways, just as she once did before she gave up her furs and became a supporter of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Earlier this month, Pink took up the PETA cause to try to convert Vogue magazine editor Anna Wintour, asking the famously fur-wearing editor to stop promoting fur in her trendsetting magazine (see "Pink Asks Vogue To Shed Fur From Its Pages").
"But hey, we all make mistakes in our lives, and we can all change," Pink continued. "Hopefully you'll have a change of heart and find more interesting things to do with your spare time than kill animals. Call me or PETA if you'd like any suggestions! Then maybe I'll come play at your next birthday!"
Prince William's 21st birthday party — which had an "Out of Africa" theme — was held in June at Windsor Castle. Pink had been rumored to be on the top of the prince's wish list, but her rep at Arista Records said at the time that she had no knowledge of his interest.
