Paul McCartney, Joan Jett and Go-Go’s singer Belinda Carlisle are among the celebrity vegetarians featured on a new limited-edition series of U.S. postage stamps issued by the animal-rights organization PETA. The sheet of 46-cent stamps features 20 different celebrities who have given up eating meat, including well-known musicians, actors, fashion designers and athletes.
The collectible set costs $19.99, and is available for purchase now at PETACatalog.com.
