She even performed at the American Music Awards in a bolero jacket almost identical to one we carry at furhatworld.com which is why she deserves the #3 spot on our list.
This hip hop artist from Seattle, Washington made second hand stores and old Fox furs extremely popular this year with his #1 hit “Thrift Shop.” He raps in the song, “What you know about rockin’ a wolf on your noggin? What you knowin’ about wearin’ a fur fox skin?” Not only does he sing about wearing fur in his songs but he incorporates a Raccoon fur coat in to every performance.
