Leona Lewis turns down 7-figure Harrods job

Vegetarian singer won't open sale because the store sells fur

Leona Lewis is said to have rejected a £1 million offer to open the summer sale at Harrods.

The X Factor winner, 23, was approached by owner Mohammed Al Fayed about appearing at the event in June.
But the strict vegetarian refused the offer because the department store sells fur.

'I'm totally against animal cruelty,' she tells the Daily Mail. 'I don't have clothes, shoes or bags made from any animal products.'

Harrods is the only department store in the UK that continues to sell fur and is regularly targeted by animal cruelty campaigners.
