Aretha Franklin has topped a new list of fur felons.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has named the Queen of Soul the Worst Dressed Celebrity because she refuses to stop wearing fur.

The soul star joins Eva Longoria, Lindsay LohanKate Moss and Kylie Minogue among those dishonored on the new list.

Vegetarians, vegans and animal lovers voted for their fashion victims in an online vote via the FurIsDead.com Web site.

In naming and shaming Franklin, PETA bosses have said, "How 'bout some R-E-S-P-E-C-T for animals? Aretha, when you waddled into the Grammys in yet another vulgar fur, you looked as if you were going to perform 'I Am the Walrus' by the Beatles.

"You might be a queen, but you don't know jack about compassion."

Rocker Marilyn Manson was also among those dishonored for his love of leather and Minogue landed on the list after she was spotted clutching a python purse.
