How She Got Involved: In November, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Joan Jett scored yet another award honoring her eternal awesomeness: PETA's Nanci Alexander Activist Award. Throughout her career, Jett has worked hard to help end animal cruelty. She has protested against McDonald's chicken-slaughtering and has also helped PETA launch vegetarian/vegan starter kits. Not just that, the rockstar also owns Sublime, one of the best vegan restaurants in South Florida. "If there's anything I love more than rock 'n' roll, it's animals," said Jett.
