You know you've reached the pinnacle of fame when someone sponsors a chicken in your name.  At least, that's how it works for PETA.

The animal rights organization is congratulating Ricky Martin for his recent switch to a meatless diet by sponsoring a rescued chicken named Olivia in Ricky's name.  In a statement, PETA points out the health benefits of a vegetarian diet, and notes that people who go meat-free "help save animals like Olivia, too."  You can see a photo of Olivia on PETA's website

PETA, or People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, made the announcement in commemoration of The Great American Meatout, which takes place every March 20th to encourage people to try a vegetarian diet for a day.

So far, there's no public comment from Ricky, or Olivia, on the PETA honor.
