It seems Ne-Yo is the latest celebrity to go vegan. He took to his social media to announce the news and let his fans know that he opened his eyes after watching the documentary What The Health.
On a video he shared on Facebook and Twitter, Ne-Yo said: “Alright ladies and gentlemen.
“Thanks to the What The Health documentary I have officially gone vegan, completely vegan, so I need you all to send me some vegan recipes, and stuff that I can actually eat, because I’m in a grocery store – lost.”
The singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer, and actor, whose full name is Shaffer Chimere Smith, added: “I have to give a lot of credit to What The Health… I ain’t eating none of that s*** no more.
“I ain’t messing with meat no more. I can’t – after watching that – I can’t.
“It’s mind blowing knowing how blissfully ignorant I was for so long with the stuff I was eating, not knowing that they are killing us all.”
Ne-Yo admitted to ‘doing the vegan thing’ once before. “I lasted a month or so,” he said. “But it was a little easier because I was in LA. There are like, a million vegan restaurants in LA. But I’m in Atlanta – they fry water in Atlanta!”
He said: “I say to the cheese of the world – I am going to miss you. You were a good, good friend of mine. But you’re trying to kill me. So I can’t eat you.”
“But we’re gonna make it work! Because it means something. It means saving your life.”
