Rapper will.i.am (William James Adams) is best know as the founder and lead member of the band Black-Eyed Peas, although he is also a songwriter, actor and record producer who has worked with many famous musicians. He ditched meat, dairy and eggs back in 2017 after his doctor told him that he had high blood pressure and cholesterol. Heart disease and diabetes ran in his family, so his doctor encouraged him to take control of his diet as soon as possible.
Will.i.am admitted that he’d never given much thought to what he was eating before that. But he recognized that he needed to change his diet and start working out more. He became vegan, biked to work and lost 15lbs pretty quickly. He also noticed that he was experiencing other health improvements.
Sia has always loved animals, and as a young artist struggling to survive, she vowed that if she ever found success, she would make it her mission to spend the rest of her life trying to help and protect animals. She loved her dogs and became vegetarian when she realized that chickens and cows could feel, care and empathize just like her dogs could.
Sia, full name Sia Kate Isobelle Furler, is an Australian singer and songwriter, who started her career in the acid jazz band Crisp in the mid 1990s in Adelaide. She released her first solo studio album in 1997, and then moved to London, and subsequently New York. By 2014, she broke through as a solo recording artist, when her sixth studio album, 1000 Forms of Fear, debuted at No 1 in the US Billboard 200, and has continued to produce albums and to write many songs for film.
Singer-songwriter, Billie Eilish, was raised vegetarian in Los Angeles, CA. She “accidentally” became famous at the age of 13, when she wrote a song for her dance teacher and uploaded her recording onto the popular music-streaming site, SoundCloud. By the next morning it had gone viral, and shortly after her career began to take off. She’s already accomplished more by the age of 18 than most other artists do in a lifetime.
In 2014, she made the decision to go vegan. About that decision, she wrote to a fan
“I love animals and I just think there’s no point in creating something out of an animal when the animal is already there. Leave the animals alone….also I’m lactose intolerant and dairy is horrible for your skin, and my skin is VERY aware of that.”
She is now a vocal advocate of the vegan movement and is inspiring many to give cruelty-free living a try through her Instagram following.
