The “everything i wanted” singer was raised vegetarian but explained her move to being vegan on Tumblr in 2018: “I went vegan like four years ago. There were a lot of reasons. 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 animals alone. Damn. Also I’m lactose intolerant and dairy is horrible for your skin and my skin is VERY aware of that.” Mama Eyelash recently launched Support + Feed, which provides plant-based meals to frontline workers helping fight COVID-19.
The “thank u, next” singer discussed being vegan despite her
The Aladdin actor told BuzzFeed, “Going plant-based is about evolving in the right direction so that we can help save our planet, our bodies, and our fellow living souls.” Mena also runs Evolving Vegan.
The actress has been vegan since 2007 and was vegetarian for 15 years before that. She told W Magazine, “I found myself going to veganism because a friend of mine had a two-week vegan food delivery program she wasn’t going to use so I used it, and immediately I just had more energy than I’ve ever had in my life. ... I said okay, I’m going to just listen to my body now. Being vegan was not anything I ever wanted to be. I just really was listening to what my body was telling me.”
The “My Love is Like...Wo!” singer explained her decision to go vegan and how it spawned from challenges that she sets for herself every year. “I didn’t know what I was getting into when I went vegan, but so many things changed. I shed 30 pounds. I felt better. I was doing better mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I was healing myself from the inside out. I didn’t have to work out as much and I cut my budget in half. I just saw all of the benefits in every area in my life, including the creative aspect, and a lot of that has to do with the pineal gland.” Shortly thereafter she went raw vegan and is now an advocate for veganism. She also has a “vegan transition guide” available on her website.
