These celebrities are vegan, and they love it!
1. Erykah Badu
A vegan for 20 years, Badu says that eating vegan is “what’s best for her body.” Before switching to veganism, Badu was vegetarian for eight years.
2. Miley Cyrus
The singer-songwriter went vegan after caring for her blowfish, Pablow. "The reason I started this was because I had a fish that was highly intelligent," she told Jimmy Fallon. "When I would come through the door, this blowfish would go to the side and get excited. ... And one day I went to a sushi restaurant with a few of my friends and they were serving blowfish and I thought, 'You know, this is an intelligent animal.'" Here’s more proof that Miley is vegan AF.
A dedicated vegan advocate and attendee of our 2016 Hidden Heroes Gala, Mýa consistently speaks out about her passion for animal rights and the health benefits of a plant-based diet.

4. Kat Von D
Celebrated tattoo artist, entrepreneur, and TV star Kat Von D is a devoted vegan and Mercy For Animals supporter. In an interview with MFA, Kat stated, “Veganism changed me. It taught me to look past myself—to consider how my choices affect others—the animals, the people around me, and the planet we live on. To me, veganism is consciousness.”
5. Jenna Dewan Tatum
The actress who plays Lucy Lane, Lois Lane’s sister, in CBS’s Supergirl said veganism is not only great for one’s personal health and the environment; it also reduces animal suffering. While her husband, Channing, is not vegan, they’re raising their daughter vegetarian.
