Who Are the UK’s Hottest Vegetarian Celebrities of 2015?

Posted by 1 year ago | Permalink | Comments (15)

Ellie Goulding and Professor Green aren’t just two of the UK’s hottest music acts – they’re also proud vegetarians who don’t hesitate to let others know about the benefits of meat-free eating, which is music to our ears. That’s why we’ve named them the UK’s Hottest Vegetarian Celebrities of 2015.

Goulding is quick to credit her vegetarian lifestyle with giving her an athletic physique, saying that since giving up meat, “my body’s different, my skin is different, my face shape is different and my eyes are brighter too”.

Her Instagram is full of photos of delicious plant-based foods, both home-cooked and picked up on the go, and the “Love Me Like You Do” singer also let the world know that the coat she wears on the cover of her newly dropped album, Delirium, is faux fur.

Professor Green first shared his decision to go vegetarian on Twitter, citing numerous documentaries and naming grime artist Jme as his vegan inspiration. He added, “[I]t’s not just the saturated fat that kills us, [i]t’s the damage animal agriculture causes the environment”.

Since then, the chart-topping rapper has continued to share how delicious meat-free meals can be, posting photos of dishes like stir-fried veggies with quinoa, green juices, chickpea curry, veggie burgers and more on his social media accounts.

In addition to helping save many animals every year from the horrors of the abattoir, vegans and vegetarians are less prone to developing cancer, obesity and diabetes than meat-eaters are. They also have a lower carbon footprint. These are just some of the reasons why millions of British people (including 20 per cent of 16- to 24-year-olds, according to the research group Mintel) have chosen to ditch animal-derived foods.

    Ellie is vegan but in her photo there are a lot of MAC cosmetics which are known, according to your website, as being tested on animals … it is a bit confusing…

    Obviously like most of the sane people of this planet cruelty to animals is unacceptable .. But for the 1000s of turkey farmers in Britain alone . who have been farming and rely on the basic wage they get . I take offence to the new advert on the busses I see .. Saying would you eat your dog . why eat turkey ?!!

      And do not think we as vegetarians, or vegans, don’t take almost daily offence at the out dated jokes made about us on almost any/every panel game? We have a thought out belief system, and with that must come a sense of humour. But the jokes are not new and witty, they’re grounded in stereotyping, that any other minority could reasonably complan to OFCOM, or other Advertising Standard Authoritys. But we are not taken seriously by these organisatins, and therefore must “suck it up” – day in and day out. Now that IS offensive

        I totally agree Keith, Also am fed up of the outdated quips I get from people about what I could do in barbeque season if I get fed up of my 2 House Bunnies, people still think this is a hilarious thing to say, I find THAT Offensive!

      Why would you take offence to that? It’s true, isn’t it? Would you break your dog’s neck, roast it up, stuff it with cranberries and then serve it to you family and friends for Christmas dinner? Turkey’s like all creatures are beautiful and intelligent! If farmers see truth in the message advertised on the side of a bus then maybe they’ll rethink their career path.

    Is Professor Green’s dog a vegan too?

    ellie golding was wearing leather trousers or top in a photo in a daily paper recently, unless it was pleather – doubt it…

  • Marianne Friend commented on January 5, 2016 at 6:59 pm

    I love you PETA and I thank you for everything you do for Animals and therefore for God x

    See Ellie Golding at the Burberry event in America back in April 2015 – wearing a grey leather dress, definetly, so she needs to be told to get real

    • Rob commented on January 6, 2016 at 1:07 am

      There’s this thing called faux leather these days.

      • rose peel commented on January 6, 2016 at 2:20 pm

        Yes its called pleather, Rob – I have vegan boots that look like leather…. but her dress is designer grey leather, maybe the penny will drop soon with some vegetarians, that leather is tstolen from an animal..

      When you wake in the morning, just go about your day trying to do the right thing by being kind and aware of cruelty around you and what you can do to make it better, rather than pointing out people who are merely trying to do the same day by day.

    I’ve been veggie since 13 40 now it is one of the best things you can do if you love animals.

  • Sam commented on January 6, 2016 at 7:21 am

    So proud to be vegan! Couldn’t imagine being any other way!

  • Citta commented on January 8, 2016 at 10:04 am

    Power too the vegans!
