Andre 3000 from Outkast

#1 Postby robert » Mon Apr 25, 2005 11:32 am

I just heard that Andre 3000 from Outkast is Vegan. There are tons and tons of famous people who are vegans, and of course millions of non-famous people who are vegans too.

When you find out about vegan celebrities please let me know, maybe I'll meet up with them sometime during my travels.

Have a great day everyone.

I heard that Brittany Murphy goes beyong vegan. She doesn't eat any thing that has ever been alive. No plants, nothing. I heard that if she even thinks about animals after a meal she makes herself throw it up. She's truely an inspiration to us all, particularly impressionable young girls, Her morals are so high that she practically never eats at all.

I like the site
http://www.famousveggie.com
It has tons and tons of famous veggies listed. My favorite is Alicia Silverstone. She really does a lot to spread the word I think :)

Famous vegans

#7 Postby CollegeB » Thu May 19, 2005 10:01 pm

If you are interested I would look up some of those people on different sites. for example the PETA website had Henry Rollins nominated forl sexy vegan of the year or something to that effect. I emailed him and he was really suprised since he eats chicken, fish, etc. Some of the people I have found to be vegan is the New singer of Sepultura (Derek Greene), Davey Havok of AFI, and I have read the drummer for Fear Factory is a vegan. Derek I am sure of since a bio said he eats lots of Boca burgers. Anyhow i hope your searches are productive.

Prince is vegan (which is great cause I am a huge prince fan).

Kim basinger is at least vegetarian, as is Alec Baldwin.

Unfortunately, Prince is also a nut. ;)

I prefer to name people who've actually effected change, such as Dr. Albert Schweitzer, Mohandas Gandhi, Pythagoras, Albert Einstein, Leo Tolstoy. I'm not sure if all, if any, were vegan but they were all vegetarians.

HHHHHHEEEEEEEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!

What do you mean Prince is a nut? I demand an explanation! :( :wink:

Albert Schweitzer, from what I know about him, was indeed an aawesome and kind man and was a peace prize laureate. he used to take the time to scoop worms off the hot pavement and place them gently on the cool grass where they needed to be to survive.

That is why I was shocked to read that he was a vegetarian only for a very brief time before he died, and was never a perfec vegetarian (i.e. he still occasionally ate animal flesh). Although, one biographer writes that Schweitzer had expressed great regret to the biographer that he hadn't been a vegetarian.

Kind of a sad story. Hard to beleive, in view of all he wrote and did for animals, and people (he was a great humantiarian and very kind man), he still occasionally consumed animals shortly before he died.

But nevertheless, he was still an inspritional man. perhaps he had his reasons for not going 100% vegetarian. It is hard to cast any judgment on a man that did so much for so many people and animals, even if he wasn't a perfect or consistent vegetarian.

Have you ever read any of his interviews?! :) The man's a talented musician but, like many artists, he marches to the beat of an very different drummer.

My understanding of Dr. Scweitzer was that he'd been vegetarian most of his adult life, but did reluctantly start eating flesh towards the end for health reasons. However, I've never actually read a biography of him (even though I have one), so I could be entirely mistaken.

And, you're right: he was a great man, nonetheless.

Here's an interesting list (I like Wikipedia even more than Google :D ): Vegetarians. There's quite a few notable there than I was unaware of.

I haven't read a full biography on him either, so my info could be wrong (i hope it is). It is just stuff that I read on the net about him. If I find the link, I will post it for you.

:D

P.S. Prince's recklusive and eccentric nature are sexy in my eyes. :wink:

LOL I'm reclusive but not rich enough to be eccentric, so I'm merely weird. :)

I got an e-mail from Prince's neighbor a few months ago. I didn't know he lived next to Prince at the time and he was writing me about veganism. Then I mentioned this guy to some of my vegan friends and they were like, "did he mention he is neighbors with Prince?"

So anyway, Prince's neighbor is a Raw Vegan :D
