We at PETA often refer to our love of vegan chocolate, but put this on record: We're also fond of vegetarian vanilla—that is, rapper Vanilla Ice, star of DIY's The Vanilla Ice Project.
"It opened up a whole new menu to me," he says about going vegetarian more than three years ago. "I love it." His choice very well may have saved his life. His dangerously high cholesterol level—more than 300!—plummeted to 133 just three months after he made the switch. There's no doubt that his decision saved countless animals.
(If you're wondering what could be nicer, we'd say vegan vanilla, of course!)
