Ne-Yo is making it a happy New Year for animals: The rapper has resolved to go vegan in 2013. When Ne-Yo first tweeted his New Year's resolution, he deemed it a discipline
test. But after he
learned about the cruelty of the meat and dairy industries, he said that there
was "much more meaning to it." PETA sent him vegan
dining expert chef Tal Ronnen's The Conscious Cook: Delicious
Vegan Recipes That Will Change the Way You Eat, a vegetarian/vegan starter
kit, and fellow music legend Paul
McCartney's meat industry exposé, "Glass Walls."
Ne-Yo has been keeping his Twitter
followers up to date on his progress and has received an outpouring of support,
as have animals:
Maybe Ne-Yo will give Anderson Cooper the inspiration that he needs to help him make the switch. When Anderson invited vegan Alan Cumming onto his show, the pair noshed on meat-free chicken wings and Anderson talked
about his vegan aspirations.
friend Kelly Osbourne
says it was her boyfriend, vegan
chef Matthew Mosshart, who helped her drop pounds and feel
better. "That's because he cooks for me! He's a vegan chef so he makes
sure I eat healthily," she says. "I'm happy with how I look now."
Stone and Andrew Garfield
are happy with how their family looks now, with the addition of their new
rescued dog, Ren. They took the pup in as foster parents, but it took the
couple only a few days to make it official. PETA sent Ren a homecoming present
of treats and toys.

Fighters, schmighters―after Jake Shields' recent tweet, the people he'll really need to shield himself from are all the clamoring vegan girls. And they're probably in pretty good shape, too, if they've been fueling up on the healthy fare that Ellen DeGeneres shares on her website's "Go Vegan With Ellen" page. Hope they leave room for Anne Hathaway's luscious vegan treats.
Alicia Silverstone is raising a little vegan Bear, of course. Maybe she has some words of wisdom for cruelty-free mom-to-be Emily Deschanel?
And PETA has words of wisdom for Diane Kruger, about her photo shoot in which she was draped in coyote. Hasn't she heard it's better to go naked than wear fur? Furry Alexander McQueen may have passed on, like so many of the animals he killed for clothes, but at least he did make a kind decision in his will. Where was his compassion when he was alive?
Well, it's very obvious where Bree Olson's compassion is―you can't miss it. And Olivia Wilde and Emma Stone are going to have cruelty-free written all over their faces.
Emma Stone, star of the upcoming Spider-Man film, was recently snapped by photographers cuddling and walking a fetching little black-and-tan dog outside a Los Angeles doggie daycare, grooming service, and nonprofit dog rescue center. Some reports say that Stone was dropping her pooch off for grooming, while others maintain that she had just adopted the dog from the center.
Either way, it's awesome that Stone supports rescuing companion animals. Wonder if she and Penn Badgley talked about the joys of saving homeless animals on the set of Easy A …

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
