  • Heather says:

    Anthony is the lead singer of the Red Hot Chili’s and in my opinion is the sexiest guy in the WORLD P so I voted for him as sexiest vegetarian last year in the poll. He’s awesome has been a veggie for years which I think makes him a lot more sexier D 33

  • Tanya says:

    Oh my Gosh. Anothy Keidis is the most beautiful man i have ever laid eyes on. i’ve loved the Chili Peppers for the last 17 years of my life….He truely is a GOD…and i dont just mean for his body…he is beautiful inside too. Love him.

  • sandra says:

    I love him ! Of course he is against animal cruelties … One of his donations was giving U$ 100.000 to Sea Shepherd Whal Wars and many others …

  • ANNA says:

    YES this is awesome. I love him. Makes him even hotter than he already is. Not to mention seeing Brandon Boyd at my favorite vegan spot. These fellas know what’s up!

  • Concerned says:

    Mel it’s obvious that you have your terms mixed up since you are using “vegan” and “vegetarian” interchangeably as shown in your sentence “Also a fact most people I know of who claim to be vegans are actually one of the two I mentioned. I rarely actually read of an actual vegetarian.” i don’t believe that anybody claiming to be a vegan would eat any sort of animalbased or animalexploiting product as Tammy was trying to politely point out to you. And just because you’ve “seen honey be removed from a beehive” it does not make you an expert on veganism. If you are truly interested there are many informative and wonderful websites you can check out the PETA site being one of them.

  • Kathy says:

    I didn’t read all the comments but has anyone just flat out asked him? I think he’s AR VEG Green

  • Tara says:

    Its the lead singer from red hot chili peppers. Hes awesome! And good for him if hes anti mcdonalds. We dont need to be eating that crap anyway.

  • Jeanell says:

    AWESOME Anthony! He was always been for animal rights!

  • Whome says:

    I don’t know what potential backlash Anthony would suffer if he was just plain out saying he doesn’t care for McDonald’s…I’m sure he’s comfortable in his position in music since RHCP has so many fans…and it’s only McDonald’s…seriously…not a big deal and I’m sure he doesn’t care what anyone thinks. Vitesh’s comment made me laugh. Dunno if it was a joke or not but it was funny to me.

  • Tammy says:

    Sorry Mel but you obviously DONT know the definitions at all. Vegans do not eat animal products for several reasons… not purely so animals are not killed. It’s also because of animal exploitation hence vegans not eating honey. I know… I’ve done my research. I am a vegan.

  • CINDY says:


  • mel says:

    Um… Tammy I’m not stupid and do know the definitions. Honey is actually pollen that bees collect and process for food. It’s vegan or at least more vegan than milk or eggs are and no bees are killed when you take honey from the honeycombs. I have seen honey be removed from a beehive so I do know what I’m talking about. Also a fact most people I know of who claim to be vegans are actually one of the two I mentioned. I rarely actually read of an actual vegetarian. Plus unless you’re really strict you cannot be a true vegetarian. You eat fries at McDonald’s? you eat meat because they use a beef based oil. Same with a lot of eating places either you eat out real expensive or you’re exposed to a nonvegan product. Several sauces even at fancy places require the use of eggs or other animal byproducts.

  • daniel says:

    He is the lead guy of red hot chilli peppers he has a book out called scar tissue great guy!

  • Tammy says:

    Ummm… Mel… actually you’re not vegan if you eat ANY kind of animal product not even honey. I think a bit more research on your part would be a good thing…

  • kris shulfer says:

    he so HOT!! anyone who will be against something so many people in the world live on…fast food!! anyway hottness is always interesting!! love it in WI

  • Ray says:

    I don’t know we’d have to ask him. Rock stars and other celebreties are known to pander to the antiBig Bad Evil Corporation Withoutny Ethics crowd. It was most likely a spontaneous gesture to that effect. If Mr. Kiedis had any serious systematic efforts going against them we would’ve probably heard of it by now.

  • Sara says:

    I love Anthony Kiedis. I grew up listening to RHCP. He’s been a vegetarian for awhile his girlfreind turned him onto it and he’s kept it.Yay!

  • migolito says:

    Or he could be making an approving hiphop gesture signalling his fondness for them Vitesh Now thats just silly buddy!!! Red Hot Chilli Peppers is one of the greatest punkfunk bands to march this face of this earth. Anyone who says they have not heard of them just dont know the names of the songs they sing. Trust me everyone has heard his music unless you live with meerkats in africa!!! LOL!!!! Anyways McDonalds sucks….

  • Press Compton says:

    For those of you who don’t know Anthony Kiedis is the lead singer for the rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers a socal band that has been popular all over the world for over 25 years. Do the songs “under the bridge” or “scar tissue” ring a bell? If not please listen to a few songs on itunes. This man is a legend.

  • Lisa Atkinson says:

    This guy is a legend in the UK When they come to play tickets are sold out and knowing he cares for animals welfare makes him an even cooler guy. Keep up the good work.

  • mel says:

    I do find it funny that PETA thinks that you only go vegan if you support animal rights. Sorry but not always the case other things can come into play such as a restricted diet to it. Even then they may become pescarians or ovolactate vegans. That said I appreciate Kiedis’ right to free speech. It’s hard to stand up for your beliefs if you are a celebrity because of potential backlash to your career.

  • Sita says:

    Of course he is. He hates them. Even before he became vegetarian and then vegan. And he was last years sexiest vegetarian D

  • Dave says:

    lol awesome picture. Never heard of this guy before… just from this action I’ll check out his work.

  • Brien Comerford says:

    The rugged vocalist has always been an enigma in reference to animal rights. I know that Anthony Kiedis is a vegetarian but I’m not certain if he is for moral andor animal welfare reasons.
