People can’t stop talking about Beyoncé’s fit-but-still-curvy physique, and many speculate that her 22-day vegan cleanse had something to do with it. Bey must have been happy with the results because it looks like she’s going for round two. The singer just posted a new picture of vegan food on Instagram with the hashtag #22daysvegan. If this keeps up, Queen Bey may soon have another jewel for her crown: PETA’s Sexiest Vegan Celebrity award.
In other celebrity news:
- Beyoncé isn’t the only one feeling the power of the plant. Naomi Campbell announced that she has gone vegetarian for her health, and Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Channing Tatum are raising their little one, Everly, vegetarian, too. Dr. Oz told his viewers to “give your body a break” with a seven-day vegan cleanse and posted a meal plan for it on his site. And one good Beatle deserves another: Just like Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr credits his meat-free diet with giving him his great health.
- After seeing the gruesome scenes from the annual dolphin slaughter in Taiji, Japan, millions of people around the world are calling for it to end. Katie Couric invited the former dolphin trainer featured in The Cove, Ric O’Barry, and other marine-mammal experts on her show to talk about the slaughter, how it is fueled by marine-mammal parks, and what people can do to help end it.
- Russell Simmons came up with his own novel way to help stop the dolphin slaughter. Appearing on Jane Velez-Mitchell, Russell placed the onus on the U.S. government to use its relationship with Japan to see the massacre ended. “I know that there’s a negotiation of some sort, a bill, a partnership that’s being formed,” he said, “and America could ask for [President Obama] to include in the bill some kind of a shift in their policy regarding those dolphins.”
- It wasn’t enough for Heart just to cancel their show at SeaWorld. Sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson are also joining the lineup to play an orca benefit concert on Earth Day in Seattle.
And the Taiji dolphin slaughter and abuse of marine mammals in captivity continue to dominate Twitter:
