Sia Goes Vegan, Shines Bright Like a Diamond

Published by Michelle Kretzer.

We’ve known that Sia Furler is kindhearted ever since she helped take a bite out of animal homelessness:

Sia: Take a Bite out of Animal Overpopulation - PETA

So it wasn’t all that much of a surprise (but still pleasant!) to hear that she’s going vegan:

We’re sending Sia some vegan goodies to make going completely animal-free as fun and sweet as she is.

In other celebrity news:

  • Are vegan baked goods the next big thing? The sharks on ABC’s Shark Tank seem to think so. On last Friday’s episode, the vegan cinnamon roll gurus behind Cinnaholic, Florian and Shannon Radke, had shark Robert Herjavec so convinced that he made a $200,000 investment in the company. (You’ll also be happy to know that the sharks swimming in the tanks on the show’s set are computer generated.)
  • Another vegan-pastry entrepreneur got a sweet surprise when she attended a taping of The Queen Latifah Show. Queen Latifah handed her $1,000 to help her move her budding business from her kitchen to a commercial spot. Is the Queen thinking about going cruelty-free? She’s certainly enjoying animal-friendly food:

  • And if you needed even further proof that pigs are among the most beautiful animals on the planet, Ricky Gervais has it covered:

  • Cue the “awww”s: In an interview with HGTV, actor Elaine Hendrix said that she chose her home because the sunroom was perfect for her two rescued cats and the large backyard and pool were ideal for her three rescued dogs. She even demonstrated how to give your dog a relaxing massage. To thank Elaine for being a shining example of the kind of guardian every animal deserves, PETA sent her some toys and treats to make playtime with her companions even more enjoyable.
  • We’ll leave you with another reason to adore Kellan Lutz. During an interview for his upcoming movie Tarzan, Kellan talked about protecting primates, fighting fur, and how animals are his friends, adding, “I’m an advocate for any animal that is treated inhumanely.”

“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
