Los Angeles – Anyone interested in being the gorgeous Natalia Clavier’s valentine will have to do one thing first: Go vegan! The singer and Argentina native, who stars in a new ad for PETA Latino that’s available here, explains, “I love being vegan because I know I’m saving animals, improving my health, and helping the environment.”

Today’s industrialized meat and dairy industries mean immense suffering for animals: Chickens and turkeys have their throats cut while they’re still conscious, fish are suffocated or cut open while they’re still alive on the decks of fishing boats, and calves are taken away from their mothers within hours of birth. Vegans save animals’ lives, have a smaller carbon footprint than meat-eaters, and are less prone to developing heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and obesity than meat-eaters are.

Clavier joins a long list of celebrities—including Rubén Albarrán, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Joaquin Phoenix, Joan Jett, Geezer Butler, Marco Antonio Regil, and Constance Marie—who have teamed up with PETA and PETA Latino to promote healthy and humane meat-free meals.

Broadcast-quality footage of Clavier’s exclusive video interview can be downloaded here. For more information, please visit

“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
