Beyoncé Announces Vegan Lifestyle; Fans Unhappy
Breaking news: Beyoncé announced on Good Morning America yesterday that she is going full vegan, crediting her new diet with her recent weight loss. Though many vegans will rejoice at such a public endorsement of veganism by a megawatt celebrity like Bey, the recording star’s fanbase, known collectively as “the Beyhive,” erupted in anger on the internet in response to her big announcement. Teasers before the TV spot apparently led the Beyhive to hope for an announcement of greater importance to them, such as a tour or another pregnancy.
However, for those not looking to demonize Beyoncé for her announcement, there is inspiration to be drawn from the star’s story. On her new plant-based diet, Beyoncé is feeling “better about herself than ever before.” After trying a variety of unsuccessful diets throughout her life, she claims that veganism is a lifestyle that helps her lose weight and keep the weight off. She also claimed that the plant-based diet made her skin feel healthier as well, and she encourages others to switch to veganism.
