Taking a cue from her pal, fellow country superstar and former Sexiest Vegetarian Alive, Carrie Underwood, Kellie Pickler has stopped eating animals! Oh, and we had a little part to play in her decision, too, dontcha know.

The former American Idol contestant, red-hot country sensation, and reformed rare steak lover recently told People Magazine that she first decided to give up meat for health reasons, but then one night she was randomly Googling (which always leads to cool finds!) and came across one of Pamela Anderson’s TV ads, which lead her to our many videos. Our wonderful Pam strikes again!

“One night I couldn’t sleep and I was up just Googling random stuff and I’m like, ‘Hmmm, PETA.’ I saw all the videos and I just thought it was horrible. It’s animal cruelty. A lot of it has to do with knowing what happens to the animals and it really bothered me and so I will not eat meat.”

It’s been five months and Kellie, who says she used to eat rare steak all of the time, is not looking back. And with good friends like Carrie for support, we see a long, healthy, meat-free future for Kellie, who incidentally is getting my vote for World’s Sexiest Vegetarian of 2009!

    good for her! I knew Carrie would get ‘er sooner or later. She charmed me on American Idol and I think she’s a sweetheart I hope she sticks with it, if so she has my vote in ’09 [sexiest veg.] As for the videos, Meat Your Meat is the one that got me and my friends to try vegetarianism, out of our group I was the only one that stuck with it besides my friend Meghan who went vegan (I’m very proud).
    I also like Testing 123, Chew On This and the impotence short PSA…all are awesome.

    Yay for Kellie Pickler!
    I think the ‘Fur is Dead’ video made quite a huge impact on the members of my Girl Guide group. They all saw the video on my Bebo page and at the next Guide meeting they were all discussing it and how shocking it was, most even admitted crying while watching it.
    The next week, even more of the Guides had seen it and all pledged to be FFF: Fur Free Forever!
