Hold the phone: will.i.am is the latest celeb who has decided to eat with compassion! The Black Eyed Peas singer and current judge on The Voice UK has committed to kicking off the new year with a new vegan attitude. He’s excited about dropping animal-derived foods and trying tasty vegan meals.

In a hilarious Instagram story, will.i.am explained that he dropped cruelly produced food because he’s “tired of being pimped by food companies.”

“[E]ating bad, poisonous food, and feeling bad in the morning … I don’t want to be diabetic and in and out of the hospital because I’m eating the pimp’s food.” —will.i.am

will.i.am has joined the likes of Orange Is the New Black stars Laverne Cox and Danielle Brooks, singer Ne-Yo, and many others who have recognized the meat and dairy industries’ lies and recently decided to switch to eating vegan for animals, the environment, and their own health.

And he’s doing it like a pro! We couldn’t be happier about his decision to leave animals off his plate, and we hope that he sticks to his new, compassionate diet. ?❤️
