Just last week singer-songwriter, Ne-Yo publicly announced his decision to adopt a vegan diet after seeing the Netflix documentary "What The Health". \u00a0In his video announcement, Ne-Yo filmed his reaction to the movie as he scoured supermarket shelves for vegan food with his friend, saying\u00a0\u201cSend in recipes, send in restaurant recommendations. especially in Atlanta, because I ain\u2019t messing with that meat no more.\u201d More recently, the self-confessed veggie-phobe opened up about life and "where he's at" in an interview with the\u00a0Herald Sun. "I\u2019ve been on this whole \u2018Self love\u2019 and \u2018There\u2019s nothing wrong with you being you\u2019 kick for so long that I can\u2019t preach it if I don\u2019t practice it." says Ne-Yo "I\u2019m telling everybody \u2018Love yourself\u2019 meanwhile I\u2019m hiding under my hat. It didn\u2019t make any sense. So I decided this year I\u2019m going to take the hat off and let the world see what it is." The Herald ask Ne-Yo about how his new journey into veganism comes into play, to which he said: "I wasn\u2019t trying to make a major statement or anything. A friend was urging me to watch What the Health? on Netflix; I was running from it for a long time." "I think I might have been a T-Rex in another life, I was a lover of meat. But the second I watched it I instantly ran to refrigerator and threw out all the deli meats. This was not something that was planned, it just happened." Ne-You believes that there is no such thing as coincidence, "I was supposed to watch the film and here I am. I can\u2019t know what I know and still eat that stuff. I just can\u2019t." After a failed attempted a plant-based diet in 2013, he explains that the transition to veganism doesn't come easy for him and that the reason it's different this time is mainly down to a change in perspective. He says: "It\u2019s not an easy diet at all. But now just thinking about the alternative is the focus. Meat literally makes you sick. It\u2019s harder for me because I\u2019m not really a fruit and vegetables kinds guy, I never have been, even from childhood, but I gotta do what I gotta do."
