7 Celebrities Who Have Gone Vegan

Ten years ago, a vegan diet may have been considered bizarre. But these days, there are more and more people embracing the no-animal-product diet, most notably celebrities. Stars of all sorts, from rock stars to movie stars to big-name politicians, are going vegan, and the newest members of the club -- albeit temporarily -- are Jay-Z and Beyonce. "On December 3, one day before my 44th birthday, I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan, or as I prefer to call it, plant-based!" Jay-Z wrote on his Life + Times website. "This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a 'plant-based breakfast' every day. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought." His "good friend" is Marc Borges, who developed the 22 Days nutrition program, which aims for "optimum wellness through conscious nutrition." So what else did Jay-Z have to say about their vegan challenge, and what other stars refrain from animal products? Check out these 7 vegan stars right here:
