R&B Singer Mya Confirms She Is A "Hardcore Vegan"
We love when celebrities are vegan and open about it! That’s why it was very exciting to read more about Mya and her almost two-year strong “hardcore vegan” diet!
In a recent interview with SOHH, the R&B sensation elaborated more on her plant-based lifestyle, and spoke about how she is still in a learning process. She stated:
“This is brand new for me. It’s almost year two. I’m a freshie and I’m learning a lot as I go and I surround myself around other people that teach me all types of things and what I can possibly use or where to go. There’s vegan wine festivals and vegan food festivals.”
Mya initially went vegetarian for a six-month challenge in 2010, and then did the same with veganism in 2014. The latter clearly agreed with her, and she credits it for her newfound energy levels, endurance, as well as appearance, stating:
“It’s definitely helping me because I don’t have to work out as hard. I still have to maintain a healthy physique so I still have work to do but it’s just not as difficult and I look better and feel better than I did a couple of years ago when I was not vegan.”
Another great thing to note about this interview was that the singer stated her veganism extends beyond just her diet to what she wears and what she buys:
“It is a lifestyle for me and outside of just food, I’m practicing fashion and making sure I’m not wearing leather shoes and I have not worn furs since a long time ago. I have to be very conscious when I’m making decisions and saying I’m vegan because I have to be about it all the way and now that has given me some thought into creating certain things like home décor.”
She concluded by stating she is “ever-changing and ever-growing”, and it is safe to say Mya is a fantastic representative of the vegan lifestyle in all of its aspects!
