Ricky Martin Recently Went Veg and Feels Amazing

Singer Ricky Martin stopped eating meat seven weeks ago.

Ricky Martin’s career hit an all-time high back in 1999 with his wildly popular song, “Livin’ La Vida Loca,” and 14 years later, the hip-swaying singer is still making great strides having recently switched to a meat-free diet. Martin has been vegetarian for seven weeks and is enthusiastic about the compassionate life change; taking to Twitter, he tweeted that he no longer eats fish, red meat, or chicken, and feels amazing. Recent posts on the star’s Twitter include a mango chutney dish Martin cooked himself. Other celebrities have also expressed interest in cruelty-free living with Kevin Bacon and his wife’s vegan Valentine’s lunch date and David Duchovny’s recent announcement that Candle Cafe is his favorite NYC spot.
