Dubai favorite Ne-Yo cuts the fat with vegan diet
‘The Cracks in Mr Perfect’ singer has revealed his New Year’s resolution is try to give up all meat, dairy and animal products - but he has admitted he is not looking forward to the challenge.
The 30-year-old shared his plans with his fans via his Twitter page. He wrote:
“What’s everybody’s New Year’s resolution? I’m gonna try to go vegan. Discipline test. NOT looking forward to it. Wish me luck!” The father-of-two is just the latest in a number of well-known celebrities to adopt the lifestyle change, including Leona Lewis and Avril Lavigne. But despite doing his bit for the planet, Ne-Yo has previously admitted that he isn’t perfect.
He said: “I’m a gentleman, but I’m a human being first, and a human being is not always polished and pretty. ‘The Cracks in Mr Perfect’ speaks on the perfection of imperfection. Coming into the game, I didn’t realise the perception of the artist as this perfect being.”
Ne-Yo - who has performed in Dubai and previously worked with Michael Jackson, Mary J Blige and Beyonce - credits his musical ability to his mum, who encouraged him to express himself.
