Carrie Underwood is a vegetarian because she doesn’t believe in eating her pets.
Underwood, 27, decided to become a vegetarian when she was 13. The country star was raised on a farm with many animals and couldn’t fathom eating them.
“I’m a vegetarian because I love animals. I grew up on a farm and they were all my pets! So the thought of me or someone else eating my pets kind of freaked me out at a young age,” Underwood said.
Underwood told Women’s Health magazine, “I’m the most normal person in the universe, but I’m very health conscious. I love working out. I love taking care of myself. We only have one body apiece and it’s going to expire sometime, and I’m going to make sure it’s a long, long time from now.”
PETA named the star the World’s Sexiest Vegetarian twice, as Underwood is also a supporter of animal rights
“If you told me I could never sing again, I’d say that was horrible, but it’s not my life. If you told me I could never be around animals again, I would just die.”
That’s great Carrie. Now I’ll go have my burger.
