Singer-songwriter Missy Higgins has been crowned Australia’s Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity for 2012 after a fierce month-long battle that recently ended at PETAAsiaPacific.com.
Fellow Australian singer-songwriter Sia gave her a good run for her money during the contest. Other favourite contenders in the contest included Tom Ballard, Abbie Cornish, Isabel Lucas and surfer Dave Rastovich.
Missy is a long-time vegetarian who understands that animals aren’t ours to eat. “I’m just a real lover of animals, and I think when I was a kid that’s why I became a vegetarian”, Higgins once said in an interview. “I went to boarding school, and the meat that was served â€¦ disgusting â€¦ mass-manufactured mystery meat, and so it wasn’t very hard to get motivated not to eat that.”
Going vegetarian or vegan is the best thing that you can do for animals, your health and the environment. If you need any further encouragement to stop eating animals, just look at the slim, sexy, healthy stars on the list of nominees for this year’s competition!
You don’t have to be a celebrity to make a difference. Take the pledge and go vegetarian today, and you will be saving 100 animal lives every year. We can’t promise it’ll make you look like Missy Higgins â€“ but it will certainly make you feel a whole lot better about what you’re doing to save animals and the planet!
