The folks over at www.peta2.com have begun the voting for this year's sexiest vegan. Nominees come from music, movies, and sports. There's some surprising name son the list, too. Apparently, lots of heavy metal acts (Say it ain't so, Rob Zombie, say it ain't so!) are into the vegan lifestlye. There's a bunch of emo and neo-punks (Davey Havok of AFI, Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy) on the list, as well. Go ahead and vote for your favorites. And then buy a nice steak dinner to celebrate.
Here are some highlights from the nominees:
Women: Alison Goldfrapp, Carrie Underwood, Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders, Emmylou Harris, Naomi Watts, Natalie Portman (past winner), Pink, and Joss Stone.
Men: The aforementioned Zombie, Havok, and Wentz, Andre 3000, Anthony Keidis (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Eddie Vedder, Joaquin Phoenix, author Jonathan Safran Foer, Serj Tankian, and Paul McCartney.
The male list is a lot longer than the female list. I wonder if that's because there are more male vegans or just more "sexy" male vegans.
Morrissey is on the list, also, but he should get an honorary award for likely being vegan the longest. Hell, they should name the award after him.
