Ο will.i.am είναι ένας από τους διασημότερους καλλιτέχνες παγκοσμίως. Είναι μουσικός, παραγωγός και μέλος των Black Eyed Peas. Πλέον είναι μέλος της Vgang (ναι μπαίνει στην ίδια κατηγορία με τον Joaquin Phoenix), διότι τους τελευταίους μήνες ακολουθεί τη vegan διατροφή και δεν σταματά να μοιράζεται με το κοινό του μέσω των social media πόσο καλό του έχει κάνει αυτή η αλλαγή, αλλά και γιατί όλοι μας θα πρέπει τουλάχιστον να της δώσουμε μία ευκαιρία.

Πρόσφατα, μέσα από το λογαριασμό του στο Instagram είπε μερικές μεγάλες αλήθειες:

Veggies what a relief… Save a cows life and don’t eat BEEF… This is another public service announcement… You can believe it or you can doubt it… Let us begin now with the cow… The way it gets to your plate and how… The cow doesn't grow fast enough for man… So through mans greed he makes a faster plan… He has drugs to make the cow grow quicker… Through the cows stress the cow gets sicker… Twenty one different drugs are pumped… Into the cow in one big lump… So just before it dies, it cries… In the slaughterhouse full of germs and flies… Off with the head, they pack it, drain it, and cart it… And there it is, in your local supermarket… Red and bloody, a corpse, neatly packed… And you wonder about heart attacks??? Come on now man let's be for real… You are what you eat is the way I feel… But, the Food and Drug Administration… Will tell you meat is the perfect combination… See cows live under fear and stress… Trying to think what's gonna happen next… Fear and stress can become a part of you… In your cells and blood, this is true… So when the cow is killed, believe it… You preserve those cells, you freeze it… Thaw it out with the blood and season it… Then you sit down and begin eatin it… In your body, it's structure becomes your structure… All the fear and stress of another… Any drug is addictive by any name… Even drugs in meat, they are the same… The FDA has America strung out… On drugs in beef no doubt… So if you think that what I say is a bunch of crock… Tell yourself you're gonna try and stop… Eatin meat and you'll see you can't compete… It's the number one drug on the street… Not crack, cause that was made for just blacks… But brown beef, for all Humanity teeth… Life brings life and death brings death… Keep on eatin the dead and what's left… Absolute disease and negative… Vegan life is 'How to Eat to Live' How many cows must be pumped up fatter??? How many rats gotta fall in the batter??? How many chickens that eat shit you eat??? How much high blood pressure you get from pig feet??? @teacha_krsone inspired me years ago… Let’s build!!! #art #smart #heart

VGANG: noun- a group of people taking a hardcore gangster approach to wellness and conscience living… The Lobbyists are doing an amazing job making sure their products they sell to us are able to stay on the shelves…and those companies spend billions of dollars combined to market to us… And the drug companies are sitting back like vultures waiting for someone to get sick to provide a their product… VGANG!!! Is me lobbying for me, and taking control of my life and what I eat… VGANG!!! Is me fighting & Lobbying for the earth via being nutrition conscience on what I put in my body and what I support… VGANG!!! Is me fighting back with my mind, my selection & my dollar… What I buy and buy into effects not only me, but the environment and all living things… #vgang #art #smart #heart

Αλλά και:

A drug dealer is a drug dealer… What ever it is… it’s not natural… Opioids, Crack, Meth, Molly, Heroin what ever… Imma stay 100% natural… Even if the doctor prescribes it to me I question why? If my body can’t work out or eat right to get right then maybe I’ll take a pill… Like a antibiotic… Other than that I’m cool.. If I’m in serious pain then maybe I’ll take a pain killer… That’s just me… I’m not telling anyone to do as I do… I’m just doing me… The FDA is allowing bullshit food to enter our society and pumping drugs as the solution… I can’t trust it… So imma go on a preventive life style… Eat right + Work out+ Stay Tight = SelfMedicated… I go to the doctor for check ups and emergencies… I see my trainer and nutritionalist every week… #art #smart #heart

Από τα λεγόμενά του μπορεί κανείς να καταλάβει πως δεν το κάνει γιατί είναι μόδα, αλλά γιατί πραγματικά το πιστεύει. Και στην τελική και από μόδα να το έκανε, καλύτερη η Vgang μόδα, παρά η μόδα των burgers.
