Seems the ‘Meatless Mondays’ campaign is picking up another high-profile celebrity.

According to British pop star Leona Lewis, American Idol judge Simon Cowell has agreed to give up meat once a week. “Anything I ask Simon to get involved in regarding my charity and environmental concerns he always does,” she said. “He’s cool like that.”

Apparently, Lewis met with the campaign organizer, Paul McCartney, specifically to see if Cowell might be interested in signing up. With a solid history of supporting animal rights, McCartney obviously thought he would be a good fit.

Lewis, a long-time vegetarian, is committed to ending the abuses of the factory farming industry. “The meat industry is polluting the environment,” she said. “I’ve banned meat from all photo shoots to the tour itself simply because I don’t support the meat industry.”
