We’re always a little surprised when a vegetarian celebrity manages to slip under our radar. Such is the case with music icon Janet Jackson.

Recently on The Tonight Show, Jackson revealed to Jay Leno that she “doesn’t eat meat” and regularly teeters between a vegan and pescatarian diet.

“When I was a kid I was a vegetarian,” says Janet. “I’ve bounced back and forth; I was vegan at one point. My trainer was afraid that I wasn’t getting enough protein, so I started eating fish…so pescatarian. I bounce back and forth.”

Again with the protein thing?! Somebody needs to get Janet’s trainer in touch with The Biggest Loser’s Bob Harper. Not only is Harper in super good shape, but he maintains it all on a strict vegan diet.

Check out the clip below of Janet discussing her veggie ways, and let us know what you think. We’re happy to have Jackson on the plant-powered team!

    She models fur for BlackGlama. So excuse me if I am not so thrilled to hear about her being a vegetarian!

    drop your fur!

  • Signe

    If she’s a vegan, it sure as hell is not because she doesn’t want animals to be killed. She is nothing but a lousy fur hag.

  • Michelle

    You should do your research before you post such stupid comments! Have you seen her trainer???? Bob Harper? Who is he besides being on a reality show and looking so frail. You take those qualifications and compare them to a professional Athletic Trainer. What kind of research do you do???
