Singer Rufus Wainwright has revealed his inner demons when it comes to his eating habits. In an interview with The Guardian, he discussed his struggles with maintaining a vegetarian diet and his attempts to stay away from meat.

Wainwright sat down with Guardian reporter Tom Lamont, and during their discussion at a restaurant in London delved right into the singer’s style of eating. While ordering, (he settled on burrata, lamb cutlets, broccoli and lentils), Wainwright revealed, “I have horrifying cholesterol levels.

“I should be dead at this moment. I’ve tried to be a vegetarian as well, but I keep falling off the horse and, like, eating it. My boyfriend is a vegetarian and I admire him tremendously so I’ve tried to find a way to do it. But I have a sorta monster in me.”

The 39-year-old singer also feels when you get to a certain age “you feel the need to reward yourself just for existing. But it’s a paradox, because the rewards are also kinda killing you.”

Wainwright hasn’t had the easiest life and dealt with some heavy issues while growing up. One of the biggest was his addiction to crystal meth. The drugs destroyed his body, and he was quite thin at one time, according to previous interviewers. Lamont also expresses how “cheerful, healthy-looking [and] even a little plump” Wainwright now looks. It’s great to see the singer doing so well.

Wainwright did divulge he will begin dieting when he starts touring for his new album “Out of the Game.” Maybe his diet will include healthier options and help him finally stick to vegetarian dishes.
