She may hail from Canada, but vegetarian singer k.d. lang has chosen to make Portland, Oregon her new hometown, because, in her opinion, it’s “a perfect city.”

Lang left the hustle and bustle of L.A. for Portland a few months ago, crediting the city’s connection with nature, laid-back vibe, and excellent food scene as reasons for the move.

“Over the years of coming through town, I always felt this very strong resonance with this town, and the area, and the general vibe of the city. I was really attracted to the city for years and years. It just got to the point where I felt it was time to leave Los Angeles, and Portland was my number one destination,” she said.

The abundance of meat-free restaurants is particularly important to the singer, who says that her vegetarian diet helps keep her voice in top shape.

“I’m kind of a foodie, so the culinary scene here is appealing,” she told the Oregonian. “Right now, I’m a gluten-free vegetarian, so that’s pretty limited but also exciting.” She also says that Portland reminds her of home. “And obviously, I’m a liberal, and this is a pretty liberal town, in fact one of the most liberal in America. I also find that it’s one of the most Canadian cities in America.”

Lang also appreciates Portland’s green scene, which is especially important since she’s living in an apartment for the first time, without a yard to call her own.

“One of the reasons I wanted to live here is it’s so walking and biking friendly. One of the great things about living in the Pearl is you can walk everywhere… I just think the proximity to nature is wonderful,” she said.
