Chris Martin has turned his back on his vegetarian lifestyle, as the Coldplay lead singer is once again welcoming meat into his everyday diet.

Once named the World’s Sexiest Vegetarian by PETA, the musician recently announced his decision to no longer abstain from meat during a radio interview with Steve Wright on BBC Radio 2.

As he told the host, “I am not really vegetarian. I eat meat. I was vegetarian for a long time but for various reasons I changed.”

For years, the award-winning artist made a name for himself (alongside his former wife Gwyneth Paltrow, who has also been known to dabble in vegetarian and plant based eating) for his healthy lifestyle and diet.

It’s unclear as to when and why he decided to abandon his vegetarian ways, but as Martin also expressed during the interview vegetarianism hasn’t completely escaped his mind. “My daughter [Apple, 10] has been a vegetarian since she was born. I keep getting tempted to go back but I don’t eat too much meat.”
