Unexpectedly, Ozzy Osbourne joins the ranks of celebrity vegans

Ozzy Osbourne veganBy Deborah Dunham for

Ozzy Osbourne, the former heavy metal singer who once made headlines for eating a bat, has now declared himself a vegan.

And while “The Prince of Darkness” is certainly not the first celebrity to make such a healthy lifestyle switch, we especially love the fact that it’s Ozzy this time.

It used to be when we heard of a celebrity going vegan, it was the stereotypical young, thin female (Natalie Portman, Alicia Silverstone, Lea Michele, Olivia Wilde), but, in the past months especially, we have seen many other types of stars embracing this lifestyle, including Mike Tyson, Jackass star Steve-O, Russell Brand and, of course, Bill Clinton.

All of which is excellent, because, to us, this just shows that going vegan is not the latest celebrity trend or front for losing weight, dieting or aspiring to a certain “look”—it’s truly a healthy lifestyle change that more and more people like are embracing simply because it makes them feel better (and it doesn’t matter if they have 15 tattoos or were the former lead singer for Black Sabbath).
