What is the difference between a vegan diet and a vegan lifestyle?
Well if you are Beyoncé, Jay Z and Jennifer Lopez it is wearing fur or the skin of any dead animal for that matter. To them, if you are on a “vegan diet” there is absolutely no contradiction in wearing real fur.
An authentic vegan adopts a lifestyle that does not exploit other animals in any way. Alternatives to animal products are found in every situation. A vegan lifestyle is a profound and compassionate philosophy on life.
The celebs above trivialise this philosophy by promoting the latest Hollywood fad diet, namely the
In December 2013 Beyoncé and her husband Jay Z put this diet on the menu.
They went on a plant-based diet for 22 days ~ not out of compassion for other species and the planet but in pursuit of a ‘perfect body’.
The latest celebrity to try this diet is Jennifer Lopez.
These celebrities are renowned for their love of wearing real fur ~ the more fur the better, in their narcissistic eyes.
Beyoncé in fur
Beyoncé even had the audacity to wear a fox fur collar to a vegan restaurant.
And if wearing real fur is not enough for Beyoncé, below are her custom-made sneakers, made from the skin of snakes, stingrays, crocodiles, and ostriches ~ specifically killed for this single pair of sneakers!
This jacket, worn by Jay Z, is from Jigga’s clothing line, Rocawear. It is advertised as having “fake fur”.
According to an investigation by the Humane Society of the United States, this ‘Hunter jacket’ on Rocawear.com contains real fur from a raccoon dog. This canine is indigenous to Asia and skinned alive for the coats.

Jennifer Lopez is so disliked by anti-fur campaigners that there is a face book page named, Boycott J. Lopez, Protest Her Wearing Fur, the Skin of Murdered Animals.
Sadly, I think these celebs just thrive on attention, even if it is negative.
