Quantcast Vegetarian StarKellie Pickler (3)

45th Annual Academy Of Country Music Awards - Arrivals

What do Laura Bell Bundy and Natalie Portman have in common?

They both were involved in the off-broadway show Ruthless! The Musical.

Bundy played the role of Tina Denmark and Portman and Britney Spears were her understudies.

But Bundy and Portman had nothing in common when it came to food, as she told the Huffington Post, “We were actually good friends and had sleepovers. She was a vegetarian at 10 years old and I liked chicken on the bone. So we deferred a little bit in our eating choices, but we were very good friends, and we’d put on pageants and we’d make crank calls and we did all kinds of stuff.”

Any chance of Bundy calling up fellow country music ladies Carrie Underwood and Kellie Pickler and asking them to share a seitan recipe every now and then?

Kellie Pickler Is So Cheesy

Written by Vegetarian Star on Friday, January 8th, 2010 in Female Singers, Food & Drink.

UPI POY 2009 - Entertainment.

Sure, Kellie Pickler may have been following a “healthy” vegetarian diet for the past couple of years, thanks to another American Idol alumnus, but that doesn’t mean she always chooses the best combination of foods to eat.

Krispy Kreme, cheese and wine make up a big portion of her food pyramid, according to The Boot.

“I love cheese!” Pickler said. “I could eat just blocks of it. … Velveeta Shells and Cheese, cheddar cheese, wine and cheese. It’ll be the death of me. That and Krispy Kreme. Every time that ‘hot’ sign is on, buddy, I’m pulling right through that drive-thru. They know me down there. They’re like, ‘Oh, it’s Pickler again. She’s comin’ back for more!'”

Whoa there, Kellie.

Calcium may be great for the bones, but what about the saturated fat found in cheese and other dairy products ?

One of Kellie’s New Year’s resolutions is make more use of her treadmill.

After a workout on the human hamster wheel, maybe Kellie will reach for whole grain pasta with vinaigrette instead of Velveeta Shells and cholesterol.

Kellie Pickler And Turkeys Cool With Each Other

Written by Vegetarian Star on Tuesday, October 20th, 2009 in Animal Issues, Celebrity Tweets, Female Singers.

2nd Annual ACM Honors

Kellie Pickler made a Tweet about the new stray animals that keep coming back to her place.

“thanksgiving is right around the corner. funny how all the turkey’s hang out in my yard. I guess they know I’m a vegetarian.”

Ah, must be nice knowing there’s a vegetarian safe haven on the planet in the midst of millions of other turkey beheading Sarah Palin households.

BTW, if no turkeys are showing up in your backyard, you can still have a pet of your own through the Farm Sanctuary Adopt-A-Turkey program. For $25, you can sponsor a turkey living at the sanctuary.

Although it’d be great if you guys could be pen pals, currently calligraphy isn’t taught to the birds on the sanctuary.

Yes, there’s a recession, but is Kellie Pickler really in need of another day job?

Or is she suiting up for her Halloween costume?

Pickler tweeted this pick of herself, calling it the Pickler-dog (vegan style).

Pickler took this while playing around in Target, so you might be able to go as a veggie dog this Halloween too.

Be sure to research which candies have dairy products in them, vegans.

BMIs 57th Annual Pop Awards - Arrivals

American Idol winner Jordin Sparks has announced she would like to give seitan and tofu a try.

“Eventually I’d like to be a vegetarian because I think it’s healthier for me,” Jordin said, according to famousveggie.net.

The singer recently revealed to Self Magazine that for the first time in her career, she’s brought along a  professional trainer on her tour with the Jonas Brothers.

“Last year, I didn’t do anything to stay in shape on tour,” Jordin said. “I just kind of loved the fact that I was on tour. But I was exhausted all the time, and I realize now, if I had worked out and ate healthier and made smarter choices, I would have had a lot more energy onstage.”

Will her new healthier lifestyle change include her own personal veggie chef on tour as well?

Will Jordin make the plunge and join Carrie Underwood and Kellie Pickler as Idol veggie queens?

Chime in and let us know what you think!

Kellie Pickler Sparks Veggie Hate Among Country Folk

Written by Vegetarian Star on Thursday, June 18th, 2009 in Female Singers.

2009 CMT Music Awards - Arrivals

She hasn’t held her title for even a month and already controversy is happening.

No, Kellie Pickler hasn’t been found in revealing photographs of her chomping on hamburgers after winning PETA’s Sexiest Vegetarian Contest. But there are some that wish she would.

Amanda Nolz at Beef magazine recently blogged on the Beef Daily blog (Seriously, we’re not kidding. We know you’ll want to bookmark that in your browser as well as subscribe to the Beef Daily e-newsletter.) that Kellie was an example of a country music star who had turned away from country values.

Just like evil Carrie Underwood who donated funds from her American Idol elimination song to the Humane Society, Kellie is ruining everything country. Well, shame on her!

“Well, it’s no secret that I’m not a fan of Carrie Underwood, a vocal vegetarian who actively teams up with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), and you’ve heard me rant and rave about the “Oprah Effect,” where anything Oprah says, the world listens to as fact. It’s unfortunate that others like Kellie Pickler are now following suit. Time and time again, these celebrities stand up and against America’s food producers, heightening an already troubling outlook consumers have on farmers and ranchers.”

“Even though we don’t have fame, fortune and our faces on the cover of magazines, farmers and ranchers have the capability to feed 144 people each year. We have the determination and drive to produce a safe and wholesome product to feed the world. Agriculturalists are truly people to look up to, and today, I challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and tell your story. It’s time we let our voices be heard. Who’s with me?”

Uh, not us. But anyway…

It must be tough for someone from some parts of the U.S. South, farming background or living in the heart of “cattle country” to go against the grain and be veg. Kudos to them.

Are you a cattle rancher kid who went wild and became veg, much to the disappointment of your friends and family?
