Remember Terri Nunn? Remember the 80′s group Berlin?
We have a diverse group of readers. Some of you might have rocked out with them. Some of your parents might have rocked out with them. Still, some of you may have been conceived to them.
Terri Nunn is the lead singer who sang the popular song, “Take My Breath Away,” (go ahead and have an 80s flashback and listen) on the Top Gun Soundtrack (which a very young pre-Oprah couch jumping Tom Cruise starred in).
She’s been a vegetarian since her late teens, turning to the lifestyle to cure what years of eating junk did that doctors couldn’t fix.
She has been named one of VH1′s Greatest Women in Rock and has been grouped with all the great female rockers like Joan Jett and Chrissie Hynde (who similarly don’t eat meat). Still taking everybody’s breath away after over two decades, she spoke with Las The Place not only about her CD coming out next year, but her feelings about how the government judges the quality of the meat that arrives at your supermarket.
“The main reason I don’t eat meat is because you find out in your studies that the factory farming of animals creates very sick animals. It’s so bad nowadays that the USDA no longer grades IF the animals are sick, it grades how sick they are. Isn’t THAT sick?…I’m thrilled about Proposition 2 passing here in California last week! That’s a healthy step forward, not just for the animals but for the people who eat them.”
“There are so many great soy products out there now, from hot dogs to meat substitutes. Even my kids like them!”
