Usher is strongly urging Justin Bieber to go vegan. The singer and Bieber mentor recently gave the lifestyle a try and says the health benefits are tremendous. Would Justin be able to do a vegan diet? He and Selena Gomez eat out at a lot of restaurants that definitely don't cater to vegan lifestyles.
According to a report from RadarOnline, Usher has always bordered on being a vegetarian, but now is taking another huge step toward going vegan.
"Usher frequents a few vegan restaurants in New York City and not only loves the food, but feels like it's the healthiest way to live," a source says. "He's desperate to get Bieber on the same health kick he is and thinks with all the touring and busy schedule he has, it would keep him energized."
So far Justin isn't taking the bait. He does regard Usher very highly, however, as both a mentor and a friend, so it's not a lost cause yet.
It seems Usher's dad died of a heart attack back in 2008, so the singer is serious about living a much healthier life than he's lived in the past.
"Usher is really close to Bieber, so he's pushing the importance of eating healthy on him and it's something he takes really serious," the source adds.
Justin and girlfriend Selena Gomez are known to frequent restaurants like IHOP and Hooter's--which definitely don't foster vegan eating. They also like Kentucky Fried Chicken and Subway--and while Subway is definitely the healthier of the two, it's still not conducive to veganism.
Do you think Usher will eventually be successful at converting Justin Bieber to a vegan lifestyle? And if so will he get Selena Gomez on board as well?
Those who watch the two while their on their dates or steal a few quick moments together on a film set know they have a definite passion for junk food. Might they consider giving all that up for good health?
