Angela Simmons recently posed nude for Peta's new campaign "Eating Meat Is A Sin," aimed to help promote a vegetarian lifestyle.
Ms. Simmons is a newly converted vegetarian. She says her uncle, Russell Simmons, helped inspired her to make the change. In fact, she eventully hopes to become a vegan.
In a statement, she explains how Russell helped change her eating habits and how it was difficult in the beginning with her family of meat lovers.
"I eat pretty well, I’m a vegetarian. Hopefully I’ll be a vegan in a couple of years, but I’m taking it one step at a time. My uncle inspired me to become a vegetarian, a vegan, when I was young. He had me watch this video, I can’t remember the name of it, but I was only about 12 or 13 and he gave it to our family. No one else watched it except me. At that age, I tried to be a vegetarian and I couldn’t do it because I was in a family that ate so much meat. But I finally made the change and it’s been like a year and a half now and I’m pretty proud of myself. I’m feeling good and I do work out a lot"
