The latest announcement about Beyonce's vegan diet has caused a world of controversy for the "Crazy In Love" superstar, as she receives backlash over falsely advertising a supposed big announcement that ended up being the diet she was following, disappointing many of her fans who expected something like a new album, tour or even a second pregnancy with husband Jay Z.
While Beyonce's vegan diet has been causing controversy, she's actually joining in a much larger list of people who follow this lifestyle in Hollywood, including some of the biggest superstars in Tinsel Town!
Not long after Beyonce's vegan diet announcement, Cocoa Fab recently posted a list of some of the people in Hollywood that have entirely given up on animal products in their diet, and some of the names on it may shock fans who only know about their favorite stars' work!
Besides Beyonce's vegan diet, other singers who follow this eating style are "Problem" rising star Ariana Grande, "American Idol" winner Carrie Underwood, Mos Def, Ellie Goulding, Morrissey and at least two of the top singer-actors in the world as well, namely Jennifer Lopez and Jared Leto.
As far as actors go, Beyonce's vegan diet is also followed by a good number of people currently working in the big and small screen, according to Glamour Magazine, including "Bones" star Emily Deschanel, Oscar-winning actress Anne Hathaway, superstar Brad Pitt, Hollywood power couple Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi, Woody Harrelson and Joaquin Phoenix.
PETA, the often-controversial organization that works relentlessly for animal rights (and is sponsored by famously vegan star Pamela Anderson) also lists stars like "Frozen" actress-singer Kristen Bell, "Orange is the New Black" Scientologist Laura Prepon, Michelle Pfeiffer, "Big Bang Theory" actress Mayim Bialik among countless other celebrities that have vowed to take animal products completely off their diets.
So, however controversial Beyonce's vegan diet turns out, there are definitely a lot of people with her same mind frame in Hollywood!

The newly appointed editor-in-chief of Esquire Magazine, Michael Sebastian, recently told the press that he wants to get away from the idea that the magazine's reader is "a middle-aged white guy who likes brown liquor and brown leather").

Adding a squeeze of fresh lime and a dash of salt to a lager or pilsner has long been Mexican tradition, and in the 1980s, this practice evolved into the refreshing beer cocktail known as a michelada.

Rosé wine is made in almost every region in the world, from many different grape varieties. And rose-colored wine is produced in a sweet, dry, sparkling, and even fortified style.

Dominique Ansel moved from Paris to New York City to work at Daniel Boulud's French flagship Daniel as the executive pastry chef, a position he held for 6 years.
