Ne-Yo is bidding meat and diary adieu after watching the "What the Health" documentary.
In a video posted to Facebook, the singer walks the aisles of the grocery store while speaking about his decision to go meat free. The documentary critiques the way humans eat animal products.
"Thanks to the 'What the Health' documentary, I have gone vegan. Completely vegan," he said. "I need y'all to send me some vegan recipes and stuff that I can actually eat 'cause I'm in the grocery store lost."
In his video, which he captioned "Anyone going vegan with me?" Ne-Yo meanders through the grocery store and wonders what products he can eat.
"This is about to be really, really difficult," he says before turning to the camera and adding, "I don't cook, y'all, I don't cook."
To make it a bit harder, Ne-Yo said he's never been a fan of fruits or vegetables or he's willing to make it work.
Throughout the video he asked his fans to send him vegan recipes and restaurant recommendations.
"I ain't messing with that meat no more," he says. "Sorry, I can't. After watching that. Can't do it. It's really a little mind blowing at how blissfully ignorant I was for so long with the stuff that I was eating… To each his own, do what you do, but me, I'm out."
This isn't exactly Ne-Yo's first stab at veganism.
"I did the vegan thing one time before. I lasted for like a month or so," he said, referring to when he lived in Los Angeles, which has a plethora of vegan restaurants. He resides in Atlanta now, which he thinks makes it more difficult. "They fry water in Atlanta," he said.
Toward the end of the 4-minute video, he stood near the store's deli counter and even apologized to cheese.
"I just want to say to all the cheese of the world, I am so desperately going to miss you," he said. "You were a good, good friend of mine. But you're trying to kill me, so I can't eat you."
