Wearing an edible bespoke dress made entirely of fresh vegetables, Grammy Award–winning singer Mya stars in a brand-new campaign for PETA that proclaims, “Life in Color. Go Vegan for Life.”

The ad was shot during the singer’s Planet 9 world tour.

In an exclusive video interview with PETA, Mýa shares how her life has changed since she switched from vegetarian to vegan eating three years ago: “I’m no longer anemic. I’m intaking so many more healthy foods — obviously vegetables, nuts, greens, seeds that are iron-rich,” she says. “Dairy causes mucus buildup, which is awful for singers. I don’t get sick! And my skin is clear. I lost 30 pounds. I don’t have to go to the gym as much.”

And although Mýa describes herself as a “brand-new vegan,” she already knows that the change is here to stay: “[T]he more information about the truths and the harsh realities of treatment of animals … including seafood, including the dairy industry … it’s impossible to turn back,” she says. “Give vegan a try — it’ll grow on you.”

Other health benefits of going vegan include a decreased risk of suffering from heart disease, strokes, diabetes, cancer, and obesity compared to meat-eaters. And of course, every person who goes vegan spares approximately 100 animals every year daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s industrialized meat, egg, and dairy industries.

Mýa joins a growing list of celebrities — including RZA, Russell Simmons, Dawn Richard, Alicia Silverstone, Joaquin Phoenix, and Kimberly Elise — who have teamed up with PETA (whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”) to promote healthy and humane meat-free meals.
