Will.i.am, member of the Black Eyed Peas and judge on The Voice, recently announced that he has transitioned to a vegan diet! Due to health concerns, Will.i.am made the decision to commit to a healthier lifestyle. He said, “They said I had high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I was like, ‘Why am I having that?’.
