Not that R&B superstar Usher Raymond has ever been in anything less than pristine physical condition, but he decided to switch to a veggie-based diet anyway about 5 years ago. Apparently the 35-year-old Atlanta, G.A. native began to seriously consider the switch after his father died of a heart attack early in 2008.

Usher became vegan in 2012, eliminating all animal products from his diet. Photo credit: s_buckley / Shutterstock.com
