“I hear you are vegan,” says Bloom.
“As someone who is 90 percent plant-based at this point … I was wondering what your reasons are for being vegan?”
“Once you know about something like this … it’s really hard to go back.”
Eilish responded. “” I’m vegan. I’ve been vegan for – damn it – seven years.
“I learned something about the dairy industry and the meat industry that I already knew … But when you know something like that and see it, it’s really hard to go back.
“And now, even though I have a lot of friends who eat dairy and meat and don’t want to tell anyone what to do, I just can’t go on in my life knowing what’s going on in the wildlife and I can’t do anything about it.”
Eilish regularly uses her platform to campaign for veganism – and to shed light on the climate crisis.
The celeb was asked what she thinks the world will be like when she turns 80 in her last interview with Vanity Fair.
“Girl, I won’t live before 80, neither of us is!” Replied Eilish.
“Are you kidding me? We have 10 years left … We have to help the environment. I hope the world doesn’t say it’s over for you and then kill us all.”
