Celebrity singer-songwriter Katy Perry says she’s ready to be 100 percent vegan.

The star, who’s an investor in plant-based meat brand Impossible Foods, made the statement to her 109 million Twitter followers.

‘Pray for us’

“I’m about 95 percent ready to be 100 percent vegan…” Perry wrote.

“My dog Nugget has been joining me on this journey for the past four months. Pray for us ok.”

The tweet stirred opinion with fans, with some praising Perry for the lifestyle change and others condemning the move.

One social media user wrote: “Dogs shouldn’t be vegan, so please continue providing their necessary requirements! Also, I mean being imperfectly vegan is fine like just do your best out there and don’t beat yourself up for any mistakes.”

Another user responded to the comment, stating: “Please stop spreading misinformation. Dogs absolutely can thrive and vastly improve their health on plant-based diets.

“I urge people not to read silly comments like this and please do actual research on the topic.”

Katy Perry’s pregnancy

During her pregnancy, Perry revealed she was ‘grossed out’ by beef and that she wasn’t ‘really into red meat’.

The star instead opted for the Impossible Burger – which has received praise from both her and her husband Orlando Bloom.

*According to animal rights charity PETA, with ‘the right planning and care’, dogs can be plant-based, adding that ‘it’s important to ensure that their nutritional requirements are met’.

The charity says: “Dogs require two amino acids, L-carnitine and taurine, which are usually added to vegan dog foods or can be added as supplements.

Moreover, many experts recommend transitioning your dog to a vegan diet under the supervision of your vet.

Dogs thrive on meat. People thrive on plants. I’ll pray for the dog.
