Highlight Story

Singer Shakira says that she gave up eating meat after she was given four chickens to look after.

"I named them and they became very close to me. And then I couldn't eat them. I was like, 'Okay, if I cannot eat these chickens because they actually have names and they are my friends, I am not going to be able to eat any chicken again.' So I became a vegetarian," contactmusic.com quoted Shakira as saying.

But she soon gave in to her cravings.

"I lasted for one month. I tried, I really tried. Yeah, I gave it a go," she added.

Shakira is now a happy carnivore again, but says she didn't kill her pet chickens.

"I didn't last as a vegetarian, but I did not eat those chickens. I promise those chickens survived," she said.
