Will.i.am has announced that he no longer puts ‘decayed flesh’ in his body

Nothing like hearing the words ‘decayed flesh’ of a Tuesday morning, but you can thank Will.i.am for that.

The performer has recently announced he has drastically overhauled his diet after realising that his health had been suffering.

Speaking on Arianna Huffington’s Thrive Global podcast, the 43-year-old urged listeners to ditch meat and embrace plants in a pronouncement that has most of us gagging delicately into our sleeves.

It changed my life, and I would encourage everybody to have a plant-based regimen.

OK fair enough, but then he starts talking… flesh.

You don’t need the meat, you don’t need to have decaying flesh in your body. The more I think about it I was like, ‘Ew.’ I was just, I had death in me.

And in case the cheap seats in the back hadn’t quite heard, he reiterated:

Decayed flesh and crazy chemicals I can’t pronounce. You wouldn’t put that s— in your car.

Alright great, thanks for that.

Chloe Moretz contemplated cosmetic surgery as a teen star

Chloe Moretz was just seven when she stepped foot on a film set, and while she appears to have avoided the curse of the child star, the 21-year-old has admitted that it wasn’t always easy to grow up in the spotlight.

Speaking to The Times, the actress revealed that when she was a teenager a push-up bra was placed in her trailer – something which ultimately sparked a wave of insecurities.

Recalling seeing two ‘chicken cutlets’ alongside the bra, Chloé admitted she felt stunned.

I was, like: where did these come from? Those little things were insidious.

The actress, who was 16 at the time, went onto admit that the incident caused her to question her size and shape, despite knowing she should try to ignore the ‘suggestion’.

Even though you can brush them off, you still internalise them. They make you question yourself and think: well, maybe I am unhappy with the size of my breasts.

Chloe once found herself in a spat with Kim Kardashian after she suggested the reality star triggered insecurities among young women who may believe their body is all they have to offer the world.
