Actually, not all vegans are hot.
It's time to re-evaluate the age-old questions that have plagued society for time immemorial: How are celebrities so hot? How do they stay hot? Is it their wealth—if you sleep on a bed of money, do you never age?
If that were true, George Lucas (ranked America's wealthiest celebrity in 2018) wouldn't look like George Lucas. Or is it as Jane Fonda says: "Good genes and a lot of money?" After living in the age of celebrity tabloid culture, toxic diet culture, and Instagram, most people agree that it is largely determined by good genes—but also a good diet. As such, celebrities are said to follow such outlandish (and dangerous) eating patterns as the "baby food diet," "the cookie diet," and the "mushroom diet."
You could also go vegan, like many of the hottest and probably healthiest celebrities today. While we want to dissuade you from the misconception that veganism is merely a diet or a fad rather than a committed lifestyle, November 1 is World Vegan Day, which means that if you eat beef in public, you might an angry stare from the 11% of the world population who are thought to follow a vegan, vegetarian, or even semi-vegetarian lifestyle. In response, you can just glare at them defiantly and say, "Do you want me to look like 2018's 'most beautiful vegan,' Benedict Cumberbatch? No? I didn't think so." Actually, don't do that. They're likely to start listing the dozens of hot celebrities who are also vegan—and while many are activists to encourage public awareness about animal cruelty and the environmental ravages of meat production, we're mostly listing them because they're hot.
So in honor of World Vegan Day: Educate yourself that veganism is a lifestyle and not just a diet, meat production has many damaging consequences, veganism may be the "single biggest way" to reduce your carbon footprint (up to 73%), and while not all vegans are hot, luckily there are so many types of hot that showing empathy and compassion for creatures other than ourselves might be the hottest quality to have.
Of course we're starting here. In 2018, he was even named PETA's Most Beautiful Vegan.

The Cocteau Twins' 1990 masterpiece is still the blueprint for dream pop.
For a band whose lyrics were famously difficult to make out most of the time, the Cocteau Twins left an indelible impact on the world of pop music.
The Scottish trio emerged in the 1980s as some of the most notable pioneers of dream pop, a subgenre of alternative rock defined by airy, sublime sonic textures. But it was their sixth album, Heaven or Las Vegas—which turns 30 today—that truly withstood the test of time, affirming the Cocteau Twins' status as perhaps the most important dream pop act of all time.
Now that Banksy's "Flower Thrower" trademark has been revoked, anyone can profit off his work.
This week anonymous street artist Banksy officially lost the European trademark to his "Flower Thrower" mural.
The guerrilla graffiti artist had engaged in a prolonged legal battle with the small greeting card company Full Colour Black—which was selling products featuring the image of a Palestinian man throwing a bouquet of flowers. But now a panel at the European Union Intellectual Property Office has announced their decision to revoke the artist's trademark on the grounds that he could not definitively prove himself to be the mural's creator.
