PETA member Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders vegetarian all the way

Well, you’ll never guess what Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and active member of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) Chrissie Hynde, lead singer of The Pretenders, is up to.

Lemme give you a hint. It’s got something to do with vegetarianism!

You go girl!
As you probably already guessed, animal rights activist Chrissie Hynde is opening a vegetarian restaurant to be entitled VegeTerranean. But here’s the interesting part. Chrissie Hynde, who lives in England, will be opening the restaurant in her hometown of Akron, Ohio.

The restaurant, which will serve vegetarian Mediterranean cuisine, is slated to open September 15th. Hynde will perform at the opening.

Interesting tidbit
When Chrissie Hynde was asked by a reporter what she had done to advance her vegetarian views, she jokingly replied she had blown up a McDonald's. Later on, one of her fans actually did blow up a McDonald's in her honor. Chrissie Hynde apologize for her accidental role in the tragedy.
