Bryan Adams has credited his vegan diet for being the possible reason his blonde locks haven’t yet turned grey.
The singer, 60, from Canada, who has followed a plant-based diet for the last 30 years, also suggested it’s helped him to stay in shape.
‘I’d love to see a comparison photo of me if I hadn’t taken this path. My guess is I’d be a lot heavier and perhaps I’d have gone grey,’ he said, speaking to The Mirror.
‘Oddly, at 60, neither have happened, and I can only attribute that to what I’ve been ingesting.’

He also told that he would probably be ‘a lot heavier’ if it wasn’t for his plant-based diet, too. Pictured, performing on ‘The Jonathan Ross Show’ TV show in London on 2 March 2019
The rock star, best known for his worldwide hit (Everything I Do) I Do It For You’, has long been a vocal environmentalist and even found a way to counter the carbon footprint he leaves while travelling the world on tour.
The singer, who backed The Daily Mail’s Great British Spring Clean in March, hoped his idea to plant a tree for every ticket sold – which was backed by his tour sponsor DHL – would encourage other touring musicians to do the same.
‘We’re doing something interesting,’ he said at the time. ‘We’re planting a tree for every ticket we sell and so we’ve probably played to between 800,000 to one million people this year so that’s a million trees, that’s a small forest. Isn’t that cool? I hope that’s a moral that’s going to be taken by a lot of other artists going forward.’
Adam said he has ‘always’ been conscious of the environment as he comes from Vancouver, ‘where there was a lot of great environmentalism that happened back then in the 70s’.

He became a vegan when he was 28 and has supported a number of environmental charities throughout his career.
Meanwhile, his 14th studio album has proved a hit with fans and features collaborations with the likes of Ed Sheeran and Jennifer Lopez.
He said that he is still learning as he goes as there is ‘no handbook’ for being a performer.
‘I hope you learn something as you go on – you’re supposed to,’ he said. ‘What’s the adage, older and wiser? It’s supposed to happen, you can hone your craft over a number of years so for me it’s getting out there and doing the songs – presenting them in the best way possible.
‘You should always remember your roots, remember where you come from because that will dictate where you’re going. There’s no information, there’s no handbook.’
The Broadway musical adaptation of Pretty Woman, for which Adams has written the music and lyrics, will come to London in 2020.
