London: Pop star Katy Perry is finding it hard to stick to her pledge to stay vegetarian and has been secretly eating chicken and meat, a friend has claimed.

The 26-year-old singer gave up eating meat two years ago to keep her vegetarian husband Russell Brand happy but is now finding it difficult to stay away from non-veg delicacies, reported Daily Mail.

"Russell has been a veggie for 22 years, but Katy adores meat. She did give it up for a while for Russell`s sake but is finding it a struggle," said a friend of Perry.

Brand, however, is sticking to his diet after winning the PETA title of the sexiest vegetarian in June.

"Even as a junkie I stayed true to vegetarianism. I shall have heroin, but I shan`t have a hamburger. What a sexy little paradox," he said.
