There is no doubt about it that Stevie Wonder is looking great these days, but what contributes to his already fabulous self?

"I've been a vegan for two years, so that's helped my already good-looking self," joked the musician. "I think that eating healthy is important."

The legendary singer put his best green foot forward at Global Green's Annual Pre-Oscar Party and told AOL why he's supporting the fight against climate change.

"We have to be about making our planet more greener, the urban areas more sustainable for the children," said Wonder. "We can't just talk about it, we have to be about it."

Converting to a vegan lifestyle definitely has contributed to his cause of saving the environment and he wants others to follow suit.

"I'm motivating people to do something about how we are living on this planet," said Wonder.

The musician expressed himself strongly on the ways we're treating our planet and how plans to use his talents to be able to make a difference.

"You know it is only possible to be able to have the blessing of song through the fact that God has given me life," said Wonder. "And the only way we can have life is by perpetuating life in how we live."

And speaking of talents, where does Mr. Wonder keep his infamous Oscar statue?

​"I keep it close to my heart."

Well said, Mr. Wonder.
