'LIVE with Kelly and Michael': The Wonder of Stevie Wonder

By MAGDALENA GUILLEN

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.
