    Comedian Steven “Steve-O” Glover is proud to call himself a few things: a son, uncle, friend, comedian and a member of the MTV Jackass family. And as of 2010, he is an advocate for a vegan lifestyle.

    “I didn’t start out with the plan to go vegan,” he told Niteside from the Seminole Hard Rock Casino. “I started to think that eating meat was bringing me bad karma. At first, I just wanted to cut out all meat but fish. I figured Jesus fed people fish, so hey, it has to be OK, right?”

    But don’t expect to see Steve-O, who’s performing this weekend at the Ft. Lauderdale Improv, eating salmon anytime soon.

    “Then from no meat went to no fish and now I am strictly vegan. I have found it to be really beneficial. You never meet anyone who has gone vegan and told you, ‘I am not sleeping better. I am not feeling better.’ It has benefitted every aspect of my life. “

    Glover, who has been linked to ladies like Lindsay Lohan and Elisabetta Canalis, is currently single. But for any ladies looking to win him over, he says you need to follow his way of life.

    “My dream girl is 100% vegan, clean and sober, non-smoking, surfing enthusiast and with some kind of career and passion. I want someone with passion for something. It makes life worth living. “

    The future Mrs. Steve-O should also be ready to deal with his busy schedule. He told us, a new Jackass-like project is on the way to a theatre near you.

    “There is a new movie in the works. It’s not a Jackass movie, but a Jackass spinoff. It’s still in the early stages. The idea is to have the whole crew back again. It's going to be a lot more of the Jackass crew making cameos. I think people will be equally as excited for that.”
