from - apparently submitted by site visitors:

Billy is a vegetarian. He doesn't eat meat, but does wear leather.
The only reason Idol is a vegetarian is because according to him, rock and roll and food don't go together.
Billy Idol is a vegetarian. He became a vegetarian not due to animal rights but due to the fact of being a rocker, drinking and keeping weird hours, his stomach would get upset. So he made a conscious decision to stop eating meat to avoid the stomach problems. He loves his leather pants
He is a vegetarin

from wikitalk - unsourced:

Idol became a vegetarian because he wanted to look like David Bowie [rather odd as Bowie was never vegetarian]. He is still largely a vegetarian but does eat shellfish. [both of these comments have appeared elsewhere, probably all copying each other...]
