Whether Rivers Cuomo or the other members of Weezer are vegetarians has long been a topic of conversation on vegetarian boards, but he seems to confirm it in the new Weezer video for the song “(If You’re Wondering if I Want You To) I Want You To,” in which the line occurs, “Your mom cooked meat loat/even though I don’t eat meat.” It’s from the new album Raditude.
Note: Even as I was posting the Weezer video, the copyright police were disabling the visuals. Damn! As compensation, I’m posting the live rendition of the song featured on Letterman last night. Better watch soon before it gets disabled.
