If you were wondering why Katy Perry dressed up as an Impossible Burger at the Met Gala last week, it would seem that the pop star has a personal steak (sorry, had to) in the plant-based meat company. As Reuters reported, a slew of celebrities just made significant investments totaling $300 million in Impossible Foods. 

The company is now worth $2 billion.

Vegetarians, vegans, and omnivores alike have all applauded the burger for expertly mimicking meat but without the same environmental, animal welfare, or health concerns.
