Bow down! Queen Bey and her boo are forsaking animal products — but only for three weeks; let’s not get crazy now. (Jay-Z’s line at Barneys includes leather boxers, after all, as First We Feast pointed out.)
Jay-Z broke the news on his site:
On December 3rd, one day before my 44th birthday I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan, or as I prefer to call it, plant-based!!
Then he says some weird stuff we’ll overlook because math is hot:
Why now? There’s something spiritual to me about it being my 44th birthday and the serendipity behind the number of days in this challenge; 22 (2+2=4) coupled with the fact that the challenge ends on Christmas day … It just feels right! So you can call it a spiritual and physical cleanse.
So far they’ve hit up West Hollywood’s Real Food Daily restaurant, but Hov wants your ideas. (Is it just us or is he totally asking us out for vegan food? B can come too, I GUESS.)
Any professional vegans out there that have any great food spots please help out! Please ha.
Will Jay-Z decide that of his 99 problems, meat ain’t one? Or will Beyoncé conclude chicken is irreplaceable? (We’re pretty sure she’d be bootylicious no matter WHAT she ate.) The 22-day countdown starts now.
