Jay Z Goes Vegan for His Birthday; Beyonce Joins
Jay Z is going vegan as a self-inflicted present for his 44th birthday.
The rapper and entertainment mogul, who is celebrating his birthday today, decided to submit himself to a all charges paid, meat free, completely vegan diet for the next three weeks.
"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!!" the rapper wrote on his Life + Times blog Tuesday.
"This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a 'plant-based breakfast' everyday (sic). It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought..."
Jay Z, who is also a father of a toddler with his wife Beyonce, claims that his 44th birthday is veiled in a "spiritual" cloak of meaning for him, and he finds not less than than amusing the idea of ending his vegan journey on the Christmas Day.
And, who knows what will happen when the holidays are over?
"I don't know what happens after Christmas. A semi-vegan, a full plant-based diet? Or just a spiritual and physical challenge? We'll see..."
And, in case you were wondering. Yes, he wrote, "P.S. (Beyoncé) is also joining me."
