Could You Go Vegan? Beyonce And Jay Z Are…For 22 Days


Beyoncé and Jay Z are going to be vegans — well, for 22 days at least. Could you take the vegan challenge? Jay Z wants to because he’s turning 44 and wants to use it as an excuse to be healthy or some shit. He wrote on his blog:

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!! This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a “plant-based breakfast” every day. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought…

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. I will post my progress…

[...] P.S. B is also joining me.

I bet Gwyneth had part in this. Let’s hope they don’t go full Paltrow.

Are you Vegan? If not, could you be?

(Oh and if you’re wondering “why 22 days?” it’s because Jay Z read somewhere that it takes 22 days to form a habit.)

Listen Up: Beyoncé’s New Song ‘God Made You Beautiful’

Beyonce's "Life Is But A Dream" Documentary on HBO

Beyoncé recently released the DVD of her documentary Life Is But a Dream, and those who purchased it also got a free download of a new song called ‘God Made You Beautiful’. I feel like the latent Beyoncé stan in me should rise from the ashes and be all over this, but… it’s kinda shit. I guess it’s precious that it’s all about Blue Ivy and how the angels rejoiced when she was born and all that shit, but I just feel a bit bored. I feel like this song should be playing over the closing credits of an animated Disney film, and that’s not really what you want from your divas, is it?

I don’t know, maybe it needs another listen, but I could barely get through the first one. What do you think?

Beyonce Fans Think They Can Keep Her From Going To Kim Kardashian’s Wedding

Beyoncé fans think they can keep her from going to Kim and Kanye‘s wedding through a simple petition. It reminds me of the Fifty Shades of Grey casting petition — guys, not gonna happen. More from Daily News:

A petition was reportedly started Thursday by a fan named John Barry who wanted others to join him in rallying against the 32-year-old singer going to West and Kardashian’s big day. The petition entitled “Beyonce Cannot Attend Kim Kardahian’s Wedding” immediately sparked responses from Beyonce fans across the country.

“As you all know by now Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have sadly been in the news for their ‘engagement,’” the petition began.

Unapologetic, Barry candidly detailed the main reason the “Irreplaceable” singer should not go to their nuptials.
“Kim Kardashian and her disgusting family are known for their rise to fame for doing absolutely nothing,” it read. “Now we must do all in our power to stop Beyonce from attending the god forsaken (sic) wedding, since her husband Jay Z is BFFs with Kanye he probably (sic) wants both of them to go.”

I guess they weren’t touched by their incredibly moving engagement proposal as we all were.

To the left, to the left.

What In the Hell is Beyoncé’s 2014 Calendar?

beyonce 2014 calendar 6

Believe me when I tell you that I wanted to look at the photos from Beyoncé‘s 2014 calendar and think, “Oh shit, this is (Sasha) FIERCE!” but I just cannot. I’m not sure who devised the concept for these photos (most likely the Queen herself), but it’s all wrong. Every single shot is just… terrible. This is her first ever official calendar and was made by photographers Herring & Herring and the arts agency Schierke, but if it was gonna be this bad, she shoulda never had one to begin with.

The pseudo-sexy poses, the weird masculine “I can wear a hat and smoke a cigar while still showing a little bit of my tits” nonsense… none of it works and quite frankly, it comes off looking a little cheap. If I didn’t know better, I’d think the photo with the white draped dress was Mary J Blige! A big ole NOPE goes out to this whole thing.

Am I wrong here? Are these shots actually hot? Someone explain it to me!

Do You Want to See Beyoncé In Concert?


Y’all know I was hyped up about going to the Mrs Carter World Tour earlier this year to see Beyoncé do her thing live. That didn’t end up happening – it was the night before we went to Vegas and the tickets didn’t show up in time (I got a refund) and also, I kinda went off Bey for no real reason. She just kinda… gets on my nerves now. Maybe it’s all the flooding of my Tumblr/Instagram timelines she does with gratuitous, self-indulgent pics that she tags “#mywork” even if it’s just a snap of stans lined up outside a concert venue.

In any case, Bey is currently over in Australia and there are still some tickets available for her remaining dates in the country, so to promo that and hopefully sell out all these venues, she released the following footage:

I mean, that looks nice and all, but I wouldn’t pay the prices she’s charging for it, to be honest. Are we starting to get all Bey’d out?

Beyoncé and Blue Ivy Have An Awesome Life

It seems like little Blue Ivy is growing up before our eyes, and I suppose that only makes sense since that’s what children do – grow and all. While Bey seemed initially hesitant to share photos of her little one, that’s certainly changed and we know that Blue looks EXACTLY like her father. No doubts of paternity there! Sure, they might try to cleverly make her hide behind objects so that her whole face isn’t shown, but that’s just Beyoncé’s super ~artsy~, Tumblr-friendly photography at play.

I’m not sure where they are in these photos, but doesn’t it look like a wonderfully luxurious and leisure-filled life? God, must be nice. Also, it’s after Labor Day, so get rid of the white hammock (lolz I kid).

Jay Z And Beyonce Are Forbes Highest Earning Couple With HOW Much?

Jay Z and Beyoncé are crazy in wealth, placing #1 on Forbes highest-earning celebrity couples list. And with HOW much? Forbes estimates, “$95 million in earnings between June 2012 and June 2013.”

That sort of number makes me want to type LOL for 5 minutes straight (don’t worry, I won’t.) I can’t even comprehend that much money. How did they get so much much money? Forbes points to the evidence.

Both are musicians at the top of their games, with multiple hits under their belts. Jay Z’s recent Watch the Throne album went platinum and launched a world tour that brought in $1.4 million per night in America. Knowles, who took a short break when her daughter Blue Ivy was born in January last year, was back with a vengeance this year with her Mrs. Carter world tour, which grossed an average $2 million per night.

Then there are their other interests. Jay Z is a part owner of the new Barclays BCS -2.07% Center in Brooklyn, where the Brooklyn Nets play. He sold his stake in the team and now has to dump his share in the arena, too, because he’s started his own sports agency: Roc Nation Sports, which represents star athletes like Kevin Durant and Victor Cruz. Knowles has a fragrance collection and a clothing line called House of Deron.

Here’s the rest of the list, following Bey and J:

2. Tom Brady & Gisele Bundchen: $80 million
3. Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie: $50 million
4. Ashton Kutcher & Mila Kunis: $35 million
5. Kim Kardashian & Kanye West: $30 million

It boggles the mind.
