Newsflash: Beyoncé and Jay-Z Are Best Friends with the Obamas

Just in case you forgot, Beyoncé and Jay-Z love Barack and Michelle Obama, and the First Family love them, too… so much so that Bey and Jay were invited – Blue Ivy in tow – to the White House to celebrate Michelle’s 50th birthday this past weekend.

The party wasn’t short on celebrities – John Legend was there (he and Bey apparently performed together), as were Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, Samuel L. Jackson and Smokey Robinson.

We all know by now that a party ain’t a party unless you take photos to post on Instagram/Tumblr/Twitter/Facebook/etc. so Beyoncé made sure to share some of the fun of the day: sitting with Bo, the Obamas’ dog, letting Blue doodle on the floor… laissez les bon temps rouler, as they say.

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

Jay+Z+Beyonce+Knowles

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.)

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.
