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.

Well, This Story About Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s Former Longtime Bodyguard Will Make You Vomit

Every once in a while, a fucked up story comes along that makes you lose your faith in humanity. Well, in the regular news that happens nearly on a daily basis – but even the celebrities aren’t exempt. Let’s go back to a CDAN blind item from back in February:

Remember how back in the day Tiger Woods traded cover stories so that his infidelities could be hidden? Well, an A++ list celebrity has reached a similar deal and is appearing on a cover that she would have laughed at a year ago until she passed out from laughing so hard. The thing is, the parent company of the magazine was offered some information about the celebrity. Disturbing information. About a long time employee. About the employee being caught pleasuring himself to photos of our celebrity and her infant daughter. Yeah, it is pretty sick. There is video of the incident that was taken by a woman he paid to have sex with. They are both drunk in the video but he talks about how he works for the celebrity and was her very first employee and has been with her forever and the hooker went to sell the story and the publishing company loved it. Was going to buy it and reached out to the people of the celebrity and they traded. Cover stories for a block on the publication of the photos and video. The celebrity also got together with her A++ list husband and they paid the hooker a great deal of money to go away. So, in the next couple of months when you see a cover and go wtf, now you know why.

Well, turns out that person was Beyoncé and Jay-Z‘s former bodyguard, Norman Oosterbroek – yes, the same one who was recently shot and killed by police in Miami. And yes, that means he was caught jerking off over Blue Ivy’s passport – a fucking baby. What a sicko.

The NY Daily News posted a bit more about things:

Oosterbroek’s life spiraled out of control in the past months after he lost his job looking out for Jay, Bey and their daughter, Blue Ivy. It all fell apart after the power couple discovered the hulking guard had hired the services of a prostitute while on duty for them in Las Vegas, a source tells us.

The duo also allegedly discovered photographic and video evidence showing Oosterbroek using the family’s passports in a lewd act.

The story was first uncovered by a major print publication last year, which approached Jay Z and Beyoncé for comment. The couple then made a deal to ensure the story never saw the light of day, according to our source.

“Beyoncé and Jay Z were furious when they found out,” said the source. “They trusted Norman with their lives and then he went and did some pretty freaky things, and on video with a hooker. They were outraged.”

Once they found out about his behavior, the couple didn’t feel safe allowing Oosterbroek around their daughter, so they cut him loose, the source tells us.

“They really thought Norman was now a danger to Blue Ivy,” says the source. “From what I understand he was devastated, because a lot of people in the industry knew that he couldn’t be trusted and not to hire him.”

Dear God, what a sicko! Also, I love that his depression stemmed from not being able to get a job rather than from the fact that he was sick enough to jerk off over an infant’s picture. What is wrong with the world?
