99 problems but digesting meat ain't one: Jay Z and Beyonce go vegan

Long gone are the days when Jay Z packed heat like an oven door. Now he's packing his oven door with vegan cookies.

Hova has just announced via his Life and Times blog that he'll be going vegan for 22 days alongside his wife Beyoncé. So the winner of this sexiest vegan in the world contest better watch the throne.

Along with calling Magna Carta Holy Grail the "kale of Jay Z albums", First We Feast reposted Jay Z's blog announcement in full, in which Jay explains that he tested the waters with a plant-based breakfast regimen at the challenge of a vegan friend (presumably Bill Clinton). The 22 days signifies how long psychologists say it takes to break a habit, plus it's half of Jay Z's current age, and the time period also ends on Christmas Day, so "why not?" A rhetorical question that one might rebut with any of these Meatopia photos.

It's unclear whether Jay Z and Beyoncé plan to stick with veganism past Christmas, but at least for the next three weeks they'll be sticking to the blueprint for a healthy diet, even if it makes for a hard knock life.
