In honor of his 44th birthday, Jay Z is going vegan. Because he's rich enough to actually afford things like "veganic sprouted brown rice cacao crisps." 

Technically, Jay's only going vegan for 22 days, which is still 22 days too long to go without bacon. Hova took to his blog Life + Times to share the news. 

"I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan," he wrote. "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?" he continued. "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)." Everyone knows four is Beyonce and Jay Z's favorite number.

Jay decided to try it out as part of a "spiritual and physical cleanse," and Beyonce is joining him on the journey as well. Luckily for them, the cleanse ends on Christmas Day. So they'll be free to go as HAM as they want.
