Here’s my theory: this whole “going vegan for 22 days” thing was allllllll Jay Z’s idea and he swindled Beyonce into participating. But Bey is starting to miss meat and cheese and dairy and all of its associated deliciousness, and a quiet rage at both Jay and the vegan lifestyle has started to brew inside her. So every time she steps out to a vegan restaurant for the rest of this miserable experiment, Bey is gonna wear her love of animal flesh on her person, goddammit. Yesterday, Bey wore head-to-toe pepperoni pizza print to go out for a vegan lunch. And today she’s taken it up a notch, wearing leather pants and a cow hide sweatshirt to Crossroads Cafe in West Hollywood, a popular, yes, vegan joint. Former Frisky editor, forever friend and vegan Julie Gerstein called it Beyonce’s “silent protest.”
There are still many, many days until this vegan challenge is over. I wonder when Bey will call up Lady Gaga and ask to borrow her meat dress? [Photos: Pacific Coast News]
UM, UPDATE: And another example I missed! On Thursday, Jay and Bey went out for vegan lunch and Beyonce wore FOX FUR. God, I can only imagine PETA’s collective brain is exploding over what to do because on one hand, I’m sure they would love to use Jayonce going vegan as good publicity, but on the other hand, Bey having absolutely zero fucks to give about wearing animals pelts in a vegan restaurant kinds musses up the message. Anyhoo, Jay said that he and Beyonce are doing this vegan challenge for “spiritual reasons,” which I guess we now know has absolutely nothing to do with saving animals.
