Last week, Jay Z announced that he and Beyoncé would be adopting a "plant-based" diet for 22 days, starting on the eve of Jay's birthday and lasting until Christmas. In a note on Life+Times, he explained that it's a "spiritual and physical cleanse" but from jump, it hasn't seemed like Bey has been in the, well, spirit.
Our first piece of evidence was the fox fur jacket she rocked to vegan restaurant Native Foods in Los Angeles. Naturally, the media has a little bit of freak out, citing that her sartorial choices were not in line with the dietary mission that she and her husband have been embarking on. But the couple never announced they were doing this for animal rights reasons, just as a cleanse (which, let's face it, all famous people do).
When the singer was spotted wearing head-to-toe pizza-print—high-waisted leggings with an all-over digital print of pepperoni pie and a crop top emblazoned with mini pizzas—it suggested to those who can read between the lines that Beyoncé is not looking forward to her diet of Daiya cheese and Tofu Pups. Later in the week, her "protest" continued when she donned leather pants and a cow-hide crew neck top. British tabloid the Daily Mail even captioned one a paparazzi pic, "Are you kidding?" And today she it seems she's answered the question—and no, she's not kidding at all.
The above photo was posted on Beyoncé's Tumblr accompanied by other stills at Houston fried chicken spot Frenchy's. While there's no photographic evidence that Bey has quit the diet, she's certainly seems to be making a statement that she's not exactly excited about the prospects of a lifetime of veganism.
Tonight, her Mrs. Carter World Tour stops off in Louisville, KY where she'll perform at the KFC Yum! Center. (Yes, that is the official name of the venue.)
The irony of that is just delicious.
