We don't know yet what songs Beyoncé will perform during her headlining set at Coachella this year, but we do know she'll be in great shape for it. The music superstar shared this morning on Instagram that, with 44 days to go before the festival, she's going vegan. Queen Bey captioned a pic of what can only be described as the Beyoncé of avocado toast, "44 days until Coachella!! Vegan Time!! Click the link in my bio to join me!"
She posted two other Instas (Bey always posts in groups of three to maintain her grid integrity, duh) with the same caption, directing followers to 22 Days Nutrition, a fun-ish website where you answer a bunch of questions about cooking and then make an account and then, it seems, it gives you recipes. Beyoncé and husband Jay-Z are, of course, featured on the main page advocating for plant-based diets.
Mrs. Knowles-Carter and her husband previously went vegan for a 22-day stint back in 2013 and again in early 2015 helped create, with Marco Borges the 22-day program for others to do the same. "I am so grateful that I took the challenge and credit Marco with leading by example. He is the most energetic person I know and it's all because of his decision to live a healthy lifestyle. He came up with a great program to get people motivated to make better nutritional choices. All you have to do is try," Beyoncé said in a statement to E! News, adding "If I can do it, anyone can."
Isn't half the appeal of Beyoncé that she does things (and makes them look easy, to boot) that most of us mere mortals could only hope of ever achieving. Then again, it seems Bey is doubling up on the diet by doing for a full 44 days this time, while she's only asking her fans to consider the 22 day challenge.
Those fans may remember that Bey was slated to perform at last year's Coachella but had to postpone due to being pregnant with twins Rumi and Sir. Her "Telephone" co-star Lady Gaga took over the slot, and also used the Indio, California festival to shoot concert scenes for her upcoming remake of A Star Is Born, directed by and co-starring Bradley Cooper. Things have a way of working out!
