A trip to Las Vegas normally conjures up images of decadence and debauchery.
But not for rapper Jay-Z, who managed to maintain his 22-day vegan cleanse challenge even while partying in Sin City.
The 44-year-old star was in Vegas on Friday to celebrate his Magna Carter tour with a swanky party thrown at the exclusive Hakkasan restaurant and nightclub.
Wearing a vibrant purple suit replete with black bow tie, the star was seen laughing and joking with fellow guests. who included Juan Perez and Shawn Costner.
The music mogul also paid tribute to his wife Beyonce’s surprise new album, which released without fanfare on Thursday.
Jay Z and his friends apparently raised their champagne glasses when the DJ played the pair’s new song Drunk In Love.
Beyonce shocked fans – and the music industry – when she released the record on iTunes, claiming she wanted to speak ‘directly to her fans with no filter.’
Jay-Z – whose real name Shawn Carter – decided to undertake the diet challenge on his 44th birthday, which was on December 3.
Beyonce joined in on the cleanse and the famous couple were spotted enjoying a meal at the popular vegan restaurant Crossroads in West Hollywood last week.
Jay Z revealed that he and his wife were inspired by a close friend to give up animal food products until December 25.
The Holy Grail hitmaker wrote about the diet challenge on his Life and Times Blog: ‘Psychologists have said it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. On the 22nd day, you’ve found the way.’
‘This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a plant-based breakfast everyday. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought.’
‘It just feels right! So you can call it a spiritual and physical cleanse. I will post my progress. Any professional vegans out there that have any great food spots please help out! Please!’ he wrote.
