It's the big 4-4 for Jay Z, which means it's time to get healthier than ever!
And, he and his Bey-utifiul wife Beyonce are going HARD!
In an attempt to get healthier and ring in the new year with a cleansed system, Jay & Bey have decided to undergo a 22-day challenge where they'll go vegan! Yep, that's right!
In a passionate blog post, Jay wrote about their desire to make the big change, revealing:
At Thursday night's Oklahoma City Thunder game, a 33-year old fan by the name of Brad Brucker won a whopping $20,000 by hitting a shot from half court at halftime!
But the money and the glory of having an arena of 18,000 cheering for you seemed like nothing compared to what happened next!
The REAL prize came when he got a huge congrats from Jay Z and Beyoncé who just happened to be sitting court side for the game!
Talk about a brush with greatness!
We're sure it really would have made Brad's night even better if Hova would have brushed the dirt off his shoulders, but we're guessing a nice handshake sufficed! LOLz!
Ch-ch-check out Brad's big moment (above)!
Though Jay Z has decided to go ahead with his Barneys collection following all the racial profiling controversy, prominent figures in the African-American community have criticized his decision.
Andre Leon Talley, former editor-at-large for Vogue, recently said:
Is there anything more romantic then watching 10 sweaty, humongous men run up and down a court while trying to throw an orange ball through a hoop??
Actually, we can probably think of a few things. But it certainly seems to be doing the trick for Jay Z and Beyoncé!
The superstar couple made their way out to the midwest and sat court side at Chesapeake Energy Arena as the Los Angeles Clippers took on the Oklahoma City Thunder!
The duo took in some quality basketball action, but they also seemed to get distracted as they could barely keep their eyes off each other! But seriously, can you blame them?
We gotta admit, we're more used to seeing Hova sitting court side at the Barclays Center to cheer for his beloved Brooklyn Nets, but it looks like he's trying to see other teams now that he's selling his stake in the team!
It's ok, Jay. Breaking up is never easy, but you'll find love elsewhere! LOLz!

Wife of the year!
Beyoncé is helping her hubby Jay Z promote his new holiday collaboration with Barneys by posing in some of the covetable pieces. If anyone can make people wanna buy this stuff, it's Queen Bey!
The singer wears a black and white Moncler leather sleeve varsity jacket with leggings and a Just Don leather Brooklyn cap that covers up her new platinum hair color, looking pensive against a white background.
In case you're wondering, that jacket will set you back about $2,295 while the cap retails for $875. But can you really put a price on something endorsed by Hov and a bright blonde Bey???
Plus, 100% of the proceeds from the sales will go to benefit the Shawn Carter Foundation, which provides scholarships for disadvantaged youths. Spending money for a good cause is the BEST!
Barneys released the following statement regarding the collection:
Jay Z takes racial profiling VERY seriously!!
And now that Barneys is facing lawsuits and discontent from the general public after their employees were accused of racial profiling, HOVA is in NO mood to celebrate!
Bey's boo was all set to party with the Barneys elite Wednesday night, but now that the heat has reached its height, a rep from Barneys has now stated:
When Jay Z’s fans created a petition to end his relationship with Barneys after multiple accounts of the store’s racism, we bet they never expected him to get THIS involved!
Major props to HOVA for sticking up for his followers!
After his initial response to complaints and lawsuits directed toward Barneys and the NYPD when they tried to arrest black customers leaving a store with their purchases, the rapper posted an update on the situation to Life + Times last week.
He eloquently wrote:
