USA TODAY - What do you get the man who has everything on his birthday?

A new lifestyle, of course.

Rapper/mogul/multimillionaire Jay Z turns 44 today and in honor of this milestone, he's decided to try his hand at being vegan for the next three weeks.

"On December 3rd, one day before my 44th birthday I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan, or as I prefer to call it, plant-based!!" he wrote on his Life + Times blog Tuesday. "This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a 'plant-based breakfast' everyday (sic). It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought..."

He says his 44th birthday is a "spiritual" one and he likes the idea of ending his vegan journey on Christmas Day.

And, who knows what will happen when the holidays are over?

"I don't know what happens after Christmas. A semi-vegan, a full plant-based diet? Or just a spiritual and physical challenge? We'll see..."

Oh, and one more thing: "P.S. (Beyoncé) is also joining me."
