Beyoncé’s Latest Announcement Is Anything But Flawless

We all have that coworker or friend who won’t shut the f up about whatever diet or food trend they are currently following. They’ll never miss an opportunity to tell you they can’t eat the dairy featured in your company dinner’s meal, or that they can’t participate in ‘Bagel Wednesday’ because they have a very severe gluten allergy.

Now, you can add Beyoncé to that list of people who will literally tell anyone who will listen what they can and can’t eat. Only, in Beyoncé's case, she actually told everyone, because she announced her vegan diet on air during “Good Morning America” yesterday morning.

During her big “announcement,” Beyoncé told the world about her vegan diet, The 22-Day Revolution, and explained it was responsible for her weight loss. Since Beyonce’s affiliation for The 22-Day Revolution is nothing new, it’s a little bit weird she’s coming out to say this now…again. In fact, Beyoncé promoted this diet when it was made available to common folks like us back in February, disclosing her partnership with nutritionist and exercise physiologist Marco Borges. The  three minute and fifty second video, which was pre-taped, BTW, doesn’t tell us anything new — except that maybe Beyonce is getting some high quality dollars to endorse this project.

In the clip, Beyoncé explains:

“I am not naturally the thinnest. I have curves. I'm proud of my curves and I have struggled since a young age with diets and finding something that actually works, actually keeps the weight off, has been difficult for me.”

While Beyoncé raves about how the meal plan helped with her “weight loss,” she actually never says how much weight she ended up losing. Plus, the “big announcement” was kind of bogus. So you can imagine fans are pretty upset. Perhaps, with Kim K’s new baby news, Beyoncé thought she needed to make a splash in the headlines — but this seems like a pretty terrible way to do it.

We still love you, Beyoncé. And you look amazing. But we’re not so sure about your vegan diet.
