'Tis the season … to go vegan? Well, that's what's happening in Queen Bey's household, anyway.
During a time of year when most of us mortals overdose on honey hams, cheese plates, and other artery-clogging delights, Beyoncé and Jay Z have decided to embrace a plant-based diet. Oh, and it was Jay Z's idea.
The day before his 44th, birthday, the rapper revealed that he was beginning a 22-day challenge to go completely vegan. On his blog, he explained that he had already begun dabbling in the eco-friendly fare "a few months back when a good friend and vegan" encouraged him to try a plant-based breakfast everyday.
"It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought…" he muses.
Still, the jump from some greens for breakfast to greens all the time is a pretty big one (especially during the holidays), so why is Blue Ivy's daddy deciding to take the plunge now?

It was certainly a #GivingTuesday at the UNICEF Snowflake Ball on Tuesday evening at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City, where stars turned out in droves to support the charity's "belief in zero" efforts to end the preventable deaths of children.
UNICEF Ambassadors Angie Harmon, Danny Glover, Téa Leoni, and former ambassador Katie Couric were all in attendance, as well as Katy Perry, Christina Ricci, Bryant Gumbel, Audrey Hepburn's son Luca Dotti, Jenna Bush Hager and Henry Hager, Mark Consuelos, Kyle MacLachlan, Tyson Chandler, and more.
Perry, who was named UNICEF's newest Goodwill Ambassador at the event, stunned in a burgundy, velvet Naeem Khan gown on the red carpet, but changed into a glittering gold Michael Kors number to perform her hit single "Unconditionally," which she said was inspired by a UNICEF trip she took to Madagascar.

It's rare enough that celebrities ever step out in the same dress twice, but apparently Keira Knightley isn't shy about recycling her fashion — especially when it comes to her wedding dress! The 28-year-old actress stepped out at the Serious Fun London Gala Tuesday night in a gorgeous light pink Chanel Haute Couture number, but it wasn't the first time we've seen it; the brunette beauty actually donned the lovely gown to marry her sweetheart, musician James Righton, in the South of France back in May.
But Keira's actually three times a lady when it comes to the frilly frock. After all, if you think wearing your wedding dress after you get hitched is awesome, how about wearing that same gown years before the big day? Like, say, back in 2008?
Check out this video to see how Keira accessorized the dress each time, and be sure to tune in to "omg! Insider" on TV tonight for all the latest in entertainment news.

Things are getting back to normal for Hugh Jackman after his cancer scare.
The Australian actor made his first red carpet appearance since he announced he had a basal cell carcinoma, which is the most common form of skin cancer, removed from his nose last month. At the David Lynch Foundation gala in Manhattan on Tuesday, the 45-year-old heartthrob appeared in great spirits as he hit the red carpet with his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, but his nose was clearly still healing from his procedure.
Jackman wouldn't have missed the event though. The charitable star is helping the non-profit raise funds to provide meditation training to 1,000 veterans and first responders in NYC who suffer from post-traumatic stress. He's a proponent of the stress-reducing practice, which he has said changed his life.

Be wary of any stories you read about Paul Walker's 15-year-old daughter Meadow. They're most likely not true.
For starters, she wasn't present when the "Fast and the Furious" actor, 40, died as the passenger in a fiery car crash just outside of Los Angeles. She also hasn't posted any teary farewells to her father on Twitter or Facebook or any other website.
A new post on the late actor's official Facebook page shoots down some of the false reports popping up by the minute about the daughter he shares with ex-girlfriend Rebecca McBrain.

When Jennifer Hudson brought home the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 2007 for her role as Effie White in "Dreamgirls," it was a big deal! Not only was she one of only a few actors to win an Oscar for a debut role, but she was — and is still — the only "American Idol" contestant to win the prestigious award. But unlike her peers who had long dreamed of taking home Oscar gold, Jennifer was blissfully unaware of the significance of her big win.
The 32-year-old Chicago native opened up to Net-a-Porter's The Edit magazine about the big moment, saying, "I didn't know what the Oscars was. Where we come from, we don't know anything about that world. If you see it on TV, it's like, 'Oh, people in fancy suits and ties.'"
Now the former Disney Cruise Line employee has an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, a Grammy and more than a million album sales on her impressive resume, but she still can't believe her good fortune. Check out the vid to hear what Jennifer had to say about working with stars that she’s admired , and be sure to tune in to "omg! Insider" on TV tonight for the latest in entertainment news.

There's nothing fishy about Gillian Anderson's love of sea life.
The "X-Files" alum is so devoted to the underwater world that she stripped bare for a campaign to stop the destruction of the ocean. But it's quite a photo because she uses an eel — yes, an eel! — to cover up her lady bits.
The slithery, slimy creature is looped around the 45-year-old's neck for the unforgettable photo op. She's holding its tail in one hand and raising its head, which is eerily positioned directly at the camera, with the other. The expression on the actress's lightly made up face is a serious one.
The photo project was done for the organization Fishlove and included some other U.K.-based celebrities posing in the buff with critters ranging from bass fish to sharks. Its goal is to raise awareness of how overfishing is destroying the oceans.

Christian Slater is a married man again.
The "Heathers" actor, 44, married longtime girlfriend Brittany Ann Lopez, 26, on Monday at a courthouse in Coral Gables, Florida.
"It will be good, intimate and small and family members. It will be nice," he told the magazine at ABC's upfronts in May.
"Honestly, you gotta get a planner and do all that, but we will get it organized," he continued. "We had a big engagement party on the 31st of December and it was nice, it was like a New Year's and we had all the family come, 200 people, so it kind of already feels like we did the wedding, so we are just going to do a nice backyard situation."

Natalie Portman stars alongside Chris Hemsworth in "Thor: The Dark World," and the two have many scenes together throughout the film, but remember that steamy love scene between them in the end credits?
As it turns out, the scene wasn't actually between the co-stars, and Natalie wasn't really the lucky lady smooching it up with the hunky Australian!
The Oscar-winning actress revealed to the New York Daily News that it was really his wife, Elsa Pataky, who was the one puckering up for the big screen in the credits.
"It was for reshoots (after the film was finished) and he was working in Hong Kong and I couldn't get there because I was working on my own film," said Natalie. "And so they put his wife in my wig and costume, that's why it was so passionate. It was such a perfect solution, wasn't it..." she told the mag.
Check out this video to see the steamy smooch, and be sure to tune in to "omg! Insider" on TV tonight for all the latest in entertainment news.

Congratulations are in order for Kim Fields!
The actress and director, who played the roller-skating Tootie Ramsey on the long-running '80s sitcom "The Facts of Life," welcomed her second child into the world Tuesday … at the age of 44.
Kim gave birth to Quincy Xavier Morgan in Atlanta at 10:30 a.m. ET. The bundle of joy weighed in at 8 pounds, 8 ounces. It's the actress and director's second child with husband Christopher L. Morgan. They are also proud parents to 6-year-old son Sebastian.
"We are so blessed and grateful to God for this newest gift to our family," the couple said in a written statement.
Fields has been a consistent showbiz presence since "The Facts of Life" went off the air in 1988. She starred for five years in the '90s Fox sitcom "Living Single," and is currently a successful episodic TV director, having helmed several episodes of "Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns" and "Tyler Perry's House of Payne." And she's even recorded several songs as a R&B singer.
