That’s been the rumor for a few weeks, but now E! Online has gone as far as to confirm the news, saying that multiples sources have told them it’s true — Blue Ivy is going to be a big sister! Now, I’ll hold off on the mazels until we get official confirmation from Bey and husband Jay-Z, because I don’t want to jinx anything. After all, Jayonce and their brethren are among my primary passions in life, so while I normally get kind of annoyed/jealous when celebs in my age bracket or younger have multiple kids before I have one, I make an exception for my favorite celebrity super couple. Anyway, the countdown, ahem, has started for the Knowles-Carter family to confirm or deny this news! I’ll start chilling the champagne and titanium straws! [E! Online]
Beyonce sure has a lot going on lately (and, um, all the time): a massive tour, a controversial trip to Cuba, a rumored second pregnancy… But regardless of how much Queen Bey has on her plate, she never misses a beat when it comes to looking flawless, whether she’s rolling in to a Nets game or a red carpet event. Mrs. Carter’s flame-embellished gown at the Met Ball was a polarizing choice, but her makeup for the evening? Universally gorgeous. A few tips and tricks, after the jump… Keep reading »
Pause your Spotify and listen to Kelly Rowland’s new song “Dirty Laundry” (after the jump) — not only is it intense, but it’s really good. She sings about how hard it was for her to watch her “sister” Beyoncé get A+++-list famous while Kelly was “going through some bullshit,” mostly, it seems, an abusive relationship: ”Meanwhile this ni**a puttin’ his hands on me, swear y’all don’t know the half of this industry. She sings about lying to her mother and her friends about the abusive relationship, classically being isolated from help. “Kinda lucky I was in her shadow / phone call from my sister, what’s the matter / she said ‘oh no, you gotta leave’ / I’m on the kitchen floor, he took the keys / I was mad at everybody, I mean everybody, her her her her everybody,” she sings, adding that it took five years to finally get her life together. “I was trapped in his house … I was battered / He hit the window like it was me, until it shattered,” she sings. “He told me nobody love you but me, not your mama, not your daddy, and especially not B. He turned me against my sister, I missed you.” Keep reading »
Remember when Beyonce and Jay-Z went to Cuba for their fifth wedding anniversary and everyone got all up in arms about? Well, even though the United States has for decades upheld laws that basically tell Americans not to travel to Cuba, Beyonce says she was still shocked by the amount of flack she received for going there.
She told ABC News on Monday:
You know, it was such a beautiful trip. I met some incredible children. I visited some incredible entrepreneurs. And it was really, it was really educational for me. I learned so much about so many people and the country.

Beyonce may have banned the average concert shutterbug from snapping pics during her Mrs. Carter Show Tour, but that doesn’t mean she didn’t hire a photographer of her own and painstakingly edit his film down to only the most flattering shots of her at her most Sasha Fierce to release for public consumption. Click onward to see the pics Beyonce’s actually wants you to see of her performing. Flawless! Not an Incredible Hulk moment in sight!
As you might expect, Beyonce’s recent revealed tour rider requests are hilarious. Titanium straws? Practical! Hand-carved ice balls! Amazing. But my favorite Sasha Fierce necessity has to be red toilet paper. Why? Again, whyyyyy? And where might someone buy red TP? Oh, not to worry, I did a little research, and it turns out a company called Renova makes not only crimson red toilet paper, but TP in a variety of bright colors. So now, if you’d like, you can wipe your ass like Beyonce. And it will only cost you $5.99 a roll! I can only imagine how fierce my vag and butt will feel afterwards. [Renova Shop]
It’s finally here: the Andre 3000 and Beyoncé cover of Amy Winehouse’s song “Back To Black” for the “Great Gatsby” soundtrack.
I’m going to say something controversial: I don’t like it. It’s creepy. Imma let you finish, Andre 3000, but Beyoncé should have just sang the whole song herself.
But judge for yourself! Listen after the jump… Keep reading »
Gwyneth Paltrow generally leaves a bad taste in my mouth — a taste eerily reminiscent of wilted kale — but I am capable of appreciating aspects of her personality that are actually kind of endearing. Like the solid effort she put into the embarrassing task of imitating famous rappers like Jay-Z, Kanye West and Macklemore, on “Ellen” yesterday. Her Beyonce isn’t bad either. But that Chris Martin impression needs work.
Baby Blue hath emerged from her castle and has deigned to bestow her royal side eye upon us commoners! No, but seriously, Beyonce and Jay-Z brought the beloved future President of the United States (Beyonce says the job is hers if she wants it) out to lunch with them and, yup, she’s as cute as ever. Click through for more…
Remember when Beyonce performed at the Super Bowl and a whole mess of photos of her grimacing mid-dance move and/or high-note hit the web? Yeah, well Beyonce didn’t like that, to the point where her publicist actually requested that certain websites take them down. And now she’s taking steps to make sure an unattractive photo of herself during a performance never becomes a meme again by banning professional photographers from her Mrs. Carter Show Tour. Bey has hired her own photog team and will have final approval over which pics are released. This bums me out. I’m endlessly amused by a imperfectly-timed action shot. It’s a wonderful reminder that pop stars are human and look like they’re taking a painful dump when busting a move too. [Fstoppers]
