jay z barneys statement

Last week, the mainstream media suddenly remembered racial profiling exists after a series of high-profile incidents in New York City. Unconnected to each other (as far as I know), several young Black people came forward about having been detained by police after shopping in department stores after they were accused of not reeeeally being able to afford the pricy items they bought.

Two were college students who were detained after they shopped at Barney’s, one for buying a Ferragamo belt and another for buying a handbag; another was actor Robert Brown from “Finding Forrester” and the TV show “Treme,” who was detained after he shopped at Macy’s. (He has subsequently filed a lawsuit against them.)  Even male supermodel Tyson Beckford spoke up about being racially profiled and “followed all the time, any time I go to a store,” including Barney’s.

In response, Barney’s agreed last week [third item] to meet with civil rights leaders to discuss the allegations of racial profiling. However, many folks were waiting on Jay Z, who sells a high-end collabortion through the store, to respond. He also became a target last week of a Change.org petition with over 16,000 signatures asking him to end his partnership with the store.

This weekend, Hova finally released a statement, although it is perhaps not what everyone would have liked to hear.  Keep reading »

Jay Z & Chris Martin Took The London Underground After A Gig

Jay Z & Chris Martin Took The London Tube Home After A Gig

Jay Z continues to use public transport even though he’s rich enough to helicopter everywhere. After a gig in London this weekend, Hov was snapped taking the London Underground with pals Chris Martin (Mr. Gwyneth Paltrow and chief Coldplay warbler) and producer Timbaland.

Shawn Carter Snags Vanity Fair Cover, Talks Bed-Stuy, Blue Ivy, And Bey

Jay Z covers the November issue of Vanity Fair

Jigga what? The Brooklyn-born rapper-turned-multimedia mogul, looking characteristically cleaned-up in a stark white suit, will line November newsstands on the cover of Vanity Fair. Jay Z has always given good interview, but a VF cover story is another matter entirely … and if the excerpts from the piece are any indication, Young Hov delivers. The conversation runs the gamut from his years spent slinging drugs as a Bed-Stuy teenager (and the surprising way in which that experience serves to benefit him now), wooing Beyoncé, the Blue Ivy surrogacy rumors, and, perhaps most importantly of all, whether Blue prefers his music or Bey’s. Some quotes from the interview, after the jump! Keep reading »

So That’s What Jay Z & Beyonce’s Bodyguard Was Doing With Their Family Passports…

Yesterday, Jessica told you about how Jay Z and Beyonce fired their bodyguard, Norman Oosterbroek, because he has been caught “using the family’s passports in a lewd act” while in the company of a hooker. (Oosterbroek passed away earlier this month after being Tasered by police.) The lewd act in question has not been detailed in the mainstream press, but I had my suspicions. “Did he shove them up his butt?” I asked Jessica. “I don’t know,” she replied. “Maybe the hooker rubbed one of them on her vagina,” I continued to hypothesize aloud. Well, it turns out this incident may have been written about months ago in a blind item for the gossip site Crazy Days And Nights. Back in February, CDAN posted a tip, which described Oosterbroek masturbating not just to Beyonce’s passport photo, but Blue Ivy’s as well: Keep reading »

Bey & Jay
Watch The Made In America Livestream!

The universe has smiled upon me and given me not one, but two chances to see Beyonce, Queen of The World, Light of My Life this summer. When I had the opportunity to see her in Brooklyn with Amelia earlier this month, I took it. “That’s cool,” I thought. “A once in a lifetime opportunity to see Bey and find proof of whether or not she’s actually human!” Sometimes life works in mysterious little ways that I will never understand. In a remarkable turn of events, I’m headed to the Made In America festival, curated by none other than Mr. Beyonce himself, Jay Z, with Beyonce Giselle Knowles headlining tonight!

Starting at 2 p.m. today, you can check out the video above to view a livestream from the festival, featuring performances from what is basically my summer jams playlist: Beyonce, Haim, 2 Chainz, Solange, A$AP Rokcy, Kendrick Lamar, Phoenix, Emeli Sandé, and a whole slew of others. If I am not raptured a second time under the spell of Beyonce’s ever-changing hair and flawless everything, I’ll be tweeting over at @TheFrisky and posting pics of whatever strikes my fancy, including but not limited to festival fashion and Blue Ivy. Join me!

Jay Z & Justin Timberlake Slow Things Down, Find New Uses For Bed Sheets In “Holy Grail” Music Video

Holy Grail!
Jay Z & Justin Timberlake Show Things Down, Find New Uses For Bed Sheets In "Holy Grail" Music Video
Watch The Video!

Since Hov only films six-hour performances with his fancy artist friends on special occasions (see: “Picasso Baby”) consider this just released video for “Holy Grail” to be the first true music video off his new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail. The video features Jay and guest vocalist Justin Timberlake wandering around aimlessly in a poorly lit, gothic warehouse of sorts, where dancers wrapped in white sheets dance to the occasionally slowed down track. Justin really went to town with the flat iron, huh? There’s a champagne glass pyramid and an inexplicable fire too. Maybe Justin got mad that “Holy Grail” is better than every song on The 20/20 Experience so he got all mad and turned into “Firestarter”? Yeah, I said it. [Facebook]

  • Former Ford model and rapper LIV (pronounced “live”) has denied rumors that she and Jay Z ever had a fling, saying he asked for her number a couple of times but they’ve never hooked up. “I wasn’t going to disrespect B like that,” LIV told RadarOnline. (Also, Solange will stare down anyone who is talking to her sister’s man, because she is awesome.) [Radar Online]
  • Usher’s five-year-old son, Usher Raymond V, has been hospitalized in the ICU after getting his arm stuck inside a pool drain. Usher V is his eldest son with ex-wife Tameka Foster, who last summer lost her 11-year-old son Kile (with another father) in another water-related accident. [People, US Weekly]
  • Miley Cyrus has announced that her upcoming album will be called Bangerz, which makes me think of that Goldie Hawn movie, “The Banger Sisters,” and makes Amelia think of the British dish “bangers and mash.” Oh, plus a song featuring Britney Spears has allegedly leaked online.
