Beyonce made a surprise appearance during Jay Z’s set at the Global Citizen Festival in NYC this weekend, and it was glorious. She joined him to sing Justin Timberlake’s vocals in “Holy Grail,” and then added her voice to “Young Forever” (in a totally on-point outfit, I might add). You’d think that being fresh off the heels of their On The Run tour would make these two sick of performing together, but it just never gets old for the rest of us. All rumors aside, I am forever obsessed with these two. They bring out all the feels every damn time. [Rolling Stone]
Go ahead, call me naive, but dammit if I’ll ever believe another rumor about the breakdown of Jayonce’s marriage again after watching HBO’s “On The Run” special on Saturday night. The love between them was palpable! It could not be denied! They flirted, they giggled, they made eyes at each other, they joked around, and they showed the audience and viewers at home a montage of the besssssssst behind-the-scenes moments, including a number of shots of darling Blue Ivy, to close out the show. While the footage won’t be anything new to those of you who were lucky enough to attend the On The Run tour, it’s now been made available to us all, so we can rejoice in the love between Beyonce and her her hype man, I mean, her husband. (Sorry, but as much as I love Jay Z, his solo performances pale in comparison to her dance routines, sets and constant costume changes.) Watch the couple perform “Young Forever”/”Halo” spliced with home movies from their real life, including a pregnancy photoshoot, a pushup contest, and many other tender, loving moments above. I will never doubt you again, Jayonce.
Divorce? C’MAN. We don’t believe you, you need more people!
Everyone was making out like Bey-Z was getting divorced once the On the Run Tour was over, and instead they’re like, “PSYCH! We’re making an album together.” It’ll be released late this year or early next year. Keep reading »
It appears that Bey and Jay were beginning to panic that the world was finally bored of wondering if ther marriage was on the rocks, so they upped the stakes by hinting at a pregnancy over the weekend. At one of the last performances of their “On The Run” tour, Jay Z changed a lyric in “Beach Is Better” from “I replace it with another one” to “pregnant with another one.” Not surprisingly, the world exploded a tiny bit with questions about a second Carter baby. Unfortunately for these two, however, the universe is kind of getting sick of their vague gossip-mongering, so the freak-out wasn’t as epic as they probably expected. But alas, yesterday Beyonce was spotted in a tweet seemingly partaking in a champagne to toast the end of the tour.

Pressure is mounting every single day against NFL commissioner Roger Goodell over his handling of Ray Rice, the former Baltimore Ravens player who assaulted his now-wife. The NFL has insisted it had never seen the brutal video in which Rice punches his then-fiancée Janay Palmer in the head, knocking her unconscious, until TMZ released it on Monday. But on Wednesday, the Associated Press confirmed that a law enforcement official said that the NFL was sent the video in April and someone there acknowledged that it had been received and viewed.
Goodell has been sharply criticized for how he punished Rice, who received only a two-game suspension by the league (before he was dropped by the Ravens this week). Only in late August did the NFL update its personal conduct policy: now players will be suspended for six games for a first offense and banned by the league for a year for a second offense.
