“Oh! My nose is like [mimics radar] ‘doot, doot, doot’! I smell everything! It enhances it. If it smells bad, I smell it! My husband’s fragrance, his one that I always love, I hate right now.”
—Beyoncé has revealed that she is loving pregnancy. More specifically, she said that she is happier than she has ever been. But there is one downside. Her enhanced sense of smell. Apparently, it has her hating Jay-Z’s cologne? Luckily, though, she says she still enjoys her new scent, Pulse. [Hello Beautiful]
Just because she’s preggos with Jay-Z’s baby doesn’t mean that Beyonce gets out of appearing at her mama’s fashion show. Oh no, Ms. Tina Knowles walked the runway with daughter B in tow in support of Knowles’ House of Dereon line during London Fashion Week over the weekend. B’s mom, if you’ll remember, is responsible for some of Destiny’s Child most, uh, iconic costuming during the early years of their career (who could forget the outfits in Fashionista] Keep reading »
Beyonce announced her pregnancy just over a week ago and already the hype about Babyonce is more than most of us receive in a lifetime … and its life hasn’t even begun. With Beyonce as a mother andJay-Z as a father, speculations are already being made about the child’s ability to sing/dance/eventually take over the world. What if the kid comes out plain or not-so-bright? What if it wants to be a teacher or a construction worker and not a pop star? Even if it chooses to go into the entertainment biz, could it ever live up to the greatness of its parents? Too much pressure! A lifetime of therapy just waiting to happen! It almost makes one grateful to have come from humble beginnings. Almost. Click through to see some more celebrity spawns that were born with big shoes to fill and how they’ve managed so far.
Because what else do you get the fetus who has everything?
According to this Twitter account, Beyonce swallowed a Blackberry, and now her child has access to the outside world. And of course, what else would you do with your very first smartphone besides connect to the world through 140 characters or less?
Here are a few of the more poignant things the fetus has said so far. Read more… Keep reading »
Stinky poop and dollar signs come flying out of Beyoncé‘s baby’s butt in this new Taiwanese animation video about the pop star’s newly announced pregnancy. Let’s be honest, that’s not too far from the truth. [YouTube] Keep reading »
The MTV Video Music Awards are kind of hilarious, considering the complete lack of videos played on MTV these days. But at least we can count on one thing from them: insane fashion. Everyone has carte blanche to come dressed up as a pile of trash, or a geisha robot or whatever–and this year, that’s exactly what happened. After the jump, check out how Beyonce, Katy Perry and all the rest fared.
Announcing you’re pregnant on the cover of People
? That’s for amateurs. If you’re Beyonce, you tell the world your womb is implanted with Jay-Z’s seed by unbuttoning your sequined jacket after performing “Love on Top,” at the MTV VMAs, rubbing your belly, and dramatically telling the crowd, “I want you to feel the love that’s growing inside me.” Just a little while before, Beyonce walked the red carpet in a voluminous caftan and reportedly told a reporter that she was expecting. Her rep confirmed the news, while husband Jay-Z looked positively gleeful as he cheered on her performance. I love these two and am psyched they’re makin’ babies together. Mazel tov! [Huffington Post

“What I’ve learned from [Beyoncé] is similar to what I learned from Michael Jackson—and I know that’s blasphemy to compare the two because Mike was such an innovator, but I think she’s like the second coming. Y’know, the hard work and dedication that she puts into her shows. It just makes you want to work harder at your own craft. She’s like a machine.”
—Jay-Z talks about his new joint album with Kanye West, Watch The Throne, and in the process explains the many ways Beyoncé has inspired him. Sure, it’s strange to draw a mental connection between your wife and Michael Jackson, but I hear what he’s saying. [ONTD] Keep reading »
“I love Gaga. I mean, if she didn’t perform and she wasn’t a singer, just as a human being I love her to death. But on top of it, she is the most talented pop star right now, and I’m so happy for her. It’s just really inspiring to see someone who just creates their own destiny and comes up with their own looks and writes their own songs and choreographs and is in control and is not contrived. If you took away every bit of costume and she just sat in front of a piano, she would still tear it down. She’s just that talented, and she deserves it all. And I’m just happy to work with her. I love her.”
– Beyonce shares her respect for her “Telephone” and “Videophone” collaborator, Lady Gaga. See, there can be more than one diva in the house. [PrideSource] Keep reading »
Imagine you’re a fresh-faced lil’ college student at FIT, and Beyonce’s — yes, Beyonce’s — creative director, Jenke-Ahmed Tailly, gets in touch and says the Divine Miss B wants to wear one of your creations in the folds of her next album. That’s what just happened to Lleah Rae, whose yellow ruffled dress Beyonce sports in the gatefold of her newest record 4. In fact, Bey chose a selection of lesser known designers for the deluxe version of her album, including 27-year-old designer Maxime Simoens and Dutch designer Jan Taminiau. Bey’s apparently moved on from her mom Tina’s House of Deréon line (thank God) and is focused on designers who create unique, quality pieces. Explains Tailly: “Each song really has a different personality so we decided to do the cover like an editorial for a magazine, with each song having its own style.” Digging it!
