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.

Beyonce turned 33 on September 4, and her husband Jay Z paid tribute to his wife with this 33-second-long video, filled with behind-the-scenes footage from their On The Run tour. It’s adorable and I remain staunchly opposed to these ugly rumors of their demise.
Beyonce’s dad, Mathew Knowles, made an appearance on the Houston radio station 104.1 KRBE this week to make a totally unhelpful contribution to the Bey and Jay divorce rumors. He implied that the Knowles’ family drama, including Elevator-Gate, was nothing but a “Jedi Mind Trick” and that it doubled Solange’s album sales. He also hinted about a potential Destiny’s Child reunion, as if that is even remotely relevant right now. Are Bey and Jay’s marital problems one big publicity stunt, or is Mathew just trying to throw us off? At this point, neither would surprise me. There’s also the possibility that even Bey’s own father is not privy to what’s going on in that family and is just making things up off the top of his head. Thoughts? [Pop Sugar]
