Beyoncé Appears To Have Removed Her "IV" Tattoo On Her Ring Finger
  • Beyoncé appears to have removed the “IV” tattoo on her ring finger, a matching tattoo she and Jay Z got to symbolize their marriage. But recent paparazzi pics have shown a red, raw scar in the place where the tattoo once was, plus an Instagram pic from awhile back shows a bandage on that finger. WHAT IS GOING ON? [Yahoo]
  • Meanwhile, Bey has also posted four pictures of herself and her sister Solange on Instagram — days after people noticed Solange deleted all the ones of her. [Just Jared]
  • Further complicating matters, Jay Z and Solange were spotted shopping for women’s jewelry together at a high-end women’s jewelry store. Perhaps they’re buying Beyonce a “we’re sorry” present? [TMZ]
  • Justin Bieber is being investigated by the LAPD for attempted robbery after allegedly taking a cell phone out of a woman’s purse after she tried to take pictures of him.Roll eyes. [TMZ] Keep reading »

  • WE HAVE AN ANSWER! Sort of. Maybe. The New York Daily News is claiming Solange Knowles drunkenly attacked Jay Z in the elevator of The Standard Hotel because she was upset her friends couldn’t get into an after-party. The source claims that two of Solange’s non-famous friends, who weren’t invited to the Met Ball, used Jay Z’s name to try to get in. “They wouldn’t leave and kept name dropping Jay Z. They were pretending they were guests of his and not hers,” the source dished. “Management went to Julius (Beyonce’s bodyguard) and said there’s a problem.” Jay reportedly told Solange not to use his name and she got upset, only getting more irate when Jay wanted to go to Rihanna’s after-party by himself while Beyoncé headed home.

Some Thoughts On That Jay Z/Solange Brawl, Female-On-Male Violence & Fights Between Siblings

Some Thoughts On That Jay Z/Solange Brawl, Female-On-Male Violence & Fights Between Siblings

Like, oh, basically everyone everywhere, I’ve been totally consumed with thoughts about the fight between Jay Z and Solange Knowles following the Met Ball a few weeks ago, security footage of which was leaked online yesterday. I’m a fangirl of both Knowles sisters, and my belief in everlasting love is tied maybe a little too closely to the marriage between Jay and Beyonce, so as a Carter Family obsessive, this story is impossible to ignore. Given that Beyonce and Jay Z’s life is presented so flawlessly to the public — even their past troubles have been presented after the fact with a glossy veneer of hindsight and lessons learned — the elevator brawl between Beyonce’s husband and her little sister Solange reveals a rather large chink in the Carter Family armor, provoking loads of understandable questions and speculation.

Chances are good that we’ll never know the details, and even if anyone involved does explain what went down, it’ll be carefully worded. To be very, very clear though: Solange Knowles violently attacking Jay Z, for any reason, is not okay. It’s assault. How this will play out legally, now that the tape has been released to the public and thus to the attention of authorities, remains to be seen.

Whenever I do hear about a woman being violent towards a man, I’m forced to confront my own history of such behavior. I can count the number of times where I’ve “snapped” to such a degree on less than two hands, only three of which actually resulted in physical contact. They all involved men I was very close to and love/loved. (I’ve never been in a physical fight with another woman and very rarely verbally fight with other women.) Keep reading »

Beyoncé Posts Prayer On Instagram While Solange Deletes All Pics Of Bey

  • Two days after the scuffle between Jay Z and Solange following the Met Ball, Beyoncé posted a prayer on Instagram, asking God, “Give me discernment and strength to separate myself from anyone who is not a good influence.” Meanwhile, Solange has deleted all but one of the photos on her Instagram account of her sister. What is going on in the Carter-Knowles family? [SheKnows]
  • Solange’s attack on Jay Z in an elevator wasn’t an isolated outburst at the Met Ball: she reportedly yelled at a group of people, including designer Rachel Roy, during an after party and Beyonce “got in the middle of it.” No one has a clue was Solange was yelling about, though. [US Weekly]
  • Also, Solange is reportedly known to have angry tantrums. [US Weekly] Keep reading »

The Standard Hotel Is Pissed That Solange/Jay Z Assault Video Leaked

  • The Standard Hotel in NYC is livid that surveillance footage of Solange Knowles attacking her brother-in-law Jay Z leaked to TMZ. In a statement, a representative for the Standard said, “We are investigating with the utmost urgency the circumstances surrounding the situation and, as is our customary practice, will discipline and prosecute the individuals involved to our fullest capacity.” [BuzzFeed]
  • If the Solange/Jay video didn’t break the Internet, the Vox.com article asking “What is Solange/Who is Solange/What is a Solange?” certainly did. [Vox]
  • The rapper Andre “Christ Bearer” Johnson explained why he tried to cut off his own penis last month. I know you are not going to believe this but drugs were involved. [Gawker] Keep reading »

Solange Loses It

3pm: This post has been updated to include TMZ’s extended version of the video after the jump.

All is not as well as it seems in Beyoncé’s world. In a surveillance video obtained by TMZ, her sister Solange Knowles is seen punching and kicking Jay Z inside an elevator allegedly at some point after the Met Ball last week. The video, shot from above, shows Jay in his white tux entering the elevator at the Standard Hotel, with Solange getting up in his face and taking swings until she’s pulled away by someone who appears to be a body guard. It looks like Beyoncé is behind Jay and comes to stand between them at some point. It’s clear that the in-laws are exchanging heated words about something, but all the violence on the tape is coming from Solange. Damn, I would love to know what that argument was about. Sigh. Families. Keep reading »

Beyonce & Jay Z Officially Announce 16-Date “On The Run” Tour

Beyonce And Jay Z Officially Announce 16-Date On The Run Tour

Where Brooklyn at? No, literally, where Brooklyn at? Today, Beyonce and Jay Z officially announced their 16-date co-headlining “On The Run” tour, which kicks off in Miami on June 25, but my excitement was tempered by the realization that Jayonce would be skipping what I assumed would be a guaranteed stop — Brooklyn, New York, specifically at the Jay Z-owned Barclays Center. Instead, the closest show for us rabid followers of music’s King and Queen will be in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Wah. Anyway, this isn’t just about me and how the hell I can justify spending bank money on tickets for a show in another state. This is about you and how far you’ll have to run to see the “On The Run” tour. See all 16 stops after the jump! Pre-sale tickets go on sale tomorrow at 8 a.m.! [I Am Beyonce] Keep reading »

Beyoncé & Jay Z Are Renting Kim & Kanye’s Honeymoon Yacht Instead Of Going To The Wedding

  • Beyoncé and Jay Z are reportedly staying away from Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding because they don’t want to appear on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” (and you know Kim would be all “Get Beyoncé in that shot. Get Beyoncé in that shot!“). But they’re making it up to K & K by renting out a yacht for their honeymoon. And Jay Z is throwing Kanye his bachelor party, of course. [Daily Mail UK]
  • In other Jay news, he accused a producer/former studio intern named Chauncey Mahan of extortion for holding onto millions of dollars worth of recordings since 2002, for which he’s now asking for a $100,000 storage fee. Mahan called Jay “a stupid kid smoking blunts.” [Page SixTMZ]
  • Laura Prepon shot down rumors that she’s dating Tom Cruise. “When people don’t know, they just make stuff up. Apparently I’m dating Tom Cruise right now,” she said. “Apparently he doesn’t want me doing the show because I portray a lesbian and I’m a Scientologist. This is false. Where are they even getting this stuff? It’s unbelievable to me.” [SheKnows] Keep reading »

Kanye West Remixes Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love”

Kanye West Remixes Beyonce's "Drunk In Love"

I love each and every song on Beyonce’s recent self-titled album, but I have a special soft spot for “Drunk In Love,” her collab with husband Jay Z. I mean, it’s sexy, fun to dance to and hilarious. Surfboart? “Graining on that wood”? “Her breasteses are my breakfastes”? While the song is perfect as is, that didn’t stop Kanye West from trying to make it better by remixing the song with some of his own lyrical flourishes. Take a listen after the jump and let me know what you think in the comments! Keep reading »
