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.

Fun fact: Jay Z apparently did away with his Jay-Z hyphen around three years ago. Of course, most of us didn’t pay attention. We liked the hyphen. We wanted it at our parties and movie outings. The rapper made the name change official in June, following the release of his latest album, Magna Carta Holy Grail. And finally, our little hyphen friend realized he’d have to look elsewhere for love.

So he did what so many have done before him, and sought out companionship via Craigslist: Keep reading »

Blue Ivy Goes To The Beach And Jay-Z Wants More Kids

As made clear by this photo of Blue Ivy and Beyoncé at the beach, Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s first crack at procreation turned out really adorable. Now 18 months old, Blue Ivy has been making more and more appearances, the best of which are showing up on Beyoncé’s official Tumblr. In a recent interview on Hot 97, DJ Angie Martinez asked Jay-Z if he would like to have more kids. His response? “Absolutely, God willing.” Jay-Z also recently founded a new sports agency, Roc Nation Sports, and he went on to joke that he wants to make his own “little basketball team” with Queen Bey. Sounds awesome, as long as he turns out to be a better parent-turned-agent than Kris Jenner. [Us Weekly]

Ebony Oshunrinde, 16-Year-Old Hip-Hop Producer
She's A Producer On Jay-Z's Album, NBD

Here are some typical 16-year-old activities: Riding in cars with boys. Sneaking sips from your parents’ liquor cabinet behind the garage. Cutting class. Buying prom dresses. Dutifully making SAT vocab flash cards in your room with the door closed. Standard stuff, really. Here’s something not so typical for a 16-year-old: producing a song on Jay-Z’s latest album. Meet Ebony Oshunrinde [Note: We've also seen her name written as Ebony.] a.k.a WondaGurl, the teenage Canadian with a producing credit on “Crown,” a slowed-down, dancehall-tinged track off Jay’s latest record, Magna Carta Holy Grail, which is out officially today. Check out the beat here and listen to her talk about how all this came about in an interview with MTV News, above.

Timeline: Every Celeb Amanda Bynes Has Called Ugly

A timeline of all the celebs that Amanda Bynes has called "ugly."

She’s at it again! Amanda Bynes has hurled her favorite insult at two more famous faces. Yesterday, she went after both Perez Hilton (who has been writing on his website about her seemingly public meltdown) and Miley Cyrus. I’m not entirely sure why she is pissed at Miley, but I think it has something to do with Amanda finding Liam Hemsworth hot. Really, there seems no rhyme or reason for Amanda calling someone “ugly.” She just can’t think of anything else to say! Here’s a timeline of all those she has hit with the “ugly” stick in 2013…
