Jay Z continues to use public transport even though he’s rich enough to helicopter everywhere. After a gig in London this weekend, Hov was snapped taking the London Underground with pals Chris Martin (Mr. Gwyneth Paltrow and chief Coldplay warbler) and producer Timbaland.

Jigga what? The Brooklyn-born rapper-turned-multimedia mogul, looking characteristically cleaned-up in a stark white suit, will line November newsstands on the cover of Vanity Fair. Jay Z has always given good interview, but a VF cover story is another matter entirely … and if the excerpts from the piece are any indication, Young Hov delivers. The conversation runs the gamut from his years spent slinging drugs as a Bed-Stuy teenager (and the surprising way in which that experience serves to benefit him now), wooing Beyoncé, the Blue Ivy surrogacy rumors, and, perhaps most importantly of all, whether Blue prefers his music or Bey’s. Some quotes from the interview, after the jump! Keep reading »
Yesterday, Jessica told you about how Jay Z and Beyonce fired their bodyguard, Norman Oosterbroek, because he has been caught “using the family’s passports in a lewd act” while in the company of a hooker. (Oosterbroek passed away earlier this month after being Tasered by police.) The lewd act in question has not been detailed in the mainstream press, but I had my suspicions. “Did he shove them up his butt?” I asked Jessica. “I don’t know,” she replied. “Maybe the hooker rubbed one of them on her vagina,” I continued to hypothesize aloud. Well, it turns out this incident may have been written about months ago in a blind item for the gossip site Crazy Days And Nights. Back in February, CDAN posted a tip, which described Oosterbroek masturbating not just to Beyonce’s passport photo, but Blue Ivy’s as well: Keep reading »
It’s so hard to find good help these days! Beyoncé and Jay-Z had to fire former bodyguard Norman Oosterbroek last year, after he hired a sex worker while traveling with the family in Las Vegas and filmed himself “using the family’s passports in a lewd act.” Keep reading »
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.
