jay z barneys statement

Last week, the mainstream media suddenly remembered racial profiling exists after a series of high-profile incidents in New York City. Unconnected to each other (as far as I know), several young Black people came forward about having been detained by police after shopping in department stores after they were accused of not reeeeally being able to afford the pricy items they bought.

Two were college students who were detained after they shopped at Barney’s, one for buying a Ferragamo belt and another for buying a handbag; another was actor Robert Brown from “Finding Forrester” and the TV show “Treme,” who was detained after he shopped at Macy’s. (He has subsequently filed a lawsuit against them.)  Even male supermodel Tyson Beckford spoke up about being racially profiled and “followed all the time, any time I go to a store,” including Barney’s.

In response, Barney’s agreed last week [third item] to meet with civil rights leaders to discuss the allegations of racial profiling. However, many folks were waiting on Jay Z, who sells a high-end collabortion through the store, to respond. He also became a target last week of a Change.org petition with over 16,000 signatures asking him to end his partnership with the store.

This weekend, Hova finally released a statement, although it is perhaps not what everyone would have liked to hear.  Keep reading »

Jay Z & Chris Martin Took The London Underground After A Gig

Jay Z & Chris Martin Took The London Tube Home After A Gig

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.

Shawn Carter Snags Vanity Fair Cover, Talks Bed-Stuy, Blue Ivy, And Bey

Jay Z covers the November issue of Vanity Fair

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 »

So That’s What Jay Z & Beyonce’s Bodyguard Was Doing With Their Family Passports…

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 »
