It goes without saying that Jay-Z, Beyonce and Blue Ivy make up one of the cutest families in all of entertainment. Not only do you have the seemingly fairytale love story between HOVA and Queen Bey, but they have an absolutely precious little lady in the form of Blue Ivy.

Since we can’t get enough of the Carters and with a fresh 12 months of adorableness ahead of us, Madame Noire takes a look back at some of this family’s cutest moments.

#StayWoke: Beyoncé’s Lawyers Threaten Etsy With Lawsuit Because Of A Coffee Mug

Beyoncé's Lawyers Threaten


A rather creative business person decided to develop a set of merchandise (mainly coffee mugs) with the word “Feyoncé.” Playing off of Beyoncé’s name and the word “fiancé,” it would be the perfect coffee mug for newly engaged Beyoncé stans. Unfortunately, if you thought you could purchase the Feyoncé mug because your man put a ring on it, think again!

According to TMZ, Yoncé’s lawyers sent a letter to Etsy, asking them to take the items offline or expect a lawsuit. Etsy quickly bowed down to Queen Bey’s demands. However, if you do a quick Google search you can purchase the Feyoncé mugs before you walk down the aisle to from other websites.

Will you be purchasing a “Feyoncé” mug before the Beygency makes it obsolete?

Michelle Williams Checks Mike Huckabee Over Nasty Remarks About Beyoncé’s Sexual Image: “I Was Definitely Offended”

Michelle Williams has been quite busy defending her friend and former bandmate Beyoncé Knowles these days. Just last week she had to silence rumors that the “7/11” singer is pregnant with her second child. Now, she’s going toe-to-toe with politician Mike Huckabee over his stance that Beyoncé, with the assistance of her husband Jay Z, is exploiting herself as a “sex object,” which quickly made headlines after the release of his new book, God, Guns, Grits and Gravy.

During a recent appearance on “The View,” Huckabee continued his argument that Beyonce’s sexually explicit lyrics from her 2013 self-titled album are inappropriate and that they are preparing 12-year-old’s for the stripper pole.

“Beyoncé is amazing and interestingly, I’ve had so much uproar over half a page in my book. I say she’s the most amazing singer, great set of pipes, unbelievable dancer and she doesn’t need to do songs like ‘Partition’ and ‘Drunk in Love’ in order to be an effective and an amazing talent,” he argued. “Because she’s such a role model for so many young women, this is what I said. And it was a simple illustration, half a page in a 270 page book and I’m thinking, ‘My gosh, that’s all I’ve heard about this week.'”

Michelle responded:

“As someone who has definitely come up in a group with her, I just feel like that album and those songs is that one moment where she decided to probably do some songs she’s always wanted to do to shed that ‘I’m a good girl…’ She had some freedom and she owned it and she took it, so I was definitely offended — I’m not the Carter spokesperson.”

She went on to make it clear that while she respects Huckabee, she was deeply offended by his words.

“To hear some of those comments that you said, I thought were very, very, very low. I respect you and this is not to throw mud and tomatoes.”

On Being A “MILF”: How Much Is Too Much When You’re A Mom?

I could not imagine being the child of a celebrity, let alone a child with a mother who is as hot as Amber Rose, Blac Chyna or Kim Kardashian. These women have all the right measurements, from their busts, to their waists, to their bottoms, and their figures seem to make any man’s knees weak. Just read the creepy things their male followers have to say on Instagram when they pose in little to nothing.

And while they leave very little to the imagination, often to a lot of praise, let us all remember that those hot bods are also very hot moms.

The new wave of moms want to have it all – baby, snapback body and all the attention that comes with the latter. There are no better “milfs” to be inspired by these days than Amber, Kim K., Chyna, and even Bey and J Lo. These women grace the cover of magazines just months if not weeks after delivering their bundles of joy, and are proud to make your jaw drop when they pop up in your Instagram feed. It’s easy to forget that those bodies people are ogling are those of mothers and wives.

They do say that if you’ve got it, flaunt it. And yes, it’s nice to be proud of your body after a baby, but where do we draw the line?

It is all a measure of taste. Amber Rose nearly shattered the Internet – or at least Instagram – with her recent barely there monokini and topless photo shoots. While sitting under falling water and holding her breasts could be seen as artistic, posing in stilettos and black thread that barely covers her goods? Not so much. The photos were tasteless. There was nothing stylized or glamorous or high fashion about it – it was simply Amber Rose putting her boobs and a** on full display. Again.

On the contrary, Jennifer Lopez’s latest Complex cover is gorgeous. The pop star is rocking that plunging bodysuit! And while we all are well aware of Jenny From The Block’s assets, we are not bombarded with images of it. Instead, she does just enough to keep us wondering what her diet and workout regimen is, but scales it back enough to keep things classy.

Don’t get me wrong, women do not have to sacrifice low necklines and high slits to be a good “mom.” We are sexy and confident creatures who possess the ability to look great while taking care of our responsibilities and being great parents. But not every photo shoot of your newly taut tummy and bodacious bottom needs to be shared with these E-streets.

This whole “milf” thing is getting a little out of control, because in this digital age, what we put out there is there forever. The claim to fame of these women may have been their bodacious bodies, but every Instagram shot doesn’t need to illicit a hard-on. Their beauty stretches far beyond that. And if I can be honest, tooting it, popping it and then flashing it one minute before sharing a picture of your child’s cutest moment the very next is a bit too much…

Not Here For It: Solange Gives Paps The Death Face When They Intrude On Family Outing

Solange Gives Paps The Death Face

Most of us, as little girls, had fleeting thoughts or even dreams of what it must be like to be famous. We think about the glitz and glam, the clothes, the luxury and even the flashing lights. But our fantasies stop short of considering the fact that there may come a time when we can’t turn those lights off.

There’s a downside to everything and we saw that this weekend with the Knowles family when they tried to enjoy a day at Griffith Park in Los Angeles with their children. While Beyoncé is known for flashing a smile to the paparazzi in the midst of some pretty unpleasant situations, Solange doesn’t seem to be one to hide her true feelings. In fact, they generally seem to make an appearance on her face.

And that’s what happened this weekend while the paps were lurking.

Check out the images and Solange’s response to the intrusion below.

A rare music video has resurfaced on the internet this weekend, showing Beyonce and early Destiny’s Child singing backup for Houston rapper Lil’ O.

The video for Lil’ O’s “Can’t Stop” was released in 1997, around the same time Destiny’s Child started making waves with their first single “No, No, No.”

Caption This Pic Of Beyoncé Being A Little Nosy At A Brooklyn Nets Game

“Mhmmm…he thinks he’s slick…”

That’s what I was thinking Beyoncé was saying to herself when I saw this picture of her and her hubby, sitting courtside to watch the Nets play the Rockets in Brooklyn on Monday night. But Bey Bey wasn’t watching the game. Who else has given their guy’s phone the cat eye from far away? That’s not to say he’s doing anything wrong, but if your phone comes into my line of vision, I just might look real hard without touching…Jokes!

Bey and Jay strolled into the Barclay’s Center, dressed in matching black, ready to watch the Nets lose to the Rockets (the Nets don’t have the best record this season). But Beyoncé was all smiles either way, as photogs snapped away at her, trying to figure out whether or not she is with child after posting that suspicious Instagram picture over the weekend of herself on the beach, covered in sand.





It’s hard to tell what you’re seeing since she’s wearing high-waisted jeans, but you never know with Beyoncé. Check out more pictures of the pair at the game here and a handful more on the next page:

“Just Stop It” Michelle Williams Says Beyoncé Is Not Pregnant

Michelle Williams Says Beyoncé Is Not Pregnant

Today, Michelle Williams, served as a co-host on ABC’s “The View.” And it just so happens that yesterday, Beyoncé had the internets, and even major broadcast channels, trying to break the news of her second pregnancy. So it was only right that Rosie O’Donnell try to get the tea from her Bey Bey’s former group member.

Judging from the Instagram post, this weekend, it was certainly looking like Beyoncé was dropping hints.

But today, on “The View,” Michelle shut those rumors down.

“You know when she was pregnant, people said that she wasn’t pregnant and you know, it’s just no truth to it. Sorry!” 

Then Michelle went on to explain how the “bump” is where Beyoncé’s knees should be and all this other jazz.

And then concluded: “All of these allusions, just stop it, stop it. Too many things.” 

People so desperately want Beyoncé to be pregnant that they’ve been analyzing Michelle’s body language–the closed eyes, avoiding eye contact and general fidgeting–suggesting that she’s lying or doesn’t quite know herself what’s going on.

Personally, I’m going to take her word for it until I get confirmation directly from Beyoncé’s mouth–or a more clear indicator on her social media pages.

Did Beyonce Just Announce Her Second Pregnancy?

Beyonce may or may not have just announced her second pregnancy to the world.

The songstress has social media in a frenzy after posting a suspicious picture of herself on Instagram. The photo features Bey buried under a ton of sand with an extra bump on her stomach. Of course, the Beyhive is convinced she’s pregnant. However, we’re not sure. Two weeks ago, she posted photos of her and Jay drinking champagne.

Nonetheless, we’re placing Queen Bey on baby bump watch. We think Blue Ivy would make a great big sister.
