Beyoncé Covers CR Fashion Book

Kim Kardashian is probably somewhere shaking her fists at the heavens. She just can’t keep up with that Beyoncé beast. While we’re sure she was ecstatic to have North West featured in the pages of Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book, she might be feeling some type of way this morning.

Because Beyoncé’s spread for the same book just dropped and it’s hot.

The spread, photographed by Pierre Debusschere, stars the performer extraordinaire wearing Commes Des Garcons, Prada, Givenchy and Celine. And of course the photos are stunning. But beyond that, Beyoncé shared a poem about what she wishes for her daughter Blue Ivy. The words tell a story but even if they didn’t folks are so thirsty to see what Bey has to say about anything in her personal life, that I’m sure it’ll have people snatching it off the shelves.

Check out a couple of the images from the spread and the poem from the book on the following pages.

Where Was Solange During Beyoncé’s VMA Performance?

Where was Solange during Beyoncé's VMA Performance

During Sunday’s Video Music Awards, Beyoncé took the stage to perform her entire visual album before accepting the Video Vanguard Award. When she did, we all saw Jay Z and Blue cheering her on from the audience, alongside them Kelly Rowland and Jay’s best friend, Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith. During the red carpet pre-show, Solange was spotted looking fierce in a pant suit from H&M, but by the time her big sister took the stage, she wasn’t sitting with or near Rowland. Some (aka, MediaTakeOut) tried to speculate that the rapper and singer were avoiding each other, that Solo was “banned” from coming in and even went as far as to speculate that there was a squabble between Solo, Jay and Beyoncé that caused the “Losing You” singer to go missing from Bey’s big moment.

However, a source has come forward to say that that’s not the case.

Talking to Hollywood Life, a source says there wasn’t any drama at all. Solange actually stayed with Beyoncé backstage for most of the show.

“Solange hung out backstage with her sister in her dressing room. She saw everyone and was backstage at the bar and saw Nicki and Taylor.”

In cased you missed it, according to Nicki Minaj, Beyoncé did visit her in her dressing room to bestow upon her a diamond “Flawless” necklace, so Solo probably encountered her during that moment.

As for later, Solange did allegedly leave way before Bey picked up her award, as she headed out to complete work on her new solo project. But before then, she was by her sister’s side as she prepared for her big performance.

“She had to leave because she is busy finishing up her album. She was talking to everyone and she had a great time. She was there for a little bit…they aren’t feuding.”

And trust, Solange isn’t stressed. The day of the VMAs she snapped this pic with her boo, director Alan Ferguson, with the caption, “Can’t touch the ground….even if I wanted to….

It’s quite sad, actually. And while we might not have understood their absence before, these days Beyoncé has every reason not to show up…like ever again. Here’s why.

This past Sunday, Blue Ivy captured our hearts as she watched her mom perform her entire visual album at the 2014 MTV VMAs.

While her mother sang her hit song “Flawless,” Blue was seen dancing in a metallic shift dress on Jay Z’s lap. Besides being captivated with her adorable dance moves, Blue’s dress caught the attention of parents everywhere.

According to Black Celeb Kids, the retailers of Blue’s $350 Bonpoint dress say it’s currently sold out. Yonce and Jay also paired Blue’s dress with a matching bow and Kenneth Cole ballet flats.

BET’s “106 & Park” To Go On Week-Long Hiatus After Blue Ivy Hair Comments

"106 & Park" To Go On Week-Long Hiatus

As someone so eloquently wrote on Karrueche’s Instagram page, when you rattle the BeyHive, you will get stung.

And after the inexcusable, completely tasteless comment one of the writers wrote on the teleprompter about Blue Ivy’s hair, the BeyHive erupted in full force. Most of the ire, unfortunately, was misdirected at Karrueche Tran but eventually, Stephen Hill stepped forward to apologize, on behalf of the network.

And now, word on the street is that “106 & Park” has been suspended for the rest of week.

Though some say the show was on a planned hiatus for this time frame, others are suggesting that the joke about Blue’s hair had something–if not everything to do with it.

If you’re a bit unsure what to think, let the show’s co-host Bow Wow ease your mind.

Well if that is indeed so, it couldn’t come at a better time, because they certainly need to regroup and get their ish together.

Plus, rumor has it that the producer of that particular show has been fired.

Meanwhile, poor Karrueche has been receiving death threats. Because many interpreted  the comments as her own. She took to Instagram to apologize on behalf of herself and tell everyone else to chill the eff out.

See what she had to say:

Past two days have been extremely draining.. As I geared up for a big day for myself – hosting a live show.. I never expected things to turn out this way.. I apologize to any and everyone who felt offended in any way by the comments made by BET executed through me.. I would never disrespect anyone’s child in any way and anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE Beyoncé. My comments have been in complete shambles.. yes I am human too and yes I do make mistakes.. But all this negativity and death wishes are quite a lot.. Definitely a lesson learned from here forth.. Again, on behalf of MYSELF, my sincerest apologies ❤️ #BeyHive

The MTV Video Music Awards is a pretty popular ceremony that brings some of the best entertainers in the music game. Each year, artists put on stylish (or questionable outfits) and unleash a few surprises, patiently waiting to see whether or not they will take home a coveted Moon Man. Obviously this is no Grammy but still held with pretty high regard.

Here’s a look at some notable winners from last night’s event who are making major waves throughout the music industry — along with folks who got shut out. Are you surprised by any winners or losers?

The 2014 VMAs came on and had people talking in no time flat on Twitter–and for good reason! There were wardrobe malfunctions, love connections, and of course, Queen Bey was scheduled to put on a historic performance. All in all…we were a little underwhelmed by the end of the night, but here are 10 things about the big show that did have us talking. What about you?

Questionable Wardrobe Choices

From Nicki’s booty popping in a tiny two-piece to the rapper wearing a dress that wouldn’t zip while performing “Bang Bang,” a lot of skin was exposed during the show. And did anybody else peep Amber Rose’s revealing gown!? Her husband, Wiz Khalifa, rocked a shirt that brought awareness to teen suicide, but Rose’s ensemble distracted from that big time…

“Go Mommy!” Beyoncé, Jay Z And Blue Share A Sweet Moment As She Picks Up Video Vanguard Award At VMAs

So it was the moment a lot of people were waiting and watching for! Beyoncé performed and picked up her Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. With MTV lauding it early as a “historic” performance, expectations were super high, especially since there were rumors that Yoncé would hit the stage with Nicki Minaj to perform the “Flawless” remix. However, the singer kept it safe. She performed her entire visual album on the stage (with a short snippet of “Superpower”) and accepted the Vanguard Award from her husband and daughter, Blue Ivy.

She opened with “Mine” and ended with “XO,” serenading her fans who have helped her get so far in her career. She also had a sweet moment there when she sang “Blue” with images flashing of her family and Blue from birth until now. And how can we forget Bey busting a move with a crowd of background dancers to “Flawless”?

But really that was it.

I don’t know if Minaj’s wardrobe malfunction got her cut at the last minute, but Yoncé kept it simple. Nothing too risque (there were flashes of booty from the singer and her background dancers, but that was about it), nothing too exciting. It was just right I guess you could say.

In the end, the singer picked up her award from her husband, who she shared a kiss with. Throughout her performance he sat in the front row next to Kelly Rowland with Blue in his lap.

Blue also came up to clap for her mom and looked cute as can be, especially when she was caught saying “Go mommy!” Yes, Beyoncé shut the show down…literally. Once she picked up her award the whole thing ended abruptly. But it was a great performance from an artist very deserving of her award.

But what did you think? Check out her performance below and share your thoughts.

Nicki Minaj Opens VMAs With Booty-Poppin’ “Anaconda” Performance, But Has An Awkward Wardrobe Malfunction…

Nicki

As the VMAs began, Ariana Grande opened the show with her new song “Break Free,” and at one point, Minaj was able to take over the main stage to perform “Anaconda” for the first time. In a sequin green two-piece, Minaj showcased her curves (“he can tell I ain’t missin’ no meals”) and did a whole lot of popping that famous backside for the audience (including a very bewildered Rita Ora).

Eventually, Jessie J hopped on stage to start “Bang Bang,” and in a new revealing outfit, Grande joined her. Only person left to join in on the fun was Nicki Minaj. But when the MC did finally hit the stage, things went a tad bit left. It seems that Minaj was pushed out on stage before she had the chance to zip up her skin-tight black gown, and eventually we all realized that something went horribly wrong with the zipper and she actually couldn’t zip it up at all. So for another minute or so, Minaj walked around the stage uncomfortably trying to keep her lower regions covered and holding the dress on with her other hand plastered on her chest. Meanwhile, Jessie J and Grande walked around her singing their little hearts out. I know Minaj was too happy when that whole thing was over with…But no worries, because she’ll have a chance to make up for all that. She’s reportedly set to take the stage with Usher and might even pop up with Beyoncé later in the show. We shall see!

But you check out the malfunction and her performance of “Anaconda” below.
