He Put A Ring On It…Again: Jay Z And Beyoncé Reportedly Renew Their Vows

For months there was speculation that Jay Z and Beyoncé’s relationship was possibly on the rocks after that elevator video leaked and shook up the world. But alas, it seems that all is well with the couple, because according to People, the two found time to renew their vows recently.

A source admitted to the magazine that they were going through things, like most married couples, but worked on them and are in a good place. The motive behind trying to work on everything was reportedly “for the sake of their reputations and their 2-year-old daughter.” Not necessarily in that order I hope…

“They did have major problems. But they worked it out and they’ve renewed their vows.”

And not only that, but the source says that the couple is “looking for a place” in Paris, the same place where they were engaged, conceived Blue Ivy and finished their joint On The Run tour. They’ve checked out properties near the River Seine and near Elysee Palace. The couple have been snapped by paparazzi moving about in Paris checking out the pricey real estate.

One other thing the source confirmed that the couple is doing together is a joint album, which isn’t a surprise since it seems like the natural next step after performing together for months.

Glad to see these two were able to work on whatever issues they had, but do you believe there were any really big issues threatening to separate them in the first place? As crazy Mathew Knowles once said:

“From experience, there’s a tour going on. So you sometimes have to ignite that tour. It’s called a Jedi mind trick. The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot…Everyone’s talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange’s album sales went up 200%!”

Whatever was going on, we’re just glad to hear of two people in Hollywood staying together. It’s becoming all too rare these days…

It looks like the Carter family is looking for a new place to call home in Paris. Beyoncé, Jay Z and Blue Ivy were photographed browsing homes near Elysee Palace on Thursday, Daily Mail reports. The trio has spent quite a bit of time in the capital of France since Jay and Bey wrapped their On the Run tour.

This, of course, pokes several holes in ever-present rumors about the couple getting a divorce. Recently, the pair revealed that the French city holds a lot of significance in their relationship.

“We love Paris,” Jay told the Parisian audience at the conclusion of the On the Run Tour . “It’s special to us because we got engaged here and this is where baby Blue was conceived.”

It’s unclear exactly how much time the Carters intend to spend in Paris, but it doesn’t appear that they plan on making it their permanent home anytime soon. According to BET, they’ve also been checking out an $85 million home in Beverly Hills, California.

Considering that Paris is where Jay and Kanye worked on their Watch the Throne album, perhaps it will also be where Jay and Bey will put together their collaborative album that is reportedly in the works.

Over the weekend, there were reports that Jay Z announced that he and Beyoncé are expecting their second child during the last On The Run Tour stop. The way the story was told, Jay was performing “Beach Is Better” when he reportedly got a little creative and switched up the lyrics saying, “Cause she pregnant another one,” while gripping Bey’s rumored, forming baby bump.

The pair have yet to publicly acknowledge the rumors and this of course, is not the first time that Beyoncé was rumored to be pregnant or anything. But it also wouldn’t be the first time they delivered pregnancy news in front of a live audience either. Nevertheless, the pair do appear to be enjoying some family time now that the tour is over. Mama Bey, Papa Jay and Baby Blue were recently photographed heading to a lunch date at the Nolita Restaurant in Paris, France.

The photos don’t do much to confirm or refute pregnancy rumors, but it’s always refreshing to see them out as a trio enjoying family time. Blue is blossoming into a big girl right before our very eyes!

Is Beyonce Pregnant With Baby Number 2?

Last night, during the On The Run Tour in Paris featuring Jay-z and Beyonce, the Carters dropped a huge hint! Beyonce may be pregnant with baby number 2!

While performing Beach is Better, Jay-z switched up the lyrics in the song to say “Cause she pregnant another one.”

Wait, what?!? Did Jay-z pull a Kanye? Well according to another rumor, he did.

“For the last month, Jay has been fiercely protective of her, just like he was when she was expecting Blue Ivy. He’s been doing everything he can to ensure that Bey is in a stress-free bubble. He’s informed their entire entourage that they need to use relaxed voices, mellow lighting and listen to only soft music, and he’s said that all of the food Beyoncé eats should be organic. He’s really doing his best to make sure that she’s as comfortable and healthy as possible. At one point, she was ordered a glass of champagne backstage to celebrate the tour’s success, but she politely declined and even rubbed her belly, maybe unconsciously. She hasn’t had a sip of alcohol since.”

Do you think Beyonce is pregnant again? Or is it just another rumor?

Watch Blue Ivy Talk To Her Mommy Backstage At The MTV Awards

Watch Blue Ivy Talk To Her Mommy Backstage At The MTV Awards

If you ask me, the best part of Beyoncé’s MTV performance came when she was singing to her daughter and when that same little girl took the stage and told her mother she did a good job.

Now, Beyoncé is letting us know about all the hard work that went into creating, crafting and editing that performance. MTV was tardy on the staging, Bey decided an hour before showtime that she wanted her dancers painted white and the singer and her troupe only got to practice their 15 minute routine once on stage.

That’s interesting but I’m sharing this video for the words Blue shared with her mother once she stopped waving to adoring fans on stage. And it seems that Mama Tina’s boo Richard Lawson makes an appearance around the 3:48 mark.

Check out the MTV Behind The Scenes video below.

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.

“Don’t Mess With My Nephew”: Tamera Mowry-Housley Claps Back At Internet Trolls Who Criticize Cree And Blue Ivy’s Hair

Earlier in the month we told you about Tia Mowry having to check people on her Instagram page because they were talking ill of her son, Cree. The actress put topknots in the boy’s hair for an outing and people criticized her and the child, claiming that the style was too feminine. Her response was this:

“I am proud to have a SON that embraces his natural hair :). Hair length does not define your sex. Last I checked a pen*s and a vag*na does. Pick up a book, educate yourself, and embrace cultures outside of your own and maybe you will see that there are PLENTY of MEN wearing top knots and MEN with long hair. Here’s a shout out to all the moms who have boys and girls with natural hair! Live ON!”

Well, Tamera Mowry-Housley arrived a the Fox 2014 Emmy Award Nominee Celebration in LA after the Emmy Awards and was asked about attacks on Cree, as well as comments people make about Blue Ivy and children’s hair in general. She didn’t seem to be aware of comments made about her nephew’s hair or that Tia responded to them, but when Hip Hollywood asked her about it, she was upset about it, as expected:

“She did? I do know that Tia always feels like maybe people are always talking about her son or something like that. Wow…his hair.

I think people need to leave children alone. Who does that? You know what, it tells you a lot about them, than what they’re talking about. If you’re really going to go online and talk about a kid, and talk about like Blue Ivy…don’t mess with my nephew…that just tells me a lot about your character. That is the most stupidest thing I have ever heard. Wow. People should be able to do whatever they want to do with their child.”

Say that Tamera! Check out Mowry’s comments below and share your thoughts:

9 Reasons Beyoncé Will No Longer Rock With BET

BET done messed up now. Watching their award show every year, it’s a bit clear that the big named stars are starting to show up increasingly less as they cross over and make it with the mainstream. 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.

My Hair Looks Like Blue Ivy’s And I Think It’s Beautiful

So… I promised myself that I was over the endless hair articles that clog up the Internet daily. But after witnessing the public thrashing of Blue Ivy’s locks after her unbearably cute appearance at last Sunday’s VMAs. I couldn’t resist chiming in on a topic that has been exhaustingly rehashed for no good reason.

First of all, Blue Ivy is an adorable girl who has super star parents. She is a celebrity by default and so she will always be judged based on her looks. It is pathetically sad that she has to endure the wrath of ignorance before she is even able to construct a complete sentence. But thanks to the luxury of social media, we are susceptible to the fiery nature of naysayers and inconceivably rude people who take pleasure in mocking or degrading innocent victims.

Blue Ivy can’t seem to catch a break when it comes to her appearance. The jokes about her looking more like Jay-Z than Beyonce erupted the same day her official photos were released. Who cares what she looks like? The girl is wealthier than a nation right now and she will not have to rely on her beauty in order to live a pretty fulfilling life. Be that as it may, I happen to think she is the cutest thing ever! And yes, I am aware that since North West entered the world, the comparisons have been relentless. Particularly since one of them has that “good hair” that we all salivate over, and the other has, well, something that looks like our worst nightmare.

It might be your nightmare but it’s my reality. Yes, my hair looks like Blue Ivy’s. It’s thick, natural, and gorgeously wild. No, I don’t like to pile on a plethora of products in order to achieve that “shine” because it does nothing but clog up pores and cause my scalp to itch, which unleashes itching sessions that I can quite frankly, do without. I also don’t believe in combing or brushing my hair needlessly, especially when all I have to do is pick apart my curls and fluff accordingly.

Everyone is griping about how “dry” and “unkempt” natural hair tends to be when it is left it’s own devices. I think I know what the real issue is and you are not going to like it. It is clear that we will never be completely accepting of the tresses that we blessed with. Our hair is unique and comes in various textures, which means that there is no regimen that will work for everyone. None of us has the right to project our insecurities on someone who doesn’t seem to live up to our standard of the “perfect mane”.  Just because you wash your hair every other day doesn’t mean I need to do the same. And if you love the way Miss Jessie’s products bring out your curls, that’s awesome for you, but I don’t get those same results.

There is nothing wrong with Blue Ivy’s natural hair, but there is something wrong with the way black women react to it. You seem to be so convinced that you would do a better job. I am sure this is because she represents something that you are uncomfortable with. Almost like an embarrassing representation of our true selves. That’s why so many of you are determined to hide behind your weaves that cost more than your rent. You can’t bear to expose your that part of you that not only leaves you vulnerable but potentially makes life just a little more complicated.

For those of us, who don’t mind being natural, we embrace the complexities and revel in the freedom that it brings. I am not saying that natural is the only way to go, in fact, I am contemplating getting a weave in a couple of weeks. Hair is an accessory and I treat it as such. I also never tell anyone how to manage their mane, nor do I make mothers feel inadequate about the way they care for their daughter’s tresses.

Blue Ivy’s hair looks like mine, in fact it may even look and feel better than mine. I am offended for her and for myself, when I read and hear the nasty comments floating around. In case you are clueless, let me help you out – natural hair is hair that is devoid of chemical treatments. Aside from moisturizers and gels, your hair is basically riding the wave of it’s own God-given texture. Blue Ivy’s hair looks fits that description and so does mine. So get off her back, and pick a more appropriate topic to discuss. Like maybe how we can endeavor to send the right message to our little girls about self-esteem and self-acceptance.

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.

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

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
