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:
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.
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.
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
During a recent “106 And Park” appearance, Karrueche Tran made a distasteful joke about Blue Ivy’s hair, which many took offense to. The joke came during a segment where the hosts highlighted the top six things Blue Ivy thought about at the MTV VMAs.
“I really did wake up like this because my parents never comb my hair,” Karrueche said.
“Sorry Blue! I love you!” she added.
In no time, the Bey Hive and Black Twitter began chiming in about the comment.
How Karrueche gonna throw shade at a toddler? You got nice hair and still get cheated on every 3 weeks.

karrueche came for blue ivy on 106 & park? molly, you in danger, girl. @karrueche

Karrueche eventually took to Twitter to defend herself and to confirm what most folks already assumed: the joke was included in the script by BET’s writers.
Now y’all know I LOVE me some Beyoncé and Blue Ivy! I didn’t write this script y’all lol
— Karrueche Tran (@karrueche) August 25, 2014
I am definitely team #BeyHive ❤️
— Karrueche Tran (@karrueche) August 25, 2014
The clarification helped her case, but not much.
Karrueche is a verified idiot though. We already knew this.
— oklahomo (@crissles) August 25, 2014
Both BET & Karrueche are wrong for coming at Blue. How is a BLACK network making fun of a BLACK child for wearing her hair the way it grows?
— no. (@MermaidMillan) August 26, 2014
Do you think BET set Karrueche up for the okey doke or should she have skipped over the joke?
“Go Mommy!” Beyoncé, Jay Z And Blue Share A Sweet Moment As She Picks Up Video Vanguard Award At VMAs
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.
In bizarre news, a New York woman by the name of Tina Seales has filed a maternity suit against hip hop power couple Jay Z and Beyoncé.
According to the Daily Mail, Tina is alleging to be Blue Ivy’s real mother. In court documents, she claims that she was “previously associated” with the Carters. She is requesting that the courts “verify whether she is the biological mother.”
As if that isn’t strange enough, Tina also filed a suit in the past claiming to be the mother of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s daughter, North West, Michael Jackson’s three children and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s son, Prince George. Of course, her latest suit against the Carters attracted a bit more attention than the others. For years, there have been rumors that Beyoncé’s pregnancy was a big front to cover up that Blue was actually being carried by a surrogate.
“It wasn’t hurtful, it was just crazy,” Bey told People of the rumors a couple of years ago. “[I thought] ‘Where did they come up with this?’”
“I thought it was very unfair and very cruel that someone would think that someone would be that diabolical to keep up a charade like that for nine months,” added Bey’s mom, Tina. “As a mother it was painful for me to hear the crazy rumors. And I even had people ask me, which was so ridiculous.”
In the case of Seals claiming to the mother of North West, a judge tossed it a couple of weeks ago because a judge found that the “factual contentions are clearly baseless” and that her claims were “the product of delusion or fantasy.” We’re guessing the same will be done in the case of baby Blue.
People are wild.

The petition for the Carters to comb Blue Ivy’s hair has been making news rounds since last month. But that’s not the only out-there complaint that fans have lobbed at their least-favorite stars. From getting Tyler Perry to stop making movies to getting Ciara to stop singing, these are the most ridiculous celebrity petitions that have ever been on file.
“Stop Ciara From Singing”
Ciara and her fans have had a rocky relationship for a while now, but this petition to get Ciara to stop singing seems over the top:
I just signed the following petition addressed to: 2012 STOP CIARA FROM MAKING MUSIC CAMPAIGN.
YOU TIRED OF BACK BENDS? SIGN!
YOU TIRED OF FLOPS? SIGN!
YOU TIRED OF CORNROWS? SIGN!
YOU TIRED OF THIN ASHY VOCALS? SIGN!
We told you last week about the foolishness that was the petition made by a woman named Jasmine, basically getting everyone riled up to encourage Beyoncé and Jay Z to comb Blue Ivy’s hair after she was spotted with her parents, hair out and about. A few people from Syleena Johnson (cracking some jokes that went left) to India Arie (who basically told people they needed to do better), all commented on the state of the child’s hair. As always, Jay Z and Beyoncé had no response to the comments or the petition, and kept it stepping (they have a tour to prepare so they’re seemingly unbothered). Jay was recently seen out with Blue at a museum in NYC, and the little one looked adorable in a floral dress with her topknot, which was adorned with a tiny crown. She’s starting to look more and more like Beyoncé every day, right? Check out another shot of the cutie and her coif with her father below.
