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.

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.
The internet may have told you that yesterday little Blue Ivy Carter turned 3. Of course there were hyperbolic comments made about her being heir to the throne, slideshows featuring Blue’s most adorable public moments, even some really entertaining illustrations, like this one:
But one of the greatest birthday tributes came Blue Blue’s auntie Solange.
But I’ll save the best for last. Before that, Beyoncé posted a picture of Blue Ivy’s birthday set up, complete with an ice sculpture. Check it out.
See what Solange had to say about her niece below.
It’s almost too much to handle right?
This image of Beyoncé, Blue Ivy and Jay Z seems sweet and wholesome enough: The singer and her family are having a memorable moment, petting a baby tiger while visiting FantaSea in Phuket, Thailand (even though Jay doesn’t seem too sure about the big cat…). But this photo is not bringing a smile to the face of Dr. Jan Schmidt-Burbach and the people of the World Animal Protection organization.
Dr. Schmidt-Burbach said in a statement on the WAP website:
“A tiger is not a plaything. Their health and well-being should not be sacrificed for a photo opportunity. When you look behind the scenes, holiday snaps like these support an industry that relies on animal cruelty.
Many tourists unwittingly contribute to the suffering of wild animals like these. They’re simply not aware that their ‘once in a lifetime’ photo means a lifetime of misery for that animal.”
Dr. Schmidt-Burbach added this, in a statement, which was obtained by Billboard:
“I urge anyone who is thinking about posing with a wild animal to watch World Animal Protection’s video to learn the facts before they book their next vacation. Once people know the truth, they can take action to end this cruelty by choosing to see wild animals in the wild where they belong.”
“The wee-baby elephant that Beyonce has so happily perched herself upon, was likely taken from his mother and forced to endure a six-month ‘breaking’ period during which time he was locked in a small enclosure and continuously beaten by his mahouts (trainers). It is not unlikely that this poor elephant will spend everyday[sic] after this one carrying other tourists, exposed to the extreme heat and weather of Phuket, knowing little but a life of pain and misery.”
But honestly, Beyoncé and Jay Z probably aren’t worried about such criticism, because today is Blue Ivy’s third birthday, and they’re focused on making it a special one:

Blue Ivy continues to steal our hearts. Yesterday, the heir to the Carter throne was spotted at JFK airport’s security checkpoint with her superstar parents, Yoncé and Hov, before jetting off to Dubai for their Holiday vacation.
Blue was seen wearing a fly print coat, Ugg boots and playing tag with her Dad. In the video below, Blue is seen running away from Jay Z as he eagerly runs down the airplane ramp to catch her. Mama Bey ran behind the two– in 5-inch heels no less — making it an adorable family affair.
Catch the Carters cute family moment below, along with pictures of them shopping in Dubai.

She’s months shy of turning three, and we still can’t get enough of Blue Ivy! The adorable tot was spotted in New York City with her famous mom, Beyoncé, on Tuesday. She rocked an adorable curly fro, a leather biker jacket and the cutest little tu-tu skirt.
The mommy-daughter duo were photographed together just hours before Bey attended the TopShop Topman Dinner Celebration to acknowledge the opening of TopShop’s New York City flagship store. Tuesday was also a pretty exciting day for Blue’s “auntie” Kelly Rowland, who gave birth to baby boy Titan Jewell Witherspoon.
We cannot wait for photos of Blue interacting with her new cousin; however, that probably won’t be for a while. But in the meantime, enjoy these photos of Blue in her all black ensemble.

I wonder if the Carters watch “Black-ish”? If you watched this week’s Halloween episode, you saw the Dre and his family went as the Jackson 5. Earlier today, we reported that Beyoncé dressed as Janet Jackson from her Rhythm Nation days. But Blue got the better costume. She was a young Michael Jackson, complete with the shiny glove, boots and a curl. And it’s just too adorable. Check out a couple of pictures of her stepping out with her parents last night.
Apparently, Jay Z didn’t want to join in on all the family theme. Later that evening, he was seen wearing a mask on the back of his head but it wasn’t Jackson family related. Bey and Blue got the best ones. Though it would have been pretty hilarious to see him attempt the Jermaine Jackson spray painted hair.
As smart at that little Blue Ivy is, I wouldn’t be surprised if she specially asked to be Michael Jackson. Either way she’s adorable. And I peep the little twist hanging out, just like Michael used to have that single curl hanging down in his face. Blue isn’t the only celebrity baby whose debuted her Halloween costume already, this morning Kim Kardashian shared a few pics of North West. Check them out on the next page.
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!
