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!

 Check out photos from their outing below and on the following pages.

Bey And Jay Release Short Film

Nowness.com

This past weekend, Beyonce and Jay Z concluded their “On The Run” Tour in Paris, France. With a surprise appearance from Nicki Minaj to Jay Z igniting pregnancy rumors and the couple professing their love to one another, The Carters’ tour’s finale ended with a “Bang,Bang.”Although the tour  is over, fans can enjoy the power couple’s silent short film trilogy called “Bang, Bang.” Set in the 1960s, the film revolves around two American outlaws who are on the run in a California desert. In the film, Beyonce is a lounge singer who falls in love and runs away with Jay Z’s character whose occupation is yet to be determined. Along the way, we see the couple visiting a diner where a man is reading a newspaper where the couple’s Most Wanted picture is on the front page. Jay Z’s character puts out his cigar in the man’s burger and the couple exits the diner in an urgent fashion.  The  two can be seen speeding off into the sunset in their Pontiac, while “To Be Continued,” appears on the screen.  The director of “Bang, Bang,” Dikayl Rimmasch, did an interview with Nowness.com  about what it was like working with music’s number one power couple. Here are highlights from his interview:

What were you immediately looking to capture with these films?
Dikayl Rimmasch: What is it about when you watch Godard’s Breathless? What is it with French new wave that everyone responds to? It is a magical moment in cinema, and the whole point of it was to not be so encumbered by the production that Hollywood and France had adopted. It was a resistance to that machine. Jay’s a New Yorker. He came up through everything and I really trusted that he would get that. I went into the shoot with that mentality.

You shot at a breakneck speed over the course of only two days. What was that process like?
DR: Just before we started shooting on the first day, I was introduced to Beyoncé and Jay Z in their trailer. They didn’t really know what I was going to do, so I said, “I’m going to shoot for five minutes. Were going to process the footage, I’ll bring it back for you to look at it and that’s basically what the footage is going to look like.” We picked a very particular, beautiful moment with Beyoncé in the mirrors, we processed the footage in a couple minutes and brought it back, and she thought it was beautiful. Jay Z came out and we shot for five minutes, with him and the cigar, and did the same thing. I was shooting with these old Russian lenses, there was no monitor, there wasn’t anyone standing behind me and we started cranking along like that.

How did you work the Bonnie and Clyde story in a new way?
DR: In my first conversation on the telephone with Jay Z he explained his concept of On the Run. He said: “We’re not trying to do this literally, it’s not that we’re Bonnie and Clyde. O. On the run from becoming a cliché. On the run from doing the same thing again.” Everything he mentioned was a level of consciousness he has for staying alive as an entertainer and as a human being. He wanted to keep it more abstract because for him it was very abstract. How do you stay new, not just to your audience but also yourself?

What did you take away from the experience?
DR: Beyoncé and Jay Z are two very intelligent, insightful and thoughtful people, in an almost low-key way. Which is how they got to where they are. They are very aware of people’s attitudes and what energy they are bringing. Once you fully realize that, then the pressure comes off and you just have to do what you’re good at.

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.

Filled with cute moments of Bey being Bey on stage and behind, we’re sure the gesture made Baddie Bey blush. Check out the short clip above and tell us what you think.

Where Was Solange During Beyoncé’s VMA Performance?

Where was Solange during Beyoncé's VMA Performance

Apega/WENN.com

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….

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
