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.

There’s another one to add to the Beyoncé, Jay Z Rumor Mill: Are the couple planning a joint album? According to Los Angeles DJ Skee, it’s happening. And it will come out soon– like, within the next few months. Yes, you can gasp.

It wouldn’t be the first time Jay Z partnered with another artists to make an album. The 44-year-old has collaborated with Roc-A-Fella artists, R Kelly and Kanye West in the past. As a former Destiny’s Child member, Bey has experience working closely with others, but this album would be a lot more personal.

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!

“We’re On The Run From Everything” Bey And Jay Release Short Film “Bang, Bang” Part One

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.

Today may be Friday, but according to the Internet, yesterday most definitely was not Thursday. That’s because no matter the year or day of the week, to the Beyhive, September 4 is and will always be known as Bey Day.

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.
