Life is just one big comfy stroll in the park for the Carter family, huh?
Beyonce, Jay Z, and Blue Ivy were spotted at Phoenix Park in Dublin yesterday while the singer took a break from her wildly successful Mrs. Carter Tour stop in Ireland and we have to say they look quite peaceful.
We’re guessing Bey and Jay had the grounds shut down because these three are the only ones we see at the park besides a body guard and a few more stragglers who we assume are handlers. Pics from the Carters’ entire time in Dublin hints that the Irish are far less celeb-obsessed than Americans. Even walking around in a Mrs. Carter Tour jacket inside of a Mediterranean restaurant in Coppinger Row, only one person can be seen trying to snap pics of Jay Z, who looks rather cool, calm, and collected after dining out with his wife and daughter. We’re sure they prefer this atmosphere much better than the constant snap of paparazzi flashes they receive every time they leave the house here in the states, although Blue Ivy still looks like she’s not having any of it lol
Check out pics of Beyonce, Blue Ivy, and Jay enjoying their time in Dublin on the next few pages and see how much Blue’s growing. She’s almost getting to big even for Jay Z to carry!
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding day is drawing closer and according to reports, the couple is still trying to get their wedding party in order. A few months back, rumors began circulating that Beyoncé declined Kim’s offer to be a bridesmaid—a rumor which Kim’s camp vehemently denied. But now, there are additional rumors floating around about the Carters and Kimye’s wedding party.
Sources tell the Daily Star that Kanye asked Jay to be his best man in the upcoming ceremony. Initially, insiders say Jay proudly accepted the best man title, but only under the condition that he would not appear on camera for “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.”
“Jay is Kanye’s closest friend so he wants him to be best man. Jay agreed initially but had one condition – under no circumstances can there be any reality TV shows filming him, his wife, Beyoncé, or daughter, Blue Ivy, during the ceremony.”
“The thought of popping up in KUWTK mortifies Beyoncé,” the source continued. “She purposefully keeps herself away from trashy TV and isn’t prepared to lower her standards for anyone, or any occasion.”
The source goes on to imply that the ceremony will be filmed for KUWTK, as E! executives are doing everything they can to seal the deal.
“Bosses at E! are desperate to get the nuptials on air, and will pay millions to make it happen.”
As a result, insiders say Jay and Bey will not be participating. Of course, this is all speculation and nothing has been confirmed as of yet. I suppose we’ll have to wait until the big day to see what’s really going down.
In this day and age where celebs and everyday folks take to their social media pages to share every little detail of their lives, there are still some stars who like to keep their private lives very private.
Cassie and Diddy
Rumor had it Diddy and Cassie were dating well before they were ever photographed together. Caught up in a love triangle with Cassie and his children’s mother Kim Porter, Diddy snuck around with the “Me & U” singer showing up at the same events but making sure to never arrive or leave together. Recently the two have been more open about their relationship in public and on social media. Diddy has posted photos professing his love for Cassie and last month sparked rumors when he put up a picture of an engagement ring with the caption, “Baby do you like it? I just want to get you wat you Like!” he added. “I just wanna Mk you smile #takeDat!”

Who said that Blue Ivy only likes to mean mug people with cameras?
Looking just like the perfect fusion of Beyoncé and Jay Z, Blue Ivy was snapped being the adorable toddler she is. The photo made its way from a fan site into the rest of the Internet, and now, we’ve got our hands on it! The pic is presumed to be from late last year when Blue and Bey were snapped playing backstage at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, especially since the toddler is wearing the same exact outfit from those pictures (aside from the cute headband), which were posted on Beyonce’s tumblr page.
She’s just too cute and this busy little one is growing up so fast!
Doesn’t it seem like Kanye West is always in the news? If not because of a controversial statement, it is usually because of a business deal. He just revealed that popular music video director Hype Williams, who directed the film Belly, will direct the film version West’s Yeezus. (Trailer here.) Now comes word that his DONDA will partner with Jay Z’s Roc Nation.
DONDA, which West describes as a multi-discipline design and content company, has inked a deal with Roc Nation to manage all DONDA Music, reports The Grio.
The partnership will focus on West’s international recording brand and worldwide touring ventures, according to a statement from Roc Nation distributor, Def Jam.
DONDA was formed in 2009 during which time West collaborated with fashion house Louis Vuitton for his own footwear collection. West “officially branded DONDA in 2011 with the groundbreaking packaging and tour design for Watch The Throne,” the statement continues.
Then in 2012, through DONDA, West introduced a cinema concept–the 7-Screen Surround Vision experience in Cannes, France with the short film Cruel Summer. The short was the visual companion to the G.O.O.D. Music album.
And in 2013, “DONDA oversaw the concept and design for West’s minimalist YEEZUS album packaging and groundbreaking global launch, including a guerilla-marketing campaign, the ‘New Slaves’ projections,” reports the website. Among DONDA clients are Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Big Sean, Pusha T. DONDA provided album packaging, staging, music videos and content for such artists.
A month after the Grammys aired, it seems that in the time that passed after January 26, the FCC was flooded with quite a few complaints over Beyoncé’s performance of “Drunk in Love” alongside Jay Z. She opened the show, and as we all saw, her performance was quite risqué. Her backside was out, she was writhing on a chair, and there was even a booty palming moment when Jay entered the stage. It was controversial on social media, but it was even more controversial with parents, who according to The Smoking Gun, filed more than 40 indecency complaints against the singer and CBS.
The complaints, according to documents obtained by The Smoking Gun, showed that people took issue with everything from her outfit, to the fact that such a performance was aired at the very beginning of the show, at 8 p.m., a time when people’s kids were still up. As someone put it, she was behaving like an adult film star: “porn is hardly an acceptable way to demonstrate marital love in front of children, and at 8pm children ARE watching.”
One complaint went quite far:
Another person said “Her spread eagle poses barely covered her vulva and the smoke machine didn’t solve the problem.”
But while Beyoncé was the subject of most of the ire from viewers about the Grammys, other people who were targeted include Katy Perry for her performance of “Dark Horse,” which some felt was too dark (and others called “demonic”), and the mass wedding that took place during Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ performance. People claimed Perry was literally taking part in “the summoning of Satan,” while others said that the mass wedding was an attempt to force the “gay agenda” on viewers.
I understand why people took issue with Beyoncé’s performance, though I’m surprised by the anger at the other performances. However, I think I’m more surprised by the fact that folks are still sending letters and hitting up the FCC like that. Who knew!?
But what do you think of all the complaints that were filed because of Beyoncé’s “Drunk In Love” performance, as well as the other controversial performances?
In this day and age where a celebrity’s every move can be well chronicled, somehow these celebrities managed to surprise us all by popping up pregnant out of nowhere. No announcement, no save the date, just them, the red carpet, and a baby bump.
Lil Kim reigned as the Queen Bee of rap in the late 90’s. Although her career took a nosedive following a jail stint for lying under oath, the diminutive star still managed to release new music. She may not be the hottest female rapper around anymore but the Brooklyn emcee will have a new title to her name. Lil Kim popped up at an event during New York Fashion Week earlier this month with a big bun in the oven. She’s a few months into the pregnancy and her boyfriend and daddy to be Mr. Papers revealed she is having a baby boy.

Duets bring out the best in most artists, but there’s something special about it when the collaboration is between a veteran and a newbie in the music game. Recently, Lupe Fiasco posted a picture with Charlie Wilson, letting folks know that that they would be teaming up. It’s just one of many collaborations Wilson has done with rappers and singers (including Kanye West and Snoop Dogg) over the last few years. With that in mind, let’s check out some of the most interesting duets with the veterans and the rookies. What are some of your faves?
This week, we laughed hysterically at the #SorryImNotIdrisElba Twitter trend and face palmed several times when Toni Braxton became too comfortable with Bethenny on the topic of divorce in the black community. The news also brought us up to date on RHOA drama, a surprise child star from Nickelodeon, NFL player Ray Rice’s domestic dispute with his fiancée and is Jay-Z and Beyonce a part of Illuminati or Kimora Lee married again? Check it all out below!
This past Sunday RHOA, Porsha auditioned for a role in Kandi’s play, Mama Joyce threatened to “drag” Kandi’s friend and Kenya tried to make amends with NeNe. The tipping point on the show featured NeNe showing out at Kenya’s masquerade ball; the editing made NeNe look like the worst person ever.
Russel Simmons announced on Twitter his ex-wife Kimora Lee is married to her Tim Leissner. Leissner is the man we saw Kimora frolicking with on the beach during a family vacation with her children and Russel this past Christmas.
Ford was inspired by Jay Z’s “Magna Carta Holy Grail” tour T-shirts that read “Tom Ford,” “61″ with the word “Molly” x’ed out –in reference to his rhyme: “I don’t pop molly. I rock Tom Ford,” reports The Huffington Post. At London Fashion Week, which opened February 14th, Ford showed a black-and-white and an orange-and-white sequin dress down the runway that duplicated Jay-Z’s shirt. It is part of Ford’s Fall/Winter 2014 collection.
“I just took the knock off from online, and knocked it off,” Ford explained to The Associated Press following the show.
Jay Z’s original concert T-shirt was designed by the French clothing line called BBP (Black Boy Place) and costs $65. Ford’s version is a little steeper.
“My knockoff will sell for $6,500,” Ford said to Style.com.
We thought knockoffs were supposed to cost less! You know it’ll be $9.95 at H&M any day now.
