Unconfirmed but EXCITING, nonetheless
Now, we should probably take this news with a HUGE grain of salt but DJ Skee made a huge announcement on Dash Radio yesterday claiming that Beyoncé and Jay Z are working on a joint album together. As you may know, the musical power couple went on tour together for the first time ever this summer (which turned out to be a HUGE success for them financially) so it seems logical that they might want to collaborate on a joint album together. The timing sounds really perfect … which is why I’m having a hard time totally believing this report. Considering how secretive Beyoncé can be when she is working on new music, it’s possible we may not know if this report is true or not until the very last second so it’s probably not a good idea to hold one’s breath. That said, how amazing would it be if B-Jay really did collaborate and put out a joint album together? Would you be down or does it sound like overkill to you?
A few days ago reports that Jay Z MAY have publicly announced wife Beyoncé‘s second pregnancy took the Interwebs by storm when it was reported that he changed the verse of one of his songs to suggest the couple were expecting a second baby. Today we learn that Bey‘s alleged pregnancy is, most likely, not an actual thing because one day after Jay supposedly made his “announcement” on stage, a photo was shared of Bey holding a glass of champagne backstage. Booze and baby bumps don’t mix so … yeah. More »
This is the Remix
Early last month, Beyoncé teamed up with Nicki Minaj for a remix of her song ****Flawless that, as you may recall, musically addressed that elevator fight incident that went down between Jay Z and Solange Knowles last spring. Ever since the remix came out, folks have been dying for a live performance of the track by both Bey and Nicki. Last night, at the Stade du France in Paris, Beyoncé brought Nicki on stage for the first performance ever of their Flawless remix during the filming of Beyoncé and Jay Z‘s On The Run Tour which will be broadcast on HBO later this month. The professionally shot performance will come later, for right now we get to see the adequately fan-filmed video above. Nicki comes on stage at the 4:50 minute mark of the video. Enjoy.
David Beckham made an in-person appearance this week to launch a new clothing line with Belstaff and he inadvertently showed off a new tattoo on his hand. An eagle-eyed blogger at Refinery 29 noticed that the tattoo is a quote that was uttered during Beyoncé and Jay Z‘s On The Run Tour, a quote that Becks‘s wife Victoria Beckham tweeted after the couple attended B-Jay‘s concert performance at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA last month. Apparently, the quote was too important for mere tweeting … Becks decided to have it tattooed on his body. Have a look below. More »
Yesterday, as you may know, was Beyoncé‘s birthday and her husband Jay Z couldn’t let the day go by without wishing her a Happy Birthday. Jay uploaded a video to his official You Tube channel in honor of Bey‘s day and as you can see above, it features lots of images of Beyoncé being fabulous. The video ends with Jay exclaiming, Yeah, B! … and really, that is all that needs to be said.
But, Blue Ivy dancing to Mama Bey's music is something you need to see, too
A lot of things happened during the live broadcast of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards and, unfortunately, not a lot of it is really all that newsworthy or exciting. But MTV wisely decided to save the best for last and had Beyoncé close the show with a stunning 17+ minute performance of a string of hit songs before she was presented with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award — by her husband Jay Z and baby girl Blue Ivy! OMG. Bey‘s performance was EV.ERY.THIN.G IN. THE. WORLD. Just, g-damn, g-damn. Click the embed above to watch Beyoncé‘s epic VMAs performance and then click below to watch an animated gif of Blue Ivy dancing to Beyoncé‘s ****Flawless. OMG. I am slayed by that baby girl. Ugh. WATCH BELOW! More »
"You know, haters gonna be haters"
An industrious videographer for TMZ ran into Tina Knowles in Beverly Hills, CA this week and asked her to comment on the record about those pesky rumors about Beyoncé‘s marriage to Jay Z. Amazingly, Tina happily spoke on camera to give her take on what is really going on in B-Jay‘s marriage. According to Mama Tina, everything is “perfect” in Bey and Jay‘s marriage so … I guess that is all there is to say on the matter. Right? Well, while I doubt Tina‘s word will be enough to quiet the chatter about Beyoncé‘s marriage, it’s nice to see Tina is squarely on team B-Jay. Click the embed above to hear Tina speak on those rumors.
A completely unsubstantiated report
For the past few months, there have been RUMOR after RUMOR after RUMOR that Beyoncé and Jay Z are planning to end their marriage and through it all, the couple has refused to comment publicly on the reports, choosing instead to carry on with their $100 million dollar grossing On The Run Tour. Now that the tour is over, Us Weekly magazine is reviving the break-up rumors AGAIN with a cover story this week that claims Bey has had “ENOUGH” and is taking steps to divorce Jay Z. Of course, this information is completely unsubstantiated without any shred of proof but it’s a story that doesn’t appear to be going away any time soon. More »
Ticket sales to more than 90% capacity -- OF STADIUMS
Despite rumors of poor ticket sales and marital discord, Billboard magazine is reporting today that Beyoncé and Jay Z have thus far amassed $100 million dollars from their current On The Run Tour. The show has been selling at about 90% capacity — of MASSIVE stadiums — and it’s not even finished yet. After B-Jay wrap up their US dates in San Francisco, CA this week, they will take the show to Paris, France for their only international date … which is being filmed for a concert special to air on HBO later this year. Without question, the On The Run Tour will finish as a massively huge financial success. I guess that billion dollars in the elevator is about to get more padding. More »
A few days ago a report was published by Page Six that makes the bold claim that Beyoncé and Jay Z are suffering so much marital discord that they are likely to break-up at the end of their current On The Run Tour … that is, if they even make it that long. Of course the report offers no real proof that B-Jay are on the brink of a break up since this information comes by way of a “source”. Neither Beyoncé nor Jay ever respond to these kinds of reports, choosing instead to just live their lives as usual. Bey posted a super cute family photo on her official Instagram profile last night that shows the happy family being all happy together. More »
