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.

"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 »
Manicures, Pedicures and Art
It’s 4th of July weekend here in the US (Happy Independence Day, fellow Americans) and while many folks will be celebrating with family and friends at BBQs, pool parties and/or with fireworks, Beyoncé and her family are celebrating in a bit of a different way. Bey uploaded a set of photos to her official website that feature her daughter Blue Ivy and hubby Jay Z enjoying some family time together this 4th of July week. Bey and Blue pampered themselves by getting matching manicures and pedicures before they met up with daddy Jay for a family trip to see the Kara Walker exhibit A Subtlety at Brooklyn’s legendary Domino Sugar Factory. Click thru the gallery presented here to see what Beyoncé‘s family got up to this week. Happy 4th, all!
They blow shizz up, y'all!!!
Earlier this week, Beyoncé shared a bunch of behind the scenes photos from tour rehearsals with hubby Jay Z for their On The Run Tour, which kicked off in Miami, FL on Wednesday night. Today we get to see a just-released video that shows actual footage from The On The Run Tour rehearsals so we get to see B-Jay in action doing the creative thing. Because I’m seeing this show later in the summer, I’m trying DESPERATELY to avoid spoilers so … I don’t really know the setlist, nor have I watched much live video (except for THESE two videos). This tour rehearsal video is fun, spoiler free and features MASSIVE EXPLOSIONS. What’s not to love?!

Well, today we get to see a slew of behind the scenes photos that were snapped on the set of the fictional movie trailer. The photos are fun and many of the celebs that star in the trailer are featured as well so … have a look around, won’t you?
"Please let's get the word out to properly care for Blue Ivy hair."
In what, apparently, started out as a “joke”, a new Change.org petition has gathered more than 2,000 signatures in an effort to get Beyoncé and Jay Z to better care for their daughter Blue Ivy‘s hair. A woman named Jasmine Tolliver, who describes herself as “a woman who understands the importance of hair care“, started the petition yesterday because she finds it “disturbing to watch a child suffering from the lack of hair moisture“. As such, Tolliver has taken it upon herself to gather signatures from strangers in an attempt to force B-Jay to groom their daughter’s hair in the manner that Tolliver sees fit. This sounds like a great use of time, doesn’t it? More »
