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.

Yesterday I wrote a little about coming to terms with the fact that Beyoncé may just be the type of celebrity who has her Instagram pictures photoshopped before she posts them. I can accept a certain amount of diva in the world’s biggest pop stars, but that whole movement just irks me a bit. And many of you agreed that her photos are most likely/definitely being altered. In what I’m assuming is a direct response to our conversation, Beyoncé has taken to Instagram to post a new photo that gives us a glimpse at Blue Ivy. Click inside for more!
This Monday the Emmy Awards will air on NBC, and I expect it to be a good show that will have its somber moments. There has been some speculation as to how the Robin Williams tribute might be handled, and it sounds like they have something interesting in the works. From the moment we learned of his death, there has been an outpouring from the entertainment world—I can’t really say I’ve seen anything like it before. Billy Crystal, a longtime friend of the late comedian, will lead the tribute, and I’m really looking forward to hearing what he has to say about Williams as a friend and collaborator.

The last time Trent was in New York we had a great time together, and I specifically remember us out at dinner, talking about Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon (among other things). We each had different theories about how/why they work, but I think we were also both marveling at the fact that they’ve been together longer than many celebrity couples—certainly longer than many folks anticipated. So I’m a little bummed to hear that the divorce rumors are swirling once again, and some sources are saying that the separation process began long ago. And, apparently, Nick‘s past dealing with Mrs. Kanye West may have contributed to some of the issues. Click inside for more.
In trying to keep up with some of the news about Ferguson, Missouri I had to share a really interesting story about a police officer in Kansas City, Missouri who is now coming under scrutiny for some troubling Facebook posts. As you all know, I don’t throw around the word “racist” lightly and I thought about whether or not these posts fall under that definition for me. Because of what’s happening in Ferguson right now as a direct result of the killing of yet another young, unarmed black man, Michael Brown, I feel like sending a particular message like this one is indeed racist.

Well, I am in an incredibly happy place right now. Ariana Grande released four new tracks today and now that I’m all dried off, it’s nice to enjoy some new sounds. Love Me Harder features The Weeknd, and it is a really sweet track. Something about it sounds very mature too, which I wasn’t quite expecting. Ariana also released Be My Baby (OMG, it’s playing now… I love it), featuring Cashmere Cat, A Little Bit of Your Heart (written by Harry Styles), and Why Try. Peep the video for more!
My Everything will be released next Tuesday.
First of all, I haven’t even watched Taylor Swift‘s new video for Shake It Off. Something about all of the screenshots I’ve been seeing has me feeling like I just won’t be into it right now… but I’m also kind of curious reading the comments on the blog). Still, Swifty remains one of my red carpet favorites, and I was interested in seeing what her new thoughts are on relationships. She opened up in a recent interview with Fusion, and it sounds like she’s trying to get her priorities straight. Click inside for more!

Jessica Alba hit up the red carpet for the Los Angeles premiere of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and looked amazing. I don’t know what it is about her style, but I always love the way she looks. I think she’s just the visual definition of sexy and classy at the same time, always and forever. This time around she rocked a gorgeous blue Zac Posen dress, these silver strappy mules, and yeah. Slayage. Peep the gallery for more!
