Deuces! Mrs. Carter Ditches Another Manager To Give Herself And Hubby Hov Full Control Of Her Career

Jay-Z Beyoncé Blue Ivy Carter

Bey just gotta be free!!! Word on the curb is that she’s let go of yet another business manager so that she and hubby Hov can have complete control of her career.

According to Mail Online reports:

Beyonce has reportedly parted ways from her manager so that she can run her own affairs with the help of husband Jay-Z.
The 32-year-old singer is believed to have ditched her general manager, Live Nation Executive Faisal Durrani, the Daily Mirror reports.

Durrani, 32, is one of several managers that Beyonce has dismissed over the years so that she can run her career with Jay-Z, 44.

In 2011, the Texan singer sacked her father, Matthew Knowles, who managed the star for 21 years since she was in Destiny’s Child in 1990.

She became the president of Parkwood Entertainment, the entertainment and management company that she set up in 2008.

But now Beyonce has also allegedly dismissed general manager Faisal so that she can gain even more independence with her husband, who plays an unofficial managerial role.

A source told the Daily Mirror: ‘Jay has been heavily involved in Beyonce’s career for years, and was instrumental in organising the Mrs Carter Show World Tour. But he isn’t officially regarded as her manager – she really is independent.’
The insider added that the couple, who got married in 2008 and have a two-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, want to put family life first.

‘Now the couple have Blue, she wants to make sure her family come first at all times, especially as there’s talk of them adding to the brood,’ the source added.

‘The best way to do that is to make sure all managerial decisions are made by her and her husband – together.’
When Beyonce parted ways from her father, she revealed that their relationship had often been tempestuous.

She said: ‘It took about two years, to when I was 20, for him to realize, “Oh, she is an adult now, and if she doesn’t want to do something, I can’t make her do it.’

A representative for Beyonce told Mail Online: ‘Beyonce has managed herself since 2010 under her company Parkwood Entertainment. Faisal Durrani worked for her as President for a very short time.’

It all sounds well and good but we thought the whole point of her letting Matty Knowles go was she wanted him to be “just her dad”, is there going to become a point where Bey and Hov’s business relationship starts getting in the way of their personal one???

Beyoncé Totes Her Tot

Beyonce and Blue Ivy shine in the Big Apple

Grammy Award-winning singer Beyoncé was photographed with daughter Blue Ivy, 2, in New York City on Thursday (January 16). While toting her tot, the pop superstar, 32, looked chic in a patterned striped blazer and green pants with matching heels.

The Grown Woman singer recently shared some family photos on her website. A few days later, she posted more sweet snapshots of her family, including rapper husband Jay-Z.

In cutoff jean shorts and nude heels, the Bootylicious singer was seen playing at the park with her family-of-three. And not to mention baby Blue’s cute white dress.

The proud mom also shared a picture of Blue Ivy Carter’s new rides — a Cadillac and Ferrari.

Blue’s been keeping busy with a posh birthday bash, where her parents rented a wildlife park in Miami and invited several close family and friends to join in on the festivities.

Queen Bey is currently enjoying a break with her family, and will resume the Mrs. Carter World Tour on February 20, 2014 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Making It Rain On Them Hoes: Humpback Hov’s Barneys Collaboration Nets $1 Million


Jay Z’s Barneys Collaboration Nets $1 Million

Looks like Jay selling out for Barneys has really paid off.

According to Rolling Out:

Despite all of the controversy surrounding Jay Z’s holiday collaboration with Barneys, according to the books, it was an overall success. As you may recall, Hov received a plethora of negative press after Barneys was hit with a racial profiling lawsuit, which went viral after the hip hop mogul appeared to side with the franchise.

According to NY Daily News, The Shawn Carter Foundation, benefiting mostly college students, will collect over $1 million in profits thanks to sales from the luxury clothing and accessory line Jay Z and Barneys launched just two months ago.

Back in October, Jay Z assured the pubic that him moving forward with is partnership despite the bad p.r. was all for a good cause: “This money is going to help individuals facing socio-economic hardships to help further their education at institutions of higher learning.”

Do you think Hov did the right thing by continuing to support Barneys.

Jay-Z & Blue Ivy: Infinity Pool Pals


What a great shot!

Beyoncé shared a sweet new photo via Tumblr of husband Jay-Z and their daughter, Blue Ivy, enjoying the pool together.

In the above photo, the 43-year-old rap superstar holds his nearly 22-month-old daughter over his head while standing ankle-deep in an infinity pool. Surrounded by palm trees that overlooks the ocean, the proud papa wears swim trunks and a white T-shirt, while Blue Ivy also wears a little swimsuit.

“She does like her mother’s music… But my album came out and I don’t know if Blue ever heard any of my music prior to this album — she’s only 18 months old and I don’t play my music around the house,” the father-of-one recently explained of his new album. “But this album was new, so we played it. And she loves all the songs. She plays a song and she goes, ‘More, Daddy, more . . . Daddy song.’”

He added: “She’s my biggest fan. If no one bought the Magna Carta [album], the fact that she loves it so much, it gives me the greatest joy. And that’s not like a cliche. I’m really serious. Just to see her — ‘Daddy song, more, Daddy.’ She’s genuine, she’s honest, because she doesn’t know it makes me happy. She just wants to hear it.”


Humpback Hov Releases Statement Clapping Back At Claims That He’s Choosing Paper Over Politics In Barneys Racial Profiling Scandal!


Shawn Carter finally steps down from The Throne to address the matter at hand

Jay Z Releases Statement About Barneys Racial Profiling Scandal

Ever since the news broke that Barneys had been accused of racial profiling, Jay Z has found himself in the hot seat as people began to question his motives when he did not immediately renounce his collaborative charity project with the high-end retailer. This evening, Jay released a statement defending his silence against those who implied he lacked empathy for the 2 young, black, victims.

Via LifeAndTimes

This collaboration lives in a place of giving and is about the Foundation. I am not making a dime from this collection; I do not stand to make millions, as falsely reported. I need to make that fact crystal clear. The Shawn Carter Foundation is the beneficiary and the foundation is receiving 25% of all sales from the collaboration, 10% of all sales generated in the store on November 20th and an additional donation from Barneys. This money is going to help individuals facing socio-economic hardships to help further their education at institutions of higher learning. My idea was born out of creativity and charity… not profit.

I move and speak based on facts and not emotion. I haven’t made any comments because I am waiting on facts and the outcome of a meeting between community leaders and Barneys. Why am I being demonized, denounced and thrown on the cover of a newspaper for not speaking immediately? The negligent, erroneous reports and attacks on my character, intentions, and the spirit of this collaboration have forced me into a statement I didn’t want to make without the full facts. Making a decision prematurely to pull out of this project, wouldn’t hurt Barneys or Shawn Carter, but all the people that stand a chance at higher education. I have been working with my team ever since the situation was brought to my attention to get to the bottom of these incidents and at the same time find a solution that doesn’t harm all those that stand to benefit from this collaboration.

I am against discrimination of any kind, but if I make snap judgements, no matter who it’s towards, aren’t I committing the same sin as someone who profiles? I am no stranger to being profiled and I truly empathize with anyone that has been put in that position. Hopefully this brings forth a dialogue to effect real change. – Shawn “JAY Z” Carter

What do you think of Shawn’s statement? Do you still think he should pull out of his deal with Barneys, or is he right to wait for the facts to emerge?

Celebrity Couples Give Back On 9/11


If there is one thing celebs have in common with those of us who spend our lives away from the paparazzi, it’s giving back. Although it oftentimes slips our minds as celebs glamorously glide down the red carpet in Versace, we must remember that many Hollywood stars are volunteers, humanitarians, environmentalists, and ambassadors. Our friends over at Cupid’s Pulse have the scoop on famous couples who used their fame, power, and influence just yesterday to support and honor those who suffered and still suffer from September 11, 2001.

1. Beyoncé and Jay Z: It is known that Beyoncé and Jay Z are one of the most powerful pairs in the entire world, both bringing in one of the largest incomes of any couple. There is no doubt that they live a life of luxury with baby Blue Ivy, but they spread just as much love as they do money. In 2009, Jay Z held a September 11th benefit concert in New York City that was expected to raise nearly one million dollars, which was all donated to the New York Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund. For the 10th anniversary of 9/11, Beyoncé released the single “God Bless the USA” to raise funds for the same organizations as her hubby just two years before.

Jay-Z Had To Protect Beyoncé From The Diddy-J.Cole VMA After Party Fight

Can’t let a silly squabble endanger your baby mama…

Via NYDailyNews

Beyoncé put on quite a show at the VMA after-party Sunday night at the Dream Downtown — screaming her head off when Diddy started a fight that broke out right next to her.

“Diddy got in a fight with someone partying too close to him and his girlfriend” Cassie, one guest tells Confidenti@l. “It was mayhem. Beyoncé was yelling to stop and Jay Z was separating people and getting people away from Bey.”

Our spy adds that the ruckus escalated, then subsided after about 90 seconds of shoving and bottle-breaking at around 1:30 a.m.

“We were all dancing and the fight breaks out, and it happened so quickly and bottles were crashing everywhere, and everyone was screaming. People got pushed into bottles,” another guest tells us. “Then Diddy got up, took the mic and said ‘It’s all cool! Ya’ll keep having fun! It’s no big deal, it’s over.’”

Witnessing the brawl were Jamie Foxx, Pharrell,, Russell Simmons and Busta Rhymes, who wisely came with a hulking bodyguard.

Wonder what Camel-man would have done if Bey had been injured during the “Born Sinner Beatdown”? Diddy might have gotten the Lance “Un” Rivera treatment

Julius would have been lookin’ for a new gig.

Jay-Z Talks Damon Dash And Miley Cyrus

Jay-Z stopped by the Angie Martinez Show to give his opinion on everything from Damon Dash listening to his music to Miley Cyrus’ twerking. Check out the interview below.

According to SOHH

“Yeah, yeah, yeah,” Jay said when asked about Dash co-signing his new LP. “The thing, what we built, you can’t take that away so no matter what, no time or space — the love is still there. Because what we’ve done will forever be stamped in history. We created something that’s gonna go down forever. So I can only have love for Dame. I just don’t know where we are in our life, we’re not the same two men at that time when we gelled in that way. We were two different people. I haven’t seen him in a while. … [His publicized woes?] I can’t control everything. I can’t control the things in life. Of course if you see somebody going through problems, I have ultimate confidence in him that he’ll find his way ’cause he’s an amazing and smart guy — he’s a hustler and he’s highly intelligent, so I always root for him and always believe that he’ll find his way out of it. But I can’t control what happens in life.”

“Miley’s serious, I like what she’s doing right now,” Jay said. “She’s fearless, just being herself — I think it’s more reaction from people wanting her to be ‘Hannah Montana.’ I don’t know, [it's just from me] watching the situation I would say people want her to be something and she’s like, ‘I’m not that.’ …. That must be really frustrating and this is her reaction to it. Of course it’s loud but it’s understandable. [Miley Cyrus coming to Roc Nation?] Hey, there’s room on the roster. [laughs]“

If he was stuck on an island would he rather hear Damon Dash talk about his music or see Miley Cyrus twerk? Oh the possibilities.

Sell Out: Camel Man Hov Has Begun The Sale Of His Shares Of The Brooklyn Nets In Order To Represent NBA Players Throught Roc Nation Sports

Camel in brooklyn

Ah well, it was a good run while it lasted.

Jay-Z Selling His Shares Of The Brooklyn Nets In Order To Represent NBA Players Through Roc Nation Sports

Via Yahoo!

Entertainment mogul and rapper Jay-Z has started the process of divesting his small share of ownership with the Brooklyn Nets to extend his Roc Nation Sports representation business into basketball, sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Jay-Z – whose real name is Shawn Carter – owns less than 1 percent of the Nets, but has been a central public figure in the franchise’s marketing and move from New Jersey to Brooklyn.

Selling his share of the Nets is a necessary prelude for Jay-Z to obtain his National Basketball Players Association certification as an agent.

NBA rules mandate that no one individual affiliated with a player representation company can have an ownership stake with an NBA team.

Jay-Z’s Roc Nation company has partnered with Creative Artists Agency (CAA) to launch a sports representation business that recently secured New York Yankees star Robinson Cano.

The process is expected to be completed in time for Roc Nation to compete for players entering the June NBA draft, but there’s no guarantee of the timing, sources said. Those within Roc Nation and the CAA alliance aren’t “chasing a clock on this,” one source said. “This isn’t about one draft, but taking the long view of the business.”

Rival agents are anxious over the possibilities of Jay-Z on the recruiting trail, believing the lure of his iconic business and cultural standing will have a major impact on attracting top prospects and current league stars.

The rich are always plotting a way to get richer. We’re sure between the sale of his shares and his new business interest in sports management, Jiggaman’s pockets will only get fatter.

For The Stans: Beyawnsay And Camel Blew Off The Oscars For… Sex Dinner In The City

jay singing to bey

And Blue Ivy made a poopy in the shape of Baphomet… But seriously, if you were wondering what the Knowles-Carters were doing on Sunday you’re in luck. Big Brother was watching.

Via Page Six reports:

Jay-z and Beyoncé missed the Oscars, and instead had dinner with Sarah Jessica Parker in New York on Sunday night. The music power couple joined the “Sex and the City” star and five others for a long meal at Freemans on the Lower East Side. “They completely blew off the Oscars,” said a source, adding, “They didn’t even have it on a TV screen. They were there until well after 1 a.m. with their friends, laughing and eating.” Bey’s sister Solange, however, was seen partying at Vanity Fair’s LA bash.

All this sounds very innocuous until you put in perspective that both Sarah Jessica Parker and Beyoncé have produced major TV projects for HBO — leading us to wonder if there is some kind of fashionista-related Hollyweird plot being put together for a project that will involve them both.

Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

What book of the Bible talks about wives pimpin’ husbands??

Rev. Run Says Beyonce Is Pimping Jay-Z

Via Rolling Out

Rapper-turned-pastor-turned-reality star-turned-relationship guru Rev. Run has been making the rounds with his pal and co-author Tyrese as the two promote their new book, Man-Ology. While stopping in D.C. for a book signing and Q-and-A, the former Run-D.M.C. frontman was asked about superstar couple Beyoncé and Jay-Z.

“Those were the parallels for me — ‘The Book of Ruth’ and Beyoncé and Jay-Z, because she captured the ultimate pimp,” Run said. “She out-pimped him.”

“She’s so smart and feminine, that she was smart enough to name the new upcoming tour ‘Mrs. Carter.’ The world tour is ‘Mrs. Carter,’ ” he continued. “She gon’ keep his ego in check. Like, ‘I gotta come home to this n—a.’ So, it’s like, ‘You be cool running around with Kanye, but know the name of the tour is ‘Mrs. Carter.’ I’m Mrs. Carter.’ ”

“So that’s the balance,” Run explained. “It’s being feminine, but having a little life on your hands and being kind of busy but not too busy. Be ready to name your tour Mrs. Whoever-you’re-trying-to-get-with.”

Damn Rev, you might be getting a call from Camel because he’s definitely not gonna like this one.

Ladies, do you think that Beysus Christ has a stronger pimp hand than Camel’s??

Shook Ones: Hubby Hov Helps King Bey Keep It Together After Losing $1.8 Milli Emerald Earrings Worn To Inauguration

Inaugural Swearing In

This is actually pretty sweet. It turns out the lip-synching fiasco wasn’t the only near disaster to go on during Obama’s second inaugural event this January. Turns out Bey narrowly avoided a national crisis after a pair of pricy earrings turned up missing.

Via National Enquirer reports:

If you think BEYONCE’s headline-making “lip-synch” controversy was her BIG inauguration crisis, think again – here’s the secret even PRESIDENT OBAMA doesn’t know:

The minute she hit her D.C. hotel, Star Singer erupted in Mad Panic when she discovered that the 80-carat designer emerald earrings she was set to wear onstage – worth a staggering $1.8 million – had suddenly disappeared!

“After she and hubby JAY-Z checked into their hotel, Beyonce unpacked her bags and couldn’t find the earrings – which cost more than a luxury home,” said a friend.

“She rummaged through her luggage in a panic, getting her maid – and other housekeepers – to join the search.” Jay-Z, who’d stepped out of the suite, returned to chaos as Wifey tore the place apart. Begging his babe to chill, he asked: “Did you check your purse?”

Beyonce went berserk, shrieking: “You think I’m an idiot? Of course I did!”

Said the friend: “Jay quietly urged her to check again, so she opened it up to show him, and… Voila!…there were the earrings! Beyonce gasped. She thought she’d checked her purse, but it turned out she’d been so stressed, she actually hadn’t!”

HERE’S THE KICKER: “Beyonce then handed the maid a $500 reward for helping search – and Jay went NUTS,” said the friend. “He told Beyonce, ‘Man, I’m the one who found them! Why don’t you pay ME?’ ” Instead, hubby got a great big lip-synch (aka, kiss)! Aaawwww!

This story is pure comedy… This tale does a lot for their public image in terms of likability and generosity. Does anybody actually believe it though?

Beyonce on the Fake Pregnancy Rumors!

Beyonce is finally talking about all those fake pregnancy rumors that had been going around. Even some of the writers on this site questioned if Beyonce was really pregnant. What did Beyonce think about all those rumors? She thought they were crazy,

“That was crazy. It wasn’t hurtful, and it was just crazy. [I thought] ‘Where did they come up with this?’” Beyonce said.

The moment that really made the fake pregnancy rumors take off was when Beyonce appeared on an Australian TV show. The 30-year-old came out on stage and when she took a seat, it looked like her baby bump “deflated” or folded when she sat down. This really made people suspicious, but Beyonce doesn’t understand the nonsense,

“It was a fabric that folded…does fabric not fold? Oh my gosh, so stupid” Beyonce said. Tina Knowles (Beyonce’s Mom) was also upset by the rumors, “I thought it was very unfair and very cruel that someone would think that someone would be that diabolical to keep up a charade like that.” Tina said.

So, there you have it. IT’S HER BABY! LEAVE BEYONCE ALONE….LEAVE HER ALONE! JUST LEAVE HER ALONE! Beyonce on the Fake Pregnancy Rumors! Beyonce on the Fake Pregnancy Rumors! Beyonce on the Fake Pregnancy Rumors! Beyonce on the Fake Pregnancy Rumors!


Beyonce: Most Beautiful Woman in the World?

Beyonce just had a baby not that long ago, but it hasn’t stopped PEOPLE magazine from naming her, ‘The most beautiful woman in the world’ on its new cover. Beyonce credits the beautifulness to giving birth and having a baby,

“I feel more beautiful than I’ve ever felt because I’ve given birth.  I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth. The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy. The world “love” means something completely different now.” she told the magazine.

And get this, Beyonce even claims that she loves changing diapers! She sounds like the perfect mom, huh? It’s probably easy being a mom when you have all the money in the world and a robot named “Geoffrey” who helps out around the house 24/7

Anyway, congratulations to Beyonce. Beyonce: Most Beautiful Woman in the World? Beyonce: Most Beautiful Woman in the World? Beyonce: Most Beautiful Woman in the World? Beyonce: Most Beautiful Woman in the World?


President Obama Says Kanye Is Still a Jackass

I’m sure you still remember back in 2009,  the infamous Kanye/Taylor Swift MTV Video Music Awards incident? Shortly thereafter, our President referred to the rapper as a “jackass,” and a few years later, his view still hasn’t changed. In the latest issue of The Atlantic, the President mentions that he actually prefers Jay-Z’s music over Kanye’s but does mention: “I like Kanye. He’s a Chicago guy. Smart. He’s very talented.” However, Obama still holds on to his belief that the 34-year-old rap superstar is a “jackass.”  A reporter from the magazine recalled that “when the interview reminded Obama of his comment from 2009, he replied, ‘He is a jackass. . . But he’s talented.’”

Momma Beyonce in Bathing Suit!

Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z are enjoying some well deserved downtime in St. Barts. Beyonce slipped into a bathing suit just three months after giving birth to her daughter Blue Ivy and we have to say, she looked pretty damn good! She still has that same “Beyonce Body” that we all love so much.

The 30-year-old superstar had her hair tied back in a ponytail and she was rocking one awesome pair of sunglasses. Her splash in the water came after a nice long day of relaxing with Jay-Z on the beach (you can see all the pictures below) it looks like they are both a fan of the “Men in Black” sunglasses look. It also looks like they are both a fan of wine, the couple appeared to order a bottle of wine on the beach.

Ah, yes! A nice bottle of wine on the beach…must be nice. Last time I went to the beach, I packed a PB&J and a juice box. Not even a quality juice box either, it was one of those with the tiny straws that never go in the hole. Momma Beyonce in Bathing Suit! Momma Beyonce in Bathing Suit! Momma Beyonce in Bathing Suit!

The Weirdest Celebrity Baby Names!

Celebrities are known for giving their babies bizarre names, and just recently Beyoncé and Jay-Z continued the trend. As we all know they named their kid, “Blue Ivy” which sounds more like a bar of soap. But, they are not the worst offenders; I have looked back and found some really horrible celebrity baby names. “Pilot Inspektor” Yeah, actor Jason Lee named his kid, “Pilot” are you freaking kidding me? Is the next kid going to be named, “Co-Pilot?” I mean, where does the madness stop? That poor kid. “Apple” What a fruity name, huh? Gwyneth Paltrow named her kid APPLE! That just doesn’t make any sense. What could possibly make you want to name your kid apple? Do you know how confusing that is going to be? What if the kid is at school and hears, “Apple” and the kid turns around, only to find out they were talking about an actual apple! You don’t make your kid’s name edible! “Memphis Eve” Only Bono could think of such a horrible douchey name. It’s bad enough having to be the child of Bono, but now you have to deal with that name, too? Life is just not fair. “Blanket” Why not? We have a freaking apple on the list, why not add a blanket? As most of you know Michael Jackson named his kid Blanket. If we ever find a kid named, “Snuggie” I think it would be safe to assume it is Michael’s long lost child. “Tu Morrow” Are you serious? Actor, ‘Rob Morrow’ named his kid Tu Morrow…just think about that for a minute. Do you get it, yet? He just punned the hell out of his baby’s name! There has to be some sort of law against that, arrest that man! “Moxie Crimefighter” What kind of crime is Moxie fighting? The crime of parents giving their kids horrible names? Moxie Crimefighter? What were you thinking, Penn Jillette? Teller could have come up with a better name, and he doesn’t even talk!

Tuesday’s Miscellaneous Junk You Might Like — 1/10/12

Hello there, my junkie friends! I’m back for the third time with the Miscellaneous Junk You Might Like! So… let the fun begin!!! Dr. Conrad Murray, as we all know, was found guilty for causing the legend Michael Jackson’s death because it was he who prescribed the medication Propofol to the star. Now, Dr. Murray is basically being sued in a civil court by MJ’s fam for $100 million dollars. But, Dr. Murray is saying that he may have prescribed lethal meds to Michael, but it was Michael himself who administered the medication and therefore MJ is responsible for his own death. You know what? I agree. Just because a celebrity is a celebrity and they get whatever they want from whoever they want doesn’t make them any less responsible for their own actions. That Dr. was WRONG, but in the end, it was Michael who was responsible for his own actions — that’s what being an adult is all about. Enough with the heavy… So, do you guys remember that mega WWE star named Stone Cold Steve Austin? Yes, I figured you would. Well, those who are WWE fans — and even those who aren’t — will remember his saying ‘Austin 3:16 says I just whooped your ass!’ Well, TMZ caught up to Stone Cold and asked him if he would consider relinquishing his hold over the numbers to Tim Tebow. After finding out that Tebow threw a … miraculous… 316 yards in this last game, Stone Cold said that he would gladly give them up… if Tebow could do it again. Wow… so now, 3:16 isn’t associated with its original place, but with the saying of a WWE wrestler and now a football player?! Okay… I’m not going there… Baby Blue Ivy has been taken home! Beyonce and Jay-Z took their multi-million dollar bundle of joy to their multi-million dollar Manhattan apartment. Something you may not have known? At least part — or even most of — that million dollars was spent on renovation to the hospital itself! This included a swanky — and of course, private — recovery area, as well as a damn bulletproof door for Beyonce’s room!!! All of this for a three day stay! Wow… Kelly Rowland, former member of the Beyonce led group Destiny’s Child, stopped by the Lucky Wang baby boutique. For what exactly? To buy baby Blue Ivy a green Bob Marley onezie of course. That. is. just. stupid! You wanna know the really sad thing? I bet that scrap of material probably cost her — not just one — but a couple pretty pennies. As my friend and fellow Daily Fix author, Zachary Row reported to you all a few days ago, Russell Brand was Banned from the People’s Choice Awards. Why? Because, they didn’t want Katy Perry to feel uncomfortable around her estranged husband. Yeah… like that building’s not big enough for the two of them. But, no worries now, because Katy Perry has announced that she won’t even [...]

Jay-Z Reveals Shocking News in New Song (video inside!)

Jay-Z has just released a brand new song that he wrote for his daughter, “Blue Ivy Carter” and you can listen to it below. In the song he broke some pretty shocking news. There is a line in the song that says the following… ‘Last time the miscarriage was so tragic/We was afraid you’d disappear /But nah baby you magic.’ That is some pretty big news! I am surprised he would share that all of the sudden in a song, but I guess what better way to express his feelings. Songwriting is probably part of the healing process for him. Some of the other touching lyrics in the song include… ‘The most amazing feeling I feel, words can’t describe what I’m feeling for real / Baby, I paint the sky blue, my greatest creation was you.’ ‘You’re the child of destiny / you’re the child of my destiny / you’re my child with the child from Destiny’s Child.’ That last line is pretty clever, huh? I guess that is why they pay him the big bucks. At the end of the song you can even hear Blue Ivy crying, a very nice touch. Also, the couple released a statement saying the baby was born, “Naturally” at a healthy 7lbs. So, I guess the reports saying that she had a C-section were wrong.

Beyoncé finally had her Baby!

Let’s all take a moment to congrats Beyoncé and Jay-Z! They welcomed their baby girl into this world last night after a planned C-section. A source told the Houston Chronicle that, “mother and baby are doing fine.” They named her, ‘Blue Ivy Carter’ because you know, no celebrity can give their kid a normal name. They’re too “famous” for that. Gwyneth Paltrow is a close friend and she had this to say on twitter, “Welcome to the world Blue! We love you already.” There was actually some confusion on whether they named her, ‘Ivy Blue’ or ‘Blue Ivy’ they both sound the same to me, but rest assured it is, ‘Blue Ivy.’  Some celebrities have already started tweeted their congratulations to the couple. Rihanna and Russell Simmons both tweeted their congratulations to the couple. My favorite part of this story is that supposedly the couple booked out the entire fourth floor of the hospital, spending $1.3million to do so. Are you kidding me? That is insane. I don’t understand why they would need a whole floor, why not have just one private room and have a bunch of security? Spending $1.3million on something so unnecessary is so mind boggling to me. I guess it’s because I don’t have a lot of money, maybe to them $1.3million is pocket change. But, I could make $1.3million last for my entire life, and my future kid’s entire life. Whatever, though. I am just a “normal” guy with a boring normal name. Why didn’t my parents name me, “Sea Breeze” then I might have actually done something in life.

Kanye West’s Weird-Ass Video for his Song “Monster”

We told you about Kanye West’s new music video for his song Monster after the preview came out a few weeks ago, well BEHOLD! The somewhat final version of the creep fest that is the Monster video is finally here, pack full of all that nice stuff you want to see, like severed woman-heads, dead-looking zombiettes, women hanging from nooses, gratuitous diamond-teeth close-ups… It’s all right here people!

Personally I think Kanye is trying a little too hard. I like images of death, monsters, the supernatural, and all that gory stuff quite a bit, but women hanging from nooses, dead women as props… what’s he doing? Is he a serial killer, Patrick Bateman style? It just seems silly. Especially since he raps so much about how much he loves God. That’s a personal pet peeve of mine. Stop going on and on about how evil you are when you pause to give a shout out to Jesus every 17 seconds in almost everything you do.

Oh and that the crazy ass Nicki Minaj vs Nicki Minaj fight is actually two of her alter egos. Roman vs Barbie… A part of me is ashamed to say I know enough about Nicki Minaj to figure out which personalities she’s embodying at the moment; but another part of it is glorifying in my knowledge of pop culture right now.


Jay-Z and Beyonce Like to Give Each Other Retardedly Expensive Gifts

As we reported early this month Beyonce got Jay-Z a $2,000,000 ride for his birthday, a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport. Well not to be outdone Jay-Z got the “independent woman”  $350,000 worth of Birkin bags, you know, to carry around all of that diamond encrusted stuff she probably has. You might think that price tag pales in comparison to the cool $2 million that Beyonce spent. However, in September, Jay bought Beyonce a $20,000,000 private island off the shore of Florida.

According to the New York Post:

Beyonce got some sweet gifts yesterday. Her husband, Jay-Z, was spotted shopping at Hermes’ plush Madison Avenue boutique on Christmas Eve. A spy reports, “Jay was in a private room of Hermes doing last-minute shopping. He had a guard standing watch outside. He spent $350,000 on Birkin bags, among other things.” The buying binge took so long, Jay-Z missed his scheduled lunch at Nello, prompting the restaurateur to deliver his food to the store. Jay-Z has plenty to spend — he’s getting $1 million to perform at the opening of the Cosmopolitan hotel and casino in Vegas on New Year’s Eve.

Having googled Birkin bags, I found that they look, to my ignorant eyes, exactly like the ones at Target for $29.99. Purpose of both: You tote things in it and on occasion, perhaps use it assault gun-wielding maniacs.

The only thing Jay could’ve given his wife that might genuinely surprise her is a small sovereign nation that he paid mercenaries to overthrow and reclaim as Beyonceland (or Beyonconia, Beyoncestein, or what have you). Otherwise, they just have to add to each other’s collections of luxury goods.

But I get where they are coming from, when I have a sad day, I totally retreat to my diamond house and make love on mink. Except that I disguise the diamonds with peeling wood and the mink is bred to look and feel like clearance sheets from Walmart. I’m thoughtful to the neighbors that way.
