Blue Ivy: Nappy Hair Isn’t ‘Natural,’ Comb Hair Petition Scandal

by on

Blue Ivy’s nappy hair has upset black Twitter in the past. Now Jay-Z’s mini-me was recently photographed with a very nappy afro with Beyonce walking behind her. Blue Ivy’s hair has always been natural, e.g., hasn’t been straightened and no one has a problem with that, but some people have an issue with Blue’s matted, dry dirty hair with lint in it that is growing into dreadlocks at the ends.

 beyonce-blue-ivy-hair

Beyonce is much older than Blue is in the photo above, but B’s mom is a hairdresser. She knows better than this.

I completely support the petition urging Beyonce to do something right with Blue Ivy Carter’s hair! Those who say that the petition is wrong because “BLUE IVY IS A CHILD!” don’t understand that the petition was made BECAUSE she’s a child.

Blue is too young to comb her hair herself, which is why being photographed with a dirty, nappy afro is so sad. She has no choice but to look a mess because her parents and their staff don’t do anything with her hair, which is why she’s growing dreadlocks and has lint in her hair.

Beyonce’s stans are furious about this petition and those fearing the wrath of the Beyhive are defending Beyonce. But this is simple. This isn’t about how much one enjoys Beyonce. The petition is urging her mother to not allow her daughter’s hair to become dreaded. It’s already matted, dry and dirty and will only become more matted if her parents keep this up.

Meanwhile, Beyonce’s hair is laid and she only wears high quality fake hair, that’s styled perfectly. So why isn’t Bey combing her daughter’s hair? If she doesn’t want to comb her hair herself because Blue cries when her hair is combed, she has staff that can take care of it. And if Bey and Jay-Z don’t want other people touching their daughter’s hair, they should shave it off.

The Comb Blue Ivy’s Hair petition reads:

“As a woman who understands the importance of hair care. It’s disturbing to watch a child suffering from the lack of hair moisture. The parents of Blue Ivy. Sean Carter A.K.A Jay-Z and Beyoncé has failed at numerous attempts of doing Blue Ivy Hair. This matter has escalated to the child developing matted dreads and lint balls. Please let’s get the word out to properly care for Blue Ivy hair.”

Never in my life have I seen a child with hair in such poor condition. The petition is not an insult to Blue Ivy, who can not read but will be embarrassed by the photos of her nappy hair. The petition is a call to action to her negligent parents who refuse to comb their daughter’s hair. How can you even wash your hair if your entire afro is turning into a friggin’ rat’s nest?

Jay-­Z and Beyoncé Aren’t Going to Kimye’s Wedding, Spent 100k on Gifts

by on

Beyoncé and Jay­-Z want no part in Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding, allegedly. We’ve already heard that Jay and B won’t be showing up or showing out at Kim’s wedding, now we’re hearing that Blue Ivy‘s dad has found a very expensive way to make it up to them.

beyonce-jay-z-4

Some couples still get a wedding gift from their friends who can’t attend their nuptials, but Jay­-Z is paying for something you won’t find on a gift registry. He’s reportedly dropped $100,000 on a rented yacht for the couple’s honeymoon and plans to shut it down at Kanye’s bachelor party at his 40/40 nightclub.

The Kimye wedding is scheduled to take place in France next month and will be filmed by E! cameras. A source tells The Sun newspaper:

“Jay-­Z would be there if it wasn’t going to be such a public event.” The source added: “Instead he’s making it up to his mate by throwing him the most extravagant stag do known to man. It will cost a small fortune – and to top it all off, he’s chucked a £100,000 yacht rental in there as a wedding gift as well.”

Meanwhile we’re still seeing new rumors about how Beyoncé kept it moving when she recently ran into Kim at an office in LA. Now a source tells The Daily Mail that Bey did talk to the infamous reality star. “Beyoncé and Kim did speak at the clinic. They had a friendly chat and then went about their days.”

I think it’s obvious that Kim and Beyoncé are friendly, but Beyoncé isn’t going to let Kim in her circle. B is guarded, busy, and she rolls with Oscar or Grammy winners. Diddy will walk down the aisle with a pregnant Cassie before Beyoncé and Kim become besties.

Beyonce Photoshops Thigh Gap in Bikini Pictures

by on

Beyoncé’s fans are unhappy that the iconic singer isn’t happy with her bootylicious body, allegedly. Bey posted two bikini pics onto her Instagram and the Photoshopping was horrible!

Beyonce 2014 Photoshop bikini Beyonce Photoshop instagram

Check out the huge thigh gap and the unsmoothed out thighs.

The photos were posted yesterday, showing Blue Ivy’s mom golfing in the Dominican Republic…. I can’t remember where the pictures were but wherever they were taken, isn’t the setting gorgeous?

One shot shows Beyonce holding a golf club and lining up her shot.  Behind her is an enviable tropical scene, complete with palm trees, sparkling  waters, and a pool with umbrellas. Jay Z’s wife wore an unconventional outfit for the  day of putting, sporting a high-waisted pair of striped bottoms and a  midriff-baring pink bandeau top. Beyonce topped off the relaxed vacation look  with bare feet and her highlighted hair flowing naturally.

Yonce knows that she’s stunning and she’s probably pretty cocky in real life. The problem with Beyoncé is that whoever manages her Instagram doesn’t know what they’re doing. They post pictures by the dozen and naturally they’re dumb enough to take a poorly Photoshopped image and share it for her millions of fans. I don’t think Beyoncé doctored the picture herself. She’s too much of a perfectionist to approve of such sh!tty work. Someone needs to get fired!

Beyonce, Sheryl Sandberg, Condolezza Rice Aim to ‘Ban Bossy’

by on

Words are powerful and so is celebrity status. Some of the most successful women in Hollywood, politics, and technology appear in a new PSA for Girl Scouts.

The PSA below features Jennifer Garner, Jane Lynch, Beyoncé and others who are fighting against society’s double standard when it comes to male and female leadership. It is so true that women are quickly labeled whenever they’re opinionated and in charge while men are expected to be leaders and they’re praised for having high ranking roles.

Garner chimes in, “Being labeled something matters,” and Lynch adds, “I think the word ‘bossy’ is just a squasher.”

 

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg adds: “We need to recognize the many ways we systematically discourage leadership in girls from a young age – and instead, we need to encourage them. So the next time you have the urge to call your little girl bossy? Take a deep breath and praise her leadership skills instead.”

Naturally Bey spends the least time speaking, because she sounds like a man and has a thick Southern accent, but she does deliver the best line in the video. Watch it until the very end to see what Blue Ivy‘s mom says!

I don’t know any grown adults who use the word “bossy,” but I support the message behind this campaign.

Blue Ivy’s Nappy Hair Revealed, Face Covered in New Beyonce Tumblr Pics

by on

Blue Ivy has some of the nappiest hair in celebrity baby history. Beyoncé and Jay-Z have avoided combing their 2-year-old’s daughter hair for some reason and it’s not like they can’t afford to get someone else to do it if they don’t want to, but I digress.

Blue Ivy 2014, Beyonce hold hands

What also remains unknown is why Beyoncé only posts pictures of the back of Blue’s head. We already know what she looks like! We have the paparazzi to thank for that. So what’s the big deal?! Some people say Blue is ugly, and we’ll always have new photos of her thanks to the paps, so covering up her face doesn’t make any sense. It won’t make the haters keep quiet. Just keep her out of the pics altogether!

UsWeekly reports “In images from backstage at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, the tiny tot is  wearing a red and black plaid skirt and a Magna Carter World Tour  sweatshirt in support of her father’s current tour.

Beyonce also posted a photo wearing an “IV” ring. The Roman numeral, which  represents the number four, is very important to the family. Beyonce, Jay Z, and  the “Diva” singer’s mother Tina Knowles were all born on the  fourth and that’s also where Blue’s middle name comes from.” Who knew?!

Beyonce and Jay-Z: Drunk in Love at 2014 Grammys

by on

It was reported that Beyoncé and Jay-Z would be performing together at the 2014 Grammys. The power couple rarely performs together, but they shocked everyone by opening the show. The Carters ha’ve finally begun showing PDA and Beyoncé has finally shed her good girl image and has been making sexier songs and videos.

Beyoncé cut her hair and she’s been wearing a bob wig ever since. Many people didn’t like that her hair looked wet at the Grammys, but I think it made her look even sexier. We’ve seen her in her long blonde weaves forever and I like that she’s changed it up… Now to Bey’s outfit. She looks great! Like, I swear her body looks better today than it did years ago.

Beyonce Shares Blue Ivy Pictures, New Year’s Eve Photos

by on

Beyonce showed her Tumblr followers just what she got up to during the holidays and on her daughter Blue Ivy’s 2nd birthday.

 Blue Ivy 2014 photo Blue Ivy Carter and Beyonce 2014

The superstar dressed up to the nines for the NYE celebrations where she can seen in a slinky black and gold number with hubby Jay-Z and a host of unknown faces. With the glitzy location in a Versace mansion in Miami, the stylish guests and the unposed shots it gave the impression that her life in one perpetual glamorous fashion shoot, which it probably is.

Blue Ivy’s bday party was thankfully more low key, Bey and her daughter both wore face paint with Blue looking cute in a ‘birthday girl’ crown. The star was joined by her ex-Destiny’s Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams at the event.

Beyonce claims to be a private person, but I’ve seen more snaps of her life in the last few months than I have of my own family. I can never resist a chance to sneak a peak into the lives of the rich and famous so I’m not complaining.

Beyonce Writes Essay About Gender Equality for The Shriver Report

by on

Beyoncé penned an essay for Maria Shriver’s column, The Shriver Report and it’s titled “Gender Equality is a Myth!” Sigh. The Shriver Report aims to advance the economic power of women, women in the workplace, and looks at how political and financial institutions impact women.

 Beyonce in the kitchen

This is Beyoncé’s essay:

We need to stop buying into the myth about gender equality. It isn’t a reality yet. Today, women make up half of the U.S. workforce, but the average working woman earns only 77 percent of what the average working man makes. But unless women and men both say this is unacceptable, things will not change. Men have to demand that their wives, daughters, mothers, and sisters earn more—commensurate with their qualifications and not their gender. Equality will be achieved when men and women are granted equal pay and equal respect.

Humanity requires both men and women, and we are equally important and need one another. So why are we viewed as less than equal? These old attitudes are drilled into us from the very beginning. We have to teach our boys the rules of equality and respect, so that as they grow up, gender equality becomes a natural way of life. And we have to teach our girls that they can reach as high as humanly possible.

We have a lot of work to do, but we can get there if we work together. Women are more than 50 percent of the population and more than 50 percent of voters. We must demand that we all receive 100 percent of the opportunities.

* Eh. Many people are claiming that Bey didn’t write this because she can barely speak English. But this essay sounds like something an 8th grader would write and it’s about as deep as a backyard kiddie pool in the winter. I think Beyoncé wrote this and I think it took her like a month to do so. She should have just let Jay-Z write it.

And if Blue Ivy‘s mom is passionate about this issue, she should… I don’t know, further the cause and elevate the discussion by supporting more organizations that help women. But the Carters aren’t philanthropic. They completely waste their celebrity status.

Beyonce Lost 65 Pounds After Pregnancy

by on

Beyoncé dropped her self-titled new album and she published a billion accompanying videos with the project. B has a new YouTube mini-documentary called “Liberation” where she speaks about gaining and losing 65 pounds from being pregnant with Blue Ivy.

Beyonce-dress-Album-Screening-and-party-2[1]

This story went viral, so here are some quotes:

“I was very aware of the fact that I was showing my body [in her sexy new music videos]. I was 195 pounds when I gave birth. I lost 65 pounds. I worked crazily to get my body back. I wanted to show my body. I wanted to show that you can have a child and you can work hard and you can get your body back.

“I know that there’s so many women that feel the same thing after they give birth. You can have your child and you can still have fun and still be sexy and still have dreams and still live for yourself. I don’t have any shame about being sexual. I’m not embarrassed about it, and I don’t feel like I have to protect that side of me because I do believe that sexuality is a power we all have.”

It always cracks me up how Bey tries to make everything out to be so much deeper and symbolic than it ever is or ever will be. She lost weight because she’s paid to remain thin and sexy.

She’s used to everyone praising her for being hot, so she’d do whatever it takes to slim down. Yonce also has trainers and chefs and she’s been “showing” her body for nearly two decades now. This is nothing new B. That has sh!t to do with quickly losing the baby weight.

Beyonce and Jay-Z spend $6,000 On Sex Toys

by on

Jay-Z and Beyonce never miss an opportunity to let the world know that they like nothing better than getting their freak on at any opportunity.

beyonce-jay-z-drunk-in-love-highlight[1]

The pair reportedly spent a whopping $6,000 on sex toys when they visited a sex shop in New York. The stars were rumored to have bought the items from Babeland, a sex shop in Lower Manhattan according to RadarOnline.

They apparently headed out on Boxing Day, so I’m sure like other couples they figured that the best way to relieve the stress of Christmas was by getting busy (*cough, cough*) until the new year. Yet according to a source close to the website, the superstars didn’t buy anything crazy.

“They didn’t buy anything tacky or too extreme. It was all top-of-the-line stuff. Some of it was even gold-plated!” Hmm, I guess they save that raunchy stuff at the store for Rihanna… Beyonce sure has been getting even more kinky than usual lately, showing lots of skin in her new music videos “Drunk in Love,” “Rocket” and “Partition.”

Her visual album also includes some very racy lyrics indeed, for example, in “Blow” she

“Keep me coming…Keep me humming, keep me moaning…/ Don’t stop loving ‘til the morning…/  Can you lick my skittles?/  That’s the sweetest in the middle/  Pink that’s the flavor/  Solve the riddle…/  I can’t wait til I get home so you can turn that cherry out”

I guess it’s nice that couple is still managing to keep the spark going after all these years together. I just wish they’d keep that stuff in the bedroom and not rub it in our faces. I do not need to be picturing Jay-Z in that way…

Beyonce Takes Over Walmart, Gives Away $50 Gift Certificates

by on

Pictures of strange people shopping at Walmart can be found all over the internet with a quick Google search. So I’m guessing that if you shop there you’re pretty much used to seeing everything – yet even the desensitized shoppers of the Tewksbury, Massachusetts branch looked surprised when superstar Beyonce walked into their store.

 

On Friday, the singer decided to pop into the shop and spread some Christmas cheer to the starstruck crowd. In the pictures, taken from Bey’s Facebook page, Mrs Carter can be seen browsing the aisles with her shopping trolley, checking out her latest album and generally doing her best to look like one of us normal folk.

Apart from the fact that she was dressed like a mega star in her aqua green dress, leather jacket and perfectly curled blonde weave. The ‘Drunk in Love’ singer found time to make friends with a little girl whose parents must have been shopping at the store and make an announcement to the crowd via the telephone system.

Well that’s one way to plug your new album…

The star was also clearly in the giving mood of season as she left a $50 Walmart gift card for everyone in store with a message reading: “Happy Holidays from Beyonce”. How sweet, but where was she when I was doing my Xmas shopping?

Beyonce Sells Nearly 1 Million Copies of Surprise Album – in 3 Days

by on

Beyoncé dropped her new album at midnight on Instagram by posting a photo that said “Beyonce” with the caption “SURPRISE!” Dassit. SMH. Bey had no promotion whatsoever and her album has already sold 828,773 albums and counting.

Beyonce bikini bottoms Beyonce sexy legs

The new disc is no.1 in 104 countries and is officially the fastest-selling album on iTunes ever. Blue Ivy‘s mom’s album comes with 17 music videos and 14 new songs. Jay-Z, Drake and Frank Ocean are featured on the record. I still haven’t downloaded Beyoncé’s new CD or watched any of the videos. I’m totally overwhelmed, tbh. It’s the holidays right now! How am I supposed to find the friggin’ time?!

I think that Bey’s ability to keep her private life private and share certain moments with her fans is what keeps fans wanting more! She doesn’t overexpose herself, she isn’t a Twitter addict, she doesn’t give many interviews (thank gawd), and she puts out good music. She does everything right when it comes to her career. Which is why she can justifiably tell us to “Bow down bitches!”
