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.
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?!

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

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.
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.

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.
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…
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?

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.
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!”
Superstar Beyonce certainly isn’t shy when it comes to wearing revealing stage outﬁts and the latest addition to her theatrical wardrobe seems just as skin-bearing as the rest of them.
Beyoncé surprised fans when she released her latest album at midnight on Friday morning. She’s good at keeping secrets and keeping things interesting, whether that’s with her music or her attire. While performing at the United Center in Chicago, Bey showed off a gorgeous jewel encrusted creation.
The star wore a white ﬁtted blazer which was beaded with sparkly jewels and a matching pair of white hot-pants with a similar design. She ﬁnished the look with ﬁshnet tights and a pair of high heeled boots, which were of course, bejeweled as well.
Bey sure knows how to dress her hourglass shape and this outﬁt was no exception as it featured slimming black panels along the side and across her chest. Those jewels must have been more comfortable than they looked as she managed to perform an energetic dance routine in them without any signs of chafﬁng. Phew!
Meanwhile, only Beyonce could drop an album without any promotion whatsoever and make it go to no.1 around the world, which I’m pretty sure it will do – with or without her sparkly knickers. Beyoncé’s new self-titled release has already sold more than 400,000 copies!

Queen B always surprises us with her music videos, but there are always some key elements that will be in there – great dance moves, lots of dramatic hair ﬂicks and of course, good music. So if the teaser to her latest single, “Grown Woman” is anything to go by, she hasn’t let us down with her latest offering.
The video has been removed from YouTube
A dark-haired Bey is seen dancing to the afro-beat style song, wearing lots of colorful outﬁts and generally being fabulous. Her bestie and ex-Destiny’s Child bandmate, Kelly Rowland, also makes a quick cameo in the vid, along with Bey’s mom Tina Knowles.
On the downside, the lyrics are a bit repetitive with Beyonce singing “I’m a grown woman, I can do whatever I want” like a million times.” We get it Bey, you’re grown – good for you! Yet the singer makes up for it with her dancing, showing us just how strong and ﬂexible she is by doing some ﬁerce moves with her backing dancers.
Also, with her amazing body you’d never guess she only gave birth to Blue Ivy a year ago – now she’s just showing off… It also seems like Beyonce is getting a bit more edgy in her dress sense as the video features lots of clothing in unusual patterns and materials.
She even seems to be carrying this trend on in real life as she was recently seen wearing a bizarre pizza-inspired outﬁt on her way to vegan eatery ‘Cafe Gratitude’ in L.A as the couple continue their 22-day vegan challenge.
Could she just be taking a few style tips from Solonge? Or is ‘Hipster Beyonce’ here to stay?
