Alicia Keys recently stopped by Wendy Williams’ daytime talk show to dish on her husband Swizz Beatz and how their son Egypt may have a thing for Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s daughter, Blue Ivy. According to the “Girl On Fire” singer, Egypt got in a little trouble with Blue’s hip-hop mogul father for kissing her during a visit to the Carter family’s Tribeca home. Check out the entire interview in the video below.
Last night before the premiere of her documentary Life Is But A Dream, the OWN network aired Beyoncé’s recent sit-down with Oprah Winfrey on Oprah’s Next Chapter. Just in case you missed it, you can watch the full episode below.
An image from Beyoncé’s film, Life Is But A Dream, that shows the 31-year-old music superstar holding her and Jay-Z’s adorable daughter hit the Internet on Friday. The documentary premieres Saturday night (February 16) on HBO at 9 pm. Check out cute as a button Blue below.
A day before shutting the Superdome down in New Orleans during halftime of the Super Bowl, Beyoncé sat down with the hosts of the NFL Network’s Super Bowl Live show to dish on what fans could expect from her performance. The music superstar also gushed about her husband, Jay-Z, and their 1-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy. Calling Jay “incredible” and “so supportive”, the 31-year-old said of Blue:
“When I wake up in the morning, the best thing in the world is seeing her face. She’s starting to talk. It’s just such a beautiful time in my life to have a child and every day see something new and see her learn something new.”
Check out Bey’s entire interview in the video below.
Reportedly, Jay-Z and Beyoncé went all out to celebrate their daughter’s first birthday. Hip-hop’s first couple is said to have dropped a hefty $200,000 on a princess-themed party for their über-privileged tot. The price tag includes $95,000 the couple allegedly spend on pink and white roses and a $2,000 cake. According to RadarOnline:
“Toys and gifts for their guests racked up another $30,000.
The truly over-the-top expenditure was for Blue Ivy’s dazzling gift — a spectacular diamond-encrusted Barbie doll that cost $80,000!”
Considering Jay and Bey made $78 million last year, $200,000 is a drop in the bucket for them, but can you imagine what Blue’s sixteenth birthday party is going to look like??? Wow!!
Although he’s often spotted sitting courtside at Brooklyn Nets games, Jay-Z shells out $1 million to have his own chill space at the Barclays Center. According to US Weekly:
“When Beyonce’s husband Jay-Z watches basketball games at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, their daughter, Blue, 12 months, chills downstairs in a nursery!
‘Jay rents a luxurious basement suite for $1 million a year,’ a source says in the new issue of of Us Weekly, on stands now. ‘It has an area for Blue filled with toys.’
Jay’s VIP space — the priciest of 11 spreads for rent (average cost: $550,000) — also serves as an adult playground. ‘It’s all glass with a champagne bar and TV screen,” says the source. ‘Jay lets friends use his digs when he’s not there.'”
A $1 million dollar a year man cave…must be nice!!
A judge has ruled that Jay-Z and Beyonce can’t trademark the name of their daughter, Blue Ivy. Apparently, the A-list couple were beat to the punch by a Boston based company that has been operating under that name since 2009. Jay and Bey wanted to start a baby clothing company using the name.
Beyonce recently had a sit down with Anderson Cooper and revealed just how much the birth of Blue Ivy has changed her life, revealing, “I realized why I was born, and more than anything, all of the things I want to pass on to my child.”
The singer also showcased her socially conscious side during the interview and shared how it felt to be a part of World Humanitarian Day, explaining that her daughter was one of the many reasons she became involved with the cause. It’s great to see how positively motherhood has impacted Beyonce, and hopefully, Blue Ivy will grow up to be just as strong of a woman!
Although he’s a successful millionaire businessman, Jay-Z is like anyone else when it comes to spending time with his baby girl. A prolific recording artist since the early 90s, the hip-hop superstar has decided to take a break from recording to “hang out” with his 4-month-old daughter, Blue Ivy. He told Billboard earlier this week:
“I thought I would be more inspired to have all these new feelings to talk about, but I really just want to hang out with my daughter.”
Jay is not sure when he’ll return to the studio, but he’s sure the need to record will come back to him sometime down the line. He added:
“I want to enjoy this time for what it is. I’m sure that bug to get back in the studio will come back at some point.”
It’s not like he needs the money. Last month, Forbes released its annual ‘Wealthiest Hip-Hop Artists’ list with Jay in second place with a net worth of $460 million. According to the mag, Jay boasts an impressive portfolio, including shares in the New Jersey Nets as well as input in fashion, music, and restaurant businesses. Hell, in the future, Blue Ivy will have plenty of time to spend with her own kids since her father’s wealth alone guarantees she won’t have to work a damn day in her life!!
Beyoncé Knowles’ first Mother’s Day as a mother is going to be super special if her own mother, Tina, has anything to do with it. Earlier this week, the matriarch of the Knowles family gushed to US Weekly about the importance of the day, saying:
“[We’re] all going to be together. We’re excited because it’s Beyonce’s first Mother’s Day.”
As for what the family has planned for the big day, Tina said:
“I’m hoping to cook! I want to cook. My traditional soul food and maybe gumbo. That’s my favorite dish!”
We’re sure Jay has one helluva Mother’s Day present in store for Bey!!
Many conspiracy theories dogged Beyonce during her pregnancy with now 3-month-old Blue Ivy Carter, including allegations that her baby bump was fake. Fuel was added to the fake baby bump fire when her belly appeared to collapse on an Australian talk show back in October. With the exception of an interview with Katie Couric late last year, the music superstar remained pretty much mum on the topic throughout her pregnancy and since then. But in her interview with PEOPLE for the mag’s World’s Most Beautiful issue (in which she was named World’s Most Beautiful Woman), Mrs. Jay-Z addressed the hoopla surrounding what should have been the happiest time of her life. She said of the rumors:
“That was crazy. It wasn’t hurtful, it was just crazy [I thought] ‘Where did they come up with this?’”
Addressing the incident on the Australian talk show, Beyonce said:
“It was a fabric that folded — does fabric not fold? Oh my gosh, so stupid.”
As for how she dealt with the rumors, Beyonce said:
“There was so much love and well wishes from all over the world — it made it easier to deal with the stupid rumors.”
Now that Blue Ivy is here, conspiracy theorists are saying that she’s carrying around a doll in the baby sling she’s been photographed wearing. We’ve pretty much concluded that even if she presented the world with a DNA test and the doctor that delivered Blue, people would still have something to say.
Congrats to Beyonce who has been named the ‘Most Beautiful Woman In The World’ by PEOPLE in their annual ‘World’s Most Beautiful’ issue. In her interview with the mag, the music superstar can’t help but gush about her baby girl, Blue Ivy. She said:
“She’s just the cutest thing. She looks like Blue. She’s her own person.”
The issue hits newsstands Friday, April 27. Check out Bey’s PEOPLE cover below:
Although their daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, is a mere 3 months old, Beyonce and Jay-Z may already be working on baby number 2!! A source told Star magazine:
“They see no reason to wait. Beyonce has said giving birth and dropping the baby weight was far easier than she thought. Everyone in their circle is saying that another baby could be on the way before you know it.”
Reportedly, Beyonce and Jay-Z’s goal of having another baby is the reason behind the couple’s recent jaunt to the island of St. Barts, where they celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary and enjoyed some family time with Blue Ivy. The duo is said to be very focused on getting pregnant again and aren’t wasting any time because of their struggle with conceiving the first time around. A source said:
“It took them awhile to conceive Blue Ivy, so they don’t want to waste another second.”
Not to mention Jay’s age (42) – pretty soon, he’s not going to feel like changing diapers and waking up in the middle of the night to the sound of a screaming newborn. Whatever their reason, we hope they succeed in getting pregnant soon. It’s obvious they make great parents!!
