Beyoncé and Jay-Z are expecting their second child, according to E! News.
The news comes right at the heels of the singer cancelling a tour date in Antwerp, Belgium citing “dehydration and exhaustion” as the culprit. Rumours of Beyoncé’s third pregnancy (her first resulted in a miscarriage which was first revealed in her HBO documentary) first began swirling earlier this month when she walked down the MET Gala red carpet in a high-waisted Givenchy dress with possibly figure-hiding pattern.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z already have one child together, 16-month-old Blue Ivy Carter.
Beyoncé’s back with a new collaboration and as usual she does no wrong. In this clip of The-Dreams new song “Turnt,” Beyoncé flawlessly lends her voice to the chorus. Rapper 2 Chainz also lends his talents to the track. The song is super catchy and just with this clip, its beat will be stuck in your head. The track is the first single off of The-Dreams latest album IV Play, which will be released later this month on May 28.

Before there was Katy Perry and Justin Bieber, there was a pre-Nipple Gate Janet Jackson and Shaggy. Yes folks, we’ll be taking you back to the good ol’ days of 2001.
Warning: the music you are about to hear is not exactly my favourite nor is it possibly yours, but they were all the shit at one point of another. Let’s face it: we probably all own the CDs and the songs will probably be stuck in your head all week. SorryNotSorry.
“It Wasn’t Me” By Shaggy
Not only was this song impossible to get out of your head, it’s about cheating and trying to lie your way out of it! Not cool, Shaggy! It stayed at number 1 for two weeks.
“Ms. Jackson” by OutKast
Actually, this is one song from 2001 that should have a permanent place in your favourite iTunes playlist.
Butterfly by CrazyTown
This song was huge and I’m guilty I liked it. Listening to it now makes me hate it. Does that ever happen to you?
Step aside, Jay-Z. If Bey is the Queen, then this man is the King.
It’s one thing to cover Beyonce. It’s another to take all of her best songs, combine them in a perfectly arranged acapella mash-up, and then sing it as a duet…with YOURSELF. Sound too good to be true? Well, clearly you’ve never been privy to the talent that is Cameron J.
There truly are no words for this. Just watch in total shock and awe with your mouth dangling open and try to control the drool.
Dang, this pup has better moves than me!
Dancing along to Eminem’s “Shake That”, this dog takes booty shaking to another level. In fact, I think he’s SO GOOD that he could even compete with Beyonce.
Shake on, dawgy dog!
We as a public talk a lot about how perfect (or imperfect) a celebrity’s hair, body, skin or style is. As weird as it is, we don’t often talk about people’s eyebrows.
This makes sense considering the eyebrows are secondary to the eyes – who really pays attention to eyebrows anyways? As long as you don’t have a unibrow, you are generally good.
However, this does not mean eyebrows are not important – the people with awesome eyebrows deserve to be noticed. Eyebrows really have the potential to frame or compliment a face. It could also make you some money, especially if you’re NBA player Anthony Davis who trademarked his famous unibrow.
What makes a good set of eyebrows, you wonder? Well, thickness, neatness, and general shape. So who has some beautiful eyebrows to lust after?
HERE ARE 17 CELEBS WHO ANDPOP THINK HAS THE BEST EYEBROWS:

Beyonce has banned outside photographers from her Mrs. Carter Show world tour and wants to give publications “pre-approved” images provided by her management. Like that’ll stop people from taking derby photographs of her performing. I think she’s forgetting she’s living in the era of social media, in which she has zero control over. Instagram was flooded with not-so-glamourous images from the tour. And after viewing some of them, we can see why she’s desperately wanting to control her image. Guess she’s just as insecure as the average folk. Poor Bey!
“Back to Black” – Beyonce and Andre 3000
Amy Winehouse fans will hardly recognize this cover of “Back to Black” by hip hop powerhouses Beyonce and Andre 3000, which will appear in the Great Gatsby soundtrack. The cover still has the same melancholy feel that Winehouse’s had but this version twists the original with a haunting synth line. Andre 3000’s vocals are deep, sensual and completely opposite from anything he’s done for Outkast. Of course, Queen Bey is perfect as always.
“Your Life is a Lie” – MGMT
MGMT is currently on the road, and have been surprising fans with new music. The latest track to be debuted is “Your Life is a Lie,” a nice little psychedelic-rock gem that with smooth, dark vocals. The sample’s quality isn’t the greatest but it’ll be enough to keep MGMT fans going until the studio version is released.
“Run and Kill” – Sia
Is it any surprise that the Great Gatsby’s star studded soundtrack would also include Australian pop star Sia? While the songstress is well known for her collabs with house DJ David Guetta, “Kill and Run” is solo Sia, with breathy vocals and a toned down piano backing her beautiful voice.
“Together” – the xx
We can’t seem to get enough of the Great Gatsby’s upcoming soundtrack, so here’s another track off it, by English indie pop band the xx. The track is dark, dramatic, haunting, moody and fully embodies Gatsby’s spiral out of control. Minimal instrumentation frames singers Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sim’s quiet vocals perfectly.
“Call on Me” – Kelis
Kelis’ new track is completely different from anything she’s released so far. Produced by TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek, “Call on Me” has a great pop-African beat with tribal drums, trumpets, and a funky bass line. The track will transport you straight back to the 70s with its vintage feel and Kelis does great expanding her boundaries past dance pop tracks.
Beyonce’s cover of Amy Winhouse’s “Back To Black” for The Great Gatsby dropped yesterday. Today, a cover of Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love” was released today. It’s Beyoncé-ption.
Recorded by Emeli Sandé and the Bryan Ferry Orchestra, the cover puts its own unique spin on the song with its jazzy take. It’ll sound great on screen as a backdrop to the films anticipated party and dramatic scenes.
It is safe to say that the soundtrack for The Great Gatsby is the most highly anticipated soundtrack of the year. With tracks by Fergie and Lana Del Rey amongst many other huge names, this Jay-Z produced soundtrack will explode once it’s out on May 7.
LISTEN TO CRAZY IN LOVE HERE:
After hearing snippets of The Great Gatsby’s soundtrack in the trailers, the full studio recording of Andre 3000 and Beyonce’s “Back To Black” cover is now out! In case the track doesn’t make it clear with its irritating radio mark playing overtop the recording floating around the internet, the song premiered on EastVillage.com’s radio station.
When you are covering a song made iconic by a talent as tremendous as Amy Winehouse, it is difficult to live up to expectation – something the two cover artists have learned the hard way.
While the song hasn’t exactly been getting glowing reviews so far, I think Beyonce deserves some kudos for taking on a difficult song. Her soulful voice is well suited for the famous Amy Winehouse song. On the other hand, the production of the song falters as Andre 3000′s intro sounds very forced and the arrangements sound to over-done. It’s unfortunately the result of trying to introduce new and unique arrangements, and which ultimately doesn’t help to showcase André 3000′s talents.
It could be better, but it could be worse. The attempt was made. While it’s disappointing that a track so many were excited for failed to meet expectations, we can still look forward to Lana Del Rey’s contribute to the highly anticipated soundtrack.
Listen to the Andre 3000 and Beyonce cover of “Back To Black”:
For a one year baby, Blue Ivy Carter is probably one of the most elusive celebrities. The public only caught a glimpse of Beyoncé and Jay Z’s famous offspring when Beyoncé made the decision to include the famous tot in her HBO documentary Life Is But A Dream. Since then, it’s been quiet on the Blue Ivy front until now.
The one-year-old was in Paris with her musical parents. It’s hard to tell which of the two she looks like the most because from one angle, she looks exactly like Hova but like a young Beyoncé in another. D’awwww.
Drake has a new song and it’s called “Girls Love Beyoncé” (featuring James Fauntleory who sings “Say My Name” as the hook).
Oh, dammit. Ladies, Drake knows. He knows our secret. He knows that we all love Beyoncé and with that knowledge, he know must carry the heavy burden of knowing all of our complex secrets. Next time we all congregate, we need to make a new secret and this time, we have to keep it on the down low. I’m looking at you, Sasha Fierce.
LISTEN TO “GIRLS LOVE BEYONCE” BY DRAKE FEAT. JAMES FAUNTLEORY BELOW:
Beyoncé faces some fierce competition from herself in this new Pepsi commercial.
The world’s favourite diva dresses up as the many version of herself (including “Bootylicious” Beyoncé, “Sasha Fierce” and “Crazy in Love” Beyoncé) and has a dance off. The commercial also gives us a little sneak peek into a new song called “Mirrors,” which is obviously being begged to be compared to (and possible mashed up with) the Justin Timberlake song with the same name despite the differences in style.
Justin Bieber is having a crazy time right now. March started with a wild and shirtless 19th birthday party in London which apparently turned out to be the worst birthday ever, he collapsed on stage, he hit a paparazzo, got dissed by his ex Selena, and then got his pet monkey confiscated! That last one sounds unreal, like when did J-Biebs get a monkey anyway?!
Hopefully the month of April will be a turning point for Justin and it’s already off to a good start with the release of his duel Teen Vogue covers for the magazine’s May issue. Judge which cover you like best.
But Justin isn’t the only celebrity who gets to celebrate scoring a magazine cover. April may have just started but the magazine industry is already busting out its May issues.
So check out who also landed themselves a cover and find out which celeb will rule the newsstand!
Who says Fifth Harmony can’t harmonize?!!
Proving just how much they improved since placing third on X Factor, the quintet put all their naysayers in their place when they covered One Direction’s “They Don’t Know About Us”.
But making the version their own, there’s a special twist in the song. Adding in a hook from Beyonce’s “Party”, it’s safe to say these girls are going to be killin’ it in the future!
Watch the video here:
it’s turning out that 2013 is indeed Beyoncé’s year. A Destiny’s Child reunion, then Super Bowl Half Time show, an HBO documentary, her own meme (courtesy of a bad PR move), a Vogue cover and now a high profile H&M campaign, these are all the reasons why we’re supposed to bow down to Beyoncé, right?
The above photo is just a small peek at the actual ads. The singer looks just as gorgeous as ever sprawled on a beach chair and dressed in very spring and summer appropriate looks which I’m sure the public will eat up once it gets a little warmer (kind of having a little bit of climate envy over here).
According to MTV Style, Beyoncé shot the campaign for the Swedish cheap and chic retailer in the Bahamas earlier this year. H&M will strategically release the full campaign as Queen Bey kicks off her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour on April 15th. The retailer will peg it all as “Beyoncé as Mrs. Carter in H&M.”
Who runs the world? Beyoncé.
We already bowed down to Queen Bey, but the new song (or two, depending how you look at it) she posted on tumblr has her demanding that we never stop bowing down to her royalty.
Her Royal Highness Beyonce says haters should just stop talking about her lip synching scandal and with their criticisms in general, and just to “Bow Down.”
She follows that up with “I Been On.” Both these songs are very tech-heavy, with tons of repetition and special audio effects. While these tracks will most likley not be on my Beyonce playlist or be one of those “Belt it out in the shower” tunes, they will be good dance beats and tracks I will blast to get pumped for a night out.
Beyonce’s done better, but they could be worse. What do you guys think?
First off I just want to say congratulations on your pregnancy. I wish you, Kanye, and baby Kimye all the best!
Now I know this is not the easiest time for you. I can’t speak from first hand experience what it is like to be pregnant (nor will I ever since I was not born with lady parts but that’s besides the point) but I have heard that being with child can do crazy things to your body. Plus you had that recent health scare which must have been really emotionally exhausting to go through.
Also, being technically married to Kris Humphries probably isn’t making your life any easier.
So here’s what I’m proposing: that you take a mental and sartorial time machine back to the time before Kanye and Kris happened to your life. Don’t get it twisted! I’m not saying you need to physically go back in time before you were pregnant. However I think for your mental health you need to go back to a time before all that Kris drama, and then take your wardrobe back in time before Kanye’s stylist overhauled your closet.
I’m sure you’re enjoying going to Paris Fashion Week and hobnobbing with Jay-Z and Beyoncé, but I think it’s safe to say your wardrobe needs to be reset. Like I said in my article on celebrity fashion lines, “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” Kanye might elevate your Hollywood status, but he can’t help you fashion-wise since Anna Wintour still won’t let you attend the Met Ball (a.k.a. the fashion Oscars). Yeah you might be dressing a little more sophisticated and a lot less overtly sexy, but it just seems like a massive personality overhaul as well. Perhaps until Kanye becomes a full fledged and critically praised fashion designer, then you should take his advice.
So here are some evidence of your fashion WTFs since being Kanye-fied:
1. Peplum snake print (?!!) pants
3. Whatever this is:
A new batch of celebrities have fallen victim to yet another hacking scandal.
The site exposed.su has posted the personal financial information of 17 including Jay-Z, Paris Hilton, Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Ashton Kutcher and Mel Gibson, according to the National Post. The site also went beyond the reach of Hollywood and has exposed politicians such as First Lady Michelle Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden. It most recently added entries on Britney Spears and Sarah Palin on Monday.
Most of the information in the “dox” can be found on public record but what’s worrying is that the site was also able to obtain social security numbers. They used that information to access credit reports, loan and mortgage information for nearly all celebrities they have exposed.
Included in the various reports, is a American Express bill issued to Jay Z which shows an outstanding balance of $227,115, a mortgage statement for Kim Kardashian who has a remaining $5.85 million, and a credit score on Paris Hilton (which, by the way, was very good).
Various policing agencies such as the LAPD (who have had their own chief of police exposed in the reports), FBI and credit agencies are all investigating, according to Gawker. There is no apparent motive as of yet.
