“A 27-year old Beyonce or a 17-year old Rihanna? Not today, Satan. Not today.” – Jay Z
I don’t know anybody who uses Tidal, but Beyonce wore this dress to the TIDAL X: 1020 at Barclays Center event last night I guess to make people write the word “Tidal” today. Even though she’s 37, I think this is still pretty good marketing. I mean, it was either this or Madonna. It’s too early for Madonna. Halloween is like 10 days away.
Beyonce‘s father, Matthew Knowles, was on Power 105.1FM’s The Breakfast Club this morning, where he told a story about LA Reid’s girl group he formed in Atlanta in 1995 (Pink was the lead singer). Then he said this. It’s unclear at the time if the BeyHive has armed guards positioned outside Wikipedia.
“How can we get single white women to buy a ticket to the next movie? It’s simple, cast The Beyonce.” – Marvel
Producers want her to join the cast of The Avengers after the success of new episode Age Of Ultron, which took £1.1billion at the box office in six weeks. They believe Bey, 33, could add millions of fans if she starred alongside Scarlett Johansson, who plays Black Widow, and Elizabeth Olsen as the Scarlet Witch. Two sequels – The Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2 – are scheduled for release in 2018 and 2019, with spin-off films also in the works. A senior executive at movie distributor Disney said: “We would love to have Beyoncé on board, almost certainly as a newcomer to the screen from Marvel’s existing catalogue of comic book characters.”
Not sure what character in a tight outfit she would play, but I’m pretty excited for the scene where she loses a fight and Kanye shows up to explain why she should have won despite the fact the winner knows how to use like 10 different weapons.
Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen, The Khaleesi, Mother of Dragons, Hot Ass Piece) is on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar, and in the interview she said she doesn’t have any of the dragon eggs because Jay Z bought one for Beyonce. I guess she couldn’t afford the other two.
She admits to trying to “blag” one of Khaleesi’s dragon eggs (which birthed three now poorly behaved teenage dragons), to no avail. “Apparently Jay Z bought one for Beyoncé, or something,” she laughs. “I don’t know.” No eggs reside in the Clarke residence because “they are really, really, really expensive and they are really fucking heavy and serious works of art.” Like Fabergé? “Eggs-actly! Eggs-cellent!”
PLOT TWIST: Beyonce is now a surrogate and Kanye probably thinks he’s the real father.
Yay! Blue Ivy has a 21-year old big brother! How exciting!
Jay Z has been blasted with a paternity suit that claims he blatantly lied to a New Jersey court to avoid taking a DNA test that could prove he’s the father of a secret love child — who is now 21 years old, according to legal documents. Rymir Satterthwaite alleges that his mother, Wanda, hooked up with the 45-year-old rapper and entrepreneur in the early 1990s and the two engaged in numerous sex romps before Shawn Corey Carter had become the megastar he is today, the National Enquirer reports. Acting through legal guardian and paralegal Lillie Coley, Satterthwaite filed a civil lawsuit in December 2014 in which he accused Jay Z of lying in court when he tried to weasel out of taking a paternity test. Satterthwaite has been fighting to get Jay Z to take the test since 2010, when Wanda took the entertainer to court after it was declared that another man in question was not the father.
If he knows he’s not the father, then taking a paternity test would prove it. Waiting four years just proves he’s kinda waiting for a freak accident or an act of the Illuminati so he doesn’t have to worry about it anymore. As a man, I appreciate his talent to tune this whole thing out, but maybe his son likes truffles and Gwyneth Paltrow movies as well. They could have a lot of things in common.
Kanye West performed twice at the 2015 Grammys last night. The first time, he told a ghost story in a velvet track assistant basketball coach suit. The second time, he performed a song where Sir Paul McCartney, one of the biggest influences in the history of pop music, had to sing the word “wildin'” on national television. You’d think that would have been enough Snickers for Kanye’s ego, but then Beck‘s Morning Phase won AOTY. When Beck went on stage to accept his award (also, Beck was surprised he won, but for the exact opposite reason everybody else did), Kanye walked on stage, but was unable to say anything, because Prince is magical and created a force field around Beck forcing Kanye to sit his dumb ass down. The came the E! aftershow:
“I just know that the Grammys, if they want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us. We ain’t gonna play with them no more. And Beck needs to respect artistry and he should’ve given his award to Beyoncé. Because when you keep on diminishing art and not respecting the craft and smacking people in their face after they deliver monumental feats of music, you’re disrespectful to inspiration. And we as musicians have to inspire people who go to work every day, and they listen to that Beyoncé album and they feel like it takes them to another place. Then they do this whole promotional event, they’ll run the music over somebody’s speech, the artist, because they want commercial advertising. Like, no, we not playing with them no more. By the way, I got my wife, my daughter and my clothing line, so I’m not going to do nothing to put my daughter at risk but I am here to fight for creativity. That’s the reason why I didn’t say anything tonight. But you all know what it meant when ‘Ye walks on the stage.“
Okay, let’s not pretend here. Kanye will be sitting at the Grammys when his 80, because his entire existence is entirely based on the amount of gold trophies his gets. If he doesn’t win a Grammy for tying his shoes, mankind has failed in Kanye’s mind. Second, ever single track on Morning Phase is great. Hate to break it to you. So if you want to protect artistry, then you clap when Beck wins his award. Beck isn’t Mackelmore. If you don’t know who Beck is, that says more about you than it does it about him, so I’m sorry your music choices are limited to what radio stations tell you. And if we can really sit here and call “7/11” a “monumental feat of music”, the alien invasion can’t come soon enough. Beyonce wasn’t robbed, she just lost. If you want to feel bad for somebody for being robbed, Ledisi was suppose to perform ““Precious Lord, Take My Hand” (the gospel track she performed for Selma) and got bumped because Beyonce said, “nah bitch”. Beck sings and performs his own songs. Just wanted to throw that out there. In closing, I honestly hope Kanye keeps walking on stage when he’s throwing a tantrum, because one day he’s gonna walk up on the wrong person and get his jaw wired shut again. Fuck Kanye is really all I’m trying to say here.
Beyonce posted a bunch of pictures on Tumblr yesterday, including this one where she’s wearing something that says, “99 Problems But My Ass Ain’t 1”, but we can all assume that one of the problems is not knowing how to effectively use Photoshop. Because instead of going to see Interstellar to experience Einstein’s Curvature of Space, you can just look at those curtains. And, like, what’s going on with her vagina? Did her water just break in these pictures? Is she at a hospital right now? She might want to go to a hospital. That looks kinda painful.
The “On The Run” HBO Concert event got hyped more Tim Tebow and chicks with bangs, but apparently people like college football and a show about nerds more. Sorry, Bey. (via ONTD)
Beyonce and Jay-Z’s MUCH hyped HBO concert special was a ratings FLOP on Saturday night. The special drew UNDER 900,000 viewers and didn’t even make the Top 20 cable shows of the evening …..
So what were all the feminists watching on the 20th? Was HelloGiggles having some sort of webinar about how to be kind to yourself or how to make a playlist that will make you stop all the negative self-talk? Probably a lot of TLC and Michelle Branch.
Beyonce’s dad, Matthew Knowles, knocked up a 30-year real estate agent back in 2010. The child support is not in escrow.
Back in July, a 30-year-old Texas woman named TaQoya Branscomb (Ed’s note: Key and Peele football name) filed a paternity lawsuit against Mathew Knowles claiming that he got her pregnant back in 2010 and is the father of her daughter. The model turned real estate agent also requested that when the DNA results came back, she wanted Mathew to not only pay child support but to foot the bill for her attorney fees. Well, Matty better pull out his checkbook because a DNA test proved with 99.998 percent certainty that he IS the father (in my Maury Povich voice). The only issue is that TaQoya might have some trouble actually getting any money from Mathew since Alexsandra Wright, the woman who is the mother to his 4-year-old son, has had plenty of problems of her own with the courts. Mathew claims that since he stopped working as Beyoncé’s manager, he’s broke as a joke so he can’t pay child support. Mathew gives the phrase “papa was a rolling stone” an entirely new meaning. Are there any more Knowles children floating around out there?
Awww, that’s cute. Blue Ivy has an aunt that’s close to her age, so she can grow up not knowing she ever existed. What a touching story this has turned out to be.
