In case your friends posting all over Instagram and Facebook this weekend about how Beyoncé changed their lives didn’t give you a hint, Queen B turned 36 yesterday. She managed to snatch the Labor Day focus off BBQ and summertime sadness, and onto herself for the highest holiday in the Beyhive’s calendar.
But Bey’s day wasn’t celebrated how us normal folks might do. We have happy hour margaritas and inevitable tears about accomplishing jack shit. Beyoncé has Michelle Obama dressing up in a Beyonce costume for an artistic photo shoot. Continue reading
Rumi and Sir Knowles-Carter are the twin deities that sprang forth from the blessed womb of Beyonce back in June. As all things concerning Queen Bey and her consort Jay-Z are, the meaning of the twins’ names is vitally important! Their eldest daughter, five-year-old Blue Ivy, was obviously named after plants and colors. I kid; Blue was inspired by a Rebecca Solnit poem, and Ivy is supposedly a riff on the Roman numeral IV. The number four is a big deal for the Carters, in regards to birth dates and anniversaries and album titles and what have you. But what’s the deal with daughter Rumi’s name? And did Bey and Jay merely want the servants addressing their son Sir properly from the jump? The second part of Jay-Z’s interview with the Rap Radar podcast (via Us Weekly) revealed all!
For awhile now, Jay-Z and Kanye West’s friendship situation has been reminiscent of that friendship you have with that one person that you like but is always causing a problem in a public setting. Either they have a personality issue, or they can’t hold their booze, or they temporarily claim allegiance to the stupid and problematic. You’re loyal to them but you can only drag them out of so many parties before they’re thrown out and have to make sure they’re not going to murder the Uber driver so many times.
That’s what Hova and Yeeszus’ relationship was like for awhile. That was until Kanye’s meltdown late last year when he talked a lot of ish about Jay. What tipped the scales for Jay was when Kanye started in on his wife and child, Empress Beyonce and Blue “The Messiah” Ivy, during a show in Sacramento.
Most five-year-olds spend their days playing with toys, watching cartoons, scheming new sneaky ways to get their hands on sugar, and battling their arch nemesis – shoelaces. But Blue Ivy Carter isn’t your average five-year-old. For one thing, she’s the type of rich that means she doesn’t have to deal with tying her shoes (she probably has a robot to do that for her). She’s also the daughter of two very famous entertainers, which means it would only be a matter of time before she debuted her skills on one of her parent’s albums.
Beyonce and Jay Z have been trying to trademark the name Blue Ivy ever since Blue Ivy Carter came into this world five years ago, and the key word is “trying.”
Universal empress, Beyonce, wants to trademark her daughter Blue Ivy Carter’s name, but some paltry wedding planning company with the same name keeps trying to prevent her from doing so. That wedding planner better have reinforced steel doors, a full security camera set-up, and a panic room behind the Jordan Almonds station, because the Beyhive doesn’t play. They will stage a commando raid on some peasant wedding planners for their exalted and most high queen.
