Majestrix of the multiverse and future Nala Beyonce did hip-hop legend and recent robbery suspect Lil’ Kim a solid by dressing up as her on Halloween. She posted shots of her costumes on Instagram and on her own website with the caption: “Hip Hop would not be the same without our original Queen B.” Beyonce’s got 107 million followers on IG, which means there’s probably going to be a renewed interest in the Queen Bee! A whole new generation will learn about Kim’s ability to make “a Sprite can“ disappear in her mouth! By the way, that move’s not for amateurs. They had to call the paramedics. I don’t want to talk about it.
Scarlett Johansson and kissing companion Colin Jost were officially seen officially out in public together , officially, at a Saturday Night Live after party this past weekend. (Seen above: Thrilling pics of them arriving to the party separately.) We know it’s official now because last month at The Emmy’s, Colin told Entertainment Tonight that he was officially dating a blond woman who fit the description. So I guess that makes it officially official!
When you’re a true ORIGINAL rap mogul like Jay-Z, you don’t want to be some poser, so taking a page from the Beyoncé playbook and performing the halftime show at the Super Bowl isn’t going to cut it. Leave that kinda shit to Kanye West. He needs the check! CBS Sports says Jay turned down an invite to perform at Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis. Poor Super Bowl is going to head to happy hour early tonight to drown its sorrows from all the rejection. First Adele passed it over last year, and now they can’t get Jay.
Just when things between Kanye West and Jay-Z looked frostier than the Night King’s panties on Game of Thrones, it appears the rappers are ready to let bygones be bygones and get back to their favorite activity: making a shitload of cash.
A source, who presumably went by the name of Tris Brenner, told TMZ that Kanye has reached out to Jay-Z to settle their shit. Yeezy ditched Jay-Z’s Tidal streaming service because he claimed the company owed him more than $3 million. That, and he was probably weirded out by Madonna’s antics when they reenacted the signing of the Declaration of Independence at its launch. Benjamin Franklin did NOT throw his leg up on the table like that, so why did Madge think she could?!
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!
While he won’t be inviting Kanye West over anytime soon for afternoon high tea (which really just involves sipping Hennessy and chowing down on crustless sandwiches while Beyonce walks around the pool doing vocal runs), Jay-Z finally opened up about that elevator throwdown back in 2014 with Solange Knowles. Surprisingly, it wasn’t to break down Bey’s “Flawless” remix to say “Of that billion dollars in the elevator, Solange represented somewhere around $40 and a Duane-Reade gift card.”
