Blue Ivy Carter Bid $80,000 On A Pair Of Beyoncé’s Old Earrings At Tina Knowles-Lawson’s Wearable Art Gala
With Alec Baldwin’s career in a precarious position, it’s only right that a new Boss Baby should emerge from the wreckage. At the practically geriatric pediatric age of 10, Blue Ivy Carter is a hair too long in the baby tooth to retain the title, but she is well positioned to be crowned our nation’s premiere Mogul Middlegrader. Blue Ivy, accompanied by her entourage, which includes pop singer Beyoncé and her husband, rapper Jay Z, attended her granny’s little dress-up party over the weekend and made her presence known by bidding $80,000 for a pair of earrings at the 2022 Wearable Art Gala auction. Let one of Elon Musk’s looming babies fight it out with one of Nick Cannon’s predicted progeny for the title of Boss Baby. Blue Ivy is so far ahead of the game that she’ll be retired with a full pension before any of those babies coming up behind her even get a chance to check in with HR for their orientation.
Reports that Brad Pitt and Andra Day were seen “flirting” and exchanged numbers at the Academy Awards ceremony last April were news to Andra Day. Speaking at Entertainment Tonight from last night’s BET awards, Andra had to be reminded that they’d ever even met but complimented him on his beautiful gowns all the same. Yes, not only did Andra win a Golden Globe and get nominated for an Oscar for her portrayal of Billie Holiday, but she also has a killer Aretha Franklin impression in her repertoire. What’s more, she’s also got a serviceable Mariah Carey “I don’t know her” in her toolkit to boot.
Last week, Brad Pitt was temporarily given more time with five of the six Jolie-Pitt children (19-year-old Maddox has aged out) after his long, messy, acrimonious custody battle with Angelina Jolie. Brad was happy about the decision. Angelina, however, is not. Angelina is reportedly still steamed that their custody judge wouldn’t let the kids testify.
If last night’s Oscars ceremony can be summed up in a single image, it’s that of Brad Pitt’s struggle ponytail:

It was confusing, unnecessary, washed out, and honestly, kind of rude. Just like the show, it ended abruptly yet was also way too long. Give us Legends of the Fall locks undulating like a field of wheat in a summer breeze Brad, or give us nothing and keep it moving. Trust me, nobody wants a pinky finger’s worth of hay held together with the twist tie from a bag of Ezekiel bread. Thankfully Brad’s angry inch was outshone by the red carpet which was one of the only saving graces about this year’s ill-conceived mid-pandemic Oscars ceremony.
The Grammys red carpet always looks like an intergalactic space orgy sprinkled with a bunch of random rappers who just rolled out of bed with barely enough time to grab their grill from the bedside table thrown in for good measure. Every year, it’s a mess. Plus you’ve always got legitimate superstars mixed in with a whole lot whosits and whateverhappenedtos. This year’s Grammy red carpet was no exception. I’m trying to sift through some of these looks, and honestly don’t know where to begin.
Note that I left out the word “mess,” as there’s no question that the messiest part of the red carpet was most likely the three square feet of space occupied by Ryan Seacrest.
If there was an award for red carpet fashion that makes you question a stylist’s sanity, Nicole Kidman would be that category’s Meryl Streep. Nicole arrived in an Armani Prive gown that does double duty. From the waist-up she’s very mascot of a sexy frozen fish company, and from the waist down I’m getting a reminder to please separate my plastic recyclables from my paper.
