Although Beyoncé made history at the Grammys many believed she would finally win the coveted Album Of The Year award for her collection of dance spells titled Renaissance. Of course, Harry Styles got it. Now, I haven’t heard his album Harry’s House, but I doubt it’s Renaissance, and many people are shaking tables and sliding down walls in the aftermath of her loss. You can add Jay-Z to that list, who made a statement prior to her loss that hasn’t aged well. But I’m sure if you asked him now he would simply reply with “Fuck The Grammys!” like the rest of the Beyhive.
When most of us recall our adolescent misadventures in parental embarrassment, it’s usually something like our moms washing out Ziploc bags to reuse while friends were over or dad getting snippy with the teen who works at the movie theater concession stand over the price of a large popcorn. If you’re Blue Ivy Carter, it’s when your rap legend father, Jay-Z, dares to show affection to you on camera at the risk of messing up your coiffure when the crowd is alerted that they’ve been graced with your courtside presence.
Jay Z isn’t happy to simply be an iconic rapper, one-time owner of a questionably ethical streaming service, and husband of international superstar Beyoncé. Apparently, Jay Z also wants to be the adjunct professor of his own institution of higher learning. Except he doesn’t have tenure at The Jay Z Academy of Billion Dollar Success. No, Jay Z, along with Twitter founder Jack Dorsey, have founded what they call The Bitcoin Academy.
Jennifer Lopez Says That Co-Headlining The Super Bowl Halftime Show Was “The Worst Idea In The World” In Her Netflix Documentary “Halftime”
Netflix is letting Jennifer Lopez give her fans The Full-Beyonce with Halftime, a new documentary that offers a backstage peek into her creative process while mounting her half of the halftime show she shared with Shakira at the 2020 Super Bowl. Fittingly, JLo wore half a dress at Halftime‘s premiere last night at the 2022 Tribeca Film Festival. People says JLo was “sizzling” in a Tom Ford “curve-hugging black velvet and sheer floor-length gown,” but I think she looks cold. Thankfully, Halftime: The Movie brings the heat. Once inside the screening, JLo was almost certainly warmed by the opportunity to tell Her Truth about having to split stage time with Shakira (she thought it was “the worst idea in the world.”), her “fight to be taken seriously as an artist” and share an inside look at what it’s like finding out you’ve been snubbed for an Oscar.
Drake Brought Robbie Williams’ $70 Million Beverly Hills Mansion And May Have Scoffed At His Ranking Of Top Earning Hip Hop Artists
If making us forget about how much of a pompous silly-billy Drake is was Kanye’s plan all along, well that shit worked! Between Kanye’s recent attention-grabbing, let’s call it “behavior,” and all the oldheads hogging the spotlight at the Super Bowl, poor Aubrey barely has two headlines to rub together. But Drake tried to do a lil sumin sumin’ about that recently by commenting on an Instagram post that reported on a list of the highest-paid hip-hop stars of 2021. *Spoiler Alert* He was not #1.
That little $2 million donation to HBCUs to offset the optics of Beyoncé and Jay-Z embracing the spoils of rampant capitalism in their recent Tiffany and Co. campaign was silly to begin with. And as we know, capitalism and colonialism go hand in hand. So it’s sillier still when you combine the fact that not only did The Carter’s wave a never-before-seen-by-poors Jean-Michel Basquiat painting in people’s faces, Beyoncé was wearing the crown jewel of one of the most unscrupulous industries on earth around her neck. The famed Tiffany Yellow Diamond. Now, because Beyoncé is but a defenseless lamb, her mom Tina Knowles-Lawson has come to her defense by pointing her finger at every broke bitch with a zero-carat diamond chip to say, “How dare you?”
