Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Birthdays

Beyonce and Jay-ZBeyonce Knowles treated Jay Z to a vegan feast for his 44th birthday on Wednesday.

The "Love On Top" hitmaker took her rapper husband, who has vowed to stick to a plant-based diet until Christmas Day, to the popular organic restaurant, Cafe Gratitude, in Los Angeles. The couple, who left their 23-month-old daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, at home for the occasion, tucked into a range of meatless dishes including marinated kale salad, Indian curried lentils and corn tacos with chipotle butternut squash, according to gossip website TMZ.com, before enjoying vegan chocolate truffles for dessert.

Oscar-winning actress Anne Hathaway and singer Ariana Grande were also dining in eatery at the time.

Their outing came just one day after Jay Z revealed that he and his wife were inspired by a close friend to give up animal food products until December 25. "Psychologists have said it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. On the 22nd day, you've found the way. On December 3, one day before my 44th birthday I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan, or as I prefer to call it, plant-based! This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a 'plant-based breakfast' everyday. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought," the "Holy Grail" hitmaker wrote on his Life and Times Blog on Tuesday.

Beyonce Kicked Out of the Pyramids?

Beyonce

Beyonce Knowles has hit back at allegations she was kicked out of the Pyramids in Egypt for being "rude."

The "Love On Top" hitmaker, who has a 22-month-old daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, with her rapper husband Jay Z, was reportedly told to leave the popular tourist attraction in 2009 by infamous archaeologist Dr. Zahi Hawass, who is known as "Egypt's Indiana Jones" because he was unimpressed with her behavior. "Most people I take on tours are very nice and we become friends. But this lady... She said she would come at 3 p.m. but she came late. I said 'You have to say I'm sorry I'm late.' But she didn't open her mouth. I brought a photographer and she also had a photographer and a guard. When my photographer started to shoot, he said 'No, Stop! I am the one who says yes or no, not you.' I said, 'In that case since you almost hit my photographer and you are not polite - out! I am not giving you the privilege of having you on my tour.' I said Beyonce was stupid and I left," the former Egyptian antiquities minister told The Independent newspaper.

Kimye to Forgo Money for North Photos, Will Unveil Them Online

Kanye West and Kim KardashianIn a not-so-surprising turn of events, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are rumored to be following in the footsteps of their besties Jay-Z and Beyonce.

The new parents of one are rumored to be ditching the lucrative deals thrown at them by the likes of Vanity Fair so that they can post photos of their firstborn, North, through a social media site.

Whether it's because West doesn't want to "pimp out" his child (as UsMagazine reports he said) or because Kimye wants so hard to be like beloved power couple Jay-Z and Beyonce, it's unfair that the supposed $4 million offered to them for North's photos will no longer go towards a charity, as momager Kim Jenner previously stated it would.

I guess we'll just have to keep our eyes peeled and glued to Kanye's and Kim's Twitter accounts to find out their final decision.

Beyonce Settles Lawsuit

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Legal Issues

BeyonceBeyonce Knowles has settled a $100 million lawsuit.

The 31-year-old singer has reached an agreement with videogame company Gate Five after allegedly backing out of a deal to create her own motion-capture dance game called Starpower: Beyonce.

Lawyers for both sides signed an agreement dismissing "all claims or counterclaims" without legal fees and filed the papers in Manhattan Supreme Court in New York on Friday. The gaming company's lawyer Peter Gallagher told the New York Post's Page Six, "We've settled amicably. I can't discuss the terms of the settlement, but it was resolved."

The "Love On Top" singer reportedly dropped out of the deal last winter because she claimed that Gate Five had not secured the funding they had promised. The company countered that the Grammy-winner ditched the deal on a whim and claimed it lost its nearly $7 million investment and 70 people lost their jobs. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed.


Beyonce Denying Pregnancy Rumors on Instagram?

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Music, Pregnancies, Rants, Rumors

Beyonce and her daughter Blue IvyPregnancy rumors concerning Beyonce are high, forcing the singer to take to her Instagram account to squash them.

"I can't stop the rumors from starting, and I can't really change peoples minds who believe them, all I can do is sit back and laugh at these low life people who have nothing better to do than talk about me," she wrote in a note she posted to the social networking site (which she later removed).

The rumors were sparked at this year's Met Ball, when the 31 year old showed up in a custom Ralph & Russo gown that seemed to intentionally hide her figure. The gossip was quickly fueled when she cancelled a show on her Mrs. Carter World Tour, citing "exhaustion." Even record producer Russell Simmons congratulated Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z on his official Twitter.

Although the media scrutiny can be frustrating to some stars, I don't quite understand why Beyonce is so heated about it when it's concerning whether or not she's pregnant. No one's calling her fat; pregnancies are joyful announcements. I mean, she ought to be thankful that the media doesn't treat her like they do Kim Kardashian!

Beyonce Pregnant with Second Child?

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Pregnancies, Rumors

Beyonce at the Met GalaBeyonce is reportedly pregnant. The "Grown Woman" singer - who welcomed her first child, daughter Blue Ivy Carter, into the world in January 2012 - is said to be expecting again with her rapper husband Jay-Z.

The New York Post newspaper claims "multiple sources" told them Beyonce, 31, is pregnant following her attendance at the star-studded Met Ball last week, where the star's rumored pregnancy was the talk of the night. The pop superstar is said to have "carefully" hidden her baby bump in a high-waisted Givenchy gown, but according to the report, multiple photos have surfaced of Beyonce sporting a growing stomach on her 65-date Mrs. Carter Show world tour, which touched down in Dublin, Ireland, last night.

The "Girls (Run the World)" hitmaker's spokesperson couldn't be reached for comment by the newspaper, but Beyonce and Jay-Z - real name Shawn Carter - remained tight-lipped about her first pregnancy until sensationally announcing it live at the MTV Video Music Awards in August 2011.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Rumors

Beyonce and Jay-ZBeyonce and Jay-Z are looking to buy Michael Jackson's Neverland ranch.

The "Love on Top" singer and her rapper husband were given a tour of the $30 million ranch in Santa Barbara, California by owner Thomas Barack Jr, according to The Sun newspaper.

The famous 3,000-acre ranch - which was named after the fictitious magical island in children's story 'Peter Pan' - was home to the late King of Pop between 1988 and 2005 and has largely been abandoned since the singer's death in 2009. Beyonce, 31, and Jay-Z, 43, spend most of the time in the rapper's home state of New York with their 13-month-old daughter Blue Ivy, but also spend some months as a family in Beyonce's hometown of Houston, Texas.

Meanwhile, the "Single Ladies" hitmaker opened up about her marital life in an interview with Oprah Winfrey on Saturday, telling the talk show host that she "would not be the woman I am if I did not go home to that man."

BeyonceBeyonce Knowles believes she is a "powerful" woman.

The "Run The World (Girls)" chart-topper has finally fulfilled her life-long ambition to become a symbol of success and empowerment for ladies across the globe, but still finds it difficult to comprehend how much influence she has.

Speaking to the new issue of GQ, she mused, "When I was writing the Destiny's Child songs, it was a big thing to be that young and taking control. And the label at the time didn't know that we were going to be that successful, so they gave us all control. And I got used to it. It is my goal in life to be that example. I now know that, yes, I am powerful. I'm more powerful than my mind can even digest and understand."

The 31-year-old R&B superstar sacrificed her childhood to make it in the music industry after forming the original Destiny's Child line-up aged just eight, and believes she is now perfectly entitled to sit back and enjoy her success:

Robert De Niro and Jay-Z

Robert De Niro allegedly picked a fight with Jay-Z last weekend. The Godfather II actor called the rap mogul out for being disrespectful in front of a collection of A-list guests including Martin Scorsese and Cameron Diaz at Leonardo DiCaprio's 38th birthday party, accusing Jay-Z of never returning his calls.

"Bob was sitting at a table, and when Jay-Z went over to say hello, De Niro told Jay that he never called him back. Bob wasn't in any mood to make polite conversation. He told Jay that if somebody calls you six times, you call them back. It doesn't matter who you are, that is just rude," a source said.

Kanye Encourages Kim to Lose Weight

Kim Kardashian and Kanye WestKanye West wants his girlfriend Kim Kardashian to lose weight.

The "Mercy" rapper is said to have urged the reality TV star - who is famous for her curvy figure - to slim down and shed up to 20 pounds. Kanye thinks his good friend Beyonce - who gave birth to her first child Blue Ivy last January - has a better body than his girlfriend of six months and is encouraging her to follow the singer's grueling Dreamgirls diet, according to OK!.

"He even suggested Kim drop 20 pounds, arguing that Beyonce has a similar shape and she proved you can get that supermodel body using her lemon juice, cayenne pepper and maple syrup diet. He says he wants her to be the face of his clothing line... but to do that she has to fit into the clothes. It's really uncomfortable - her shape is what made her name. He has a long-term fantasy of turning them into the new Beyonce and Jay-Z power couple, but getting Kim to starve isn't the way to do it," a source close to the couple said.
