Missed the VMAs? Let me catch you up!

Did you miss last night’s MTV Video Music Awards? You’re not alone. I generally purposely try to miss the broadcast, but for whatever reason, I actually tuned in this year – via torrent, of course, which means I got to skip over the seemingly endless ad breaks. Here are the 10 moments that people are talking about/will make you seem totally “on it” around the water cooler at work.

Beyoncé. Everything Beyoncé.

Beyonce Jay-Z Bluey Ivy VMAs

Beyoncé was given the Video Vanguard Award after giving an incredible performance of a medley of pretty much every single song on the self-titled album. I know I get a bit Beyoncé-d out sometimes, but you can’t deny she’s an incredibly accomplished performer and that award was extremely well-deserved. Jay-Z bringing little Blue Ivy up on stage to hand her the statue at the end was the extra cherry on top. SO CUTE.

Miley Cyrus got a homeless man to accept her award.

Miley Cyrus won Video of the Year, but instead of accepting the award herself, she sent a homeless man from the area on stage to represent the homeless community in Los Angeles and bring awareness to the cause. Miley was in tears the whole time he was speaking, but I can’t tell if this was genuine or some weird hacky PR move. I’m feeling optimistic today, so I’ll go with the former.

Here’s the trailer for Jay-Z and Beyonce’s ‘On The Run’ HBO special

Jay-Z and Beyonce are taking their On The Run tour to HBO because I guess they need even MORE money. The special won’t be airing until September, but people are losing their damn minds over this shit, so here’s your first trailer:

I dunno, I feel like I’m suffering Bey-Z exhaustion again, like I was before she dropped the self-titled. I need them to go away for a while, please.

Beyonce Is “Done” With Jay Z

Jay+Z+Beyonce+Knowles

Beyoncé and Jay Z are totally getting divorced for realsies, so claims Us Weekly. Rumors of their impending divorce are nothing new, but the magazine is so dead set on it that they’ve made it their cover, essentially saying Bey’s not exactly “drunk in love” anymore.

From Us:

Now that the singer has finished the last of her On The Run U.S. tour dates with husband Jay Z, speculation about the couple’s marriage is at an all-time high. Fans are wondering if the spouses of six years will go the distance — but Beyonce is already making moves toward a split, sources reveal in the new issue of Us Weekly.

Insiders tell Us the music superstar, 32, has a plan of action in place for if/when she decides to call it quits with her rapper hubby, 44, dad to her 2-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy. One source says “she is done” after their remaining On The Run shows in Paris, France.

[...]

A source previously told Us Weekly that the spouses “stayed separately” while in New York and L.A. for their On The Run tour. And another insider said Beyonce went without her husband to look for apartments in Manhattan, including a $21.5 million penthouse in Chelsea.

You know what? Let them be done already. I’m so sick of hearing about them. I’m pretty much sick of them altogether. If this actually happens, let’s just all pray it’s a swift and clean divorce, and not the media circus it will inevitably be, because I am so tired of hearing about Bey and Jey.

I don’t know if I believe Us or not (like how many freaking times have they declared Jennifer Aniston to be pregnant?) but I don’t think I would be shocked if they did divorce. Maybe that’s only because I don’t care about their lives all that much, and am not hugely invested.

Anyway, if they divorce, I’ll bet they announce it in October. Anyone else want to make a guess?

Blue Ivy might not be Beyonce’s, or so a woman named Tina Seals claims

beyonce jay-z blue ivy

All of you who have been saying from jump that Beyoncé hired a surrogate to carry Blue Ivy might start feeling a bit vindicated when I tell you this one: a woman named Tina Seals has filed a maternity suit against the couple claiming that she is the real mother of Blue Ivy.

From The Hollywood Gossip (so take this with a GIANT grain of salt):

A woman named Tina Seals has reportedly filed a maternity lawsuit in Manhattan in which she claims to be the mother of Blue Ivy Carter, Jay Z and Beyonce’s only child.

The rumored legal document alleges that Seals is seeking “to verify whether she is the biological mother” of the toddler and that she was “previously associated” in some way with defendants “Beyonce Knowles and Jay Z Carter.”

It’s nearly unheard of for a woman to file a maternity lawsuit because this somehow means Seals believes SHE gave birth to Blue Ivy instead of Beyonce… which is just an odd thing for the latter to have covered up and/or the former to have allowed.

Could she have had an affair with Jay Z, given the child up for adoption to the couple and is now having second thoughts?

It’s unclear, and it could be complete BS – but this scandal comes amidst incessant chatter that Jay Z and Beyonce are on the outs.

I want us all to be realistic with ourselves and realise that while this might be REALLY juicy if it were true, it’s most likely complete and utter bullshit and the woman behind the alleged lawsuit, if it’s real, is probably a walking insane asylum and/or trying to make some quick and easy cash. The kid looks like Jay-Z and it also has a bit of Bey from when she was younger. Blue Ivy is hers.

Shit like this makes it even more abundantly clear why I would never, ever want to be a celebrity.

Beyoncé releases ‘Flawless’ remix featuring Nicki Minaj

beyonce nicki minaj flawless remix

Beyoncé just unveiled a remix to her popular track ‘Flawless’, complete with a rap verse performed by herself, and one performed by Nicki Minaj. Beyoncé’s verse even pays homage to the infamous elevator incident, boasting, “Of course shit goes down sometimes when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator.” It doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, that line, does it?

All in all, this song did NOT need a remix. But if you want to listen to it anyway, you can head on over to Beyonce’s website or listen below (assuming this isn’t taken down ASAP):

Beyonce and Jay-Z might get divorced, after all

beyonce jay-z

There have been rumours swirling for months that Beyonce and Jay-Z‘s marriage is on the rocks and soon to end. While many brushed off those reports due to the fact that they’re, you know, on tour together and constantly posting photos of themselves looking relatively happy (or at least very much in the same place) on Instagram, the reports just won’t stop coming. Perhaps the most convincing bit of “evidence” is this piece from Blind Gossip (which correctly predicted the Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes split, by the way):

If business-arrangement couples can sell a “real couple” image to the public, the couple becomes worth more than each celeb would be worth individually. Of course, that value goes up even more if they can take the PR relationship all the way to marriage and children.

We have told you MANY times before that this high-profile marriage is just a business arrangement. We have also told you that this business arrangement will wind down after their current project is finished. Well, it’s almost over!

They are splitting up everything (properties, money, child/ren) right now, but will be keeping up appearances until the announcement. They are separating this year, with the divorce to follow in about six months. It will be very clean and very fast. In fact, the parties involved are describing the timeline as “Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes fast.”

Well, that sounds about right. I don’t see what the big deal is about all of this, either – so what if they divorce? People do it all the time, and Bey and Jay are not these superhuman angels who are immune to real life relationship issues, in that sense – especially if one of you can’t keep it in your pants. Life does indeed go on even if they’re no longer together, and I can sorta see this being true.

Beyonce is headlining the ’50 Shades of Grey’ soundtrack

Here’s a bit of news you probably didn’t see coming, but also probably isn’t all that surprising: Beyoncé is headlining the soundtrack for the 50 Shades of Grey movie. I sort of feel like this is an awful decision, but I suppose from a financial perspective, it’s a no-brainer.

What exactly she’ll be doing – as in, how many songs, whether it’ll be something new or from the last album, etc – no one’s sure, but I suppose we’ll be finding out soon enough, since Bey herself posted this on Instagram this morning:

What do you think of the Beyonce/50 Shades team up? Disaster? Dream?
