Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Look, It’s Blue Ivy!

Well, it’s Blue Ivy and Beyonce, but you know, whatever, we see that broad every day. Blue Ivy, though, we haven’t really seen all that much of her at all. There have been several paparazzi shots of Beyonce with her baby, but she’s always entirely covered up so that you can’t see her face. Then, of course, there were those photos of Blue that were posted on Tumblr, but that was way back in February.

Today is a brand new day though, and we have a candid shot from somebody who happened to be in the same shop as Beyonce and Blue. That person was kind enough to post the photo on Twitter, and the rest of the internet was kind enough to notice. So what do we think?

Ok, here’s the thing: I’m kind of bad at babies. If it’s really, painfully obvious, I can tell what features a baby shares with its parents, but other than that, I usually just coo at them and hold their little hands. But does this baby the same baby that we originally saw back in February?

Here’s the old baby:

If I’m being completely ridiculous, feel free to call me out on it, but I’m starting to get suspicious. The baby has a different hairline now, different hair texture, a seemingly darker skin tone (but that could just be the quality of the photo), and it looks to me like the eyes might be shaped a little differently too. So please, people with more baby experience than me, are these kinds of changes normal, or are we looking at two different babies?

Kim Kardashian Is An Aunt Again!

No, Kourtney hasn’t had her second baby yet. And no, Khloe isn’t pregnant. Kim just decided to declare herself “Auntie Kim” to Beyonce‘s kid.

From the National Enquirer via Celebitchy:

Kim Kardashian is desperate to become BFFs with Beyonce – and she’s spoiling the singer’s baby to get super-close, say sources.

Kim splurged on a $5000 diamond-studded baby bracelet for Beyonce and Jay-Z’s 6-month-old daughter Blue Ivy. But Kim presumptuously personalized the trinket with the engraving “Love Auntie Kim.”

And now Beyonce is suspicious that Kim is trying to buy her friendship, confide insiders.

“They have been friends for five minutes, but already Kim is trying to force herself into Beyonce’s life,” says a source. After Kim bought Blue Ivy the pink-and-white-diamond-studded bracelet, Beyonce was moved by the lavish gesture, but then she became suspicious of the grandiose “Auntie Kim” engraving.

“She thought it was over the top, considering she’s known Kim personally for such a short time. Despite Kim’s sex tape and bad marriages, Beyonce had been warming to her based on her charming demeanor and romance with Kanye, who’s a good friend. But she certainly doesn’t consider Kim family in any way, shape or form. And for Kim to suggest that closeness in a present for Blue Ivy really put Beyonce off.”

Beyonce and Kim have been spending time together during the “Watch the Throne” tour, but Beyonce is beginning to feel uncomfortable, according to the source.

“She believes Kim is trying to buy her friendship through her daughter, and she’s cooling to their friendship. Right now, Beyonce is on her guard. She’s keeping her distance until she feels more trusting of Kim.”

I can’t believe I’ve never really thought about the close relationship that Kim will have with Blue Ivy now that she and Beyonce are total BFFs. I mean, of course she’ll get Blue Ivy cute little bracelets and trinkets and dresses, you know? Because she’s family now. And by the way, this isn’t sarcasm, this is just what Kim actually thinks. Because she is completely out of touch with reality. And she’s probably already planning not only her wedding to Kanye, but also her firstborn son’s wedding to Blue Ivy. It’s because she’s a romantic, not because she’s a stalker, ok?

New BFF Alert: Beyonce and Kim Kardashian, For Real This Time

Nearly a month ago, I told you guys about how Kim Kardashian went to a Beyonce concert, and about how she went backstage afterwards where they were seen “greeting each other with an embrace and dancing together.” I suggested that they were going to become total besties, but nooo. You guys were all “it’s not true, Beyonce would never!” and “show me the pictures then!”

There’s Kim and Bey in Birmingham last night, watching their men, Kanye and Jay-Z, put on a show. But hey, you can’t really see their faces all that clearly, right?

I’ll throw a couple more pictures in the gallery, but here’s a video! It’s really terrible quality, and I’d suggest turning your speakers way down, but you can see Kim and Beyonce in the mosh pit in the very beginning with a bodyguard ordering someone to turn their camera off:

It’s not much, but it’ll hold us over until Beyonce makes her debut on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

These Are the Beyonce 60-Pound Weight Loss Photos That Everyone’s Talking About

Remember how I just keep going on and on about Beyonce and her C-section and her pregnancy and frankly, even though it’s technically old-ass news, I just can’t seem to leave the shit alone? Well, here’s another story to add to the massive pile of “what the f-ck, Beyonce?” that we, here at Evil Beet, are in the process of creating.

As I told y’all the other day, Beyonce recently happened to mention that she lost sixty post-baby pounds in the immediate weeks following her C-section, which was this past January. She announced this business during her first post-baby show at a casino in Atlantic City, which was where the accompanying photos were taken. And that was this past weekend. And I’m not saying that Beyonce’s chunky—because she’s not. I think Beyonce’s got a beautiful, toned, enviable, kick-ass figure, and she’s not a shapeless stick. But seeing Miss Beyonce in the days leading up to her delivery, there is NO F-CKING WAY IN HELL that this woman packed on sixty pounds during her pregnancy. NOT A CHANCE. Because looking at the photo above, and the others in the gallery, Beyonce would have been MASSIVE—even bigger than Jessica Simpson was—and not that there’s anything wrong with that (you know how I feel about all that), she would have been the size of the Hindenberg in those weeks prior to her delivery. But she wasn’t. She looked like this:

And this:

Come on!

Final thought? People only just started letting this “fake Beyonce pregnancy” thing go. And then girlfriend had to open her mouth about this half-a-person weight-loss garbage. Maybe girl should keep her damn mouth shut and let sleeping dogs lie, you know?

I rest my case.

New BFF Alert: Beyonce and Kim Kardashian!

I know, I know, we’ve heard before that Beyonce is not at all interested in becoming besties, or even acquaintances, with Kim Kardashian. We’ve heard that even though Kim is dating Kanye, the BFF of Beyonce’s husband, Jay-Z, Beyonce has made a “No Kardashians Allowed” rule. We’ve heard a lot of things, you guys, but none of it’s true. No, Kim and Beyonce are totally friends. Got it?

From Us Weekly:

After touring Cannes, France last week and unexpectedly parting with some “sentimental” items in her luggage, Kim Kardashian was looking to let loose.

Before making an appearance at The Pool After Dark at Harrah’s resort in Atlantic City, NJ on Sunday, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star made a beeline for Beyonce’s concert with pal Brittny Gastineau and her makeup artist Mario at Revel’s Ovation Hall. Kardashian and Gastineau enjoyed a night of dancing and singing along with the songstress’ chart-topping hits.

Backstage, Kardashian, 31, got a chance to chat with the woman of the evening herself, and the pair were seen greeting each other with an embrace and dancing together. Beyonce’s husband of four years, Jay-Z, is best friends with Kanye West, Kardashian’s serious boyfriend.

“Kim thought it was such a great show,” a source tells Us Weekly. “There’s always some random rumors there is tension between them and there totally isn’t! Kim had so much fun.”

The E! star is one of several A-listers who made it out to Beyonce’s four-concert weekend, which marked her post-baby performance debut since giving birth to daughter Blue Ivy in January.

On Saturday, First Lady Michelle Obama, 48, and her daughters Malia, 13, and Sasha, 10, watched the show from a private box where they did the “Single Ladies” dance together and rocked out to “Crazy in Love.” Oprah’s BFF Gayle King sat nearby.

Ok, I have a few thoughts on this story, so I’ll go ahead and break them down:

- Those “sentimental items” that Kim lost? She’s saying that it was a pair of vintage sunglasses that her father gave her just before he died, and that the airline’s employees stole them, along with some items that were less sentimental and more expensive. Obviously she has a right to be upset about it, but why would you take something that means so much to you when you’re going to be doing a lot of flying?

- Does anyone else think that the source sounds suspiciously like Kim herself? Totally.

- This article seriously called Kim Kardashian an A-lister. No.

- Where do I get a video of Michelle Obama doing the “Single Ladies” dance?

Did I miss anything?

Beyonce “Lost Sixty Pounds” After “Giving Birth”

Yes, she did. At least that’s what she told fans at a show this past weekend in Atlantic City. On the stage, Beyonce said:

“Y’all have no idea how hard I worked. I had to lose 60 pounds. They had me on that treadmill. I ate lettuce!”

Sixty pounds, guys. That could be half a grown-ass adult. That could be a large five-year-old. Sixty pounds. For the record? This is what Beyonce looked like back in February, not even six weeks after giving birth:

So! She lost sixty pounds, right? I mean, Beyonce would never lie to us. She’d never lie to her fans (please believe, where I separated “us” and “her fans,” I entirely meant them to be mutually exclusive BECAUSE THEY ARE), right? Sixty pounds, woot! My question, though? Precisely what sixty pounds does she mean she lost? Because there just isn’t an “extra” sixty pounds on that frame to lose, guys. Someone made a mistake on those numbers somewhere.

Sigh. I call bullshit. Again.

Beyonce and Co. “Shaping” Baby Blue Ivy’s Nose?

From Bossip:

Blue Ivy may be looking too much like Jay-Z for Tina Knowles’ taste.

The chitchatter out of Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s inner circle is that Grandma Tina has been obsessive about “shaping” Blue Ivy’s nose — a practice of pinching and smoothing a baby’s features in attempt to form them into “more attractive” shapes. An insider tells Bossip that friends have spotted Tina “shaping” the baby’s nose as she falls asleep on several occasions. “Blue Ivy really does look just like Jay-Z,” the insider tells BOSSIP. “Tina is hoping she doesn’t get his nose, but it’s already looking that way.”

The source says the couples friends have tried to laugh off Mama Tina’s efforts to keep Hov from having hurt feelings. “He’s being a good sport, but she isn’t even trying to hide it,” the source adds.

Well jeez. If all that business is true, that’s got to make Jay-Z feel really, really good about himself. Damn, Tina.

All I know is that It’d be a cold day in hell if I allowed my mother do something this silly in order to make my already-pretty baby even “prettier.” Unless, of course, Beyonce‘s completely on board with it, and if that’s the case, well hell. I suppose there’s always the option of Botox and plastic surgery for the kid when she hits the ripe old age of five. I mean, kids’ features are, like, fully-formed by then, right?
