Did Beyonce admit that Jay-Z cheated?

jay-z beyonce

Beyoncé and Jay-Z are currently touring across America as part of their On The Run tour, but this is going on amidst (more) reports that Jay cheated on her. Some say it was with Rachel Roy, others say it was with women that aren’t really anyone of note, but the whole Knowles/Carter camp has kept quiet on this… until now?

During a show in Ohio last weekend, Bey sang one of her unreleased songs called ‘Resentment’, which is a big fan favourite but people outside the Beyhive won’t really know. However, she changed the lyrics in a way that made a lot of people think she might just be ready to admit that her husband was unfaithful…

ORIGINAL LYRICS:

I’ll always remember feeling like I was no good / Like I couldn’t do it for you like your mistress could

Been ridin’ with you for six years [...] I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she’s had half of me.

NEW LYRICS:

I’ll always remember feeling like I was no good / Like I couldn’t do it for you like that wack bitch could

Been ridin’ with you for twelve years [...] I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she’s had half of me. She ain’t even half of me. That bitch will never be.

Huh. Jay-Z and Beyoncé have been together for 12 years now, so that part seems to fit. However, if the song was already about a man cheating on his wife, why did the lyrics even need to be changed? The song already applies. I suppose the “bitch” line makes it all a little more personal and heated, but I don’t think we’ll ever know what truly happened… unless she serves him with divorce papers on the final night of the tour or something.

Video of the performance is here:

What do you think? Did Jay-Z cheat on Beyoncé? Is this why Solange had to go and snatch his ass in that elevator?

Beyonce really does run the world, it seems

beyonce

Yesterday, Forbes released their Celebrity 100 list, which is – as you probably guessed – a list of the most powerful figures in Hollywood. Unsurprisingly, Beyoncé topped that list at the #1 spot, pushing down last year’s winner, Oprah, all the way down to #4.

According to the list, Bey earned $115 million last year – pretty impressive, and sorta depressing to think about. However, it’s not all about money – LeBron James came in the second spot and made only $72 million (“only”), while third place charter Dr. Dre brought in a whopping $620 million. Oprah still raked in $82 million, and Ellen DeGeneres was right behind her at #5, making an impressive $70 million. Jay-Z, Floyd Mayweather, Rihanna, Katy Perry and Robert Downey Jr. all rounded out the Top 10.

So how does Forbes come up with this list? Here, let them explain:

To create the Celebrity 100, we start by compiling earnings estimates for more than 200 celebrities to create a pool of top earners. To come up with our earnings estimates, we talk to agents, lawyers, producers and other in-the-know folks about entertainment-related earnings for each celebrity. That can include things like upfront pay for movies, syndication payments for old TV shows, tournament winnings and endorsements. We don’t deduct for taxes, agent fees or the other costs of being a celebrity.

Then we use Factiva to count how many times each celebrity was mentioned in print, on TV and on the radio between June 1, 2013, and June 1, 2014, the time frame for this year’s list.

We also measure social media reach with help from the smart people at StarCount. The Singapore-based company measures social networking power across 11 platforms including Twitter TWTR +0.1%, Facebook, YouTube, Orkut and Weibo. Each star’s number is a reflection of how popular he or she is on the Internet.

This year, we also added an impact ranking for each celebrity. The number is the degree of impact each celebrity has had on the entertainment industry and our culture overall during the prior year, based on the evaluation of the list editors, reporters and their sources for the list.

Huh, sounds sorta complicated. I guess by that account, it makes sense that Beyoncé would come up in the top spot. I don’t think she’ll hold onto it for 2015, however – we’re all getting a little tired from the Bey & Jay overkill.

Beyonce gets her ass out during concert, world rejoices

"On The Run Tour: Beyonce And Jay-Z" - Opening Night In Miami Gardens

Beyoncé has a new look, and it’s a body suit with the ass cheeks cut out. She debuted the “outfit” during her concert with husband Jay-Z for their On The Run tour in Miami this week. Also, just FYI, the show was 42 songs long. Dear God, that just sounds exhausting, even if you’re fans of them both. No thanks.

Here’s the ass in action:

I mean, I’m not particularly fond of this look, despite how hot Beyoncé clearly is, but I suppose to each his/her own. What do you think? Too much? Too little? Too meh?

Uh Oh… Are we starting not to care about Beyoncé and Jay-Z?

56th GRAMMY Awards - Show

Beyoncé and Jay-Z are America’s king and queen, right? Everyone loves them (I mean in the broader sense) and treats them like royalty. They’re even friends with the Obamas! With that in mind, you’d assume that the tickets to their On the Run tour set for this summer in the US would have sold out in seconds… but it seems that’s not the case.

From Radar Online:

A quick look on Ticketmaster reveals less than desirable ticket sales for the hip-hop royalty duo, with one industry insider exclusively telling RadarOnline.com their personal lives and a lack of airplay on the radio could be contributing.

According to the leading ticket sales distributor, tens of thousands of tickets are still available for the “On the Run” concert in Miami on July 25, as well as Atlanta on July 15 and a July 12 show in New Jersey.

These are metropolis cities across the United States that typically sell out concerts quickly, as they did with Justin Timberlake‘s recent “20/20? tour and Madonna‘s “MDMA” tour.

“Beyonce’s album had a big first month with ‘Drunk in Love’, but the last several singles have tanked on the charts,” the insider told Radar.

“If you’re launching a stadium tour, you have to have airplay, and she’s had no hits lately on the radio.”

“It’s overload. The public has been left with a sour taste in their mouth because of the elevator fight and all the information that leaked about Jay and B’s relationship afterward,” the source said.

True, true. It’s definitely a case of “too much of a good thing”. I enjoy them both as artists, but we’re being oversaturated with Bey and Jay and people are tired of it. There’s always an inevitable backlash when that happens. Does it mean the end of their careers? Of course not. It does mean, however, that we all need a nice little break, which shouldn’t be a bad thing. They should take some time off, too!

Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Solange hit up ‘Saturday Night Live’ this weekend…

solange jay-z

With everything that’s been going on in Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Solange‘s world over this past week, it’s no wonder they’re absolutely everywhere (more than usual), and even though they already put out a statement asking everyone to move on from Elevatorgate 2014, we still want to know what REALLY happened. And now we do.

The trio stopped by Saturday Night Live this weekend to reveal the truth behind the drama – and turns out, it was just a silly misunderstanding over an unwieldy spider.

LOL to that. In all seriousness, I really hope we can move on from this now that all the obligatory jokes have been made. And on a more “serious” note, here’s a fake movie trailer/real promo trailer for Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s upcoming summer On the Run tour:

Oh, God: Solange, Jay-Z and Beyoncé released a statement on the elevator incident

solange jay-z

It was only a matter of time, I suppose, before the Knowles/Carter clan were forced to speak up on the much-spoken about incident that took place in the elevator at the Standard Hotel after the Met Gala earlier this month. Jokes were made, memes were created and seemingly everyone and their grandmother had a theory on why Solange tried to beat the shit out of Jay-Z and why Beyoncé didn’t seem to care all that much either way.

Well, here’s what they told the Associated Press on Thursday:

“As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident. But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it. Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred.

They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.

The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false. At the end of the day, families have problems and we’re no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We’ve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same.”

LOL, of course you hope everyone else will do the same. Not exactly happy about having a tarnish on that perfect reputation, are we, Beyoncé? You can tell she couldn’t even be bothered with this statement.

I do think some people online have made some great points about how, were the tables turned and it was Jay attacking Solange, there would have been a lot less laughter and a whole lot more criticism, and rightfully so. Just because Solange is a woman doesn’t make her physical violence okay, but there have long been reports about her being a little… shall we say unruly. I’m a Solange fan, musically speaking, but this whole thing needs to calm down now, and homegirl needs to get some anger management.

Kelly Rowland is a married woman now

Kelly Rowland announced her engagement to boyfriend Tim Witherspoon back in December, and she’s apparently delivered on her promise to have a small ass wedding, as reports have surfaced that the pair tied the knot in Costa Rica on Friday, May 9th with only 30 people in attendance.

A source told US Weekly that Kelly was accompanied by Beyoncé on a private plane down to the island, and it was said to be a “quick, simple ceremony”. Bit long of a flight for something so small, but to each her own. Of course, Kelly hasn’t confirmed the reports, nor has she posted any pictures or anything, but Beyoncé sure did – she took a selfie in what sorta looks like a bridesmaid dress if you squint really hard / try to imagine what you can’t actually see in the picture (and yes, I’m being facetious).
