Getting a picture of Baby Blue Ivy has been a big deal since day one. It appears that it’s still a pretty big deal. Jay Z and Beyonce were spotted and a ton of pictures and even a video hit the internet in viral fashion. Of course I’m a little late posting the pics because I, unlike other gossip bloggers happened to have a day job (At least until you guys starting visiting this damn site everyday). If you don’t think Jay Z and Beyonce are a big deal, these photos even ended up on IBT (International Business Time).
Like I said, don’t act like you don’t care!
And if that’s not enough….how about a boring as video clip. Ok not really boring because you don’t realize it’s boring until after you watch it. I guess that’s true for all boring clips.
Jay-Z and Beyonce might be one of the most powerful couples in the entertainment world, but did they push their powers to far with a trip to Cuba? The couple celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary last week in Havana and were promptly met by screaming fans, and some unexpected criticism. Two Republican members of Congress apparently had nothing better to do and decided to look further into this trip to Cuba. They asked the U.S. Treasury Department for information on the type of license Jay-Z and Beyonce had for their trip. They specifically asked for, “information regarding what type of license that Beyonce and Jay-Z received, for what purpose and who approved such travel.”
A source close to the couple claims the trip was fully licensed by the U..S Treasury Department under the “people-to-people” cultural exchange program. Of course, traveling to Cuba is nearly impossible for most Americans due to the U.S. trade embargo against Cuba.
Sen. Marco Rubio also issued a statement on the trip and it doesn’t sound like he was too happy. Rubio said,
“U.S. law clearly bans tourism to Cuba by American citizens because it provides money to a cruel, repressive and murderous regime. Since their inception, the Obama Administration’s “people-to-people” cultural exchange programs have been abused by tourists who have no interest in the Cuban people’s freedom and either don’t realize or don’t care that they’re essentially funding the regime’s systematic trampling of people’s human rights.”
Beyonce and Jay-Z have declined to speak with reporters, but a state-run website CubaSi confirmed the trip as a tourist trip. And even with the strict rules on traveling to Cuba, thousands of Americans do it every year on religious, journalistic and even academic licenses. So, it appears Beyonce and Jay-Z had a proper license, but if they didn’t, they could be facing a big fine.
Oh, the whole thing is just silliness! The fact that we still can’t travel to Cuba is jut silly, but let’s not get into all of that. This is not a political blog! Let’s just all chill out and go listen to some Jay-Z.Read more...
HBO leaked a photo from the new documentary about Beyonce produced by Beyonce starring…..Beyonce. The film will dive deep into the life of the superstar including pictures of her ACTUALLY pregnant, for those who thought she faked it.
She can be seen here holding 1 year old Blue Ivy up and looking at her like only a mother can. If you look close into the child’s face eerily enough you can see the infamous Jay-Z glare. That is definitely his baby. No doubt about it. If you would have told me a baby that looks like Jay-Z would be that cute and adorable I would not have believed you. I had to see it for myself.
This isn’t the best song on the planet but I think it has appeal for many reasons. This is Justin Timberlake’s first song after 7 years and JT fans were starving for something…anything. It’s produced by Timbaland and batting cleanup is none other than Jay-Z.
Besides all that, it has a flare of sophistication that hip hop and R&B has been missing recently. Let’s face it, Jay-Z fans, Justin Timberlake Fans and Timbaland fans are either nearing 30 or 30 plus. Sometime there is a need for some grown and sexy. I’m even writing this in my Suit and Tie.
I hate to keep using the word SWAG but let’s just say the video looks like it was produced by GQ. Jay Z is rapping in the mic sitting down. Who does that!
See for yourself. Over 700,000 views in 24 hours. Not too bad.
What do you Get the Man who has everything? Or maybe I should ask what do you get the man who has everything that is married to the woman who has everything?
How about a $4.8 million watch? The Daily Star is reporting that Beyoncé got Jay Z a Hublot!! The watch is appropriately called the Big Bang. (That’s what Jay gave “B” after he got the gift).
So why does the watch cost $5 Million?
A quick look and you can tell that the price would be something staggering. The gold case has 302 baguette diamonds. It’s 18 Karat white gold dial holds another 179 baguettes and the wrist band holds another 782 with six 3 karat emerald cuts. The entire watch has 1,282 diamonds all of grade A VVS clarity. And for those who have shopped for wedding rings, you know a small 1 karat VVS will set a brotha back $10Gs.
Each diamond has been selected to fit the watch. It took over a year for Hublot to find the stones alone and another 14 months to construct the watch itself. As part of that 14 months, 12 cutters and 5 setters worked on the project full time for seven months.
Right not it’s still a strong rumor that Jay Z has the watch but a source told the Daily Star,
“Beyonce will always buy Jay the best gifts money can buy. Money is no object to her. She knew he would love the Hublot Big Bang watch. It’s the ultimate timepiece, a mixture of extravagance, luxury and bling. Jay-Z is a huge watch collector and was very excited when he was given the gift. He can’t wait to start flashing it around. It is absolutely stunning. In Beyonce’s defence, what do you buy the man who already has everything?”
I have to admit, $5 Million on a watch is a little much even if you are worth $300 Million. Then again, not so much when your hubby is worth $475 milllion. Ok…take the watch dammit. Happy Birthday Hov.
Here is a video clip of the Big Bang!
Jay-Z has had a busy week. After being spotted at a game with his “B”, and putting work in last night at an Obama Rally with Bruce Springsteen we found out that he looked out for his neighbors before he left.
When you think of NY, buildings and penthouses a high rise comes to mind. Jay-Z and Beyonce’s building is only seven floors with 28 units including the penthouse that Jay brought back in 2004 for about $7 Million. According to the NY Post, Jay Z put up the money for a generator to power up the building when they lost power during Hurricane Sandy.
He’s got 99 Problems but electricity and Mitt ain’t one.Read more...
