It's takes more than some water from the sky to get her down!

On Friday, Beyonce looked amazing in a floral print dress and blue handbag as she was all smiles after leaving an office building with hubby Jay-Z.

The 32-year-old entertainer showed that she's in incredible shape, which is fortuitous given that she and her husband are set to embark on their On The Run tour this summer.

Wonder if she did any singing in the rain?

Report: Jay Z Will Be Kanye West's Best Man!

May 22, 2014 09:55 AM

The ultimate sign of bromance!

Jay Z will serve as Kanye West's best man at his wedding to Kim Kardashian on May 24, DailyMail reports.

Hova will be front and center for Kimye's big day, but wife Beyonce still isn't sure she's even going to attend!

"Beyonce had to think about it at the last minute, she didn't really want to go, but I think Jay Z's the best man, so he's kind of making her go," a source told the website.

The "Drunk In Love" singer was reportedly on the fence about going because it was rumored the nuptials would be filmed for Keeping Up with the Kardashians, but Kimmy K dispelled that chatter and now it seems Bey might decide to grace them with her presence.

It's a power struggle between power couples!

Maybe Solange knew something we didn't!

Beyonce and Jay Z are headed for divorce, Life & Style reports.

The couple are supposedly facing a $1 billion split, as well as a nasty custody battle over daughter Blue Ivy.

Among the issues in their strained union? "His nights with other women" and "explosive fights and insane jealousy", according to the mag cover.

The pair are apparently trying to keep the separation quiet for the time being.

This doesn't look good for their joint "On the Run" tour this summer! What are they on the run from… the truth about their marriage?

Beyonce, Jay Z And Solange Release Vague Statement About Elevator Attack

May 15, 2014 02:20 PM

jay-z-bey-sol-fight-haha.jpg

Beyonce, Jay Z and Solange Knowles have finally commented on the now infamous fight that occurred between the rapper and Solange inside an elevator at the Standard Hotel in New York City after the Met Gala last week. While it doesn't provide us with the answers we really wanted, it does sound like they're moving past the bizarre altercation.

The trio said in a statement:

    "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."

Earlier today a rep for the Standard Hotel confirmed that the employee who leaked the video has been fired, and up until this afternoon, both Beyonce and Solange have been keeping us guessing with cryptic social media posts.

First Solange deleted a handful of Instagram photos with her older sister, and though Bey posted a seemingly negative message two days after the incident occurred, this week she uploaded a series of throwback pictures of the two. This morning Solange Instagrammed an adorable throwback photo of herself with Beyonce, so it does appear as though the ladies have patched things up.

But what triggered this? And has Solange been kicked off Jay's Roc Nation label?




Solange Posts Throwback Pic With Beyonce, Hotel Fires Employee Responsible For Leaking Jay Z Fight Footage

May 15, 2014 09:20 AM

The employee at the Standard Hotel in New York City who leaked the video of Solange Knowles attacking Jay Z in an elevator has been fired. A rep for the Standard said they have "identified the individual responsible for breaching the security policies of the hotel and recording the confidential CCTV video released by TMZ."

"The Standard has already terminated the individual and will now be pursuing all available civil and criminal remedies," the statement continued. "The Standard will next be turning over all available information to the criminal authorities."

Apparently the unnamed employee filmed the footage from one of the security monitors on their cell phone, and when it first hit the web the hotel said, "We are shocked and disappointed that there was a clear breach of our security system and the confidentiality that we count on providing our guests. We are investigating with the utmost urgency the circumstances surrounding the situation and, as is our customary practice, will discipline and prosecute the individuals to our fullest capacity."

In the grainy footage you can see Solange repeatedly attempting to punch and kick Jay Z while Beyonce stands by, and though none of the stars have commented on the incident, Beyonce and Solange have seemingly addressed it on their social media accounts. Though Solange seems to have been dropped from the Roc Nation record label, it does appear as though the sisters have mended fences.

After the leak, Solange deleted a handful of Instagram photos with Bey, and though Bey posted a cryptic message two days after the incident occurred, this week she uploaded a series of throwback pictures of the two, and this morning Solange added this adorable throwback photo above of the two ladies together several decades ago...

But will they ever release a statement on this?




Kanye West Goes Nude For Recreation Of Michelangelo Painting With Jay Z

Thanks to the Carter Family Portrait gallery on Tumblr, we now know what the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel would look like if Kanye West and Jay Z were God and Adam ... and it's equally entertaining and hilarious! Funny how Kanye isn't God in this interpretation though...

The Tumblr page features a handful of historic works of art that have been re-done with a R&B twist, and while most of the pieces use Beyonce Knowles' famous face, the one of Kanye and Jay gets our vote as the best adaptation.

From the re-creation of The Creation of Adam to American Gothic with Jay and Bey, whoever spent the better part of their day Photoshopping these famous faces onto pieces by Klimt, Vermeer, Michelangelo, Frida Kahlo, Andy Warhol, Guido Reni and Frederick Warren Freer has a big thumbs up from us.

Neither Jay/Bey or Kanye has commented on the project, but we're dying to know what they think of it! Click the gallery below for more photos...




Jay Z Attacked By Beyonce's Sister Solange In Elevator After Met Gala

May 12, 2014 09:30 AM

Whoa!

Beyonce's sister Solange went absolutely berserk and assaulted Jay Z in an elevator after a Met Gala after party, and the whole thing was caught on tape!

There was no audio, so we're not sure why she flew into a rage, but we're shocked at how calm and collected Hova was during the whole exchange. He never once laid a hand on her!

The "Losing You" singer can be seen saying something to her brother-in-law before swinging her fists and punching him repeatedly until the bodyguard restrained her. She even went to kick the rapper at one point, whereby he grabbed her leg and attempted to stop the abuse. The bodyguard pressed the emergency button on the 12th floor in an attempt to keep the altercation private.

Beyonce didn't really do anything to protect her man, either! Not only that, but Bey took off in the same car as her sister while her husband opted to take a different ride. That leads us to believe Queen B sided with her sibling!

We're dying to know what this was about!
