What a public relations mess. And from a superstar who's known for precision and perfection. That's part of it, non? Part of the reason why this story has been so captivating? Beyonce lets you see only what she wants you to see. Even the most "candid" moments in her documentary Life Is But A Dream were transmitted through a filtered screen and some kind of exclusive lighting. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

There’s only one story, right? The main story: Beyonce, Jay Z, and Solange Knowles. More on that later this morning. Worry though about the person who released that video. Because The Beygency is real.

We’re not even halfway through yet and already 2014 could be a legendary year in gossip. Gwyneth Paltrow is getting divorced. George Clooney is getting married. Elevator drama with the Carters. And Tom Cruise has a movie to promote. Don’t you smell it? Something’s coming for us.

And Cannes kicks off in two days.

And Chris Martin and Alexa Chung.

So, to borrow a word from my Mimi, why are we trifling with a Parisian wedding?

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

A message from the Carters

Nets game last night in Brooklyn. The Carters came with a message: We’re good. This just hours after TMZ posted the video of Solange Knowles losing her sh-t on Jay Z in an elevator after the MET Gala after-party. Love reading all your interpretations of what went down in there. Some of you think B’s inaction is implied support of her sister. Full Story

This story is blowing up. TMZ has now released extended footage of what happened in that elevator between Solange Knowles, Jay Z, and Beyonce. If you’re trying to understand what went down that night, if you’re looking for hints, clues, anything that might reveal the truth, it’s worth watching through the entire 3 minutes. Full Story

Holy. Sh-t. TMZ just posted video taken after the MET Gala last week inside an elevator featuring Beyonce, Jay Z, and Solange. Check out Solange going full postal on Jay. I mean, she wants to beat the living sh-t out of him. And Beyonce, Beyonce is just standing there. Like, she could be somewhere else, anywhere else. Full Story

Sorry I had to make a tie. I just can’t decide between these two. Let’s start with Beyonce because I don’t want to get disappeared. Also, on our team we allllll agreed on this. She nailed it. She got it. She GOT IT. Riccardo Tisci wouldn’t dare do to her what he did to Kanye West’s fiancée last year. Full Story

I thought Andrew Garfield did a great job on Saturday Night Live this weekend. Good energy, good commitment, and of course Emma Stone was part of it. Definitely one of the strongest hosts of the season. Even his closing remarks were endearing. And did you see them at the end there, before they hugged? She was like, “You did it!” And the 14 year old in me almost cried. Full Story

Page Six is reporting exclusively that Beyonce and Jay-Z will tour together this summer: 20 cities in the US starting in June and they may do the Fourth of July in New York. Because it’s New York and “4” is their favourite number. Full Story

Beyonce performs in Dublin tonight. Yesterday she and Jay Z took the Blue Ivy Carter to the playground. F-ck me, she looks good in those black jeans under the bomber, doesn’t she? Jay’s been travelling with her for a couple of weeks now. (Just like Rihanna’s been travelling with Drake, ahem. Full Story

I’ve said it many, many times: I’m all about a pom-pom hat. But a DOUBLE pom-pom hat? My world is changed forever. Naturally, Beyonce’s the one wearing it (Eugenia Kim). And I just ordered it. Too bad it doesn’t come in white. B and Jay Z were at the Nets game last night where they met up with Russell Wilson, the Super Bowl winning quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks, West Coast represent! (Although it picks my ass that Eli Manning has more rings than his brother. Full Story

We’re so used to the signature elements of a Beyonce production – the tight choreography, a dance army, the SPECTACLE, the grandeur – that the stripped down intimacy of her Drunk In Love performance with Jay Z totally worked for me. And to be honest, I’m never going to hate on that dance move. Full Story

Jay-Z and Jake Gyllenhaal met up for lunch yesterday. The paps are calling it a “meeting”. But these two have been friends for a while. It’s not the first time they’ve hung out. Unfortunately Beyonce and the B.I.C. were not with them. They had their own plans in the city. Blue joined her mother at work and was seen being carried out of an office building late in the day. Full Story

You know what would be unacceptable? Unacceptable is Yeah, But-ing after a Beyonce show. She wouldn’t allow it. I’ll drop it again, one of my favourite celebrity factoids: THEY’RE THE SAME AGE, Beyonce and Britney. The.Same.Age. So anyway, imagine you’re at the club one night and Beyonce and Jay-Z show up? That’s what happened on Friday at Reign in Atlanta. Full Story

The numbers were just released late morning -- over 800,000 albums sold in just 3 days. Beyonce set some records. Don't ask me what records. Some kind of record. 3 days! With no promotion! Did you? I did, obviously. And happily. You know why? Value. It's not just the songs, it's also the videos. Full Story
