Beyonce Knowles Gossip
Beyonce Knowles gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
Beyonce and JayZ play two shows in Paris tonight and tomorrow to end the On The Run tour. These performances will be filmed for HBO and will air next weekend, for those subscribers who’ve not had the opportunity to see the show live.
And then what?
Then, if you believe the rumours, then it’s done. At least that’s the Page Six and US Weekly version of how it’s supposed to roll out. Have you read Taylor Swift’s cover feature in Rolling Stone yet? She talks about the great lengths she goes to to protect her music from leaks. Like it can only be listened to on headphones because of wiretapping concerns (!!!) and Jack Antonoff compared “having her songs on my hard drive makes me feel like I have Russian secrets or something. It's terrifying". Read Full Intro
They were in Portofino. Taking time off to celebrate her birthday which was last week. Not sure how that's unlike every other day. Aren't we always celebrating Beyonce? Beyonce wanted to reward us for celebrating her. So she posted a photo of herself, obviously, on Instagram, contorting her body, because nothing says "thank you fans" like giving the world an opportunity to marvel at her body. Full Story

It was Beyonce’s 33rd birthday yesterday. She celebrated in the south of France with the Blue Ivy Carter and JayZ. Click here to see pictures. I think that’s Tina Knowles. There’s another angle to all this speculation as to whether or not the Carters are a mess behind closed doors or whether or not they’ve just been playing. Full Story
TIFF 2014 opens today. For those of us working the festival, that's the main focus. I feel like people are going to be parking themselves downtown all weekend to stalk Channing Tatum. Virgin 99.9 Radio's Maura Grierson is putting out a bounty -- $1000 to anyone who can get him to call into the station to talk to her.
But TIFF isn't the only story. Especially not on this day. For some people, there's only one thing that matters on September 4th. September 4th is B-Day. Beyonce Day. Beyonce Birthday. How do we celebrate Beyonce Day? This morning our site was glitchy for about an hour. I feel like the Beygency would have our asses if we don’t dedicate the open to their leader.
Quick programming note for the next week or so during TIFF. Read Full Intro

Oh look. It’s Beyonce and JayZ at his Made In America Festival on Sunday night. He’s touching her, and rather intimately. She looks like she’s enjoying it. She also knows she’s being photographed. So, by all means, please continue to speculate. You want more to speculate about? Check her Instagram Full Story

For the last two years Beyoncé has owned our hearts and minds – for me, Life Is But A Dream marked a real turning point in the marketing of Queen B, but as far back as 2008 she was telling us that she was going to run the world. Beyoncé married Jay Z in 2008, her parents split in 2009 (it took them a few years to hammer out the divorce), and in 2011 she dropped her father as her manager. Full Story
The Blue Ivy Carter has NO problem being up there in front of thousands of screaming people, non? In fact, that kid wants the microphone, like, now. As if a child of the Beysus would ever have stage fright. Not when her mother is the main event and everyone else the warmup. Not when she turned the MTV Video Music Awards into her own concert. You want to know why the rest of the show was so sh-t and poorly produced, with snakes biting dancers in rehearsal and missed cues and late switching and microphone checks at the wrong times? The entire budget was spent on the last 15 minutes.
That’s why Maroon 5 was the house band. God I loved that so much. Beyonce did that. So we’ll get to the Beyonce Video Music Awards and other gossip from the weekend and then we shift focus to the Emmy Awards tonight. Duana and I will be liveblogging starting at 7:30pm ET and there will be a full 30+ article recap tomorrow. Two all-nighters in a row – join us!
Yours in gossip,

There is nothing else. Nothing left. Nothing but Beyonce. You know, somehow JLO’s Slum Bear, Casper Smart, found a job choreographing for Nicki Minaj. That sh-t doesn’t feel shame but he should. Because everything else was a mess compared to what Beyonce delivered – her ENTIRE album, much of it reworked from On The Run for this, her MTV Video Vanguard moment, so that there could be no question about Who Is The Greatest? Now? It’s just Beyonce. Full Story
Wait, I thought the rumour was that Carrie Underwood was performing at halftime at the Super Bowl …? Instead the Wall Street Journal reported the other day that the NFL has invited Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Coldplay …but that if they want the gig, they have to pay the league for the opportunity. The artists’ reaction? A “chilly reception”.
HBO has released a trailer for the upcoming On The Run concert film that’s to be shot in Paris in September, then airing on HBO Canada and HBO on September 20. So if the Carter Corporation is dissolving, it won’t be until then. At least? We should have a better idea, or what we think is a better idea, in 6 days on Sunday, at the MTV VMAs.
Someone emailed to ask a very good question this weekend: Beyonce managed to lock down an entire album, 17 songs and videos, but how is it that EVERYONE seems to be talking sh-t and they can’t control those leaks?
Over the weekend she posted a photo of a set of open handcuffs. OMG IS IT A MESSAGE?
What does Beyonce hate the most? She hates it when other people are telling HER story. Will she let them be right? Because if she does this, if she walks away from Jay and her marriage, she makes them right. Read Full Intro
The internet is reporting that Beyonce and Rihanna might be collaborating on a remix of B’s song Blow. Apparently a track has been registered that has both their names on it. Click here to see. You believe? I believe that if it’s true, it’s another OBVIOUS IN YOUR FACE way for B to address some of those rumours. Full Story

Taylor Swift was on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Wednesday. She wore black and white. Then she changed into something else that was black and white before heading home. The hair is still not ideal. The shoe game however is working. While talking to Fallon, Taylor confirmed that she will perform at the MTV VMAs on August 24. Full Story

Beyonce posted these shots of herself to Instagram earlier this week: Um, I love those apron pants. I need them. Anyway, according to US Weekly, Beyonce was staying at Gwyneth Paltrow’s LA estate. You think B has to ask G for permission before she publishes pictures taken inside G’s home? Anyone else, of course. Full Story
“Of course, sometimes sh-t go down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator.”
Ohhhhh…so is that why Solange Knowles went at JayZ with all four limbs and probably a lot of foam at the mouth?
Beyonce’s cash register says “yes”.
She almost broke the internet and social media again this weekend when she dropped a surprise new track: the Flawless remix with Nicki Minaj and a few choice lyric changes, including the above reference to what went down between her husband and his sister earlier this year and this:
“You wish I was your pound cake.”
Does that mean no one’s telling her to eat the cake?
Beyonce keeps making up riddles about herself and we are supposed to keep asking, keep wondering. Read Full Intro
