Jay Z Gossip
Jay Z gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
The MTV VMA nominations were announced yesterday. How do you get Beyonce to come to your show? You put her name in as many categories as possible. It’s not like she didn’t give them an entire album’s worth of chances.
The VMAs are happening on August 24th. Guess what? Beyonce just happens to be available. She and Jay Z take On The Run to San Francisco on August 6 and then they break until September 12 for two shows in Paris that will be filmed for the HBO special.
The last time Beysus was at the VMAs it was 2011. She performed Love On Top…and hijacked the entire show with a mic drop belly-rub to announce her pregnancy. I remember it vividly. Because Sasha was crying at me over text. Sh-t, even I was excited, and I don’t really get excited about babies. That’s Beyonce. Read Full Intro
On The Run. I need a day to process. It was a narrative for sure. And we debated it endlessly afterwards – what was her message? Or is the message just that it’s just a major mind f-ck? All I can tell you right now is that I never, ever, ever want them to break up.
As for how On The Run stands on concert quality – I’ll say this: better than The Mrs Carter Show. And when I say this, you know I mean it’s all in degrees of excellence, right? The Beyonce standard never dips below and A. It’s just…how far beyond A she manages to take it. A lot of it had to do with the quality of the interlude films. At times during Mrs Carter, those videos were kinda amateur. Now, I guess with all that work she did on the secret album-video drop last December, she’s figured it out how to make that aspect of her live performance even better. Read Full Intro

Check out the Carters, Beyonce and Jay Z On The Run in Philadelphia on Friday, celebrating the Fourth. At the end of the show, after Forever Young, Jay pulled B in for a hug and kiss. As you know, there were rumours all last week that Beyonce changed the lyrics to Resentment, and everyone was speculating that he cheated on her, and that she’s readying to leave him after the tour.

Beyonce and Jay Z’s On The Run stopped in Ohio on Saturday. During a performance of her song Resentment, which is about being cheated on, Beyonce, while wearing a wedding dress, changed a lyric in the song that many believe is a sign that the Carters are cracking, and that Jay stepped out on her, and that she’s publicly calling him out for it.

Rome fell, The Beatles broke up, even Melrose Place was cancelled eventually, because all great things must crumble, but will Beyoncé’s ruin be brought about by a ninth tier, never-really-was, Bravo reality star/VIP cocktail hostess? Right now, a woman named Casey Cohen, who you are VERY familiar with if you watched Princesses: Long Island and completely confused by if you didn’t, is working to deny a story from IN TOUCH that she’s been Jay Z’s side chick since meeting him at 1Oak, a club where she serves drinks.

Beyonce was seen at her office in New York yesterday with some new very long braids. Sh-t. That must be heavy. I get hair headaches all the time just from the added weight of hairspray. Happily, Beyonce has stopped getting desperate on all her social media accounts to convince us that her perfect life really is perfect. Full Story

Down to ride ‘til the very end It’s me and boyfriend It’s been a week since we saw Solange Knowles try to put a hole through Jay Z’s dick with stiletto in an elevator. Not surprisingly, SNL parodied it on the season finale as the cold open. “Kick it!” Also, note the wind machine. Full Story
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
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,

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
