Today is February 13. It’s Coachella in exactly two months. That would make it Friday, April 13. So we’re exactly two months plus a day before Beyoncé returns to the stage at Coachella.

Last year, like her husband this year, Beyoncé went into the Grammys as the most-nominated artist on the strength of Lemonade, widely considered to be a masterpiece. The Recording Academy let her win the “urban” category. Album of the Year, the crown category, went to Adele. Beyoncé  has never won album of the year. Full Story

It happened again this year. Lainey and I went back and forth on whether Blue Ivy deserved her own post. We had the same conversation last year. Last year, James Corden had Blue to thank for saving his job and, quite frankly, his career when she swooped in and saved an awkward sketch Full Story

Beyoncé’s twin pregnancy announcement on February 1 was the most liked Instagram post of the year – and of all time so far. Records are made to be broken. The question is… which Instagram post can beat THAT Instagram post? And who will be the one to do it? Selena Gomez is the most followed person on Instagram, followed by Cristiano Ronaldo. Full Story

Jay-Z hasn’t called himself Young Hov in a while. It’s been so long, the other day I was asked what Hov meant and I blanked. Jay gave himself a nickname that forever tied him to his youth (and divinity) but I think he’s retired it. Full Story

Jay-Z’s interview with Pulitzer award winning journalist Dean Baquet for T Magazine should be digested in full. I read the transcription of their conversation first, complete with annotations by two of my favourite New York Times’ writers, then watched the corresponding video. Full Story

The Grammys, like the Oscars, have been criticised in the past for its archaic voting processes and its lack of representation.

Jay-Z is a perfectionist. If you've heard 4:44, you know this to be true. Every lyric, every vocal, every snare and every freaking breath is precise. According to Jay, his perfectionism is the cause of his decision to cancel multiple shows during his current 4:44 tour. Full Story
