Most good decent people have a moral line they will not cross. That line was crossed on BET’s 106 & Park yesterday when guest host Karrueche Tran (Chris Brown’s on-again, off-again concubine) disrespected Beyonce and Jay Z’s daughter, Blue Ivy. Karrueche mentioned Blue Ivy’s unkempt hair days in a skit which didn’t go over well with the BET audience or Black Twitter, the monolithic, influential collective of opinionated black users on Twitter.com.
Pop singer Beyonce shut down the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards with a nearly 20-minute, unforgettable performance of selections off her multiplatinum self-titled album. But it was her 2-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, who stole the show with her winning smile, dancing skills, and her fashionable attire.
The last 2 months have been an emotional roller coaster for pop singer Beyonce Knowles-Carter. After coming off her own successful world tour, Beyonce and her husband, Jay Z, embarked on a joint national tour together. But instead of celebrating the success of $100 million in ticket sales, the couple has been forced to recruit friends and family to battle vicious rumors that they are divorcing.
Last week, Beyonce‘s camp apparently planted a rumor on the blogs suggesting a remix featuring Bey and arch rival Rihanna was in the works. A listing on the ASCAP music database website seemed to confirm the rumor.
Beyonce apparently went slumming for a feature artist to hop on the remix to her single “Blow”.
According to a new posting on the music industry database ASCAP, Beyonce and Rihanna are listed as artists on the new remix. The song writers are also listed but no other information on the song is available.
When social media took the place of expensive publicists (some of whom charge $250 per hour), savvy celebrities figured out how to use the social platform to create fake scandals and PR stunts for cheap publicity.
Most notably, power couple Jay Z and BeYaki are accused of pulling off one of the biggest stunts of the year — faking marital problems to boost sagging concert ticket sales. Apparently their stunt worked: the tour reportedly took in over $100 million in tickets sales.
Less notably, reality TV star Draya Michele reportedly pulled a similar stunt by taking to Instagram to announce she and fiancé, NFL player Orlando Scandrick, had split up.
Power couple Kanye and Kim Kardashian-West seem to be saying it’s better to make Love — and not war — on an elevator. This photo is in obvious reference to Jay Z getting body slammed on an elevator by Beyonce’s unstable sister, Solange Knowles.
