Beyonce and Blue Ivy Carter out and about in NYC

An appeals board shut down Beyonce's request to keep her upcoming deposition private in her trademark battle over daughter Blue Ivy Carter's name.

After the birth of Blue Ivy in 2012, the "Drunk in Love" hitmaker filed legal papers with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to trademark "Blue Ivy Carter".

Beyonce and Jay Z

Super couple Beyonce Knowles-Carter and Shawn "Jay Z" Carter dressed as Barbie and Ken dolls for their annual Halloween extravaganza in New York City. Beyonce stunned in a pink fur Barbie coat and a striped swimsuit. She accessorized her outfit with mirrored sunglasses. The couple's daughter Blue Ivy Carter, 4, had a confused expression on her face as they entered the party. Once again, a minor child is inappropriately partying with grown folks. Wasn't grandmother Tina Knowles available to babysit?

Blue Ivy Carter has so much class and grace for a 4-year-old. Kudos to her grandmother, Tina Knowles-Lawson, for passing down traditional values and class to her grandchild.

Reports coming out of Atlanta claim pop star Beyonce performed to a half empty stadium of less than enthusiastic fans on Sunday. The much-hyped Formation World Tour rolled into Altanta's Georgia Dome which seats 50,000 people. It took 6 days to set up Bey's elaborate stages which include a massive lighting and sound system, moving stages and a plexiglass walkway.
