Beyonce and Jay Z at dinner

Beyonce and her aging rapper husband, Jay Z, left their 1-year-old daughter Blue Ivy with a team of nannies and security back at their hotel so they could enjoy a night out alone Friday. MailOnline reports that Beyonce and Jay Z ate an intimate dinner at the trendy Ink restaurant in West Hollywood. Word spread quickly that they were there, and soon a swarm of paparazzi and fans descended upon them as they left the restaurant.

Is Alicia Keys pregnant

I just received word from a well-connected source that R&B singer Alicia Keys plans to announce her pregnancy at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards this Sunday in Hollywood. The baby will be the 2nd child for Keys, 33, who performed at will.i.am's pre-Grammy event Thursday. The baby's father is music producer Swizz Beatz. Please do not quote me on this. This tea has not been officially confirmed. But don't forget where you heard it first!

    Jay Z and Beyonce have a problem. They have to figure out how to shield their 1-year-old daughter Blue Ivy from the prying paparazzi. She's a toddler now, and soon they won't be able to hide her under a blanket for too much longer.

    I hear that Beyonce is "terrified" at the thought of the public criticizing her daughter's looks (they say BIC is looking more and more like her father every day).

    Beyonce has had a hard week. Her dazzling Super Bowl performance was marred by a blog who posted some of the most hideous photos of any artist I have ever seen. The blog, Buzzfeed, refused Behyonce's instructions to remove the photos. As a result, I am told there will be no photography allowed during Beyonce's upcoming world tour -- unless Beyonce herself approves the photographs herself.

    All of these women are high maintenance beauties who go to great lengths to make sure their style game is always on point when they step out in public. These women pay extra attention to their hair and nails, because that's what most women criticize for some odd reason.

    1. Let's begin with these Chanel inspired nails. This woman is living a lie. Her marriage crumbled months ago, but she's keeping up public appearances until her reality TV show goes off the air. Then she will be heading to divorce court. Who is she?

    Chris Brown and mother Joyce Hawkins

    Chris Brown, 23, was raised by a deeply religious woman: his mother, Joyce Hawkins. So when Brown posted one of his Jesus paintings on Instagram -- comparing himself to Jesus Christ's crucifixion and resurrection -- I'm told his mother went ballistic.

    In response to his mother's rejection, which hurt him deeply, and the public's constant criticism of every move he makes, Brown deleted his Instagram page yesterday. But not before, once again, blaming others for his problems.

    Atlanta superstars TI, Tiny, Ciara and Future were seen leaving Crustacean's restaurant in Beverly Hills today (Jan. 28).

Ciara is reportedly dating Future, whose anemic song with Rihanna, titled "Love", is in heavy rotation on the radio. Ciara and one of Future's baby mamas have been been at war with each other for at least a week on social networking websites.

    Beyonce Super Bowl setlist

    Karaoke singer Beyonce is in New Orleans preparing to upstage the 49ers and the Ravens in the Super Bowl the same way she upstaged President Obama's Inauguration by lip-syncing.

    Insiders whisper that Beyonce had no intentions of performing the National Anthem live during the Inauguration -- even though Bey claimed she was prepared to sing live. I'm told the Obamas were so upset at her deceptive ways that they disinvited Beyonce and Jay Z from the Inaugural ball. I don't know if that's true, so please don't quote me.

    New York Post Beyonce Jay Z Peter King

    This will sting Jay Z's already bruised ego:

    Rep. Pete King was snapping photos of the stars at Monday’s Inauguration – and wound up on the cover of the New York Post. The headline: “First Couple! (Well, almost) Pols fawn over Beyoncé, Jay-Z at Inaugural.”

    In King’s defense, that’s only half true. The congressman tweeted Tuesday that while he recognized Beyoncé, who sang the National Anthem, he didn’t know “the guy” beside her.

    Kobe Bryant and wife Vanessa

    NBA superstar Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa attended the Golden Globe Awards 2013 in Los Angeles Sunday night. Kobe and Vanessa recently announced that they have cancelled their divorce proceedings after agreeing to make their marriage work for the sake of their 2 daughters. A friend of mine thinks Vanessa is a calculating gold digger who loves being "Mrs. Kobe Bryant". She thinks Vanessa will dump Kobe once he retires from the NBA. I hope not. I will lose a $1K bet if she does.

  • Beyonce covers GQ

    GQ magazine published some of the photos from Beyonce's cover shoot for the February issue. The stunning photos portray a woman who celebrates her sexuality, even as her husband pushes toward 50. Her toned cheerleader body belies the fact that she was ever pregnant (some still believe she never was).

    In the interview, by Andy Wallace, Beyonce says she loves being onstage:

    "I love my job, but it's more than that: I need it," she says. "Because before I gave birth, it was the only time in my life, all throughout my life, that I was lost." She means this in a good way: When her brain turns off, it is, frankly, a relief. After drilling herself, repeating every move so many times, locking them in, she can then afford not to think. "It's like a blackout. When I'm onstage, I don't know what the crap happens. I am gone... I'm like, 'Please piss me off before the performance.' I used to use everything."

    Her daughter, Blue Ivy, with rapper Jay Z, is only mentioned once in the article -- by the writer. The reader is reminded often that Beyonce is focused on branding herself. She won't stop until she has seared her image into everyone else's reality. Being a mother is what every woman is born to do. No more, no less.

    Blue Ivy playing UNO

    The Carters responded to the many pleas from Beyonce fans for a new photo of their daughter, Blue Ivy. Jay Z posted a darker version of this image of Blue Ivy tearing up a pack UNO cards on his Life+Times blog today -- one day after Blue Ivy turned 1. I lightened the photo so you can see a little detail of the infant as she sits alone at a massive table with a serene ocean view and infinity pool backdrop. Playing cards litter the floor to her left. Don't you just want to pinch her chubby cheeks?

    T.I. Mike Vick Tiny Harris

    Yesterday I posted a contest giving my readers a chance to win tickets to T.I.'s concert at the Tabernacle on Friday and box seats to the Hawks vs Bulls game at the Philips Arena on Saturday. The response was so overwhelming that Grand Hustle's GM Hannah Kang allotted more concert tickets for my readers to win. So instead of giving away 4 pair of tickets, I will give away 14 pair of tickets! That's 24 chances to win tickets to T.I.'s concert at the Tabernacle on Friday (Dec. 21)! Sadly, only 4 pair of tickets are available to meet T.I. in his Suite at the Philips Arena on Saturday.

    There is still time to submit your Trouble Man CD photos! You have until 3 PM today.

    If you were wondering why Beyonce Carter didn't attend the NY Knicks vs Brooklyn Nets rematch with her hubby Jay Z Tuesday night, it's because she was across town supporting her little sister Solange Knowles' show at the Bowery Ballroom. Bey's bestie, Kelly Rowland, also attended the show. Am I the only one who notices the crazed look in Beyonce's eyes? I used to work with mental health patients, so I instantly recognize that look when an individual is becoming unhinged.
