Remember back in the day when Beyonce Knowles-Carter crushed Keri Hilson's career under her manicured thumb? They apparently ended their feud.

In a recent interview, Keri said that's all water under the bridge now.

The "Pretty Girl Rock" singer, 38, said in a new interview that the two stars had a "healing" moment that ended any tension between them. "She actually has introduced herself. It was a gracious moment," the Georgia native revealed during an appearance on Middays With Persia. "I appreciated it. I feel like she understood what happened, what had transpired and there was a bit of healing in that moment when we met. I take her as a very intuitive kind of soul, as am I." Source

No one knows what set off the legendary cat fight.

Rumor has it that Beyonce, 40, was intimidated by Keri's beauty. Her husband, Jay Z, was reportedly sweet on the 38-year-old singer/songwriter.

It's easy to see why Beyonce was jealous.

Envy may be one of the reasons why Beyonce relentlessly ruined Keri's career.

Days after rap legend DMX died, rumors spread that Jay Z and Beyonce purchased his masters for his 15 children.

However, DMX's family says the rumors are not true.

DMX, real name Earl Simmons, died a week after he allegedly overdosed on drugs. He was 50.

Rumors swirled that Jay Z and his wife, Beyonce snapped up the late rapper's master recordings for $10 million as part of a lucrative deal.

Streams and downloads of DMX's songs soared after his death. A total of 75.7 million audio and video streams were counted on April 9 and 10, WENN.com reported.

Rumor had it that Jay and Bey planned to split the proceeds from the streaming sales with DMX's 15 children.

But the late rapper's family members shot down the rumors.

"No one has bought Earl's masters," the family said in a statement to Billboard.

The family also urged fans to be aware of anyone selling merchandise to raise funds for DMX's funeral.

"Additionally, we are not selling any merch (merchandise) or raising money for Earl's funeral. If anyone is requesting for money for his funeral please be aware the person is a scammer. We will keep the public posted on funeral/memorial service arrangements."

In a separate statement to Complex, DMX's family said: "There have been a few rumors following our loved one, Earl Simmons', passing that we'd like to clear up. No one has bought Earl’s masters."

Beyonce Knowles-Carter and her husband, rapper Jay Z, attended a Grammys after party at Di Girogio Baldi restaurant after she made Grammy history as the winningest woman on Sunday night.

Beyonce almost triggered a cancel culture meltdown on social media when she arrived at the restaurant without a face covering.

California still has draconian Covid-19 restrictions such as face mask mandates in place -- and violation can result in a fine of $1,000.

When someone reminded Beyonce of the face mask laws, she covered her mouth and nose with her hand -- as her frantic assistant rushed to get her a mask.

The assistant helped Beyonce put on her face mask because Jay Z refused to let go of her hand. How adorable is that?

The 39-year-old fashion plate wore a custom silver metallic Burberry ensemble featuring nail head mesh embroidery, a crystal-embellished corset bodice and a matching head wrap with a sheer veil covering her face, according to PEOPLE.

Megan Thee Stallion picked up three Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday night. She appeared stunned and choked back tears when she realized she'd won the Best New Artist award, making her the first female rapper to win the award in 22 years after Lauren Hill took home the honor in 1999.

The 26-year-old rapper won Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance, and Best Rap Song award with her "Savage" collaborator Beyonce.

Megan thanked her competition, including singer Doja Cat, pictured right, in her acceptance speech.

"First of all, I wanna say, everybody is amazing. Every artist that was nominated for this award is so amazing." She also thanked God, her team, and her late mother.

The Houston rapper also won for the Best Rap Song trophy with her idol, Beyonce. They held hands as the two superstars took to the stage outside the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The rapper giggled through her acceptance speech after the "Crazy In Love" singer initially left her speechless. "If you know me, you have to know that ever since I was little I was like, 'You know what, one day when I grow up I'm gonna be, like, the rap Beyonce'. That was definitely my goal," she said.

"I remember I went to the (Houston) Rodeo for the first time and I saw Destiny's Child perform and I was like..., 'I love her work ethic, I love the way she is, I love the way she carried herself', and my mama will always be like, 'Megan, what would Beyonce do...?'"

Holding back tears, she also thanked Beyonce's husband, Jay Z, for "putting me on Roc Nation", and she added, "My life has changed."

Beyonce also shared the love, telling Megan, "I have so much respect for you and I'm honored that you asked me to be part of this song."

Rap legend Nas won his first ever trophy for Best Rap Album at the 63rd annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Nas, born Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones, finally won a Grammy Award for his hard work and dedication to his craft. The 47-year-old rapper took home the Best Rap Album trophy for King's Disease, which dropped in 2020.

The "Crazy in Love" singer picked up four trophies, including Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for her "Savage" collaboration with fellow Texan Megan Thee Stallion, taking her career Grammy wins to 28.

Legendary music producer Jimmy Jam presented the award to Beyonce, stating, "History has just been made. Breaking the all-time record for the most Grammy wins ever by any female artist or any singer, male or female, the Grammy goes to Beyonce."

The stunned star, pictured with Jay Z, took the mic and said, "As an artist, I believe it's my job - and all of our jobs - to reflect the times. It's been such a difficult time, so I wanted to uplift, encourage and celebrate all of the beautiful black queens and kings that continue to inspire me and inspire the whole world.

"This is so overwhelming. I've been working my whole life, since nine years old and I can't believe this happened. It's such a magical night."

Beyonce's daughter, Blue Ivy, won her first Grammy award for her mother's single "Brown Skin Girl", which was named Best Music Video.
 

Kanye Omari West won his 22nd Grammy Award to tie with Beyonce's husband, Jay Z, for most Grammy Awards won by a rapper.

Kanye, 43, won the Grammy for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album for Jesus is King, which he released to much fanfare in 2019.

Kanye is just one win away from a setting a record for most Grammys won by a hip-hop artist. The father-of-four, who is in the midst of a divorce from Kim Kardashian, wasn't present to pick up his award.
 

The 2021 Grammy Awards was hosted by Trevor Noah, host of "The Daily Show," who was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The 37-year-old TV personality said he hoped the Grammy Awards could signify "new beginnings" as he joked that the show "celebrated the music that got us through the last 10 years of coronavirus".

He also joked about coronavirus vaccines, saying, the music is "about bringing us all together as only music can. Well, I mean, music and vaccines."

In fact, the "Woke" Grammys was all about diversity, inclusion, coronavirus and vaccines. Celebrities preached about vaccines, social distancing and mask wearing -- although few stars wore masks onstage or behind the scenes.

Beyonce paid tribute to a late superfan by sharing an emotional video montage of her hits on social media.

Lyric Chanel lost her two-year battle with brain cancer on Friday, March 5, and Beyonce used her music to pay her respects to the 13-year-old fan, singing beautiful renditions of "Brown Skin Girl", "Love on Top", and "Halo."

"Lyric it's you/ You're the one I love/ And you're the one I need. You're the only thing I see/ Come on Lyric it's you/ You're the one that gives your all/ You're the one I can always call/ When I need you baby everything stops/ You put my love on top."

She signed off the video with a short message, saying, "I love you with all my heart."

The R&B superstar reportedly called and sang to the youngster before she passed away. Bey, 39, previously sent flowers to her teenage superfan back in September, which her family documented on social media.

The teen inspired many on Instagram with her upbeat personality despite her medical condition.

According to theGrio, Lyric often shared videos of herself singing along to her favorite Beyonce songs. Bey herself saw the videos and reached out with heartfelt messages and gifts on multiple occasions.

In October, Beyonce sent Lyric a gift box packed with coveted Ivy Park merchandise from the fall release. TheGrio reported she received the full line of clothing, shoes and accessories.

"Thank you so much @beyonce this couldn't have come at a better time," she wrote in the caption to one of the videos. "[I] just got back from the getting Chemo and look at the surprise that was waiting. I love you so much.”

American singer Beyonce Knowles-Carter sent a message of support to Meghan Markle following her tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey on Sunday.

Beyonce took to her website to voice her support for the former "Suits" actress, who was heavily criticized for claiming she was suicidal after marrying into the royal family.

"Thank you Meghan for your courage and leadership. We are all strengthened and inspired by you," Beyonce wrote.

Beyonce and her husband, Jay Z, right, previously met the Duchess and her husband, Harry Windsor, left, at the London premiere of The Lion King in July 2019.

Markle was ruthlessly dragged on the Internet for claiming she was having suicidal thoughts.

One Sandrarose.com user commented that if Markle was suicidal after marrying into the royal family, she had mental issues long before then.

Buckingham Palace issued a statement on Tuesday insisting that it was taking the Duchess' claims of racism "very seriously".

During their sit-down conversation, the Duchess told Oprah that Harry had been asked by an unnamed family member "how dark" their son's skin might be.

During the interview, Harry also revealed he felt "trapped" by his royal duties.

He claimed he didn't know he was trapped until he met Markle.

"I myself was trapped. I didn't see a way out. I was trapped but I didn't know I was trapped."

Beyonce's father Mathew Knowles is livid that some people are comparing his superstar daughter to her protege, Chloe Bailey of Chloe and Halle.

During an interview on the "Leah's Lemonade" radio show, host Leah A. Henry asked Mathew what he thought about the comparisons between Chloe and a younger Beyonce.

"Do you see the comparison? Like the same thing that you saw in young Beyonce, do you see that in Chloe Bailey?" Leah asked.

Mathew seemed shocked that anyone would compare a superstar to an aspiring singer without one hit song under her belt:

"You've got to be kidding me, right? You're asking me that question? Are you actually serious that you are comparing that young lady to Beyonce?"

Leah then pointed out that many (young) fans have suggested Chloe would be a good fit to play Beyonce in a movie about the singer's life.

"Okay, you're talking about if somebody was doing a movie, not talent-wise", he responded.

When Leah said "they say she's literally like a young Beyonce in the making", Mathew replied: "I'm asking you a yes or no question. Are you telling me someone's an idiot enough to compare her to Beyonce, talent-wise? Are there people saying her talent is equal to Beyonce? They’re an idiot. Period."

He continued: "That's actually insulting to Beyonce. I mean, if you want to call out some like Barbra Streisand or you know, some people like that, like come on, man, really?... I want to get off this topic."

Neither Chloe, nor Beyonce, have responded to Mathew's remarks as WENN went to press.

Beyonce's charity is donating $1,000 each to Texas residents affected by the deadly winter storms.

The mom-of-three is pictured above posing shirtless under an unzipped jacket in an ad campaign for her Ivy Park x Adidas clothing line.

Snow storms - including Winter Storm Uri - brought record low temperatures to the state, leaving several dead and millions of Americans without power, heat, and clean water.

Widespread blackouts were reported across the state since last week.

Houston native Beyonce and her BeyGOOD foundation joined forces with Adidas and the city's food poverty non-profit Bread of Life to offer financial assistance to those who are in crisis.

Applications for up to $1,000 can be made via Bread of Life's Disaster Relief Assistance Application Form.

The "Halo" hitmaker - who shares 9-year-old daughter Blue Ivy and three-year-old twins, Sir and Rumi Carter, with husband Jay-Z - wrote on her Instagram Story: "BeyGOOD and Adidas are working with Bread of Life to bring urgent relief to those suffering as a result of the winter storms. If you are in Texas or any state affected by these storms, you can apply for assistance at breadoflifeinc.org/disasterrelief."

In December, BeyGOOD donated $500,000 to people at risk of eviction owing to the current COVID-19 crisis.

BeyGOOD has also supported black-owned small businesses amid the Covid-19 outbreak, as well as donating $6 million to mental health wellness.

Charitable donations are eligible for huge tax write-offs come tax time.
