Beyonce vacation pictures

Beyonce Knowles updated her Tumblr page with more vacation pictures. In one photo, she is seen riding a bike with her chubby cousin Angie Beyince. Maybe Angie should do a little more exercising and a bit less gorging on buckets of chicken wings?

Rapper 2 Chainz mentioned Beyonce's name in an interview with RapFix Live today. Chainz talked about his exposure to Beyonce's legendary bossy attitude in the studio.

"I did a record for Beyoncé. It ended up being on Dream's album, but I did a record for Beyoncé," he said, referring to the song "Turnt" from The Dream's 2013 album IV Play. "She asked me to change it, but the way she asked me made me really realize why she's in the position that she's in and the whole diva thing, and I just had mad respect for her."

Beyonce and Jay Z

Singer and socialite Beyonce continued her 35th birthday celebration with her husband, aging rapper Jay Z, in Stromboli, Italy today. When they get back to the states Jay Z needs to hit the gym to work out to get rid of that beer belly hanging over his trunks. A beer gut is not a good on a aging rapper who's trying to keep up with the young bucks.

Alfonso Ribeiro and wife Angela

Former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Alfonso Ribeiro, 41, and his twenty-something wife, Angela, took a final getaway to Hawaii before the arrival of their first baby this fall. In Touch Weekly magazine features exclusive photos of the happy couple vacation in President Obama's native land.

“We took walks on the beach, watched the sun set and played golf,” Alfonso tells In Touch. “It was incredibly relaxing and served as a wonderful opportunity for us to take the time to really appreciate and enjoy this last part of the pregnancy.”

Alfonso and his bride stayed at the Four Seasons Resort Lanai at Manele Bay, where they were pampered with belly rubs and a couples’ massage on the beach. “It was absolutely heavenly, ” Angela told In Touch.

I hope Alfonso has an iron-clad pre-nup. This is his second marriage, which also produced a child.

    Adrienne Bosh, wife of NBA Miami Heat star Chris Bosh, looks like she's suffering from an allergic reaction in her hind quarters. Maybe it was something she ate that caused her butt cheeks to swell up like that? Whatever the reason, I hope she feels better. That swelling looks painful.

    Mrs. Bosh took her son Jackson to the beach in Puerto Rico, where she attended her friends Amber Ridinger and Duane McLaughlin's wedding at the Ritz Carlton Dorado Beach.

    Chris Brown and Rihanna vacation in Hawaii

    Troubled singers Chris Brown and Rihanna frolicked on the sandy beaches in Hawaii not far from President Obama's home. Rihanna, who turned 25, wore a red bikini under her fishnet stockings to celebrate her birthday. The couple made sure the paparazzi got all the photos they needed as they jet skied and took romantic walks on the beach. But is it just me, or does Brown, 23, wish he were somewhere else (perhaps with the real love of his life, Karrueche Tran)?

    According to sources, Brown partied with Tran in Houston during the NBA All-Star weekend while Rihanna debuted her trashy clothing line in London.
