Beyoncé was a surprise guest at the premiere of Taylor Swift’sThe Eras Tour movie at The Grove in LA on October 11, but there was a reason for her to be there. A music industry insider told me the two superstars are working together on a DUET! Beyoncé and Taylor have been forever bonded since the 2009 VMA’s when Kayne West rudely stormed the stage as Taylor was accepting her award, hijacked the microphone, and yelled that Beyoncé should have won. Polite Beyoncé was horrified by Kayne’s gesture, but there WAS a silver lining. Ever since then, she and Taylor have formed a friendship and a bond. Fast forward almost 15 years later and they’re FINALLY getting around to recording a duet, which will probably top the charts and shatter records. The current plan is for their song to be released in unison with the premier of Beyoncé’s concert movie, but that could change…
Feud, what feud? For years, rumors have swirled that two of music’s biggest stars, Rihanna and Beyonce, were at odds. The tales got so vicious that some claimed Rihanna had an affair with Beyoncé’s husband, Jay-Z. While that rumor was quickly dispelled, the feud story seems to live on. According to our source there is NO feud. Need more proof? For Beyoncé’s 42nd birthday on September 4, Riri sent her 420 long stemmed roses arranged in a Buccellati sterling silver vase. Why Sterling silver? Beyoncé has been asking her concert guests to wear silver to help her celebrate the last month of her tour.
Beyoncé is having a star studded birthday party and YOU are invited… IF you can afford the steep ticket price! Beyoncé is turning 42 on September 4 and she’s performing in LA that day on her Renaissance World Tour. Our source says lucky concertgoers can expect to see a fabulous bunch of surprise guests joining Queen Bey on stage as she celebrates her birthday. The final details are still being worked out, but potential performers include her husband Jay-Z, Madonna, Britney Spears, Chris Martin and even a Destiny’s Child mini reunion with Kelly Rowland! For the majority of us who won’t be there, the plan is to tape the concert and sell it to a streaming service….of course.
Louis Vuitton presented their spring menswear collection in Paris and it’s a whole new world thanks to their new Creative Director- Pharrell Williams. A crowd of celebrities gathered outside and we had to look twice at what we thought was Kim Kardashian in her blonde wig. But it turned out to be Beyonce in LV satin pajamas! There IS a resemblance. On second thought it couldn’t be Kim – she’d NEVER wear such a loose fitting outfit. We located Kim inside (in a tight bodysuit) sitting next to a scary version of Jared Leto. Did he shave his eyebrows off? He’s been looking more and more like a freaked out Jesus…
Because she was nominated for her song Be Alive from King Richard, Beyonce is blessing the Oscars with a much-needed live performance on the show. The website Gawker has calculated the it is highly probable that Beyonce is NOT vaccinated. The Oscars require that all nominees and guests show proof of vaccination and negative tests before they can attend the show. Strangely, PERFORMERS and presenters will only need to be tested in accordance with LA County rules. Did the Academy have different rules for performers because they REALLY want Beyonce on the show? Also suspicious- recently Beyonce did NOT attend the ceremony when her husband Jay-Z was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame– where proof of vaccination was required.
Getting married in India has turned into a huge competition for the MOST glamour and extravagance – at least among the billionaire families. The richest man in India, Mukesh Ambani, (net worth 43.4 billion) was determined to have the biggest and best event for his daughter Isha, who married another billionaire. The invitations were fancy chests full of gifts. The 100 million dollar week-long party included entertainment by Beyonce. IMAGINE how much she must have been paid! Isha, a Yale graduate, now will presumably leave the 27 story home she grew up in, which includes multi level gardens and 3 helipads! It’s both fascinating and horrifying…

Somehow the names of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s twins slipped through their veil of secrecy and turned out to be Suni and Sir. “Suni” is a Japanese name implying beauty and grace. “Sir” is a title of respect implying a high ranking gentleman – a lord or a knight. Now if the Carters named their DAUGHTER Sir, we’d be fine with that. Males don’t need titles to think they’re better than everyone else. It would be a clever turning of the tables and equalizer for the girl. But if the BOY is named Sir, we wonder why his twin wasn’t named Madam or Ma’am – the female counterpart. One thing we know- whoever got the name “Sir” is in for a lot of teasing and mocking.
Are we alone in thinking this picture of Beyonce is ridiculously cheesy and Kardashian style exhibitionistic? If it were on the cover of some magazine we never heard of, it wouldn’t be so puzzling. But SHE created this photo herself – and paid for it – to present to THE PUBLIC! She’s posed in her UNDERWEAR holding her belly with a gauzy veil over her head, implying something religious. And that Demi Moore smirk! She’s surrounded by a funereal display of flowers – as if someone said – “We need more color- add flowers!” We’re happy about her twins, but there are less creepy ways to make such an announcement! This is beneath Beyonce.
Jay Z and Beyonce brought their little girl Blue Ivy to her first premier – “Annie” – in New York, and she’s only 2! No doubt there are many red carpet events in her future. Ivy looks more like a female version of her father every day – she’s even got daddy’s eyebrows!
You don’t see this very often. The first family of music, Beyonce, Jay-Z. and their baby Blue all went shopping at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills and rode the escalator with ordinary shoppers. The makeup department must have gone into overdrive with excitement when they arrived. Blue is carrying a tiny shopping bag full of samples. From what we can see Blue is the best dressed of the three – Jay looks drab and Beyonce is wearing Daisy Dukes.
