Happy Birthday Jay-Z! Jay Takes Blue Ivy on a Daddy-Daughter Date!

Blue Ivy

Blue Ivy ain’t got no worries! And why should she? It’s her daddy’s birthday and around the corner, the 23-month old will soon be two! Today, rapper/mogul Jay-Z celebrates his 44th birthday and it appears that he’d rather be no where else but at home with his ladies. After announcing yesterday that he’d be going vegan for the month of December in an attempt to better his health, he was recently spotted spending some quality time with his leading little lady, Blue. The baby boss was spotted rocking a a pair of skinny-mini jeans, tiny floral Doc Martin boots and a custom leather jacket studded out with the words “Miss Blue Carter.” How cute! We wish the boss man a HUGE happy birthday and many, many blessings his way!

 photo spl594930_013_zps35e67393.jpg

Hot mama!  Beyonce Knowles is spending her Mrs. Carter Show world tour break chillin’ out with her fam.  And trying out new hairstyles.  The short shorts wearing mom of Blue Ivy was sporting a new blonde bob in Miami Thursday afternoon.


Check out the new look at all angles inside…

First, she chopped all her hair off (or….chopped up a wig, it’s still unclear) last week.  And Thursday, Beyonce and her hubby Jay-Z and their baby girl Blue Ivy hit up Sylvano Ristorante Italiano in Miami Beach to show off the "Grown Woman" chick’s new look.  

Bey was rocking a brand new inverted bob with a cute headband and cropped Name Brand tank to boot:

Cute shades.

Beyonce’s long time hairstylist Kim Kimble told TheYBF.com on Thursday that she wasn’t the one who cut the style Bey unveiled in photos last week. But she also didn’t flat out confirm the new look was Bey’s actual hair.  However, she did allude to it.

Seems like Mrs. Carter is simply having fun in the summertime with wiggery, weavery and possible her own locks.  Do you boo.  It all looks fab nonetheless.

The Carters’ besties Chris Martin & Gwyneth Paltrow showed up and other celebs like little sis Solange and Tika Sumpter were also there.

And now that the first 61 shows in 43 cities are over for the Mrs. Carter Show, she circles back to BK and a few other US cities this December.  And you can catch her at Jay’s and Budweiser’s Made In America Festival during Labor Day weekend.


And up in Toronto:

RAPPER’S DELIGHT: Busta Rhymes & Nicki Minaj’s “Twerk It” Video + Jay-Z Bringing Hip Hop Holidays To BARNEYS?

 photo ScreenShot2013-07-25at84848AM_zps49ae2ae8.png

Nicki Minaj is never one to miss a twerk fest.  Check out the Barb in Busta Rhymes‘ new video for his single "Twerk It" inside, plus what Jay-Z‘s up to with his collaboration with the luxe department store BARNEYS…

41-year-old Busta is still watching out for the strippers with his latest single "Twerk It."  The track appears on his upcoming E.L.E. 2 album dropping soon. 

He brought in the Trini twerk lover Nicki Minaj to lay down a few verses, so it’s only right she appears in the video too.  Check it out below.  It’s the explicit version, obvi.  So watch at your own risk:


 photo jay-z-interview-magazine-1_zps27978eba.jpg

And in other rap news, there’s a may-jah rumor circulating the fashion world that Jay-Z will be offering his talents to Barneys New York for the Holidays.  Just like with Lady Gaga & the Walt Disney Company in the recent past, the luxe department store is said to have had secret talks with Mr. Carter about an upcoming collaboration–very likely for the Holiday campaign. 

According to WWD, Barneys has remained mum when asked about the collabo talks, but with Jay’s recent musical assets that scream a love for fashion ("Tom Ford"), a collabo isn’t too far fetched.

Time will tell…

ON THE SET: Nicki Minaj SHOOTS A NEW Fragrance Campaign + Jay-Z, Justin TImberlake & MORE DENY REPORTS Of BOYCOTTING Florida

 photo nicki-fragrance-shoot-1.jpg

Nicki Minaj tweeted pics from the set of an upcoming fragrance campaign.  See the bejeweled rapper on the set and get the latest on an "alleged" boycott of Florida by some of the music industry’s top acts……..

 photo nicki-fragrance-shoot-2.jpg

Rapper Nicki Minaj posted a few snapshots from the set of her upcoming fragrance commercial.  Wearing a diamond-encrusted headband, she tweeted, "Fragrance commercial shoot with the legendary David LaChapelle 1st look #dramatic."

David LaChapelle, who also shot Nicki’s M.A.C VIVA GLAM campaign, captured the Pink Friday rapper in a pink and blond wig, a flowing pink ball gown and tons of diamonds.

Though Nicki has been secretive about the name of the new fragrance she’s working on, in a previous interview with MTV First, she spoke about the fragrance bottle design saying, "When the Barbz see that bottle—gag century. It’s going to be ca-razy."

We’ll be waiting…….


And about those "boycotts" in Florida……

 photo JayZJayZHostsLegendsSummerPartyZuP2sPUoJpTl.jpg

Representatives for Jay Z, Justin Timberlake, Madonna and others have distanced themselves from reports suggesting they’ve joined Stevie Wonder in his boycott of the state of Florida following the George Zimmerman verdict.

A few days ago, a report surfaced on American Urban Radio Networks by White House correspondent April Ryan naming Jay Z, Kanye West, Alicia Keys, Erykah Badu and other heavy-hitters as participants.

Though April stands by her report and says she obtained the list from "sources close to the Stevie Wonder camp," none of the artists have come forward to voice their support of the boycott.


The Huffington Post also says they reached out to reps of Jay, Rihanna and more. And their reps said they have no knowledge of the boycotts. Jay and JT will be performing at SunLife stadium this summer as planned.

Beyonce was joined by her mother, Tina Knowles, as they walked alongside over 2,000 protestors in Lower Manhattan.  And it’s clear that the Trayvon Martin verdict has touched the hearts of the entire Knowles family.  A few day agoSolange Knowles participated in a rally at Borough Hall in Brooklyn.

The couple posed with Trayvon’s mother, Sybrina Fulton and Rev. Al Sharpton and landed on the cover of the NY Daily News.

 photo marti1.jpg

Rev. Sharpton remarked about the couple’s appearance at the rally saying,

"Jay-Z and Beyonce said they didn’t want to speak and they didn’t come for a photo op. Jay-Z told me, ‘I’m a father. Beyoncé is a mother.’ We all feel the pain and apprehension – the laws must protect everybody, or it doesn’t protect anybody … We do not come from hate, we come from love of children."

The ‘Justice for Trayvon Martin’ protest began with a press conference at Rev. Sharpton’s NAN offices where Sybrina told the crowd;

“George Zimmerman started the fight and George Zimmerman ended the fight.  My son died without even knowing who his killer was … Today it was my son. Tomorrow it might be yours.”

As for how she felt about the verdict, Sybrina said, “We have moved on from the verdict. Of course, we’re hurting. Of course we’re shocked and disappointed. But that just means we have to roll up our sleeves and fight.”


The NYC protest was one of several that took place around the nation.  In Chicago…..

 photo marti8.jpg     

Rapper MC Lyte (who posed with Rev. Jesse Jackson) spoke to over 500 people rallied across from the Everett McKinley Dirksen federal courthouse. She shared, "When the verdict was read, I felt like we lost Trayvon Martin all over again.

And in San Diego,

 photo r-JAMIE-FOXX-large570.jpg


Jamie Foxx and Samuel L. Jackson addressed the racially charged case at Comic-Con in San Diego.  Though he was there to promote his role as the villain Electro in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2," Jaime also offered support to Trayvon’s mom, Sybrina.

“She’s always been courageous in saying this has never been about race. She said it’s about 17-year-old kids. We have to protect our kids. So I stand with her forever."

He also commented on gun violence in America saying,

“When you look at Sandy Hook and Aurora and all these different things where we’re losing our children. Chicago — 67 kids, people killed in a week — we have an epidemic. And it’s up to us as the grown folks to be smart enough and intelligent and nice to each other to have a difference of opinion, but also understand that we have to come to a solution.”

And when Samuel Jackson was asked about the rallies being held in Trayvon’s honor in dozens of US cities, he said, he was "encouraged by the attitude of people after the verdict, that people are willing to stand up and take a stand and get out in the streets, and let their voices be heard.”
