Beyonce Slips Into A Pair Of Sexy Hawaiian Magic Eye Pants In NYC

We so often describe things as “crazy pants”; it’s only right this moment that we realize how few of those things are actually pants! Not that the festive floral bottoms Beyonce rocked in New York today were really nuts per say. In fact, they are probably exactly the type of thing that a hot new mom would wear…if she was on vacay in Honolulu…and wanted everyone to stare at her legs with their eyes unfocused until they saw a T. Rex. Or a schooner! Alternately we also like the idea that Bey is using her pants to transmit some kind of secret code to Katy Perry, letting her know all is forgiven now that the “Part of Me” singer explained her alleged insult about Bey’s song “Beautiful Liar.” Yup, looks like we are willing to take any explanation at this point because, dang, that is a bold print!

On the other hand, if Beyonce‘s pants are actually an ingenious strategy cooked up by her P.R. team and the Tourism Board of Hawaii to highlight all the baby weight she’s lost since bringing Blue Ivy into the world, it is working. Look at that tiny little belt! It looks like it’s hovering there in the slender abyss! On the flip size, if black is typically thought of as slimming, Beyonce must want her crotch to be invisible. And her canary yellow shoes all our eyes can see!

First An Iffy Kanye Cover, Now Beef With Beyonce? Pull It Together, Katy Perry!

As Katy Perry herself would put it, “This is about to get embarrassing.” While visiting BBC Radio 1 yesterday, Perry allegedly took a pot shot at Beyonce. Beyonce, of all divas! According to PopDust, the “Part of Me” singer busted out the insult when describing her rumored song with Rihanna. “We’ve collaborated on a lot of things, but just not songs yet,” Perry explained. “It’s one of those things that’s got so much build up that we have to deliver. I want it to be like that Eurythmics and Aretha Franklin song ‘Sisters Are Doin’ It for Themselves,’ not ‘Beautiful Liar.’” Yup, that’s a burn right there! In case you aren’t as dedicated a Shakira fan as we are, “Beautiful Liar” is the joint Beyonce dropped with the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer in 2007. Why Katy would bring up their duet as an example is a mystery to us. She practically had to blow dust off that song to even start this beef. Don’t eat that beef, Katy! That beef is far too old!

We’re sure Perry didn’t mean her comment to seem so snarky, but seeing as how her zinger comes less than a day after she broke it down with that highly questionable cover of Kanye and Jay-Z “N—-s in Paris,” we’re going to suggest girl take a day off and pull it together before she does something even more cringe-worthy. “…I definitely want to do something that is so iconic,” Perry concluded about her upcoming collabo with RiRi. “Rihanna’s kind of busy too. We’re both busy but we planted the seed two years ago. How disappointed would you be if that song came out and it’s no good? Sometimes you have to wait for greatness.” Yes, you do Katy Perry. Yes, you do. Unless your name is Beyonce, of course. Oh burn!  Let yet another beef…begin!

Beyonce Shows Off Slim Figure On Date Night With Jay, Mom And Sis

OK, well, we assume Jay-Z and Beyonce get out for more romantical-type evenings than last night’s outing, but any night out counts as a date night for new parents, right? Bey wore a flattering, body-hugging blue Victoria Beckham dress with matching blue nails and shoes (it’s cheesy, but we love that she’s got a Blue Ivy theme going here) to attend a fundraiser held by Michelle Obama and co-hosted by Robert De Niro at his Greenwich Hotel on Monday night. Whoopi Goldberg, Ben Stiller, Angela Bassett, Alfre Woodard, Harvey Weinstein and Georgina Chapman were the other big-name guests, per the New York Daily News along with Solange and Tina Knowles. Jay, Beyonce, Solange and Tina were later snapped leaving Tribeca sushi hotspot Nobu.

We can’t get over how skinny the new mamma looks already. Politics and Japanese cuisine sound like very manageable elements of a post-baby diet — much more than hiring a live-in trainer for twice-daily workouts.

Beyonce And Blue Ivy Enjoy The Early New York Spring

After that initial first glimpse of Blue Ivy Carter and a couple of walks two weeks ago, we haven’t seen much of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s firstborn. We already know that Bey is look lovely so soon after giving birth, and we mean all the time. But while we love us some glam Queen B, we were hankering to see some relaxed momma-daughter shots. Today is that day, folks. You may not be able to see Blue Ivy’s face, but that’s her up there secured to Beyonce. And she’s even got herself a blue pacifier (photo on the right), bless! This is what we like to see. These shots were taken in Tribeca, New York, just yesterday as the singer took her daughter out for a walk. Looking good, family Carter!

Beyonce And Jay-Z Vs. Jeremy Lin: New Yorkers Face An Important Dilemma

What a confusing night for New York basketball fans! While Knicks fans were anxious to see whether the miracle of Jeremy Lin was just a fluke and how he and Carmelo Anthony would work together, a certain New Jersey Nets co-owner and his wife took their seats courtside and watched their team win. Well, to those of us who are only marginally interested in sports, the appearance of Jay-Z and Beyonce at Madison Square Garden was nothing but a blissful occasion. The new parents looked comfortable and casual — with the exception of Beyonce’s Christian Louboutin-clad feet, which were fabulous and probably not so comfortable. Bey’s face was fresh and youthful, with barely a trace of makeup, highlighted by her simple, half-ponytail. And could those blue nails be her tribute to Blue Ivy, who was in the studio recording her first album at home with the babysitter while mom and dad slipped out for date night? Fashionbombdaily.com pointed out her Brooklyn Bridge ring, from nOIr, which is also pretty cool. Except for those of us who aren’t really so thrilled about that giant monstrosity of a new Nets stadium in our Brooklyn neighborhood … Let’s just look at the pretty shoes again, shall we?

Is Janet Jackson On Her Way To Becoming An X Factor Judge?

Now that Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger have gotten the boot from The X Factor, leaving Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid left to grumble behind the judges’ table, it seems that the show is desperately in need of a Nice Judge. Someone who will get misty-eyed when a 13-year-old belts out a Mariah song, even if that 13-year-old sounds like a rusty rake scraping against a chalkboard. Enter Janet Jackson! According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jackson is in preliminary talks to occupy one of the available slots. When asked by Anderson Cooper if she was already an X Factor judge in an interview set to air Monday, Janet demurred, “No, I am not. But that’s all I really think I should say.” Lord help those contestants if they’re nasty, is all we’re saying.

While the prospect of bringing Beyonce onto the show seems to be nothing but gossip so far, Simon did confirm rumors that the show was in touch with Whitney Houston prior to her passing. “We were ironically going to meet on Monday and of course, one of the names we were going to be talking about in that meeting as a possible mentor on the new series of X Factor was going to be Whitney Houston,” Cowell admitted to Piers Morgan. While Whitney would have been phenomenal on the show, Janet brings a lot of the same qualities to the table: they both seem kind, fair and, most importantly, talented enough for their opinion actually mean something. Simon, we’re looking at you here…

Former Destiny’s Child Members Gush About Blue Ivy, Beyonce’s Mamahood

At least two former Destiny’s Child members agree: no one expected Beyonce to be the first to have a kid. Not because she wouldn’t be an amazing mom (“She has always had this motherly spirit about her,” LeToya Luckett gushes) or because she’d have any problem finding a great dad (“God made Jay for her,” raves Michelle Williams), but because Beyonce has always been a career woman first and foremost.

“We just never knew that she would be the first to have a baby or the first to get married because we always knew she had a focus that was…not human when it comes to her work,” Williams explained at the Essence Black Women In Music event. Said Luckett of her former band mate, “She’s a planner! Literally, I think she planned her whole life out. ‘At 30, I’m going to have a baby!’ Then at 30, she had a baby. That’s just Bey.” Then Williams imitated Bey doing crunches and breast-feeding at the same time. “We’re gonna do crunches, Boo Boo! Come on!,” Michelle joked. Ugh, why did Destiny’s Child ever break up?

20 Adorable Couples Being Adorable To Get You In The Valentine’s Mood

Happy Valentine’s Day! Or not, depending on how you feel about the holiday. And listen, we know there are a lot of singletons out there who are not so pleased about how much we in the media focus on this holiday. But we can’t help it, OK? We cover divorces and breakdowns and deaths and fights all the time, and it’s really nice to have a day that’s all about the important things in life. (No, not the unveiling of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, though that’s nice too.) We just really want to escape from it all and look at Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez nuzzling each other. We would like to soak in the happiness that is Adam Lambert and Sauli Koskinen’s love, bask in Jay-Z and Beyonce’s adorable glory, shiver with delight at the perpetual hotness of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, and marvel at the lasting power of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. We are hoping some of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s world-saving affection will rub off on us. And we’re even going to allow for some admiration of Tom Brady and Gisele Bunchen, football loyalties aside.

But here’s some good news for you black-hearted V-day haters: The last time we did a best couples gallery, back in December, one of those couples announced their divorce a few days later. Oh, no! What have we done?!?

Check out the adorable babe in arms…after the jump!
