How Does Blue Ivy Carter Already Know Mama Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” Dance!?

Blue Ivy has learned Beyonce's "Single Ladies" dance

We’ve know that dancing is in baby Blue Ivy’s genes, but this is getting a little nuts. According to Beyonce, her little 1-year-old bundle has already learned her signature “Single Ladies” dance moves (or at least the infant equivalent)! But she didn’t learn it from her superstar mother like you might expect.

Beyonce And Jay-Z’s PDA Wins The Super Bowl

Beyonce tweets behind-the-scenes Super Bowl photos

If you’re reading this blog, chances are pretty high that you viewed the whole Ravens and 49ers tussle as the opening act to a far greater power: Beyonce. Her half time performance was without a doubt the most anticipated event of the night for us (even more than that Bar Refaeli ad), and Queen Bey did not disappoint! The diva left us all spell bound with a collection of her modern classics like (our fave) ”Crazy in Love,” and even got some help from her Destiny’s Child sisters Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams on “Single Ladies.”

Needless to say, everyone was blown away by her incredible showmanship. But one person on particular was particularly proud…He husband Jay-Z, of course! Hova went backstage after the performance to congratulate his lady in person, and the result was thankfully captured in the cutest Instagram known to human kind. “Lights out!!! Any questions??” the proud husband tweeted soon after, proving that we weren’t the only ones who thought that the half-hour power outage in the 3rd quarter was a direct result of Bey blowin’ some fuses!

Beyonce herself took to both Twitter and Tumblr to share some hot/adorable behind the scenes images from her time at the Superdome. In addition to the pics, she also spread some love with a self-penned thank you note to all ladies who shared the stage with her during Super Bowl Sunday. “What a proud day for African American Women!!!!” she began. How is it possible for even her handwriting to be sexy!? “Kelly, Michelle, Alicia, Jhud- You are all beautiful, talented and showed so much class! It was an honor to perform at the Super Bowl with you phenomenal ladies.”

Did Miley Cyrus And Liam Hemsworth Have A Secret Wedding, Just Like These 20 Celebrity Couples?

20 Celebrities Who Were Married In Secret

Earlier this week, we told you about how Miley Cyrus referred to her boyfriend/fiance/superstud Liam Hemsworth as her “hubby” in an interview with Cosmopolitan. The quote sparked an untold number of rumors suggestion that the power-couple have already tied the knot without us catching on. Well, it turns out we missed a crucial part of the interview: She actually straight up said she was married, y’all! “I’m happy I don’t have to date anyone,” she said within the pages. And later on while telling an anecdote she dropped another glaring hint nugget: “‘I’m so happy I’m married, because you guys are so cruel!’”

OK, so she might have just taken a conversational short cut, and what she meant to say was “I’m so happy that I’m about to get married in the very near future.” But that’s kind of a mouthful, no? A rep for Hemsworth strenuously denied the wedding bell buzz to People, saying that they are ”definitely NOT married.”

But hey, reps deny stuff all the time. And it doesn’t explain those Twitpics from Christmas that showed Miley and Liam wearing matching rings. And it really doesn’t explain why those same photos mysteriously vanished soon after being posted! Did Miley and Liam get married in secret? It wouldn’t be the first time in Hollywood history. Head on down to the gallery below and see 20 other famous couples who got hitched on the super DL!

If These Blue Ivy Carter Birthday Party Rumors Are True, This Girl’s Gonna Be SUPER Popular

Beyonce and Jay-Z reportedly dropped a lot of money on Blue Ivy's first birthday

Take this rumor with about a million grains of salt, since it comes from The Sun: Supposedly Jay-Z and Beyonce dropped obscene amounts of cash on Blue Ivy Carter’s birthday — amounts that make even B.I.C. worshippers like us raise our eyebrows. Among the expenses: an $80,000 diamond encrusted Barbie doll (that sounds like a choking hazard!); $96,000 on party decorations and a $2,500 cake.

The part of this story that really grabs our attention, though, is how much the supercouple reportedly spent on the guests at the party. Around $32,000 went to “jewelry sets, princess costumes and playhouses” for Blue’s young friends (er, do 1-year-olds actually have friends yet? And the parents of these friends got gift bags that included concert tickets and personalized gold pens. That sounds rather risky to us: Now every parent in the city is going to be strategically walking their strollers around Tribeca, figuring out where Blue is going to go to preschool and where she has her play dates, in the hopes that their children can one day strike up this very profitable friendship.

Well, now we understand even more why Bey’s Tumblr photos of her daughter don’t show her face. Not that you can expect her anonymity to last. (Hi, Paris Jackson!) In the meantime, if the back of your baby’s head looks remotely like Blue’s and you walk around Tribeca, expect to find yourself very popular all of a sudden.

How Will Blue Ivy Carter Celebrate Her Birthday? Let’s Take A Peek

NickMom plans Blue Ivy Carter's birthday party

Our friends at NickMom know a thing or two about throwing kids’ birthday parties — and not in an annoying Martha Stewart-y kind of way — so we think this depiction of what’s probably going down at Blue Ivy Carter’s first birthday party has to be on the money. Check out the rest of it here.

Happy 1st Birthday, Blue Ivy Carter! Which Super-Couple Spawn’s Path Will She Follow?

One year ago today, Beyonce’s baby bubble burst, bestowing the beautiful Blue Ivy Carter onto a breathless world (sorry we ran out of B’s at the end)! Jay-Z and Queen Bey’s little girl went on to dominate 2012, despite the fact that she wasn’t doing much more than eating mashed carrots and figuring out how to lift her head.

Clearly she got her dominating skills from her parents, and probably her Godmother Oprah Winfrey. Not that we’re judging, but we’ve been wondering what kind if path this mega-star offspring will take when she grows up and can actually…you know, do stuff. We’ve done our homework, and we’ve broken it down into the 5 basic Super-Couple Spawn varieties. Let us explain.

Super-Couple Spawn Variety 1: Parent Version 2.0

Like mother like daughter/like father like son, these famous folks get a leg-up with their name and try to stage a repeat performance of their parents’ success. Fame is a family business after all, but sometimes lightening doesn’t strike twice and the results are pretty mediocre. Examples of that include: Nancy Sinatra, Colin Hanks, Lisa Marie Presley, and Julian Lennon. But sometimes they do a pretty awesome job. Just like Goldie Hawn’s daughter Kate Hudson, the multi-talented Smith kids Jayden and Willow, Donald Sutherland’s badass boy Kiefer, Kirk Douglas‘ slightly less bad-ass boy Michael, and Judy Garland’s triple-threat daughter Liza Minelli.

Rumors We Hate: Did Rita Ora Have An Affair With Mentor Jay-Z?

Rita Ora denies she had affair with Jay-Z

Folks are really trying to make that “Rita Whora” nickname stick! The dust has barely settled from Rob Kardashian’s Twitter tirade against ex-girlfriend Rita Ora and now the singer is facing more unkind accusations. British reality show star Holly Hagan of Geordie Shore is making claims that Rita had an affair with her Roc Nation mentor Jay-Z. “I’ve been told to say that Rita ora has been ALLEGEDLY bukin jay z! I repeat ALLEDGELY [sic],” she wrote to her Twitter on Wednesday. “Apparently beyonce is denying claims… But if I gt cheated on I’d also deny it #embarrassin.”

The posts have (naturally) since been deleted, but it hasn’t stopped the white-hot fallout from Ora herself.  “I stayed silent on one bulls–t rumour but this one I have to speak,” she responded in followup tweets that also have since been deleted. “Neva eva will any1 includin a red head dum z listin attention seekin whore try talk s–t about me& my family holly wateva da f-k ur name is.” It took us a minute to decode all that, but we gather that she seems pretty pissed.

Gwyneth Paltrow Spends New Year Busting A Move On Stage With Jay-Z And Chris Martin

We know that Gwyneth Paltrow likes herself some gangster rap and hip-hop. You’ve seen her freestyle with Cameron Diaz and you’ve seen her bust out Gangsta Gangsta on The Graham Norton Show. You also know she’s BFF with Jay-Z. And her husband is Chris Martin who is pretty much all of Coldplay. So none of what is to follow should come as a surprise and yet it does. Perhaps it’s envy? Perhaps it’s actually seeing Gwyneth who is sp perfectly manicured all the time, dance? Coldplay and Jay co-headlined a massive New Years Eve show at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and Martin joined Hov for Run This Town. It’s all in the video you see above, and you’ll even see Gwynny and Chris’ two kids, Apple and Moses, provide back-up support for their Uncle Jay. And if you look to the right, you’ll see Gwyneth bobbing up and down, shaking her (non-existent) booty, blond ponytail high in the air, swigging champagne and livin’ the life. And then you’ll see hubby Chris jumping around stage — loosely defined as “dancing” — and you’ll be thinking … when will Hov’s swagger rub off on them? Possibly never, but that’s okay. We like bad but enthusiastic dancers!

Beyonce, Jay-Z Make It A Blue Ivy Carter Christmas For All

Beyonce and Jay-Z went Christmas shopping without Blue Ivy but posted new pics of her

As with most baby pics, there’s not much we can add to the latest photo of Blue Ivy Carter that Beyonce posted on her Tumblr this week. We’ll just say, “Thank you” to the proud mama, for sharing more cuteness — even if she never shows us little Blue’s face, and even though she and Jay-Z went to Bergdorf’s on Christmas Eve and forgot to buy us anything.

Anyway, we thought we’d take this opportunity to remind you once more why Blue is our #7 Celebrity Who Dominated in 2012 with this gallery of the few times we’ve caught a glimpse of the little star:

Just By Being Born Blue Ivy Carter Reaches #7 On Our Celebs Who Dominated 2012 List

Was there ever a more highly anticipated baby than the offspring of Beyonce and Jay-Z? Well, maybe. But it sure was fun following the story of Miss Blue Ivy Carter, from Mama Bey’s mimed announcement at the 2011 VMAs to all the rumors that she’d be giving birth on New Year’s Eve, to the stories of the lavish gifts the pop/hip-hop/fashion-diva-to-be received from the likes of Oprah and Kelly Rowland. We’ve yet to see much more of the precious one other than the back of her head, and yet we already love every inch of it.

Dominating Moment: Perhaps it was being born? Lil Blue was born on January 7th at New York City’s Lenox Hill Hospital. Did she have her own private wing? Of course she did. She soon charted on Billboard, featured in her dad’s ode “Glory.” Now ask  yourself what you’ve done lately.

Dominating on Twitter: Baby Blue can’t quite tweet yet, although many a Trending Topic has been assigned to her name. There are, however, quite a few parody Blue Ivys, and perhaps Blue is a Twitter late starter like her mom, whose account just tweeted for the first time in April, with already over 5 million followers.

Best Appearances: No word on what Blue’s first word was (or might be?) but as soon as she’s ready to give comment to Us Weekly, I bet we’ll be seeing cover story placement. Meanwhile, Blue’s been seen out on the town with her mom, dad and Auntie Solange.

What We Expect From Her in 2013: Blue Ivy turns 1 in January, and you bet it’ll be the best first birthday anyone’s ever seen.

The 12 Celebs Who Dominated In 2012:
12. Ryan Lochte
11. Rebel Wilson
10. Frank Ocean
9. Damian Lewis
8. Lena Dunham
7. Blue Ivy Carter
6. Matthew McConaughey
5. Channing Tatum
4. Honey Boo Boo
