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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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 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 fewparody 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 holidays are a time to celebrate goodwill for all human kind. And that’s cool and all, but that stuff gets sort of old after a while. So now let’s take a minute and take a look at all famous folks who didn’t get the peace and harmony memo! We’ve assembled our list of the top 20 most brutal celebrity beat-downs of 2012. Join us in a chant of “Fight fight fight!” and check it out!
Rob Kardashian didn’t handle his heartbreak all that great following his split with Rita Ora. Instead of posting passive aggressive Facebook statuses like the rest of us, he went on an all-out Twitter assault against his former flame, claiming that she cheated on him with 20 dudes, and coining the obvious pun, “Rita Whora,” which became a trending topic soon after. #Revenge? #SmallVictories
Oooh, we know why Jay-Z’s giving us that look right now. Because we dared think the blasphemous thought that at the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year Awards last night, Beyonce was not the best-dressed lady in the house. We get that B’s oversized red suit — worn without a blouse and no doubt a lot of double-stick tape — was on trend, but it also kind of reminded us of something our moms used to wear to business meetings. Meanwhile, Savannah Brinson, whose fiance LeBron James was receiving the titular award, was slamming in a purple Emilio Pucci dress that emphasized all of her assets. Here’s another look at them (and another glare from Hov): Read more…
Thanksgiving is a day to spend time with the people you’re thankful for and eat until your heart’s content. Over the holiday weekend BeyonceandJay-Z (people we’re very thankful for) showed us an intimate side of their lives by sharing photos of their Thanksgiving dinner and even a few of baby Blue Ivy. The superstar ‘rents have made sure to keep their daughter out of the spotlight, and instead of all those impersonal paparazzi shots they rather share their own images in their own intimate way via Tumblr. We can basically feel the warmth radiating from these photos and can’t get over Blue’s adorable full head of hair. Beyonce also wished us all a “Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving” from her family in a Tumblr note.
Let’s all collectively give a sigh of “Aww” and hope to be just like them one day as we lovingly look at these adorable photos of the royal family.
If you felt the Earth shake over the weekend, that was probably just the epic rumble between two Jay-Z and Robert De Niro! Two of New York’s biggest ever stars got into a beef at Leonardo DiCaprio’s Manhattan birthday bash over the weekend, and sources say it wasn’t pretty. Amazingly, it was over something as mundane and not A-listy as un-returned phone calls. Celebs: they really are just like us!
Apparently De Niro asked the rapper to record a song for the Tribeca Film Festival a few months back, but Jay never answered the phone when he called with more details. So when Hova went over to Robert’s table to say hello, the acting legend went all Raging Bull on his ass and dressed him down in a room full of famous faces (including Martin Scorsese!). “Bob wasn’t in any mood to make polite conversation,” a witness told theNew York Post. “He told Jay that if somebody calls you six times, you call them back. It doesn’t matter who you are, that is just rude.”
