After a week dominated by speculation around the Carter-Knowles family’s interpersonal drama, Beyoncé and Jay Z want the gossip to stop. The couple released an official statement on the footage obtained from the Standard Hotel elevator, concluding that Solange‘s behavior was not the result of drunkenness and all families have their issues. The claim that Bey, Jay, Solange et al. are “no different” from other families is up for debate.
Mariah Carey kicked off Today‘s Summer Concert Series on Rockefeller Plaza this morning. And in Grand Mariah Fashion, it was a spectacle, complete with elbow-length gloves and grand pianos. But wait, is it appropriate to channel ’50s lounge singers and drape yourself atop a baby grand before 10 AM? Who cares! Mimi makes her own rules.
Speculation has swirled around the Carter-Knowles family in the wake of surveillance video showing a physical altercation between Jay Z and his sister-in-law, Solange Knowles. Now, amid rumors and ridicule (just take a look at the gallery above), Jay, Solange, and Beyonce have released a statement to the Associated Press.
Drake and Rihanna have reportedly called it quits, yet again. Just as we were starting to believe they were building a solid foundation together, the music stars are parting ways, apparently because one of them is a bit too attached to the relationship.
Beyoncé has been in seven feature films to date. Did you remember that The Pink Panther, opposite Steve Martin, was one of them? At least tell me that you recall “Check On It,” a modern day classic featured on the film’s soundtrack? (And if you don’t agree, then who are you?)
Yesterday was a time for Michael Jackson fans to rejoice, as VH1 proudly presented an exclusive stream of his latest track, “Blue Gangsta.” The sneak is in anticipation of XSCAPE, a brand new album filled with the best unheard songs from the King of Pop. The record drops next Tuesday, but we’re having trouble waiting ’til then to rock with MJ. So today we’re are ecstatic to announce yet ANOTHER exclusive stream, this time of the title track! So what are you waiting for? Put on your moonwalking shoes and press play! But we’ve got a few more goodies for you, too…
