Though today is his birthday, Jay Z has already attended thousands of extravagant parties – and seemed to enjoy the naughty ones the best. Luckily for mankind, they all happened to be filmed in various music videos. Enjoy the 12 times we really wanted to party with Hova.
As some of you know, I am a Scandal & How To Get Away With Murder fan, so life is hard. So hard, in fact that every night when I lay myself down to sleep, I ask the Lord to spray some Miracle-Gro on my head because every week, Shonda Rhimes snatches my edges with her crazy plot twists and I end up looking like Naomi Campbell circa 2013, which is not cute when you don’t have Naomi Campbell money. Anyway, the point is that just as my edges were starting to recover, Grand Central Books announced that they are releasing an unauthorized biography of Beyoncé in fall 2015. The book will not feature any quotes from ‘Yonce, but will rely on secondary sources, which is code for “shady heauxes.” I am not a shady heaux, but I do have the inside scoop on Queen Bey! So without further ado, here are 10 not at all made up for comedic effect completely factual things that Beyoncé doesn’t want mentioned in her unauthorized biography.
Music has been engrained in our lives from good days to bad. Ever listened to Jay Z and Alicia Keys‘ “Empire State of Mind” while walking through New York City feeling unstoppable?

Throwback videos bring up the best and worst memories but more importantly, defining moments that have shaped the person you are today. Get a kick out of these throwback videos from years past. This is nostalgia at its finest.

We celebrated Beyonce’s33rd birthday yesterday, but today, all of us are getting a special gift. A behind-the-scenes look at Bey’s MTV Video Music Awards medley has hit the web, showing us just how marvelous the singer truly is.
Through the years, we’ve watched Beyoncétransform from the leading lady of Destiny’s Child to the multibillion marketing genius and powerhouse that saw her crowned as Queen Bey. We bow down to her now, as she proves time and time again to be flawless in more ways than one. She’s made appearances on the big screen, she’s a ridiculously talented live performer and she has so many awards we actually wonder where she fits them. On top of being an entertainment mogul, she’s a loyal wife and loving mom. Looking back at Bey’s career by the numbers proves that she is one of a kind to the point of not even being human. After all, even Beyoncé has just 24 hours in a day like the rest of us.
It’s been nine months since Beyoncé turned our worlds upside down by dropping her surprise self-titled album. And no, we’re still not over it. You’ve had these months to learn every line and perfect the “***Flawless” dance, but do you truly know the meanings of these songs? Look no further! On the occasion of the pop diva’s 33rd birthday, we’ve broken down her songs in the simplest way we know how. Welcome to the Cliff’s Notes version of Beyonce.
