Congrats, you made it through Monday. Wind down with Last Lap: The New York Post is convinced that Jay Z and Beyoncé are headed for a divorce, La Roux says f-ck Kanye West, Jonah Hill officiated Adam Levine‘s wedding and more.
As you may have heard, Robin Thicke recently released a new album, Paula. In an effort to win back his wife, hottie actress Paula Patton (the couple separated in February due to his cheating shenanigans), the R&B singer threw together this album of baby-come-back-to-me ballads — but it’s been greeted by crickets. The album has bombed completely, selling only 25,000 copies so far. And it gets even worse in the UK, where it sold only 530 copies! Perspective? An album has to sell at least 500,000 copies to be certified by the Record Company Industry of America. Not really the ex-wife panty-dropper the crooner was expecting, was it?
There comes a time in a person’s life when he or she gets to witness Queen Bey in concert. Once you earn that privilege, you must be prepared in every way possible. If you’re going to see Beyoncé (and Jay Z) this weekend when the On The Run tour hits Metlife Stadium, you better get your mind right. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. Alert the Beyhive and take notes because we have all you need to know when preparing for a Beyoncé concert.
Beyonce and Jay Z‘s On The Run tour has officially kicked off and we’re spending our days gorging on morsels from social media — we can’t get enough of the videos and photos everyone is posting from the power couple’s tour. The famously cagey couple has even been showing wedding footage, kept so tightly under wraps until now, to audiences. That inspired us to do some digging, and try to find out as much as we can about the most private public couple in history!
The family that tours together, stays together? Despite being the subjects of tabloid rumors spawning from a late-night elevator ride that will live in infamy, Jay Z and Beyoncé presented a united front during the opening night of their On The Run stadium tour. The couple tore through 43 songs at Sun Life Stadium in Miami on Wednesday and showed off adorable, never before seen moments from their wedding day. And Baby Blue was there, too!
Over the past decade, hip-hop record labels have been churning out radio hits, platinum selling albums, and major star power. Some of these already-famous megastars have gotten in on the industry game, founding record imprints of their own! Despite the derisive-sounding tag of “vanity label,” these artist-founded subsidiaries offer up some of the biggest smashes and most important rap releases of recent times.
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.
