Here’s a really sweet story in which the dirtbag turns out to be repressive heteronormative social mores. In a new clip released from his forthcoming interview with David Letterman on Netflix series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, Jay-Z recalled how he cried tears of joy after his mom, Gloria Carter, came out to…
The Carters are on the run again, as the prophecy foretold.
Jay-Z and Beyoncé hosted a huge bash for Mary J. Blige after the 2018 Oscars, and apparently, my invitation was lost in the mail ... or maybe it was the huge snowstorm that hit the East Coast this weekend that caused the delay. It was a balmy 69 degrees where I live, but there must be a reason I didn’t get an invite.…
A song called “Top Off,” featuring Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Future and DJ Khaled, dropped at 6 a.m. Along with encouraging Maybach owners to take the tops off of their cars, I think the only reason this song even exists is that Future probably felt really, really, really sad about that Jay-Z line from “Kill Jay-Z” (“In the…
President Donald Trump didn’t have much to say to rapper Eminem,
who has been excoriating him on wax (wait—do people even say “wax” anymore?) who has been ethering him in the cloud for a minute, but, again, Trump hasn’t responded.
During the Q&A section of a special Wag the Dog screening at the 92nd St. Y Monday night, John Oliver surprised guest Dustin Hoffman—and the audience—by bringing up the harassment allegations made against him this year by Anna Graham Hunter.
The rumor that Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z were recording an album together, dates back a few years—when Billboard asked Detail about it in February 2015, it had already been swirling for months. Detail told the magazine, “When you think of Jay and Bey together, you think ‘album,’” and said he’d work to make it come…
You might remember last year when Adele, crying and cradling her Grammy for Album of the Year at the end of the night, tearfully told audiences that Beyoncé actually deserved the award.
If your idea of good Sunday escapism is living vicariously through the extravagant wealth of others, then please, turn your attention to these photos of Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s newly purchased $26 million home in East Hampton.
“I’m not fearful. I believe that we are resilient, especially us as black people and especially the culture—we’ve been through so much more than this guy.”
In an interview with Rap Radar, Jay-Z addressed the elevator fight heard ‘round the world for the first time since it occurred—which was way back in 2014. And before you start salivating over the potential for tea, allow me to tell you he didn’t spill a damn thing. Or, at least not anything I was thirsty for.
First I saw Issa Rae’s Instagram post. She wrote, “Two things I NEVER thought I’d be able to say: 1) I’m playing Rachel in ‘Friends.’ 2) I’m in a Jay-Z video with some of the funniest/dopest black people ever.” Just look at this glorious post:
Let’s start with the prognosis: the photographer Justin Bieber hit with his car “suffered non life-threatening injuries to his lower body.” So he’ll be fine. Now that that’s out of the way, the headline bears repeating: Justin Bieber ran over a photographer after church, but it was an accident.
After a few weeks of speculation, Beyonce Knowles-Carter herself finally confirmed several thing in an Instagram post uploaded early Friday morning: the existence of her babies, the names of her babies, and the ages of her babies. The mother of three apparently chose today as the day she would reveal her very rich and…
Following the release of 4:44, Jay-Z continues to share intimate details of the marital turbulence he and Beyoncé have weathered. In a video titled “Footnotes for 4:44,” he, along with many other men of color, discuss toxic masculinity and its reverberations.
Well folks, this is it. I now find it difficult to even remember the origins of Shade Court, though I do clearly remember, like many things in my life, it was born out of my frustration. Frustration at watching publication after publication misuse this wonderful, beautiful word and all the rudeness and arrogance it…
Compelling social observation suggests that Taylor Swift didn’t throw her famous Independence Day party seeing as her bestie, Karlie Kloss, was hanging out with Kendall Jenner over the holiday. Some, like Buzzfeed, have interpreted this renewed alliance as shade. Why?
