How many of you Samsung Galaxy users got in on one of the million copies of Jay Z‘s new album Magna Carta Holy Grail? *raises hand* It’s a great album but the official date of release is July 9th for the rest of you guys. However, last night Jay and wife Bey celebrated at a Brooklyn warehouse with Samsung Galaxy. And Twitter user @seoulcialite posted this great photo from the party on Instagram.

I’m sure it was a great time! Early buzz surrounding the album is nothing but greatness. What about you? Do you like what you’ve heard? And if you haven’t gotten it yet, will you be coping it?
Ever since Beyoncé let go of her father Mathew Knowles as her manager, the word on the street has always been that their relationship has been rough. You don’t even see pictures of her hanging out with him anymore. Add the divorce of Mathew from Tina Knowles and it seems pretty clear to me that the relationship between father and daughter is different. However, Mathew is fed up and is taking action against those who claim that that is the case. In a statement issued to E! News, Mathew insists that the relationship with Beyoncé is fine and London’s Sun magazine is to blame for saying otherwise.
“My daughters and my family mean the world to me,” he said. “The barrage of repeated falsehoods spawned by the British Sun‘s defamatory article has been exhausting and personally damaging to me. No matter how many papers it sells or web hits it generates, The Sun, like any newspaper, needs to maintain a basic level of journalistic integrity.
Even as one of the most powerful and successful singers in the world today, Beyoncé still has moments where she’s left feeling vunerable. And I’m certain that’s what she’s feeling right now. According to UK’s The Sun, Beyoncé is having security beefed up for a performance in London, after receiving threatening letters from a stalker named Bassey Essien.
Essien has already been warned to stay away from Beyoncé, 31 — who won an anti-harassment order in the High Court in 2011, prohibiting him from pestering her.
Court papers revealed Essien, of South West London, had been sending threatening letters to the star since 2009 and made a bizarre claim she was an imposter who had killed the real Beyoncé.
You know, I find it kind of funny that people are ready to speculate on Beyoncé being pregnant with another child, when she was up and performing on stage at 3 months and folks didn’t catch on. But I guess everyone has been EXTRA speculative this time around. E! Online says they have confirmation from a number of sources that Beyoncé is indeed pregnant.
I take it all with a grain of salt. Yes, the dress she wore to the MET Gala DID cleverly conceal her body…but the costumes on her tour are pretty much all tight fitting and I haven’t seen a little baby bump or anything, except maybe here. And quite frankly, I’ll wait until the expecting parents themselves confirm before I get caught up. But who knows??? Maybe Blue Ivy‘s sibling will be revealed 9 months from now…
I have to admit. Beyoncé and her marketing team are so freaking smart, it’s ridiculous. First she gave us the Pepsi commercial and featured a new song called Grown Woman. Now, she’s done the same thing with H&M. Teasing us with pics for their print campaign, this new H&M commercial features additional looks from the swimsuit collection and a brand new Beyoncé song called Standing In The Sun.
It’s like we’re getting snippets of her new album, complete with commercials that are more like music videos, before it’s even been printed. Brilliant. Oh, and I really like Beyoncé with the dark hair. I hope she rocks it more often. Check out the
music video commercial below:
