Thanks to TMZ we have a small glimpse of the little Usher. From the picture he looks awfully cute, but I’m biased I think all babies are cute. I wish we can see more of him, I hope this will encourage them to do a photo spread of the whole family, step children and all. For those of you who like to get straight to the chase fast forward to 0:52 to view the baby.
0:52 – To see the baby
This day will forever be engraved in my memory. Today is my sons first birthday, the anniversary of Martin Luther King’s assassination, and now the union of Beyonce and Jay-Z in holy matrimony. They are literally preparing for a their nuptials as I type. Can this be the moment that has been predicted over and over for more than five years? TMZ has a live timeline:
UPDATE: People magazine source says the two are married, and the lavish event was an after party. [Excerpt] Though there is no official confirmation, the friend says, “It happened earlier this evening. Jay wanted it to be a really private affair – close friends and family.”
UPDATE 6:21 PM ET: Now we’re told Jay-Z’s mom arrived with Beyonce’s mother in the same ride. Interesting.
UPDATE: 6:23 PM ET: Jay-Z’s Maybach (insanely expensive) is en route. It left from Jigga’s other apartment in Midtown. Don’t know who’s in it.
UPDATE: 6:27 PM ET: There’s a buzz they already got married (you think so?) and that what you’re looking at is the site of the reception. Just passing it along, folks.
UPDATE 6:48 PM ET: We’ve just got these snaps looking onto Jay-Z’s roof. Check out all the garbage! And who are those guys, caterers, the band, groomsmen?
UPDATE 6:57 PM ET: TMZ just shot Jay-Z’s mother Gloria Carter at the Bloomberg building (where we just saw Matthew Knowles) wearing a formal white dress. We got Beyonce’s sister Solange there too– also wearing white!
UPDATE 7:39 PM ET: Kelly Rowland has just arrived — wearing a white dress!
UPDATE 7:48 PM ET: OMG. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin just arrived!
UPDATE 7:58 PM ET: Matthew Knowles — B’s dad — just drove in, wearing a silver jacket.
UPDATE 8:03 PM ET: Beyonce’s baby sis Solange just showed up.

According to People magazine, Beyonce and Jay-Z, I mean Sean Carter, obtained a marriage license from Syracuse, NY. According to a witness, “They were very polite and smiling as they filled out the paperwork. They were holding hands for a while. They looked really happy.” I will believe it when I see the wedding. I wouldn’t be surprise if this was a publicity stunt, I thought they would be a bit less conspicuous than this. They are probably just testing the waters to see how fast the the news will hit the stands. Do you think it’s real?
This is wrong, and as I write it, I know it’s wrong. We shouldn’t encourage the breakdown of black families, but I have to report this story because it’s to juicy to ignore, and inquiring minds want to know. Tameka caught an attitude when she found out the love interest in Usher’s video, hand picked by Usher, was none other than the singer Keri Hilson (pictured below). According to Page Six:
Foster was “domineering” and displayed her trademark “Tameka wrath” during a video shoot for Usher’s new song, “Love in the Club,” the weekend of March 15 in LA.
Our on-set source said Foster was upset when she found out stunning singer/songwriter Keri Hilson was personally picked by Usher to play his love interest in the video.
“It was supposed to be a sexy video shoot,” our spy said. “And Tameka was there the entire time guarding like a watchdog. It was ridiculous – she knows Keri and knows she’s no video ho or Karrine Steffans.” Steffans, nicknamed “Superhead,” wrote the book, “Video Vixen,” about her alleged flings with Usher and several other artists.
“Tameka is very insecure,” our source said. “Even in rehearsals she was weird and clearly not happy that Keri is so gorgeous. Tameka threw a lot of attitude. The day of the shoot, Tameka dressed Keri very badly – she looked like an extra. Tameka wouldn’t let Keri have her hairdresser there – she had to use the hairdresser who was doing the extras.”
Foster also took a dislike to Usher’s longtime choreographer, Jamaica, and banned her from the set. When Usher and Foster were spotted at the Beverly Hills Hotel last week, “They barely said one word to each other,” we’re told.
But of course there is three sides to every story, his side, their side, and the truth. According to Usher and his reps, “Keri could not have been happier with Tameka’s choices in the styling, hair and makeup . . . Jamaica was flown out and arrived a day late to do Keri’s choreography, and was on-set at all times. The shoot itself went brilliantly.”
Look at the happy newlywed couple getting their mean mug on. Can we get a smile or a smirk; shopping is suppose to be fun, they look more like Bonnie & Clyde leaving a heist. On a serious note, I wonder are we going to get pictures of the baby. I’m glad he decided to spend some time at home, but I’m ready for him to make a comeback.
Congrats are in order to Halle Berry and boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, they are the proud parents of a 7lb-4oz baby girl. If she looks anything like her mother or her father then she is going to be one beautiful child. I know that’s not always the case, I have seen some really beautiful celebrities make some interesting children. However, Halle Berry is a glower with a beautiful heart so I’m sure her daughter will be beautiful on multiple levels. You know as soon as pictures are available I will post them. Lastly, this new edition’s name has yet to be released, but I will post an update once it’s released.
UPDATE: Thanks Lakesha for sendig it in, Haller Berry has named the new edition, Nahla Ariela Aubrey.
