Earlier in the month there were a bevy of outlets reporting  underwhelming ticket sales for the dream duo’s ‘On The Run’ tour but those reports have since been squashed. In fact, the superstar couple’s joint trek will likely be the second highest grossing tour per show in history.

According to the money minds at ForbesBeyonce and Jay-Z’s tour will sell nearly 1 million tickets when all is said and done with a net gross of somewhere around $100 million. To break it down that’s over a 5 million dollar gross per show. With 20 shows scheduled that would put Jay and Bey second only to U2?s “360 Tour” ($736 million/110 shows).

The ‘On The Run Tour’ is set to kick off on June 25th at Miami’s Sun Life Stadium. Shows are also scheduled for 19 other stops including Atlanta,  New York, Los Angeles and 2 newly announced dates in France.

The West family refuse to do anything understated. There was ‘Keeping Up With The Jonses’, then ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ but now keeping up with the West’s is seemingly the peak of it all. This weekend, Kim and Kanye executed a mind-blowingly lavish affair to commemorate the first birthday of their daughter, North West.

Kanye wittingly titled the birthday bash ‘Kidchella’- a play on the music festival Coachella. The proud parents carried the theme throughout the event and encouraged partygoers to also indulge in the ‘kidchella’ affair. This was no normal first birthday party as attractions included a karaoke stage, a Ferris wheel and a bouncy house. Teepees were placed around the yard of aunt and uncle Kourtney and Scott for additional ambiance. Reportedly, all children at the party were given moccasins and leather fringe outfits, and also received Yeezus T-shirts. As the daughter of fashion royalty North was decked out for the festivities. She sported a fringe dress, a floral crown and massive diamond earrings.

Grandma Kris Jenner posted some pics  of the entire gang having a blast in Calabasas, California, on Instagram to celebrate North’s big day turning 1. Check a snap below:

Leave it to Kim to really go over the top. If the trend continues, North’s sweet 16 will off the chain…and insanely expensive.

“Like I told everyone, enough’s enough,” said the reality star. “I’ve been quiet [on the show]. I’ve been dormant for 4 years. If God allows us to have another season, it’ll be 5. But at some point you just have to say ‘This isn’t who I am’… I’m not this little puppet guy back here, I’m very opinionated. We can talk about politics, religion… it doesn’t matter. We can go there. I’m more than just a face.”

The historic cover shows the actress, 31, in a figure-hugging printed Prada dress  from the designer’s Fall 2014 RTW collection. Inside, the actress talks about her remarkable year and details how it has altered her life. It’s important to note, Lupita becomes only the second black woman to ever grace the cover of the magazine. The other was Ethiopian model Liya Kebede. Still, this isn’t Nyong’o’s first time nabbing the cover of a major publication. In April, she took the title of “Most Beautiful Woman in the World” and the cover of People.

Here’s to hoping such a poised and talented artist continues to flourish both personally and professionally. Go Lupita, go!
