According to Radar Online, Beyonce has responded to reports that she and husband Jay-Z are about to make Blue Ivy a big sister! Last night she took to her Instagram to let it be known exactly how she felt.
Radar Online is reporting that the IG pic has since been removed.
This is what came as a result of the world erupting with commentary yesterday after E! News began reporting definitively that Bey was pregnant, and after her friend, Russell Simmons tweeted a congratulations to the Beyonce and Jay-Z. Well, whether it was true or not, everyone wanted to be the very first to break the story, and we guess what happened in the end was, that people hurt the very person they wanted to be happy for. Not good.
Blue Ivy is going to be a big sister sometime next year. Reportedly, Beyoncé is pregnant with her second child by husband Jay-Z. E! reports that multiple source have confirmed that the “Put A Ring On It” singer is expecting. Speculation on whether or not Beyoncé had another bun in the oven started running rampant when she showed up to the Met Gala in a Givenchy gown whose design concealed his midsection. The chatter increased exponentially when she postponed a show in Antwerp, part of her Mrs. Carter World Tour, due to exhaustion and dehydration. She did apologize to fans for having to postpone the show, then during the next night’s performance revealed that she was doing so against her doctor’s orders. Neither Beyoncé nor Jay-Z’s representatives have confirmed if they are really expecting. Having a new baby will certainly make promotion of her forthcoming new album very interesting. Nevertheless, congrats to Beyoncé and Jay-Z!
Kendrick Lamar felt a sense of accomplishment when he got Jay-Z‘s verse for the remix to his hit single “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe.” ”It was one of them feelings where, you know, you finally reached that moment to where you’re actually respected,” the Compton rapper says inan interview with Get Schooled. “Jay-Z don’t have to [be on] nobody’s track, so for him to actually hop on a record of mine just shows the level of respect he has for me as an artist. And as a true artist, that’s what you want. You have all the money in the world and the awards, and accolades and stuff, you always want that respect. For him to do that, it’s just one of them things. I felt like, ‘OK, I finally accomplished what I sought out to do the moment I turned 13, and that’s be respected by people I respect.”
Hockey star Seth Jones could become the next athlete to join Jay-Z‘s fledgling Roc Nation Sports management company. According to Kirsten Fleming of The Post, Roc Nation is working to land a deal to handle Seth’s marketing and branding. Jones would have the benefit of both sides of the CAA (business) and Roc Nation partnership (marketing.} “When Seth comes to the NHL draft [in Newark, NJ] in June, his family, agents at CAA and Roc Nation are going to have a powwow to see if he’ll sign with them,” a source said. Jones is expected to be the first African American taken at the number one spot of this year’s NHL draft.
The two rap heavyweights, who collaborated on the 2011 ‘Watch The Throne’ album, haven’t seen each other in months so it’s no surprise that they couldn’t keep the smiles off their faces as they greeted each other with a huge manly embrace. Despite the large group of photographers surrounding them, the pals happily carried on with their conversation in the streets of Soho before Kanye headed off to enjoy a shopping trip with Kim.
Nobody can question Kanye West‘s acumen as a producer. Yeezy has crafted smash hits for Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Freeway, Nas, Lil Wayne and G.O.O.D. Music signee John Legend. Speaking of Legend, the smooth R&B crooner stopped by Power 105‘s The Breakfast Club morning program and chatted up the crew about working with Sade and other news. The big bombshell he dropped, however, was revealing that Kanye West has stopped banging out the beats and instead enlists others to do his some of his heavy lifting. To be fair, Legend didn’t dump on Yeezy as if he’s not involved in the music making process. The singer clarified his statements; he was careful to mention that West is still very much a producer and stating they remain close creative collaborators.
“He doesn’t really make beats anymore,” shared Legend. “But he suggests beats to write to. He has all these young producers coming through and he just curates it and just helps put the album together. He helps write songs, he curates the beat selection, all that, song selection and helps with the videos.” Legend was clear in restating the West is still hands on, after a flabbergasted Charlamagne balked at the news. Legend even added that West will still “tweak” the beats himself but he’s not involved in all stages of the track as once before. “We think of production as making beats, but production is the vision and Kanye is a producer in a classic sense, that’s how Quincy Jones was,” added Legend. John Legend‘s upcoming album Love In The Future is slated to drop June 25
