Mama Tina Knowles set to touch upon the R. Kelly scandal, and he or she was quickly dragged for a few of Beyonce’s husband’s past behavior with teen artists like knavish Brown... Tina was quickly reminded that there's quite a ten-year gap between Jay-Z and her girl. Jada Pinkett Smith recently did associate degree interview with one amongst R. Kelly’s accusers on associate degree episode of Red conversation. With her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, and her female offspring, Willow Smith, by her facet, Jada talked with Lisa Van Allen regarding Lifetime’s docu-series, extant R. Kelly. Lisa was seventeen once she met the R&B singer, and that they had a romantic relationship. Jada cried as Lisa confessed that the singer was “sickening” and was “a master manipulator.” Lisa stated: “I came go in 2008 and no-one detected Maine. In 2008 there weren’t any movements, no one else was talking regarding it. I came out hoping that I might facilitate the victims and therefore the woman on the tape as a result of I knew her family wasn’t visiting speak. therefore I felt like, someone must arise. They vulnerable my life. There was plenty i used to be managing. i used to be pregnant. You can’t let that stuff stop you. You can’t be afraid.” Jada responded by saying: “Man, however complicit we tend to all are. That actually skint my heart, to actually consider it. we tend to unheeded it. i believe that’s been terribly heartrending on behalf of me, simply however harsh the reactions are.” Beyonce’s mother wrote a message wherever she backed the accusers and inform out. While several applauded Tina and Jada, some referred to as them hypocrites. One follower replied: “Girl your sixteen yo female offspring met Jay once he was twenty eight. Bye!” Another commenter wrote: “The hypocrisy of it all. however will Jada say you're thinking that you’re fully grown at sixteen, however she let her son move out at 15?” This person shared: “She was a phony some years agone cycle per second investigated Jada and can as a result of Willow was pictured within the bed at fourteen age with a 21-year-old man. therefore don’t praise her.

(LISTEN TO AUDIO) BEYONCÉ AND JAY-Z JUST MADE EVERYONE GO ‘APE SHIT’ WITH A SURPRISE JOINT ALBUM

This is not a drill: Beyoncé and Jay-Z just dropped an entire joint album without any announcement or hype whatsoever. Because it's not like music's most powerful couple needs album promo anyway! Everything Is Love abruptly hit Tidal on Saturday afternoon (July 16) under the name The Carters. The collaborative album spans nine songs, clocks in at just over 38 minutes, and features both Bey and Jay on every track. One of those cuts, "APESHIT," already has a full-length music video that's also available on Tidal. The cinematic vid was shot on location at The Louvre in Paris, and was teased by Beyoncé on Instagram. A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on Jun 16, 2018 at 2:29pm PDT Rumors about a Bey and Jay collaborative album have long swirled, and they escalated in March when the couple announced their joint stadium trek, On The Run II. The tour kicked off earlier this month in the U.K. and begins its North American leg on July 25. Looks like fans are going to have a lot of new music to get them hyped before then. If you don't have a Tidal account — and somehow aren't succumbing to the pressure to subscribe — you can listen to 30-second previews of the new songs below. Happy listening!

OH NO! ‘4:44’ No More? Jay-Z May Be Forced To Cancel Upcoming Global Tour

And the federal government may be to blame. Jay-Z‘s upcoming global concert tour is in real danger of being derailed. And it may all be due to the federal government. The Securities and Exchange Commission wants to have a chat with the rapper concerning an investigation into his clothing line, but his lawyers say demands for “unlimited” testimony by the star amount to a “celebrity hunt.” Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter, has been called to testify in the SEC’s case against Iconix brand management company, which bought the trademarks to the singer’s Rocawear clothing line for $200 million. Their investigation centers on potential securities law violations by Iconix, which manages and licenses clothing brands while maintaining little overhead from inventory. Jay-Z has already agreed to testify for a full day before the regulatory agency, even though he claims to have little information about the investigation’s focus. But his attorneys argue that requiring unlimited questioning places “unreasonable and burdensome demands” on Beyonce’s husband, as he prepares for a 45-date, world-wide concert tour promoting his 4:44 album. “The SEC continues to insist on meeting Mr. Carter in person for an unlimited period of time,” attorney Alex Spiro argued in a Monday court filing. “The upshot imposes unreasonable burdens on Mr. Carter and raises serious questions about whether this exercise has transcended any investigative purpose and crossed over into a celebrity hunt.” In a statement filed with the legal memo, Jay-Z stated that rushing to testify at the SEC’s Washington, D.C. headquarters on May 11 would “impair the work of many individuals and entities who are preparing for the tour and will hinder my own work in preparation for the tour.” SEC attorneys are scheduled to file a response on Tuesday, hours before a scheduled hearing on the matter in Manhattan federal court.

Beyoncé gives $100,000 in Scholarships to 4 historically black schools....

Beyoncé paid tribute to historically black colleges during her groundbreaking #Coachella performance this past weekend, and now the singer is donating $100,000 to four black universities... The superstar singer announced Monday the Homecoming Scholars Award Program for the 2018-2019 academic year through her BeyGOOD initiative. She plans to give $25,000 each to Tuskegee University, Bethune-Cookman University, Xavier University of Louisiana and Wilberforce University. One student from each school will receive the scholarship money. Beyoncé’s Coachella festival set was critically acclaimed, as Beyoncé paid tribute to the marching bands, the dance troupes and step teams at historically black colleges. Last year, the singer launched the Formation Scholars Awards Program, supporting creative and bold young women, in celebration of the one-year anniversary of her “Lemonade” album.

Social Media Is Freaking Out Over The Real Meaning Of Fenty Beauty

One of the many perks of being a celebrity is that you can go by whatever name you damn well please. Demanding that others refer to you only as Snoop Dogg when your birth certificate says Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr., might be grounds for an HR violation if you work at a conservative paper-supply company, but it's a completely respectable alias for a legendary rapper. (It also helps to differentiate from all the other Calvins in the music biz, such as Calvin Harris, whose real name isn't Calvin at all but rather Adam Richard Wiles.) Like Cher (born Cherilyn Sarkisian), Madonna, Beyoncé, and Sting (aka Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner) before her, Robyn Fenty ditched her regular-person name for the mononymic Rihanna — her middle name, which comes from the Arabic word for "sweet basil" — when she first entered the public eye. But a stage name is a stage name: The Barbadian star is still Robyn to her friends and family, and she gives her non-musical projects, like her Fenty x Puma collab, the Fenty name. Hence, Fenty Beauty by Rihanna — an obvious choice for her instantly-iconic new beauty brand. Apparently it was not so obvious for some of the singer's so-called fans, since a bunch of them just discovered several years too late that Fenty is not a random assortment of letters or some kind of acronym but actually Rihanna's real-life last name. For some reason, these people are broadcasting their dearth of knowledge on Twitter... and it is not going over well with the Rihanna Navy.   Wow, we’re shocked to get to know that Fenty is Rihanna’s last name. We had no idea. pic.twitter.com/jasNdiPEui — Victoria (@fentyshine) September 21, 2017 Call yourselves Rihanna fans but didn't know Fenty was her last name 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄 bye basics — Amanda (@badgalmandyyy) September 20, 2017
