The US President Barrack Obama made an unlikely confession during an interview with Ohio radio station ‘Z1079‘ the other day…that he gave Jay Z parenting tips when they met up recently!
“I made sure that Jay-Z was helping Beyoncé out and not leaving it all with mum and the mother-in-law. I’ve gotten to know these guys over the last several years. They’re good people. They’re down to earth. Beyoncé could not be sweeter to Michelle and the girls. So they’re good friends. They really are down-to-earth folks. We talk about the same things I talk about with all my friends.”
Beyoncé has admitted to TV presenter Anderson Cooper that one of her current favourite tasks is changing her daughter Blue‘s nappies: “Actually, Jay is very good. We both change diapers. I love changing diapers, I love it. I love every moment of it, it’s so beautiful. I love it all.”
And the yummy mummy also enjoys singing her baby to sleep, and taking her to work: “I make up actually a lot of crazy, corny songs. I’m mummy and when Blue sees me, today was the first time she saw me perform in rehearsal, she was very confused.”
Global superstar Beyoncé Knowles now has another thing to add to her endless CV- director of a feature-length-film! The ‘LA Times‘ reports that the Mum of baby Blue Ivy is keen to get back to work after an 8 month break: “Knowles and her representatives at agency ‘ICM‘ have in recent weeks been shopping a nonfiction film to Hollywood studios about the celebrity’s life and career.”
It will document her music career, secretive personal life, and will feature a “mix of music and personal study, blending concert footage with confessional interview.” At least she will have had a taste of it before thanks to her 2011 effort in the lead up to the release of her album ‘4‘, with ‘Beyoncé: Year of 4.’
Beyoncé performed her 1st combeback gig last night after taking a 9 month break from music. The new Mum of baby Blue Ivy performed the 1st of 3 nights at the ‘Revel Resort & Casino‘ in Atlantic City, New Jersey, to 5,500 adoring fans. She wore an array of crystal covered stage outfits, designed personally for the singer by London design house ‘Ralph & Russo‘.
She told the crowds in the ‘Ovation Hall‘: “I gotta say, it feels so good to be back home on stage.” In a clip of her preparation for the gig, she talked about reviving Sasha Fierce, her stage persona: “I’m trying to become Sasha Fierce again. She’s dead, but I need to bring her back to life.”
Doting husband Jay Z watched his wife proudly from the wings, and tweeted his opinions on her performance: “I’m gonna say this and then I’m gonna end mine. Beyoncé is the best performer in the world. Period.”
Beyoncé & Jay Z have celebrated their 4th wedding anniversary by renewing their wedding vows in a midnight ceremony on Wednesday. The couple married in 2008, but have in fact been together for over a decade.
‘Star Magazine‘ was tipped off: “Jay told Beyoncé earlier this year that he wanted to marry her all over again. They want the ceremony to be simple but elegant. They’re having ‘Nobu‘ cater it, and Jay put together a special presentation showing him and Bee through the years.”
It took place at their New York apartment, and Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin, Kanye West and Oprah Winfrey are said to have showed up. It’s unknown as to whether her father and former manager Matthew Knowles was invited to the event, but is seems unlikely given their recent conflicts.
Jay Z was spotted jewellery shopping this week at ‘Jacob and Co.‘, and emerged wearing a gold band. Her ring is yellow gold like Jay, and ‘The Daily Mail‘ claim that Jay was particularly interested in the ‘Lumina’ rare blue diamonds on display.
Beyoncé and Jay Z may just be the classiest celebrity couple out there. Instead of selling the exclusive first picture of their little girl, Blue Ivy Carter to a magazine, they’ve posted them on a ‘Tumblr‘ blog.
The intimate family portraits show both parents beaming as they hold their baby, and in others, Beyoncé‘s hand features in one-close up where she is touching Blue‘s very tiny hands.
The only writing on the page is a message from the parents themselves: “We welcome you to share in our joy. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this beautiful time in our lives. The Carter family.”
The 1-month-old baby has already surpassed the fame level of Harper Beckham, and her parents have decided to trademark her name. The pair have filed paperwork to secure their daughter’s name, and protect it against those that will try to use her name to endorse their products.

Baby Blue is just 1 month old, but Beyoncé‘s pre-pregnancy figure has returned quicker than you’d ever believe imaginable. Last night she paraded her curves at husband Jay-Z‘s show at ‘Carnegie Hall‘ in New York, an event held to benefit the ‘United Way of New York City‘ and ‘The Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation‘.
The long-sleeved Alice Temperley jersey material dress, Ofira & Lorraine Schwartz jewels, Alexander McQueen clutch, and Christian Louboutin heels created a classy ensemble that proved that she is undoubtedly a ‘yummy mummy’.
Jay still can’t shut up about his baby girl, and told the audience: “Put a hand in the air for Blue,” before performing ‘Glory‘. Later, he and Alicia Keys dueted onstage for New York anthem ‘Empire State of Mind‘.
Baby Blue Ivy Carter is only a few days old, but she’s already made her musical debut in a new track by her father, rapper Jay Z.
The Pharrell- produced song titled ‘Glory‘ features the baby’s cries towards the end of the track, as Jay sings wife about Beyoncé suffering a miscarriage before their miracle baby’s birth.
The lyrics read: “You’re my child of a child from ‘Destiny’s Child‘. Last time the miscarriage was so tragic/We was afraid you’d disappear/ But nah baby you magic. The most amazing feeling I feel, words can’t describe what I’m feeling for real / Baby, I paint the sky blue, my greatest creation was you.”
It’s official: Beyoncé has delivered her first child, a baby girl. At present, the birth has been confirmed by close friend Rihanna, actress Gwyneth Paltrow, and TV star Snooki.
Rihanna posted: “Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih,” and Snooki wrote: “Beyoncé congrats on your baby girl mama! So happy for you, you deserve it sexpot.”
The child’s name is Blue Ivy Carter. Beyoncé had a caesarean at the ‘Lenox Hill Hospital‘ in New York Saturday night. She is said to have checked into the exclusive Upper East Side hospital under the pseudonym Ingrid Jackson. She booked out the entire fourth floor spending $1.3million.
‘The Daily News‘ report that: “On Saturday night, people were seen bringing bags of takeout and a dozen bottles of red wine onto the heavily guarded hospital wing. After 11 p.m., even doctors and nurses were barred from entering the fourth floor, prompting one doc to complain that he had patients to see. In an effort to keep images from leaking to the public, hospital workers placed tape over security cameras and are forcing employees to turn in cell phones when they arrive for their shifts.”
It’s looking like baby ‘Bey-Z‘ is about to rear it’s (hopefully pretty) head any minute now, with Beyoncé almost definitely being in labour right this minute!
Not only has half of the ‘Labour & Delivery’ ward been closed off to the public at ‘St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital‘ in New York, but her Mum Tina and sister Solange have also rooted themselves in the city in time for the birth, and have been out shopping in various vintage stores, sealing their carrier bags (no doubt laden with baby gifts!) with care.
Nurses have been warned about the arrival of a ‘celebrity VIP’, and ‘MediaTakeOut.com‘ claims that the baby could be due any time from now.
Whilst filming her ‘Live At Roseland‘ DVD back in September, she told the camera: “I’m six months pregnant, pretending that my stomach is flat in body suits,” implying that she’s now reached the nine month mark.
