FUNNIEST ARTICLE OF THE DAY: US MAGAZINE (JAY-Z AND BEYONCE BACKSTAGE AT THE VMA’S)

August 31, 2011 4 comments

I just came across US Magazine’s article about Jay-Z and Beyonce and what supposedly went on backstage at the MTV Video Music Awards (after Bey flashed her baby bump), and didn’t know whether to laugh, cry or run for the sick bag.

Via US Magazine

Backstage, the first-time parents-to-be were just as pumped up. With adjacent
dressing rooms (Jay-Z, 41, shared his with pal and Watch the Throne partner
Kanye West), “Jay was doting on her the whole time,” a witness tells Us
Weekly.

And the rapper-mogul (real name: Shawn Carter) even cat-called his wife of three years! Says the backstage source: “He yelled, ‘Mmm hmmm, Who’s that sexy lady walking down here?’ playing like he was flirting with her. It was so cute.”

The “Empire State of Mind” MC was also mindful of his love’s
condition. “He was really taking care of her, asking her how she feels and
helping her walk,” the source says. “It was so sweet to see him like
that.”

Also taking care? Beyonce’s mom, Tina Knowles. “She was on top of
EVERYTHING – getting Beyonce everything she needed… Between Jay and her mom,
she was totally taken care of. Her mom was getting her everything she
needed.”

The superstar couple’s famous friends got in on the baby joy,
too.

“Kanye looked like the proud uncle!” adds the witness. And Beyonce’s
“Telephone” duet partner Lady Gaga (dressed in male drag as “Jo Calderone) made
frequent visits to the dressing room as well. “She kept coming over to rub
Beyonce’s belly and say hello,” the witness explains, “And the security guards
thought she was a guy at first and wouldn’t let her back! It was really funny.”

*Rolls eyes* Who wrote this article???  Hahahahaha.

Some folk are behaving as if Beyonce and Jay-Z are the ‘new’ Mary and Joseph. All they need now is a donkey, a stable, a manger and the three wise men.

Anyway congratulations goes out to the Carters again.

UK MUSIC: PREEYA KALIDAS FT SCORCHER – IT’S A PROBLEM

August 29, 2011 1 comment

Actress/ singer Preeya Kalidas is back with the new single It’s A Problem featuring rapper Scorcher.

….

I don’t see It’s A Problem becoming a major chart hit but it isn’t a bad single. I like the beat but as usual this is a UK effort that could have done without featuring rapper.

Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?
