Beyonce shares pics from her family vacation to the Dominican Republic: cute?

bey

Beyonce and Jay-Z celebrated their sixth anniversary several days ago. And seeing as how their anniversary coincided quite nicely with the end of Beyonce’s Mrs. Carter Tour, Bey and Jay decided to go on holiday in the Dominican Republic. E! News says they were/are staying at the Casa de Compo resort, and Blue Ivy was there too of course. Jay was apparently spotted all over the place – one witness saw him pushing Blue Ivy on a swing, and another witness says that Jay told a Nets-t-shirt-wearing dude “cool shirt, man.”

So, of course Beyonce had to share the love. She posted a bunch of photos on her Tumblr from her beach vacation. Blue Ivy is getting so big! You can’t see Blue’s face of course, but Blue is getting longer. And I like Beyonce’s curls so much. She looks incredibly young without any makeup too – she looks like she’s about 16 years old in that photo in the tree.

Also, according to Hollywood Life’s sources (???),Kanye West’s asked Jay to be his best man and Jay was all “Nah, man.” Jay apparently doesn’t want to be associated with the downmarket Kardashians. But you know what? I bet you $10 that Beyonce and Jay attend Kanye and Kim’s wedding. But before that, we get the Met Gala. Will Beyonce be there? Will Kim?

PS… Did anyone else see that “Who is Jay-Z?” was the answer to Final Jeopardy on Tuesday? It was awesome.

    Looks like that beer commercial.

  2. Dani2 says:

    Cute. *sigh* I wish I was on holiday with my bubba.

  3. GeeMoney says:

    SNOOZE.

    She looks like a 5 year old in that black and white pic of her in the tree to me for some reason.

    • V4Real says:

      What’s with that sweater, it is hot as hell in DR.

      She should retire the trick of not showing Blue’s face in pics we have already seen too many frontal pics of her. We know what she looks like.

    • Eleanor Zissou says:

      She looks like a little boy.

      Also, if someone I considered my friend refused to be my maid of honur, I would never speak to them again. You do NOT refuse such a thing unless there’s a very very good reason.

      • idk says:

        Was Kanye Jay’s best man at his wedding? E Network is producing and televising the Kimye wedding…I’m sure a lot of their celeb friends don’t want to be on the show.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I think a “very good” reason is that you don’t want to be a part of a tacky product that is being sold for mass consumption. If it was just a wedding, that would be one thing. This isn’t so much a wedding as it is a TV special for E!…just like the last 2 weddings the Kardashians have produced.

      • Chicagogurl says:

        I’ve refused moh twice! I’ve been a bridesmaid 13 times and a moh 2 additional times. First time I refused was because my friend was in a physically abusive relationship that I could not condone. She was offended but the relationship she was in ended and were on good terms years later. The second was the bride and I were not close but since she was marrying my best friend she felt obligated. I simply told her that bridesmaid was good enough and the person standing next to her should be someone she wants to honor and not someone she met only a few times months prior and had no long standing relationship with. She instead chose her step-sister which was a much better situation for all. I have also turned down bridesmaid a few times for different reasons whether they be financial or personal. Only once did someone cut me out of their lives for being honest and we weren’t good friends to begin with.

      • Eleanor Zissou says:

        That doesn’t matter. Where I come from, these things are sacred. You never refuse to be the best man/ maid of honour, godparent, etc. It’s incredibly rude and disrespectful.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        What Tiffany said. If someone decided to not be friends with me because I didn’t want to be on a tacky reality TV show wedding then they’re probably not a good friend. But I would never be friends with someone who does something like that anyway.

      • Kiddo says:

        What happens when you do those vaporub infomercials? Huh? I bet there will even be low level celebs talking it up with before and after shots. I’m telling you right now, I am not coming on your show in my bee hat!

      • Emily C. says:

        @Elanor: What if you don’t have the money to buy the hideous dress the bride wants you to wear, or don’t have the physical capabilities to do it? Also, where I come from, godparent is a serious responsibility. It is not one you shove off onto people without their enthusiastic consent. And you do NOT accept it unless you are positive you want to do it.

        I hate the whole “bridesmaid” tradition quite a lot anyway. I do not think standing up in a line wearing a stupid matchy-matchy dress shows one’s friendship for someone. Helping someone move is a true sign of friendship. The whole “bridesmaid” thing is just plain silly.

      • Eleanor Zissou says:

        Well, not having physical capabilities to do it is a pretty good reason. And being a godparent is very serious ( but they’re not guardians, if the parents die the kids go to family. They’re religious guides ) so people generally ask their best friends. I thought Kanye and Jay Z were close.

        And wait, you have to buy your own bridesmaid dress?!?! We don’t really have bridesmaids, just one best man and a maid of honour and they can dress how they want. I’ve been to a couple of weddings where there were bridesmaids ( because the brides watched too much rom-coms) and the bride always bought dresses for all of them. YOU HAVE TO BUY YOUR OWN HIDEOUS DRESS?! I did not know that.

      • Kiddo says:

        @Emily C., totally cosigned.

      • Tatjana says:

        It’s the same in my country. Being a maid of honour/ best man / godparent is very important and people usually ask their close friends. Refusing is very offensive.

        I’ve only been to one wedding with bridesmaids ( we also don’t have them) and the bride paid for their dresses. She also paid for the dresses and suits of the flowerkids. I didn’t know you bridesmaids buy their own dresses in the States.

      • Pepsi Presents...Coke says:

        You get the ‘honour’ of paying for the dress, throwing the bride a shower (and buying a present) throwing a bachelorette party (and buying stuff) buying a wedding gift, making a speech and more. If you’re unlucky, you’ll get one of those Crazed Fiancees who expect you to make your world revolve around her for the entirety of her engagement (fortunately, I haven’t had to deal with that) and there are a few ladies out there who purposefully choose dresses for their bridesmaids that are ugly so she’ll look the best. I’ve seen that, luckily I was not a member of the wedding party, but it was a cash bar event so…ugh. If someone told me they would stop speaking to me because I might feel more suited to, or were only capable of taking on a different role in the ceremony, I would be within my rights to dismiss her as a ‘Bridezilla’ and a lot of people would back me up–especially if she claimed that I was jealous or wanted to sabotage things.

        Saw that once and at a shotgun wedding, no less. I was wearing long sleeves but nothing could insulate the chill between wife and mother-in-law. Okay, it ended up being pretty funny because during the reception they had a time slot that allowed the kids to talk and do whatever and there were some gems. Now, this was when Eminem was at his peak, so what did the groom’s (very younger) brother sing? ‘I’m sorry mama, I never meant to hurt you, I never meant to make you cry but tonight I’m cleaning out my closet.’ Oops. He really was just a wee little one and it was a (hilarious) coincidence.

        There is this annoying attitude within some sectors of that whole wedding culture that a lot of people say they won’t adopt but it doesn’t always work out that way. It’s that sector that forwards the notion that the only way to show a bride your love is to spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars on her. Wedding Princess Culture is way out of hand and it reveals that there is a sad amount of women who are more focused on being a bride than on being a wife. It’s the most important day of her life, so it must be of yours as well. And here go he’ll come if you waste her day by worshipping at the church’s altar, rather than hers.

        I’ve experienced great brides and have witnessed heinous ones and unfortunately the latter group is expanding because girls are brought up with the notion that everything in her life had been leading up to this day and now life is validated. I’m happy for the bride, but come on with that.

        I’m now just a bit older than my sister was when got married. If anyone asks about it I just say it was different for her because she was taller, or that I’m too real, whatever works.

      • Tatjana says:

        Jesus frickin’ Christ,weddings in America sound horrible, If you have a bachelorette party, you pay for all your guests ( It’s the same with birthdays here, if I invite friends out for my birthday, I pay for their food and drinks the entire night).
        Weddings are quite fun in my country. The bride’s guests gather at her house and the groom’s gather at his house ( lots of food and drink). Then the groom’s guests go to the bride’s house ( more food and drink) Then church. Then the reception ( more food. A lot of food. A lot to drink). And the party usually lasts till 7 AM. The parent’s spilt the bill. Apart from the presents ( most people just give cash) you don’t pay for much.

      • Josephine says:

        I would refuse to be involved in a commercial farce of a wedding. It’s not a wedding – it’s a paid television event. Remember the ole’ 72-day marriage? The “bride and groom” are getting a paycheck, so I would feel no need at all to attend their paid infomercial of a wedding and pretend to be a best man so that two rich people can make a sham out of the institute of marriage and make more money off of stupid people who tune it to see it.

      • Nikki says:

        Weddings in the US differ according to socioeconomic level and plain old bride preference.

        If you have money, it’s polite, but not expected, to pick up the tab on your bridal party’s gowns. Showers costs may or may not be divided among bridesmaids as well as the bride’s mother and aunts and many brides don’t even have a bachelorette party.

        Yes, being a bridesmaid is a huge honor, but it also has the potential for being a huge financial burden. Any bride who doesn’t understand that and cuts a friend out of her life over what amounts to an overpriced party, is a piece of shit human being.

    • boopti says:

      I know. Is it cynical that the first thing I thought was, ‘fillerz.’ Lol. But seriously, when you’re in your 30s and are the skinniest you’ve ever been in life, it makes no sense that your face would then become more plump, full and cherubic than ever. Sure sign of injectables..unless she’s pregnant…which I doubt.

  4. Allie says:

    She does look so much better without makeup. I just wish these photos were from them, not a professional photographer. It makes the set up seem fake and insincere.

  5. aims says:

    I want to be in that picture, the one where she’s drinking wine and looking at the ocean with her husband. It looks divine.

  6. Anonny says:

    Do they have a photographer on staff, or does the nanny do double-duty? Seriously, who schedules photo shoots on their vacations?

    • Erm says:

      Narcissists do. Particularly narcissists who try to have unflattering photos removed from the internet.
      Having said that, Beyonce is a gorgeous woman and I love how she looks when she is in “low key” mode. I don’t doubt that the photos are carefully posed, vetted and photoshopped to keep up the Beyonce = beautiful and ageless myth, but neither do I think they need to work hard to keep up that image.

    • QQ says:

      She Does have a photographer in staff, actually, and every pic and video of hers in archives in ny from what i understand

      • Eva says:

        From her GQ article

        Anytime she wants to remind herself of all that work—or almost anything else that’s ever happened in her life—all she has to do is walk down the hall. There, across from the narrow conference room in which you are interviewing her, is another long, narrow room that contains the official Beyoncé archive, a temperature-controlled digital-storage facility that contains virtually every existing photograph of her, starting with the very first frames taken of Destiny’s Child, the ’90s girl group she once fronted; every interview she’s ever done; every video of every show she’s ever performed; every diary entry she’s ever recorded while looking into the unblinking eye of her laptop.

        Definitely a narcisist.

      • Val says:

        On the one hand it’s a pretty crazy thing to do… on the other hand… it’s kinda cool to have stuff recorded like that.. our memory is so fickly, so it would be fun to go back and relive certain moments.
        Having said that, there must be so much material in there it would be long and annoying to go through it all. Does she also employ “Beyoncé archivists”?

    • Tiffany :) says:

      To be fair, I think most people take a lot of pictures of themselves and their families when they are on vacation. That is where the sterotype of the boring vacation slideshow jokes come from. “Normal” people post vacation photos on facebook/instagram ALL the time.

      Not that I don’t think she is a narcisist…I just don’t think this is the best example of that.

    • swack says:

      Isn’t she the one having her life documented 24/7? So I think, if I am correct, that yes there is a photographer there for all the pictures.

    • Kaylah says:

      She has a personal photographer and videographer for when she’s working but these type of pictures are taken by either her, her husband or maybe the bodyguard/nanny. Not sure.
      The photographer/videographer doesn’t follow her home that’s why the personal videos on her documentary were wonky because she recorded them with her macbook camera.

      Re: the temperature controlled archive is there because in 2003 she was filmed rehearsing for her Baby Boy video and performing at the MTV VMAs for the MTV Diary show, fast forward a couple of years and she was editing a tour special and wanted to make use of said footage but MTV said no. Seeing as it was her image she wanted to use she was pissed. So from then on any performance, interview or whatever she’s doing she makes sure she has her own copy.

  7. Mel M says:

    It seems like they take a vacation once a month and always post these sort of pics, why is this newsworthy?

  8. Lucy says:

    The black and white photograph of her standing on the tree branches is stunning.

  9. blue marie says:

    What a beautiful location. Man, I need a vacation like that one.

  10. Missy says:

    So fake and so tired of them. If they were so in love why would they have to publish for all to see. Real love doesn’t require an audience.

    • Emily C. says:

      Tell that to all the people who insist on posting endless pictures of themselves on Facebook every time they go on vacation, or all the people in the past who made their friends sit through hundreds of slides of their vacations. It’s got nothing to do with love, and everything to do with this strange compulsion a large number of people have to show everyone else dozens of pictures of themselves on their vacations.

  11. Candy Love says:

    Has she gotten any negative press or backllash lately? Because that seems to be the only time she puts out happy family, makeup free photos.

    • applapoom says:

      A couple days ago in the Daily Mail there was something about Jay-Z wearing a shirt with a symbol that has anti-white sentiments. Did not bother reading the article. You are probably right. Like that whole flattering Beyonce autobio after the balloon pregnancy shi*storm.

      She is ridiculously beautiful though

      • Candy Love says:

        Yap that’s when it all started after the autobio , there was the wedding pictures after the hospital incident, after that it was the happy makeup free pictures of her and J on the swing were which were posted I do believe after the I just had a baby so I’m just like you article.

        The list goes on and on and on, it works so I see why she keeps doing it.

  12. InLike says:

    Some hollywood star vacation photos are more like statements of ‘look at how much better our lives are than yours is”.

    Beyonce and JayZ consistantly come across this way to me.

  13. Jaded says:

    Social media – the panacea for elitist narcissists who at once crave the public’s adoration but disdain engaging with them.

  14. Hissyfit says:

    And she claims to be private?

  15. Mean Hannah says:

    All I got out of this was – Casa de Campo, huh? When I was 15 (so 25 years ago), my Dad took us there for our Spring Break vacation. We had a great time but now, I can never remember that vacation without thinking about what my Dominican friend said when I told her about our trip: the resort doesn’t allow Dominicans unless you are very rich and well connected, except, of course, if you work there.

    • Aysla says:

      I’m Dominican and that doesn’t ring true. It’s a ‘luxury’ resort so it’s more expensive than what the normal family there could afford, that’s for sure.

      For those of you keeping track of places-to-visit-before-I-die: Punta Cana! Or if you want to stay more to the north, stay in Santiago and drive up to Puerto Plata for some of the most gorgeous scenery you’ll ever see. My camera battery died on the drive up and I wanted to kick myself.

    • Asiyah says:

      I’m also Dominican, and I’ve heard different stories. I don’t know first hand since my parents’ friends own a villa there, but then again, they’re rich and well-connected.

  16. Zzzzz to the BS says:

    Geez, I would never really consider myself a Beyonce fan but you guys are quite the crowd. A few tumblr pics every so often and y’all call her everything but a child of God. It’s not and will never be that serious. The low-key shade and racism that this site has towards black women is appalling. I’m starting to stay away from this site more and more.

    • I Choose Me says:

      Oh please! Just because Beyonce who happens to be black gets some shade on here does not mean people are racist. If you were a regular you would know that is patently untrue. Black women like Viola Davis, Queen Latifah, Octavia Spencer and Lupita N’yongo are all well liked here.

      Criticism does not equal racism.

    • Anna says:

      Could not agree with you more they seem to really go for Beyonce on this site.

      • Zzzzz to the BS says:

        And Rihanna too. Just about any Black woman that has reached a certain level of success. They love you when you’re at a level that’s low enough for them to still be superior. When you’ve passed that, they get uncomfortable.

      • word says:

        Who is “they”? Just curious.

        By the way Rihanna and Beyonce both just got off very successful WORLD tours. You know the world right? A place filled with many races and ethnicities. People of all races by their albums and listen to their music. No one is holding Rihanna back or Beyonce.

      • Latisse says:

        @Word, she is talking about this site. Not the world. People that post on this site have issues with very successful black celebrities: see the comment section of any post about Rhi, Bey, or Oprah.

        I agree with every single word that Zzzz to the BS has said. The low key shade, racism, jealousy is gross.

      • Emily C. says:

        I think most people who comment on this site don’t have these issues, but I think people with these issues flock to posts about these women. You’ll see similar things (though obviously with different origins and implications) on any post about Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie, or Kristen Stewart. I think people comment more about what they dislike than what they like, whatever the site.

        I like Beyonce and Rihanna fine and I post here. I don’t ever comment on Rihanna posts because some of the comments have gotten downright scary about her in the past. I’ll try to defend these women more in the future when I think the criticism of them is unfair or out of proportion.

        I do understand what you mean by “low-key racism”. There are subtle differences between the way someone like Goop is usually criticized and the way Beyonce et al are usually criticized that I’m sure you’re better at defining than I am, and they are definitely there.

      • word says:

        @ Latisse

        I come to this site a lot, and I see equal hate for all. You have a right to your opinion, and I have the right to mine. I see plenty of women who are not Black get just as much hate on here. Mindy Kaling, Kate Middleton, Jessica Alba, Miley Cyrus, etc. The hate is the same all around. Just because someone doesn’t like a certain celebrity, you shouldn’t automatically assume it has to do with their race. That is so insane. I don’t like Miley Cyrus, but I could care less she is white, that has nothing to do with it. I like Beyonce, and her race has nothing to do with why I like her. I see people for PEOPLE.

    • InLike says:

      @ZZZZ to the BS

      Be so kind as to point out the “low key” racist statements towards black women on this thread.

      I’d love for you to enlighten me.

    • AlmondJoy says:

      ZZZZ to the BS: I agree with both of your comments. It’ll cause tons of outrage and arguments, so I won’t say much else because it’s tiring. But in my opinion, you are correct.

    • Val says:

      Nah, this is celebitchy, we bitch about everyone: black, white, blue, green or purple.

      Amber Heard, Goop, Miley,… etc get way more hate than Beyoncé. If you only look at threads about black women, it may seem that way, but otherwise it’s pretty equally spread.

    • cloud&feather says:

      There are lots of other vapid and/or self-obsessed celebs that get the same thing, “shade,” on here (see: ScarJo, Portman, Head, Goop, Hathaway, Cyrus, Gaga, etc.) and they’re white.

      Miley in particular posted photos every five minutes and people were screaming that they had enough and could she please go away. People do get tired of seeing selfie after selfie and it does make one look like a bit of a narcissist.

      As for Lupita, she seems to be getting the same treatment from SOME as any other It Girl, just like Megan Fox, Jennifer Lawrence, etc. and others. The same cycle of stages of “we love you!” “we want to see you in everything!” “we love your style” “holy crap, who’s your stylist!?” “WHY is this girl EVERYWHERE!?” “OMG, enough campaigning already!” “Go away!”

      None of that is reserved for just the black women.

      My half-black teen son doesn’t like Beyonce’s or JayZ photo shoot either. Wanna nag him about being a racist too?

      I just showed him your comment and he laughed all the way down the hallway.

      • Zzzzz to the BS says:

        Your half-black son huh? Well shouldn’t he be in school this fine afternoon instead discussing Jay Z and Beyonce’s tumblr on Celebitchy? SMH you’re “half-black son” as if that validates anything. Soo much to say, not enough time to say it lol

      • MsAnn says:

        ZZZZ- you are aware kids are on spring break right now, correct?

      • word says:

        @ ZZZZZ

        So a son and mother can’t talk about celebrity gossip together? People don’t have to like Beyonce just like people don’t have to like Miley. You, yourself said you don’t really like Beyonce so does that make you racist? I’m sure there is one white or latina celeb you don’t like. Oh I guess according to your theory, you’re a racist because you don’t like them right? God forbid a celebrity just be annoying, nope, the only reason to hate a celeb is because of their skin color. Ok thanks for letting us know that. You don’t even know what race the people commenting on here are…so your “theory” really doesn’t hold.

      • Zzzzz to the BS says:

        word, take a seat with InLike and her son. Shoot get yourselves a damn stadium for all the seats you need! It’s not about liking or disliking someone. It’s about hating someone for EVERYTHING they do. Including taking some pictures for her fans and putting them on her personal tumblr account. F.o.h if you don’t understand that!

      • word says:

        ZZZZZZZZ

        Still, how is it racist not to like her? I’m sure there are celebs you don’t like…big deal. Your comments and reasoning behind them make no sense. Anyone who hates Beyonce is a racist. Ok then. Thanks for clearing that up.

        Why does everyone need to “go take a seat”, as if only your opinion matters. That’s really not mature of you at all.

    • Candy Love says:

      So people on this site are racist if they don’t like Rihanna and Beyonce ? Ok I guess you learn something new every day.

      Do you ever read a Goop, ScarJo, Portman, Amber Head, Goop, , Cyrus, Gaga, Kate Middleton/William, Jennifer Lawrence, Kardashian, Leann, Lindsay lohan, Katherine Heigl, Johnny deep, Justine Timberlake ex….. Post?

    • Latisse says:

      Zzzzz to the BS, I am starting to stay away from this site too. As a black woman, the low key racism does not sit well with me either.

    • KB says:

      You haven’t been paying attention. Read the comments on a Jennifer Lawrence or Miley Cyrus post. They’re both whiter than white and get just as much criticism as Beyonce. And how about Gwyneth Paltrow? It’s not about racism, it’s about annoying, narcissistic celebrities!

  17. crose says:

    I got the Jay-Z question right ! MAGNA CARTA!

  18. AlmondJoy says:

    Beautiful pics. My hubby and I take and post photos when we go on vacay as well, I guess we’re horrible people too.

  19. TRUTHFULLY says:

    THAT IS NOT HER NATURAL HAIR. SHE IS WEARING A WEAVE. AND THE PICTURES ARE OKAY.

  20. idk says:

    I like her vacation pics. It’s nice to see how billionaires spend their free time. Oh I can only dream ! At least she brings her child on vacation with her. Beyonce looks amazing without make-up and so young. She should go “natural” more often.

  21. lisa2 says:

    She looks beautiful barefaced.

    It is so strange to me how she and Jay have opened all these personal moments for the public when they spent years being so private.

  22. Lisa says:

    Whatever, y’all. I like Beyonce.

    • Zzzzz to the BS says:

      I like Beyonce most of the time. I can be critical of her because she (like most celebs) are full of ish. That being said, Beyonce is like the most boring celebrity ever. I honestly don’t know why so many people just vehemently hate her. She’s not even controversial enough to have that much hate! lol

    • KB says:

      I’m a Houstonian and I drive past the Knowles-Rowland Center for Youth in downtown every day. As annoying as she can be, and I do think she’s narcissistic (archives? seriously?) I can’t help but like her.

  23. lucy2 says:

    I could see posting a couple of pics of the scenery and maybe one or two of them having fun, but having a professional photographer document a family vacation (and every other moment) in this way is just flat out WEIRD. A moment with the two of them sitting together looking out over the water should be lovely, but can it be when there’s some photographer standing there? She lives her whole life like a photo shoot.

  24. Ag says:

    she looks great without the makeup. and blue IS getting SO big! (or “long”? i’m never sure when you switch from calling babies “long” to saying they’re “tall.”)

  25. Eleonor says:

    I am always stunned how Bey looks younger in these family-shoot.

  26. Lia says:

    She should be makeup-free all the time ’cause she’s gorgeous :)
    the family pics are the cutest of her Tumblr… I am a fan but I still think it’s creepy to have a photographer following you everywhere and having an archive of everything you do :/

  27. Pumpkin Pie says:

    I am only speculating here, but given how vain Beyoncé seems to be, she won’t show blue ivy’s face because she looks way to much like Jay-z and she doesn’t want people to point that out. There!

    • Zzzzz to the BS says:

      Hmmmm and they say there’s no racism on this site. Y’all are funny! But i’m sleep though..

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        @Zzzzzz I don’t see how that’s racist. It’s mean, petty, unkind, immature and unnecessary, though, I’ll give you that.

        @Pumpkin Pie
        Hold on while I find a puppy for you to kick. You do realize you’re attacking a baby, right?

      • andypandy says:

        Sigh…Its mean but how is it racist ?? Have you have been on black gossip sites and seen the stuff they say about Blu !!
        Again BW Here (cuz thats so important when stating my opinion) My Outlook is Yes racism is everywhere but not everything is racism
        This is just one snarky but often hilarious gossip site

      • me says:

        First of all how do we know what race “pumpkin pie” is? She said something mean, but definitely not racist. I guess anytime we read a comment against Beyonce, we are supposed to assume the person who wrote it must be white? Please, there are plenty of black people who don’t like Beyonce. I guess from now on, we all have to mention what race we are when we leave a comment so people don’t mistake our dislike for a celebrity as racism. Give me a break.

      • Candy Love says:

        To that I give you why is Kim never seen with her baby.

    • I Choose Me says:

      I’ve seen Blue Ivy’s face and she looks pretty darn cute to me – a mix of Bey and Jay. Why the hell are you attacking a baby’s looks?

    • Pumpkin Pie says:

      Having read the reactions to my post:
      1. I am not a racist
      2. I never said Blue Ivy is not a good looking child. Actually, I think she is very pretty
      3. I stress that I was “speculating”
      4. I made that speculation because I remembered reading so many comments – on DM mostly about the strong resemblance between Blue Ivy and Jay Z and I put that in relation to Beyonce’s obvious vanity,

    @Zzzzz to the BS
    BW here though more of a lurker than a poster gotta tell its pretty much Equal opportunity snarking that takes place here LOL..Except for the occasional” black-face is OK cuz its in Europe crowd” and of course Michael Fassbender has poor taste in women (Implied ) Crowd ..Brahhah haw
    Have to admit though those repeated posts about how Bee and Blu look like boys i.e masculine got pretty major side eye today ..Peace

    • Eleanor Zissou says:

      Fassy’s girfriends have all been drop dead gorgeous so far.
      Black face does not have the same connotation in some European countries as it does in America.

      • andypandy says:

        FYI I am not an American other than that I will not engage you any further cuz what you need to learn you will not learn on a gossip site
        P.S For the heck of it please Google “white-face and see what that tells you

      • Tatjana says:

        I really am curious. My country never had slavery or minstrel shows. Prior to coming to this site, I didn’t know something like blackface exists. You can’t expect everyone to know American history.
        For an example, if someone here raised three fingers and pointed them at me, I would be extremely offended. If that happened in America, I wouldn’t because I don’t expect you to know what it means.
        And I googled Whiteface. It is a mountain in New York.

      • cloud&feather says:

        I think you know very well she didn’t mean mountains in this context. Of course not everyone knows American history, but that alone doesn’t erase or discount the gross intention of blackface for many Americans and those who do know.

      • Tatjana says:

        I honest to God do not know what whiteface is. I really don’t.
        Of course it doesn’t discount the intention for Americans and those who do know – that is my point, many people don’t know. I would never do it now that I know.
        That comedian in Vienna who impersonated Kanye, I doubt he knew he was being offensive. He played Kanye who happens to be black.

  29. Reece says:

    I wonder how much she spends on hair alone? It’s gotta be 5 figures. 6 figs including staff.

  30. Mingy says:

    gimme a break with the racist shit! heaven forbid anyone says anything about beyonce! jeez if u only click on posts about beyonce to see negative comments then DUH!!!! click on other posts, you’ll quickly see that shade is spread evenly (actually kim k gets more than her fair share (because, of course). so if i don’t like beyonce, i’m a racist? GTFO!
    you don’t have to know why someone doesn’t like a person/actor/singer, there’s nothing to “get”. just like you don’t need to justify why you don’t like someone to me…it’s your prerogative. if you want to see comments kissing beyonce’s ass, i’m quite sure she has a million fan-sites. but pulling the race card here? come on!

    anyway, i love her vacation hair, she always rocks those curls.

    • Zzzzz to the BS says:

      Hmmm maybe you should re-read my post, focus on your reading comprehension, and come back with comment that makes sense. This is not about liking or dis-liking because as I’ve stated (TWICE) before, I’d hardly consider my self a devoted Beyonce fan and I am critical of her when need be.

      PS. Do yourself a favor and working on your lame typing skills. Either that or buy a computer that has a working shift button so you can use capitals next time :)

  31. Mingy says:

    @ word, i should have read you’re comments before mine, cuz you said everything i wanted to and much more ! ;)

  32. Damaris says:

    Beyoncé just wrapped up a tour that started last year. She released a full-length album with music videos that she’s had to shoot in between touring. She’s been making appearances at award shows and events. Man, I don’t work that hard. She deserves a vacation more than anyone. Her career genuinely seems tiring.

  33. TG says:

    I think Bey looks gorgeous in that tree pic. I know I have said some mean stuff about Bey before but I also think I have said good things too. I don’t know or necessarily think it is racism but I do feel the hate toward Bey is out of control on most of her posts so I have stayed away from them same goes for Angelina and Kate Middleton posts. Also I think some people have Google Alerts for certain celebs they hate because on some posts about certain celebs you see a lot more names of people who don’t post regularly, which makes me think they aren’t regular Celebitchy readers. The Kate Middleton posts have gotten ridiculous, especially with the stupid shaming her for not putting weights in her dresses. I guess to me I don’t give a rats butt if her dress flies up. Someone actually said yesterday in reference to the pic with Prince George pulling her hair that it is one more reason why she needs to cut her hair. If Kate isn’t bothered by her son’s interest in her hair why the heck would anyone else be bothered by it? So that kind of bizarre stuff is off putting, though I won’t pretend I haven’t dumped a load of snark off on Waity myself. I find Bey and Kate fascinating and will alway look at pics when I come across them.

    • Dame Snarkweek says:

      TG
      Your statement is making me feel like just maybe I’m not alone. The Kate threads have degenerated baaaaadly. And in such a short amount of time :(

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I agree with you both. People on both sides of the aisle on the Beyoncé, Will and Kate, and Anniston/ Jolie threads are just out of control. I have complimented and criticized all of the above, and everyone has a right to their opinion, but these threads seem to bring out the really bitter, hateful posters. And TG, I have also noticed that the people who are the most aggressive and uncivil don’t post on many other threads, I just never thought of your explanation. And Dame Snarkweek, it did happen so fast, didn’t it? :-(

    • I Choose Me says:

      Hm, you guys have a point. Some of the vitriol that gets unloaded towards certain celebs: Kim K, Kate Middleton, Halle Berry, Aniston/Jolie, Gwyneth etc., is indeed sometimes OTT.

      Like you, I’ve said positive things about Beyonce. She’s talented, her work ethic is insane and she’s a very beautiful woman. But if I’m being completely honest with myself, I’m more likely to comment on a Beyonce post because I don’t like her. I certainly don’t comment on every thread but your post has got me thinking I gotta check my negativity somewhat.

    • Sixer says:

      I don’t really have a dog in this fight but here’s another perspective:

      1) I am snarky. I enjoy being snarky. So I’m much more likely to comment negatively than positively. Perhaps it’s a character flaw but y’know. I’m not trying to earn a ticket to heaven by posting here. I’m just mucking about.

      2) You’ll only see my negativity on a limited number of threads. This isn’t subtle racism, or sockpuppetry or anything else sinister. It’s because I’m a) British and b) don’t watch reality TV or soaps or listen to bland pop and c) have no interest in fashion, so I’ve never heard of half the people written about here, an American site. Can’t be bitchy about someone unless you actually know who they are!

      So y’know. There are usually simple explanations for things.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Sixer,
        Everyone knows who you are, and who the sixletts are, and you are appreciated for your humor and insights. Nobody is talking about you. We love and need snark! I’m talking about the posters who attack each other and call each other names and go on and on and on or say ridiculous things like you can tell from a picture that baby George has no soul. You know, the crazy people.

    • Dame Snarkweek says:

      TG
      Thank yu so much for expressing this.
      I Choose Me
      Your comment also made me feel so much better about the way I’ve been feeling lately here. You strike me as brave and sincere.
      GoodNames
      Ita with everything you said. Mr. snark patiently let me whine and lay out the whole dilemma to him about this. His advice: do the right thing even if you feel like you’re alone. Well, you and a few other gems have convinced me that I am in good company.
      Sixxer
      Your comment actually proved a theory that I have formed: only the most rational/moderate/good-natured commenters are likely to stop and consider the thought that some of this crap is getting out of control. You are a fun, juicy snarker just like me and you never come across as embittered or blind with underlying rage/disgust for celebrities. This plus you always crack me up :)

      My hat is off to you ladies!

  34. Pandy says:

    Amazing what a boat load of makeup and photoshop/lighting can do for a person. Nothing special about her without makeup and of course her hair is a weave/extensions.

  35. Lena says:

    That’s in tortuga bay, punta cana.

  36. BackstageBitchy says:

    Not only is it mostly the norm here in the States to have to buy the dress, but of course you get no say in what it is. And brides can and do pick ANYTHING. My one friend had to buy the same $750 Vera Wang bridesmaids dress TWICE, in TWO DIFFERENT COLORS, for 2 friends’ weddings. Of course , it’s unnecessary and frankly inappropriate to choose such an outrageously expensive dress to saddle your “friends” with (especially because it was buttoned all the way up the back, wasp-waisted, and had a BUSTLE and a train, NO KIDDING) but don’t try telling daddy’s little Bridezillas that!

  37. Side-Eye says:

    I just want to chime in and say thank you to whoever brought up the race issue regarding Beyonce topics. I’m the last one to pull the race card, but I find it odd how quickly and how often people jump to attack Beyonce over the most mundane things, while I’ve seen some of the same people on this site put their cape on for Miley Cyrus. When the trailer park queen does it, it’s somehow a young woman experimenting with her sexuality, but when it’s Beyonce, suddenly she’s this desperate being who needs to take her clothes off for attention. I’m not a huge fan of hers either, but it’s really strange to me that I so often see posts on here that sound similar to some of the things Beyonce has said on feminism, but when she says it herself she’s suddenly this idiot that doesn’t know what she’s talking about, a bimbo who doesn’t know what she’s talking about, or some desperate fading star(despite her ENORMOUS continuing success and hard work getting there). It’s honestly over the top and really tacky. And for those of you who don’t see it, determined as you are to deny it because you’re these oh so educated women–look up the term misogynoir and talk to me.

  38. ladidadoo says:

    So staged. I bet they have a photograper on their payroll to take pictures of them everywhere they went. Even on “vacation”. It looks like they’re working, rather than vacationing. Baby Blue is nothing but a prop to them.

  39. Happy21 says:

    Beyoncé when she is real and without the glitz and the glamour and a little less ego is the Bey that I like. She is becoming extremely unlikeable to me in both her music and her egotistic, over exposed self. These photos are like a breath of fresh air. I wish she could be more natural more often. She’s beautiful when she is.
