Page Six: Beyonce & Jay-Z ‘trying to figure out a way to split without divorcing’

bey2

Here are some photos of Beyonce and Jay-Z, courtesy of Beyonce’s Tumblr and Instagram. I actually think Beyonce’s Tumblr is broken – it’s sort of disorganized, new photos keep disappearing and she hasn’t updated the “My Work” or the “My Life” sections in months. Instead, she just keeps posting (and deleting?) photos to the main page. And there’s still a button for the “Mrs. Carter Tour” which ended months ago. Why hasn’t it been changed to the On the Run Tour? Beyonce needs to hire some people to fix her Tumblr, that’s all I’m saying.

Anyway, as we keep hearing from the tabloids, Bey and Jay’s marriage is really rocky these days. Basically, everything that happened after Solange beat Jay-Z in the elevator is NOT GOOD. Some say “divorce in inevitable.” Some say that they’re just having problems and they’re working through it with the help of counselors. Now Page Six says that Jay is the one fighting for this marriage to work:

Beyoncé and Jay Z have more than 99 problems and only “divine intervention” can save the troubled marriage, a source close to the powerful couple has told The Post.

While Jay Z seemingly is the one most at fault, he’s also the one doing all in his power to keep the couple together, even hiring marriage counselors who are believed to be traveling with the super duo on their tour, the source said.

“They are trying to figure out a way to split without divorcing . . . This is a huge concert tour and they’ve already gotten most of the money from the promoters up front,” the source said.

Despite the tens of millions the couple will pocket from the current tour, this will certainly be their last and the end of the tour could officially spell the end of the marriage, the source said.

“There are no rings, if you haven’t noticed,” the source said, admitting that he thought things would get better after the birth of the couple’s daughter, Blue Ivy Carter.

“For just a split moment, things got real for them and she was even talking about adding to the family,” the source said. “But, after a while, Jay was out doing Jay and Bey was out doing Bey. They made the classic mistake of thinking a child would change everything and help to rekindle the initial fire, and it didn’t.”

What still amazes me is that it only took a few minutes of grainy-ass security video to mortally wound a previously untouchable couple like Beyonce and Jay. Seriously, no one had anything bad to say about them because they were so controlled and controlling of their image. Now it’s open season. Anyway, I’ll buy that they’re having issues and I’ll buy that “Jay was out doing Jay and Bey was out doing Bey.” I think that’s their deal. I think that’s how their marriage has always worked.

Oh, and I didn’t realize that Beyonce was hired to do the song for Fifty Shades of Grey! She teased the song on her Instagram:

That sort of fits. If you’ve listened to her latest album, she’s been doing a lot of sexually-charged, “I get my sexual power through submission” stuff lately.

    A lot of commenters here started seeing trouble in “paradise” since they’ve started to flaunt their amazing sexlife in public.
    I don’t know if they will ever divorce -because of pr, of business- but I do believe they have a lot of issues.

    • don't kill me i'm french says:

      Probably

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Yeah, remember that ridiculous excursion to the sex toys shop and the solid gold vibrator or whatever? That made me suspicious because they obviously wanted that story to get out, or else they would have just ordered on-line. Why do you want everyone to think you’re having fabulous, wild sex? Usually because you’re not.

    • Hyena says:

      Agreed- I have felt this way with the Brange at times too. If it’s soooo good, we don’t need to hear about it all the time! Lol

      Sucks when it’s your favorite couples though- love jayonce!

      • floretta50 says:

        The Brange? They hardly talk about sex in public.. I think that they are the complete opposite. For one thing Angie a former wild child dress like a school marm or nun these days and have gone all humanitarian and such. Don’t care to dwell on people sex life but maybe Angie’s personna is just for public consumption.

      • springingforward says:

        Really? You are trolling to bring Angelina and Brad to the table? They talk about war crimes, their efforts and encourage others to help those in New Orleans; not their sex life.
        wtf?

    • Kenny Boy says:

      Yeah, constant bragging about how solid they are and how great their love life is (as they both did on their releases last year) is never a good sign.

      • Leaflet says:

        @ SpringingForward,
        No need to be nasty and go so far as to accuse Hyena of trolling Brad and Angelina, which she is clearly not. You don’t need to hit Hyena below the belt just to prove that Brad and Angie don’t flaunt their relationship. Hyena was simply stating that she really enjoys Brad and Angie as a couple but she thinks that she may see some cracks in their marriage. Brad and Angelina are certainly not saints. No need to get your panties in a bunch and start meangirling like you’re still in middle school. No need to disrespectfully disagree because it discredits the point you’re trying to make. I agree with Hyena in the sense that I don’t believe their marriage is completely what it appears to, and I like them just as well.

      • Lola says:

        Brad and Angelina have already said that they are not perfect and they do fight like every couple so I think you are the ones putting them on a pedestal. They have never pretended to be anything but.

  2. Lucy2 says:

    It is interesting when a carefully controlled image gets dinged. But I’d be very surprised if they actually split- there’s just too much money and “brand” there. I picture them both putting on a happy public face no matter how bad things are in private.

    • Miffy says:

      Agree with everything you just said. They’re way too much of a business to let something like a troubled relationship get in the way. I foresee another pregnancy after this tour in an attempt to kill the rumours and then they can get back to pretending to be married to each other.

    • bns says:

      Yup. I feel this way about all celebrity power couples tbh.

    • Nicolette says:

      Many couples put on happy public faces everyday as to not let others know what’s really going on for many reasons. But with them there is an empire at stake, and that mighty dollar bill will keep them going.

    • Leaflet says:

      @LOLA,
      Umm..how did I put them on a pedestal? Brad and Angelina’s relationship was the result of an affair, so no, I have not seen them for more than what they are. Don’t get me wrong, I think they are really good people. I’m just simply stating that Hyena had an opinion on the way that, I think the media may portray their relationship to be perfect and not necessarily them. My focus is more on the mean manner in which SpringingForward addressed Hyena for the mild comment she made. I am not attacking Angelina or Brad in any way. Again, I like them. Reading my previous comment carefully, my whole point is that disagreeing can be done in a respectful manner because Hyena’s comment wasn’t offensive in any way.

      • Lola says:

        The media portrays Brad and Angelina as the perfect couple? Seriously? I thought the last ten years were about Brad leaving Angie for Jen taking his bio kids with him because Angie only loved the adopted ones, they both cheat, Angelina is crazy and Brad is fed up etc. So as far as I know, 90% of the media has always been negative towards them.
        As for their relationship being a result of an affair, nobody knows for sure if Brad cheated or not except the two of them.

  3. Krista says:

    I think they’ve each done their own things for awhile now. They’ll stay together for the sake of the empire. If they ever divorce I’ll eat my hat.

  4. Jem says:

    Split without divorcing because they are more profitable as a couple/brand?

    Conscientious monetorium uncoupling-?

  5. Ag says:

    i’m surprised that didn’t work. having a baby always fixes everything. maybe they should have more kids.

  6. Tiffany27 says:

    Yeah I can’t see a divorce. I see a conscious uncoupling without paperwork. If they do divorce though, that album from Bey would be amazing!

  7. epiphany says:

    Their problems aren’t anything new. When they went from not even admitting they were married to posting photos of themselves and giving interviews every time they sneezed, you knew something drastic had happened. All efforts to save the brand, which at the end of the day is what matters most to them.
    This is a marriage made in a talent agent’s office – it’s fitting that it should end in a lawyer’s.

    • MissMary says:

      I often wondered if the marriage happened b/c Beyonce wanted to be a mom but knew it’d ding her image in middle America if she had a baby while ostensiably single. Cue agents/PR getting involved, brokering a deal so to speak, relatonship for a while then a tastefully managed divorce when the kiddo is in her teens.

      I have no proof to back that up, it’s just something I wonder.

    • TheOneandOnlyOnly says:

      Great comment; fakery only lasts for so long, and in today’s transparent media culture, this fake couple was bound to be unmasked.

    • Lucinda says:

      I thought it was weird too. No one knew they were married and then they only grudgingly admitted it. Once she got pregnant, things blew up because she was all about the pregnancy but I figured things would settle down after the baby was born. When it didn’t, I just decided it was proud mama stuff. But when she released the surfboard song and it was all about her sex life, I thought something was going on. It was the first time I really reflected on how completely their PR game had changed. So I agree that something is up but I don’t know if they will split or just come to some sort of agreement. I said once before that I wouldn’t be surprised if years from now they split and Bey releases a tell-all book of some kind that portray’s Jay in a very unflattering light.

    • Annemarie says:

      You make a great point. You know a couple is heading towards a split when they talk constantly about how wonderful their relationship is.

  8. elo says:

    Oh lawd! Her outfit in that last picture is hideous!

    • Anne tommy says:

      Not keen on either of them. It’s depressing that so many women singers today feel the need to dress up in barely there leotards and bondage style stuff, I don’t see the blokes doing it. I suppose in many cases it helps to distract from the mediocre material. I sound such an old fogey and the music has always been about image too but the succession of floozies with leather hot pants in the ar@se crack is off putting.

      • Hmmm says:

        So true, she goes through lipo and dieting and gym to look her best and he is basically a guy no girl wouldn’t give a second look if he wasn’t loaded with cash.
        BTW isn’t she the top money maker in the relationship. Maybe she had a hand in leaking that elevator video to the press just to reign him in.
        Anyway, they are not getting any money from me, phoney bores – both!

      • Trashaddict says:

        ‘nother old fogey here. Aretha and Janice did not need to be half naked. And they were seriously hot mamas. You don ‘t have to show your t*ts if you’ve really got soul and charisma.

  9. Kiddo says:

    The artifice, marketing, branding, and so on, is a tell tale sign. When something has to be pushed on the public to such great lengths, its biggest strengths are just that: commercialization. To me, the two are in the running for the world’s longest and most expensive advert. I’m not saying there is no other talent, there is, but to me, they are no different than a constant-rotating TV commercial for McDonald’s, or some other mega corporation. They should just get real. People will sample Wendy’s, Burger King or go to a fine dining restaurant. It’s inevitable. Sure the food can be addictive and the people are happy in the commercials, but then you go there and realize it’s just overstuffed portions of mediocrity, salt and sugar.

  10. Panache says:

    They were having trouble even before Blue Ivy’s birth? I find that quite surprising.

  11. paola says:

    From my experience when a couple is too perfect from the outside it means loads of shite is happening behind closed doors.
    I know it might not make sense, but despite the effort Beyonce’ puts in trying be sexy/sexual/sexualized she projects an image of robotic sexiness and the result is not sexy at all. She is without a doubt an incredible beautiful woman but she is as sexy as Gwyneth Paltrow aka zero.
    I doubt they’ll divorce anyway, this is a power couple. They’d rather live separate lives as husband and wife than lose money or credibility.

    • Hyena says:

      There were rumors that Gwen and Jay hooked up (and at one point and was white dancing up a storm at his concert on the stage). When’s the last time we saw Beyonce and Gwenyth together?

    • MaiGirl says:

      So agree with what you said about “robotic sexiness.” She is a beautiful woman, but I never have and never will believe her as a sex goddess. She’s just too vacant and all of her “sexy” aspects seem to be just a performance. As silly and problematic as Rihanna is, I buy her sexiness much more.

      • TG says:

        It is interesting that you said that about Bey not really being sexy because I feel that way about a lot of celebs. I am thinking of Kim Kardashian at the moment and Bey fits with this as well. Anyone who spends every second of every day thinking about themselves and being controlled and image, etc does not striker as someone who actually has inner confidence and can let go in the bedroom because in my experience a good lover needs to stop thinking about themselves and every angle and imagining that every second and movement would look awesome on camera.

      • JWQ says:

        This made me think of that scene with Christian Bale in American Psycho!

    • Trashaddict says:

      Bey looks incredibly pretty when she is just hanging out with Blue Ivy and not all costumed up. It’s not surprising but it’s kind of sad that people don’t have the patience or endurance to keep a marriage running these days. I don’t think celebrities should get married but they love the rush of being in love or at least pretending to themselves that they are.

  12. Faye says:

    I don’t know about the elevator incident being the first time we saw cracks in the facade. On this board, at least, people have been talking for years about Jay-Z’s (alleged) affairs, possible children with other women, etc. Plus all the controversy surrounding her pregnancy. Even if it’s all just conspiracy-nut nonsense, it shows not everyone was buying into their “Perfect Supercouple” act.

    I agree with everyone else they won’t divorce, though – too much riding on the brand.

    • Nicolette says:

      +1. I don’t think the pregnancy issue was such a far out there conspiracy theory though, and I believe many celebs are doing the same. Then two weeks postpartum they shoot a magazine cover in a bikini to show off their ‘dramatic weight loss’. Used to be a couple of months, but it kept dwindling down. It’s getting so ridiculous that they’ll start doing photo shoots as they leave the hospital.

      • Faye says:

        @Nicolette – I’m not saying I necessarily think it is a conspiracy theory – I think there was convincing evidence either way – I just meant that, even if for argument’s sake you want to say there’s no way it could be true, the fact that so many people talked about such a thing showed there were issues.

        I read an article about surrogacy in one of these women’s magazines recently where a well-known surrogacy agency admitted that many celebrities (and even non-celebs) are seeking out surrogates to avoid problems with their figures, careers, etc.

      • Nicolette says:

        No worries Faye, I know what you meant. There just were some people who watched her belly deflate and then called those of us who questioned it conspiracy nuts. I can definitely understand someone using a surrogate if there are health issues involved, but for vanity sake it’s just wrong to me. Being pregnant is a unique experience in a woman’s life. There is a long line of sacrifices to be made along the road of parenthood, your figure changing is just the first. :)

      • Faye says:

        @Nicolette – Admittedly, it’s impossible for me to be objective about that topic for personal reasons, but I agree wholeheartedly. Surrogacy for health reasons is obviously not an issue, but I can’t imagine using one for vanity reasons. First, plenty of women can get in shape again, and second, if you can’t even make that much of a sacrifice, parenting might not be the right choice. Of course, many of these celebs probably have minimal involvement with the responsibilities of parenthood anyway.

  13. Jenns says:

    I think they will split when their popularity begins to decline. Right now there is still a lot of money to be made, but when the sales start to slow, that will be the perfect time to reinvent themselves as single and “looking for love”.

  14. LAK says:

    Maybe they’ll turn it around like the Beckhams did.

  15. Luca26 says:

    I doubt they will divorce. Beyoncé is too much of a perfectionist to let something like unhappiness ruin her marraige. Jay-Z likes the legitimacy that being a family man and the other half of a mega pop star brings him.

    • Dena says:

      Agree. Marriage was a come-up for him in that sense.

    • mercy says:

      I tend to agree with you, but a perfectionist might also take even more offence if she felt she had been publicly humiliated. If she gets to a point where she feels he is damaging her image and brand with his disrespectful behaviour and there is more mileage to be gained as a “strong, independent” woman who has cut herself loose from a domineering or philandering man, I can see her going for a clean break.

  16. Jaded says:

    The “I smell a turd” expression on his face says it all….she sold her soul to the devil to become a brand.

  17. pnichols says:

    who cares. they sold out years ago. cant stand them.

  18. Ivy says:

    I just want them to make it lasts until their concerts in Paris.
    After September, they’re free to split!

  19. Talie says:

    Splitting without divorcing makes a ton of sense for them — they will both be too scared about damaging their images. BUT I think Beyonce would be fine. Jay, I don’t know. He’ll lose something… probably because any woman he finds will seem trashy next to B.

  20. Dhavynia says:

    Makes me sick how the color of money makes this difficult considering how much money each have.
    It’s disgusting how people would rather be miserable in a fake marriage than give up money and lifestyle

  21. TheOriginalKitten says:

    God fur coats are so damn ugly.

  22. kimbers says:

    They can pretend to be together all they want, but the jig is up, we the people..KNOW! ;)

    • kri says:

      I actually think she would make better music on her own. Let’s just posit that some/most of the rumors are true…once you get out of a situation like that, the woman usually blossoms. I think that would happen here. We all saw Solange flip out..and Beyonce basically did not react. Of course it was wrong to physically attack him. I do wonder what was behind that rage-I’m thinking there is alot to it, and Solange didn’t just lift the veil-she knocked down a wall.

  23. Candy Love says:

    ( Seriously, no one had anything bad to say about them because they were so controlled and controlling of their image. Now it’s open season. )

    Not true these types of stories have been going around for years on the Urban blogs. The only differed now is after the security videos came out made mainstream media take notes.

  24. kibbles says:

    I don’t know…I think things can go either way at this point. Part of me thinks that Bey and Jay will never divorce because this is a business deal more than a real marriage and both are in it for the money, fame and power that they have as a couple. Another part of me thinks that maybe Bey has simply had enough with his cheating and plans to use a divorce to rebrand her image and put out a new album all about her empowerment from kicking Jay to the curb. If they ever get a divorce, I think Bey will come out of it relatively unscathed and with more public support than Jay.

  25. truthful says:

    I want Jigga’s flag shirt so bad, (to wear in the fall w/a cute blazer) but my boobs would ruin in…that’s all I got.

    it hard to call it w/these two–time will tell, I truly cannot call it…
    who is to say this is not for more attention and then some “miraculous reuniting”

    I will be at the concert on Thursday w/my girls when they come to Chgo and I am trying to see Aerosmith on Friday–yoooohooooooo

  26. jammypants says:

    I don’t know why but I always imagine their marriage is a bit like Frank and Carrie Underwood.

  27. eliza says:

    This marriage, in my opinion, was a BIGGGGGGG business deal from the start. I never bought this “crazy in love” super couple that ruled the world. Things always seemed “off” with these two.

    I always feel for children AND family, friends who are dragged into these types of relationships. Goes to show how selfish and ego driven these two jerks are.

  28. word says:

    I can’t imagine seeing Beyonce with any other man since she’s been with Jay for so long. This should be interesting. She has started the process of getting her “IV” finger tattoo removed…wonder what’s really going on?

  29. Bubulle says:

    She needs to dump his sorry ass, she is a bigger star than him, she has nothing to lose IMO.

  30. Sumodo1 says:

    Bey and Jay MUST talk to the Clintons. They are the blueprint for “do your own thing marriage.”

  31. Molly says:

    I don’t think they will divorce…there is wayy too much involved in Bey and Jay financially to cut that out now. I do think they are having a rough go of it and even if i don’t care for either of them, I think they just need some time away from the world after a stressful tour.

    and i dont care how anyone feels about this but, I CANT WAIT FOR FIFTY SHADES OF GREY!
    there, I said it. mock me if you must.

  32. nima3 says:

    They are completely overrated.

  33. A says:

    She used to point to her parent’s relationship as a model. Her Dad was likely cheating for a while, but her Mom only kicked him out once the news of him impregnating another woman became public. I think B got herself into a similar type of relationship.

  34. Mrs McCubbins says:

    These two are like Jolie/Pitt……all brand!

    • Paige says:

      The second Jolie-Pitt comment on this thread. LOL. You know this how?
      I don’t believe anything Page Six writes but the rumors just keep coming up which would make anyone think something isn’t right in their relationship. Oh well, that’s their business.

  35. joan says:

    Of course they’ll eventually split.

  36. Leaflet says:

    I’ve never liked either of them due to their bad characters. Brace yourselves, believe the scenario will go down like this. I suspect they’ll drag their marriage out like Tina and Matthew Knowles did (secretly living separate lives). Then one day JayZ will end up choking on his own arrogance from pulling the classic and very public Matthew Knowles stunt: having an affair and producing an unwanted child by a baby mother, who will not just simply keep quiet, like a lot of irresponsible, unfaithful, and highly successful men do because he naively believes his reputation to be untouchable. Then, Beyoncé and JayZ will realize that they just can’t simply bully or pay peanuts to this future baby Moma and her illegitimate child—not this time; this baby Mona’s got gumption and is not scared to make trouble and will not be content with the bribe and the scraps Beyoncé and JayZ are offering, while they and Blue Ivy live like kings. The Beyonce will make an album about it –but only until then. I think that they are trying to avoid a public dispute and damaging each other in song because it would severely damage both their careers. JayZ needs Beyoncé to attract and hold the attention and profits of a mainstream audience. Beyoncé needs JayZ to help maintain her family status and street credibility. Either way, if Beyoncé ever wanted to trash JayZ through song, it would never be genuine because Beyoncé doesn’t really make her own songs. All she really does is change a few words in other people’s work and passes it off as her own. No, she is not the only one that does it, but she does. I think JayZ makes his own songs though.

    • Sozual says:

      Completely agree. She hires talented (as in kids will buy the music and adults that are brainwashed by their marketing campaign) songwriters to steal from, but her choreographers copy and paste dance moves. That has happened a few times. She and her people have also stolen clothing designs.

  37. Sozual says:

    Oh and i give the marriage more than three years and less than seven years. He will cheat on her out right, where she will have to leave him to save face. That is what I think. I don’t know if hes bored of her as in her superficiality or he’s just messed up from a corrupted lifestyle.

    • Leaflet says:

      @SOZUAL,
      I believe the media knows a lot more dirt than they have exposed but, mainstream media, not Hip hop media, had been holding it in, maybe because JayZ and Beyoncé hold weight in the industry. But Hip hop media didn’t care as much and have been exposing their facade before the elevator incident. The levels of dirt that Beyoncé and her parents have gone to to get make their wealth, stealing off the backs of others, disgusting. I never cared for Beyoncé after I saw what her and her parents did to the original Destiny Child Members and to the other young lady as well.

      • Sozual says:

        OH MY!!! I think her dad did all the dirty work, but let me know if the Mom was along for the ride or an active participant. Hit me with links…lol. I listen to music from other countries and see regular people with over 50,000 subscribers just cause they talk about a k-pop group. I am new k-pop fanatic. This whole top of the game, I am number one, or king/queen crap is over with. Anyone can be a star these days..pseudo or real, but madonna/janet/michael type fame is over with. Unless you are rolling deep (((like these k-pop groups with 6 – 12 members in one group where a person can choose between a bunch of good looking people. More people..more attention))), then that sort of fandom is over with. Beyonce and Jay-Z had that type of fandom, but again the way things are these days, (with celebrities over saturating the market, pseudo celebrity, or real notoriety that can happen with this thing called the internet) there time is coming to a close of obtuse startdom. Everyone’s stardom dies down, but these two can’t accept it.

  38. realtalk says:

    First I will say that every since the Solange/Jay z browl with Beyoncé bein still/quite rumors from all edges have been coming after Jay z/Beyoncé Carter in all forms to mainly get them to talk. Divorce/cheating and whatever the tabloids/blogs/media can come up with in hopes that Jay z/Beyoncé would talk. Remember this is a couple that have always been private and kept things to themselves so no, they will not come forward and discuss anything that is being printed or spoken about them, When they put out that one time comment about the fight that is all to be said about it from them. Not saying that maybe yes, their is some problems between the couple, but I do believe they will work things out and still not talk about it but you’ll see them out and about and it’ll be their way to shut up the media. Jay z/Beyoncé priority is that of their daughter Blue Ivy Carter and what is best for her ad their future child. Remember the Beyonce wasn’t never pregnant, well now in their OTR tour is concerts video of a clear pregnant Beyoncé with Jay z embraces her and even photo’s of the right after their daughter’s birth, now even to the haters that still aint enough but Jay/Bey continue to shut down the media your way.

  39. karen says:

    So much glee and joy in these comments over their relationship supposedly failing LOL the thirst is real. Anyways I’m not buying it. They’re a brand and a business. They’ve been together 12 + years and have a child. I’m sure they’re both doing their own thing (this is hollywood) but i actually believe they still like or even love each other and will stick their marriage out. And can someone finally explain how Solange beating Jay means he’s cheating on Beyonce? If we can find out a president got a bj in the oval office how in the world can’t we find all these women Jay Z is running around town with/fathering illegitimate children with? There is surely not enough money in the world to squash a story like that.

  40. K says:

    LOL. The conspiracy theories on this thread are crazier than MedioTakeOut’s.

    Bey and Jay are the most succesful couple in music and they’re gonna stay that way.

    +10000000000000000000000 @Karen

  41. Rudy says:

    This marriage has been fake from the beginning. Everyone bought the lie. Now after this tour together they will divorce, split it all and go on with their lives.

    In the meantime, my girl thinks Beyonce grew a baby in her belly and JayZ has some very questionable actions to account for. I’d like to think that Beyonce now gets her freedom, but I am a bit too cynical. Maybe she was afraid to say she could not get pregnant. And once she lied she had to go on lying.

    But that does NOT excuse her stealing songs. Neither one of these two have any integrity. Even JayZ’s lyrics are stolen lines from public verse. They are both great artists, but….they lie. And everyone up to the president bought in. To me they represent the sad state of american celebrity culture. Empty, no calories, no soul.

    • Sozual says:

      Yeah they are crooks.

      “To me they represent the sad state of american celebrity culture. Empty, no calories, no soul.”

        @SOZUAL & RUDY,
        I whole heatedly agree about them having no integrity and being empty. A die hard fan of the duo would counter that and say, “well they do charity”. No, that’s not the point. Just because someone does charity work, doesn’t make them a good person, case in point:Donald Sterling. In reality, Beyoncé is doing charity work with the song writers money that she stole through a legal technicality. Just because their not the only ones that do stuff like this, it doesn’t make it ok for them to do it. What I don’t deem acceptable about the Hip Hop and R&B genres, ranging from the late 90′s until now, is that almost anything goes and they are not held to any accountability at all by a lot of the fans. I’m glad that I have the decency and integrity to know abide by the principle that a honest hardworking laborer deserves his pay. ;) The ‘Queen of Facades’, I definitely agree. Haha, but then again, if she liked it, how come she didn’t keep her ring on it, haha. ;)

        I haven’t heard of a specified genre having crooks. I believe the issue of people stating someone stole a piece of writing or production, has really started to occur in dialogue with the public only recently. Last decade or so. Elvis stole a bunch of writings. Like I said though, this hero worship of celebs is fading out. TRUE CHARITY IS WHEN YOU ARE INCONVENIENCING YOURSELF. It is when you have a strict budget and say I can’t buy this cause I have to give the money to whoever. They, like many celebs, do enough to pat themselves on the back. Until you are building schools, offering people quality 50,000 houses, paying off school debt, participating in anything health related, and giving people business grants (employment opportunities ( YOU AREN’T DOING JACK) !!!

    Does a marriage get any better after something like what Beyoncé and Jay have been through? He’s cheated, allegedly, on her. They didn’t call Jay “Jigga” for anything back in the day! He earned that title! This rocky relationship probably won’t get any better. Man, we all saw how Beyoncé stepped out of that elevator; cool, calm, and collected. She’s the Queen of Facades. She’s like a robot. Jay will probably slip again and she’ll separate from him just to save face and not look like his rug.

    This marriage is wayyyyy over! Beyonce wants to be sexy and make Jay jealous but Jay Z has been busy having different women to ride his surf board.
