Beyonce & Jay-Z had a romantic yachting ‘date night’ but she didn’t want his kisses


As far as celebrities trying to be fake-accessible online, Beyonce is not the best and not the worst. Bey’s online presence is hyper-managed and “curated,” just like everything else in her life – she only shows us what she wants us to see. That used to annoy me, but now I appreciate it more. Bey has been taking time off this year, obviously to have her babies and recuperate. In the past few weeks, she’s been stepping out more and more, going to Broadway shows and fundraisers and that sort of thing. She’s also been posting more to her Instagram and website.

These photos are from her website,, where she posted a bunch of “date night” photos of a recent yacht trip she took with her husband. She’s the one calling it a “date night” – that’s the name of the photo spread she carefully curated for us. I just thought you would enjoy. I was struck by the photo of Jay-Z kissing Bey while he’s obviously got a cigar going. I don’t mind the smell of cigars at all – I think most good-quality cigars have a pleasant smell, actually. But don’t you think Beyonce’s body language in that photo shows that she’s actually not a fan of kissing her husband when he smells and tastes of cigars? Just my opinion, she’s not into it.

What else is going on in Bey-Z world? There were reports that they would be headlining a major concert to raise money for hurricane relief, but when they were contacted about it, they released this statement: “Tidal will be hosting our annual benefit concert with details to soon follow. We have not announced or confirmed any line up or partner organizations, but stay tuned. . .” I think that means they will be headlining a benefit, but it will be through Tidal? Speaking of Tidal, apparently Jay-Z and Kanye West are going to have some kind of “summit” to hash out their many beefs with each other. One of those beefs was about Tidal and how much money Jay promised Ye.

    I know lips can swell during pregnancy, but I guess it remains afterwards too?

  2. Mimi says:

    She seems over him.

    • V4Real says:

      Nah, she’s just not a fan of kissing her husband period.

    • Sarah says:

      What V4Real said. Look at her body language. Her left arm is hanging down.
      The day Beyonce finds someone who sweeps her off her feet, it’s Byebye Jay Z! She is so not into him.

    • Jenny says:

      Mimi: Who would ever want to be UNDER him? You bet she’s over that gross dude. BTW, can’t stand either of those two. And I’ll never understand what she ever saw in him. She doesn’t even need his money.

  3. Imqrious2 says:

    Posers gonna pose. When are these open mouthed pictures going to stop (looking at you Bey, JLo…)? It is not sexy!

  4. GingerCrunch says:

    I seriously love that outta focus pic. Reminds me of my youth (pre-social media).

  5. Kate says:

    A summit? It’s not Israel-Palestine, just pick up the phone and have a conversation dumbasses. Jeez…

  6. Honey says:

    I don’t think they’ve ever looked madly in love with each other, and in this picture , she looks like she wants nothing to do with him. Kissing someone who’s smoking cigarettes or cigars isn’t appealing to me and maybe Beyonce doesn’t like it either

  7. jenna says:

    She changed her shirt during boat ride date night?

    • OOOHH! says:

      They’re both wearing different outfits, so seems they arrived in one, chilled, then refreshed themselves for dinner. I don’t think that like other everyday folk they arrive dressed, they probably have a private suite booked as well.

      I always remember to separate their lifestyle and thinking from the everyday lifestyle and thinking. And by “their”, I mean the really really rich folk.

  8. OOOHH! says:

    Beyonce looks so beautiful and almost younger than before she had the twins. First of all, “…but she doesn’t want his kisses” made me lol. I absolutely love the first picture of Jay Z kissing her, the way her left hand sits lazily by her side says “…all these Beckys want him so bad, but me, I’m like meh *shrugs*” lol.

    I have a lot of respect for both Jay and Beyonce as individuals and as a couple. Hollywood is a nasty business, worse if you’re a woman, more so if you’re black, a paid full struggle if you’re black and a woman. I can’t imagine the walls she would have had to break through to be successful as a black woman. A lot of people speak negatively about her control over herself, but I am yet to see or hear of a powerfully successful woman who did not have to almost militant in her ways to protect herself from exploitation, abuse (physical and mental) fraud etc. Just cause she made it and is visible to us makes her easy as a target, yet we empathise with those who didn’t like Ke$ha.

    I have no problems whatsoever with the Carters, may they live long happily and prosper.

  9. @BitingPanda says:

    I can’t imagine how exhausting it must be to keep your life in such a way that you need an official photographer for “Date Night”.

    • Kimble says:

      I was just going to post the same thing! I never take a photographer on date night lol

      • OOOHH! says:

        But you’re not them though, why would you compare your way of life to theirs? They are in a business and world where this sort of thing “is a thing” so why should it matter to you. Everyday people blog and vlog their lives away now because people love being able to look back and feel the nostalgia of “that day/time/event”. Just cos its not your cup of tea shouldn’t reflect negatively on someone else.

  10. Izzie the other says:

    Here before everyone dumps their insecurities on B and accuses her of being the worst humAlan being alive today before Mr. Cheeto!
    She looks fantasitic, and not just for a new mom, in general.
    Oh and btw, Beyonce has never had thin lips.. she’s a black woman!

    • Jess says:

      This! @ everything you said.

    • V4Real says:

      Her lips were never that big. Stop using the excuse because she’s a Black woman. Not every Black woman has big or full lips. Those lips make her less attractive.

      Sign Black woman without big lips.

      • Mma says:

        The pictures here are not clear. On the clear ones, you can clearly see over lined lips. Her lips blew up during pregnancy and maybe she loved it better like that.
        This is also funny because Beyoncé always had full lips and I remember when someone on this site claimed she had them deflated to look like a white woman

      • I'm getting a root canal on Monday says:

        @v4real those lips do not make her “less attractive”-
        Signed offended big lipped black woman who was teased all her life for being ugly & too black because of her big lips.

      • HadToChangeMyName says:

        I have big (natural) lips (Black woman here) and hers do not look natural. They were the first things that jumped out at me , simply because her lips weren’t like that before.

      • V4Real says:

        @I’m getting root canal. I was not discussing your lips but Beyonce’s. Let’s not make this about you cupcake. And Bey does look less attractive with those lips because they are not natural.

      • OOOHH! says:

        So much fuss over her lips. For a woman who has achieved so much in her life where many have failed, suffered abuse and breakdowns, the meltdown happening/ that happens on this site whenever there is a Beyoncé post is astonishing.

        I don’t understand the accusatory tones about her lips. So what if they’re fillers, why is that strange? Why is it so enjoyable to find something negative to say about her in every post? There’s got to be more to it? Its almost as if there’s some resentment to her level of success and to the fact that she doesn’t make herself available to the media for gossip.

        Whatever it is, like someone else posted, it seems there’s a lot of insecurity circulating. Hard to believe cosmetic procedure to lips of a 30+ year old independent woman would cause so much aggravation.

    • Nicole Savannah, GA says:

      Wow. Not all black women have full lips. That is just. No.

    • OOOHH! says:

      Mega lolz, save for 3 or 4 posters so far, every other comment is dumping on her for getting lip fillers or dumping on her marriage. We know its not perfect, she knows its not perfect, her babies aren’t even 4 months yet and the slings are out. She certainly causes a lot of unrest amongst many.

      I think she’s done very well for herself in life, better than anyone could imagine. I admire her ethic and determination, am very inspired by what she says about her work ethic in Lemonade.

  11. MommyMaura says:

    I’m hoping that it’s photoshop but that the second picture… she got something done to her nose.
    I love Bey.
    ( PS. This is the only comment you’ll ever see me discussing anyone’s body on this site)

    • V4Real says:

      Bey had a nose job years ago.

    • Mma says:

      I don’t think she did anything to her nose honestly. The Superbowl photos were just bad ones combined with heavy contouring. Stage makeup is funny as hell. Or maybe she found a way to reset her nose back to normal after the Superbowl… We’ll never know. But given that some people believe that she was never pregnant and that the surrogate as the one that gave birth and they quickly switched babies and the hospital fact covered it up because they were paid off I dunno. You’ll find anything if you look hard enough.
      And the collage I posted stopped at 2015 so here is one from 2017
      She has been posting pictures with minimal makeup so you can see them on her Instagram and not judge the size of her lips from one she’s pouting in

  12. JEM says:

    I need those sunglasses in my life!

  13. Mma says:

    Uhmm, of you head over to her Instagram you’d see that her lips are normal just over lined. The pictures posted here are not clear and there are pictures of her bareface where you can also see her nose is the same and has always been. Posting pictures of different angles while she’s performing and breathing heavily does not count as proof please. Also I’m sure the picture with jayz is just that- a picture. I hand over my phone to people to take pictures of me like I’m sure we all do so let’s not act like there’s anything vain about Beyoncé having pictures of her date night or even having less than 2000 pictures on her 6 years old Instagram.

  14. Boodiba says:

    I know I’m in the minority but nothing about this woman, or her relationship, impresses me.

    • Nicole Savannah, GA says:

      I 100% agree. I call her Beyawnce.

      • Izzie the other says:

        So you claim not to care about someone but have the time and energy to give her an (unoriginal) name??? Stop playing yourself. If you don’t care about someone, you totally ignore them. Not only do you care, but you’re a fan! And we know only the BIGGEST Beyonce fans actually call her BEyawnCE!!

      • NicoleinSavannah,GA says:

        Blah blah blah. I felt like posting after a stressful week. Pretty sure I have the right to do that. Called her that since she sang at the Oscars. Not a lot to say, sorry. Now if I was a big fan, I hope I’d have a quite original name! I will say that the sunglasses and shirt are cute. That’s all I have. I am sorry I have no mean or bitter words to feed you. Too much hate and anger around me to retaliate.

      • V4Real says:

        Because this is a gossip site where posters are allowed to sing praises of the celebs they like and talk crap about the ones they don’t like. If this was her fan page or Instagram then you would be on point but it’s not so chill out and let people give their opinions the same way you give yours.

        Why do you care so much that she doesn’t care about Beyonce?

    • BorderMollie says:

      I like her well enough, but really, really dislike JayZ. I think I’d like her a lot more if she wasn’t with him.

      • minx says:

        yeah, she could do better.

      • magnoliarose says:

        No, I don’t like him either.
        I don’t know what it is about his looks, but I find him very unattractive. If was a great guy I would say he isn’t cute, but since he isn’t, he is revolting. I tend not to like anti-semitic people.
        She could do a lot better.

    • Sarah says:

      I think she is beautiful, and an excellent dancer. Mediocre singer. But an amazing marketer and she knows her brand, and she promotes the heck out of it! As someone trying to get a jewelry line started, I envy her talent. It is not easy at all to get, and stay, at the top of the game she is playing in.

      • Lady D says:

        I think she’s beautiful too, always have. I’m not seeing a problem with her lips, I think she looks stunning in that picture with those to-die-for sunglasses. I admire her drive, brains and her ability to keep going no matter who. I don’t admire her husband.

  15. VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

    IMO, it looks like she’s trying to pose/look cute/sultry while getting kissed. Not that she’s not into it/her husband, in general. She’s just more concerned with posing for the pic.

  16. Erinn says:

    I saw a candid photo from a wedding my husband and I were at recently. If looks could kill, the people around me would be dead. I have a moderate case of resting b–ch face, and if caught off guard, or zoned out, or bored, or whatever, I can look pretty annoyed. Still love my husband, though.

    Overall, I don’t see much sense in commenting on body language in photos and things of that nature. It’s a snap of a second in time, and that’s it. It doesn’t speak to the health of a couple, it doesn’t give any real context or detail other than what someone looked like at the second the photo was captured.

    • Kate says:

      Would you choose that particular picture to put on your own social media though? Because this isn’t a pap pic, this is a pic Beyoncé purposefully chose to represent her ‘date night’. Whatever it captured is what she wanted to share.

      • magnoliarose says:

        I think the same as you do. She does that but I wonder what it is. There is nothing romantic or sexy or tender, ?

  17. Shannon says:

    Probably the cigar but idk. She looks great, hope they had fun, I have zero problem with this family. I honestly find them kind of adorable and root for them to make it.
