As she graced the red carpet at the Met Gala, Kim Kardashian’s outfit was immensely compared to Beyoncé’s 2012 Met Gala look. Whilst some suspected that the singer was behind the inspiration, it was rather another artist to influence the look.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashian star wore a white shimmering gown which had a flowing feathered train by Peter Dundas. Beyoncé’s similar gown was a black and purple design by Givenchy.

It was Cher who was behind the inspiration of the Roberto Cavalli outfit. Posting a photo of a young Cher in 1974 wearing a feathered, sheer white and nude gown, Kim captioned it writing: “Tonight’s inspiration! Cher at the 1st ever Met Gala! I just met her and told her this photo was my inspiration for my dress tonight! She is so beautiful! So happy I met her!”

She then posted a picture posing with the pop icon. She wrote: “This beauty, this icon! I’m so so happy I met her!!!! We spoke about our amazing Armenian journeys! And that Bob Mackie gown she wore to the Met 1974”

Woman Creates Petition To Get Beyoncé And Jay Z To Comb Their Daughter Blue Ivy’s Hair


A New York woman has created a petition against musicians Jay Z and Beyoncé for what she says is not taking good care of their daughter, Blue Ivy’s hair. The alleged creator of the online petition on has been identified as Jasmine Toliver.

On the petition page which has been entitled ‘Comb Her Hair’, Toliver claims that Blue Ivy has developed ‘lint balls’ and ‘matted dreadlocks’ in her hair due to improper care.

She wrote on the petition page: “As a woman who understands the importance of hair care. It’s disturbing to watch a child suffering from the lack of hair moisture. The parents of Blue Ivy. Sean Carter A.K.A Jay-Z and Beyoncé has failed at numerous attempts of doing Blue Ivy Hair.”

Since the creation the petition has garnered over 3,000 signatures and despite criticism its creator apparently took to her Facebook page to defend herself, downplaying it as a ‘joke’.

Toliver wrote: “My joke took off anything I guess with ‘sign a petition’ is funny. If I would’ve said ‘sign a petition to save Lebron James hairline’ that would’ve took off (too)! It’s a clever joke! Nobody came up with before.”

She continued. “My hair (looks) like blue ivy right now except its moisturized and detangled.”

“Yes I’m natural! Have a seat to most people. I can care less about Beyoncé or (Jay Z) but I do care for the kids hair. People make nothing out of something. I love being black! I’m proud my bloodline runs from Africa. I’m proud of my own tightly coiled kinks. I’m proud of my big lips and brown skin. People just need to (breathe) and chill out.”

Several natural hair experts have been less then entertained to Toliver’s ‘joke’ of an explanation. Stylist and owner of Hair Rules salon Anthony Dicket said: “That’s insane to think that her hair, as a child – a toddler – is supposed to fit into a standard of beauty, that’s acceptable for who? That’s the big question. Who cares? We’re talking about a child here, and we’re going to now implement a standard of beauty for children?”

“She’s a child with natural hair — what texture other than natural would you expect a child to be?”

Dickey added: “I think she’s a pretty little girl. She doesn’t have naturally straight hair, she has natural curly hair, and it has the right and free will to go in any direction that it chooses, and to think it should do anything else – you would be suggesting a standard of beauty that is supposed to be imposed on a toddler, and that’s insane.”

The petition appears to have started after photos emerged online of the two – year – old’s hair looking a little wild whilst she was in the Hamptons with her parents over the weekend.


Beyoncé Sacks General Manager?


According to reports, Beyoncé is believed to have sacked her general manager, Live Nation Executive Faisal Durrani.

The Daily Mirror reports the singer has decided to become her own boss with the help of husband and rapper Jay Z although he doesn’t hold an official professional position as part of her career.

Durrani is one of numerous managers that Beyoncé has dismissed over the years, including her father Mathew Knowles, whom she sacked in 2011 after he managed the star for 21 years.

Beyoncé became the president of Parkwood Entertainment; an entertainment and management company that she had set up in 2008.

An insider told the Daily Mirror: “Jay has been heavily involved in Beyoncé’s career for years, and was instrumental in organising the Mrs Carter Show World Tour. But he isn’t officially regarded as her manager – she really is independent.”

The insider continued that the couple, who wed in 2008 and have a two – year – old daughter Blue Ivy, want to start putting family life first.

The insider added: “Now the couple have Blue, she wants to make sure her family come first at all times, especially as there’s talk of them adding to the brood.

“The best way to do that is to make sure all managerial decisions are made by her and her husband – together.”

A representative for the Drunk In Love hitmaker insisted Jay Z isn’t “involved in her management”, stating that she has been in control herself for four years.

They explained, saying: ”Beyoncé has managed herself since 2010 under her company Parkwood Entertainment.

”Faisal Durrani worked for her as general manager for a very short time. Jay Z is not involved in her management.”

Diplo said that his suggestions “haven’t made the final cut”, as the record were negated, as the singer is allegedly working on a new collection of songs for her forthcoming album.

The producer told newspaper The Sun: “I just did two songs for her new album, well, I tried. I think she scrapped the record.”

He continued: “The record was supposed to be done and they have been hitting me up for brand new ideas.

“I like to work from scratch, [but] sometimes I get called in to fix records.”

The producer revealed the plan that the singer is reworking on her album just days after Beyonce’s husband and rapper Jay-Z said that fans will be receiving a treat with the upcoming LP.

Jay-Z told Hot 97’s Angie Martinez: “Right now, Bey has 100,000 amazing songs, just playing ’em.”

When Angie grilled Hova on what the power couple get up to when they preview their tracks, he joked: “Yeah, [we] dance to it in our socks.”

MTV Europe Music Awards 2009 - Show

Jay- Z is gearing up to release his forthcoming album Magna Carta Holy Grail on July 4, exclusively through a new Samsung App. The rapper spoke about his personal experiences that have influenced the material on his new album.

Posting a teaser advert, the rapper talked about a single entitled Jay-Z Blue saying that it was undeniably inspired by daughter Blue Ivy Carter.Wife and singer Beyoncé gave birth to the couple’s first child on January 7 2012.

Talking to Rick Rubin in the album clip Jay-Z admits: “[She’s] something that we both created; we still marvel at her.”

In another clip he talks more about his daughter’s influence on another track entitled Heaven, which he says can be located in his daughter’s laughter. The rapper also described the feeling of his child going missing for just three minutes.

The 43-year-old revealed how difficult his childhood was which has left him with lasting doubt over his father credentials.

He explained: “My pop left when I was young, so he didn’t teach me how to be a man, nor how to raise child, or treat women. So, of course, my karma, the two things I need, I don’t have. And I have a daughter. It’s the paranoia of not being a great dad.”

Besides his influence from daughter Blue Ivy, Jay -Z’s album features several collaborations including
Justin Timberlake, Frank Ocean and of course Beyoncé herself.

Beyonce And Jay – Z To Collaborate For His Album


Rapper Jay –Z and singer Beyonce Knowles are said to be reportedly to be recording a duet together for Jay’ new album which has been entitled Magna Carta Holy Grail.

Lyrics in the single contain a deeper portrayal of what was being understood at the revelation of their relationship.

Lyrics in the song go as: “She fell in love with the bad guy, the bad guy. What you doing with them rap guys, them rap guys, they ain’t see potential in me girl, but you see it if it’s you and me against the world, then so be it.”

Jay-Z posted the words to the single on his new mobile application. The album will be released July 4, followed by a global release on all other platforms for July 7.



Beyonce Settles $100 Million Law Suit With Video Game Company?



Back in December 2011, Beyonce was hit with a lawsuit from Gate Five after she walked out on a deal, for a new motion-capture dance game entitled Starpower: Beyonce, which she had negotiated with them after a disagreement.

Gate Five executives were claiming that the singer had put 70 staff member to lose their jobs, costing the company to lose $7 million that they had used to invest into the project and with a projected $100 million in possible profits from the video game.

Beyoncé’s legal team then applied to have the lawsuit to be thrown out of court at the Manhattan Supreme Court in New York, but Judge Charles Ramos rejected the appeal and gave Gate Five permission to move forward with the lawsuit.

It now appears that Beyonce has reached an agreement with the video game company after the $100 million lawsuit was filed against her.

The New York Post obtained the filed papers from the Manhattan Supreme Court and stated that both sides signed an agreement dismissing “all claims or counterclaims”.

“We’ve settled amicably,” revealed Gate Five lawyer Peter Gallagher. “I can’t discuss the terms of the settlement, but it was resolved.”

“I envisioned what my child would look like.. I was feeling very maternal.”

It was in the early stages of her pregnancy that she had lost the baby.

She says: “I flew back to New York to get my check up – and no heartbeat.

“Literally the week before I went to the doctor, everything was fine, but there was no heartbeat.”

The star then turned to music to get through the pain of losing her child.

Referring to the untitled song that she had wrote, she says: “I went into the studio and wrote the saddest song I’ve ever written in my life.

“And it was actually the first song I wrote for my album. And it was the best form of therapy for me, because it was the saddest thing I’ve ever been through.”

Talking about being pregnant with her daughter Blue Ivy, she says: “Being pregnant was very much like falling in love.
