Leave it to Queen Bey to bring a random karaoke experience to royal levels. Beyoné, Jay Z, Michelle Williams, Kelly Rowland and Timbaland surprised patrons of the Miami karaoke bar Sing Sing in the early morning hours of January 8.

At around 12:15 am the all-star A-list singing posse decided to have some fun with the club’s customers before they had their own karaoke fun.

“Beyoncé asked me where the music that was playing [in a separate room] was coming from,” Sing Sing owner Kellie Pilicer told Us Weekly. “And I said ‘Oh don’t worry, it won’t bother you.’ And she said, ‘No, I want to see who is singing my song.’”

Three girls in a nearby room had been singing Beyonce’s 2011 hit, “Party.” They didn’t recognize Beyoncé, Williams and Rowland when they entered their room to join their party.

“Beyoncé and Michelle started singing and dancing with them,” Pilicer continued. “They were also videotaping the whole thing. These girls had no idea it was them for the first couple of minutes. It was cute.”

That must have been one fun night. Go Beyoncé!

Khloe K and Lamar Odom Avoid Each Other at Jay Z Show

Apparently even the vibrant music of Jay Z isn’t enough to bring Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom back together. The estranged married couple attended Hova’s concert in Los Angeles separately.

The NBA free agent could be spotted in a private box at the Staples Center, while his soon-to-be ex was seen in separate area, wearing an slinky all-black ensemble. Observers noticed that the pair had no communication whatsoever during the night.

This chilly reception seems a far cry from just a few months ago when the pair were seen checking out relative-to-be Kanye West’s concert together. Looks the embattled duo are setting up things separately for the New Year.

Alicia Keys: Jay-Z Didn’t Like It When My Son Kissed Blue Ivy

Jay-Z is already an overprotective daddy when it comes to his one and only Blue Ivy Carter, according to pal Alicia Keys.

The “Girl on Fire” singer stopped by the Wendy Williams Show this week to talk about her upcoming tour, and her son Egypt’s crush on little Blue. Keys reveals that Egypt, 2, tried to kiss one-year-old Blue during a recent playdate. “I don’t think Jay liked it very much. He told my husband, ‘Um, watch your son.’”

The thought of Egypt laying a wet one on Blue Ivy is just too much cuteness to bear, but the love doesn’t stop with the little ones. After the world aww-ed over a clip of Beyoncé and Jay-Z singing Coldplay’s “Yellow” to each other, Keys revealed a sentimental moment of her own.

When asked what was the best present she ever got from her hubby Swizz Beatz, she said, “this might sound strange but I think the favorite gift he ever got me [was] he got a tattoo of me on his arm. Of my face. He hid it. It’s so beautiful. He mixed it with some of his favorite artists…It’s so pretty.”

Can these people get any more cute/beautiful/romantic/perfect?

Beyoncé Boots Reality Show Cameras From NYC Nightclub

Beyoncé may be loosening the reigns on her ultra-private personal life by flooding her Tumblr page with intimate family pics, but she’s not ready to see herself in a reality show just yet.

The new mom reportedly demanded that cameras for Oxygen’s reality series Girlfriend Confidential: NY leave the midtown nightclub where she was meant to have a date night with Jay-Z and refused to enter the club before the crew had departed.

“Beyoncé came to meet Jay-Z around midnight, but sat outside while she was told about the show. She demanded production be shut down while she entered the club,” an eyewitness reported.

Hear that, Kim Kardashian? You may have ensnared Kanye West into your made-for-TV world, but keep those cameras away from Bey.

It’s entirely possible Blue Ivy’s momma is saving the good stuff for her upcoming autobiographical documentary, which she is currently pitching to studios. The proposed film will out-class reality TV and instead be screened in movie theaters.

A life as large as Bey’s deserves a big screen, don’t you think?

Jay-Z Reveals His Celebrity Crush

He may be married to the hottest chick in the game, but is Jay-Z lusting after another celebrity bombshell?

A little birdie told a certain magazine that Jay once had eyes for another public figure. Here are a few hints:

1) She’s the star of six classic Black films from the 1990s.

2) She made an appearance in one of Kanye’s music videos.

3) If Jay wanted to see her on the regular, he could just sign her man to his Brooklyn Nets.

And, the correct answer is…Nia Long! Now, before everyone starts tweeting about Jay leaving Queen Bey and all that nonsense, this is a perfectly innocent crush and Jay was apparently speaking for all the boys from the ‘hood when he talked about his love for Nia.

In fact, Long herself revealed the juicy tidbit to Essence magazine, when she recounted meeting Jay at a social function recently:

“I saw him at a party and I complimented him on his long run in music,” Long told Essence. “But he turned it around and asked me: ‘How does it feel to be every boy from the hood’s fantasy girlfriend for 20 years?’ It made me laugh, I hadn’t really thought about it.”

And while Nia may be the object of much affection, these days she’s enjoying life with one man, her boo Ime Udoka and their infant son. Still, must be nice to know that after two decades and two kids, you still got it!

Beyoncé Parties with Kim Kardashian, Fans Feel Betrayed

Published by Natasha Fierce on Tuesday, June 26, 2012 at 9:08 am.

Kim Kardashian seems to have finally achieved her goal of cracking into Beyoncé’s inner circle. The two were spotted laughing and dancing together at Jay-Z and Kanye West’s concert in Birmingham, UK. A concert-goer (we’d bet a million dollars we know who) snapped pictures them looking too cozy for our comfort and fed them to

Who knows what kind of horse trading Kris Jenner had to do to pull this one off, or if the Kardashian clans recent sit-down with Oprah Winfrey lent Kim enough credibility to be seen with Queen Bey, but we’d like this unholy union to stop. Now, please.

Bey’s fans agree. “Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian in the same picture let alone the same sentence is tragic,” one fan tweeted, while another wrote, “if your role model is Kim Kardashian, I can’t take you seriously, Beyoncé is a way better role model. She’s respectful of herself.”

Radar has an “insider” source (president of Bey’s fan club?) who says, “Kim Kardashian is not the sort of girlfriend that Beyoncé fans envision the new mother having.” Another tells Radar, “Beyoncé has an air of class and sophistication to her, while Kim is famous because of a sex tape and a failed marriage.”

We know Bey has been on a lettuce-only diet so maybe the malnutrition has gotten to her, but please, our our sake, eat a steak and put your house back in order girl!

Rihanna Headed to Rehab?

Published by Natasha Fierce on Wednesday, June 13, 2012 at 10:00 am.

Is Rihanna’s party girl lifestyle finally catching up with her? After months of speculation that she may have finally hit the wall, various tabloids are reporting that Ri’s close friends, including el jefe Jay-Z, are ready to stage an intervention to get her into rehab.

“Rihanna has been out of control for months,” an insider told Closer magazine. “She was supposed to catch a flight back to the UK last week [for a work obligation], but she ended up missing it, which was the final straw for management. Jay-Z hit the roof when he found out, and told Rihanna, ‘Go to rehab now or I’ll drop you from the label.’”

In a separate report from Look magazine, a source said the singer has “reached breaking point.”

“Ri says she’s physically and mentally exhausted and feeling lost,” the source said. “I think she desperately needs help and some time off — not just from work but from all the other stresses in her life too.”

Rihanna does seem to be burning both ends of the candle (with the occasional help of an IV drip to recharge her batteries) but is substance abuse the issue here, or does the pop diva need a 12-step program to help her deal with her compulsive Twitter disorder and her addiction to stripping near-naked at first sight of a camera?

Jay-Z States the Obvious: “Blue Ivy Will Be Spoiled”

Published by Natasha Fierce on Tuesday, May 8, 2012 at 8:53 am.


Jay-Z dropped in on Oprah’s Master Class: Special Edition recently to talk about being a first-time dad, and he shared his parenting strategy with Oprah Winfrey.

“I imagine I’ll take things I learned from my mom and things I’ve learned from raising my nephews and apply that,” he reveals, then adds, “Then at the end of the day, I just know I’ll probably have the worst, spoiled little kid ever.”

Probably? Is the Earth round? Between this, this and this, hip hop’s First Daughter was born into the .001% of babies, and the heiress to Daddy Jay’s record label, basketball team and property empire will unlikely ever see an empty wallet in her life. Even mom Beyoncé had to resort to cutting her own hair to bankroll Blue’s expensive taste. Not that we’re jealous of an eight-month-old baby who owns more Prada than we do.

But despite the charmed life he’s able to show his baby girl, Daddy Jay still worries she’ll turn on him as a teen. “Everyone imagines they’ll be a great dad until their [kids are] teenagers,” he says with a laugh. “[They say], ‘Get away from me, Dad. You’re embarrassing me.’ ”

Yeah, that’ll happen.

Well, we don’t care how spoiled B.I.C. is as long as she puts that damn Suri Cruise in her place. Go get yours, girl.

Oprah’s Master Class: Special Edition airs Sunday on OWN at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

Kim Kardashian is the Square Peg Trying to Fit Into Beyoncé’s Inner Circle

Ever since Kim Kardashian starting dating spending all her time with Kanye West, have you been waiting to see them brunching and partying in NYC with Jay-Z and Beyoncé? Don’t hold your breath.

Heat magazine is reporting that Bey has “wasted no time in banning Kim from being invited into their inner circle, which is exclusive to say the least.”

Apparently, super-private Bey isn’t keen on keeping company with someone who lives her life on camera. “Beyoncé doesn’t want the kind of celebrity that Kim Kardashian has nailed down as her own thing,” a source tells “Beyoncé doesn’t want to bring that reality show infamy and drama into a personal life that Beyoncé has tried to keep close to her.”

Think that sounds harsh? Here’s what else this “source” has to say about a potential Kim-Bey friendship: “Beyoncé is used to hanging out with Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow- she’s in a totally different league.”

Okay, ouch. We’re not always Team Kardashian over here, but even we can’t help but notice how crazy in love Kanye has been looking with Kim on his arm. That’s not to say the relationship will last (we have higher hopes for Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart, at this point).

“Bey thought Kim’s TV wedding was really tacky,” the source revealed. “Don’t plan on seeing Kim and Beyoncé being buddy-buddy as she continues her thing with him,” adds another insider. “Allowing Kim Kardashian into the mix is only seen as a distraction.”

Well, at least she has ‘Melo and LaLa.

Newsflash: Kim Kardashian is No Beyoncé

Published by Natasha Fierce on Tuesday, April 17, 2012 at 1:48 am.

Kanye West is dialing back his very public romance with Kim Kardashian just a bit. The rapper is denying a recent report that he’s so sprung on the reality star that he’s referring to her as (gag) his “Beyoncé.”

Yeezy tells Us Weekly, “…of course there are a lot of media inaccuracies surrounding this past couple of weeks, especially the ‘She’s my Beyonce’ quote. I would never compare anyone to my friend’s wife.”

“Come on now, that doesn’t even sound like me,” he adds. “If I don’t say something in a rap or on Twitter, it’s not true.”

There’s no need to point out the 1.1 million ways Kim is nothing like our Bey (that would be a little bit cruel, don’t ya think?), but we’re glad Jay-Z laid the smack down Kanye distanced himself from the ridiculous comment, which already has it’s own SNL spoof.

Meanwhile, Kardashian is reaching for the throne…er, the key to the city of Glendale by declaring she’s planning her bid for mayor of the Los Angeles suburb. She’s totally serious, y’all, so get those lawn signs and campaign buttons ready!
