Jay Z Visits With Kanye West, Kim Kardashian And Baby Nori

Jay Z, who has now dropped the hyphen from his name, was spotted leaving lunch at Gjelina in Venice on Sunday after visiting with Kanye West, Kim Kardashian and their six-week-old daughter North West at Kris Jenner's Calabasas pad.

And apparently this isn't the first time the rapper stopped by say hi to little North West, who has yet to make her first public appearance. Earlier this month Jay and wife Beyonce Knowles were reportedly among the first non-family members to see the little girl, and they spoiled her with thousands of dollars worth of gifts.

Baby Nori made out like a bandit with personalized Christian Dior baby booties and a three-piece sterling silver Elsa Peretti Padova, and they apparently gifted her with a $14,000 Swarovski crystal-studded high chair at her shower last month.

Beyonce And Jay Z Rally In Honor Of Trayvon Martin

Jul 21, 2013 11:25 AM


Beyonce and Jay Z attended a rally in honor of Trayvon Martin Saturday in New York City.

The singers met with Rev. Al Sharpton and Trayvon's mother, Sybrina Fulton, yesterday at the event. The rally was organized on the heels of George Zimmerman's acquittal last week.

George, a neighborhood watch volunteer, shot and killed Trayvon, who was unarmed, in self defense when the teen assaulted him last year. The tragic event reignited an ongoing national debate about racial profiling. George was found not guilty of second-degree murder during his July 13 sentencing.

Al Sharpton gave a shout-out to the couple during his speech. "Jay Z and Beyonce said they didn't want to speak and they didn't come for a photo op," he said. "Beyonce put a beautiful message up on Instagram. Let me tell you, that before a lot of you were down, Jay Z always supported us."

The Instagram post was a black photo captioned "#justicefortrayvon."

"Jay Z told me, 'I'm a father. Beyonce is a mother.' We all feel the pain and apprehension -- the laws must protect everybody, or it doesn't protect anybody," Al continued. "We do not come from hate, we come from love of children."

The duo has been very vocal about the tragedy. Jay Z and Justin Timberlake dedicated a rendition of "Forever Young" to Trayvon during their Friday night concert at Yankee Stadium. "This is for Trayvon so light up your cell phones New York!," Jay yelled. Bey acted similarly a week earlier, asking the crowd to participate in a moment of silence before singing "I Will Always Love You" and "Halo" during her July 13 concert, which started after the verdict was announced.

Jay-Z made a surprise appearance at Pace Gallery in Manhattan, and the rapper reportedly performed “Picasso Baby,” for a group of lucky fans for six straight hours while cameras rolled. The footage will be used for the track’s music video, and those lucky enough to be on the guest list included various members of the art and media community and a few folks with 40/40 club membership.

Entertainment Weekly chatted with a few of the dancers at the shoot, and they didn’t even know that they were working on a Jay-Z video until earlier in the day. Judd Apatow, Girls star Adam Driver and rapper Wale were among those at Pace yesterday afternoon, and several Vine and YouTube videos have popped up online, including the one below:

Jay-Z, Miley Cyrus, And Britney Spears Talk Twerking On Twitter

Jul 10, 2013 11:35 AM


Jay-Z, Miley Cyrus, and Britney Spears are musicians you normally wouldn't associate with one another, but the singers recently had a Twitter love fest.

The usually social media shy rapper took to Twitter to answer hundreds of fan questions on Monday. Jay talked twerking, his favorite Britney tune, and breakfast cereal during the Q&A session. Jigga really needs to follow Snoop Lion's lead and consider doing a Reddit AMA.

The 17-time Grammy winner's song "Somewhere in America" off his newly released album Magna Carta Holy Grail references Miley and her love of twerking. "Feds still lurking, they see I'm still putting work in/ Cause somewhere in America Miley Cyrus is still twerkin' ha!"

When a follower asked, "Do you really think Miley is still twerking somewhere in America?" he wrote, "Yes! she is an old worlds worst nightmare. Black neighbor, and the daughter not seeing color." When another fan asked if he thought the booty-poppin' dance would replace the electric slide at wedding receptions, he replied "Personally??? YES.. Miley is a GOD."

Cyrus took Jay-Z's backhanded compliment with gratitude.

Mr. Beyonce also shared the love with Britney Spears, saying that "Toxic" was his favorite Brit-Brit jam. Britney, of course, was elated by the news.

Coincidentally, Miley and Britney recently tweeted back and forth about twerking. Brit asked the "We Can't Stop" singer for some pointers.

Jay-Z Mocks Miley Cyrus And Her Twerking Skills In New Tune

Jul 5, 2013 12:50 PM


Jay-Z has already gotten plenty of attention for her upcoming album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, so is it really necessary to drop Miley Cyrus' name and make fun of her twerking skills? In the song "Somewhereinamerica," Jay-Z raps:

    When I was talking Instagram
    Last thing you wanted was your picture snapped
    Feds still lurking
    They see I'm still putting work in
    Cause somewhereinamerica
    Miley Cyrus is still twerkin', ha!
    Twerk, twerk, twerk, twerk
    Twerk, Miley, Miley, twerk
    Twerk, Twerk, Miley, Miley, Miley, twerk
    Twerk, yeah, uh-huh
    Twerk, Miley, Miley, Miley
    Only in America

And not only that, but on the song "Clown," Jay-Z takes a much bigger swipe at sports agent Scott Boras, who used to manage New York Yankees star Robinson Cano. Cano is now signed with Jay's management company. "Scott Boras, you over baby - Robinson Cano, you coming with me," he taunts.

We do love Jay-Z's music, but don't mess with our Miley unless you're planning on doing a collaboration with her!

After local N.Y.C. radio station Hot 97 reached out to Jay-Z to congratulate the rapper on the widely reported pregnancy of his wife Beyonce, the "Watch the Throne" lyricist sent an e-mail back to clear up any remaining false speculation that Bey is with child!

"I hit him to say congratulations, send my love to the fam," program director Ebro Darden explained of the e-mail exchange, to which the hop hop mogul responded, "it's not true," Darden revealed.

For her part, Beyonce has been hinting on Twitter that the baby rumors are completely false, so it looks as if Blue Ivy will be the only kid in the Carter household for the time being!
