Jay Z And Beyonce's Tidal Staff Photo Outrages Twitter For Being "White Washed"

Posted on Fri May 29th, 2015 7:10am PDT       By X17 Staff

Maybe people should think before they tweet?

Jay Z and Beyonce got skewered via social media when they posted a staff photo with their team at their subscription-based music streaming service, Tidal. Uninformed critics couldn't help but comment on the "all white" staff beside the power couple. Quickly, the Internet was erupting, claiming that the super couple had "white washed" their staff -- only problem is Tidal was created by Norwegian steaming service Aspiro, which is based in Norway, where 97 percent of the population is -- white.

Isn't that kind of like going to Mexico and being upset that most of the people are hispanic?

After an initial soar in popularity due to the backing of some of music's biggest names, the streaming app's popularity dropped significantly through iStore rankings. After a disappointing beginning, we aren't sure that Tidal needed any more negative criticism -- but it got some anyway. We guess the golden couple doesn't always have the Midas touch ...

Meanwhile Bey is dusting off the criticism and having a fine old time in Florence, Italy. The hot mama brought Blue Ivy along with her to Italy to attend the wedding of billionaire financial consultant Noam Gottesman and Bianca Duenas.

Looks like the mother/daughter duo are getting some quality time together!


FIRST PHOTOS - Ben Affleck And Jennifer Garner Send The Message Their Marriage Is Solid

Posted on Thu May 28th, 2015 3:44pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Looks like the family's intact!

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are shutting down rumors of separation, divorce, marital trouble, whatever -- they're an intact family in a relationship that's still going strong! At least that's the message they seemed to be sending Thursday afternoon as Ben and Jen took Violet and Seraphina for frozen yogurt after school while son Sam stayed home.

Recent reports have said the pair have separated, while Jen films Nine Lives in Montreal and Ben stays home with the kids. But isn't that just for work and not because their marriage is on the rocks? Separated, physically, but it doesn't appear they're filing divorce papers. Still, gossip rag Radar is reporting their partnership is dunzo and that Ben and Jen are already fighting for custody in a divorce that should be announced before their ten-year wedding anniversary on June 29.

What do YOU think??

FIRST PHOTOS - Harrison Ford Pilots Helicopter After Recovering From March Plane Crash

Posted on Thu May 28th, 2015 12:18pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Harrison Ford is back in the saddle!

The Indiana Jones star hit the friendly skies Thursday morning for a helicopter flight to Catalina Island less than three months after suffering a serious plan crash.

Back on March 5, the aviation enthusiast crashed his vintage fighter plane onto Penmar Golf Course in Venice, Calif. after taking off from Santa Monica Airport -- the same private airport he took off from today. In that accident, Ford was found bleeding and had suffered multiple gashes to his head. Two doctors happened to be playing the course and rushed over to offer treatment to the actor until emergency personnel arrived. The 72-year-old was then transported to a nearby hospital.

Today, the actor took off with a co-pilot around noon, looking confident and happy to get back into the pilot's chair. Looks like the crash won't keep him away from doing what he loves!


Selena Gomez And Justin Bieber Caught Hanging Out!

She really does have a terminal case of Bieber fever!

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are the most on-off couple in Hollywood, and all signs point to them being ON again after this Snapchat video surfaced of the pair hanging out together with mutual pal and pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr.

Although you only see the "Come & Get It" singer for a brief second, and if you blink you might miss her, she is seen smiling and laughing in the background as The Biebs does a rap about God.

We guess poor Selena thinks JB might be done banging random girls. We give it two weeks before she's back to crying on Taylor Swift's shoulder and eating Ben & Jerrys.

If he was your boyfriend, he'd never let you go.... well, yes he will, until he's bored and his side chicks are busy!

Blac Chyna Continues Instagram War With Kylie Jenner

Posted on Thu May 28th, 2015 12:15pm PDT       By X17 Staff

It's all out feud of the nobodies!

Blac Chyna has been in an Instagram posting war with her ex Tyga's current girlfriend Kylie Jenner, and her latest photo seems to be an attempt to show the reality star that her boobs are superior! The single mother posed by a pool while showing off ample cleavage, and she had to know that her rival posted an almost identical pic just two days prior. Oh snap!

Blac Chyna is pretty savvy to keep this battle going since she's getting so much press from it, but her new boxer boyfriend J'Leon Love might not appreciate the fact she's so preoccupied with her former rapper beau and his love life!


Andrew Garfield Loses His Cool When Photographers Swarm Girlfriend Emma Stone

Posted on Thu May 28th, 2015 11:30am PDT       By X17 Staff

Calm down, Spiderman!

Andrew Garfield got all protective boyfriend with on-again girlfriend Emma Stone after a concert at the Troubadour last night, and it kind of made us love him even more than we already do! The British actor ran to get the car for his lady love after taking in the Sohn and Sophie performance, and when the Big Eyes actress was having trouble navigating her car through the sea of photographers, her man got out to direct the paparazzi out of the way.

When the shutterbugs wouldn't move, the action star hunk lost his temper! He got out of the car a total of three times before the couple were able to escape the chaos, and while it was quite chivalrous, shouldn't he be the one behind the wheel?

The pair briefly split last month, but it appears their romance has been rekindled! "Andrew has been incredibly busy and so has Emma. But the sparks are still there," a source dished to People.

We have a sneaky suspicion he's going to put a ring on it soon!


Kim Kardashian Dresses Nori In Baby Balmain For Ballet

Nori is tutu cute!

Kim Kardashian was up bright an early to take daughter North to ballet class in Calabasas today, and the reality star must have had her glam squad come over before the sun came up, because she was perfectly put together. Most moms shuttle their kids around in running shoes and leggings, but not Kimmy K. The brunette beauty donned a Metallica t-shirt, leather jacket, and heels!

Little North was joined by her cousin Penelope and aunt Kourtney, and the toddlers appeared to have a blast. We wonder who is better on the bar? If we asked Kanye, we have a feeling we'd know his answer!

The E! starlet has been struggling to give her little girl a sibling, and now there's all sorts of rumors flying around about how she plans to expand her family. Some outlets claim the 33-year-old has been undergoing IVF treatments in an effort to conceive, while OK! suggests that the couple are planning to adopt twins from Armenia! "Not many people realize that adopting kids was always part of Kanye’s plans with Kim. It’s part of the philanthropic profile he wants to build up for them," a source dished to the mag.

One thing's for sure - NW is an adorable ballerina!

Demi Lovato is one brave lady!

Hoping to put a face on mental illness, the singer has revealed she's been facing a serious issue -- bipolar disorder.

The 22-year-old is currently waging a campaign to combat the negative stigmas associated with mental health problems and is going public with her own battle.

"I have struggled with bipolar disorder for several years now," Lovato told People.

Demi's campagin is the Be Vocal: Speak Up for Mental Health. According to the website, the campaign, "is an initiative encouraging people across America to use their voice in support of mental health."

Lovato launched the initiative, which works with five different mental health groups, to help people who are afflicted by mental illness and give light to the issues that both society and people shove in the dark.

"I just think mental illness is something people need to learn more about," the "Heart Attack" singer told People. "I want people to know it's ok to ask for help and it's ok to have a mental illness."

Way to go!
