Matthew Knowles Calls Divorce Rumors A "Jedi Mind Trick" While Beyonce Calls Blue Ivy Her "Muse"

Posted on Fri Aug 29th, 2014 7:00am PDT       By X17 Staff


Sounds like a lot is going on in their household!

In a stunning turn of events, Beyonce's father Matthew Knowles has come out to claim that the elevator incident with Solange, along with the divorce rumors surrounding his daughter and Jay-Z, are all a Jedi mind trick. Huh?

"I know, from experience, because we've done this, there's a tour going on," Bey's dad said in an interview with The Roula and Ryan Show on 104.1 in Houston on Thursday. "So you have to sometimes ignite that tour -- it's called a Jedi mind trick! The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot of time."

When it came to Solange and the infamous elevator fight, he simply repeated, "All I know is the Jedi mind trick," in regards to whether or not they knew they were being recorded. "Everybody's talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange's album sales went up 200 percent."

Things appeared pretty serene when Bey, Jay and baby Blue were at the 2014 MTV VMA Awards earlier this week. As for Queen Bey, she hasn't had time to indulge in her father's claims but rather spend her time focused on her little girl.

The 32-year-old entertainer opted for a poem entitled Bey The Light as opposed to an interview to go with her spread for Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book, expressing the fondness she has for her daughter.

“It’s my daughter, she’s my biggest muse,” she wrote. “There’s someone we all find out soon, more important than ourselves to lose." She also added a bit about how she wants people to perceive her talents.

"You call me a singer, but I’m called to transform, to suck up the grief, anxiety, and loss of those who hear me into my song’s form.”

Sounds like Blue has given her career an additional spark she never knew she had!


Kendall And Kylie Jenner Strut Their Stuff In NYC

They look ready to take on the town!

On Thursday, Kendall and Kylie Jenner donned their darkest attire while out and about in New York City and get this... they were without the rest of the fam!

The two young Kardashian clan members were in town to celebrate their joint DuJour magazine cover at Lavo in Midtown Manhattan, the latest accomplishment for the budding models.

Kendall has been on fire lately, having scored her first Teen Vogue cover after gigs with Marc Jacobs, Givenchy, and Balmain. The statuesque 18-year-old went in-depth on her strides in the fashion industry and what her family association means for it all.

"What a lot of people don’t know is that being in the industry I'm in with my family doesn't benefit me at all," she told DuJour. "It actually makes it harder for me to break in because I had to work a little bit harder for people to take me seriously and show them that I really want it."

Seems like her hard work is paying off. As for the dropping of her last name for more modeling gigs, looks like that's a tactic to make a name for herself!

Britney Spears Confirms Split With David Lucado

Posted on Thu Aug 28th, 2014 9:00pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Guess it was true after all!

After we had previously reported , Britney Spears and David Lucado have called it quits and the pop star confirmed recent events with a simple tweet!

"Ahhhh the single life!" the 32-year-old singer posted to her Twitter account earlier today to further cement all speculation.

The two have been together since around March of last year, shortly after calling off her engagement to Jason Trawick. "I'm in love," Spears told Entertainment Tonight around that time. "I like the fact that he's very stubborn and he's stuck in his ways. He's just a simple man. I adore him."

There have been rumors of Lucado cheating on Brit which helped make her decision easier, although nothing has been brought to light besides the fact that she's enjoying being free with her family!


Kim Kardashian's Booty Is So Big It Needs Its Own Zip Code

Posted on Thu Aug 28th, 2014 12:10pm PDT       By X17 Staff

This never ceases to amaze us!

Kim Kardashian hit the gym on Wednesday, and rather than hitting the shower immediately after her workout, the reality TV star ran some errands in Calabasas, showcasing her giant booty in a pair of black spandex. She looked fantastic, but we still can't believe how she's built. I mean, this almost makes Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" album cover look like amateur hour...

While Kim has been busy shooting interviews for Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons and going to events for her line of sunless tanning creams, she has yet to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, despite nominations from a number of celebs. We're waiting, Kimmy!

Miley Cyrus Gets Nude For Karl Lagerfeld

Miley Cyrus is taking it all off for Karl Lagerfeld!

The twerktastic singer dared to bare everything for a V magazine's Rebel issue. Shot by Chanel's head honcho, the 21-year-old is featured on the cover of the mag wearing a plush turquoise swimsuit, amid a sea of stuffed animals. But of course the combo of Miley and Karl couldn't just stop there -- the "Wrecking Ball" singer also got totally naked for the spread. We'd expect nothing less!

Fresh off her headline-making VMA stunt in which she brought a homeless man as her date, the "We Can't Stop" singer was obviously proud of her goods and Instagramed a promo pic of the upcoming issue with the caption, "shot by Karl Lagerfeld for @vmagazine #rebelissue."

We can't blame her -- she does look damn fine!

The glossy mag doesn't hit newsstands for Sept. 10. Sorry boys and girls, still gotta wait to get your hands on Miley!


EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS - Kaley Cuoco Might Have Stolen Justin Bieber's Fav Pair Of Drop Crotch Jeans

Posted on Thu Aug 28th, 2014 11:10am PDT       By X17 Staff

Not to mention his hair from late 2011!

On Wednesday afternoon Kaley Cuoco gassed up her shiny black Range Rover in Studio City, and from her cropped locks to the baggy boyfriend jeans, she wasn't exactly going for the flirty femme look. But you know what? Setting aside the questionable choice in denim and the scowl in her face, she seems like one of the more down-to-earth celebs out there.

Sure, she now makes a whopping $1 MILLION per episode for her role on The Big Bang Theory, but earlier this year she admitted to reading gossip blogs AND getting a boob job, so she's kinda just like every other girl in L.A. Er, right? Either way, we'd totally be nice to to the 28-year-old actress if we ever ran into her at Coffee Bean. That is, if she didn't dump her latte on us first...


Shakira Pregnant With Second Child

Posted on Thu Aug 28th, 2014 10:45am PDT       By X17 Staff

Shakira, 37, and boyfriend Gerard Pique, 27, are expecting their second child together!

After rumors started swirling last month that the Colombian singer was pregnant, she confirmed the news to the Spanish edition of Cosmopolitan.

“If it wasn’t for the World Cup, my son Milan would not be here,” she told The Associated Press last month, referencing the fact that she met the soccer star at the tournament in 2010. In January 2013 they welcomed son Milan, and but earlier this year she chatted with Latina and revealed that she's not in a rush to get married.

"We’re just living other moments right now, like having Milan," she said. "The last thing we can think of is planning a wedding. Before we finish elaborating on that thought we have to change the next diaper."

It was a family affair!

By now, the whole world knows that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie tied the knot this past Saturday, but now we're getting the intimate details from the wedding of the year!

The couple's children played a large role in the ceremony, with sons Maddox and Pax walking the actress down the aisle and daughters Zahara and Vivienne stepping in as flower girls. Shiloh and Knox were the ring bearers! One person who was not included in the nuptials and had no idea they took place? Angie's dad John Voight! Inside Edition asked the veteran actor about his daughter getting hitched and he was completely caught off guard before quipping, "That's nice."

It sounds like just how Brangelina wanted it!
