The Carters are drunk in love. Beyoncé and Jay Z have squashed the breakup rumors once and for all by reportedly renewing their vows.
According to People, the superstar couple, who celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary in April, recently renewed their vows.
“They did have major problems,” a source told the magazine. “But they worked it out and they’ve renewed their vows.”
Over the summer, there were rampant rumors that the couple was headed fordivorce. While their relationship has had its ups and downs, “they worked it out for [the sake of] their reputations and for [their 2-year-old daughter] Blue Ivy.”
The two were spotted house hunting in Paris over the past month. They’ve toured a villa near the Seine, a home in a gated community known as “Millionaire’s Row,” and a townhouse next to the Elysee Palace.
They shared their love for the City of Light during their “On the Run Tour” last month. “We love Paris,” Jay Z told the audience during the final two shows. “It’s special to us because we got engaged here, and this is where Blue Ivy was conceived.”
The couple recently shared photos from their family trip to the Louvre andFrieze Art Fair, and is reportedly in the studio working on a joint album to be released later this year or in early 2015.
Tyga’s fallout with Young Money is getting uglier. The Last Kings rapper has called out his labelmate Drake for being “fake.”
Earlier this month, Tyga took to Twitter and accused Young Money of holding him hostage. He threatened to leave the label if they didn’t give him a release date for The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty. After his tweets, Young Money president Mack Maine fired back and Nicki Minaj unfollowed him on Twitter.
But trouble has been brewing for some time now. “I’m tryna go independent,” Tyga recently told VIBE. “I don’t really get along with Drake. I don’t really get along with Nicki.”
“I don’t like Drake as a person. He’s just fake to me,” he continued. “I like his music; you know what I’m saying? I think his music is good, but we’re all different people. We were forced together and it was kinda like we were forcing relationships together. It is what it is.”
Lil Wayne was the glue holding the relationship together. “I think being signed to Young Money, everybody felt like they had to force a relationship ’cause Wayne put us together,” he said. “At the end of the day the reason why I signed to Young Money is because of Wayne. Not because of Drake, not because of Nicki. It was because of Wayne and my relationship with him. I try to be cool with everybody, but sometimes, everybody just has different personalities, motives, and different characters. When you realize that, you realize that’s not a place where you want to continue to grow.”
Someone who he is friends with is Chris Brown. “That’s my real genuine friend. We hang out all the time. He lives up the street from me, so we don’t just do music, we hang.”
He will join Chris and Trey Songz on their upcoming joint tour, and is collaborating with Chris on the Fan of a Fan 2 album. “We are going on tour soon, but me and Chris’ album might not drop [this year]. It’s supposed to drop Christmas, but if it doesn’t I think Valentine’s Day is cool too. We gotta figure out what’s best and the right plan, but all the music is there.”
In the interview, Tyga also denied that he is dating Kylie Jenner and addressed his breakup with baby mama Blac Chyna. The couple has a two-year-old son named King together.
“We decided to take a break apart ’cause you don’t wanna raise an emotionally unstable child, and that’s what it comes down to,” he said. “It wasn’t my happiness, and it wasn’t her happiness. It was for the sake of King.”
Tyga is moving ahead with The Gold Album—with or without Young Money—and has tapped Kanye West as executive producer. “I get inspired being around ‘Ye. At the end of the day, it’s [about] finding what you’re great at.”
With his new album Paperwork in stores today, T.I. handles his business in the cinematic video for his Mars-produced anthem “King.”
The Hustle Gang chief shows off his acting chops and his gangster swagger as he goes to meet with a business associate in a seedy bar. But when he’s threatened, Tip grabs his gun and singlehandedly shoots up the place before calmly exiting the building.
Lesson learned: Don’t mess with the King.
Who says you can’t go home again? It’s obvious that particular saying means nothing to LeBron James, who made the shocking announcement in July that he was returning to his home state of Cleveland to play for his former team the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Since the announcement, the 29-year-old NBA player has been in a handful of commercials, the latest for Beats by Dre’s wireless headphones. In the newly released ad, you can see shots of Akron, Ohio, where James grew up, and hear his mother speak of how proud she is of him, and how happy she is that he’s coming back home.
“This is the city that raised you,” she says. “I’m so proud of you. Welcome home son,” as Hozier’s ‘Take Me to Church’ plays in the background.
The footage also shows the basketball phenom returning to his former high school and visiting the school gym, where he stands at the free-throw line, stares at the basket and reflects. From there, you can see James vigorously working out, while using a pair of red Dre headphones.
The black-and-white footage, sentimental music and shots of the inner city makes the ad look and feel similar to the Gatorade commercial centered on Derek Jeter’s retirement that aired last month.
The Cleveland Cavaliers’ first game of the regular 2014 season will be on Oct. 30 against the New York Knicks.
Puma is taking it back to the old school days of hip-hop. The heritage brand has dug into their archives for their just-released “Throwbacks” collection that should appeal to the b-boy in you.
The capsule features clothing inspired by the golden days of hip-hop when b-boys and b-girls adopted Puma as their style of choice.
Some of the pieces include oversized a bucket hat, hoodies, jackets, T-shirts, sweatpants and crewnecks all branded with the Puma name and the “form strike-through” logo. The collection also offers two new colorways of the Trinomic XT1 + sneakers.
But lets keep it real, if you really want to keep it old school, we recommend that you cop some Puma suede kicks and really get your b-boy on.
The Puma “Throwbacks” Collection is available at Urban Outfitters and ASOS, which has the entire line.
There will be peace, love, and Breezy at the Soul Train Awards. Chris Brown has been announced as one of the first performers for this year’s show.
The R&B superstar leads the pack with seven nominations including Best R&B/Soul Male Artist, Song of the Year for “Loyal,” and Video of the Year for “New Flame.”
In addition to Brown, the legendary Jodeci will reunite to perform a medley of hits and a snippet of “Nobody Wins,” the group’s first single in nearly a decade. The North Carolina quartet, which includes brothers Cedric “K-Ci” and Joel “JoJo” Hailey, as well as Dalvin “Mr. Dalvin” and Donald “DeVante Swing” DeGrate, has not performed together in the U.S. since 2006.
“Soul Train was a critical platform in the beginning of our career, so it only makes sense that our return to the stage be during Soul Train Awards 2014,” Jodeci told Yahoo! Music. “We’re humbled by the loyalty of our fans who have asked for a reunion and look forward to giving them a show as only Jodeci can. #JODECIforever.”
Jeremih, Aloe Blacc, and Nico & Vinz will also take the stage to perform their hits, along with Lisa Stansfield and Kem and Liv Warfield.
Trey Songz, Boris Kodjoe, Laila Ali, and Wolf Blitzer will present, while Wendy Williams hosts the show at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas on November 7.
The Soul Train Awards 2014 airs on Centric and BET on November 30 at 8 p.m.
