The Celebrity couple Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z Split?

Beyonce Oscars

According to MediaTakeOut.com in an exclusive interview with one of Jay Z’s "friends" - who spoke to them on the condition of anonymity - it was revealed that the loved Celebrity couple Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z have split after a 5 year relationship. The reason was quite obvious, Hip-Hop mogul Jay-Z (38 years old) wanted, for some time now, to settle down and have a family while Beyonce (and her family) did not. Apparently they remain good friends, they are very much in love - as the insider reveals - and things could get back on track. Hopefully we will soon have an official statement about whether is true or not.

[Jay Z]’s not 25 - he’s been ready to settle down and have a family for a while now. But Beyonce was asking him for more time. It got to the point where [Jay Z] was constantly pressuring her and it wasn’t good for the relationship … So they both decided that it would be best if they just stayed as friends.

Beyonce’s family was completely against her getting married. They’re cool with [Jay Z] and all … they just felt that he was a little too serious for her at this point in her life. And at this point in her career.

They still love each other and they’re still good friends so you can’t expect them to just cut things off completely … For now, it’s over. But who knows what might happen in a couple of months.

Beyonce on the cover Sports Illustrated Swimsuit

Beyonce Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover

The R&B Celebrity Beyonce is now among the celebrities who have posed for Sports Illustrated’s annual swimsuit magazine as a cover model and the second African-American along with Tyra Banks. Beyonce's photos was taken on a beach in Florida wearing a yellow and pink bikini by House of Dereon, designed by mom Tina Knowles. This year, Sports Illustrated asked musicians like Gnarls Barkley, Kanye West, Kenny Chesney, and the guys in Panic! At The Disco to pose in swimsuits for the Sports Illustrated issue.

Reports say that Beyonce revealed she had a hard time deciding about doing swimsuit covers refusing offers until now. It seems that she didn't want to do a shoot that would make her look less than classy : "I wanted to make sure that when I did one [a swimsuit layout], it's really classy and that I can look back at it years from now and show my kids. I can say 'see momma was beautiful. Look how good I looked!' [...] I'm a really shy person."

Beyonce and Shakira duet

Shakira and Beyonce

It's official, R&B Celebrity Beyonce has collaborated with Pop-Latin Celebrity Shakira on a new song for the Spanish-language re-release of her B’Day album. Beyonce revealed to MTV that she always loved Shakira, and the track 'Beautiful Liar' tells the story of two women who stick together in front of a double player man. I really hope the duet turns up to be a worldwide hit because the two are very talented singers; the reissue of 'B'Day' will also come with a DVD featuring five new videos.
In other Celebrity news, Beyonce will give style and a sexy look to Jay-Z's basketball franchise by designing new outfits. Jay-Z is a part-owner of NBA team the New Jersey Net while Beyonce and her mother TINA have the House of Dereon fashion line together.

I've always loved her and I've always wanted to work with her and the song fits perfectly. It basically talks about two women. The same guy is trying to get at both of them but instead of them fighting, they're saying, 'He's a beautiful liar, let's not fight, let's stick together - forget him!' I think it's a great concept. Before becoming a global superstar as a solo artist and acclaimed actress, Beyoncé was the lead singer of Destiny's Child.

Petition to re-shoot Deja Vu video for Beyonce label


The R&B celebrity Beyonce Knowles will probably have to re-shoot her newest video for the single ‘Deja Vu’, the first single from the R&B singer’s upcoming album ‘B’Day’. It seems like Colombia Records - Beyonce’s label - received a petition signed by more the 3000 people in which, the fans ask for the re-shoot of R&B singer’s newest video ‘Deja Vu’.

According to this petition, the new video of the R&B celebrity should be taken off the air due to ‘poor editing and unacceptable interactions between Beyonce and her boyfriend Jay-Z’. The petition also mentions that the video is ‘an under-whelming representation of the talent and quality of previous music video projects of Ms. Knowles’ and that it has ‘no clear story or theme’.

In other celebrity news, Beyonce new album is now available on Apple’s iTunes, although it hasn’t been released yet, while rumors says her boyfriend hip-hop celebrity Jay-Z is planning a comeback album, an album which is set to be released in November.

The Celebrity of February: Beyonce Knowles

Beyonce Grammy

The R&B singer Beyonce, who was our Celebrity of November 2005, is now also the Celebrity of February because of her recent film Pink Panter and the upcoming movie Dreamgirls. However, last month the R&B star also caught the attention with her fashion range - House of Dereon. The R&B celebrity Beyonce Knowles reportedly received many hate mails for selling animal fur in her fashion range. The letters came thanks to Beyonce's label Dereon which started selling clothes made of rabbit and chinchilla fur - and teddy bears made of mink.

In present, Beyonce Knowles is focusing on her role in the upcoming movie "Dreamgirls" and her music career will have to wait, but not that much as the R&B celebrity revealed she is going to work on her next album after she ends up filming. That being said Beyonce wants to release her next solo album this summer due to her busy movie schedule. Beyonce's new album will be the follow-up of "Dangerously in Love," debut album.

Beyonce plans an album in summer


The R&B celebrity Beyonce Knowles wants to release her next solo album this summer even though she has a busy movie schedule. Beyonce's Hollywood career has taken off, and because of it the singer has only six weeks to record the album.

The beautiful Beyonce, who is currently shooting Dreamgirls, considers that she is not facing a problem as she had done it before. The movie, which is based on the Broadway musical about a trio of black female soul singers who cross over to the pop charts in the early 1960's, could be the film of Beyonce's movie career, if all goes right. Beyonce first film was the smash hit Austin Powers In Goldmember and now The Pink Panther remake with Steve Martin.

I'm going to try and do an album after the movie. I want to put the album out in the summer, which means I have six weeks to record it after the movie (is completed). But I've done that with just about every album, so we'll see if it happens again.
- said R&B celebrity Beyonce -

Meanwhile, this news of a new album came as a surprise to us as we all thought Beyonce will take an one year break from music field. The singer's album will be her second as Beyonce had already released an R&B album - named Dangerously In Love - when she was still a Destiny's Child member. I wonder if Beyonce upcoming album will have at least the same success or even greater then the first solo album.

In present Beyonce's "Check On It" featuring Slim Thug reach up its fourth week on top of Billboard Hot 100 and Pop 100 singles charts Thursday, the single is part of the 'Pink Panther's soundtrack.
