Some people on social media are body-shaming a pregnant Beyoncé for wearing a low-cut dress. In the 59th annual Grammys telecast on Feb. 12, Beyoncé — who is heavily pregnant with twins — performed in a scene-stealing, goddess-like number that hugged her growing baby bump. In a post to Facebook, Kelly Rowland — Beyoncé’s longtime friend and former Destiny’s Child partner — posted a celebratory candid shot in which Queen Bey and members of her inner circle, including husband Jay Z, are happily grooving to the music at a Grammys after-party.
This week, Beyonce took to Instagram to announce that she’s pregnant with twins and released the most insanely pretty underwater-themed pregnancy photos we’ve ever seen on her website — think “The Little Mermaid” meets Goddess. While posing in underwear and a wedding-like veil draping, Queen Bey wrote to her 92 million plus Instagram followers (in what is now the most liked Instagram photo ever, no big deal): “We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. – The Carters.”

Beyoncé, Jay Z, Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, and Rihanna have come together to sue the retailer for “brazenly” selling merchandise featuring their likenesses without permission. The complaint, filed in New York federal court on Tuesday, purports that the Paris-based brand has ignored repeated warnings from the singers to stop sales of T-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, phone cases, and more on its website and brick-and-mortar in Manhattan.
Today Beyoncé turned the ripe ol’ age of 34, but it might as well been her 40th or 50th with the way the world has reacted. Michelle Obama thanked her for being a role model in a tweet and Gwyneth Paltrow posted the picture above where she is splayed out on a carpet next to GP’s daughter Apple. Meanwhile the September Vogue cover star’s family and closest friends collaborated on a playlist together. While Jay Z chose “Yellow” by Coldplay (bringing it back to Paltrow & co) because it “reminds him of going on vacation” with his wife, baby girl Blue Ivy opted for the song that shared her name, “Blue,” from The Little Mermaid.
Beyonce’s bootylicious and flawless—she’s told us. She’s also told us that she “woke up like this.” Not that anyone believed that, but on Monday’s Good Morning America, the songstress opened up about how she really maintains that svelte, red carpet ready physique. “This is something I have to share with everyone,” Beyonce said.

Jay Z, Beyoncé & Co. Want You to Take Tidal Seriously In a Lucious Lyon-esque power play, Jay Z called a meeting of the minds today on behalf of his new venture, Tidal—a music streaming service that he picked up from Swedish company Aspiro for a cool $56 million back in September. After announcing that the business movement was “revolutionary” and “going to reestablish the value of music,” Roc Nation CIO Vania Schlogel welcomed Alicia Keys, Win Butler and Régine Chassagne from Arcade Fire, Beyoncé, Daft Punk, Jack White, Jason Aldean, J. Cole, Jay Z, Kanye West, Deadmau5, Madonna, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, and Usher to the stage.
