99 Problems?



I didn't pay too much attention to this salacious gossip the first time I saw this bit of news but damn....its everywhere right now so I'll do my duty and report it to you.

Its about Rihanna, Jay-Z and Beyonce. We all know its been rumoured for ages that Riri and Jigga got jiggy with it. My jury's still out on that one. Maybe, maybe not. I don't think she needed to, but maybe she wanted to. He's probably smart enough to be more discreet, maybe not. But truth be told, I don't care.








Right. So most of you probably know Rihanna and Jay-Z won the Grammy for best rap collaboration. So Rihanna's name gets called, she runs up to Jay-Z (who is sitting next to Beyonce and Solange) and grabs his hand and walks up to the stage. As they get to the stage, he visibly shakes her hand off and she throws her hands in the air in a real lover's tiff WTF way. Watch the clip (let me know if it doesn't work). He's noticeably stand offish which is odd as he's all over the track so he could have just gone with the moment and nobody would have anything to say. But then again, maybe Jay "I'm a pimp by blodd" Z was having horrific images of what he was going to have to deal with later from B, Solo and the big bad boogeyman that is Papa Knowles.

Apparently, THE most priceless moment of all this was Solange's face. We all know B is a tad robotic and expression free after being worked on so thoroughly by her Dad. Obviously Solange wasn't privy to this as her face is still capable of expressing emotions. The Knowles are a tad ghetto but looks like Solange got more than her fair share of that helping as her face was a picture! A picture that said "Bee-yotch, No. You. Didn’t."

Hear about the car crash Riri was in too, she's unhurt but damn. See what bad belly can do!!!


For the non-Nigerian readers, Bad Belly (pronounced bad bel-le) is a super strong, poisonous, toxic, virulent, vitriolic, potent strain of bad vibes, or shooting daggers...and it carries the bonus of ill wishes and malice on the recipient. (any readers feel free to elaborate on that one!)



Supercute in her royal blue Zac Posen dress



Beyonce's dress is a little Starlight Express but she loooks gorgeous and its definitely some redemption from the yellow monster above!

I THINK WE LIKE MAY WERE POSTING THIS. IT WAS SO WEIRD, SOLANGE, LOL WAS LIKE I WILL CUT THAT B----. SORRY I DIDN'T MEAN TO GO THERE BUT HER EXPRESSION SAID THAT.

SET said...

LOL, I AM BACK SINCE I LEFT OUT THE FACT THAT BEYONCE'S YELLOW DRESS REMINDS ME OF IVANA TRUMP THEM IN THE 80S. WHY MAN AND THE FAIRYTALE ELIE SAAB DRESS DIDN'T CUT IT EAITHER. SHE IS TOO BEAUTIFUL BUT IT DOESN'T HELP HER STYLE TO THE FULLEST.

This must have been an awkward moment for Bee cause clearly judging from that icy smile on her face when Rihanna went to hug Jigga and haul him off to grab the award...Poor child!If the rumours are true about them she got to truly move on or if she decides to remain with Jigga step up her game(Bee that is)cause Rihanna will give her a hard time.The little girl is so sexy!And Beyonce is a beautiful girl no doubt but her style sucks!!!That accident musta been truly as a result of bad belle!!!lol

I don't think Jay-Z has a thing for Rihanna. I think it is just a rumor.

Tiger Tem said...

Well we're all in agreement about Beyonce's lack of style! And we all seem to agree it looked a little awkward when Riri grabbed J. As to whether anything's really going on....my guess is only two people really know. Maybe three.

SET said...

3 OF THEM AND JAY'S BEST FRIEND TYTY, LOL

This Jay Z, Beyonce, Rihanna case is becoming something else.
I thought i heard that Jay Z had broken up with B.
I guess I don't get good information this days.
Rihanna definitely wouldn't wanna have Jay Z in public.

DAVID said...

The yellow dress is better than the blue, imo.

Rihanna's dress was super cute too!

Tiger Tem said...

@Oracle...aren't they getting married this summer?

@David, def agree on Rihanna's dress! I'd wear that...

Okay I know everyone has their own OPINION on this topic but hell i watched that video and i am HELL PRESSED to see solange's so called "FACE" or jay z's lover's tiff like wtf?...it is A case of people seeing what they want to see...cus i SAW absolutely nothing both during the show and also whilst rewatching it...so thats my own take on that..Frankly i think its crazy..


and NO i do not agree that beyonce ha no style...her shoe and bag game are on point and i reallly like her casual style...she always looks very well put together and sophisticated and frankly its a polished look...no, she is not edgy like rihanna or FORCED like victoria beckham (whose style i think is so contrived its almost disgusting) - infact there is new buzz on that crappy kathy holmes who i believe should light candles in honor of her stylist ...same goes for rihanna new (yeah right) style...beyonce's style is ...well beyonce...and yes uggh i hate mama tina's influences but BUT when bee goes out on her own she always looks FLY and i included a couple of looks (both red carpet and casual) you should check out, before you make ringing statements that beyonce has no style, you definitely need to do some more research, WHEW** ok i am done and on that note, great post!
BSTAN for life!

Beyonce's ice blue dress is not Zac Posen. It is an Elie Saab!!!
