T Mag Men’s Issue: Jay-Z Cover Story

JayBlueIvy 540x410 T Mag Mens Issue: Jay Z Cover Story

In a cover story, British author Zadie Smith sits down to eat with Jay-Z and interviews him for T magazine’s men’s issue for autumn. We learn he’s a fan of “chicken parm,” and also that he realizes that for four-month-old daughter, Blue Ivy, growing up in TriBeCa rather than Bed Stuy will create a very different set of demands. According to the article:

At the last minute, I remembered to ask after his family, “Oh, my family’s amazing.” And the baby? “She’s four months.” Marcy raised me, and whether right or wrong/Streets gave me all I write in the song. But what will TriBeCa give Blue? “I actually thought about that more before she was born. Once she got here I’ve been in shock until maybe last week?” Her childhood won’t be like his, and this fact he takes in his stride. “We would fight each other. My brother would beat me up,” he says, but it was all in preparation for the outside. “I was going to have to fight, I was going to have to go through some things, and they were preparing me.” He smiles: “She doesn’t have to be tough. She has to love herself, she has to know who she is, she has to be respectful, and be a moral person.” It’s a new day.

Video: Beyonce ‘I Was Here’ Aka The Wedding Dress Video

18 November 2011, 18.03 | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 comment »


During a live performance of the song “I Was Here,” Beyonce shows a video highlighting big moments in her life and includes some quick looks at the dress she wore when she wedded Sean Carter in 2008. Some other moments include her performing with Michael Jackson, Prince, Tina Turner, not to mention rubbing shoulders with Nelson Mandela and Oprah but somehow my fave spots are her interactions with that husband of hers–such a cute couple, can’t help but hope that it all works out.

On the next page see a screen grab of the dress via Thecut who tells us the dress was designed by Beyonce’s mother, Tina Knowles.  Read more

Vic’s Secret: Backstage

VCHeidi Vics Secret: Backstage

Much ado was made about Victoria’s Secret fashion show at the end of last week. It hadn’t been done for a few seasons and the idea is that its reemergence is some sign of optimism. The show was okay. You can can tell the brand is trying to be more Viki, aka, playful and modern, and less Victoria. I’m not NOT a fan (bought some adorable panties at a VS store a couple weeks back), but I thought the show was just okay. Still, there was some great people watching as always at the show. I picked Heidi for the front page shot because I thought she look amazing (check out her finger accessories!), though when I saw she was quoted at the show as still needing to lose 20 pounds I couldn’t help but feel dismayed and a little disappointed. Oh Heidi. Still think she’s a peach.

After the jump: Keri Hilson looking super fab and shaking hands with Mr. Knowles, plus two daughters whose mothers’ fame precedes them: Chanel Iman and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld.

Barack X Jay-Z “Brush Your Shoulders Off” Video Mash-Up

18 April 2008, 21.58 | Posted in Uncategorized | No comments »

This blog is so far off the rails in terms of what’s its content is supposed be today that I figured I’d just pile on with this video, in which Jay’s “Dirt Off Your Shoulders” song is mashed up with clips from the campaign, including Barack’s speech yesterday when he channels Mr. Carter and literally brushes his shoulders off.
