As the summer has passed, we have heard continuous rumors about Beyoncé and Jay Z getting a divorce. Fans became surprised when they began their On The Run tour, but following the beginning of the tour; happened the famous elevator incident. Making fans believe the rumors even more.
But according to Radar Online, Mathew Knowles (Beyoncé’s father) says that it was all a staged trick. Although he and Beyoncé haven’t had the best relationship for the last few years, he claims that things are fine between them and that he still speaks with his daughter.
“We still talk every Sunday. She’s still the humble, generous person that she’s always been,” said Knowles. Although they currently have a good relationship, things may begin to get rocky again when she hears what he had to say about their elevator incident.
Mathew then added that Beyoncé and Jay used that drama to get people engaged in the On The Run tour. “I know because we have done this. From experience, there’s a tour going on. So sometimes you have to ignite that tour. It’s called a Jedi Mind trick. The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot,” he stated.
He also added that the elevator video helped ticket sales go up. Knowles also mentioned that the incident helped Solange’s album sales go up 200%!
So there you have it guys -although it may not be a surprise to many after watching the VMA’s. What do you think about this?
Two nights before the VMA’s Chris Brown hosted a pre-party in Los Angeles, gunshots were fired inside the celebrity-filled Sunset Strip Party.
A total of three people were injured, two men and a woman. Including former rapper, Marion “Suge” Knight –who was shot six times.
Chris Brown then posted a tweet after the incident saying, “It’s disappointing that we as a society can’t have fun or enjoy ourselves without any altercations sometimes. Miss me with the bulls**t!!”
This wasn’t Knight’s first time being shot at a pre-VMA party. In 2005 the former rapper was shot in the leg at a party hosted by Kanye West in Miami.
At first, it was thought that Chris Brown was the target, but at investigators reviewed footage they say that it is clear that Suge Knight was the intended target.
Chris Brown –who is still on probation for his 2009 assult on ex-girlfriend Rihanna- still hasn’t spoken to the LAPD.
Do you think they were purposely aiming at Suge Knight? Or could it have just been a coincidence? What’s your opinion?

If you have been keeping up with the Michael Brown shooting which happened in Ferguson, Missouri, you will find interest in this.
In the wake of the shooting, The Game has recruited a group of 10 rappers and four R&B artists. As they come together they protest on a musical Molotov “Don’t Shoot.”
The song by The Game features Diddy, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Fabolous, Wale, DJ Khaled, Swizz Beatz, Yo Gotti, Curren$y, Problem, King Pharaoh and the R&B super-group TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank).
In an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, The game says, “The issues in Ferguson really hit home for me, and I feel compelled to use my musical platform to address this.”
“I am a black man with kids of my own that I love more than anything, and I cannot fathom a horrific tragedy like Michael Brown’s happening to them,” he added. “This possibility has shaken me to my core. That is why this song must be made and why it was so easy for so many of my friends to come together and unite against the injustice.”
In a show of solidarity, the rappers on the track are a Pan-American show.
“I managed to get everyone on board fairly easy, simply because we have the hearts,” stated the game. “We care and are inclined to take a positive approach to resolving an issue that has existed since the beginning of mankind and that is racism and hatred towards one another as human beings.”
Listen to the song and purchase it on iTunes, the money raised from the track will go to the Justice for Mike Brown GoFundMe account.
Give us your opinion on the track and let us know what you think.
As we have seen throughout the past couple of months, just about every celebrity has accepted the ALS ice bucket challenge and then continued to challenge their celebrity friends and family. 50 Cent on the other hand, decided to change the challenge.
The rapper challenged his not-so friend, Floyd Mayweather to read one page from a Harry Potter book without stopping, starting over or messing up. If Floyd accepts the challenge, Fifty said he would donate $750K to a charity of his choice.
As you’re probably imagining that this could be just for laughs, The Breakfast Club took this challenge to another level by airing an unreleased audio of Mayweather struggling to read some drops for the radio station.
Although, DJ Envy says this would take someone about 10 seconds to read, Floyd is heard repeatedly stopping and starting over as well as fumbling some of his words.
Watch the video of Fifty challenging Floyd, then listen to the audio released by The Breakfast Club.
Do you think that Floyd will accept the challenge or will he ignore it as if it never happened? What is your opinion?
As the case of Michael Brown continues, we have recently seen that the National Guard was brought into Ferguson to supposedly, help “calm” things in the town.
Yet, according to CNN host Don Lemon, who has spent several days reporting from Ferguson; said on Tuesday that a member of the National Guard had called protestors the n-word.
As CNN aired a town hall event about the racial divide in the United States, a member of the audience asked what precautions could be used to prevent officers from overreacting when dealing with African-American men.
The Black Sphere’s Kevin Jackson said that putting body cameras on officers can change the dynamic in police stops.
“If there is a camera, he knows he’s got to check himself, and if you know an officer has a camera, you also have to check yourself,” explained Jackson.
Lemon then added that cameras could also make a “certain type of person” think twice before they decide to go into law enforcement to begin with.
“Last night, one of my producers said that they came in contact with one of the members of the National Guard. And they said, ‘You want to get out of here because you’re white. Because there n-words, you know, you never know what they’re going to do,’” Said Lemon.
The CNN host added that this was a true story, “I kid you not. 2014, a member of the National Guard, and my producer doesn’t lie,” he added.
What is your opinion on this? Should the member of the National Guard be punished in some way for using racial slurs? Or is it his Freedom of Speech to say exactly how he feels about the situation? Let us know what you think.
