beyonce knowles

We've heard some crazy conspiracy theories in our day (Fake Paul McCartney, Cloned Avril Lavigne etc), but this one takes the cake.

A new claim which has been circulating online is suggesting that Beyoncé Knowles gave birth to Solange as a teenager, and is actually 45-years-old.

This would mean that the iconic singer was pregnant at roughly age 12 or 13, and the baby was raised by her parents as her sister. It also means that Queen Bey is seven years older than she claims to be.

The strange theory implies that Bey has rolled back the time on her age, and was born in 1974 instead of 1981. Solange is 32-years-old, and was born in 1986, so is five years younger than her world-famous older sis.

Beyoncé's given date of birth is September 4, 1981, meaning she would have been too young to have given birth to Solange. An online post was started by someone who claims to have worked at Bey's Columbia record label for four years.

The age-change rumours also assert that Beyoncé's cousin confirmed the Solange claim. The (insane) post stated: "Beyonce's precise birthdate is 9/4/1974.

"I saw a picture of her driver's licence that was on my manager's computer once don't ask how." (Oh, we're definitely asking how…) "Beyonce and Solange are both teenaged mothers, I do not know the paternity of Solange."

The post continues, writing: "I have heard many crazy things while working at Columbia for four years. The Beyonce stuff a close relative of hers told me so I am more prone to believe that.

"Bey's cousin told me Beyonce's daughter is Solange and she said it to me in confidence after the topic of teenage pregnancies came up. She is not the sarcastic type either so I doubt she would make something up that is so scandalous about her own cousin."

"If the story was true, it would make Beyonce a grandmother as Solange gave birth to a son, Daniel, when she was 18."

Actress Gabrielle Union claimed that herself and Beyonce have been friends "since we were teenagers", but Union is 46-years-old. If she was truly nine years older than Bey, they never would have been teens at the same time.

This comment has been one of the reasons why rumours were sparked, but we're not buying it. The lack of evidence is pretty ridiculous, but we can't help but be entertained by the theory. What do you gals think?

Stop the world, we're getting off. Beyoncé and Jay-Z have once again proven how iconic and culture-shaping they are by putting a painting of Queen Meghan Markle behind them, and now it's for SALE in poster format.

The Carters won the Best International Group gong at The Brit Awards over the weekend, and paid tribute to the Duchess of Sussex herself in an ode to their incredible APESH**T music video in the Louvre.

Captioning the unreal video, Beyoncé wrote;

"Thank you to the Brits for the award for Best International Group. I won this award back in 2002 with my besties, Kelly and Michelle." Destiny's Child is for life, it's not a phase, mom.

"How lucky am I to have been in a group with my other best friend, the GOAT Hova. In honour of Black History Month, we bow down to one of our Melanated Monas. Congrats on your pregnancy! We wish you so much joy," she concluded.

Well, all other artwork is now irrelevant. The Renaissance is CANCELLED. The Louvre is to be shut down, except for this one painting that precedes all others. Picasso never happened. It's only Meghan Mona Lisa that matters.

Prolific artist Tim O'Brien is the man behind the amazing painting, and has done some amazing works to represent American politics and culture.

O'Brien works as a professor at the Pratt Institute and is one of the world's most famous illustrator, having covering Time magazine over and over again.

Every wall can now be dedicated to the Duchess yourself, because these posters are for sale. If you have $100, that is. If you're a rich b*tch, we HIGHLY recommend purchasing this rare art form.

O'Brien's website has loads of unreal work up for sale as prints, and even has a Beyoncé feature in Elizabethan garb, reminiscent of her Mrs. Carter world tour announcement. It's $85: Worth it.

Beyoncé's father and former manager of Destiny's Child, Mathew Knowles, is claiming that he did everything possible to protect the girlband from R Kelly.

After hearing "some of those things" about the notorious sexual predator, he deliberately kept Destiny's Child away from him for their safety.

He also admits that hearing about Kelly's horrendous reputation for sexual, mental and physical abuse played a role in stopping the R&B band from collaborating with him.

A criminal investigation into dozens of allegations against R Kelly is now underway in Chicago and Atlanta following the Lifetime documentary Surviving R Kelly.

The Ignition singer, real name Robert Kelly, is accused of holding numerous women in a dangerous 'sex cult' in his homes, as well as having abusive, sexual relationships with underage girls as young as 12. He strongly denies this.

Rumours of his behaviour have been rampant since the early 1990s, after he forged singer Aaliyah's documents to allow her to marry him aged just 15, while he was 27.

Knowles claims that he originally turned down offers for Destiny's Child to collaborate with Kelly at first because he "didn't think it was a good song", according to Metro.


A post shared by Terrance Tyson (@ttyson333) on

The 67-year-old, who is the father of Beyoncé and Solange, commented that he never let the band members out of his sight;

"I was there, and my former wife Tina was there. The thing with R Kelly was, he liked to record late at night, around midnight. And what was different with his studio was that one room had a recording suite, and next door was a club, with 40 or 50 people dancing."

He continued; "R Kelly was managed by Sony, by someone I won’t name, and at that time, they would almost force you to record with their artists. R Kelly wasn’t cheap – it was $75,000, plus travel costs, so we’re talking $100,000 for a song."

He added that Kelly's negative reputation was in it's early stages, "I personally rejected the song, because I didn’t think it was a good song. Not just because of his reputation – this was around 1998, we had just begun to hear some of those things."

Mathew later said that the rumours surrounding Kelly's deplorable behaviour played a part in his choices for the girlband from then on, he said;

"Certainly, it was both of those things. The girls were 15, 16. When they went to the bathroom, Tina would go with them. They did not leave our eyes." They were allegedly under strict supervision, and were protected from him.

Another source for Metro claims that;

"Record labels would ask R Kelly to write songs for emerging artists as a way to help them break into the industry and he made several requests for Destiny’s Child," the source suggests.


A post shared by Destiny's Child (@destinyschild) on

"Mathew and Tina rejected all of them because they didn’t want him anywhere near the band which is why they are one of the few acts to debut in the 90s without an R Kelly song in its official discography," they added.

Only one Destiny's Child song is associated with R Kelly, Stimulate Me, which appeared on the soundtrack for Eddie Murphy's film Life in 1999.

Apparently Kelly did not work in the studio at the same time as the group, and the song never actually appeared as an official Destiny's Child release, so the gals are off the hook. 

We're glad Mathew Knowles had the ability to keep the group protected from him, sadly other women weren't as fortunate.



Beyoncé celebrates her 37th birthday today and her mum has penned the sweetest birthday message to her daughter.

Tina Knowles shared a throwback photo in honour of the Crazy In Love singer’s big day. She posted a photo from when Beyoncé was only four-months-old and she looks too cute.


A post shared by Tina Knowles (@mstinalawson) on

“It’s already your birthday where you are so Happy Birthday to the nicest, owner of the most beautiful, generous, loving hearts ever!”

She gushed: “Always thinking, planning, analyzing, strategizing, how you can make everything you touch better.”

Her mum explained why she chose the photo of a young Beyoncé: “On this day you were 4 months old and i couldn’t even control the excitement and pride and the all encompassing love I felt for you, my first born.”


A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

Tina continued: “I made a vow to love and cherish you everyday. For the rest of my life! Sometimes I can’t believe out of all the incredible people in the world I was chosen by God to be your mom.”

The mum said the day Beyoncé and her sister Solange were born were two of the greatest days of her life.


A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

“It is a privilege to have carried you two in this body,” she added.

“Enjoy your B-Day!!! No one deserves it more!! I love you. Mom.”

Talk about the most heartfelt birthday message ever. Can Tina Knowles wish us a happy birthday?

All hail Queen Bey.


It was the title that somehow eluded the otherwise undisputed queen of social media: Kim Kardashian had always lagged behind Beyonce Knowles when it came to adoring Instagram followers.

Not so any more, however. Yes, this week it became apparent that the reality TV star had overtaken the singer, beating her to the milestone 44million mark.

And as of this morning – Mrs West is still a nose ahead of Mrs Carter.

So just how did Kimmy Kay do it? Here, SHEmazing! looks at the five ways that Kim managed to nab Bey's crown…



Kim posts a lot of pictures. All the time. Beyonce? Well, she's a lot more low-key. In fact, the pop-star has only shared six snaps in the last week. Kimmy, on the other hand, has offered up a grand total of 24.

And when it comes to hovering up more fans, there's a lot to be said for posting daily rather than weekly.



There's no doubt that both women are married to mega-successful rappers and businessmen, but Jay Z and Queen B have always conducted their relationship away from the spotlight. Indeed, they didn't even publicise their marriage until after their vows had taken place.

In contrast, Kim is regularly followed by KUWTK cameras and all her life's major milestones and events – including her union with Kanye West – are documented and shared in detail.

The same applies for their daughters: we see A LOT more of North West than we do Blue Ivy Carter.



Beyonce's bikini photos undeniably demand heaps of attention: a laid-back and natural swimsuit snap from earlier this summer garnered 1.5million likes and more than 30,000 gushing comments.

But of course, Ms Kardashian is always willing to go above and beyond: she recently shared a totally naked pregnancy body pic and regularly parts with mega-cleavage baring selfies.


Celebrity pals:

Her famous family is one thing – but Kim also ropes plenty of other big names into her Instagram posts.

There's Jennifer Lopez at the Met Ball, after all, as well as some of fashion's biggest names (Valentino, Olivier Roustein, Riccardo Tisci et al) – not to mention the ultimate selfie nap: Hillary Clinton herself.

Meanwhile, Beyonce's celebrity posts are largely confined to folk she's close to: think Destiny's Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, and her sister Solange.

Although just occasionally, she does share a sneak-peak of her with the likes of Ed Sheeran and Blake Lively.


Magazine covers:

We just saw Beyonce looking all sorts of amazing on US Vogue, but you have to hand it to Kim: she regularly bags hugely high-profile covers.

In the last few months alone, there has been Vogue Espana and Vogue Brasil, not to mention Elle France.

And – as if we could forget, there is her break-the-internet Paper magazine cover from late last year too.



Recent reports have circulated that Beyonce and Jay Z are struggling to get pregnant a second time round.

Rumours have even suggested that the couple may be having their second child through a surrogate. According to In Touch magazine, Bey and Jay have decided to use a surrogate as a safer option. A source revealed that “The surrogate is still in the early stages of the pregnancy, so they have yet to announce it to the public.”

With fertility issues taking their toll, it looks as if Beyonce is feeling a certain sense of animosity towards Kim Kardashian, who has recently revealed that she is pregnant with a boy.

Speaking to HollywoodLife.com, an insider revealed that “Unfortunately Bey and Jay have struggled to get pregnant this time around. They are seeing their doctor and doing everything they can to have a baby.”

The source continued, “Beyonce is actually jealous that Kim got pregnant and she hasn’t.” Although the 33-year-old apparently isn’t holding a grudge. “She’s happy for Kim but also a little envious,” the insider admitted.

And certainly, Kim and Kanye have had their own struggles: namely Kim's difficulties in becoming pregnant for a second time. Indeed, Kim was very open about her fertility issues on this season of KUWTK and revealed how she turned to IVF treatments in order to become pregnant.

It has also recently come to light that Kimye only had male embryos implanted to ensure the birth of a baby boy. According to reports both Kim and Kanye wanted a brother for Nori, while Kanye especially wanted a son so he could have an “heir”.


Famous folk have an incredible knack for remaining ageless. They just don’t seem to crinkle, cease, and wear and tear like the rest of us eventually do.

But then there are the celebrities who seem to only ever get better with the passing of each year. Whether the result of good genes, expert grooming, expensive beauty treatments, or even the odd nip-tuck, these six stars are more beautiful and more striking now than they were a decade ago…

Beyonce Knowles has never been anything less than a total hottie – but it’s also clear that she’s never looked better. Gone is the dodgy fashion of her Destiny’s Child days and, as displayed at the recent Met Ball in New York wearing Givenchy Couture, Ms Knowles is now definitely approaching goddess territory. That and she still looks significantly younger than her 33 years.

We’re going out on a limb here, but we think that fatherhood and Angelina Jolie have done Brad Pitt a world of good. He may be now 51 (nope, we can’t believe it either), but there’s a certain gentlemanly distinction to the Brad of 2015 that was lacking in his youth. He's busier than ever too: later this year, By The Sea, staring both Jolie and Pitt, will be released – their first collaboration since 2005’s Mr & Mrs Smith

Singer-turned-designer Victoria Beckham, 41, had oodles of male fans during her Spice Girls days – including her now-husband David Beckham, who spotted her donning a black leather cat-suit in her Say You’ll Be There video and quickly arranged for the pair to meet. However, fast-forward to 2015 and Victoria rarely looks anything less than picture-perfect: she’s found her fashion niche and has established herself as a serious style icon.

Colin Farrell is one of the things that our nation can be proud of – and while we’re sure he turned a few heads during his Ballykissangle days, he’s really coming into his own now. He celebrates his 39th birthday later this month, but we reckon he looks better than he did a decade ago at the height of his fame. A father-of-two, he’s kicked the booze and replaced it with yoga – and it’s a lifestyle that clearly suits him.

Cheryl Fernandez Versini, 31, has just signed a big-money deal to return to the X Factor this year – and she is repeatedly referred to as one of the world’s most beautiful women. She’s always been stunning, but these days she’s definitely looking a lot more groomed. And frankly we’d give our right arm to have a sneak peek inside her surely-extensive wardrobe.

He is in incredible shape for a man of any age – never mind for a guy who’ll turn 44 next month. In his Marky Mark days back in the early Nineties, Mark Walhberg was arguably on wrong side of cringe, but these days he’s sophisticated and suave. His 1992 Calvin Klein advert alongside Kate Moss remains iconic, but we’d take the suited-and-booted Mark of 2015 over his younger self any day. 




Bey and Jay-Z’s marriage is on the rocks according to the New York Post,  after it claimed yesterday that the couple were already planning their separation.

Speculation began after one source said that the couple had planned on separating, once they had completed their On The Run tour.

But Beyoncé responded to the rumours in the only way she can, through Instagram!

Yesterday, the singer shared a family snap of her and Jay-Z holding the hands of their daughter Blue Ivy.

Then this evening, the Flawless singer shared an interesting picture of herself as the World War II icon, Rosie Riverter.

Hmmm one thing is for sure, Beyoncé is determined not to let the rumours get to her.



It’s exactly a week, since the shocking footage of Solange attacking Jay-Z in an elevator was released.

But it seems that Beyonce, Solange and Jay-Z are more determined than ever to put last week’s behind them by displaying a united front, through Instagram snaps anyway.

Solange, Beyonce and Jay-Z made an public appearance together on Saturday. This was the first time all three met up, since the release of the elevator footage a week ago.

Beyonce posted several pictures of the happy reunion on her Instagram account today.

The pictures showed Solange, Jay-Z and Beyonce all posing happily together.

While we may never know what happened in that elevator, at least we know that all three have put it behind them.




We will probably never know what occurred in that elevator, but what we do know, is Solange is sticking by her big sis.

Rumours began circling that Solange was mad at Beyonce, after she mysteriously removed nearly all traces of her big sister, from her Instagram account.

Beyonce then began to raise further eyebrows, when she added numerous images of her and Solange to her own Instagram account, the following day.

But Solange has made it clear through Instagram anyways, that she is sticking by her sis. The singer posted an adorable Throwback Thursday picture of her and Beyonce this afternoon. Awww!

If there is anything to note from these cryptic Instagram pictures, there have been none of Beyonce’s hubby, Jay-Z. Hmmm, interesting.



A video has just surfaced online of Jay-Z being physically attacked by his sister-in-law, Solange, in a elevator after last week’s Met Gala.

In the video you can see Solange attempting to kick Jay-Z, while Beyoncé stands in the corner trying to avoid getting physically involved in the fight.

While neither Beyonce’s nor Jay-Z’s representatives have commented on the video, the three figures in the footage definitely do look like Beyoncé, Solange and Jay-Z.

We just can’t believe this!



It seems Lily is taking no prisoners in her latest music video Sheezus, as the singer calls out a number of top female performers including the queen herself, Beyoncé.

Lily sarcastically demands in the song that Rihanna, Lady GaGa, Beyoncé, Katy Perry and Lorde move over and hand their musical thrones to her.

The singer even directly speaks of the each of the artists musical directions and says: “give me that crown, bitch.”

Lily said her new single is about her entering the music industry again as a female artist.

“And I guess the chorus talks about other people who exist in the scene and that women tend to be kinda played off against each other and it’s sorta sold to us or the way I read it is there is a queen and everyone else is in there kind of slip stream or whatever. And I guess what it’s trying to say is that we can all be Sheezus.”
