Beyonce Presents Blue Ivy’s FACE To Get You To Watch Her HBO Documentary

“Life Is But A Dream”

Lots of y’all are pretty jaded when it comes to Beyonce and her Perfect Life…and I tend to agree to an extent.  But we’re all here for one thing and one thing ONLY.  Blue Ivy’s FACE, which has never been seen until it’s time to pimp out the HBO “documentary” (eyeroll) Life Is But A Dream airing tomorrow night.  If you don’t know what I’m referring to, this is how HBO is promoting the special:

Multiple Grammy®-winner, entrepreneur and actress Beyoncé will be the focus of an intimate feature-length HBO documentary film debuting Feb. 16, 2013, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming.  Directed by the superstar, the film is a fusion of video that provides raw, unprecedented access to the private entertainment icon and high-voltage performances.

“Everybody knows Beyoncé’s music, but few know Beyoncé the person,” said Lombardo.  “Along with electrifying footage of Beyoncé onstage, this unique special looks beyond the 

“Along with electrifying footage of Beyoncé onstage, this unique special looks beyond the glamour to reveal a vibrant, vulnerable, unforgettable woman.”

“HBO has a history of pushing every boundary with class and authenticity,” said Beyoncé.  “Some of my favorite shows are on HBO, so I am excited that my film will be part of its bold programming. This film was so personal to me, it had to have the right home.”

The film is a multi-faceted portrait of the 16-time Grammy Award-winning singer, businesswoman, songwriter, actress, entrepreneur, wife and mother, showing off the extraordinary gifts that have made her a global phenomenon, and stripping away the veneer of stardom. It includes extensive first-person footage, some of it shot by Beyoncé on her laptop, in which she reflects on the realities of celebrity, the refuge she finds onstage and the transcendent joy of becoming a mother last year.

The film sheds light on her childhood in Houston, with home movies revealing the close bond she built with her family and charts the challenges Beyoncé felt when she decided to manage her career and build her own company, Parkwood Entertainment.  The film also captures the intense physical and emotional demands she goes through in the studio, preparing for live performances, running a business and her family life including her return to the spotlight after the birth of her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, in January 2012.

I’m already grinding my teeth over the pretentiousness of it all.  I don’t know if I’ll even watch it, because Lord knows, I’ll yell at the TV too much already. (You should’ve heard me last night during that “certain part” on Scandal last night.  “Daaaaayuuummmmm!” was probably heard all the way across town.)  Oh–you’re waiting to see The Golden Platinum Child, aren’t you?

 

I’m pretty sure Beyonce had NOTHING to due with this child and she’s 100% Sean Carter’s baby.  I don’t know how he did it, but it goes to show what Money + The Illuminati can do.  Just kidding. (Not really.) Wait, yeah I am. Or not.

Jackson Family Drama Continues

The Fighting Jacksons

The tensions in the Jackson family continue to escalate with more reports of fighting and Michael‘s children now having to take matters into their own hands. TMZ and ABC‘s ‘Good Morning America obtained footage of Jermaine and Janet Jackson outside of Katherine Jackson‘s home in Calabasas arguing after the Sheriff’s department arrived to respond to an alleged battery. Security camera footage from the driveway shows Janet and other brother Randy filming them and trying to take the children from the home.

At least one of the siblings has come to their senses. Tito no longer wants to be a part of the letter he signed with Janet, Jermaine, Randy and Rebbie to have them appointed as executors to Michael’s will.

I completely retract my signature from the July 17th letter sent to the Executors of my brother’s Michael’s estate and repudiate all the claims made against them. I don’t want any part of that letter whatsoever,” he said in a statement released by a rep for the estate.

Tito’s 34-year old son T.J. has been keeping contact with Paris over twitter saying,

I know it’s completely unfair for them to do this to you and your brothers. We will keep trying. I love you.”

T.J. is said to be like a parent to them, and is seeking temporary guardianship of Paris and her brothers, a source tells E! News.

Katherine’s “disappearance” to Arizona has apparently been a part of a plan to remove Katherine and the children from their home, with Janet being the mastermind for the spa visit because she was worried about her mother’s health.

 “Following the incident, it was learned that one of the family members who was part of the ambush admitted that a plan has been in place for the last three years to remove Katherine Jackson from her home and her beloved grandchildren,” Katherine’s attorney Sandra Ribera said.

Randy told Rev. Al Sharpton on his MSNBC show ‘PoliticsNation’ that he and his siblings simply went to the home to set the record straight with the kids.

We did go to the home to let Paris and Prince know that they can visit with or talk to their grandma at any time because we felt that someone was trying to twist the story and make it feel as though we were the problem, denying them access to their grandma,” Randy said.

When we got to the home, we were kind of denied access to our home by security and trench and that never happened. This is all an effort to try to deflect attention away from a letter that was written asking for the resignation of John Branca and John McClain.”

This is exhausting. Whatever is going on, I hope the children and Katherine are safe…really safe.

We kind of have a bad feeling about this…don’t you?

Harper Seven Beckham Obviously Weighs More Than Her Mum, Victoria Beckham

Harper and her Mum

Y’all know I love Victoria Beckham.  She’s got a great sense of humor and is becoming a true fashion icon with her fashion line.  But.  I’m worried about my imaginary BFF her.  Victoria’s known for appearing a bit aloof, but deep down, I think it’s been out of fear.  Lately though, Victoria just seems profoundly unhappy.  Sad.  Postpartum depression?  I don’t know what could be going on, but these looks are not merely snooty or haughty. Plus, she’s thinner than everHarper isn’t even a year old yet.

Victoria Tweeted this photo of herself in China several days ago.

I don’t know.  I just sense a real desperation and loneliness in this photo.  Kind of like the one of Princess Diana sitting alone in front of the Taj Mahal. 

 

Remember? What do y’all think?  Am I being overly-sensitive on a perfect stranger’s behalf?  I don’t think I am;  I know sadness when I see it.
