Jay & Beyonce

I love pics of Jay-Z and Beyonce, and lucky for me, there are no shortage of them out there. Besides the fashion--both of them hit the trends like nobody's business--they're a fascinating pair. Jay's the ghetto superstar, a true self made man that has reached incredible heights of success despite numerous roadblacks put in the way of anyone who grows up poor and a minority in this country. Beyonce, on the other hand, is a total Southern Belle and as such, a real steel magnolia, coached from birth on how to carry and conduct herself publically. And while she may be all sweetness and light on the surface, you know Momma didn't raise no fool.

Here's a recent set of pictures (hat tip to BeyonceWorld, without whom, obsessing over these two would be impossible) of them coming out of a fancy New York restarant. They're just back from a brief vacation in Miami, and as usual there is a disturbing lack of affectionate body language between them. But Jay outdoes himself in this sequence when, in leaving the restaurant, he basically leaves his girl in the dust.


^^"See ya!" That's Beyonce waaaay behind him. Note on the fashion: I love how even though he's now known for his suits, when he gets back into his homeboy gear, he stays coordinated. Click on the image and see how perfectly his Nikes match his striped Rocawear top.

^^"Excuse me!! Hello??" At this point, Jay is nowhere to be found.

^^"Slow your roll!!" She finally catches up to him at the curb and puts her hand on him though she's all off kilter trying to fix her hair AND keep her brand new three-inch heels from falling through the subway grating (nice of Jay not to notice).

^^And even though she manages to catch up with him, seconds later, he's again gone POOF and she gets in the limo alone. Though man, check out her shoes! That's a hot shoe/bag color for spring, and I give Bee credit for being right on it. See! Even if her man doesn't know how to act, she still looks smoking!

Now some people might say he's just protecting his hard image, but whatever, I've seen rap artists Nas and Nelly all over their respective girls, so color me sceptical. Funny thing is, Beyonce appears to be fine with his "distant" ways, but this is where it gets interesting for me. Is she really okay that he leaves her unescorted? Or is she just putting on a good show--you know, appearances matter--until she can get him in the car and give him a good chewing out.

Why do people read so much out what they see? Maybe she told him to walk in front of her so they can sprint out without being notice. Stop making things, mean things!!!! There is a difference in what happen and what you interpret what happen. Just because they will not put a show (PDA) on for the public say alot. They don't need to prove anything to anybody.

Huh--the post is overwhelmingly positive in terms of how I view Jay and B as individuals, but yeah, I do find their body chemistry interesting. They definitely leave a lot up for interpretation.

I have ie on good authority that Bigga is a publicity stunt. Please stop obessesing over something that is not real. These 'spontaneous' pictures are as coordinated as any photo/publicity shoot. Trust me. Part of the arrangement is that he is NOT allowed to kiss her, because for her that would be "eww and so so wrong". Their relationship is a promotional stunt for their celebrtiy alter egos. If I'm wrong somewhere in all the pictures you see of them together you will find one of them kissing. Trust me, I can't tell you how I know but it is ALL fake.

publicity stunt? these people been together for almost damn four years...nothing in marketing or PR or even album sales will convince two people to spend every waking hour together for the sake of image or public acceptance...please get over it and trust that bey and jay are together...damn

shay said...

It more like 5 years with these two and I highly doubt it's a publicity stunt.

I can understand them not showing PDA because the cameras are always in their faces but can he at least walk with her to the limo.

They do not spend that much time together. The number of pictures taken are engineered to make it seems as though they do hang out a lot. They don't. It's business. They need you to keep talking about them...and obviously it is working. Please. Trust me on this, I know what I'm talking about and the truth will eventually spill out.

If you find a picture of them kissing like couples do - famous or otherwise, then I am wrong and will apologise. But I KNOW you won't find a picture like that because that is not allowed to happen. Trust me. Falling for the schemes of fools makes you a fool. Celebrity is essentially b******t. Believing it is ridiculous. Free your minds.

There relationship is one-sided. Hova does love the girl and wants to wife her - but B just ain't that into Hova. Recently B made a play for a popular actor who is very married with children. This actor politely turned her down.

GO TO BEYONCE WORLD AND LOOK UP CANDIDS UNDER ITALY VACATION THERE IS A PIC OF THEM KISSING I WISH I KNEW HOW TO POST PICS BUT I AM WAITING FOR THAT APOLOGY

I went where you sugested and didn't find anything that was contrary to my assertions. Lots of posed attempts at authenticity. No kissing though. Now your ignorance is just making me angry. If you prefer to live in the dark, aspire to and worship things that are not real then that is your preogative. I trust the things I know much more than the things that are constructed for me to see. I believe the people that work behind the lens rather than those who are obssesed with being in front of it. I was just suggesting ways for you not to waste your time feeding nascent egos. Good luck believing in publicity.

maybe there are no pictures of them kissing, but I have seen plenty of pictures with his hand way up in her tail, like a man holds his woman to show the world that she is his... if kissing him is so gross, then wouldnt his hand oh her butt be just as disgusting?

She is clearly in front of him in some of the pictures. I don't think he is being disrespectful at all. They are not like you and I were we have to be in front of our boyfriends at all times. He acts as her protector when they first walk out and then always slows down and opens up the door for her.

As for the idiot that's trying to say this is a publicity stunt: keep thinking that. Whatever makes you sleep better at night.

There is a picture of them kissing. It was in People magazine last summer. They were vacationing in St. Tropez. They were chilling on some dock or something.

Lois said...

Ehh--let's keep it in perspective. Basically we're talking about two strangers here. It's fun to see what these two interesting/successful folks are up to and speculate, but really it's just for fun and not to be taken too seriously.

Although I'm a big fan of Beyonce it's CLEAR from the body language between she and Jigga that he DOES not love her. She's always all over him and many of her lyrics profess deep feelings for Jay. Seeing them together in their ubiquitous photos reminds me of Greg Behrenhardt's book "He's Just Not that Into You". I'm not a hater and am a big fan of Beyonce and just starting to appreciate Jigga now that he's reduced the overkill of his misogynistic lyrics. Plus Jay and I are from the same rough scrabble neighborhood and we are about the same age so I'd love to see him succeed in life and love. But men from the Brooklyn projects don't settle down easily and rarely respect women. You may not like that truth but truth it is.

Peace.
