FULL VIDEO: Beyonce’s "Year Of 4" Mini-Documentary

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 30-06-2011

 

Beyonce‘s giving us a refreshing peek into her journey of creating her love-it-or-hate-it album 4. She was ready to get back to the fun of it all. And she shows us what inspired her to do so in tonight’s MTV/BET mini-documentary called "Year of 4."

Mama Tina encouraged her to not let life pass her by.  So after being exhausted after the last world tour and constant video and photoshoots and interviews and travel, Bey says she decided to take a year to herself just to do fun things she’s always wanted to do.  Like travel and spend time with family and friends.

She spoke on leaving her only manager she’s ever had–her father.  And she revealed why saying, "a real change meant separating from him."

She’s managing her team of "people" and paid for her own studio time herself instead of going through her label.  So the type of music she released is a result of her being free just to have fun.  There’s a clip of her working on the "Girls" choreography with Frank Gatson and the African dancers Tofu Tofu

There’s also a clip of her doing her album cover photoshoots in her and Jay‘s penthouse suite in Paris.  And we get an inside peek into how she tapped her hubby Jay, her cousin Angie, and her close friends to help her choose the 10-12 songs for the album.

GOSSIP BIT: Bow Wow’s Mom Tweets About Bow’s New Daughter?!

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 30-06-2011

So Bow Wow really does have a baby?  There’s a pic floating around the net posted by a certain "site" of a baby girl that is said to be Bow Wow’s, but it’s not.  The baby is actually Joie‘s, Bow’s alleged baby mama, best friend’s baby girl.

 

BUT…that doesn’t mean Bow and Joie didn’t have a baby of their own.  What Bow Wow’s mom said today that may confirm Bows a daddy when you read on…

A little less than a year ago, rumors started to spread that Bow Wow was messing with a video chick/booty model named Joie (pictured above)–interestingly at the same time he was trying to get back in his ex-girlfriend Angela Simmons‘ good graces.

Supposedly, Angela chucked him the deuces once she found out he allegedly knocked up this "model" chick Joie.  And so the rumors began.

Fast forward to 9 months later, and Bow has been sending subliminal mushy tweets for several weeks about a new person in his life who means so much to him.  And who he hates to leave.  He shot down fans who asked if he’s talking about his  alleged baby.  But still did so vaguely.

Supposedly, Joie delivered her baby girl named Shai very recently–and she just had her baby shower a coouple of weeks ago.

Bow Wow’s mom Teresa Caldwell tweeted just today this little nugget about said "Shai" (whose name could very well be a play off her supposed daddy’s name–Shad "Bow Wow" Moss):

 

Hmmm.  Then Bow tweeted this today:

Picture on **** aint my daughter… Some bloggers fucking suck at they job. Get accurate info for once. Stop feeding people bullshit

I dont need no blogs to tell my fans nuffn. Ill share my personal issues with my people when i feel comfortable. They will be 1st to know
 

Nothing’s confirmed….but we’re gonna go ahead and pop out the pink ribbon cigars for Bow.  Congrats.  Here’s more pics of Ms. Joie "working":

Tia Mowry & Cory Hardrict’s Baby’s Name REVEALED!

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 30-06-2011

Tia Mowry and Cory Hardrict revelaed to The YBF back in February that their baby boy’s name would begin with a C.  And they’ve just released their new bundle of joy’s full "C" name!

 

Hit the jump for the reveal…

Baby boy Cree Taylor Hardrict said HELLO WORLD! Tuesday morning.  Mom Tia delivered the couple’s 8lbs of baby fabness in L.A.  And they’re keeping with the first-letter-of-the-dad’s-name family tradition.  Tia, Tamera, and all their siblings have names starting with "T", just like their own father Timothy.

And it looks like they snuck in that "T" tradition as well with his middle name.  (By the way, Tia’s middle name is Dashon and her mom’s name is Darlene).  Cute!

Us Weekly reports the news saying:

"I never knew how much love I could feel for someone," The Game star Mowry, 32, gushed to Us.

Added Battle: Los Angeles star Hardrict, 31: "We both have tears of joy!"

The couple’s pregnancy will be documented alongside twin sis Tamera Mowry’s wedding journey on the sisters’ upcoming reality show called "Tia & Tamera" on August 8th on the Style Network.  The Hollywood Reporter dropped details on the show:

Sister, Sister stars Tia Mowry and Tamera Mowry are teaming up once again for their new style show, Tia & Tamera (formerly titled Tia & Tamera Take 2 after their one-off special that aired in July) and The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively that the eight-episode reality series will debut on the Style Network on August 8.

The series follows the 32-year-olds as Tia goes through her first pregnancy — she and her husband, actor Cory Hardrict, are expecting a boy in just a few weeks — and Tamera plans her wedding to FOX News correspondent Adam Housely, who she got engaged to in January.

Can’t wait to see baby Cree!
