Rachel Roy Faces Renewed Jay Z Affair Rumors Over Instagram Post Following Beyoncé’s ‘Lemonade’ Release

Published

Rachel Roy just got stung by the Beyhive once again.

The fashion designer — whose close connection with Jay Z once sparked affair rumors — faces new scrutiny after posting a cryptic message to Instagram following the release of Beyoncé’s “Lemonade” album and music video.

In the evocative “Lemonade” project, Beyoncé seems to hint at Jay Z’s infidelity in multiple tracks, notably punctuating a verse in her song “Sorry” by proclaiming, “He better call Becky with the good hair.”

Several hours after the song dropped, Roy posted an Instagram photo of herself and a friend with the caption, “Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always.”

Rachel Roy sparked speculation with this photo, which she captioned, “Good hair don’t care.”

“Live in the light,” the captioned continued. “#nodramaqueens.”

The post immediately sparked speculation among fans that Roy had just outed herself as the subject of the singer’s new song.

“Are you Becky?” one hand-wringing fan posted in the photo’s comments section.

Another simply added: “Becky with d good hair.”

Several hours later, Roy took down the photo before making her Instagram account private.

Roy was at the center of the drama in 2014 after Solange Knowles punched and kicked Jay Z in an elevator at a Met Gala afterparty.

The fashion designer was previously married to Jay Z’s old business partner Damon Dash — who worked with the rapper on both his Roc-a-Fella Records label and his Rocawear clothing line. Jay Z bought out Dash’s share of the clothing company in 2005.

But in 2014, Roy was linked to Jay Z once again after Beyonce’s sister Solange was caught on video punching and kicking the rapper in an elevator at a Met Gala after-party at the Standard Hotel in the Meatpacking District.

Sources told the Daily News at the time that Solange’s attack was triggered by the hip-hop mogul getting “too close” to Roy at the party.

“Rachel is a little too close to Jay Z,” a source said. “Solange doesn’t like it, and Beyoncé doesn’t like it.”

Beyoncé has remained mostly silent about the incident, but she appeared to insinuate she was cheated on throughout her eclectic “Lemonade” setlist.

“Looking at my watch, he shoulda been home,” she declares in “Sorry.” “Today I regret the night I put that ring on. He always got them f—king excuses. I pray to the Lord you reveal what his truth is.”

Beyoncé’s Natural Hair is Hair Goals!

Published

Have you seen Beyoncé’s natural hair? Listen, now that is what I call “hair goals”! Her mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson, has shared a video showing off her famous daughter’s hair on Instagram. In the video Ms Tina is brushing through her multi talented daughter’s hair, and kept saying “au naturale”.

To say that Queen Bey’s hair is “envy enducing” would just be an understatement, that hair is just all kinds of amazing! I mean, if that was my hair I would probably not even wait for my mom to gush about it, I would do the bragging my self. Beyoncé though, isn’t as “petty” as I am, in fact she didn’t seem to appreciate her mother’s antics. She can be heard saying: “Mama, that is really annoying. I mean very annoying”, in a strained laugh.

This is not the first time Ms Tina has gushed over her daughter’s hair on social media. Last year she shared a photo of Queen Bey’s glorious tresses tied in a ponytail, and talked about how happy she was that her daughter’s hair grew back after she had cut it into a pixie.  Ms Tina is obviously proud of her daughter’s hair, but I mean, which mother wouldn’t be?

Legendary Geto Boys member Bushwick Bill has died after a longtime battle with pancreatic cancer, TMZ reports. Last month, Bill released a video describing the chemotherapy treatment he’d been receiving for his Stage 4 cancer.

His death was confirmed by Geto Boys groupmate Scarface this morning, who took to Instagram to pay tribute to the rapper. “RIP Bushwick Bill,” he wrote in his Instagram caption. He was 52.

Bushwick Bill was born on December 8, 1966 in Kingston, Jamaica. The rapper (born Richard Stephen Shaw) moved to Brooklyn, New York in his youth before ultimately settling in Houston, where he joined Geto Boys as a dancer in the late 1980s.

Shaw suffered from dwarfism throughout his life, which informed to his early Geto Boys stage name “Little Billy.” At 3 feet 8 inches tall, he became one of the group’s most memorable contributors, and his image graced the cover of Geto Boys’ 1991 album We Can’t Be Stopped, which depicts groupmates Scarface and Willie D rushing Shaw to the hospital after shooting his own eye out in the summer of 1991. Shaw released six studio albums as a solo artist including 1992’s Little Big Man, 1995’s Phantom of the Rapra, and most recently the 2010 album My Testimony of Redemption.

Last month, Geto Boys announced a farewell tour following Shaw’s cancer diagnosis, which was later cancelled due to his health. According to reports from TMZ, he was also upset by the title of the tour, which implied he was on his deathbed.

Update (12:30pm): Bushwick Bill apparently hasn’t died after all. TMZ has updated their report to note that the musician is “still alive and fighting cancer” according to his publicist. The publicist confirmed his status with hospital staff, who say that the musician is still in their care, with numerous family members by bedside.

Update (1:45pm): In a new post on Instagram, Bushwick Bill’s son confirmed that the Geto Boys musician is still alive. “My dad IS NOT dead, he’s still alive and fighting for his life,” he writes in the post’s caption. “He needs your continued prayers and support. Certain people have been so quick to write him off as dead so they can capitalize off it, and it’s messed up because y’all really think these people care about him. There is no Geto Boys without Bushwick Bill.”

Nick Jonas Feared Brothers Would ‘Never Speak to Me Again’ After Band Split

Published

on

Just days before the release of the Jonas Brothers’ new album “Happiness Begins” on June 7th, the band sat down with CBS Sunday Morning to discuss their reunion journey and the circumstances behind their breakup.

After the brothers Jonas, Kevin, Joe and Nick, encountered stagnating record and ticket sales and faced internal strife, the band split up in 2013. “To call it creative differences is almost too simple,” Nick said. “And I think a lot of people lost the appetite for what we were putting into the world. So, you know, we were putting up shows that weren’t selling. We were making music that I don’t think we were all super proud of, and it wasn’t connected.”

He explained that the brothers’ relationship was also strained, so he had a “tough conversation” with Kevin and Joe. “I said, ‘You know, I feel like the Jonas Brothers should be no more, and we should go on individual journeys.’ And it didn’t go so well,” he recalls.

At that point, Joe thought that the band was done. “I checked out in my mind that – that was it. There’s going to be no more brothers ever,” he tells Smith.

Nick added, “And I feared that, you know, we – they would never speak to me again.”

Inbetween their breakup, Joe focused on his funky pop project DNCE, while Nick concentrated more on acting and his solo career. Kevin was dedicated to raising his two daughters.

Ultimately, the brothers couldn’t stay apart. “I think we –- we definitely were supposed to go through all of what we went through to get to this point, definitely,” Joe says. “I think it was, it was kind of, I guess you could say destiny, whatever it may be, but yeah, we got a do-over, and I think this time around we’re going to do it right.”

In February, the Jonas Brothers revealed their reunion plans with the release of “Sucker,” which debuted at Number One on the Billboard Hot 100. They’ve since released another single titled “Cool.” Alongside the release of their first album in 10 years, the band announced earlier this week that they would release new documentary “Chasing Happiness” on June 4th via Amazon Prime and a memoir titled “Blood” on November 12th.

On August 7th, the Jonas Brothers will head out on a North American tour in support of “Happiness Begins” in Miami.
