TIME Magazine has unveiled its annual Most Influential People list, which is comprised of five separate categories: Artists, Leaders, Pioneers, Titans and Icons.
While the list itself isn't surprising -- media mainstays like Jennifer Lawrence, Jay-Z, Lena Dunham and Frank Ocean all landed spots -- what was intriguing is what other notable people wrote about them.
Everyone wondering why Jay-Z went from rapping about selling crack in Brooklyn to about rubbing shoulders and sampling truffles with Barack Obama in D.C., you can thank his bank accounts -- and Beyonce.
The couple have broken the $1 billion mark in their net worth.
Bet that's how she afforded those solid gold nips.
In response to complaints that Jay-Z and Beyonce illegally vacationed in the communist, cigar-making country of Cuba (despite getting government permission to do so), Mr. Carter has responded in a rather disappointing way: with a whiny song called 'Open Letter.'
You can check out the audio below, in which Hova laments the uselessness of politicians -- okay, as a whole, he's not wrong about that --
After returning from their romantic anniversary vacay in Cuba (which had everyone up in arms), seems Jay-Z now has plans to buy wife Beyonce her own island.
Because when you're Jay-Z and have a $227,000 American Express balance, picking up some flowers at the gas station last-minute just isn't going to cut it.
Beyonce and Jay-Z are celebrating five years of marital bliss -- a near lifetime by Hollywood standards -- and they rang it in with a bang.
Hov and Bey partied it up in Havana, Cuba, where they were mobbed by commoners because well, it's King Bey and one half of the Throne. That's what happens.
Since Jay-Z and wife Beyonce don't have enough on their plates -- what with being Grammy-winning recording artists, singing for presidents, going on tour with Justin Timberlake and being the face of clothing lines -- Jay-Z has now teamed up with a sports agency to represent the best of the best.
We imagine Bey and Mr. Carter's morning ritual starts a little something like this...
BEYONCE: Gee, Hov
Jay Z, Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian and Beyonce are among the latest victims of a major hacking scandal that resulted in someone posting the very private and detailed financial information of several big name stars and politicos online -- something that could cause big problems for the stars involved.
Kanye West is reminding everyone why he annoyed us so much for so long. After a relatively rant-free, quiet period, the egomaniacal rapper and future Kim Kardashian baby daddy went in on the Grammys, white people, Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake. Because of course he did.
Justin Timberlake's first official music video from his new album 'The 20/20 Experience' has been released in glorious black and white, and features dancing, Jay-Z (who, just like in real life, always has a drink in his hand), and an elaborate back story about JT eating cereal.
Okay, maybe not the cereal part so much.
It's our favorite time! Specifically, "Amanda Bynes is a crazy person who doesn't understand how the internet works" time.
Yesterday (Feb. 6), the retired millionaire posted a very strange tweet with merely the words “Ugly face” and a photo of Jay-Z, which was sent directly to the rapper via his own Twitter account since he was tagged in the message.
After a foot-stomping, booty-shaking performance during the Super Bowl 2013 halftime show, an excited Beyonce celebrated her flawless performance with an adorable rib-crushing hug from her husband Jay-Z backstage at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
It hardly seems possible, but the grapevine is just sure that new mommy and daddy Beyonce and Jay-Z spent upwards of $200,000 to celebrate the first birthday of their adorable and questionably-named bundle of joy, Blue Ivy.
We don’t want to believe it because all we got for our first birthday was a face full of cheap frosting, but perhaps the rumors don’t lie.
It happens to the best of us. Sometimes it's just so hard to keep celebrities from getting into spats at our $3 million birthday parties.
Just ask Leonardo DiCaprio. At his posh New York birthday celebration, there was a bit of a tiff between a couple of names you might recognize: Robert De Niro and Jay-Z.
