Helluva weekend right? Let's start with Miguel accidently landing on a fan at the Billboard Awards...(she's ok, btw.)
The Kanye West takeover officially began this weekend. The rapper premiered his new song and visuals for "New Slaves" this past weekend on 66 buildings across the world. Some of the locations included Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Wrigley's Field in Chicago, Toronto, London, Paris and Berlin.
Kanye then performed "New Slaves" and another single "Black Skinheads" on Saturday Night Live this weekend.
KANYE NAMES ALBUM 'YEEZUS'
Kanye's manager Don C. and girlfriend Kim Kardashian also posted a photo of the cover art to the rapper's upcoming album -- which is entitled Yeezus. The cover art features a melted gold object -- which looks like a Jesus Piece. There is a piece of red duct take to the side, which says "Yeezus."
Yeezus will hit stores on June 18th.
Is Beyonce pregnant or not? After weeks of speculation, E! News reported that several sources confirmed that the superstar is expecting her second child. The news comes off the heels of Bey cancelling a concert in Belgium last week for dehydration and exhaustion. Blogs have reported that Beyonce has bought out two baby carriages during her performance of "Grown Woman" while on tour.
When TMZ asked Kelly Rowland if Beyonce was pregnant, she responded with, "What?"
No official word from Beyonce or her rep. Beyonce performed in Milan this past weekend -- with no bump in site.
The superstar took to Instagram to respond to rumors, writing, "I can't stop the rumors from starting and I can't really change peoples minds who believe them, all I can do is sit back and laught at these low life people who have nothing better to do than talk about me." The post was later deleted.
While some assumed Beyonce was referring to the pregnancy rumors, others are saying that the pop superstar is responding to an interview that her uncle allegedly did with Celebuzz.
BEY'S UNCLE SPEAKS
In said interview, Bey's uncle Larry Beyince said that Beyonce's parents forced her into singing. He said, "It took away her whole childhood. Everything was geared toward being famous. She used to get angry at [her father] a lot for taking away her childhood. That affected her. I would prefer she was just my little niece, but she's a lot better off than most women."
On Beyonce firing her dad Mathew Knowles, Larry said, "I wasn't surprised she fired him [as her manager]. I'm glad, actually. One reason I was glad she got married is because she was no longer under her dad's control. He is a control freak."
On marrying Jay-Z, Bey's alleged uncle said, "He was after her and she wasn't. She told me she wasn't too particularly fond of him. I would see him with her and pictures of them, I heard rumors they were together and she told me 'no.' You know how women get that look like 'eww.' I guess she wasn't attracted to him. But as long as he treats her well and makes her happy, that's all I ever wanted. He's okay with me."
He continued, "I was surprised she married him. I think she got tired of being alone. When you have as much money as she does she has to be careful about people wanting her for her money. And apparently he had as much as she had.

Although she didn't get the part, Gabby went on to talk about how successful her fellow black actresses have been in the past couple of years.

'Person of Interest' is one of the top rated shows internationally, so my girl Taraji (P. Henson) is doing so well. And then all of the films that have come from the great work that she's done, and Kerry (Washington) with 'Scandal' and 'Django' and the whole world is like, Gladiator! And Thandie (Newton)'s show. I've big got shoes to fill, but it's dope."
