That’s right: Superstar supermom Beyoncé is expecting her second child with hubby Jay-Z, multiple sources exclusively confirm to E! News.
The news follows rampant speculation that the “Countdown” songbird was pregnant, even as the couple remained tight-lipped about their ever-growing family.
Rumors first began churning that the Grammy winner was with child when, earlier this month, she walked the red carpet at the Met Gala wearing a custom-made Givenchy gown that deftly concealed her stomach, its bodice cinched high above the waist just as its intricate pattern made it difficult to discern any change in her silhouette.
Speculation then went into overdrive Tuesday after Beyoncé was forced to cancel her Mrs. Carter Show performance in Antwerp, Belgium, after doctors advised her to rest “as a result of dehydration and exhaustion.”
The 31-year-old recently spoke out about the possibility of giving 1-year-old Blue Ivy a sibling, telling ABC News that she “would like more children” and explaining that she thinks her daughter “needs some company.”
Looks like that company is coming sooner rather than later.
Congrats to the happy family!
Beyonce’s rep could not be reached for comment. Jay-Z’s rep had no comment.
Yesterday, our founder Waddie G. called into Da Doo-Dirty show to chat with radio shock jock DJ Baker about the never ending saga of Walter Hampton vs. Tyler Perry, but the conversation took a more interesting turn when DJ talked about the TV singing competition judges.
Though we know that the “American Idol” judges table will get a makeover for the 2014 season and Christina Aguilera will resume her role on “The Voice,” DJ and Waddie conjured up names whom they think is a great fit for “American Idol” “X-Factor and “The Voice.” Janet Jackson was the most debated name where DJ and his co-hosts thought she would be a great fit in contrary to Waddie’s disapproval.
Listen to the conversation below, and let us know whether you agree. Who would you pick as judges for the TV singing competition shows?
Hip-hop singing fashionista Teyana Taylor is loved wherever the party is, and sista girl is making her way down to the heat of Miami to celebrate with the ladies of Sizzle Her. Ms. Taylor is a long time ally of the LGBT community, so we always welcome her with open arms when she parties with our kind.
Teyana put together a promo reel of her own to let all her fans, especially the ladies, know that she will be in M.I.A. to celebrate the beginning of summer during Memorial weekend with them.
A couple years ago, we fell in love with the upgraded theme song to Lonnell Williams’ 3LWTV web series. Now, we have a new one to put on replay.
California vlogger Newnue (a.k.a. Lester Matthews) connected with our favorite R&B crooner Damien Crawford to jazz up his web series theme song. We must say that Crawford really delivered…as if we were expecting mediocrity…NOT!
What do you get when you put a catchy tune from our favorite crooner onto a show featuring one of our favorite personalities? A hot theme song, that is. Check it out below.

Of course, last night was about the TV season finales of “American Idol” and “Scandal,” but if you live in Chicago, you missed out on a fun time at the LGBTQ Professionals mixer hosted by B.Blyss! Productions. It is a monthly Thursday set where friends and new acquaintances gather to celebrate the ending of a work week and the beginning of the weekend.
The mixer hosted a beverage tasting sponsor by Passion XO liqueur. There were three delicious flavors that patrons sampled throughout the night. Our favorite one was the yellow – we forgot the actual flavor name, but it was good. It tasted even better in a mixed drink that included peach vodka and tea. YUM!
Check out the pictures taken from the event below.
Are you in Chicago tonight? Join The G-List Society for a good soul-singing concert at The Shrine in Chicago’s south loop where soul singers Kindred The Family Soul & Ledisi will be performing. Check out the details below as there are a few tickets still left for sale. Hurry up and buy your ticket before the show sells out.
Set to premiere this fall, check out the summary of this must-see Thursday night TV sitcom “Sean Saves The World” and its trailer below. ”Just Jack” is back! We’re kidding, but the breakout star of “Will & Grace” (Sean Hayes) is back on NBC with a lead role. Consider his character as the more mature, and still charismatic, version of Jack from “Will & Grace.” This will be the best replacement for the god awful “The New Normal.” #noshade
Sean’s a divorced gay dad who’s trying to juggle it all. From his overbearing boss and offbeat employees at work – to his pushy mom and weekends with his teenage daughter at home – handling it all is no easy task. So when Ellie, his 14-year-old bundle of joy, moves in full-time, it’s a whole new challenge.
Never one to do anything halfway, Sean’s intent on being the best dad ever – so he loads up on parenting how-to books and plans Pinterest-worthy family dinners. But it seems his company’s new owner has decided Sean and his team should work longer hours, throwing a kink in his perfectly constructed homemaking plans. Ellie, a normal girl who wants to hang with her friends and eat on the run, sees this development as a plus. She loves her dad, but he’s clearly going overboard.
From keeping his boss happy, his employees motivated and enduring his mother’s tactless “advice” to raising a smart, grounded and healthy kid, it’s going to be a growing experience, to say the least. But if anyone can swing it, it’s Sean.
Sean Hayes (“Will & Grace,” “Hot in Cleveland”) returns to NBC in a new comedy from executive writer/producer Victor Fresco (“Better Off Ted,” “Andy Richter Controls the Universe”) about work and family… the ultimate balancing act! Half-hour comedy (multi-camera).
Set to premiere this fall, check out the summary of this must-see Thursday night TV sitcom “The Michael J. Fox Show” and its trailer below. You read that right. The legendary Michael J. Fox is back, and he’s back for the first time in a leading role on NBC since his breakout role in the 80′s sitcom “Family Ties.”
Look who’s making the news again. One of New York’s most beloved news anchors, Mike Henry (Michael J. Fox), put his career on hold to spend more time with his family and focus on his health after he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. But now five years later, with the kids busy growing up and Mike growing restless, it just might be time for him to get back to work.
Having never wanted Mike to leave in the first place, his old boss Harris Green jumped at the chance to get him back on TV. The trick, as it’s always been, was to make Mike think it was his idea. After several – okay, many – failed attempts, Mike’s family, anxious to see him out of the house, finally succeeded in getting him to “run into” Green. Now their plan is in motion. He’ll be back to juggling home, family and career, just like the old days – only better.
Still got it… Michael J. Fox returns to NBC in a new comedy from writer and executive producer Sam Laybourne (“Cougar Town”) and executive producer Will Gluck (“Easy A”). Half-hour comedy (single-camera).
Set to premiere this fall, check out the summary of this must-see Wednesday night TV show “Ironside” and its trailer below. If you love a bad ass cop drama, like we do, and Blair Underwood’s great acting like we do, you will believe that this will be a show to look out for, like we do.
In the gritty world of the NYPD, no one’s tougher than Detective Robert Ironside. He’s a fearless cop who won’t stop until the guilty are brought to justice. He and his trusted, handpicked team of specialists will do whatever it takes to solve New York’s most difficult and notorious crimes – even if it means breaking the rules.
Tough, sexy and acerbic, Ironside’s never been afraid to call it like he sees it. As a detective, his instincts are second to none, and those around him have to stay on their toes if they want to keep up… because when his spine was shattered by a bullet two years ago, Ironside swore he’d never let a damn wheelchair slow him down.
Justice. Nothing gets in his way. Blair Underwood stars in a bold new drama about a different kind of cop. One-hour drama.
Set to premiere this fall, check out the summary of this must-see Friday night TV show “Dracula” and its trailer below. We have a feeling that this will be a break-out show for the fall season. From the preview, we get the vibes of the hit NBC show “Grimm” with the blockbuster film “The Great Gatsby.”
Golden Globe winner Jonathan Rhys Meyers (“The Tudors”) stars in this provocative new drama as one of the world’s most iconic characters.
It’s the late 19th century, and the mysterious Dracula has arrived in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. He’s especially interested in the new technology of electricity, which promises to brighten the night – useful for someone who avoids the sun. But he has another reason for his travels: he hopes to take revenge on those who cursed him with immortality centuries earlier. Everything seems to be going according to plan… until he becomes infatuated with a woman who appears to be a reincarnation of his dead wife.
From the producers of the critically acclaimed, Emmy Award-winning hit “Downton Abbey” comes “Dracula,” a twisted, sophisticated and sexy take on Bram Stoker’s classic novel, proving that some stories never die. One-hour drama.
Set to premiere this fall, check out the summary of this must-see Thursday night TV show “Welcome To The Family” and its trailer below.
After four years of barely getting by in school, Dan and Caroline Yoder are thrilled when their daughter Molly is handed her high school diploma. Now it’s off to Arizona State for Molly, and a mid-life renaissance for the Yoders (which includes turning Molly’s room into their dream fitness center).
At the same time in East LA, Junior Hernandez is delivering his valedictorian address. As the first of his family to go to college (Stanford!), Junior’s the pride and joy of parents Miguel and Lisette. But Junior’s barely into his speech before he gets an unexpected text: “i’m pregnant.” The sender? Miss Molly Yoder. OMG/Dios Mio!
What follows is the ultimate culture crash as Molly and Junior decide to get hitched, bringing two very different families together in a way they never imagined. Dan and Miguel, who already have a history, do NOT see eye to eye. But more importantly, what about Stanford? Arizona State? Who’s going to raise the baby? And oh no – what about the fitness center?! For the sake of their kids (and the one on the way) they’ll have to somehow make it all work… like it or not.
From writer and executive producer Mike Sikowitz (“Rules of Engagement”), comes a comedy that proves: Life is full of unexpected little bumps. Half-hour comedy (single camera).
On Thursday, we premiered the two minute PSA/visual presentation that was the collaborative product of Chicago video blogger Ken Like Barbie and me. This project, in which I named Au Courant Collaboration, was two months in the making. I must admit, we both were nervous because we knew the standard of expected excellence was high for the both of us. We were not only representing The G-List Society, but also individual brands and our supporters.
Within minutes of its release, it traveled from coast-to-coast. The reviews ranged from “I had to play it about 5 times; it was so full of energy and a wonderful 2:14 intro to you and your column/blog. Vibrant, full of character, pulling the viewer in to want to know you and your mission…BRAVA” to feedback more technical such as “Great choice of music, robust energy, fashion, conviction, I wanna come to Chicago and see what the night life has to offer more than ever now lol..” Impressive!!!! This feedback was humbling to me because it was given by people whom I hold high regard for. Both personally and professionally, they are not prone to “bullshit or that which is mediocre.”
Here at The G-List Society, our mantra is to accept your endowment. Embrace the talents you’ve been given. Perfect your skill set then use it as a means to leave a mark. We strongly believe that our mission is divinely orchestrated and that which is blessed by the Devine cannot be deterred by man…We “flyy” above. Hope you enjoy the video and see ya next week… Deo
