Beyoncé & JAY Z Host ‘Carter Push Party’ Baby Shower

Beyoncé and JAY Z hosted a festive, themed baby shower on Saturday (May 20), in honor of their soon-to-be born twin babies. The superstar couple celebrated with friends and family at the “Carter Push Party” in Beverly Hills.

Queen Bey’s mother, Tina Lawson, shared some video and photos from the star-studded event, which was designed with an African theme and held at a private residence that was once owned by Madonna. The A-list guests included Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams, La La Anthony, Serena Williams and more.

Beyoncé showed off her gorgeous baby bump, which was painted with henna tattoos by an artist that was hired for the event. At the entrance of the home, gold balloon letters spelled out “Carter Push Party” and “Twinning.”

After the shower, an insider revealed to E! News details from the baby shower. “The party was very family friendly with Blue Ivy and lots of her friends running around the grounds of the estate. There was a huge tent erected on the property where most of the shower took place. The decor was African themed and very colorful with lounge seating areas, floor pillows and rugs on the floor.”

“The tables had lanterns, wooden elephants and pink and white roses for centerpieces. There was also a henna tattoo artist and African dancers and drummers walking around. A huge soul food buffet was served for a late lunch,” added the source.

The party was geared to both grown-ups and children, the outside bash being the pool party for kids, with lifeguards, pool rafts, a lemonade bar and other toys for the kids. There was also an inside set-up for the adults.

It’s unclear when Beyoncé is due to deliver the twins, but TMZ reported that her father, Mathew Knowles, said that the babies are more than two weeks away from their due date.

Beyoncé, Bruno Mars Lead 2017 BET Awards Nominations

The nominations are in for the 2017 BET Awards, and it’s to little surprise that Beyoncé is reigning supreme.

Queen Bey leads the pack with seven noms, including Album of the Year (Lemonade), Video of the Year (“Sorry”), Best Female R&B/Pop Artist, Best Collaboration (“Freedom” with Kendrick Lamar), and more.

Mr. 24k, Bruno Mars follows right behind Bey with five noms, including Album of the Year (24K Magic), Video of the Year (“24K Magic”), and Best Male R&B/Pop Artist. But competition is stiff this year. Chance the Rapper, Solange, and Migos are all tied with four nods apiece.

Arguably the night’s biggest award, Album of the Year, features Beyoncé and Mars, as well as Solange’s A Seat at the Table, J. Cole’s 4 Your Eyez Only, and Chance the Rapper’s Coloring Book.

The Knowles sisters will also take on Mary J. Blige, Rihanna, and Kehlani for Best Female R&B/Pop Artist. Bruno will battle Chris Brown, The Weeknd, Trey Songz, and Usher for Best Male R&B/Pop Artist.

Last year, Beyoncé opened the BET Awards with a surprise performance of “Freedom” with Kendrick Lamar. Queen Bey also won five awards at the event, including Best Female R&B Pop Artist.

The 17th annual BET Awards will air live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on June 25 at 8 p.m. ET. The ceremony will follow the BET Experience at L.A. Live, which is scheduled to run June 22-25.

See the list of nominations below.

Destiny’s Child was back together again on Saturday night (Apr. 29).

Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams all attended Tina Lawson’s inaugural Wearable Art Gala at the California African American Museum in Los Angeles.

Hov rocked a dapper white and black suit with a beaded bear on the back, Beyoncé wore an elaborate floral crown, and stunned in a silky red dress showing off her baby bump.

Kelly Rowland wore a lavish lavender Monsoori gown with Jon Buscemi sneakers underneath, and brought along her 2-year-old son Titan as her date. Meanwhile, Michelle Williams wore an absolutely beautiful Esé Azénabor hand beaded gown with floral designs. They weren’t the only members of DC in attendance either. Letoya Luckett was photographed with Michelle and actress Meagan Good, wearing a colorful piece of wearable art as well and a lace veil over her eyes.

On Sunday (Apr. 30), Beyonce shared a sweet and encouraging message to her mother on Instagram. “I am super proud of my beautiful mother for creating such an awesome event,” wrote Bey. “Close to $1 million was raised for The WACO Theater Center to benefit young people through their mentorship programs and the arts. Mom, you inspire us all to be generous, selfless, positive, to have empathy, to love and to praise creativity in the world. It brought tears to my eyes to be a witness to what you and Richard have created together. WACO is a safe place truly Where Art Can Occur. I love you.”

The pregnant superstar showed off her growing belly in a series of new photographs on Instagram. Looking stylish in knee-high boots, sunglasses, and a flowy dress, ‘Yoncé continued somewhat of a trend that she’s been showcasing on social media.

Unfortunately, the ladies haven’t let on to any chance of a DC reunion. In April of last year, Kelly said the girls haven’t discussed it yet. “We haven’t talked about it,” she said. “I’ll see Michelle tomorrow or the next day and the last time me and Bey were together was like two weeks ago when I stopped by rehearsals. We talk about everything else. We really, really do. We talk about playdates with the kids and vacations and new opportunities.”

Queen Bey made a young girls dream come true on Wednesday (March 22).

A high school senior in Houston, Tex. received the surprise of her life when Beyoncé called her on Facetime. The young girl, Ebony Banks, is battling a rare form of cancer, which has progressed to stage four.

“I love you Beyoncé,” said Banks as she chatted with her idol from the hospital. A smiling Bey waved back and replied, “I love you.”
