Does Beyoncé have a secret archive of celebrity throwback photos? 

Beyoncé is a curated queen, and as much is evident on her Instagram page. It is, for the most part, a collection of highly professional photos of Bey and her every show-stopping outfit, often uploaded in sets of threes—like a good influencer does.

However, there is one notable exception to Yoncé’s enigmatic social media veil: her birthday tributes. Bey loves to celebrate her famous friends, but she’s not one to post a selfie and call it a day. No, the living legend has a very precise method for her birthday tributes, and it certainly bucks tradition.

Taking the Bey out of B-day, the singer posts solo shots of her friends… as children. And it’s really cute, don’t get us wrong, but, like, where does she find all these photos? She’s Beyoncé, so we don’t doubt she has connections, but we prefer to believe that she is somehow, secretly, the owner of a celebrity throwback photo archive (and museum, maybe?) consisting of millions of never-before-seen retro shots.

Though she’s experimented with this method in the past (see below for baby Oprah circa 2015, and lil’ Solange in 2013 and 2015), she’s really upped her game in the past few months, posting tributes for Michelle Obama, Oprah, Kelly Rowland, and a commemorative series for the late Kim Porter.

So, the question remains: Why does Beyoncé choose to celebrate the women in her life with childhood photos? I’m no psychology expert, but my theory is that it has something to do with being a child star herself. Since she rose to superstardom as a teen, maybe she idealizes her childhood as a time that she was able to be and feel her true self, away from the flashbulbs and materialism that naturally seep into celebrity life? ~Just a thought~.

Anyway, celebrity aside, childhood is thought of as the most innocent and therefore truest time in one’s life, and perhaps Bey’s just trying to showcase who her famous friends are at heart. See me after class for more theories.

Thank you for the tribute posts, Bey. We can’t wait to see what adorable throwbacks you unearth next.

Jeff Bezos Publishes Emails From National Enquirer Threatening to Leak Salacious Photos

The dispute between Jeff Bezos and the National Enquirer just took an appropriately tabloid-ish turn.

In a detailed essay posted to Medium, the 55-year-old Amazon founder and owner of The Washington Post alleged that The National Enquirer recently threatened to release racy photos of Bezos and girlfriend Lauren Sanchez. Bezos described the attempt as “extortion and blackmail.”

“I was made an offer I couldn’t refuse,” Bezos wrote. “Or at least that’s what the top people at the National Enquirer thought. I’m glad they thought that, because it emboldened them to put it all in writing.” He added: “I’ve decided to publish exactly what they sent me, despite the personal cost and embarrassment they threaten.”

Bezos then printed an email exchange, purportedly from Dylan Howard, an employee at American Media, Inc. (AMI), the company that owns the National Enquirer. In the message, Howard notes the publication had acquired several potentially embarrassing photos of Bezos and Sanchez, including “a full-length scantily-clad body shot [of Bezos] with short trunks” and “a naked selfie in a bathroomwhile wearing his wedding ring.”

AMI chairman and CEO David Pecker is a long-time friend of President Donald Trump. Last year, Pecker received immunity for testifying in a federal investigation into his role in payments made to two women who claimed to have had affairs with the president.

Pecker has also sought to forge deep connections with businesses in Saudi Arabia. Bezos said he’d been informed that Pecker was “apoplectic” about the Post‘s recent investigation into the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi. “We were approached, verbally at first, with an offer,” Bezos wrote. “They said they had more of my text messages and photos that they would publish if we didn’t stop our investigation.”

Instead, Bezos decided to pre-emptively publish descriptions of the embarrassing materials himself.

Bezos’ missive is the latest in a lengthy feud between the Amazon honcho and the popular supermarket tabloid. Last month, after months of research, the Enquirer published an investigation detailing an affair between Bezos and Sanchez, a news personality and pilot. The report, which included several steamy texts between the couple, was released shortly after Bezos announced he’d split from MacKenzie Bezos, his wife of 25 years.

Earlier this week, the Bezos-owned Washington Post published its own investigation into the Enquirer‘s investigation, trying to determine whether the piece was a “political hit” on Bezos, and how his personal messages were compromised.

The Post‘s coverage apparently didn’t please representatives of the Enquirer. In his essay, Bezos also included an email purportedly sent by an American Media lawyer, demanding a “mutually-agreed upon acknowledgment from the Bezos Parties, released through a mutually-agreeable news outlet, affirming that they have no knowledge or basis for suggesting that AM’s coverage was politically motivated or influenced by political forces.”

Bezos has strived in the past to distance himself from the work of the Post, in order to maintain the paper’s objectivity. He notably published his column not in the newspaper, but on the independently owned website Medium.

But Bezos acknowledged that his ownership of the paper “is a complexifier for me,” adding: “It’s unavoidable that certain powerful people who experience Washington Post news coverage will wrongly conclude I am their enemy. President Trump is one of those people, obvious by his many tweets.”

Still, Bezos wrote, he was determined not to back down on his dealings with tabloid. “Any personal embarrassment AMI could cause me takes a back seat because there’s a much more important matter involved here,” he wrote. “If in my position I can’t stand up to this kind of extortion, how many people can?” He ended his essay with a determined salvo: “I prefer to stand up, roll this log over, and see what crawls out.”

Jussie Smollett Hate Crime Investigation Update — Chicago Police Are Expanding Their Search, Unable to Find Video or Photos of Assailants

The Chicago Police Department has issued a statement with an update on their investigation into Jussie Smollett’s racist and homophobic attack. 

The FBI has taken over the investigation related to the threatening letter Jussie received last week, but as far as the actual attack itself police have been canvassing the area looking for surveillance footage.

TMZ reports that police visited a Target store near where the incident happened and they were able to retrieve some footage. A source says the footage shows just one person — presumably Jussie — walking down the street.

Anthony Guglielmi, Chief Communications Officer, tweeted that the department is expanding its search radius after being unable to find video or photos of the alleged attackers or any vehicles.

We’ll keep you updated as the investigation unfolds.

Women are posting photos of their underwear online in response to this shocking Irish rape trial

#ThisIsNotConsent

REX

Words by Niamh McCollum

Activists in Ireland have taken to social media to post photos of their underwear after attention was drawn to a female complainant’s thong during a rape trial in Cork, Ireland.

In the female defence barrister’s closing speech, she asked the jury to consider the 17 year old’s choice of underwear during their final determination. She stated: ‘You have to look at the way she was dressed. She was wearing a thong with a lace front.’

The accused was subsequently acquitted.

The events of this trial have led to outcry across Ireland, with many women engaging in a viral social media campaign, surfacing on Twitter and Instagram.

Under the hashtag #ThisIsNotConsent, women have been posting photographs of their own underwear in all shapes, colours and materials.

The campaign is to protest the use of such a technique in court, which allows for victims’ underwear to be passed around as evidence.

Here are some of the most powerful images we’ve seen from this vibrant campaign…

The hashtag was created by a Facebook group called Mna na hEireann (Women of Ireland).

Attention was also drawn to the issue by Irish politician Ruth Coppinger, who held up a lace thong in the Irish Parliament during Leader’s Questions yesterday.

While holding the blue lacy underwear, she said: ‘It might seem embarrassing to show a pair of thongs here…how do you think a rape victim or a woman feels at the incongruous setting of her underwear being shown in a court?’

Since when did the shape or material of a woman’s underwear determine the issue of consent?!

Fiery females of Ireland, roar louder!

Tokyo Toni was determined to celebrate her granddaughter’s second birthday — despite not being allowed to see her.

Instead, Blac Chyna’s mom went down to her local Party City and bought a bouquet of balloons.

Most people would’ve just had balloons sent to the birthday girl, but not Toni. She decided to have a balloon-releasing ceremony in front of the Party City.

“Happy Birthday Dream! It’s your second birthday! Let’s hope this balloon gets to you,” Toni exclaimed in the video.

We just…don’t even know what to say here. Check out the video below.
