Beyonce and Blue Ivy at the Video Music Awards
The annual MTV Video Music Awards were last night in Manhattan, and if you thought Beyonce would use the occasion to jam her immense wealth down our throats in the most obscene way possible, you're exactly right. Her 4-year-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter wore an $11k dress. I haven't even bought $11k worth of clothes in my lifetime and I'm 30 years older than that little shit. From Page Six
Appropriately dubbed the "Grand Royalle," Blue Ivy's floor-length dress by luxe children's designer Mischka Aoki costs a whopping $10,950 at Bergdorf Goodman, Page Six has confirmed. The extravagant creation features a leatherette gold metallic laser-cut bodice and intricate 3D gold metallic applique.
Little Blue rocked tiny pink sneakers underneath her billowing skirt. Mischka Aoki is a favorite of the fashionable toddler's -- she recently wore an $820 skirt by the designer.
Blue Ivy may think she's better than me because she's rocking $11k dresses, but I haven't pooped my pants in, like, a decade. What do you have to say about that, Blue?

Not Mildly Surprising

This ridiculous house may be $10k/night, but there's no way Beyonce paid that. Beyonce doesn't post a picture on Facebook and then mention the name of your company for free. Beyonce doesn't do anything for free. Beyonce doesn't even take a shit for free. "Whew, I just had a bowel movement larger than the trunk space in the all new Ford Taurus with APR as low as 0.9% for 36 months -- check your local dealer."*7 pictures total in the gallery:
Beyonce at the Tidal X: 1020 charity concert in Brooklyn
Everyone's forgotten about Jay-Z's music streaming service Tidal (including Jay-Z himself
), but Beyonce's not giving up so easily. She went full sideboob at the Tidal concert in Brooklyn last night. And now, look, I'm writing about Tidal. All because of Beyonce. She needs this to be a success, dammit. "I'm not letting that white devil bitch Taylor Swift outearn me!" - Beyonce probably thought to herself before the event last night. Shocking stuff, really. I've always thought of Beyonce as being more tolerant than that. I just lost a lot of respect for her. Sad.

Beyonce on Ile Sainte-Marguerite
Here's the newest feature we're rolling out on Celebslam: Rich people doing rich people things. Basically it's a bunch of rich people doing rich people things. Like Beyonce, Jay-Z, and friends docking their yacht and visiting Ile Sainte-Marguerite earlier this week. Oh splendid. My absolute favorite island off Cannes. READER TIP
: Don't forget to try the bouillabaisse at Escale when you visit Sainte Marguerite. Pair it with a '04 Dom Perignon. To die for!

Beyonce off the Amalfi Coast in Italy
Here's Beyonce taking a tender to her yacht off the Amalfi Coast in Italy last week. Nothing. I understood nothing about that last sentence. Actually, check that: week. I at least know that a week
is a unit of time. So aside from that word, I understood nothing.

Beyonce leaving an office building in New York
Oh look, there's a candid picture of Beyonce drinking a Slurpee while leaving an office building in New York yesterday, label perfectly centered just by chance. It definitely doesn't look like 7-Eleven execs spent the last six months choreographing this. But seriously, Beyonce just made more for this picture than I'll make for the next 15 years combined. My lifetime Slurpee balance sheet is right around -$125. Beyonce's is +$2,000,000. Fuck her.

Jay-Z and Beyonce leaving the Royal Monceau Hotel in Paris
Beyonce and Jay-Z are getting just a little bit full of themselves. They had the entrance to the Royal Monceau Hotel in Paris tarped off so all the mouth breathers on the street couldn't catch a glimpse of them. Because, um, then people would know what they look like? Did they tarp off Google as well? Seriously, you're not that important.*5 pictures total in the gallery:
