Beyoncé’s Twins are Here!!

BEYONCÉ’s twins are here, but that’s where the information stops. Because all anyone has to go on is a Tweet from her dad MATHEW KNOWLES that said, “Happy birthday to the twins! Love, Granddad.”

As for when she gave birth . . . it seems based on that Tweet that it happened yesterday. But TMZ claims she popped ’em out last Monday, and there’s some sort of issue that’s kept them in the hospital all this time.

Supposedly, it’s just a minor issue, and the twins are expected to be okay . . . doctors just didn’t feel comfortable releasing them right away.

As far as WHAT descended from the Queen’s golden uterus, there’s evidence it may have been a boy AND a girl. A woman was seen carrying two baby balloons into UCLA Medical Center: One pink, one blue . . . with a card for “B & J”.

As you obviously know, because it’s impossible to live on the planet Earth in 2017 and NOT know, Beyoncé and JAY Z also have a 5-year-old daughter named Blue Ivy.

In related news, Jay is releasing a “visual album” like Beyoncé’s “Lemonade” on June 30th. It’s called “4:44”, and it stars Mahershala Ali, Lupita Nyong’o and Danny Glover.


Michael Phelps Is Racing a Great White Shark for ‘Shark Week’


MICHAEL PHELPS has dominated every human he’s raced against, so now he’s taking on another SPECIES.  He’s racing a GREAT WHITE SHARK for Discovery Channel’s ‘Shark Week.’

The press release calls it “Great Gold vs. Great White” . . . and says, quote, “[Sharks] are one of the fastest and most efficient predators on the planet.  [Michael Phelps] is our greatest champion to ever get in the water . . .

“But he has one competition left to win.  An event so monumental no one has ever attempted it before.  Phelps v. Shark . . . the race is on!”

So, will Michael and the shark be swimming side-by-side, separated only by a floating lane marker?  Probably not. 

There aren’t any details on HOW the race will be set up . . . so we don’t know if they’ll be swimming in the same place, let alone at the same TIME.  Maybe it’ll be lame, and Michael will just time himself against a shark’s average speed.

The “race” might have just filmed in South Africa.  Last week, Michael posted a photo of a shark, and captioned it, quote, “I was able to do something that I had always wanted to do.  Be in a cage and dive with Great White sharks.”

The race will air on Sunday, July 23rd, which is also the first day of Shark Week.
