Music News: Rihanna Signs to Roc Nation & Creates “Rihanna Entertainment”

The Grammy-winning pop singer has parted ways with manager Marc Jordan and is now being managed by Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Management

So with the worldwide promotion of her upcoming album ‘Loud’ becoming a success, Rihanna has been making some serious future decisions in regards to her career.

According to The Associated Press, It looks like Riri is back in the arms (Beyoncé‘s place) or should we say under the wings of the one and only Jay-Z. And why? Because she has decided to join Willow Smith and others under Roc Nation management!

Rihanna is now under Jay-Z’s umbrella

Rihanna told The Associated Press in a statement Wednesday (Oct.20) that she’s “so excited to take this next step in my career.”

The 22-year-old is also launching a new company called, Rihanna Entertainment. She says it will “merge all of her businesses, including music, film, fragrance fashion and book ventures.”

Jay-Z signed Rihanna to Def Jam in 2005. The two won a Grammy in 2008 for the hit song “Umbrella.” Earlier this year, the pair picked up two Grammys for the rap song “Run This Town,” which also featured Kanye West.

Talking about the first time he met Rihanna, Jay-Z say he signed her only hours after seeing her audition:

“We signed her that night — 3 in the morning was when that contract got signed. We wouldn’t let her leave the office. From meeting her at 4 [p.m.] in the office till 3 in the morning, I was absolutely certain. That doesn’t happen too often.”

Rihanna however remembers the meeting a little bit differently saying she was super nervous:

“When we first got there, I was shaking. I had never met a celebrity, and to have to audition for one and meet him at the same time … I was hysterical. But the minute I went in the office, it was totally different. He was so welcoming; the environment was so warm and friendly. The jitters just went away immediately.”

So Jay-Z has always had a hand in Rihanna’s career and he rhymed on her biggest hit “Umbrella.” So it looks like the Roc fam is sticking together beyond Def Jam.

She’s released four albums and plans to release her fifth CD, “Loud,” on Nov. 16.

Beyoncé & Jay-Z expecting their first child!



Beyoncé pregnant!… The debate has been sparked back up again. She’s been through her fair share of baby rumors, and now there’s a report in Us Weekly, citing sources saying that the pop queen Beyoncé and her hip-hop mogul husband Jay-Z are expecting.

According to the source, the 29-year-old singer is pregnant with her first child and no one was more surprised than Beyoncé herself.

“B was shocked,” the source is quoted as saying. “She loves kids, but she wasn’t ready to be a mother just yet. She really wanted to get her album done and tour the world again.” Another insider says that the singer is in her first trimester, and realizes that “this is a gift from God and she’s so happy.”

Adding legitimacy to the reports are quotes from Beyonce’s sister Solange, who say’s Beyoncé has “the most beautiful heart, she’ll be a great mom,” and record executive Kevin Liles, who has known Jay-Z for years and is quoted as saying,

“Jay has been all about family since I met him, and he’s always going to be, I wish them the best.”

But is it true? This will be the question asked many times over in the coming days and weeks, so tell us what you think. Is Beyoncé pregnant? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.

Beyoncé & Jay-Z Take Miami


Fresh from a disappointing night at the Yankees stadium, Jay-Z jetted off to Miami, Florida where he and Beyoncé were spotted earlier today (October 20).

The “Run This Town” rapper and his beautiful “If I Were a Boy” singer wife looked lovely with Jay in a suit and tie and Beyoncé in a flashy red dress.

In case you haven’t heard, the famous couple is reportedly expecting their first child together, UsWeekly reported today.

Of the pregnancy, a friend of Beyonce’s told the magazine, “B was shocked. She loves kids, but she wasn’t ready to be a mother just yet.”

Jay-Z Can’t Help Yankees


Trying to help the Bronx Bombers pull off a win, Jay-Z and Leonardo DiCaprio were spotted at the New York Yankees baseball game (Tuesday, October 19).

The Jay-Z and DiCaprio both looked focused and frustrated as the boys in pinstripes put forth a miserable effort.

As for their accommodations, Jay and Leo watched the game from the front row in box seats owned by Alex Rodriguez.

And in the end, there wasn’t enough celebrity power to help the home team, as the Yankees lost 10-3, putting them down 3-1 against the Rangers in the ALCS Championships.

Even the heavy New York City winds couldn’t dim the star power at Keep a Child Alive’s 7th Annual Black Ball at Hammerstein Ballroom on Thursday night (Sept. 30). The star-studded charity gala, which raised money for HIV/AIDS treatment, featured appearances and performances by Sade, Whitney Houston, Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Usher, Swizz Beatz, Jennifer Hudson, Janelle Monáe, and more.

The belle of the ball, host Alicia Keys, lived out her dream by singing with Sade. “It was the most difficult thing I ever had to do in my life, to try to pick one song,” revealed the pregnant songstress, who finally decided upon “Love Is Stronger Than Pride.” “I lost sleep over it actually.”

Janelle Monáe gained new fans with her “Tightrope” walking and Swizz Beatz joined Jay-Z for “On to the Next One,” as his pretty in pink wife looked on. Alicia helped Jay cap the evening in their hometown by channeling Frank Sinatra with an impromptu performance of “New York, New York,” before closing with “Empire State of Mind.”

Keep a Child Alive charity brought in a little over $2.4 million for children and families affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India.

Check out some more photos and a few videos from the event below….

Together, The-Dream and Tricky produced Rihanna’s 2007 hit “Umbrella” and Beyoncé‘s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)”, which boosted The-Dream‘s music career.
