QUEEN BEY IS PREGNANT! WE ARE EXPECTING TWINS! Yes, we!

As you know, Beyoncé announced via Instagram that she and Jay Z are expecting twins (and the photo is now the most-liked photo on IG EVER) – but what does this mean for her upcoming Coachella performance in April?

Sources report that Coachella organizers were in the dark about the pregnancy, and they’re concerned about what will happen. Bey‘s first pregnancy was high-risk and required bed rest and that was 5 years ago, and now this will likely be more high-risk. However, Bey still plans to perform, should all go well. Fingers crossed!

Check out some more of Bey‘s pregnancy photos below, along with the rest of today’s biggest stories!

Charles Barkley continues to poke at LeBron James, and finally, he’s clapping back. After Barkley‘s most recent criticism of LeBron included calling him “whiny,” LeBron had quite a mouthful:

“I’m not going to let him disrespect my legacy like that. I’m not the one who threw somebody through a window. I never spit on a kid. I never had unpaid debt in Las Vegas.

prince

According to a new report, Prince‘s music will begin streaming on all prominent streaming platforms beginning on February 12. Previously, the late singer’s legendary catalog was only available on Jay Z‘s TIDAL, but following a lawsuit from his estate after his death last spring, a change is on the horizon.

“The switch gets turned on for everybody during the Grammys,” a source told the Post. The deal only includes Prince’s releases on Warner Bros., however, as the music outside of his Warner contract and unreleased albums are still being negotiated.

An official announcement hasn’t been made just yet, but Spotify is certainly hinting at it. Check out the picture below, along with the rest of today’s biggest stories.
