While rocking her Brooklyn Nets tee, Beyonce gave her Instagram followers a peek into her rehearsals for Superbowl 2013. Check the pics inside, plus the latest on that trademark problem The Carters faced over Baby Blue Ivy's name...
Looks like Bey is prepping for a big stage of dancers for her upcoming SuperBowl Halftime show in New Orleans next weekend. The diva who has weathered the Beyonce-Gate lipsyncing controversy this week seems to be only focused on work. She has yet to give a statement herself (but "sources" allegedly close to her have spoken out in support) on the drama.
Ne-Yo, who has written some of her biggest hits and a talented performer himself, commented that people are being too judgmental and need to shut up and enjoy the music. Especially since everyone knows what she's capable of.
''I didn't see the inauguration so I can't comment on her performance, but I will say that people can be so judgmental on anything an artist does, so of course Beyonce will be no exception to that rule. People are always going to be making comments, everybody is a damn expert at everything.
''You know what that woman is capable of, you know what she can do, so whether she's singing live or lip synching, whatever the case may be, just enjoy the damn music and shut up.
Totally agree. And instead of feeding the negativity, Beuonce's posted the above two pics from her rehearsal.
Meanwhile, the Washington Post reports that the judge in her and Jay-Z's trademark case for their daughter Blue Ivy's name has granted them the go-ahead to pursue it.
Previously, the couple hit a snag where the US trademark office put their application on hold as one merchant (a Boston wedding planner with the same name) was just granted a trademark. But since this will be a totally different category, The Carters have been officially given the green light to pursue.
Now, they just have to show the trademark is in use on products within the next 3 years, and the trademark filing is official.
Expect some Blue Ivy branded toddler & kid gear soon....
