Beyonce talks being pregnant "God has blessed me with the biggest gift that any human being can have"

In this recent Beyonce interview, she talks about feeling the time was right to have a baby, she talks about Jay Z and needing to take a year off.

Is having a baby going to change your life?
Absolutely, it has already changed my life. My husband and I have been together for 10 years for all of my twenties-since I was 20 and we just feel like it’s time. I’m very grateful that God has blessed me with the biggest gift that any human being can have. I think because I’ve accomplished a lot of things for myself and I really know who I am. I didn’t rush into anything and I feel like if it’s any time, right now is the time and I’m so happy.
Michael Jackson was your inspiration?
Beyond. How old was I? Five years old and it was my first concert and it was his show and that night I decided my purpose. He’s the reason I do what I do, because I would have never experienced that magic if it wasn’t for him.

VIDEO: Beyonce talks motherhood & Jay Z "My husband and I have been together for 10 years"

How did you come with the idea to reveal your pregnancy at the 2011 VMAs?
I dreamt it actually. There were so many rumors about me being pregnant every three months for the past couple of years. I thought the best way and the classiest way was to just show it. My husband and I have been together for ten years so I guess people felt apart of it and it makes me feel really good.
On Jay-Z’s reaction
I couldn’t see that in real life but I did see it on a bunch of TV specials. I couldn’t escape it, so it was nice.
On what this year means to her
You know I just feel like I’ve been through everything in my life is all for right now. Hopefully life will continue to get better and I’ll continue to get stronger and be an incredible mother.



Ice-T disses Rick Ross & Lil Wayne "Rick Ross stole a n*ggas name, who the f*ck are you really?"

Rapper Ice-T had some not so nice words about Rick Ross and Lil Wayne, He basically called them liars and frauds, some also feel he's throwing a jab at Jay Z, but i'm not gonna co-sign that, Ice didn't say Jay's name and he's never been one to throw subliminals, if he's talking about you, he'll say your name.
“That’s fake,” Ice-T blurts out. “Rick Ross stole a n****’s name. I call him ‘Identity Crisis.’ He thinks he’s [Freeway] Rick Ross, he thinks he’s Larry Hoover, he thinks he’s Big Meech, he thinks he’s MC Hammer, he thinks he’s Tupac. Like, who the f*ck are you really, dude?”
“When we rapped about dope— me, Snoop and everybody—it was like we doin’ it because we GOT to. Now these n***** is actin’ like it’s somethin’ that’s FUN. It’s so easy to fantasize about it. To actively do it? That’s a whole ‘nother f*ckin’ thing.
“Rap is pop right now. Q-Tip said, ‘Rap is not pop. If you call it that, then stop.’ Rap was a counterculture that went against pop. But when you have Rihanna singin’ on your records and you’re doin’ records with Katy Perry, that’s no longer rap. It’s pop music, pop using rap delivery. When you hear Lil Wayne sayin’ ‘I got a chopper in the car,’ you go, ‘Yeah, right you do.‘” (Ice-T)
