Hot Shots: Beyonce, Jay-Z, Mary J & LA Reid Pose At Book Launch

Power couple Beyonce and Jay-Z led a host of music royals in celebrating the launch of ‘The Thriving Child’ – a parenting book by Erica Reid, the wife of Epic Records head LA Reid.

The trendy event, which was also attended by Mary J. Blige, was a break of of sorts for 30 year old Beyonce. For, the megastar is in intense rehearsals for her series of comeback shows at the Revel resort in New Jersey at the end of the month. As reported, overwhelming demand has seen another date added to the hotly anticipated showcase.

Peep more pics from last night’s New York event below…

    Everyone is dressed appropriately and THEN there was Beyonce’s PET CAMEL! 0_O

    Bey looks cute but needs a little something around her eyes! I love the teal colored dress. You don’t see that “Crayola color” anymore (yes, I said Crayola you use to color too….LOL)! And why is he touching her face all of a sudden? You never see PDA from him……hummm, I wonder what part of the game he’s playing today?

    I can’t with MJB (crispy chicken wrap) and those “cat-eye” glasses and side swing hairdo! She SLAYED the NATIONAL ANTHEM at the Derby though and looked good doing it! 🙂

    @ KATDELUNA your man or your woman probably never watch your face hence the reason you have made that statement.

    Beyonce looks great. I like the fact the she is a lot more simple on her makeup, unlike some celebs that always have to be caked to be seen beautiful. umm.

    @OH BABY I hope that stomach keeps sinking in. She needs these 6 pack back!

    Wow some of you are reading too much into that Jay Z pic with his wife. It looked like a moment caught on camera. It’s cute! damn! Every little thing doesn’t have to be analyzed.

    Bey looks so adorable. I love her natural (and made up, for that matter). I think her mama looks really older woman hot too! Good Genes!

    I don’t like Mary’s look. I wonder if she’s being styled by June. I don’t like it, Mary can do better.

    Once upon a time, Michael Jackson had a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles, he lived in an amusement park, slept in an oxygen chamber and went from Wesley Snipes to Clay Aiken in a matter of years.

    Elvis Presley was larger than life, the Beatles only traveled by Yellow Submarine and Lady Gaga was born from a giant egg at the Grammys. So what’s wrong with Jay-Z and Beyonce?

    Today’s most successful and powerful couple are well … normal. Instead of going to the Grammys to watch Nicki Minaj bring the Vatican to music’s biggest stage, they went to a local pizzeria and watched the Grammys there. Huh? No big giant party with an endless supply of Ace Of Spades? Where they do that at?

    In Brooklyn apparently, because while it was reported that Beyonce was going to take Blue Ivy Carter on a yoga retreat in Tuscany, Italy – a lavish private resort where babies and parents can be awesome together – it seems like Italy has moved to Brooklyn. Instead of wine country, Blue Ivy has been getting a nice tour of Prospect Park in BK.

    You see, it turns out that all celebrities who climb to the top of their lanes aren’t drugged out weirdos who have a fetish for self destructive habits and weird sh*t.

    Beyonce and Jay-Z are actually quite normal. Jay-Z watches rappers on YouTube and Beyonce may or may not breast feed in public. She had a natural birth, takes care of her baby and goes to see The-Dream without make up and still looks beautiful keeping it casual.

    Just goes to show you, being super rich and famous doesn’t mean you have to lose who you are. Jay-Z is still friends with the same people who he hung with in Marcy and Beyonce is still, well, Beyonce. Now, what’s so wrong with that? I’m just waiting for Jay-Z to be spotted walking through Brooklyn with Blue Ivy strapped to his chest. Now that’s swag!

    Unquestionably consider that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be at the net the easiest thing to take note of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed whilst other people think about worries that they just don’t know about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top as neatly as outlined out the entire thing with no need side effect , other folks could take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thanks
