The Beyhive lashes out at Matthew Knowles over twins post
The Beyhive is exercising its stingers. After Beyonce's dad, Matthew Knowles, shared an excited post about the arrival of Bey and Jay Z's twins over the weekend, Bey's fans went a bit berserk on Twitter, since the singer herself had yet to make a public statement about the babies. "They're here!" he captioned a photo of balloons and a card that read "happy birthday to the twins! Love granddad." Matthew added hashtags to the post, shouting out Beyonce and Jay Z. The innocent work of a proud grandpa, right? Not according to the Beyhive. As HuffPo points out, fans quickly began posting memes and chastising Matthew with comments like "Just had to ruin it for Bey did you," "You even using hashtags….if you gotta hashtag ya own child name and put your Instagram name on her news it says a lot on yalls closeness" and "Who gave your old washed up a– the right? Imma need to see a written & signed consent form from Bey herself saying this post was approved." Ouch.

Jay Z is now officially JAY-Z
In other Bey and Jay news, Jay Z has announced he's changing his name … sort of. According to Vulture, the artist formerly known as Jay-Z is now also formerly known as Jay Z, thanks to his new name, JAY-Z. The change appears to be connected with news that Jay — sorry JAY's new alum, "4:44" will land next Friday, although he's given little indication of why he reintroduced the hyphen and went all caps. Maybe Matthew Knowles will tweet an explanation …

Kevin Federline opens up about co-parenting kids with Britney Spears and Shar Jackson
For Kevin Federline, fatherhood is a juggling act — but it's a happy one. The DJ and budding rapper spoke with Bravo's Personal Space recently, opening up about the challenges of co-parenting children from previous relationships. Kevin, who shares daughters Jordan and Peyton, with his wife Victoria Prince, co-parents his son Kaleb, 12, and daughter Kori, 14, with his ex-fiancée Shar Jackson, while he and Britney Spears share sons Jayden, 10, and Preston, 11. "You fall into your routine and it's really easy now. It wasn't always easy, but it's a lot easier now," he said in reference to his relationships with his exes (via E! News). "I'm used to not having all my kids, and this is gonna be one of those years. When you are co-parenting, you have to be willing to give up some of the things you would really like to do. My boys will be gone; their mom's off in Asia on tour. They are with me until the 15th, and then they are gone for the rest of the month. I won't have the boys for Father's Day. I'm doing a vacation with some of the kids and my nephew." He added: "Having six, it feels like you're trying to control a basketball team. But it's worth it. All my kids are great; they get along. By the time you have six, you are so well seasoned. I can probably change a diaper with one hand and feed a kid at the same time."
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez wrap up their romantic Parisian vacation
Lovebirds Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez spent the weekend taking in the sights on their latest getaway together in Paris. According to People, the couple visited the Jardin des Tuileries outside the Louvre, strolled along the Ile Saint Louis near Notre Dame and checked out a few stores on the Champs-Elysees during their vacation. "Jennifer loves France. She has been many times and was very excited about the vacation with Alex," a source close to Jen tells People. Jennifer organized the trip and showed Alex her favorite places. They had the best week. Things are great with them. Jennifer still gushes about Alex every chance she gets. The more she gets to know him, the more she likes him. They are definitely very serious." An onlooker who spotted the pair shopping noted they were "laughing and walking hand-in-hand," and that despite rumors Alex cheated on Jen, there was "no sign of any strain between them."
Laura Dern calls out Hollywood narcissism
Could Hollywood help make pop culture less narcissistic? Laura Dern thinks so. Speaking on a panel at Cannes Lion, the "Little Big Lies" and "Twin Peaks" star explained why she'd like to see actors turn some of the attention that gets put on their work and personal lives to causes that matter to them. "I am always stunned by the amount of press I have done in my life with respected actors, and we sit there and wait for someone to ask something that we are passionate about, rather than something funny that happened on the set," she said, according to the New York Post. "Narcissim only lasts for so long, and I'm thinking 'Oh my god, how long can he talk about himself?… There should be a cause we can talk about." She also compared the difference between the kind of celebrity her parents, Bruce Dern and Diane Ladd, had with what it means to be a famous actor today. "Part of the brand was the mystique of the actor, you did one magazine cover and the Johnny Carson show, and that was it… it was about being unreachable and untouchable," she said. "It has completely changed. Actresses now have the luxury of entering the world of beauty and fashion. The world of advertising supports film, it also supports actors, and great filmmakers like David Lynch and Robert Altman, advertising gives us the chance to work with autonomy in film."

Amy Duggar King reflects on married life with Dillon King
Amy Duggar King and Dillon King tied the knot on Sept. 6, 2015. As their second anniversary approaches, the couple is getting ready to premiere the "19 Kids and Counting" spin-off reality show they've been shooting since 2016. "Our love isn't perfect, but it's real! We don't try to be anything we are not. We hope to make people laugh and get a sense for who we are as a couple," Amy told Us Weekly ahead of the Monday, June 19 debut of "Amy & Dillon: Married One Year." Looking back, Amy admitted her marriage has required some work. 'Our first year had its ups and downs. There were a lot of changes that took place around us. My parents divorced and that really has been a very hard adjustment. We also were friends for so long we really had to learn how to respect each other as life partners," she said. "I don't know if I will fully know Dill 100 percent, but I'll spend the rest of my life trying to. I had a very hard time just learning how to express my feelings without storming out and he had a problem with his tone. I'm not gonna lie, it's still something we are continuing to work on." They're also planning to start a family — eventually. "It is very important for us to spend time as a married couple alone without kids. We love to travel and we have been traveling like crazy! But when it comes to kids … Yes, we are on the same page," Amy said. "We love kids and we actually sat down one night for hours and talked all about it."
Miley Cyrus sparks feud with Stefano Gabanna
What began as a congratulatory note to Miley Cyrus' brother has become a full-on social media feud. Over the weekend, Braison Cyrus appeared in a runway show for Dolce and Gabbana. That's unlikely to happen again. Miley posted a loving message on Instagram about her bro in which she acknowledged D&G's controversial political leanings (the designers have been criticized for dressing Melania Trump and for blasting children born via IVF as "synthetic"). "Congrats @braisonccyrus on walking in your 1st runway show…. It's never been my little brothers dream to be a model as HE is one of the most talented musicians my ears have ever been given the gift of hearing…. BUT it is a Cyrus family trait to try everything once (within reason HA) and to embrace opportunities that encourage you to step out of your comfort zone! We believe in trying something new everyday! I love you Prince Suga Bear and seriously congratulations on your experience! I am so proud of you always…. From Nashville to Italy! 👑❤️👑❤️👑❤️ ," she wrote. She ended the message by writing, "PS D&G, I STRONGLY disagree with your politics…. but I do support your company's effort to celebrate young artists & give them the platform to shine their light for all to see!" Despite her conciliatory tone, Stefano Gabbana responded by informing Miley her brother was no longer welcome at D&G. "Ignorant!!!," he wrote, before adding, "For your stupid comment never more work with him ❤❤." In another post he asked Miley to "ignore" his fashion house going forward. "We are Italian and we don't care about politics and mostly neither about the American one!" he ranted (via HuffPo). "We make dresses and if you think about doing politics with a post it's simply ignorant. We don't need your posts or comments so next time please ignore us!!"
