1. Hey Papi

What ever happened to having a baby and taking a year off from the entertainment world? It seems like Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles-Carter have ignored that unwritten rule but may finally take some time to breathe in the fresh air with Blue Ivy. Bossip has the scoop on why $400,000 is getting spent in one lump sum come next month:

Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles have splashed out $400,000 to rent a holiday home for the whole of August. The couple are to take their seven-month-old daughter Blue Ivy to the Hamptons - an exclusive group of villages in Long Island, New York - for the first time by letting the 11-acre property on Halsey Lane in Bridgehampton, known as the Sandcastle, which is currently on the market for $43.5 million. Jay and Beyonce will be able to relax in the property's 60-foot heated pool, which comes complete with underwater stereo system, and if they are feeling sporty then the two-lane bowling alley, virtual golf facilities, skateboard half-pipe or tennis court might be useful. The Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It) hitmaker can also take the opportunity to teach her daughter some of the tricks of the showbiz trade in the home's "children's performing area", and the property also features squash, racquetball and basketball courts with moving walls and a retractable hoop, according to the listing on (Bossip)

If Blue Ivy wasn't already spoiled, this nice getaway is sure to do the trick. A quiet, exclusive place away from the paps, a 60-foot heated pool, endless entertainment and even a children's performing area? What better way than to relax during the hot days of August? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Prince James

Before he was the championship-winning "King," LeBron James was a regular kid who attended classes and got some mainstream attention for his basketball skills. It's hard to believe that he's been anything other than superior in the world of sports but thanks to the peeps over at Media Take Out, we can see a shot of LeBron James before the love-hate-love media/fan chants:


AWWWWWW!! We Have LeBron's PROM PIC . . . With Fiance SAVANNAH . . . And They BOTH Looked Cute!! (Yes . . . Even LeBron) Look how cute they both looked. And LeBon actually looked his age back then . . . (Media Take Out)

Even the biggest LeBron Hater has to show off a smirk or two right here. How special is it too that his fiancée is the one in the prom photo? Can anyone say high school sweetheart? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. 40 Is The New 20

Remember when most people were scared to turn 30 and probably thought more about death than turning 40? Well, after Diddy made it hot and Jay-Z showed his swagger went nowhere after passing 39, Jada Pinkett Smith makes it seem like 40 is hotter than being 30 or even 20 these days. Necole Bitchie has a shot of the 41 year-old eye-catcher.

Hollywood's 40 and over crew are definitely proof that we get better with age. Halle Berry, Taraji P. Henson, Nia Long and Jada Pinkett are definitely doing it! Last night, Jada (41) posted a bikini shot to her facebook with the caption: "To my Forty and over crew! Don't believe the hype...we DO get better with age!" (Necole Bitchie)

We hope Will and Jada never call it quits because between these two, there's no competition as to the Hottest Married Couple In Hollywood. Hands down they have that title on lock especially given this new bikini photo. #SOHHWhatchaThink?
