Rap mogul Jay Z is now experiencing the same fate as boxer Manny Pacquiao and singer Miguel as a new photo of himself and wife Beyoncé Knowles-Carter has turned into an instant Internet gag.
The photo, which features Jigga and Bey hopping into a pool, has caught widespread attention this week.
Jay Z and Beyonce are on vacation for Bey’s birthday right now in Stromboli, Italy. But while the two were enjoying each other’s company on a luxurious yacht with Blue Ivy, some paparazzo nabbed a photo of Jay jumping into the pool. The photo is hilarious. Mostly because Jay tends to look extremely awkward when he’s doing anything besides rapping. But he’s so good at rapping and is always looking and acting so damn cool it’s extra funny whenever he looks uncool. Which is probably why Twitter reacted, of course, because no Jay, you cannot live. You cannot have nice things. (Complex)
A few days ago photos started circulating online of the music couple heading out to Spain for some holiday weekend fun.
The Carters spent Labor Day weekend at home and abroad. Following Beyoncé’s headlining set at Saturday’s Made in America festival in Philly, the jet-setting couple kicked back and enjoyed performances from Solange, Miguel, and Nine Inch Nails on Sunday. Hours later, they hopped a plane to Spain for some R&R. The famous family was seen boarding a yacht in Ibiza with Blue Ivy Beyoncé carried her adorable daughter in her arms as she strut up the ramp in her stilettos. Bey has a few more days to rest before she kicks off the Latin American leg of “The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour” on Sept. 8. (Rap-Up)
Bey dominated the opening Made In America night with performances of hit songs like “Run the World (Girls)” last weekend.
Beyonce rocks out on stage wearing a brand new outfit to close the evening at the 2013 Budweiser Made in America Festival held at Benjamin Franklin Parkway on Saturday evening (August 31) in Philadelphia, Penn. The 31-year-old entertainer performed her full Mrs. Carter Tour set for the crowd. The first two songs of her show – “Run the World (Girls)” and “End of Time” – were live streamed online.

Back in May, R&B singer Miguel turned into a meme sensation following a televised Billboard Music Awards accident.
During R&B star Miguel’s performance of his hit “Adorn” at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards the singer attempted to jump over a crowd of screaming fans but didn’t quite stick the landing. Needless to say, one fan got a face full of Miguel and knows him better than any one else in the audience. Thanks to the internet moments like this don’t just go away, they live on forever in a stream of memes that won’t end until another celebrity does something embarrassing. (The Urban Daily)
