"Beyonce definitely wants more kids. Jay wants a boy next so they can have one of each. They're ready for a baby whenever it happens," a source told Us Weekly.

Meanwhile, Beyonce's stylist Raquel Smith says the star's style is more casual since giving birth because it is more practical for a busy mother. "She's revealing a more relaxed side with flats and mid-heels. She's doing more baggy printed pants, loose tees and blazers," she said.

However, her other stylist Ty Hunter insists she won't let motherhood stop her from being sexy. "When Beyonce gets dressed these days, her goal is to show people you can be a mom and still be sexy," he said.

Video Game Company Sues Beyonce

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Television, Legal Issues,

BeyonceBeyonce has been sued for $100 million by a video game developer.

Gate Five claims that the "Listen" star went back on her word for a $20 million deal for the proposed game named Starpower: Beyonce. Legal representatives for the 30-year-old singer insisted that she had the choice to back out of the agreement after she discovered that the company had not come up with the necessary budget for what was needed to create the product named after her.

Gate Five, however, has replied that she unfairly pulled out only three days before she was supposed to officially sign a contract with them back in December 2010. They maintain that her actions resulted in them losing millions of dollars and having to fire 70 employees.

The New York Post reports that Justice Charles Ramos has allowed the lawsuit to go to trial, as Beyonce should have given the company notice before quitting the deal. Beyonce has declined any comment on the matter.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Music, Obituaries,

Etta JamesEtta James' son has described her death as a "spiritual moment." Donto James, 43, explained the legendary singer - who passed away yesterday at the age of 73 following a battle with leukemia - spent her final moments in his arms, which was a "true gift."

"It's been quite a day but I'm very grateful. She basically passed in my arms, and I was able to share everything I needed to say to her, from praying to listing her accomplishments as a mother. I asked her if she heard what I said, and she'd flutter her eyes and look at me very quickly. And she had been nonreactive before that. It was spiritual and a true gift to be with her when it happened. I wouldn't want it any other way than for her to go in our arms."

In a tribute to the "At Last" hitmaker - who was admitted to a hospital in Riverside, California, as her condition deteriorated on Thursday night - Donto praised his mother as a "wonderful" woman: "I told her that I loved her. I said, 'You were a wonderful mother, you did a wonderful job, your seven grandchildren love you, and they will be okay.' For sure, the world lost a legend today. I am very proud of her, and very thankful."

Jessica Alba Thinks Beyonce Should Sell Baby Pictures

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Music, Celebrity Babies, Photos,

Jessica Alba with her daughter Honor for OK! MagazineJessica Alba has advised Beyonce Knowles to sell the first pictures of newborn daughter Ivy Blue.

The stunning actress and her husband Cash Warren reportedly received $1.5 million from OK! magazine for the first images of their daughter, Honor, in 2008, and she thinks Beyonce and spouse Jay-Z should do the same with their new addition.

"For our family, we just wanted to control the experience. We put the money that the picture made into a bank account for Honor to do whatever she wants to do with. It's her picture, it's her birth, and we didn't want it to be like a weird thing when we were walking out of the house for the first time. If there's a price tag on your child - which is so bizarre - people will go to crazy lengths. We wanted to avoid that hysteria," she said.

Jessica - who welcomed second daughter, Haven, into the world last August - said she really enjoyed the photo shoot and would definitely recommend it: "We were friends with the photographer. It was just a nice day in the house. We'll have those beautiful pictures forever. You can give the money to charity and to your baby and that's it. But the biggest thing is having a healthy baby ... I'm sure Beyonce will make the best decision for her family."
