Jay-Z landed in Paris to perform a couple stops on his Watch the Throne tour with Kanye West early in June, but he and the Mrs. have been sticking around to enjoy the city. Beyonce and Jay-Z did lunch in Paris yesterday, but this time without Blue Ivy, who they’ve keep bundled up and out of the paparazzi’s glare, just like in New York.
Bey sported a few different shades of yellow, tying it together with her throwback frames and heels, while Jay did his casual things in khakis, a t-shirt and denim.
The couple are reportedly planning a little vacay with their pals Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay singer Chris Martin. Paltrow joined Bey at The Throne’s Paris show, where she got into some trouble for a controversial tweet. Singer/songwriter The-Dream apparently snapped and tweeted a picture of Gwyn grooving onstage, with a caption that read, “Ni**as in Paris for real @mrteriusnash (the dream) tyty, beehigh.”
That comment, sent from Paltrow’s account, set off a firestorm on Twitter, where fans and bloggers ripped the actress for seemingly using the n-word.
The-Dream, however, stepped in to defend his pal, explaining, “Fyi Sorry for the Confu I typed Ni**as in Paris for real from Gwens phone. My bad I was Fkd up please excuse it! We were lit!”
He then went on to post a series of peeved tweets in reaction to fans calling him out for his defense of Paltrow. “N—a doesn’t have any power over me which is why this will be the last thing I say about it,” he wrote. “A word means something when u react to it! … Context is everything. Meaning it in the context as a Song which is how we Sold it to the world!!!!!! It is what it is … And actually N—az was in Paris! LOL. Stop wasting God’s time and do something with your life. Love not war.”
