Jay-Z and Beyonce marriage: true or false

An editor, who knows how much I love to gab about celebrities, sent me this from a newswire:

"Beyonce and Jay-Z take out marriage license in Scarsdale GNS Entertainment for April 2, 2008 By ROB RYSER The (Westchester, N.Y.) Journal News SCARSDALE, N.Y. — Long rumored romantic pair Beyonce Knowles and Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter may soon be the first couple of hip hop.
The superstar entertainers, better known as Beyonce and Jay-Z, recently took out a marriage license in Scarsdale, People magazine reports.
Citing an unnamed source, people said the couple took out a license on Tuesday, which was April Fool’s Day.
Both superstars have consistently downplayed rumors of a romance between them.
Scarsdale Village Clerk Donna Conkling could not be reached for comment Wednesday morning.
In order to get the marriage license, the couple would have had to make an appointment and both show up with proof of their age and identity, as well as pay a $40 fee.
The license is good for 60 days.
"

I've been waiting for this for a while. But why did they have to take out the license on April Fool's Day? Does that mean this is a joke?

I hope not. Is everyone else as excited as I am?

Discuss.

I don't follow celebrity gossip too closely, so I Googled it.

My thoughts: if there are rumors that they're already married out there, and that they were engaged back in January, then I say it's not an April Fool's joke. Plus, you buy a marriage license from one-30 days before you get married, depending on the state, anyway. So that just means they're taking steps to purchase the legal portion to make it an actual honest-to-God legal marriage.

PLUS ... if it were just an April Fool's joke, I think they'd have sent another news release swapping out the one sent yesterday.

Oh puh-leeze. I'm totally not buying it. They've been together since "'03 Bonnie & Clyde" days and have been rumored to be married, preggers and whatever else at LEAST once every year since.
It's definitely an April Fool's joke. That's right, mark this down, I'm going on the record: Donecia Pea said it's a JOKE! (lol)
If I am wrong, I will buy a Danity Kane CD (GOD don't let me be wrong!)
If I'm right, you will owe me lunch money for Checkers, lol. Bet?

Kate Warren said...

I think it's part of Ashton Kutcher's new show where he punks the media.

Donecia Pea said...

Lol kate warren - I TOTALLY second that.

Terry L. Jones said...

I don't really care if they are getting married are not. I'm sorry, but B and Jay-Hova are just overrated!!

And D., don't be bagging on Danity Kane!! That CD is the hottest thing out this year! Those girls are going to take over!

Ashley Northington said...

I don't know y'all...maybe it is a stunt to punk the media.

I can't believe it. I really, really, really want them to be married! I don't know why I have such an interest in their relationshp...

D, if you're wrong, I want you to sing their one and only hit, "Showstoppers" aloud!

Donecia Pea said...

LMAO! Ok, first off: Terry, you are like the only person over age 18 that I've ever heard describe a Danity Kane CD as the hottest thing out this year, lol!!

And we can't overlook the fact you're a hater when it comes to Beyonce, lol. HOWEVER, that said, I think I do agree with you on this - Jayonce is extremely tired and overrated as a couple to get excited about. I mean they've been together longer as an unmarried couple than some married celeb couples, so it would be more shocking if they actually broke up.

And Ashley, I don't know, that's quite a challenge right there, but I tell you what, I'll sing it in TUS if I'm wrong, lol. (Yeah riiiight, lol)

Terry L. Jones said...

LMAO...I am not a Beyonce hater D. She's ok, I'm just so sick of everyone treating her like she's this innovative artist. All she does is take everything she hears from her gay friends and recycles it for mainstream public.

As for Danity Kane, I'm just gonna leave you guys with this.."Do-do you, got a first aid kit handy!"

LOL

Donecia Pea said...

LOL!!! Terry, I actually agree with you on that. I think Beyonce is a very talented entertainer. She's the triple threat in that regard: pretty, can dance and can actually sing. BUT, I agree - I certainly would call her innovative. She's more of the pop kinda thing.
When I think of innovative, I think of folks like Jill Scott.

As for that Danity Kane reference, ummm ????

Yahoo is now reporting on this ... http://omg.yahoo.com/report-beyonce-and-jay-z-wed/news/7985?nc. Not sure how valid of a source that is towards helping to solve this puzzle, but it says, "News of the reported wedding comes after days of speculation following reports, which surfaced on Tuesday, that Jay-Z and Beyonce had taken out a marriage license in Scarsdale, New York."

So ... does that solve the puzzle? Or are there still questions up in the air?

i get my celeb gossip from www.theybf.com ... the site was on Bey-Z watch all day Friday when the alleged wedding occurred atop the roof of Jay's apt building. Check out the pics on the site, complete with an explanation of why 04/04 was a special day (they were both born on the fourth of the month -- Gag me).

I too am sick of the couple and would love for them to get married so they can go live a normal life and get off my TV and radio .. sheesh. LOL. They are SICKENING! Not being a hater, just being real. Between them and TomKat, I'm sooooo over it

But a lot of people think this is all for the show "Pop Fiction" and if it is .,. B will never live it down for hoaxing America. LOL.

So Donecia, now that it's been confirmed that it actually did happen, I want to know...did you pay up on your bets? ;-)

Donecia Pea said...

Lol, no comment rosy205! I'm holding out hope that mahogani (the media goddess) is right and that this is the ultimate prank for Ashton Kutcher's new show. GOD I need to be right on this!

And show me proof of this said 'confirmation' of their marriage, because everywhere I look nobody's said it's been confirmed by anything but anonymous sources and anonymous sources don't count in my book!

Man, I totally agree with you on that.

There's way too many fools out there that can't grasp.

In fact, I was fightin with my best friend sean yesterday about this, and
they wouldn't admit to me that he was wrong. Now I can just show them this blog :)
