Celebrities You Didn't Know Were Related

There are some famous celebrity relatives it seems like everyone knows, from Owen and Luke Wilson to Beyonce and Solange Knowles. And yet, as much as we talk about celebrities, there are still some connections that slip under our radar. So here are a few related celebs you probably didn't know about.

Snoop Dogg and Brandy/Ray J

Most are privy to the fact that singers Brandy and Ray J are siblings — but who knew they were also first cousins with Snoop Dogg (AKA Snoop Lion)?

What People Are Talking About

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift made headlines for two reasons this week: first, because she stopped by Boston Children's Hospital to make a special visit to an adorable 5-year-old named Jordan. Together, they sang along to "We Are Never, Ever Getting Back Together" for a very sweet moment. If that wasn't enough, Swift started dropping clues about her new music. It started on Monday with a cryptic Instagram video of her hitting the number '18' six times while in an elevator. Then she released two more hints: a screenshot of a phone (a picture that includes her cat, Olivia, a camera, and some artwork), as well as this image referencing Yahoo.com. So what is it, exactly? No one knows. But hopefully something will be revealed soon!

Top 5 Reasons the NFL Preseason is Worth Watching

Top 5 Reasons the NFL Preseason is Worth Watching

The NFL Preseason officially kicks-off its full schedule tonight (if you don't count the Hall of Fame Game from last Sunday) and I could not be any more excited. Sure, preseason games don't really count, but there are still plenty of great reasons to be invested in the preseason this year. Here are my top five reasons why you should be watching:

Cures Your NFL Football Withdrawal

When the clock hit zero in the Super Bowl on February 2nd, football fans everywhere immediately went into football withdrawal. Sundays were not the same. Monday nights were not the same. Food stopped having flavor. Colors were not as bright. The last two may be a stretch, but not by much. While the preseason is just exhibition games, getting to see your favorite players suit up and hit the field still gives you that dose of football that you were longing for.

Are Jay Z and Beyonce Divorcing? (A Complete Guide)

Are Jay Z and Beyonce Divorcing

It's a question many have been wondering, especially since the elevator incident: are Jay Z and Beyonce splitting up? Here, I'll break down everything surrounding the billionaire couple, rumors, speculation, and fans included, so you can become the resident Jay Z and Beyonce expert at your next family party/company event/watercooler conversation.

The Elevator Incident

This is really what started the whole 'Jay/Bey are done' rumors. It happened back in May, when some security footage leaked from a Met Gala after-party. There's no audio in the video, but it clearly showed Jay Z, Beyonce, and Solange (Beyonce's sister) on an elevator. Solange was yelling, and then she went after Jay Z. Theories behind why the bizarre 'incident' took place include:

1.) Jay Z cheated on Beyonce with Rihanna.

2.) Jay Z cheated on Beyonce with Rachel Roy.

3.) Jay Z was with Rachel Roy back in the day, and bragged about it the night of the Met Gala.

4.) Jay Z disrespected Beyonce in some way, cheating or otherwise, and Solange was sticking up for her.

5.) Solange's behavior that night is normal for her.

6.) Blue Ivy is actually Solange's daughter and now she wants custody?

7.) Solange's kid is actually Jay Z's and she's tired of hiding it?

8.) Solange and Jay Z were arguing over something Illuminati-related?

As you can see, things start to get weird, fast. This doesn't even include the joke theories! That said, all we officially know is what the three of them have said — essentially nothing.

Yet that hasn't stopped rumors from circulating that Jay Z and Beyonce are definitely, probably, maybe going to break up, separate, renew their vows, have another kid, or divorce soon, in the future, or never.
