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.

Top 5 Couples in Country Music

Best Country Couples

Celebrity couples just make sense, right? They "get" one another. They get what it's like to be adored. They get what it's like to lack privacy. They get what it's like to roll around in money (I'm assuming). There's an added layer of compatibility when the two celebrities are not just famous, but come from the same industry. So these five country couples just make sense.

Johnny Cash + June Carter

Johnny Cash and June Carter are kind of the quintessential country couple. They first met in 1956 when they were both part of the Opry company; by the 1960s, Cash and Carter were regularly performing together. In 1968, Cash proposed, and the two were married a month later. The couple was married for 35 years, and they were the subject of the 2005 film "Walk the Line." During their professional career, Cash and Carter also won prestigious awards for their duets "Jackson" and "If I Were a Carpenter."

10 Best Celebrity Alter Egos

Alter egos

Even the greatest of celebrities have employed alter egos — whether to help them perform onstage, or to try something new in their music, or just because they felt like it. Here are our picks for the top 10 celebrity alter egos.

#1 Beyoncé as Sasha Fierce

Although Beyoncé has a few alter egos under her belt — including her latest, Yoncé, and Mrs. Carter, the queen of her previous solo tour — it all started with Sasha Fierce. Sasha Fierce existed only on stage, allowing Beyoncé to separate Celebrity Beyoncé from Regular Beyoncé. In 2010, she said she had "killed" Sasha Fierce because she no longer needed her; since then, the singer has said, "I think Beyoncé is Beyoncé, Mrs. Carter is Beyoncé, Sasha Fierce is Beyoncé. And I’m finally at a place where I don’t have to separate the two."

Child stars

I can't imagine what it'd be like to have excessive fame, money, and freedom at a young age — not when I wasn't even allowed to stay up late and watch "Family Guy." There's a reason why a lot of child stars end up faltering as they prepare to enter adulthood and instead end up kind of strange.

Enter Miley Cyrus, the face of wholesome Disney superstar Hannah Montana and daughter to one of the cheesiest celebrities of all time, Billy Ray Cyrus. Everyone is still buzzing about the performance she and Robin Thicke gave us (and not in a good way). Interestingly, The Onion predicted this is the road Miley would take five years ago (they even got the year right). While part of me understands she's just a 20-year-old girl trying to shed her Hannah Montana image and "find herself," the other part of me is all, "No. No thank you."

But Miley's transition isn't inevitable! So here are five child stars who turned out just fine.

6 Ways to Mentally Prepare to Meet Your Favorite Band

Backstreet Boys

On Friday, I'll be heading to Camden, New Jersey, to see the Backstreet Boys. It will be my 10th Backstreet Boys concert. (So the next time you wonder, "Is my life embarrassing?" just look at this post you will feel better.) I've actually been to all of their tours since "Into the Millenium," except for their "This Is Us" tour, and I am still mad about it. Let's not talk about it.

But this concert is extra special for two reasons. One, all five band members are back. Two, I kind of splurged on a meet and greet pass.

To be fair, meet and greet passes to a Backstreet Boys show include a decent amount of perks, like photos with the band, access to their sound check, and the ability to be part of a Q&A before the show. I decided just to go for it given the fact that I've been a fan of the band for 15 years of my life. That's kind of longer than a lot of marriages last. (I'm just saying.) So I'm trying to mentally prepare. Here are a few things I'm telling myself to remember before I meet my favorite band.
