One of the entertainment world's most popular and beloved couples, Beyonce and Jay-Z, celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary - on 4/4 no less.

The ultra-private music moguls launched a special Tumblr page on Thursday, featuring personal pics, and Beyonce also re-launched Beyonce (dot) com.

Here's one of the never-before-seen Jay-Z and Beyonce pictures they posted.

Besides an artful gallery of stylish photos, the multi-media site includes sections on Bey's music catalog, upcoming concert dates, latest news and more.

Somewhat unexpectedly, the power couple's first foray into Tumblr came earlier this year, shortly after the birth of their daughter Blue Ivy Carter.

When she turned four weeks old, Jay-Z and Beyoncé shared the first pictures of their baby girl, and have kept her under wraps since when stepping out.

Congratulations to the couple on their anniversary, and the new arrival!

All the single ladies, put your hands up ... and prepare to be envious.

A little over two months after giving birth to her baby daughter Blue Ivy Carter, a smiling Beyonce stepped out last night and she looks ... wow. Just wow.

The singer got dolled up for a fundraising event for President Obama - the same one that drew headlines for Robert De Niro's "White First Lady" joke.

There was no controversy about this, though: She looked awesome!

Bey wore a snug navy dress by Victoria Beckham, sky-high heels and some dazzling bling (including a diamond-encrusted eagle) with her hair in a simple ponytail.

So what was Beyonce doing right in terms of new mom style?

"When you think of the things women dislike about themselves, the majority don't like their upper arms and also have skirt-length issues," one stylist told MTV.

"She's addressed both of these. It's an interesting choice because it's snug, not tight. There's a distinction between the two. It's body-flattering, for sure."

For sure.

Katy Perry is so excited about the prospect of a collaboration with BFF Rihanna, she may have put her foot in her mouth discussing the potential project.

Perry weighed in on the forthcoming song (which undoubtedly will be a catchy #1 hit with those two working together), with an apparent dig at Beyonce:

"We've collaborated on things, just not songs yet. It's one of those things that's got so much build-up that we have to deliver," she said on BBC Radio 1.

  • Katy Perry is Back
  • Beyonce in Concert

"I want it to be like that Eurythmics and Aretha Franklin song 'Sisters Are Doin' It for Themselves,' not 'Beautiful Liar.' I definitely want to do something iconic."

Beyonce's 2007 track "Beautiful Liar," featuring Shakira, isn't her best song, but it did reach No. 1 on the iTunes best-seller list and U.S. Hot Singles Sales.

Perry doesn't have a reputation for starting beef with other celebs, so we're guessing she did not mean it as an insult ... even if it sort of reads that way.

Maybe Bey and Katy can collaborate next and bury the hatchet in this non-feud?

In sort of related news, KP sort of embarrassed herself covering "N****s In Paris" by Jay-Z and Kanye West at the same BBC Radio 1 appearance.

Beyonce's only job right now is mom to one-month-old baby girl Blue Ivy Carter, but she's already plotting a return to the recording studio sometime soon.

She's got plenty of new inspirational material, after all.

Snger/songwriter Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, who has helped produce big time hits with Adele, Kelly Clarkson, Leona Lewis and Beyonce herself ("Halo"), says he's working with B again, and has already sent the superstar songs about motherhood.

Beyonce's Baby Bump

"The conversations about her next album literally just started and there [are] two projects happening," Ryan explained. "All I can say is you kind of feed her the best that you have; Beyonce's this phenomenal filter and she takes it all in."

He declined to specify what the star's second project will be, on top of the new album, although a release of remixes for her album 4 has been rumored.

For the time being, however, Jay-Z and his wife are "enjoying the time off" at their Scarsdale, N.Y., mansion and $6.85 million TriBeCa loft. Says Tedder:

"She has been totally doting on Blue ... She's up whenever the baby's up!"

Aww. If you haven't seen them, check out the first Blue Ivy Carter photos!

Welcome to the world, Blue Ivy Carter.

Granted, the first offspring of mega couple Beyonce and Jay-Z arrived on January 8, but her first photos only surfaced online today, courtesy of  the rapper's blog, Life + Times. Look at happy mother and adorable daughter below:

At first, of course, there was a question over what the baby's name actually was, but Beyonce and Jay-Z have most definitely made it very clear: they've already moved to trademark the moniker Blue Ivy.

A tad pretentious? Sure. But how can we find any fault in something really to someone so cute?!? Just look at the tyke again:

She's already a mogul, this one.

Blue Ivy, Beyonce and Jay-Z's baby's name, may soon be trademarked as well. It does have instant brand recognition, and her business-savvy folks are all over that.

Blue Ivy Carter's parents filed an application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office protecting the little girl's name for possible use on a future line of baby goods.

Why the rush? There was no time to waste, apparently.

Two Blue Ivy wannabe entrepreneurs already had applications shot down, and no matter how many White House visits Bey and Jay had enjoyed, they'd still have to go through the office's first-come, first-served process like everyone else.

However, a surge in applications is usual when a new name or phrase explodes into the lexicon, and because it's the office's job to sort things out, they try to anticipate trends, subsequently fast-tracking applications inspired by names in the news.

Still, one Blue Ivy earned the trademark before Beyonce was even pregnant: The Blue Ivy clothing store in Wisconsin got unknowingly lucky in early 2011.

They can be expecting a fat check in the near future.

Having a baby, it does a body good.

At least if you're Beyonce, who made her first public appearance last night since giving birth to Blue Ivy Carter on January 7. It's safe to say the singer doesn't look half bad, does she?

Beyonce Body

Beyonce and her new curves came out to support her husband, as Jay-Z performed at Carnegie Hall in the first of two benefit concerts to honor the United Way of New York City and the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation. Both organizations aim to educate children and lift them out of poverty.

A good cause. A great body.

Beyonce has also been in the news lately because reports claim Simon Cowell wants her to judge The X Factor next season. For a cool $100 million salary.

With three-fifths of last year's X Factor panel receiving their pink slips this week, a new report claims Simon Cowell had made his first move to replace Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger and Steve Jones.

And it's a big... nay, a huge... nay, an ENORMOUS one.

Beyonce, In Thought

Insiders claim the producer has offered Beyonce $100 million to judge the show next season, a sum that would be the highest annual salary in TV history.

"He wants a big-name female star on the panel," a source tells Media Take Out. "Mariah is good, but she's not that hot today. He wants Beyoncé because that would immediately give him the bounce needed to beat American Idol."

But would Beyonce possibly consider the deal?!?

She already has a few dollars in the bank and is as established an artist as there is today. Then again, she did just give birth, so wouldn't a seat at the judging table be the ideal way to remain buzz-worthy, keep a regular schedule, make SERIOUS coin and spend a time of time with Blue Ivy?

Do you think Beyonce would make a good X Factor judge?
