Beyonce & Jay-Z: Heavy Tippers

    Big darn deal. I had a Pop Tart today. B can suck it.

    With older couple?
    It looks like older couple was sitting at the next table.

  • Nay

    Wearing sunglasses while having a meal in a posh restaurant is very romantic. Berks.

  • caroline

    wow 1700 for lunch?? that must have been some lobster salad . . .

  • ehh…

    well on the upside they are helping the economy by spending money;
    downside the meal probably wasn’t all that good..if I was going to spend that much cash the food I was eating better be the best. Or better than s.e.x.. well almost better than s.e.x..

  • Wow.

    That’s depressing.

  • eden

    $500 is a 40% tip….all celebrities should have a 40% standard tip

  • *** JAMIE ***

    $1500 is nothing for celebrities. The make MILLIONS each year and they need to spend it somehow.

  • liza

    @Wow.: IKR

  • A.M.A.N.D.?

    HAaaaaa haaaaaaa yep that’s very depressing. When I think I sometimes struggle to find 5 bucks for lunch!!!!!! And them….1700……whoa. What I would do to be famous and rich!

  • iheartvector

    Maybe $1,700 was like $170 for them….

  • Anita

    They ate a good one at least! :)

  • sunny


    haha….don’t sweat it. money corrupts. If you believe in God, and live your life for His glory, you will be handsomely rewarded for eternity.
    Our life here is but a puff of smoke. Eternity is a long, long time! :)

    These people simply have no clue. you should feel sorry for them.
    when they’re gone — it’s gone.

    Something much more fantastic awaits you by the One who created lobsters and black tuffles and divine grapes for expensive champagne. (i’ve had dom and it is lovely, but not paid for through lame raps and putting down women and using the “n” word).
    where jay-z is going, he’ll be thirsty for a loooonnnngggg time.

    wouldn’t want to be him for the world! lol!

    @sunny: I agree with the first part of your statement, but it sure beats being broke and not being able to pay your bills. Not that I condone misogny, but there have been alot of Hollywood films that do the same thing. Violence, drugs and hatred against women were here long before hip hop.

  • khristi

    @sunny: And also, why would I feel sorry for people who make their money by working hard. That goes for celebrities and “normal” folks alike.

  • ugly

    I wish they think abt the poor ppl who may never have that kind of money in a week befor going to that stupid restaurant and not just JB alone but everybody else at that silly restaurant siting and eating like money is nothing to everyone in the world.

  • Chantal

    if i may correct you, they are not Dining with an older couple. you can clearly see that they were actually sitting @ the table infornt of the old couple!!!!!!!!

  • Marita

    I really like her hair, it looks different from usual.

  • Jaja


    That makes no sense at all. Just because the rich decided to make something out of themselves they cannot enjoy the fruits of their labor? Please! Who are you to tell someone how to spend their money? And a lot of celebrities really do give back. *rolling eyes*

  • aunatural

    I like Beyonce but wish she’d take a leaf out of her sister Solange and Tyra Banks’s book and loose the wigs/weaves… just for a while at least, for Pete’s sake.

  • Michelle

    Uhhh… except that they do. These celebrities donate millions to causes they find worthy of their time and money.
    I agree that $1000+ on lunch at a place that isn’t even that great is excessive, but they’ve earned their way in – let them have their fun.

  • Michelle

    And just to add… their bill isn’t what’s making my eyes pop out. It’s the fact that they’re wearing what they’re wearing. I realize it’s lunchtime, but still! They’re wearing their hats at the table? I thought they would at least have the courtesy of removing them. If it was anyone else, the waiters would serve them poorly because of their attire and casualness.

  • Weber from Brazil

    I love Beyoncé

    but once again she wore this HORRIBLE wig –’

    I so much prefer her older wigs… from the “Dangerously in Love era ”

    Anyway… she’s divine and DIVA

    that’s why I love her ♥

  • me

    that’s nice :)

  • jenna

    must be nice..


    wow thats some tip…lol

  • lala

    mighty convenient that the amount Jay-Z tipped was revealed. Most people in the biz know that last month in LA he tiipped ZERO on a $3k bill.

  • Riri

    Beyonce ego is out of control.
    Jay Z and her planned the entire thing with Kanye West, so that people will think that Byonch was the one who deserved the award.
    What a bitc-h.
