Carters in the Louvre
After months of split rumors, pregnancy speculation, and now stories about a collaborated album between Jay Z and Beyoncé, the couple and their daughter are taking some well-deserved time off in the city of lights.
Beyoncé posted more than 25 personal pictures on her website from the weekend where the family of three was photographed exploring the famous Louvre museum.
During a private tour at the Paris landmark, mommy Beyoncé was snapping pics of 2-year-old daughter Blue Ivy playing and taking her own pictures (selfies, what else?).
The Carters have been spending quite some time in Paris. Just a couple weeks ago, the power couple was seen with David and Victoria Beckham at a soccer match.

John Luke Robertson Engaged
Most boys anticipating a 19th birthday are usually not planning on proposing to their girlfriends anytime soon. However, for Duck Dynasty star John Luke Robertson, he spent his birthday down on one knee proposing to girlfriend Mary Kate McEacharn.
The son of Wille and Korie Robertson spoked to Us Weekly about the engagement.
"I am so excited to marry my best friend. I know my parents married young as well, and they have always been examples of what ‘could be’ to me. Fast-forward 22 years and they are more in love than ever, and I hope Mary Kate and I are the same way in the years to come. God has truly blessed us," he said.
His new fiancé revealed the exciting news on her Instagram account with John Luke holding a sign reading "Future Mrs. Robertson" with an arrow point to the young bride-to-be.
Angelina Jolie Made Honorary Dame
Friday served as a very special day for Angelina Jolie, now Honorary Dame. Queen Elizabeth, 88, recognized the efforts of the actress for her excessive work in fighting sexual violence and for her services to U.K. foreign policy.
The Maleficent star, who serves as a U.N. Special Envoy, co-founded the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative (PVSI) in 2012 along with U.K. Foreign Secretary William Hague.
Jolie spoke of the honor as she was made a dame in HRH’s Birthday Honors List in June.
"To receive an honor related to foreign policy means a great deal to me, as it is what I wish to dedicate my working life to. Working on PVSI and with survivors of rape is an honor in itself. I know that succeeding in our goals will take a lifetime, and I am dedicated to it for all of mine."
Zelda Williams Opens Up About Mental Illness
Today is #WorldMentalHealthDay. Mental illness is often misunderstood & misrepresented, but that's starting to change. Let's end the stigma.— Zelda Williams (@zeldawilliams) October 10, 2014
In honor of World Mental Health Day, Zelda Williams, the daughter of the late Robin Williams, paid tribute to her father on Twitter. The 25-year-old tweeted, "Mental health IS as important as physical health, & whether there are visible signs or not, the suffering is real. It can affect EVERYONE."
In a series of tweets following, she urged followers to support those fighting mental health battles.
"So please, let's help stop the misconceptions & support those who need our help. Healing the whole starts with healing minds. No matter what the misinformed say, you can't simply CHOOSE to make mental illness go away. It is NOT cowardly to suffer or seek help.
