• Jay-Z To Gift Beyonce With Custom Made Diamond Heels For Her 34th Birthday

    While we’re still busy putting the final touches to Beyoncé’s birthday card (which we’re sure she’ll remember forever and ever, of course), reports claim Jay-Z has already got her present totally sorted. According to The Sun, Jay-Z has gone all out for Bey’s 34th birthday, splashing out on some custom-made, diamond-heeled Manolo Blahniks. No word on how much the glamorous present cost Jay-Z, 45, but we can only assume we’d have to sell every single one of our belongings to afford just one of the diamond shoes.
