Beyonce' & Jay-z Wedding flix PRICELESS

Beyoncé insists she never would have considered selling photos of her hush-hush wedding to Jay-Z to a glossy celebrity magazine. Still, the singer acknowledges that she was amazed at the amount of money that was offered.
"Now, they offer crazy money that's just ridiculous," she said in a recent interview, laughing. "But in the end, absolutely not. It's so not worth it. If anything, if you wanna put something out, then put it out, not for (money)."
Beyoncé -- whose new album, "I AM ... SASHA FIERCE," is due next Tuesday -- married Jay-Z in April in an intimate ceremony in New York.
"We worked really hard at keeping it private," she said. "I've always been this way, and he's always been this way, so that's why we complement each other."

Jay-Z has all but confirmed that The Blueprint 3 is not coming out in 2008. When Hov premiered his new record, "History," on Angie Martinez's Hot 97 New York radio show last week, Martinez playfully reminded him that he was supposed to be coming out with an album this year. Jigga countered that he'd never told anyone that the album would be dropping this year and didn't know where the speculation came from.
Well, maybe we got the idea from the fact that two big singles from the album have been heralded on the hip-hop scene for months already, "Jockin' Jay-Z" and "Swagger Like Us" (and though the latter appeared on T.I.'s Paper Trail, Jay has promised it would be on B3 too).
While in Europe for the EMAs last week, Kanye West, who has produced a gaggle of tracks for Jay's new album, shed a little light on what's holding up the highly anticipated album.
"I mean, it's phenomenal," West told MTV Base. "We went in and we done the whole album. He wanted to do a few more joints, so he kinda pushed it back. Now we're gonna go in and just work on some more records. So I got some more stuff to kill it with! I think [Jay pushed the album back because] 'Swagger' just did so incredible. We wanted to go up [and make sure] everything was on that level."
Speaking of albums we were checking for. Don't think we forgot about 'Ye's would-be fourth LP, Good Ass Job. For years he had talked about the follow-up to Graduation. Obviously, he changed his changed his mind and decided to depart from the school theme for 808s & Heartbreak, which drops on Monday, November 24. As for a return to Good Ass Job, Kanye says he hasn't set his sights that far yet.
"Well, I wouldn't put the pressure on myself to do another album; it's like whatever happens, happens," he said humbly. "I'm still thinking of a lot of music. I mean, I'm thinking of a lot of lyrics, and if it comes to me, I just go into the studio and do it and then drop it now. So it's not a whole bunch of gimmicks and marketing, I let the other people do the marketing. ... I'm just like, 'Dude, just figure out how to put the music out.' "
