Jay-Z and Beyonce: Busboys Say They Wed!

On Saturday, July 1, rumors flew about Martha’s Vineyard. Busboys and waiters everywhere said that Jay-Z and Beyonce were getting married on the island.

Locals said they saw an enormous tent being erected on Sunday on Chappaquiddick, a small island barely attached to Martha’s Vineyard and accessible by ferry.

Throughout the weekend, industry worker types said things like, “I got a buddy who was hired to put up tents,” but nothing as concrete as an engraved wedding invite or cake invoiced to Roc-A-Fella was ever produced. The weather on the island was gorgeous on Sunday, July 2—the day that a source for Jossip named for the wedding day.
