Beyonce Knowles Gossip
Beyonce Knowles gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
How much do you think Universal paid Beyonce to be involved, somehow, in Fifty Shades Of Grey? When you work with Beyonce, it’s not just a song on the soundtrack either. It’s whatever Beyonce wants. If Beyonce wants to be the one to post a new teaser for the movie on Instagram, that’s what Beyonce gets. Worth it?
When Sarah from Cinesnark asked me about it yesterday, I told her that Fifty Shades Of Beyonce suddenly seems a lot more appealing to me. Beyonce + Sam Taylor-Johnson? Even better. Most of the time, a film is not better than the book. This time, the film will DEFINITELY be better than the book. Not that it would be hard, because you can’t get worse than that book and the “inner goddess” but it seems like Universal has the sense to spend money were it matters, complementing the property with the kind of ancillary support – in the form of Beysus, no less – that suggests that what we might be seeing in the movie is a lot more high quality than what we had to endure in the writing.

The MTV VMA nominations were announced yesterday. How do you get Beyonce to come to your show? You put her name in as many categories as possible. It’s not like she didn’t give them an entire album’s worth of chances.
The VMAs are happening on August 24th. Guess what? Beyonce just happens to be available. She and Jay Z take On The Run to San Francisco on August 6 and then they break until September 12 for two shows in Paris that will be filmed for the HBO special.
The last time Beysus was at the VMAs it was 2011. She performed Love On Top…and hijacked the entire show with a mic drop belly-rub to announce her pregnancy. I remember it vividly. Because Sasha was crying at me over text. Sh-t, even I was excited, and I don’t really get excited about babies. That’s Beyonce. Read Full Intro
On The Run. I need a day to process. It was a narrative for sure. And we debated it endlessly afterwards – what was her message? Or is the message just that it’s just a major mind f-ck? All I can tell you right now is that I never, ever, ever want them to break up.
As for how On The Run stands on concert quality – I’ll say this: better than The Mrs Carter Show. And when I say this, you know I mean it’s all in degrees of excellence, right? The Beyonce standard never dips below and A. It’s just…how far beyond A she manages to take it. A lot of it had to do with the quality of the interlude films. At times during Mrs Carter, those videos were kinda amateur. Now, I guess with all that work she did on the secret album-video drop last December, she’s figured it out how to make that aspect of her live performance even better. Read Full Intro

Check out the Carters, Beyonce and Jay Z On The Run in Philadelphia on Friday, celebrating the Fourth. At the end of the show, after Forever Young, Jay pulled B in for a hug and kiss. As you know, there were rumours all last week that Beyonce changed the lyrics to Resentment, and everyone was speculating that he cheated on her, and that she’s readying to leave him after the tour.

Beyonce and Jay Z’s On The Run stopped in Ohio on Saturday. During a performance of her song Resentment, which is about being cheated on, Beyonce, while wearing a wedding dress, changed a lyric in the song that many believe is a sign that the Carters are cracking, and that Jay stepped out on her, and that she’s publicly calling him out for it.

Rome fell, The Beatles broke up, even Melrose Place was cancelled eventually, because all great things must crumble, but will Beyoncé’s ruin be brought about by a ninth tier, never-really-was, Bravo reality star/VIP cocktail hostess? Right now, a woman named Casey Cohen, who you are VERY familiar with if you watched Princesses: Long Island and completely confused by if you didn’t, is working to deny a story from IN TOUCH that she’s been Jay Z’s side chick since meeting him at 1Oak, a club where she serves drinks.

I’m telling you up front: the following story comes from The Sun in the UK so, you know, we’re not exactly dealing with a great track record on accuracy here. They’re saying that Gwyneth Paltrow and Beyonce are going on a retreat for four days to some spa in California where they’ll spend time doing yoga and hiking and drinking wine and chilling out before B goes on tour with Jay.

Beyonce is on the cover of T, The New York Times style magazine. The profile features a Beyonce photo shoot…but no Beyonce interview. So, she agreed to appear in the publication and, for one reason or another, decided not to speak. Instead the writer discusses the Beyonce phenomenon, Beyonce’s footprint on the music industry, on pop culture, on the universe. Full Story

Beyonce was seen at her office in New York yesterday with some new very long braids. Sh-t. That must be heavy. I get hair headaches all the time just from the added weight of hairspray. Happily, Beyonce has stopped getting desperate on all her social media accounts to convince us that her perfect life really is perfect. Full Story
