Dear Gossips,

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. Full Story

Rafael Nadal and girlfriend Xisca Perello were at a wedding this weekend in Spain. Cuuuuuute! I love him! I love them! Rafa is enjoying some down time before he prepares for the final slam of the season, the US Open. Mostly they care about the title, but he and Novak Djokovic are #2 and #1 on the tour and the tournament will likely also determine who’s on top to end 2014. Full Story

And now Selena’s like, well I can be friends with a model, too! She was photographed today in Saint Tropez with Cara Delevingne. Full Story
