Hey guys: Thanks to the Beyonce Soundboardt, instead of communicating feedback as regular ol’ boring Amelia, I will now be addressing you as Beyonce. If I like your blog ideas for the day? That gets a “Good Good.” Especially impressed? “GOD DAMN.” Oh yeah, and my outfit today? “I WOKE UP LIKE THIS,” obvs. I’m pretty sure I can find of why of responding to any query or comment you may have with a Beyonce soundbite. If I can’t, it’s probably not worth a reply anyway. Now, BOW DOWN BITCHES. (Check out the whole Soundboardt here!)
If you listen to the radio at all, “Drunk In Love” is probably stuck in your head on a repeating loop most days. I love it as much as the next girl, but how about giving a new rendition of the song a shot? No, Kanye’s remix doesn’t count. Katy B brought a dark, pensive side to Bey and Jay’s latest anthem when she mixed it with Tanishe’s “Vulnerable,” and I’m addicted. It should be noted that a certain unnecessary lyric is nowhere to be found in this rendition and the song is still just fine without it. [The Hairpin]
I love each and every song on Beyonce’s recent self-titled album, but I have a special soft spot for “Drunk In Love,” her collab with husband Jay Z. I mean, it’s sexy, fun to dance to and hilarious. Surfboart? “Graining on that wood”? “Her breasteses are my breakfastes”? While the song is perfect as is, that didn’t stop Kanye West from trying to make it better by remixing the song with some of his own lyrical flourishes. Take a listen after the jump and let me know what you think in the comments! Keep reading »
When Amy Poehler and Will Arnett called it quits, I was totally bummed. When Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel were dunzo, I despaired. Don’t even get me started on Britney and Justin, whose demise I am still not over. With the devastating demise of Hollywood relationships, it’s easy to throw in the towel and give up all hopes of lifelong love. If the beautiful, talented and rich can’t make it work, what hope do the rest of us have?
That said, lasting celebrity romance does exist. And this Valentine’s Day, let’s see what Oprah dug up on what keeps some of Hollywood’s favorite couples going. She sat down to talk about the marriages of Beyonce and Jay Z, Tina Turner and Erwin Bach, Stephen Colbert and Evelyn McGee-Colbert, Magic and Cookie Johnson, and Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness. As the celebs talked about their ups and downs and what keeps their love alive, I may have teared up a little. At the end of the day, they’re just like the rest of us! [Huffington Post]
I didn’t think it was possible for me to love Beyonce and Jay Z’s collab “Drunk In Love” any more than I already do, but then I saw U.S. Olympic ice-dancing duo Meryl Davis and Charlie White skate to it (by which I mean, the music was synced and dubbed over their routine) and, well, my love increased tenfold. Is it that Beyonce makes ice dancing better or that ice dancing makes Beyonce better? Hard to say. Regardless, this routine is ***flawless.
