A copy of Lorde’s birth certificate has been presented to the world this week, courtesy of The Hairpin. The form proves that Lorde really is 17, which will no doubt anger the cult of “Lorde birth truthers” that believe she’s lying about her age and is actually much older.
I suppose there’s a possibility that the New Zealand birth certificate could be falsified by some bizarre stretch of the imagination, but who really cares? Apparently, the truthers do, and they insist that Lorde is 10 years older and pretending to be a child prodigy to rake in more attention. Keep reading »
Last night were the 2014 Grammy Awards! As per usual, they went on way too long and featured a lot of awkward dancing from Taylor Swift. But Bey and Jay were there! And so was Lorde! And the Highwaymen! So it wasn’t a complete loss. Let’s review the best moments in GIFs, pics and videos… Keep reading »
How could we have missed this? An a cappella group called Pentatonix (yes, people do a cappella outside of college) filmed a medley of 28 rapid-fire Beyoncé songs in only six minutes. All your favorites from the Bey ouevre make an appearance. “Say My Name”? Duh. “Survivor”? Check. “Single Ladies”? Yup. “Halo”? Obviously. Okay, some of these songs are from Destiny’s Child, but it still counts! The video was posted on YouTube in October, so it misses all the songs from Beyoncé’s latest album, BEYONCE. Maybe Pentatonix will do another one? [YouTube]
By the looks of the new photos Beyonce just put on her Tumblr, Blue Ivy’s 2nd birthday party puts all of my birthday parties over the years to shame, and not just because I typically plan them the night before in a last ditch effort. There was face paint, and dancing, and the other two-third of Destiny’s Child was there! Blue even got her own car. I didn’t get my own car until I was 19 and it was used. Blue Ivy continues to live the best lifestyle. The rest of us will just have to live vicariously through her. (NOW UPDATED to include photos of Bey posing with animals!) [Beyonce]
Does this woman sleep ever? Ever? Beyoncé has written an essay for The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back From The Brink, an investigation by journalist Maria Shriver in conjunction with the Center For American Progress, on the status of women in America today. Beyoncé’s essay, “Gender Equality Is A Myth,” can be read in the full report, which can be downloaded for free here.
After the jump, though, you can read an excerpt posted online.

I’m not saying Beyonce’s original needed to be fucked with, but this remix, featuring Busta and Azealia’s even more explicit rhymes on top of “Partition”‘s sparse beat, is a fine addition to your mega Yonce playlist. Hot. [Fader]
