“I love Beyonce. I do. But I was walking down the street and saw this huge billboard for the documentary she made about herself called ‘Life Is But a Dream.’ Underneath the billboard is this homeless guy, then there’s me with $2 in my bank account, and I’m thinking, Life is but a dream? I mean, I love you, B, but really?”
– Actress Gaby Hoffmann, former child star in movies like “Field of Dreams” and “Now and Then,” on not being able to relate to Beyonce’s lifestyle. For the record, Gaby doesn’t just have $2 in her bank account — she says she’s actually got around $4,000 — but admits to living paycheck to paycheck. “It’s just not that much if you don’t know where the next $4,000 is coming from,” she said. Also, Hoffmann fun fact: Her mom is Andy Warhol superstar Viva. [NY Times]
Following Saturday evening’s not guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman trial, Beyonce had a moment of silence and sang the chorus to “I Will Always Love You” for Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old Black boy who was killed by Zimmerman in February 2012. Watch it above.
B, you can chop off all your hair, strip off all your clothes, and slather your self in a shimmery rust-like substance, and the world still can’t get enough. The latest issue of Flaunt features a 2011 photo shoot of Blue Ivy’s fierce mama, who proves yet again why we are all inferior to her. In the magazine’s interview, she discusses her strong gay following, her collaboration with Pepsi, and … her ideal picnic? Something tells me though, subscribers might be looking more than they are reading. [Daily Mail]
Beyonce! She’s just like us. Insofar as, you know, we also love In-N-Out burgers and fries and champagne (Bellinis, perhaps?). The similarities end there … but what similarities they are! Any woman who thinks to pair a serious hamburger with a sparkling wine beverage is a woman after our own heart. [Instagram]
I’m so glad we live in a world where there is not just one Knowles sister, but two, and that we are free to love both of them equally. A few months ago, I went to see Solange — that’s Beyonce’s little sis, for those of you who do not keep up with the spawn of Tina and Matthew — perform and was struck by how different these two are. Solange is a lot more understated in her singing, in her style and in her dance moves. But oh, how the crowd loves it when Basement Baby gets her groove on! While Beyonce turns out all sorts of tricks at her immense live show, all Solange has to do to get her fans screaming is snap her fingers, roll her shoulders and shimmy her hips.
