Beyonce may have banned the average concert shutterbug from snapping pics during her Mrs. Carter Show Tour, but that doesn’t mean she didn’t hire a photographer of her own and painstakingly edit his film down to only the most flattering shots of her at her most Sasha Fierce to release for public consumption. Click onward to see the pics Beyonce’s actually wants you to see of her performing. Flawless! Not an Incredible Hulk moment in sight!
As you might expect, Beyonce’s recent revealed tour rider requests are hilarious. Titanium straws? Practical! Hand-carved ice balls! Amazing. But my favorite Sasha Fierce necessity has to be red toilet paper. Why? Again, whyyyyy? And where might someone buy red TP? Oh, not to worry, I did a little research, and it turns out a company called Renova makes not only crimson red toilet paper, but TP in a variety of bright colors. So now, if you’d like, you can wipe your ass like Beyonce. And it will only cost you $5.99 a roll! I can only imagine how fierce my vag and butt will feel afterwards. [Renova Shop]
It’s finally here: the Andre 3000 and Beyoncé cover of Amy Winehouse’s song “Back To Black” for the “Great Gatsby” soundtrack.
I’m going to say something controversial: I don’t like it. It’s creepy. Imma let you finish, Andre 3000, but Beyoncé should have just sang the whole song herself.
But judge for yourself! Listen after the jump… Keep reading »
Gwyneth Paltrow generally leaves a bad taste in my mouth — a taste eerily reminiscent of wilted kale — but I am capable of appreciating aspects of her personality that are actually kind of endearing. Like the solid effort she put into the embarrassing task of imitating famous rappers like Jay-Z, Kanye West and Macklemore, on “Ellen” yesterday. Her Beyonce isn’t bad either. But that Chris Martin impression needs work.
Baby Blue hath emerged from her castle and has deigned to bestow her royal side eye upon us commoners! No, but seriously, Beyonce and Jay-Z brought the beloved future President of the United States (Beyonce says the job is hers if she wants it) out to lunch with them and, yup, she’s as cute as ever.

Remember when Beyonce performed at the Super Bowl and a whole mess of photos of her grimacing mid-dance move and/or high-note hit the web? Yeah, well Beyonce didn’t like that, to the point where her publicist actually requested that certain websites take them down. And now she’s taking steps to make sure an unattractive photo of herself during a performance never becomes a meme again by banning professional photographers from her Mrs. Carter Show Tour. Bey has hired her own photog team and will have final approval over which pics are released. This bums me out. I’m endlessly amused by a imperfectly-timed action shot. It’s a wonderful reminder that pop stars are human and look like they’re taking a painful dump when busting a move too. [Fstoppers]
