Beyonce may be bootylicious but don’t expect to see any more pictures of her shaking her derriere in her Dereon’s while she’s on tour…at least not from the back. According to the New York Daily News the singer has ordered photographers not to snap pictures of her backside during her I Am…Sasha Fierce world tour because she sweats too much!

Teen girls should be able to express themselves. That’s the point of Beyoncé and Tina Knowles’s new juniors collection for their already established label (Déreon), called Sasha Fierce, after Beyoncé’s album character. Says Tina, “[The collection] is edgier and trendier and reflects Sasha Fierce’s daring and outgoing attitude.” Edgy is a mild way of putting the “back-to-school” looks that include curve-hugging minidresses, one-shouldered dresses, black bodysuits, and fingerless gloves and f**k-me pumps.
So far, Beyoncé has been a fairly solid role model as someone who exudes a huge amount of confidence, is sexy without being slutty, and projects a solid image of family and relationships. But, we have to ask…would you let your teen go to school dressed like this? [WWD] Keep reading »

This must just be the week of frivolous lawsuits!
Beyonce has filed a federal lawsuit in New York against a group of people who are selling bootleg copies of her CDs and other knock-off merchandise at her concerts around the world.
According to TMZ, her legal team hasn’t been able to track down exactly who’s selling the unauthorized goods (how you sue an unknown person is a mystery to me), but they’re anticipating the sales continuing at Bey’s upcoming Madison Square Garden concerts on June 21st and 22nd so they’re trying to get a judge to rule the merch illegal.

The Jonas Brothers are a little behind on putting out a “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)” tribute, but we still appreciate Joe Jonas’ attempt at doing Beyonce’s signature moves while wearing a unitard and heels. Our only question: How does he not know all the words?! Keep reading »
Not sure if you want to spend $3.99 on this month’s Vogue? Don’t worry, we’ve got Leonora Epstein, Frisky contributor and former lady mag slave, here to tell you exactly what’s up on the sex, love, and relationships front in each month’s crop of lady mags.
Bikini season is upon us, and this month is all about dropping pounds through detoxing and exercising all so you can look good in that suit (they’re filled with those, too). Beyoncé is everywhere, too…but then again, when isn’t she? Read on to see how we graded these issues. Keep reading »
We get it, Beyonce, Sasha Fierce is great at dancing. Now can we have an exciting video, please? I’m rather disappointed by the crop of videos Beyonce is putting out for her I am…Sasha Fierce. The “Diva” video was just a mash-up of her other videos. And now “Ego” looks like it was filmed the same day she did “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).” “Ego” would have been perfect for a video that told a story, but Beyonce only has time for a tried and true trick. You’d think Beyonce, who wants to be a celebrated actress, would take any opportunity to act instead of continuing to shake her butt. Keep reading »

African-American women may spend almost eight billion dollars a year on beauty products and cosmetics but they still can’t get no satisfaction. That’s what a new study by Essence magazine revealed. During a breakfast conference at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York this week, a panel, which included Essence’s beauty editor Mikki Taylor and legendary makeup artist Same Fine, discussed the findings.

Beyonce tells Self that her dream of winning an Oscar is what keeps her in shape. She has a painting of the golden statue in her gym, she explains. “I look at it, and I’m like, OK, I have to stay in shape,” she said. I don’t get the connection between winning an Oscar and staying in shape. Jennifer Hudson proved that smaller sizes aren’t the ones winning Academy Awards. Maybe Beyonce was trying to take a dig at Hudson, who didn’t look her best when she won the Oscar for her role in “Dreamgirls,” which costarred Beyonce. Let’s face it, B. isn’t a great actress — she’s slightly better than mediocre — so she should probably give up her dream or at least stop talking about it. Her performances as a singer/dancer to be more entertaining. Saying her love of unitards forces her to stay in shape would have made more sense. [E! Online] Keep reading »
