Beyonce’s bodyguard looks awkward in jeans at the beach. Couldn’t he have borrowed swimming trunks from Jay-Z? He might pass out from heat exhaustion if he tries to apprehend anyone that gets too close to Ms. B. [Monaco, 5/13/09] Keep reading »
Beyonce has sold more than 50 million albums worldwide and appeared in several movies, including her first non-singing role as Sharon Charles in “Obsessed,” which opens today. But her ultimate goal is to be on Broadway. “It’s my ideal job,” she told Reuters. “I’ll be able to go to the theater every day and drop my kids off and maybe make some food — maybe I’ll know how to cook by then — and then go do what I love and have some normalcy and have a regular schedule.”
Beyonce the entertainer is phenomenal, but Beyonce the actress is meh. Hopefully, she’ll hone her acting skills before making the leap to the theater. She’s totally skilled, however, to dance on any Broadway stage. [Reuters]
P.S. What do y’all think about the dress Beyonce wore to the “Obsessed” New York Premiere? Too tight? Too glam? Just right? Keep reading »
This weekend, Beyonce’s new movie “Obsessed” is opening, but it doesn’t look so (Sasha) fierce. Actually, it looks like something we’ve seen before. Many, many times.

Have a taste for the strange? Feeling a bit dark? In the mood for something ghoulish yet glittery? Check out this hand-jewelry created by twentysomething-year-old designer Delfina Delettrez Fendi, a fourth-generation member of the Fendi family. For a mere $24,000, you can own this jewel-encrusted piece of wearable art that’s part bracelet, part ring, and part exposed human anatomy. It’s a bit like the unique hand-piece Lorraine Schwartz designed for Beyonce that you can see here, but this one’s more romantic than robotic. Ectoplasmosis observes: “You’ll be the envy of just everyone as you sway to the strains of Sisters of Mercy, twenty-four thousand dollars of jewel encrusted carpals and silver metacarpals shining under the dim, dim lights.” If you could afford it, would you rock it?

Remember all the crazy talk after the inauguration about Michelle Obama threatening to ban Beyonce from inaugural activities because the singer was making goo-goo eyes at the president? Well, as we expected, that was just talk — Michelle is so above that! She seems to be the type of woman who plays her cards close to her vest, so she probably wouldn’t publicly confront Beyonce, even if she did suspect something was up. Not only that, but Beyonce says the First Lady thanked her before one of the inaugural balls for being a role model to daughters Malia and Sasha. Both First Daughters showed their appreciation for Beyonce when she performed at the “We Are One” concert in January. Beyonce said she was stunned when Michelle pulled her aside.
She told me that she was very happy that her children had an artist like myself and — I don’t even feel right saying this — she said she was happy they had me to look up to.
