Quotable: Beyonce Uses The “F-Word”

“I think I am a feminist in a way. It’s not something I consciously decided I was going to be; perhaps it’s because I grew up in a singing group [Destiny's Child] with other women, and that was so helpful to me. It kept me out of so much trouble and out of bad relationships. My friendships with my girls are just so much a part of me that there are things I am never going to do that would upset that bond. I never want to betray that friendship because I love being a woman and I love being a friend to other women. I think we learn a lot from our female friends – female friendship is very, very important. It’s good to support each other, and I do try to put that message in my music.”

Beyoncé isn’t afraid to use the f-word! Not that I’m surprised to hear this from the pop star who brought us “Independent Woman,” “Single Ladies,” and “Bills, Bills, Bills” [CORRECTION: Oops! I mixed up the lyrics of "Independent Woman" and "Bills, Bills, Bills." Yeah, that last one is not very feminist at all!]. [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »

Watch This Instead Of Working: “Telephone: The Office Version”

ZOMG, this parody of Lady Gaga and Beyoncé‘s “Telephone” is totally brilliant — even if the Frisky offices are nothing like “The Office.” Anyone who manages to rhyme the words “passive-aggressive micromanaging man whore” is my new hero! Keep reading »

Beyoncé Misses Being Hit By A Taxi By Inches

Beyoncé and her hubby Jay-Z were heading to Harrods department store in London earlier this week for a mini shopping spree. As Beyoncé was about to step out of their Mercedes, her car door was ripped off at its hinges by a taxi speeding by. The cab missed Beyoncé by only a couple of inches. And thank goodness! Nobody runs over Sasha Fierce! Needless to say, she and Jigga never made it to Harrods. Add the not-so-single lady to the list of celebs who’ve cheated death. [Fox411] Keep reading »

“Single Ladies” Tots Have Danced “Sexy” Before


They’re baaaaack! Remember the little girls who did that super amazing but sorta sexy dance to Beyonce’s “Single Ladies,” and people went nuts over whether it was appropriate or not? Well, their parents hit the morning shows last week saying the dance performance (posted on YouTube) was “taken out of context.” However, it turns out that that was not the first time that gang of 7-year-olds donned sparkly tube tops and popped their booties on stage. Behold, the sexiest take on “My Boyfriend’s Back” that I’ve ever heard/seen. Look, the sucky thing about this “scandal” is that it’s detracting from the fact that these girls are amazzzzing dancers, so skilled at such a young age that if they were to continue their studies, they could seriously go on to professional careers. And some might argue, myself included, that the over-the-top sexiness of some of the moves (and the costumes) are not only inappropriate for their age but distracting from their talent as well. What do you think? [PopEater] Keep reading »

First Look: House Of Dereon Bedroom Collections

Beyonce and mom Tina Knowles are bringing their luxe style to a department store near you. Their home decor lines, House of Dereon and Dereon, feature bedding influenced by Europe, bohemian chic, and dressmaking. Both lines will offer sheet sets, coverlets, comforters, pillow shams, and decorative pillows, but the embroidery-oriented House of Dereon caters to the more adult and sophisticated consumer, whereas the more print-oriented Dereon collection is for the 15 to 30 year olds. Think of it this way: House of Dereon is for the master bedroom and Dereon is for student or recent grad’s bedroom.

Little Girls Tear It Up To “Single Ladies”


I took dance lessons when I was a kid. I wasn’t very good, and looking back at the Sears Portrait Studio-style snapshots of me, all gussied up in my sequins and garish makeup, I realize I looked pretty ridiculous too. I — and the rest of my jazz dance class — were never ever as, um, advanced as the little 7-year-olds performing Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)” in the video above. I want to be clear: these gals can dance. They’ve got the moves. But, like, isn’t this song a little weird for children to be dancing to? They’re doing some of the original Bob Fosse moves, but the rest of it is full of gyrating and rather stripper-y. And what’s up with the bordello crop tops and panties? Oy. Keep reading »

Beyonce’s “Why Don’t You Love Me?” Full Video


I told you my opinion of Beyonce’s “Why Don’t You Love Me?” video based on the preview she released over the weekend. And I have to admit I was only half right. She’s definitely scantily clad, but the video is extremely entertaining. The “Why Don’t You Love Me?” video is like candy for the eyes — there’s something to look at everywhere, but the imagery isn’t overloaded. Plus, Bey’s body is perfect for mid-20th century clothing. I also enjoyed her campy-on-purpose acting. Nyom, nyom, nyom, that’s me eating my words. Keep reading »

Beyonce Is From Houston, Lives In NYC, But Has A Brooklyn Tattoo

Is this a nod to the home turf of her hubby, Jay-Z, who’s from the borough and bought the New Jersey Nets specifically to bring them back to BK? [NYC, 5/2/10] Keep reading »

Beyonce’s “Why Don’t You Love Me” Video Preview: Why Won’t She Try Something New?

“Why Don’t You Love Me” – Sneak Peek from Beyonce on Vimeo.

Beyonce released a preview for her “Why Don’t You Love Me” video this weekend. The song is a bonus track on I Am … Sasha Fierce (Deluxe Version). It seems Bey enjoyed her Bettie Page look in the “Video Phone” video because she took another nostalgic turn as Rosie the Riveter. But this time Rosie has shed her factory uniform for Daisy Duke shorts, thigh-high stockings, and a midriff-baring shirt — you know, the same sexy garb we’re used to seeing Beyonce wear. From the preview, it looks as if this will be another video full of beauty shots of Beyonce’s heavily made-up face, butt, and boobs. Which is kind of disappointing because I think the concept of Rosie the Riveter as a homemaker doing the male and female chores could have been really entertaining — especially since the cinematography, lighting, and setting are so beautiful — instead of what I expect will be campy soft-core porn and a lot of mesmerizing gyration.
