Abercrombie & Fitch’s Battle Over Beyoncé’s Fragrance Is Getting Fierce

Poor Beyoncé is having a rough week! First, everyone thought she was involved in some kind of conspiracy with Kanye West and Taylor Swift at the VMAs. Now Abercrombie & Fitch is suing to stop the diva from naming her forthcoming fragrance “Sasha Fierce,” for which Beyoncé filed a letter of intent with the U.S. Patent office back in September. But as it turns out, that lingering stink on your clothes the last time you got within a 60-foot radius of an Abercrombie & Fitch store could have been one of their men’s colognes called “Fierce.” (Can you see where this is going?) A&F filed its lawsuit yesterday, saying Beyoncé has ignored their cease-and-desist letter and has proceeded to develop “Sasha Fierce.” Methinks this lawsuit is just an A&F publicity stunt though, since no one would seriously wander into the temple of suburban preppydom searching for Sasha Fierce’s perfume. Still, one wonders if Beyoncé will buckle and change the name of her parfum to something else? “Bootylicious,” perhaps? [WWD] Keep reading »

Kanye West Rains On Taylor Swift’s MTV Video Music Awards Parade


The MTV Video Music Awards were on for less than 30 minutes when … CONTROVERSY. The first category of the night was “Best Female Video,” and Taylor Swift won for “You Belong With Me” over Beyonce‘s “Single Ladies” and Lady Gaga‘s “Poker Face.” Taylor started giving her “I’m just a country singer” acceptance speech, when Kanye West entered from stage left. He grabbed the mic out of Taylor’s hands and said, “I congratulate you Taylor, but I gotta say … Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time.” Keep reading »

Chris March Files Lawsuit Against Thierry Mugler Over Beyonce’s Costumes

Chris March is usually very jovial and humble when he’s competing on “Project Runway,” but sometimes a man has to put his foot down if he’s being disrespected. March has filed a lawsuit against fellow designer Thierry Mugler for allegedly not paying him for the work he did on Beyoncé’s “I Am” tour costumes. Now hold on a sec before you get all hot and bothered. Mugler did design the costumes, but March executed them because he’s used to designing for the stage and “wild” dancing. March says he had to figure out a way to attach a harness into one of Beyoncé’s costumes and had to mold corsets to fit her figure perfectly. Everything was going smoothly, says March, until he submitted his last payment invoice after getting the finished costumes to Edmonton, Canada by March 26, the day of Beyoncé’s first show. March says Mugler left for Paris without paying anyone. (Beyoncé had paid Mugler and he was supposed to pay his team.) March told The Cut, “There’s just been a refusal to pay with no reason.”

This seems to be an oversight. I doubt Mugler handles his own invoices. Though, it’s too bad that the seven-year work relationship between these two has to end this way. Keep reading »

Will The Madness Ever End? Beyonce Does Daywear

It’s not that there is anything particularly wrong with Beyonce‘s clothing line. It’s just that the usually cheap-looking threads, well, don’t come cheap. That’s why news that they’ve gathered enough of a customer base to expand is a touch surprising. The House of Dereon (or House of Dead Wrong, depending on your taste), is adding yet another category to its roster: day-wear. By way of explanation, Sasha Fierce’s mom Tina Knowles told Women’s Wear Daily:

“Beyonce and I have had several occasions where we are in meetings all day and don’t have time to run and change by dinner. This is the perfect collection to wear from the office to dinner because every piece can easily be dressed up or dressed down.”

They’ll debut in stores at end of the year and are estimated to range in price between $100 and $200 per piece. Um, yay? [WWD] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Beyonce Rocks (?) Curly Bangs

We noticed our good friend Courtney Dunlop over at the Stylelist blog posted this rather disturbing pic of Beyonce out on the town wearing one of the most questionable hairdos of all time, the curly bang. (Although maybe she just needs to read our post about how not to look a hot mess?) It seems like even a star of her caliber is having trubs pulling this look off, leading us to pose the question: Can curangs ever look good? [Stylelist] Keep reading »

Beyonce, Lady Gaga, And Britney Spears Top The MTV VMA Nominations

My pubescent pop-culture adrenaline soared to dangerous heights for MTV’s Video Music Awards back in high school. And still, it’s fun to see who made the cut. So get your ballots ready, cause the nominations are in! “Single lady” Beyoncé and Lady Gaga each have nine nominations, tying for the top spot. Britney Spears has the third-highest number of nominations—she reeled in seven. We’ll have to wait until September 13, when Russell Brand hosts the show for the second year in a row, to see who walks home with the most moon men. Maybe they should start making a moon woman?

Kelly Clarkson Gets Beyonce’s Sloppy Seconds

Kelly Clarkson‘s new single, “Already Gone,” probably sounds a bit familiar. That’s because you’ve already heard the music in Beyonce‘s love ballad, “Halo.” Evidently, music producer Ryan Tedder stupidly gave both ladies the same track, although they wrote very different songs to go with it. Beyonce beat Kelly out of the gate and by the time Kelly heard “Halo” and tried to stop the release of her song, it was too late. This snafu is causing all kinds of radio confusion—when Kelly’s song starts to play, people are expecting to hear “Halo.” And Kelly is very worried that people will label her a copycat.

Compare the two videos for yourself after the jump. Keep reading »

Did The Recession Kill The Weave?

Full disclosure: We absolutely adore Solange Knowles’ new haircut. Yeah, we hear the snickers about it being an obvious ploy for attention. (And regarding its success, some of you may def beg to differ). Well, we think it works! With one cut, she’s accomplished what her normally over-the-top styling never seemed to do: make her look chic, edgy and radiant. We’ve also noticed that Rihanna, Cassie and even Ciara are all leaders of this new school of short, chic, and recession friendly ‘dos. Because if you think about it, rocking pounds of weave is not only high-maintenance, but expensive. Don’t you wish other stars like Beyonce, Tyra Banks and Britney Spears would take a cue and ditch their hair extensions? Actually, we take that last one back. We all remember Britney’s epic attempt, which resulted in an epic FAIL. Still. Have you done any chopping lately in order to save time and money? Keep reading »

Nia Long Disses Beyonce’s Acting

Some people applaud the triple threat, the complete entertainer who dances, sings, and acts (to some extent). But Nia Long makes a great argument to the contrary, and she goes after Beyonce in the process. Nia told Pride magazine that singers should sing and rappers should rap, and casting should reflect talent, not box office-draw. “I didn’t see ‘Obsessed,’ so I can’t comment, but it’s just not about how talented you are anymore. It’s about, ‘How much box-office revenue will this person generate,’” the actress said. “When you see certain people — we won’t name names — they just don’t have the skill, and no one in their team has said, ‘You need acting classes.’” Nia does, however, commend Jamie Foxx for being able to sing and hone his acting craft.

Beyonce Sweats Over Paparazzi Photos

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!
