Okay, everyone go home now. Ton has won the internet and our work here is done. Ton is a big fan of Beyonce and to prove it, he made this absolutely incredible video, recreating Bey’s “Countdown” video — only he’s wearing a Snuggie and the setting is, like, his parents’ rec room. Ton, if Beyonce sees this and doesn’t invite you to come live with and Jay-Z and Blue Ivy, I will lose faith in humanity. [BlackBook]
Beyonce is super stoked for newly out R&B singer Frank Ocean, and to show her support, she did what only Bey-Bey could: She posted a poem for Ocean on her website. The rather repetitive verse encourages Ocean to be himself and be an inspiration. Would we expect anything less from Beyonce, really?
After the jump, seven more soulful celebrity poets (including Charlie Sheen — yes, really).
All praise to whomever spent the endless hours it took to produce this incredible new episode of “Got 2 B Real,” the diva variety show.

Welcome to the Diva Variety Show, featuring Aretha “Hateretha” Franklin, Chaka Khan, Patti LaBelle, Rihanna, Beyonce, Dionne Warwick, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey and Fantasia. As Chaka Khan says, “Shut your shade throwers, open up the blinds.” [YouTube]

Beyonce and husband, Jay-Z, are pregnant with their second child. The Crazy in Love singer, and mother to 5-month-old Blue Ivy, is said to be about two months along with her newest bundle of joy.
MediaTakeOut.com reports that a source very close to the couple confirmed Beyonce will probably spill the baby beans about her new arrival sometime around the end of the summer. Although Beyonce hasn’t told the source flat out she was with child, he said there have been tell tale signs. Apparently the singer has put the kibosh on the drinking. “She didn’t drink any alcohol [for weeks] and we’ve ordered Petrus & Champagne multiple times. And Petrus is her favorite wine! It just wasn’t her.”
And she’s also started taking folic acid pills again. As every woman knows,folic acid pills are primarily used when a woman is planning on getting knocked up or already is. Read more …
“Sasha Fierce disappeared, but y’all bringing her back.”

Who would Michelle Obama be if she could be someone else? Beyoncé. Just one problem: The first lady can’t sing. “Gosh, if I had some gift, I’d be Beyoncé.

It seems Bey wasn’t planning on going at all, but then that purple Givenchy gown showed up at her house that evening (because gowns are always just showing up at Beyonce’s house, apparently) and poof! She changed her mind. As her date, Andre Leon Talley explained, “Beyonce was not slated to come. She decided to come last minute when the dress arrived at her house. She tried it on and then she said, ‘Okay, I have to come.’ She did arrive at 8:55 and the ball had already started, but it didn’t matter because she is Beyonce.” How true, A.L.T., how true.
