Amal Alamuddin, a 36 year old London-based dual-qualified English barrister and New York litigation attorney who has long been a high-profile figure in international refugee and human rights law has gone against the trend for professional women in her field and married… an actor.
This is how the website The Business Woman Media starts off its post about “internationally acclaimed barrister” Amal Alamuddin’s wedding to an actor by the name of George Clooney this weekend. Much hullabaloo has been made about the notorious bachelor finally settling down, as if his bride has struck gold, but let’s face it, with her many degrees, fluency in multiple languages, and an impressive career in international law, Alamuddin could easily be described as out of Clooney’s league. Kudos to The Business Woman Media for flipping the script on the way celeb weddings are typically reported. Oh, and of course, congratulations to Mrs. and Mr. Alamuddin on their nuptials!

Go ahead, call me naive, but dammit if I’ll ever believe another rumor about the breakdown of Jayonce’s marriage again after watching HBO’s “On The Run” special on Saturday night. The love between them was palpable! It could not be denied! They flirted, they giggled, they made eyes at each other, they joked around, and they showed the audience and viewers at home a montage of the besssssssst behind-the-scenes moments, including a number of shots of darling Blue Ivy, to close out the show. While the footage won’t be anything new to those of you who were lucky enough to attend the On The Run tour, it’s now been made available to us all, so we can rejoice in the love between Beyonce and her her hype man, I mean, her husband. (Sorry, but as much as I love Jay Z, his solo performances pale in comparison to her dance routines, sets and constant costume changes.) Watch the couple perform “Young Forever”/”Halo” spliced with home movies from their real life, including a pregnancy photoshoot, a pushup contest, and many other tender, loving moments above. I will never doubt you again, Jayonce.
