Last night, pedestrians in the city of New York got the surprise of their lives when they spotted ‘A Star Is Born Actress‘ Beyonce making her way through the city, accompanied by her mother Tina Knowles and her now infamous baby bump.
Reportedly leaving her own office building, her sighting will be sure to silence those who had suggested that she had given birth to her baby during the Christmas period.
It also arrives after close friend Lady GaGashared her thoughts on the entertainer’s pregnancy in an interview with ‘The Insider‘.
Peep these shots of a casually dressed Rihanna on her way into West Hollywood tattoo parlour yesterday.
Reportedly on her way to get some work done for herself, her sighting comes hours after she was named the highest selling digital act in US chart history, surpassing the efforts of fellow entertainers Beyonce, Katy Perry and Lady GaGa.
For an artist who had previously been reluctant to jump on the craze that is social media, triple threat song bird Beyonce‘s online credentials are pretty impressive, to say the very least.
Indeed, with over 2 million followers despite the fact that she has never graced the world with a tweet and over 29 million ‘Likes’ on her official Facebook page,social media has slowly but surely helped to reaffirm the singer’s status as one of the world’s most celebrated women.
Now, following the false report that she had given birth to her first child with husband Jay Z, the entertainer has recently scored even more online feats.
As reported yesterday, Miami dance machine Jason Derulo unveiled news of a neck injury recently sustained during rehearsals for a recent world tour. Despite assuring fans just last night of his well-being and intent to soon resume rehearsals for the tour (set to begin mid-February), today saw the crooner singing a different song.
Originally set to tour the U.K. from February through March and follow-up with an April Australian tour, the 22-year-old confirmed via statement today that all plans of touring have been cancelled. The announcement follows word that while no longer hospitalized from the accident (that could have left him paralyzed), the ‘Don’t Want To Go Home’ hitmaker will be confined to a neck brace for an undisclosed number of months.
“To all my fans who planned to come to the Future History World tour, the pain of letting you down cuts me way deeper than this injury I’ve sustained. My fans mean everything to me, so I’m praying for a speedy recovery in order to perform for you in the near future.”
Classic! R&B songbird Mariah Carey had either seen one too many butterflies or she was clearly trying to cover up a poo-poo mess by putting a backup singer on blast for her own ‘vocal malfunction’.
This 2008 performance on Good Morning America saw the Grammy-winner hot on the promo trail for ‘E=MC 2’, the follow-up to her 2005 critically/commercially acclaimed comeback album ‘The Emancipation of Mimi’. Lending a live performance of her then (and last) #1 smash ‘Touch My Body’, the song may have led her ‘E=MC2’ album to #1 on the album charts, but another formula was about to lead Miss Carey to shame…backing track + malfunction = red face.
For, as the song’s seemingly simple arrangement grew more difficult for the once-soaring songbird to deliver, Mimi wasn’t looking too emancipated as she stiffly struggled through the set – relying heavily on the backing track. And then, as Milli Vanilli would have it, the playback on the backingtrack went wicky wack. We’re sure Ashley Simpson was to blame. Unlike Vanilli or Simpson, however, Mimi has proven time after time she’s got the chops. Just a little mixup we suppose.
Maybe she should take a leaf from fellow diva Beyonce‘s book…’Sound!…somebody’s getting fired!’
As previously reported, former Dirty Money & Danity Kane captain Dawn Richard has earned fan favor with her Brandy-esque track ‘Save Me From U (SMFU)’. The dramatic, black-and-white clip is the first unveiled from the songstress’s forthcoming ‘GoldenHeart’. Despite first making rounds on the net over two months ago, last week’s trailer tease certainly amped anticipation for this Ev Salomon-directed clip, now available for viewing in its entirety.
Does the ‘GoldenHeart’ hitmaker strike gold? You decide after the jump:
In case you didn’t know, ‘Never Ever‘, the oft celebrated 2009 cut jam by Pop belle Ciara was co written by fellow ATL-er Keri Hilson.
Indeed, while this remains one of Pop’s best keep secrets, today saw the surfacing of Hilson’s very own take on the track which is reported to be the demo Harris used as the blueprint for the song’s final cut.
