Beyoncé named #1 of Time’s 100 Most Influential People


Apparently Beyonce is the most influential person on the planet! Good grief, really Time?

Time Magazine named the singer #1 out of 100, beating out competitors like Hillary Clinton, Pope Francis and more.

It’s a most momentous occasion for the singer. Her co-luminaries include Hillary Clinton, Kerry Washington, Phoebe Philo, and Donna Tartt — definitely good company. But the accompanying Sheryl Sandberg–penned blurb reveals that Beyoncé has ascended to the rank of fully formed pop-feminist icon.

With the Sandberg endorsement, she’s shed the empowered jilted-lover spokeswoman and diva status that earned her a spot on the 2013 Time 100 issue (as “Diva”). After her year as the hardest-working mom on the world-tour circuit, a Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie sample, a handful of DGAF innuendos about self-love and championing lady parts, an essay about gender equality, and her very own Lean In commercial, the transformation is complete. Beyoncé’s guide to feminism is forthcoming.

Sandberg writes of Bey, “… her answer to the question, What would you do if you weren’t afraid? appears to be ‘Watch me. I’m about to do it.’ Then she adds, ‘You can, too.’”

Inspiring stuff. I am truly inspired, even though I’ve been Beyoncé-watching for some time now, and I still can’t figure out the mechanics of her Power Woman hair whip.

Do you agree with Time’s pick?

Beyonce & Jay-Z Don’t Want To Attend Kim Kardashian & Kanye West’s Wedding

Beyonce & Jay-Z Don't Want To Attend Kim Kardashian & Kanye West's Wedding

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are rumored to be tying the knot in Paris next month, but they can count out two people who won’t be making the trip. Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z have declined an invitation to come to Kimye’s wedding — because they don’t want to be on television with these clowns. Does it get any better than this?

From the “Daily Mail”:

Jay Z and Beyonce have reportedly turned down an invite to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s wedding.

The 99 Problems hitmaker and the Pretty Hurts star are said to have rejected the chance to attend the nuptials, which are expected to take place in France, because they don’t want to appear on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Can you really blame them for not wanting to be a part of the reality TV bobblehead circus that Kimye’s wedding is destined to become?

Beyonce & Jay-Z Trying For Baby #2?

Beyonce & Jay-Z Trying For Baby #2?

Are Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z trying to have another baby? That is the rumor that is making its way across the internet today, suggesting that Bey and Jay want to make their daughter Blue Ivy a big sister!

A new report states that the pair are looking to have another baby now that Beyonce is all done with her world tour. A source close to the couple said, “They’ve been trying since February. Her friends are convinced she’s already pregnant. The same things that happened during her pregnancy with Blue Ivy are happening again.”

There are reports that Bey has changed up her diet, is letting her go natural and is “always blushing and giggling.”

On a different note, Bey opened up to “Out” magazine about her album “Beyonce”. She said, “Women should own their sexuality. Men are free and women are not. That is crazy. The old lessons of submissiveness and fragility made us victims. Women are so much more than that. When I recorded XO I was sick with a bad sinus infection. I recorded it in a few minutes just as a demo and decided to keep the vocals.”

She continued, “I lived with most of the songs for a year and never recorded the demo vocals. I really loved the imperfections, so I kept the original demos. I spent the time I’d normally spend on backgrounds and vocal production on getting the music perfect.”

She added, “I’m very happy if my words can ever inspire or empower someone who considers themselves an oppressed minority. We are all the same and we all want the same things: the right to be happy, to be just who we want to be and to love who we want to love.”

Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian aren’t really BFF…


Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé are soon to be as good as sisters once Kim marries Kanye West, who is pretty much like a brother to Jay-Z. It’s all very much one big happy family… except not really, because apparently Beyoncé doesn’t like Kim all that much and even tries to avoid her when she sees her in public.

An eyewitness to the ladies’ awkward encounter at Dr. Howard Lancer’s Beverly Hills office tells Radar that when Kardashian arrived, she “seemed so excited to see Beyoncé and was really eagerly going over to her.”

“But Beyoncé looked like she wanted nothing to do with Kim and was really trying to stay away from her,” the source says. “Kim was basically fawning all over her!”

The two women did have a brief chat, with Blue Ivy’s mother asking about Kardashian’s daughter North West.

According to the source, proud mama Kardashian gushed over the baby, saying, “It’s so good to be a mom and North is great and I love being with her. She’s just amazing.”

However, Kardashian’s attempt to bond over mommyhood was not exactly well-received.

“Beyoncé looked like she couldn’t have cared less …,” the source continues. “It seemed so clear that she did not want to talk with Kim and was just being polite to her. They really didn’t look at all like friends.”

Now, I personally don’t see why this is such a big deal. Lots of people “aren’t friends” and it’s not newsworthy – they’re simply not buddies, and there’s no reason these two have to be. Some people just don’t really get along, or they do but there’s no massive connection there. But of course, the press has to pit women against each other, so that’s that.

To be honest, I would probably feel the same as Beyoncé, but whatever.

Beyonce is photoshopping her Instagram pics.


Beyonce is currently on vacation with her family, and has been sharing pictures on Instagram the whole time.

The 32-year-old singer posted two new photos yesterday, showing her playing gold in a bikini.

In the picture above, it’s easy to see someone has photoshopped her thigh gap. It is unnatural and pretty obvious, if you ask me.

What do you think? Photoshopped?
