Okay, so Daniel Craig picked Rihanna over Beyonce to portray a future Bond girl in an interview because Riri is “dirtier.” First of all, duh. Second of all, Bey has probably already learned her lesson from acting across from Mr. Mike Myers in Goldmember. While we draw up a pitch for our RiRi-centric Skyfall sequel (Ugh, why did Denise Richards have to take the Bond girl name Dr. Christmas Jones? Ruin our plans, why don’t you?), peep our 5 fantasy picks for our Bond girls. (Other than Rihanna, of course.) (Duuuuuh.)
Admit it. You get this glowing sense of well-being when you see Jay-Z and Beyonce together. It’s like — all is well with the universe and even if it isn’t, it’s going to be very, very soon. That’s what we felt like when we saw the celebrity mega-couple at the Toronto Raptors vs Brooklyn Nets game at Barclays Center on home-ground in Brooklyn, New York on Saturday. Jay’s part owner of the Nets, so while he was doing his duty and lending his support, the larger picture here is that it’s so cool that the game went on as scheduled considering we just went through Sandy a week ago. We’re doffing our imaginary hats to New York and to all the folks working around the clock to get things up and running and back to normal again. Jay and Bey’s presence also gave us a little bit of a jolt, which felt like it was much needed. Maybe it was because our Lady B was wearing, as she always does no matter what, six-inch Giuseppe Zanotti patent leather d’Orsay killer heels? We’re not even going to get into her crazy Tibi ensemble (it looks like a jumpsuit, but they’re actually separates) because its an optical illusion that we can’t begin to figure out, but her bangs are super cute! Speaking of super cute, how adorbs are these two together? Cue the picture below.
See what we mean? It’s killing us! And there’s more. Read more…
Halloween is almost here, and it’s definitely not just for kids anymore! These days it’s less about the mini candy bars and more about the seriously hot mini outfits. October 31st has become the unofficial the last gasp of bikini season, the final strip-off before winter sets in and everyone turns into Slanket mummies for 6 months. But for now, the goal is to be the most creative with the least amount of clothing. And no one does that better than Hollywood A-listers! These stars have brought us some truly awesome costumes over the years. Who could forget Kim Kardashian as Jasmine, Mariah Carey as a scantily clad bride(?) and Snooki as…the Queen of the Pickles? We think? Okay, we’ll be honest: we don’t know what a lot of these outfits are supposed to be. But that’s the magic of Halloween: We don’t have to! It’s the one night of the year where it’s not skanky, it’s a costume! Tons of stars and starlets have stripped down to celebrate over the years, so we’ve assembled the 75(!) most scarily sexy costumes of all time. Just think of it as a big basket of fun-sized Snickers on a doorstep and a sign that says “Help Yourself.” Dive in!

Beyonce confirmed late last night that she would no longer be starring in the Clint Eastwood-helmed remake of A Star Is Born. “I was looking forward to the production of A Star Is Born and the opportunity to work with Clint Eastwood,” she said a statement to E! News. “For months we tried to coordinate our schedules to bring this remake to life but it was just not possible. Hopefully in the future we will get a chance to work together.”
Back when Beyonce announced her pregnancy in 2011, Warner Bros. reportedly had to scrap plans to shoot the movie in February 2012. Now we’re wondering what turned the delay into a permanent cancellation of their collaboration. Here are a few wild guesses:
- Obama pal Bey didn’t feel comfortable working with Romney supporter Clint. Plus his RNC chair performance made her worry about his sanity.
- She heard Bradley Cooper wasn’t going to be in it after all, and is secretly crushing on him, like the rest of the world.
The above photo is what’s caused all sorts of hysteria over the idea of Beyonce being pregnant again, eight months after giving birth to Blue Ivy. Now, of course, this isn’t unheard of. A lot of women are extra fertile after having a baby, so you see a lot of siblings born so close together. But we can hardly call a little bit of rounding in a skintight Roberto Cavalli dress incontrovertible proof that Beybey #2 is in the oven, as MediaTakeout exclaimed on Monday. We know Beyonce was working out a million hours a day and not eating anything good in order to lose her baby weight in time for her Atlantic City concerts this spring. Do you blame the girl at all for taking a break and having a piece of bread since then? If you saw any normal woman looking this slim within a year of having a baby, you would be astonished at how much weight she lost.
Helping or not helping this new rumor: The denial from Beyonce’s mother. “It’s gonna happen when it’s time, but not right now,” Tina Knowles said. Which, she would probably say whether or not B were actually pregnant. Also, you can point to the fact that Beyonce has a giant glass of cognac in her hands in this photo from Sunday night. But then again, “witnesses” said she never actually sipped from that glass.
Much to our disappointment, there weren’t any cameras allowed to document President Obama’s fundraiser hosted by Jay-Z and Beyonce last night. Well, none except the very official one that took the pic above, which was posted to @BarackObama earlier this afternoon. And that tweet was shortly followed by a nod to International Talk Like a Pirate Day (today) — a photo of the president talking to a pirate with the caption “Arr you in?” And Obama’s appearance on Letterman last night gave the show its highest ratings since 2010. Clearly, the president’s philosophy on mixing with pop culture is controlled but broad-reaching. It’s the kind of populist approach that garnered him the youth vote in 2008, so he’s sticking with it.
On the other end of the spectrum, we now know that Republican candidate Mitt Romney is very cautious about appearing on shows, as he said in his infamous (“47 percent”) fundraiser video posted by Mother Jones this week. Now that he’s appeared on Leno more than Letterman, he told supporters, “Letterman hates me now.” Though he was asked, he said he won’t be appearing on Saturday Night Live, because, “You want to show that you’re fun and you’re a good person but you also want to be presidential and Saturday Night Live has the potential of looking slapstick and not presidential.”
Have we really not had a truly epic VMA beef since Kanye went totally Kanye and snatched Taylor Swift‘s mic in 2009? How time flies. Tonight the MTV VMAs honor those artists who have crafted a truly superior piece of visual art to accompany their music. But a well-crafted celebrity feud? Well, that’s even harder to come by. So we went ahead and predicted some fantasy VMA celebrity feuds for them, just to get the ball rolling! It’s like using The Secret, except you probably shouldn’t use The Secret to have someone yank out Lana Del Rey’s weave…
The MTV Video Music Awards are known for having one of the most varied guest lists in showbiz, creating mind-blowingly random Hollywood juxtapositions. Many unexpected duos are tapped to present awards together, and sometimes folks are feeling friendly and just want a picture with their secret celeb crush.These unexpected pairings sometimes could be the musical collaboration of our dreams, much like Lady Gaga and Cher appearing side by side (with a side of beef) back in 2010. Or they could be the nightmare we wish would end, like the legendary meeting of Kanye West and Taylor Swift in ’09. Who would have thought teen sweetheart Mandy Moore would want to be hugged up with the creepy Marilyn Manson? The VMAs have given us some insanely wonderful worlds colliding moments over the years, so we’ve made a gallery to celebrate our favorite. Head down bellow to check out our 20 Most Unexpected VMA Pairings of All Time. Let’s hope we can have another 50 Cent and Paris Hilton moment this Thursday!

It looks like Beyonce won’t be making a guest spot on Keeping Up With The Kardashians anytime soon. Despite Kim Kardashian’s numerous attempts to get close to Bey, the diva apparently just isn’t having it. Even though boyfriend Kanye West is close friends with Beyonce’s husband Jay-Z, their relationship is rumored to be strained at best. The iciness was illustrated this weekend at the Made In America music festival in Philadelphia, where Jay was performing. Despite both turning up with their respective beaus, the former Destiny’s Child singer apparently gave Kim the cold shoulder!
“Kim and Beyonce barely spoke to each other,” a witness told Confidenti@l. “They were on opposite sides of the stage. Beyonce didn’t even acknowledge [Kim] was there until the concert was almost over.” Kim apparently hung out with her best friend Jonathan Cheban while her boyfriend took to the stage to do a surprise duet with Jay-Z during the festival. But then the awkwardness continued after the show. “They made small talk in the dressing room, but you could tell Kim was uncomfortable. She clung onto Kanye the entire time and didn’t say much,” says another source. “[Kim] was talking to Jonathan, and Kanye was talking to Jay-Z and Beyonce.” So we’re guessing that we don’t have a new addition to our celebrity besties list. But Yeezy and Jay’s cuteness more than makes up for it.

It can’t be a coincidence that Beyonce was born right in the heart of MTV VMA season. The Queen Bey is just as much a part of the show as the Moonman, putting in a showstopping appearance nearly every year for over a decade. It’s fate, you guys! Or should we say, destiny. Ever since her Destiny’s Child days, she’s lit up the stage with a killer combo of jaw-dropping outfits and fierce dance moves. And who could forget last year when she announced on the red carpet that she was expecting little Blue Ivy Carter? The diva legacy lives on. We wonder what surprises she’ll have for us on Thursday night! Beyonce has become an icon of the awards show, and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate her 31st birthday than by checking out her hottest VMA outfits through the years. Enjoy!
