While Beyonce failed to give us that fifth album fans have been dying for, she did make good on the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. If there was one thing that kept us talking about Beyonce, it was the tour itself. Thanks to paparazzi, phone-addicted fans and social media, we were able to keep up on every moment of the tour.
As if she needed the publicity or something, Beyonce knows how to win the Internet with a single snap of her fingers. Or maybe three. She posted three photos on her Tumblr today that hit all of the things that make us click.
Our biggest personal nightmare is standing naked onstage in front of a crowd of people. But it looks like these celebs don’t share that fear, because they do it night after night! Sure, they might not be “naked,” but they’re definitely lacking the usual amount of clothing. The fact that they can still perform is pretty amazing! These ladies are definitely pros…
We’d like to wish a very happy 44th birthday to one Shawn Corey Carter, better known as Jay Z. The one and only HOV is celebrating his birthday by—we kid you not—going vegan for the next 21 days. “On December 3rd, one day before my 44th birthday, I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan, or as I prefer to call it, plant-based!!” he wrote on his Life and Times website. Well, while we’d certainly prefer to spend our birthday going H.A.M. on a frosting-covered ice cream cake than eating seitan, we applaud Mr. Magna Carta Holy Grail not just for his commitment to healthiness, but for the lady he’ll have by his side during this cleanse: Miss Beyoncé Knowles Carter.
We are hard at work here at VH1 headquarters burning off the calories we put on over the long Thanksgiving weekend by pulling together our lists of the Best Albums, Best Singles and Best Videos of 2013. As we take a look back, though, we couldn’t help but notice that some of 2013’s Most Anticipated Albums never actually came out! While we were blessed with tons of great albums to listen to this year, there’s still a part of us that can’t help but wonder “How come that Beyoncé album never came out, anyway?” (EDITOR’S NOTE, 12/13/13: Beyonce had an album, after all! She dropped her eponymous album tonight out of the clear blue!) Or, as Fred Willard’s character in A Mighty Wind would say, “Wha happened?”
As we all know, Jay Z isn’t a businessman, he’s a business, man. And one of his latest ventures launches nationwide today — a men’s cologne called Gold Jay Z.
