Beyoncé steals Christmas

We’ve heard lots and lots of claims of Beyoncé’s diva-like behavior, with the occasional story about how generous she can be, but according to one video game company, she let them down when it really mattered.  Games development group Gate Five had a contract with Beyoncé to create a game with her as the main character, but it all fell apart when Beyoncé suddenly demanded an amount of money much greater than was previously agreed, and Gate Five had to walk away.

The worst part?  This all happened a week before Christmas, leaving 70 employees without a job during the holidays.  Gate Five are now suing for more than $100 million, not only to cover their own costs, but also the profit they  would have earned marketing a game with Beyoncé’s likeness on it.

Beyonce to release another song about how great women are

Don’t get me wrong, I like girl power anthems as much as the next person, but Beyonce is kind of becoming a one-trick pony with song after song about how fantastic women are.  Her upcoming single is entitled “Girls Who Run the World,” and, not surprisingly, it’s all about how girls run the world.

The track has leaked to the internet (or was purposely leaked), and it’s about as clubby and bass-heavy as you imagine it to be.  The song is going to be the lead single from Beyonce’s new album, which is probably going to be titled Ladies Kick So Much Ass or something similar.

Beyonce poses for controversial photos

French magazine L’Officiel is about to release its 90th anniversary issue, and Beyonce has posed for the occasion, in some photos that some might find a teensy bit offensive.  Beyonce, who has quite fair skin naturally, agreed to darken her face with makeup for the photos in order to appear more like an “African queen” and get “back to her roots.”

Why an African queen couldn’t have lighter skin is anybody’s guess, and it’s a question that will no doubt come up again and again, as the pictures have already ruffled a few feathers both in France and internationally.  Beyonce, however, stands by the photos, and L’Officiel’s statement is that Beyonce volunteered to wear the dark makeup, so that makes it okay.

Beyonce and Jay-Z to have super-talented offspring

It was announced early this morning that Beyonce and Jay-Z are expecting their first child, cutting off Beyonce’s plans to get in the studio and record a new album.  The pair are not only ridiculously rich and powerful, they’ve also got musical genes that are now being combined into some sort of super-child that we should probably be afraid of.

No word yet on the due date, only that Beyonce is in her first trimester, and she’s ecstatic about the news.  I can’t imagine that this baby is going to be anything short of phenomenally talented and, if Beyonce is anything to go by, impossibly good looking.

Source Claims Beyonce Pregnant for Real This Time

Rumors have flown before that Beyonce Knowles and husband Jay-Z had a baby on the way. This time, however, the gossip saying Beyonce is pregnant might just actually be true.

The latest rumor that Beyonce is expecting hit the Net on Thursday in an report on MediaTakeOut.com. Now, normally we don’t put much stock in pregnancy rumors – especially involving Beyonce – but this particular site has landed the scoop more than once in the past.

Jay Z is reportedly “EXTREMELY happy” to be having his first child with Beyonce, according to MediaTakeOut, and Knowles is allegedly feeling find and doing well. The site claims they learned about the baby news form a “ROCK SOLID” source, but we have heard that sort of claim before.

Until we hear directly from Beyonce or Jay-Z’s reps in an official statement, we’re not betting on this as fact quite yet. We do know that Jay-Z said only a few months ago that he can’t wait “to be a dad some day.”

If the rumor is true this time around, we offer up our hearty congrats to Beyonce and Jay-Z on the happy news.

Beyonce’s Mom Tina Knowles Files for Divorce Following Paternity Scandal

Beyonce‘s mom Tina Knowles has reportedly filed for divorce from estranged husband Matthew Knowles, seeking to end their 29-year marriage. Matthew Knowles was slapped with a paternity suit in October from a woman named Alexsandra Wright, who claims he is the father of her baby.

Tina Knowles reportedly filed divorce papers in Texas last month after the paternity suit from Matthew Knowles’ alleged mistress hit the press. 30-something Alexsandra Wright claims 58-year-old Matthew Knowles had an affair with her and is the father of her baby. No comment has been made from either side on the reported divorce filing so far.

Matthew Knowles is the longtime manager of daughter Beyonce while Tina Knowles was Beyonce’s original costume designer and helped launch the House of Dereon fashion line with her daughter in 2004. Millions could be at stake in a divorce battle between Beyonce’s parents.

Hollywood life just gets nastier every day.

Beyonce Cancels Concert in Malaysia After Protests

Pop diva Beyonce has cancelled a concert in Malaysia after protests from members of the country’s Islamic community calling the singer “immoral.”

The Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party issued a statement regarding the proposed concert saying Beyonce’s “skimpy attire and behavior on stage are immoral and lead to unclean behavior.” In the statement issued Monday, the organization included a veiled threat saying it opposes “the holding of such concerts and we will take action to prevent it.”

According to concert organizers, Beyonce has indefinitely postponed her appearance in Malaysia, though she has not admitted the cancellation was due to the protests against her upcoming performance. “The postponement is solely the decision of the artist and has nothing to do with other external reasons,” concert organizers Marctensia stated. Refunds will be issued to those who purchased tickets for the October 25 show.

Beyonce previously cancelled a concert in Malaysia two years ago after similar protests. Concert organizers stated a new date would likely be announced “shortly” and reps for Beyonce would be issuing a statement regarding the cancelled concert later this week.
