If you’re dying for a Beyonce medley dance at a gay wedding, well you sir are in GOOD HANDS. I actually saw this live because the limber man front and center is my bf’s newly married brother. ENJOY and share so Beyonce can see this and maybe hire him on as a backup dancer. He already knows all the moves!!!
Don’t you wish this was your life: Beyoncé edition
I want to be her. The images of Beyonce at the beach make me happy, in the sort of “you’re really rich, talented, famous, beautiful and successful, and I bet that drags you down a lot. I’m so glad you’re on yachts in the ocean with wifi, your sister, and a personal chef.”
It’s really cool to look through all her photos, because they aren’t just paparazzi shots. Paparazzi shots have a double dose of wicked behind them. You see Beyoncé at a basketball game in a magazine or blog, but seeing similar photos on her own blog puts a personal effect to it. Instead of a “STAR SPOTTING!!!” it’s date night at a b-ball game with beer, shitty food and Jay. In a way, it normalizes her vastly non-normal, high class life. Check out the rest of her pictures here. They are beautiful and awesome.
Just fucking beautiful.
Zetus Lapetus! Foo Fighters want to record in space!!!
Zetus Lapetus! I bet you haven’t heard that in a while!
The Foo Fighters reportedly want to record in SPACE. They would be the first rock band, or any band for that matter to do so. Maybe they’ll back Newt Gingrich and have a music recording sesh party on the moon! Nah, they can do it without his crazy lurking around craters and harshin’ their vibe. He’d probably murder them and steal their music. Who’s the pirate now, Gingy?
This is a totally cool idea. And totally part of the plot of Zenon Girl of the 21st Century, that I am DYING TO WATCH now.
I guess Beyoncé and Jay-Z wanted to be firsties to record in space. And to be honest, they certainly have a TON of money and connections, probably more so than the Foo Fighters do. But for some reason, I think rock music in space would be way cooler than R&B/hip-hop.
I don’t doubt that Bey and Jay could make some sick music in the space waves, but I don’t you think rock music would sound even more badass in space? Plus, Protozoa showed us it’s pretty f-ing cool.
Besides, it may look a little something like this (ok it won’t at all but shit, it’s Protozoa!!!!!!!):
Celebrité: Photoshop madness, Beyoncé edition
How far is too far when it comes to Photoshop?
The latest photoshop outrage has hit the net in the form of Beyoncé’s lighter-than-usual skin color. The questions begin: Is it just bright lighting, a weirdo and possibly pseudo or fully racist photoshopper, or Beyoncé supported lightening of her skin?
As far as photoshop regulation goes, the UK has placed a ban on misleading makeup ads, meaning that any celebrity or model that looks flawless and wrinkle-free on beauty product ads are subject to investigation (seeing as we see these women in movies and on perezhilton with obvious wrinkles, but when it comes to selling beauty products they miraculously disappear.) False advertising= huge no-no in Britain. But the deeper sociological question lies in what the message of lighter skinned and physically altered models sends to the public, namely women and young girls.
It’s no new idea that manipulating women’s, i.e. celebrity’s bodies and faces to look thin, wrinkle free and sometimes perfectly robotic, has left an unreachable impression of the female form for the rest of the country, let alone the world.
The question remains in America. With our overly exposed entertainment industry and an undying thirst for everything perfect perfect perfect, when is it time to stop the photoshop? Are the celebrities themselves so hell bent on “having it all” that they insist on perfection in every photo they take? Or is it something deeper than that?
Also, who ARE the people who photoshop black women lighter, models even skinnier and celebrities without limbs? What’s their beef with people as they are? Or is it their upper management telling them what to do? Getting rid of blemishes and cellulite by way of photoshop is understandable, but some of this is undoubtedly taken too far.
