Beyonce Drops New Track “Formation” & Announces 2016 World Tour

Yes, I know "Formation" actually came out on Saturday, but I've got better things to do in life than shit my pants the minute Beyonce so much as breathes. I didn't actually listen until yesterday morning. Obviously I like it — the message is timely and really needs to be spread, so I'm with that, and the rich culture of New Orleans is always a welcome sight — but the way people have been losing their damn minds over this song/video simply because it's Beyonce is pretty obnoxious. If you've been reading Evil Beet for a while, you know I have a love/hate relationship with Queen Bey. I think she's phenomenally talented and accomplished and I love seeing women out there doing their thing, killing it and dominating in whatever field they pursue. Also, she has some great tracks spread out over multiple albums and I enjoy the fact that she's finally letting the "real Bey" (as in, not whitewashed as many of her early albums were) show. But she's someone who very easily oversaturates the market and then has to get out of my sight so I can get less sick of her for a while. "Formation" is a great track with an even better message, but the fact that people were literally making gifs and sacrificing their first born five seconds after the song came out — without actually listening to the music or appreciating the meaning behind it (because yes, pop music can be meaningful) — makes me want to hate it, if that makes sense. Have a listen/watch for yourself, if you haven't already:
And that's that. Like I said, I think this is a really timely release, done in such a way as only Beyonce could, so I'm loving it. Do I think it's the best song I've ever heard musically? Not quite, but that almost doesn't matter because I kind of feel like that's not the point here. In recent years, Beyonce has made an effort to release stuff that makes people feel empowered, whether it's women, people of color, whatever. The message behind that is more important than the melody itself at times, so it's hard to really judge a track on anything other than its cultural importance. ANYWAY, Beyonce's going on tour and here are some dates. Beyhive VIP members can start buying tickets tomorrow, which kinda blows that it's such short notice (her tickets are NOT cheap), while the rest of us peons will have to wait until February 16 to book.

Kylie Jenner Says She’s Not In Kompetition With Kim Kardashian

Kylie Jenner is... there are no words. At 18 years old, she's managed to look like a completely different person — Big Ang, to be specific — a transformation that took only about a year. In that time, she got herself a grown ass boyfriend, got butt implants, lip injections, new boobs, facial sculpting, and god knows what other cosmetic procedures. It's a shame, really, that she's ruined herself in this way, but she seems to be doing everything in her power to become the new Kim Kardashian, despite the fact that we don't even need the Kim we have, let alone a new one. However, in a new teaser video (that you need her actual app to watch the full thing of, as if), Kylie says in no way is she in a kompetition with Kim, because they're sisters, after all!
It's a shame, really, that the women in this family are so fucked up that they constantly pick dudes who fuck them over/are complete messes (all but Kendall, anyway) and feel the need to completely change themselves physically to resemble some bizarrely concocted version of perfection that just looks... plastic and wrong. That's not to say that I don't think women should get plastic surgery if that's what they really want — by all means, please do, if it makes you feel better about yourself — but more that it's clear the Kardashians have some fucked up self-esteem. Thank God Kendall's realized she's beautiful just how she is and is trying to stay as far away from this as she can. /> Kylie Jenner is... there are no words.

Rose McGowan Files For Divorce From Davey Detail, Whoever That Is

I'll be honest with you: I had no idea Rose McGowan was even married. Admittedly, I don't know much about Rose in general, other than that she's hilarious/badass on Twitter, but I guess she's been married to a guy named Davey Detail (LOL, for real?) for the past two years, and now that union has gone bad and they're getting a divorce. Thankfully, all seems pretty amicable, according to divorce docs obtained by TMZ:
According to the divorce docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Rose cites the boilerplate "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for ending her 2  year marriage to David Leavitt, who works as a visual artist. The couple had no kids and we don't know if there's a prenup. Rose's net worth is reportedly around $18 mil. The 42-year-old actress is asking the judge to reject any claim for spousal support. It looks like there won't be much of a fight, because the papers indicate there will be a "stipulated judgment," which sounds like a settlement between the 2 of them.
Yeah, the whole "spousal support" thing is fucking bonkers in any case. Any grown ass adult who tries to claim that they need their spouse's money to keep them in the lifestyle to which they've become accustomed needs to be punched in the neck. Assuming you're well and able-bodied, it's called "GETTING A JOB". It's rather simple to do - the rest of us manage it just fine. I know ol' Davey hasn't asked for this (yet), but just seeing the words kinda set my blood boiling and pissed me off, and I know it's a pretty common thing, particularly in celebrity relationships. Here's hoping Rose finds someone new or rocks her single status - whatever works for her. I think she's bonkers, but pretty great. /> I'll be honest with you: I had no idea Rose McGowan was even married.

Susan Sarandon Claps Back At Pierce Morgan Over Cleavage Comments

When Susan Sarandon stepped out at the SAG Awards last weekend, she was looking hot as hell. Donning a low-cut white blazer which showed her cleavage in a black bra below, she was killing it for ANY age, let alone the fact that she's literally 69 years old. The Internet loved it. Her fellow actors loved it. The only person who didn't like it? Piers Morgan, the morality police/the asshole so annoying even Britain doesn't want him. He came after Susan on Twitter, saying that since Susan wouldn't wear that outfit to a funeral, she shouldn't have worn it while presenting a memorial segment at the SAG Awards. Give me a fucking break. Thankfully, Susan pretty much thought the same and she immediately clapped back at Piers on the social network, which, while failing to shut him up, did seem to finally get him to come to his senses and realize what an asshole he was being and lighten up. Here's their exchange:
You would think Piers Morgan had better things to do with his time then go on a rampage against Susan Sarandon's cleavage, but I suppose you would be thinking wrong. Susan looks fantastic. If you've got it, flaunt it. /> When Susan Sarandon stepped out at the SAG Awards last weekend, she was looking hot as hell.

Vin Diesel Unveils ‘Fast & Furious’ Chapters 8, 9 & 10 Release Dates

I'm going to be honest with you guys: I can't stand Fast & Furious — any of them. Maybe it's just because I'm not into plotless action movies or fancy cars racing each other and bank heists, but I just don't see the appeal. There is, indeed, plenty of appeal, however. Universal Pictures revealed after the release of Furious 7 that it had become their highest selling franchise ever, so it's no surprise they want to keep this gravy train rolling for as long as possible. To that end, they've announced that there will be 10 Fast & Furious movies altogether, and the release dates for the next (and final) three have been revealed. If you can imagine yourself caring about this series for the next six years, then you'll be pleased! The final Fast & Furious movie won't be out until 2021, which, to write, feels like some faraway science fiction date but is actually coming up pretty quickly. Where are flying cars and our robot housekeepers like The Jetsons promised us? Instead, we get... more Vin Diesel racing custom sports cars. The future is looking bleak, man.

What do you think - are you excited about this? Will you go see it? Can you believe they're making TEN of these things? /> I'm going to be honest with you guys: I can't stand Fast & Furious — any of them.

Kate Winslet Is Glad You Still Ship Her With Leonardo DiCaprio

Aside from the brief side eye I had to give my girl Kate Winslet a few months back when she got all weird and basically said it's uncouth for women to talk about the fact that they're getting paid less than men in Hollywood for doing the exact same work (and sometimes more), I think she's cute. She's "my boo", as the kids would say, and I find her generally rather charming and extremely British and she's always enjoyable to watch in interviews. Her stop by Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night was no exception, and she spoke about how so many people consider Kate and Leonardo Dicaprio their OTP for life despite the fact that Titanic came out 20 years ago. Feel old yet? Kate not only revealed this week that she, too, believes that Rose could have definitely fit Jack on that floating door so he didn't have to die, but she also said that she thinks it's "lovely" that people get excited seeing her and Leo in one place. She thinks it's because people like Jack/Rose, but it's because we ship them as Hollywood personalities and can't understand why they didn't get together, to be honest.
Wake up and smell the coffee, Winslet. DiCaprio can't seem to settle down and runs through models as often as he changes underwear. As for Kate herself, she's on her third marriage with a dude who legit thinks "Ned Rock'n'Roll is a suitable name for an adult, and while things are going well, I think Leo is Mr. Right. And yes, I'm half being facetious because we know nothing about these people, so don't get your panties in a twist if you disagree. /> Aside from the brief side eye I had to give my girl Kate Winslet a few months back when she got all weird and basically said it's uncouth for women to talk about the fact that they're getting paid less than men in Hollywood for doing the exact same work (and sometimes more), I think she's cute.

Kim Kardashian & Amber Rose Post Best Frenemy Selfie Ever

After last week's Twitter fiasco in which we learned that Kanye West is a clinically insane, misogynistic scumbag and likes women to play in his asshole, the tables have seemingly turned. Kim Kardsahian and Amber Rose posed for and posted the best selfie of frenemies ever taken, and both women posted it to their respective Instagram accounts. What does it all mean? I have a few ideas. Obviously all this shit was for press, because when does Kim (or Kanye, for that matter) do anything that's NOT for press....
