Beyoncé‘s Mrs. Carter tour is going strong, but lots of fancy staging means lots of lights and fans to keep her costumes blowing glamourously or whatever. Well, things didn’t go so well during a recent concert when, during a performance of ‘Halo’, her hair got stuck in a fan and security had to get her free. Here’s a vid of the unfortunate incident:
Luckily, it all worked out for Queen Bey and she was eventually freed from her bladed prison. That’s kinda terrifying and I’d be scared that I’d never get my hair untangled and then they’d have to cut it all off or I’d get scalped or something.
Anyhow, Bey later joked about the incident with a hand-written ditty on her Instagram page. Of course the stans in the comments thought it was the most incredible thing ever and more proof that she is JUST THE MOST AMAZING WOMAN. I thought it was cute and in good humour, but like… calm down, people. It’s nothing special.

Beyoncé is telling fans to put their cameras, “to the left to the left, every camera you own in the box to the left.” Okay, not really, but like The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, our Queen B is getting sick of people seeing concerts through their phones. Here’s what Mrs. Carter said, and ironically, it’s caught on someone else’s video camera. From NecoleBitchie:
See, you can’t even sing because you’re too busy taping, I’m right in your face baby, you gotta seize this moment baby! [...] You better put that damn camera down!
What is with Beyoncé’s fans misbehaving at concerts lately?
Here’s the video:

Beyoncé is an icon and no one can disagree with that even if you can’t stand her. I’ve been personally realising more and more lately that I actually love Solange even more than Beyoncé, but that’s neither here nor there. The point is, Bey is massive and there’s nothing anyone can do to stop her, which is sort of respectable in its own way.
The Queen herself stripped down for a new shoot with Flaunt magazine and also gave a mini interview with some weird ass questions in it. Here are a few highlights:
What’s up with gluten anyway?
I’m okay with gluten. Sunday pizza is a must for me!
What famous piece of architecture might you most like to do some necking in?
The Louvre, or under the Arc de Triomphe. Paris is a beautiful, sexy city.
Some were critical at your participating in a Pepsi campaign after you moved your body for childhood obesity. Where is the balance between your career objectives and your philanthropy?
Pepsi is a brand I’ve grown up seeing my heroes collaborate with. The company respects musicians and artistry. I wouldn’t encourage any person, especially a child, to live life without balance.
When you work out, take care of your body, rehearse as hard as I rehearsed in the commercial, I think it’s great to have a Pepsi or Diet Pepsi when you want one. It’s all about choices.
What is your favorite kind of stain?
What’s boring to you?
Lack of creativity.
Milk stains? LOL, I suppose this is in reference to Blue Ivy and the joy of being a mother, etc? I dunno, but I still like Beyoncé. She does at times come across as very rehearsed, but I think that comes with the territory of being a worldwide superstar. I’m not here to know the ins and outs of Bey’s everyday life, I’m here for her to entertain me, and she does that. Plus, she’s a fuckin’ BOSS. If you’ve ever watched any of her documentaries/behind-the-scenes stuff, you’ll see how strong she is in her work and her ideas. If she doesn’t like something, you’ll know about it and it won’t happen until it’s right. I like that about her. That’s all.
Here’s a few more naked Beyoncé pics.

Mathew Knowles got hitched last Sunday, but TMZ has learned neither of his daughter … Beyonce nor Solange … was in attendance for the big day.
Knowles tied the knot to Gena Avery in Houston, TX following a year and a half engagement.
But the newly-hitched Knowles tells TMZ his famous kids couldn’t make it to the ceremony, saying, “Unfortunately, Beyonce and Solange had previous engagements which made it impossible for them to attend.”
You know what, it sucks, but I get it. Sometimes the timing is all wrong and you have to work. And if it’s hard enough for your average Dave to get out of work to go to a family’s wedding, it’s gotta be 10x harder for Beyoncé because she has no one to cover for her (assuming of course, that work is the real reason…I guess “previous engagements” could be a nice way of saying “I’m mad you divorced mom so I’m not going to support you.” I don’t know). Solange Knowles, though, really? Cannes is over. Where else do you need to be and what else do you need to do?
Hopefully Mrs. Carter sent her dad a case of champagne…and In-N-Out burgers.

Jennifer Aniston recently went all, “waaah I can’t handle a Big Mac, even though I ate a cobb salad every day on the set of Friends, waaaahh wah wah.” Well, Beyoncé is nothing like that, everyone. Not only does she enjoy a fast food cheeseburger, but she enjoyes it with champagne. THAT’S HOW YOU DO IT, ANISTON. Bey posted this photo on her Instagram:
Looks like that’s a bellini she’s drinking. Either someone was joining her or she really loves champagne. Oh God that looks so good. Even though In-N-Out’s fries are ass.
And listen up: yes, being a native LA douche, I realize that In-N-Out’s food is way better than McDonald’s. However, the Big Mac is delicious and compared to a cheeseburger at In-N-Out, as opposed to comparing it to a Gwyneth Paltrow happy meal, the two are equally “bad” for you. Point being, if Beyoncé can handle a fast food cheeseburger, anyone can. That includes you, Aniston. And I think Mrs. Carter looks pretty damn great.
What’s your favorite fast food?

I don’t know if Jay-Z and Beyoncé are gunning to be the godparents of North West or what, but they apparently bought Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s new baby $7,500 worth of presents just for being born. WHAT?
From The Sun:
KANYE WEST and KIM KARDASHIAN’s ludicrously named nipper North won’t have the shame of a third-hand Scotland strip to worry about – especially not with superstar family pals like BEYONCE and JAY-Z.
The couple showed up at gran KRIS JENNER’s Beverly Hills gaff with more than £5,000 ($7,500) of presents for the nipper.
They brought a load of posh baby gear to commemorate the birth, including personalised Christian Dior baby booties.
They also splashed out on a three-piece sterling silver Elsa Peretti Padova baby set with North’s name engraved on each item.
The fork, spoon and cup set is one of the most popular baby gifts sold by fancy jeweller Tiffany’s.
A source said: “Kanye is one of Jay-Z’s closest friends so he wanted to get the best gift. They’ve had a girl themselves, so they know the right type of present.
“They also brought their baby girl Blue Ivy to come over and meet North.
“She’s old enough now to be really interested in babies. Any bad blood between the ladies has all been brushed under the carpet now Kim’s a mum – Beyonce was even sharing weight-loss tips with her.”
Christian Dior baby booties? WHY? What a colossal waste of money, considering the kid is going to grow out of them in, like, a month. I really don’t get why celebrities feel the need to spend so much money on such dumb things. I’ve always said that even if (WHEN – I’m Secret-ing that shit) I get rich, I’ll still be shopping at Target and looking for bargains because I’m cheap as hell. I mean, there’s certain things I’ll splash out on – I like gadgets and fancy computers and stuff – but beyond that, I’ll be clipping coupons. (I kid, I’m not quite that bad.)
Anyway, I guess it’s nice to see that poor little North West won’t be going without.
