Y’all know I like Beyoncé - I don’t think she’s as mind-blowingly incredible as some people seem to, but I think she’s fierce and incredibly talented and most importantly, very hard-working. However, even though she’s earned the diva title doesn’t mean it’s cool for her to act like one, and that’s apparently exactly what she did at V Festival last weekend, according to Travis frontman Fran Healy.
From The Daily Record:
The Glasgow band were on the same bill as the Crazy In Love singer last weekend at the V fest and Fran says she turned parts of the backstage area into a no-go zone.
Fran protested: “Beyonce locked down the entire backstage area for an hour. Everyone was affected.
“You’d ask ‘Can I just go there?’ and they’d say ‘No. You can’t cross this little street’.
“Everyone was just following orders from the gang. I guess that’s how Americans do it but it’s not how we do it in the UK.
“She was headlining the main stage and was half an hour late.
“The whole area was cut off as if there had been a nuclear disaster.”
Yeah, that’s pretty obnoxious. And also LOL at the “that’s how Americans do it” comment. I feel like whenever anyone from America does anything shitty in the UK, they wonder if it’s an American custom – it really cracks me up.
More on topic, sounds like Beyoncé was kind of a dick. Matter of fact, I know she was – she refused to let V Festival live stream her performance even though they planned on broadcasting the whole festival for those who couldn’t be there. Girl, nobody was trying to see your ass (Glastonbury was enough for me) – I’m just mad I missed Jessie Ware, Ellie Goulding, Kendrick Lamar, Rudimental… you get the point.
Sounds like someone needs to be brought down a pegs.

In another feeble attempt to harken back to the days when her career was on the ups, she was making good music and anyone gave a shit, Lady GaGa has revealed that she’s made a follow-up to ‘Telephone’, her track with Beyoncé that appeared on The Fame Monster EP. I like to give credit where credit’s due, and that’s a damn good song, so no hateration there… but really? “Eh, my new shit is kind of tanking, so maybe I’ll make a follow-up to an old song that did pretty well…” Eyeroll.
From an interview with Kiss FM (via DS):
“It is surely coming. I’m very excited to be filming it and doing it. I will say that one of the songs I will be playing at the Roundhouse is meant to be the continuation.
“I’m very excited about it. The ‘Telephone’ video and working with Jonas Akerlund – for ‘Paparazzi’ as well – was such an incredible experience.
“To finish this trilogy will be great as I know how much the fans want it. We’ve already written it, so it’s going to be fantastic.”
I mean, whatever and all. I’ll listen to it and it might be the best thing about her new material. I just think it’s a little weak to pretend that it’s something you’ve always wanted to do and something the fans want. I’ve never heard a single person, while listening to ‘Telephone’ or thinking about it say, “Damn, this is such a good song! The only thing that would make it better is a sequel!” Then again, I don’t hang around any Little Monsters because I value my dignity and sanity.
No word whether Beyoncé will participate in the follow-up fuckery.

Everyone bugged the hell out when Emma Watson cut her hair off a few years back, marking the end of her Hermione Granger years. However, even more people lost their shit when Beyoncé unveiled her new short ‘do last week, and even though Emma’s grown hers out in recent months, she was thinking of going back to the boy cut after seeing Queen Bey’s.
Nearly got out my scissors this morning after seeing @Beyonce 's pixie cut. I only just managed to restrain myself. Close call though..

Well, that’s nice, but I personally think she suits longer hair better. Also, I feel like everyone is cutting their hair off lately and not a lot of people can carry it off – it’s a very specific look. Also, I totally didn’t know Emma Watson had Twitter. You learn something new every day, folks.

Beyoncé got a pixie haircut and posted the photos, so if you’re wondering why the Internet suddenly stopped, that’s why. Maybe she got it cut because she got her hair stuck in a fan, or maybe she just wanted to try something new.

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:
