Beyoncé and Jay-Z recently took a yacht for a little cruise in the Mediterranean last week, where they apparently spent over $31,000 on alcohol in the span of five days. Nice – I guess that fits the description of diva behaviour. According to The Sun, the pair loaded up on Belvedere vodka, Rémy Martin cognac, plus Dom Perignon and Armand de Brignac champagne – all of which are quite expensive, I suppose. I dunno, I don’t drink.
What’s hilarious is that all of their money went on the alcohol and not on food, because on board they apparently kept chicken nuggets, hot dogs, Skippy peanut butter and Cheerios. Wow – that’s pretty high brow food! Don’t worry, there’s no hateration from my end – that’s all good eats, as far as I’m concerned. The issue here is the $31k on alcohol. I can think of SO MANY THINGS to do with that kind of money and not one of them involves alcohol. Here’s my short list:
1. Finish paying off my student loans
2. Get some new clothes for winter
3. Go on vacation!
4. Go for dinner at Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck in Berkshire
5. Buy my dog a deluxe dog house
I could go on and on, but you get the drift. What would you spend $31k on?

Lady Gaga and Beyoncé both employed the services of Norman Oosterbroek, superstar bodyguard. But in a very bizarre story, he couldn’t protect himself after he broke into a house (naked), fought with the homeowner, appeared to take some sort of drug, got tasered by cops, and then died. E Online has the strange story:
According to Miami-Dade Police, officers responded Monday night to a report of a man terrorizing a couple at their mansion in Pinecrest, Fla.
Cops arrived to find the 43-year-old Oosterbroek naked and fighting with homeowner Markus Jung, whose wife, Christiane, had called police.
Ooesterbroek and his family were reportedly leasing a home in the same neighborhood.
Police said that they witnessed the security company owner swallow an unknown substance during his violent confrontation with Markus Jung and he resisted officers’ attempts to calm him down and get him into custody.
One officer zapped him with a Taser in order to subdue him, NBC 6 reported, after which he was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
“It’s possible that he may have been under some type of a narcotics. Again, he was observed swallowing, ingesting some kind of substance, unknown substance that is,” said Miami-Dade Police spokesman Detective Javier Baez. “I would like to know what really happened, because I don’t understand why a naked man is going inside a house and for what.”
Oh, of course it happened in Florida. What a sad and weird situation for everyone. None of it makes sense.
Though summer’s technically not over, I think it’s time to take a look back at everything that happened these summer months. There was a LOT. What do you think was the most shocking? The most WTF? The best fashion moment? Let’s vote!
Which birth was the bigger deal?
Lady Gaga is back. Are you excited?
Who was more annoying this summer?

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.
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.
She’s going for I guess a sort of Michelle Williams (not the Destiny’s Child one) thing. I think I like it?
Beyoncé's pixie cut: thoughts?
