Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Two new Beyonce tracks have leaked… sorta


Beyonce is set to release a new album soon, and the Beyhive is desperate to hear what it’ll be like. Luckily for the fans, snippets of two tracks – one called ’7/11′ and another called ‘Ring Off’ – have leaked online. The verdict? Eh… I don’t quite know, really.

First, let’s listen to the bit of ’7/11′, which sounds like a continuation remix of ‘Drunk In Love’ or something. Have a listen:

And next, it’s ‘Ring Off’:

I get that Bey is really embracing her hood roots and I love that about her, but I just don’t know about this. Again, these tracks feel like further ruminations on what she started on the self-titled album, and I’m sure it’ll be good and do really well because hello, it’s Beyonce, but she’s really hitting up the experimental phase in her career, it seems – and I don’t know what it all means, really. Ah, well, we’ll just have to wait and see. We should know something either way on November 24.

Beyonce has been (badly) Photoshopping her pictures again

Beyonce is hot. We’ve all seen her in the flesh – in REAL candids, like in concerts, at awards shows, etc. We know what she looks like. So why is she still so insistent on not only Photoshopping her pictures, but doing it so badly?

Bey runs a very carefully controlled empire. We all remember when that super unflattering picture of her in concert popped up online a couple of years ago, leading her to ban all photography at her shows unless it was done by her PERSONAL photographer. However, she’s taken things one step further by even seriously altering her “candid” Instagram selfies, and it’s done so shittily, I seriously have to wonder if it’s a joke.


Sorry, but last I checked, curtains don’t pull themselves in at waist level just to help you out. That’s the Photoshop liquify tool you’re working with, and whoever it is seriously is working with some 101-level skills. But it’s not even about how bad it is – though it is laughably so – it’s about the fact that Bey makes a huge deal out of releasing a song like ‘Pretty Hurts’, all about how superficial the world is and how she’s breaking free from that (easy to say when you’re objectively VERY attractive, thin and rich already) and then goes and does this amateur hour shit.

This isn’t the first time she’s been called out about Photoshopping, either – and she’s certainly not the only one to do it. But for some reason, it just seems like more of a betrayal from Beyonce, who has been rather vocal about embracing herself flaws and all, and encouraging others to do the same. If you feel like you need to digitally squeeze yourself into Barbie proportions, fair enough. Live your life. But don’t pretend like you stand for anything but the same things everyone else does: vanity, to an extreme degree.

Have a look through her Instagram and this shitty Photoshopping is everywhere. Either knock it off, Beyonce, or hire someone who actually knows more than Forward Warp.

Did Beyonce steal ‘XO’ from the ex-boyfriend of her background singer?


People will always want to make money off of celebrities in any way they can. Music is a particularly easy course for the money grubber, because you can claim a famous song is a lot like one you wrote but never released/no one cared about, and that’s what’s happened with Beyonce. Everyone knows the self-titled album gives the Beyhive life, and ‘XO’ is one of the most beloved tracks on the album. Well, apparently she stole that song, according to a new lawsuit.

From TMZ:

A background singer named Ahmad Javon Lane claims he wrote a song called “XOXO” and shared it with another singer who does background vocals for Beyonce.

It’s a short story. He says in his lawsuit the song ended up in Beyonce’s hands and she ripped him off with what he says is a copycat song, “XO.”

He wants at least $3 million.

Alright, here are the songs, compared…

Beyonce’s song:

Yeah, sorry, I don’t think so, bro. Nice try, A+ for effort.

Beyonce is releasing her own fashion line with Topshop


As if Beyonce hadn’t taken over enough of the world already, she’s now teamed up with Topshop in a 50/50 venture that will see her release a line of sports leisure apparel and streetwear probably right in time for Fall ’15.

“This is not a collaboration. This is about building a brand and building a business—a separate, proper business, with separate overhead and a separate office,” Topshop owner Sir Philip Green told WWD. “Basically, when she was in London in February we arranged to get together. We started talking generally, about doing something together. We’ve been looking at that [athletic] sector for a while. It’s something we need to be in. Based on what she does, how she works out, the conversation got into that category. We started getting into proper conversation in May or June, as to how it would work. It took six or eight weeks to put a deal together. On Friday, Beyoncé came to our office for the last piece of the jigsaw puzzle.”

So why did Bey do this? Well, she’s always liked Topshop’s “fashion credentials” and “forward thinking”. Kewl?

There’ll be items including shoes and accessories across sports, dance and fitness and Topshop will sell the items online and in stores. If you can get a hold of a single piece, that is – you know people will shit themselves over this nonsense.

Beyonce finally “proves” she was really pregnant with Blue Ivy

I’ve never been a Beyonce conspiracy theorist when it comes to the issue of whether or not she was actually ever pregnant with Blue Ivy. The stupid “collapsable baby bump” thing seemed like a joke to me, but apparently some people are very, very serious about their feelings on the subject for some reason or other. In any case, Bey knows this, and she used her On The Run HBO special to somewhat set the record straight by sharing the above photo of herself posing naked with Jay-Z during her pregnancy. See? Issue solved… or something.

Now people are saying Bey is the queen of Photoshop (wrong – that’s Kim Kardashian) so this could easily be fake, but is it really that serious, y’all? Why go to such great lengths to make up something so stupid? Here’s Beyonce in the hospital after giving birth, as well:

I get it – people do make up insane shit and this wouldn’t be the weirdest thing someone lied about, but like… really? I dunno, I just don’t see the point. That child is Beyonce and Jay-Z‘s and that’s kinda all that matters. But speaking of Jay-Z, here’s a picture from their wedding, which oddly looks vaguely tacky:

Beyonce “proves” she’s not pregnant by posting bikini pics


Beyonce and Jay-Z are currently on holiday with Blue Ivy over in Italy, while the rest of the world is fixated on whether or not they’re expecting another baby. Jay-Z apparently announced that she was during a concert in France by simply changing a lyric in one of his songs, sending the world into an absolute frenzy (as they probably hoped).

Well, finally Beyonce is “speaking out” against these rumours by posting photos of herself on holiday in a bikini, showing zero sign of a baby bump or anything close to it.


Look, I’m all about Bey celebrating her hotness and all of that, but the stunt queen bullshit has GOT to go. It’s exhausting. If she’s pregnant or not pregnant, whatever, who cares? The point is, don’t purposely try to create hype by suggesting to rabid, crazy ass fans that have already been speculating that she is indeed having a baby, then put up pictures of her in a bikini showing she’s clearly not, etc. Trying to drum up attention at this point is desperate and obnoxious – you’ve already got it, so why carry on like this?

Y’all know I am a Beyonce & Jay-Z fan, but sometimes it’s a hard life to live because they make it so easy to be annoyed by them.

Some guy told Beyonce she can’t sing and her response was excellent


I don’t know who in their right mind (which is, perhaps, the point) would go to a Beyonce concert just to hold up a sign that says she can’t sing, but I guess to each his own. That’s what some weirdo did nearly a year ago, and we’re only now seeing the video of how the incident unfolded now.

I won’t ruin it for you – just sit back and enjoy:

Well, that’s him told. Look, if you really don’t like someone/something, how about just, you know, getting a life and shutting up about it? NO ONE CARES. If you DO like something but you act like you don’t just to create drama/get attention, the advice is the same: get a life. No time for cornballs like this dude.
