I don’t typically like writing about Kim Kardashian (I leave that to the other Homorazzi cast), but I just had to share this one. It features Beyonce going a little cray cray upon hearing about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s pregnancy. As you would expect, she’s not looking forward to Kimye’s offspring potentially outshining her precious Blue Ivy. Remember when she tried to get her kid’s name trademarked? LOL.
Obviously, it’s not Bey herself but someone pretending to be her. I probably should say embodying her instead of pretending. Girlfriend does a spectacular job of mimicking her talking voice and singing inflections. Love the shout out to sister Solange Knowles while holding a bag of Cheetos. Check out the clip below.
Before I begin, I just wanted to preface this post by saying it’s bit self-indulgent. That said, the aim of our Behind The Cast posts are to give you a better insight to who we are. True? Anyhoo, I just wanted to quickly chat about one of our favorite pastimes while getting ready for a night out on the town.
Usually, Brian and my home is the meeting place before we head out. Most of our friends live nearby and we have a bigger place so it makes sense. Plus we have all the board games, karaoke, a hot tub, booze and most importantly an Apple TV. Combined with the brilliant VEVO app, the Apple TV is my favorite thing in the world. Friends come over all the time and play me their favorite new tracks by simply logging on to our Wi-Fi and playing it on our sound system. With the VEVO app, we can play all our current music video obsessions and our favorite oldies which brings me to this post.
Nothing gets a roomful of homos screaming more than playing music videos from our favorite DIVAS. Yes, we’re a gay cliche. However, we also listen to folk music, old school grunge, rock and hip-hop but there’s something about the ladies that gets us all fired up. I decided to share some of the music videos that seem to get the most airplay at our house while enjoying cocktails. I purposefully left out clips from 2012 since that would make this post extremely long. Without further delay, check out a few oldies and relatively-recent clips we love watching while a tad intoxicated.
A week after the Sandy Hook shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, two videos from very opposing camps hit the internet. First you have celebrities asking in a PSA, “How many more colleges? How many more classrooms? How many more movie theaters? How many more house of faith? How many more shopping malls? How many more street corners?” Demand A Plan is a grassroots initiative to mobilize Americans to DEMAND a plan to end gun violence from Congress and President Obama. Reese Witherspoon, Beyonce, Michelle Williams, Selena Gomez, John Hamm, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson and many, many more lend their voices to the PSA.
Coincidentally on the same day, National Rifle Association president Wayne LaPierre, held a live press conference. LaPierre claims the media is to blame for the shootings and not guns. He explains that the entertainment industry makes “the filthiest form of pornography,” citing violent music videos and films Natural Born Killers and American Psycho. He further goes on to say that “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” His most controversial comment that has celebrities on Twitter in a tizzy is his claim that had armed guards been at Sandy Hook, innocent lives would’ve been spared that day. Check out both vids below.
Wowza! One already very well-off celebrity has just signed a $50-million multi-year deal with Pepsi as a brand ambassador, which includes commercials, a fund to support creative endeavors, and limited edition cans with their picture on it (I’ve included a picture of these cans below).
The endorsement will roll out in February, which will coincide with the release of the artist’s new album, a documentary, as well as their Pepsi-sponsored Super Bowl performance in New Orleans on February 3. Any guesses yet?
Following the announcement, the artist said in a statement, “Pepsi embraces creativity and understands that artists evolve…this allows me to work with a lifestyle brand with no compromise and without sacrificing my creativity.” Find out
HBO just gave Beyoncé fans a first look at her autobiographical commentary premiering on February 16, 2013. The teaser begins with Bey saying, “I always battle with how much I reveal about myself.” Given that she’s not only starring in the documentary but also directing and producing it, she has complete creative control. So any oversharing that occurs is on her hands ;)
HBO has a history of pushing every boundary with class and authenticity… Some of my favorite shows are on HBO, so I am excited that my film will be part of its bold programming. This film was so personal to me, it had to have the right home.” – Beyoncé
Just how “Raw“, “Real” and “Revealed” will the HBO special be? There’s a moment in the clip where B shows off her tummy, which seems to address the rumors that she wasn’t actually pregnant and hired a surrogate. Hopefully, in the show a wider shot of a pregnant Beyoncé is shown. Based on what’s revealed in the teaser, that could be anyone’s tummy or bloated stomach for that matter, since it never shows her face.
In addition to baby-gate, the documentary will feature footage from concert performances, childhood home videos and video chats. Check out the 25-second teaser below.
From the creators of Ice Age and Rio comes a new 3D CG action-adventure comedy called Epic that reveals a hidden world unlike any other.
Epic tells the story of an ongoing battle deep in the forest between the forces of good and the forces of evil. When a teenage girl (Amanda Seyfried) finds herself magically transported into this secret universe, she must band together with a rag-tag team of fun and whimsical characters (ie. Aziz Ansari from Parks & Recreation as a slug) in order to save their world… and ours.
The animated features is jam-packed with the voices of many other well known actors & musicians including Josh Hutcherson, Beyoncé Knowles, Colin Farrell, Johnny Knoxville, Pitbull, Jason Sudeikis, Steven Tyler, Blake Anderson, and Judah Friedlander. The music playing in the background really compliments all of the animated action that is going on and makes the trailer more or less live up to the title of the movie. It looks like a really cute, well-made film! Check out the first trailer below.
Beyoncé or Rihanna as a Bond Girl? You never know. If Denise Richards can land a role as one of 007′s sexual conquests, why can’t either of these gorgeous ladies? Who better to resolve this dilemma then James Bond himself, Daniel Craig. During one of his many interviews promoting Skyfall, the 44-year-old actor sat down with Global Grind and answered this all-important question.
It’s true what they say about men being from Mars and women hailing from Venus. When asked the same question, Skyfall’s Bond Girls, Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe, both choose Beyoncé, while Craig opted for the “Diamonds” singer. His reason for choosing Rihanna over Bey even shocked his co-stars. Find out what it is below. Feel free to fast-forward the clip until the tail end of the interview to learn his answer.
Beyonce made her first appearance at the Super Bowl back in 2004. Then, she sang the national anthem before the New England Patriots defeated the Carolina Panthers at Super Bowl XXXVIII. Nine years later, the 31-year-old singer will return to the annual sporting event, but this time she’s the headliner. Talk about an upgrade. I wonder if the time commitment needed to prep for the halftime show is the reason why she dropped out of the A Star Is Born remake.
An anonymous source reported to the Associated Press early Tuesday morning that Beyonce had been tapped to perform on the halftime show at Super Bowl XLVII. Bey confirmed the rumors later that day by revealing the above picture with the 2013 Super Bowl date on her face via her website with the caption, “Countdown to Touchdown“. Super Bowl XLVII will be held on February 3, 2013 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. It’ll be the first time the city has hosted the sporting event since 2002.
