Last night, Oprah Winfrey was here in Vancouver for a special evening called “An Evening With Oprah” and we were there! I was there with Tyrell, and cast member Dan was there as well. She inspired and empowered the audience of 16,000 by sharing her life story and the lessons she has learned along the way that got her to where she is now. She also made us laugh a lot, especially towards the end in her one-on-one question and answer with George Stroumboulopoulos.

The evening started out with an introduction by Richard Dolan, the president of Rein Canada. He got the audience prepped for the next presenter, who was none other than Jim Pattison. Who Pattison introduced next was a surprise to everyone, even to Oprah. It was Stedman Graham, the love of Oprah’s life. He came to the show through an invitation from his friend Jim and decided to surprise Oprah. He spoke of how everyone knows Oprah one way, and then revealed how he sees her before introducing her to the stage.

Before I get to some of the main things I got out of the evening, I want to share some of the things Oprah said about some of the current news making headlines (ie. Lance Armstrong, Beyonce Lip-Syncing, and more).

Just in case you didn’t know what “ratchet” means, here are a few definitions from Urban Dictionary. My personal favorite is the last one ;)

A diva, mostly from urban cities and ghettos, that has reason to believe she is every mans eye candy. Unfortunately, she’s wrong.

OR

A ghetto girl who is loud and obnoxious and constantly causing drama and usually trashy.

OR

Ratchet is If Ghetto and Hot Shitty Mess had a baby, and that baby had no father, and became a stripper, then made a sex tape with an athlete, then became a reality star!

Looks like the rumored collaboration between Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Rihanna and Azealia Banks is becoming a reality. Banks was the first to start the rumor mill. She revealed she worked with the “Bad Romance” singer on a song called “Red Flame” which was later renamed to “Ratchet.” Then when both Gaga and Beyonce posted self-portraits sporting “ratchet” earrings, the internet really went crazy. Not sure how Rihanna got in the mix, but somehow she’s been included whenever the collaboration has been mentioned.

If this actually comes to fruition, this 2013 quartet could be the modern-day version of the “Lady Marmalade” collabo between Christina Aguilera, Lil ‘Kim, Pink and Mya back in 2001 for the musical Moulin Rouge. Not sure if they can reach the heights of what those four ladies did back then, but they certainly match their star wattage. Check out a very short snippet of “Ratchet” below which was produced by frequent Gaga partner DJ White Shadow.

Today, President Barack Obama was sworn into office for his second term at the White House becoming the 44th US president. He was sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts. His speech was about 18 minutes long and Obama really emphasized, “Our journey is not complete.”

In his speech, he explained, “This generation of Americans has been tested by crises that steeled our resolve and proved our resilience. A decade of war is now ending. An economic recovery has begun. America’s possibilities are limitless.” He added, “My fellow Americans, we are made for this moment, and we will seize it – so long as we seize it together.”

Kelly Clarkson sang “My Country Tis of Thee,” while Beyonce sang the National Anthem. Both powerhouse singers did a great job. In case you missed the speech or the performances, you can check them out below.

With Destiny’s Child, it’s a running joke about how Beyonce was in charge and when any of the other girls had solos or were featured in any way, it was like Beyonce let them. Given that she was the last to join the group and the one who has had the least mainstream success since the split, it’s way more applicable to Michelle Williams than it is for Kelly Rowland. I remember when Michelle had a line in “Survivor” and how crazy it was that she had a solo. LOL.

Recently, a blog called Poor Michelle has surfaced that is a compilation of all the times Michelle Williams got the short end of the Destiny’s Child stick. “The girl just can’t catch a break,” ‘Poor Michelle’ says. I’m thinking the site must have been inspired by their reunion and new(ish) album, but I can’t say for sure. I will say that one of the “Poor Michelle” quotes even makes reference to the fact that she’s the only one of the three that got half of her face chopped off of their new album cover…poor Michelle indeed!

Of course the captions go along with pictures, but to give you an idea of what some of the captions say, here are a few that had me laughing out loud:

  • “The time she stuck her leg up on the railing because Beyonce told her it was cool…”
  • “The time they made Michelle lie upside down in a photo…” (as shown above)
  • “The time Tina made her cover her legs…”

Seriously, I hope who ever is doing these will keep it up for a while because they are seriously so funny. Clink below for the link to the blog as well as for a few of the photos & captions to first wet your appetite. I’ve also included a funny video that definitely fits in with this conversation as well.

A while back, the first teaser video for Beyonce‘s self-directed HBO Documentary Special called “Life Is But A Dream” was released. Now the full trailer is out and we’ve got your first look below.

In the trailer, we see the struggles she went through with her pregnancy and even when she just figured out she was pregnant. “I just had a feeling that something was going on. Really, this is crazy,” Beyonce says into the camera before it cuts to her sonogram. In a voiceover, she later says, “They keep putting me in these tight clothes, and trying to hide this. It’s very difficult. I don’t know how I’m going to get through this.”

She also talks about her internal struggle with living in the public eye and how much of her personal life does she share. “People see celebrities, and they have money and fame. But I’m a human being. I cry, I get scared, I get nervous just like everyone else.” The special airs on February 16. Check out the trailer below!

Rumor has it a Destiny’s Child reunion will take place at this year’s Super Bowl half-time show. It only makes sense given that the girl group recently announced the release of a new album, Destiny’s Child – Love Songs. The 14-track compilation will include romantic gems from their career between 1997-2004 and one never released track.

Nuclear” is the first song released since the group broke up in 2005. Produced by Pharrell Williams, the track was co-written by Michelle Williams and features vocal production by Beyoncé and Lonny Bereal. While I adore the group and appreciate new music from them, the track isn’t exactly explosive. It sounds a little dated which makes sense given it was probably written years ago. But hey, that’s just my opinion. Take a quick listen to “Nuclear” below and post your thoughts.

2012 was relatively quiet for Beyonce. For others it would’ve been a busy year. After spending most of the year tending to her baby Blue Ivy, the 31-year-old singer is coming back with a vengeance. Prep yourself for a Beyonce onslaught.

Just in the next couple months, Bey will be debuting her HBO documentary, headlining the half-time show at the 47th annual Superbowl, releasing a brand new single and performing at President Obama’s inauguration. Can you imagine what she has in store for us for the rest of the year?

If that wasn’t enough, Mrs. Jay-Z is showing some under-boobage for the February 2013 GQ issue. The “Halo” singer was photographed by Terry Richardson in a very short cropped football jersey and animal-print panties. The publication choose to feature the Dreamgirls actress as part of their 100 Sexiest Women of the 21st Century editorial.

Destiny’s Child, which as you know is made up of Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams, are releasing their first new album in eight years in a couple weeks. Pre-sales for the album have started today on Amazon!

The album is called Destiny’s Child Love Songs and is described as follows: “Like the proverbial hand and glove, power ballads and Destiny’s Child were made for each other. And the proof appears on Love Songs. The 14-song collection draws from the group’s 10-year, top selling reign. Tender, soulful vocals by frequent lead singer Beyonce. Sparkling harmonies laced against sumptuous melodies, simultaneously breathing life into story-telling-lyrics covering the gamut of female emotions. Those are the Destiny’s Child trademarks coursing throughout this compilation. At the end of the day, you can’t hide behind a ballad. It’s all front and center. Either you have it. or you don’t. And Destiny’s Child definitely have it. So relax and listen to one of the world’s most talented girl groups do its love thing.”

The album officially comes out on January 22. Read what had been said this fall in an interview their former manager, Matthew Knowles below. I’ve also included the 14-song track list as well.
