Poor Solange, she tried to stay in her own lane and do her own thing and now here comes Beyonce to steal her glory! Of course you all know that Solange does Indie music, right. Well, Beyonce has announced that she also wants to do Indie on her next album!
The copycat said during an interview that she would like to collaborate with unsigned artists for her next year release. She said the idea was inspired by her sister/singer Solange Knowles.
"There's so many people I'd like to work with still, but I'd like to maybe go outside of the box," Beyonce told The Observer. "My sister [Solange] has put me on to bands like [indie group] Of Montreal and some other different types of artists. I would love to do something like that on my next album."
Beyonce Knowles announced her plan to release a fourth solo studio album during her last U.K. stop of "I Am..." tour in Nottingham earlier this month. "This is my last show for this tour in the U.K., so hopefully, I'll see you all in a year with a new album," so she said at that time.
Thats a daym shame! THE NERVE!!!! I bet Solange will sit back and say nothing, what an idiot!

The Duchess of Cornwall spoke for the first time yesterday, about the way youngsters are sexualised by explicit rap videos. Camilla was taking part in a discussion with victims of sexual violence during a visit to a rape crisis center when the topic turned to how music videos affect teenagers today. She told an audience of women that children thought they could get away with things because teachers failed to punish them.
Referring to the images children are exposed to, the Duchess said: ‘A lot of those videos are terrifying. ‘I am sure they trigger a response in some of the young people. I can never understand how they can get away with making those things.’ The Duchess has avoided speaking in public on social issues until now. Her stance has been in marked contrast to Charles’ first wife, Diana, Princess of Wales, who was renowned for the way in which she tackled controversial issues.
Yesterday, the Duchess made her concerns clear that youngsters are already becoming immune to such images of sex and violence. She said schools need to become involved in teaching both male and female schoolchildren ‘the value of respect for each other.’ During the discussions, the subject turned to a controversial video by pop singer Beyonce, who is particularly popular with young girls.
In the promotion for the single Video Phone, which also features the outlandish singer Lady Gaga, Beyonce provocatively dances in a series of increasingly skimpy outfits and holds a toy gun to the head of a bare-chested man who is hooded.
‘It has happened too quickly, values have changed so much,’ the Duchess said. ‘I suppose it’s peer pressure, that’s the problem. You don’t want to look like the odd one out.”
But it takes a strong person to show that they don’t approve, especially at that age. It’s a breakdown of discipline. There doesn’t seem to be any punishment for such behavior. The teachers are too kind.’

"I'm thankful for my life, I'm thankful for my health and my family and for music and for having the best job in the world," she said.
In a performance made during her I Am... Tour, this summer at the Encore Theater at Wynn, Las Vegas, Knowles shares the inspiration behind many of her hits.
"People don't know that these songs meant more than just the songs that are catchy," she said. "It's my life."
Beyonce said the hit "Dangerously in Love," off her debut solo album, was when she fell for her husband, hip hop mogul Jay-Z.
"A lot of the people in the audience would know 'Crazy in Love,' but would not particularly know this is when I met my first love ... my husband," Beyonce said. "There's an actual story behind all of my songs and why I wrote the songs and I wanted to show that."
For her Las Vegas performance, the R&B singer-songwriter put together an entirely new show.
"I've always wanted to perform in Las Vegas, I've always wanted to do my own show there, because a lot of the icons that I look up to had amazing shows in Las Vegas," she said. "I thought if I'm going to have my own Las Vegas show, it has to be right and it has to have heart and soul and it has to be something memorable."
"My whole objective here is for people to see what they don't get to see. Just give me my band, give me a stage, some cool smoke and lights and you see the sweat, you see the pain, you see the love, you see the soul and it's about music," she said.
The seven-time Grammy award-winning singer juggled the music, new choreography, lighting and direction. Beyonce said she pushes herself to perfection.
"When I work, I don't eat. I don't use the restroom...," she said. "And I think my team is just as crazy as I am because they are right there with me pushing it and pushing themselves."
From her on-screen role as Foxxy Cleopatra in "Austin Powers," to her new hit "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)," the talented performer has become a symbol of female empowerment.
"I always will believe in the strength we have as women," Beyonce said. "And there are certain things you should not put up with and you have the choice to set the standards.
"I know a lot of young women listen to my music when they need encouragement," she said. "There's nothing better than someone coming up to me and saying, 'I knew I had to get rid of that guy,' and 'I listened to that song and I knew that I was better than that and it gave me the strength to move on to the next chapter of my life.'"
Surrounding herself on-stage and off with strong women of all shapes and sizes, Beyonce's band is an all-female ensemble.
"It was a couple years ago," she said, "I had this idea to have a female band. We had auditions in New York, Chicago, Houston and L.A. And people flew from all over the world. ... I wanted young people to feel like there's somebody on the stage that they can identify with. They are all different shapes, different sizes, different races. And they play better than the guys. It just makes me really, really proud."
"A lot of us didn't know each other when we made the band three years ago," said band member Divinity Roxx, who plays bass. "I have grown as a musician in these past three years. I have grown as a person."
"You have to grow because as she gets better, we have to get better. It's like, everybody has to step their game up," said drummer Nikki Glaspie.
Beyonce has grown from a talented 9-year-old to the lead singer in the girl group Destiny's Child into a pop icon, at the helm of a thriving business empire. She's been ranked as one of the world's most powerful celebrities by Forbes, reportedly earning an estimated $87 million in 2009.
"There would definitely not be a Beyonce without Destiny's Child. I love my girls," she said.
From "Star Search" to Forbes Celebrity 100, Beyonce has continued to come out on top.
"I don't like to gamble, but if there is one thing I'm willing to bet on is myself," she said.
ABC's special television event begins on Thanksgiving night, Nov. 26, at 9 p.m. ET with "Beyonce: I Am... Yours." "Paul McCartney: Good Evening New York City" airs at 10 p.m. ET.

They say he dodged the cameras and repeatedly asked to not have pics taken of him. Maybe theres some insecurity to blame for that strange request.
According to the New York Post, the rapper told the lingerie brand that he did not want to pose with their models nor walk the red carpet with them.
According to AOL.com, he was also given a booth at the after party in New York so he could "keep his distance from models including Alessandria Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr and Heidi Klum.”
Hmm...sounds like somebodys catering to an insecure chica to me. What do you think?

11/20/09 Beyonce went to Katsuya and had a quiet dinner with her husband whose always wearing black, Jay-Z. Beyonce is looking rather old, huh? Drake and Jeezy also was in attendance. Beyonce is looking like a deer caught in the headlights with her same ole weave. Somebody get her a stylist!
Get ready for a Bey overload, as she ended her show lastnight at the Trent FM Arena she told the crowd (at the 1:00 mark) that shes putting out a new album next year....how dreadful!

Here is another image of Jay-Z trying to remain incognito and down low with the lady I mentioned in my previous post. To be fair, her name is Rita Ora and shes signed to Roc Nation, Jay-Zs record label.... but my question is, why do they meet at night and go on dates with one another. Is Jay-Z cheating on Bey? Only time will tell. I will keep you guys posted.
Beyonce was in Edmonton lastnight and she has added a new piece to her tired azz world tour. Since her songs can't serenade the crowd due to their low IQ lyrics, shes picked up an old song and added it to her act. Its by the great Anita Baker, a 90's R&B singer. In the beginning, she belts out horrendous tunes, so if you want to skip the screaming part, go to the :28 second mark to hear her damage the song completely.

Lastnight, Diddy had his 40th birthday party and Jay-Z showed up. Here he is talking to Steve Stout....but what else do you see. Did you notice that he is without his ring and sitting next to a Beyonce look-a-like. Jay-Z goes after the long weave, light skin type of woman. He looking sorta sad and lonely in the pic as well. Jay and Beys relationship appears to be a cat and mouse game they play using the tabloids to piss each other off. I can see this marriage being dissolved by 2012.

In an interview recently, Mr Shawn Carter said that he’s ready to start having babies with Beyonce and that ‘procreating’ is high on their agenda right now, Beyonce however, is not on the same page as Jay-Z. Heres what she said to the press overseas only a day after JayZ leaked his hopes of having babies:
It’s not time for that yet,” she said. “But definitely there will be a time. I want to be a great mother, the kind of mother that I have. I want the same bond that I had with my mom and that would be enough for me.
“The security and love I feel being in a relationship, a marriage, it’s absolutely incredible. Incredible.”
This girl is a mess.... I take the statement of her not having kids as a direct blow to Jay-Z as if to say 'if you dont get your azz over here with me, I wont have your kids. And that last statement about the security of her relationship and marriage almost as a threat to Jay-Z. Theres a dash of sarcasm in there if you read between the lines. Maybe thats why he canceled his tour to go and be with her. I smell some tension in the marriage!
So I love the blog by Sandra Rose, shes so fair and balanced when it comes to these celebrities. I got these pics from her blog of Beyonces smeared lipstick. Doesn't it look a hot mess. What was she doing...eating, drinking, slobbing knobs? Who knows?

According to MTV, Jay Z has canceled the remaining stops on his much-hyped BP3 tour due to unforeseen circumstances that have developed. The article didn’t mention the reason, but we already know why.
In addition to dealing with his wife Beyonce’s rumored alcoholism, it seems Jay now has to keep tabs on a steamy relationship between Beyonce and her man servant, boy toy bodyguard Julius.
Ever since pics leaked online of Julius and Bey sneaking out of a Berlin hotel with her lipstick smeared on Julius’s lips, Jay Z has not left his wife’s side, accompanying her on trips to London while he’s in the midst of a concert tour. Now Jay Z cancels his tour.
Is this all speculation or is it way too much of a coincidence? If the rumors are true, it’s kind of sad that their marriage had to end this way.

This video is an utter nightmare. What distinguishes Beyonce from the typical video hoes seen in rappers videos. Is it because shes a singer? I think this video was done in poor taste and shes certainly somewhere probably feeling ashamed of herself after reading the negative feedback this video has put on her image. I am grossed OUT..but go on and view
This time, its real folks. I am back! I am sorry it took me so long to return. I was busy with personal life but now everything is on track and we are ready to tear into this Beyonce/Sasha Fierce character with all we have! Thank you so much for your support, its on and POPPING!!!
