PIPE DOWN AND GET OVER BEYONCÉ’S NUDITY

Like every year, the fashion at the MET Gala made the whole social media world stop. The evening’s Chinese theme inspired an array of sartorial expressions, from Rihanna’s show-stopping yellow fur cape, to Solange’s out-of-the-box Chinese fan creation. No female guests, however, garnered more attention than Beyoncé, who wore a jeweled, nude Givenchy couture gown. Reactions to the entertainer’s dress varied from “she SHUT DOWN the red carpet!” to “Blah.” Most were more on the affirmative side. But as in most cases, many accused Beyoncé of showing too much skin. Some critics felt the singer was screaming for attention, while… Continue Reading

Gerren Keith Gaynor Guest Talks on ‘Huffington Post Live’

I recently appeared on HuffPost Live on a segment called “Where Did All The Divas Go?” to discuss the decline of the “diva” and whether it has lost its meaning or significance over the years. Check out the video and accompanying article: Aretha. Celine. Whitney. Mariah. The ultimate divas. Miley. Katy. RiRi. Gaga. The … ummm? We hardly blink an eye when Lady Gaga gets puked on, or when Madonna attempts to stay relevant by performing with Miley Cyrus. And how about Rihanna? She’s too busy on Instagram to be belting out her beloved hits. Seriously, what happened to our divas? HuffPost Live… Continue Reading

Is Beyonce’s ‘Sexy’ Image Changing The Perception of Motherhood?

We all can agree that Beyonce is one hot mama. Long before giving birth to her daughter Blue Ivy, the once self-described “bootylicious” singer was often, and still is, touted as the sexiest woman on the planet. Now, as the mother of a two-year-old, Beyonce has easily become not just one of the most beautiful women in the world, but the world’s most sexiest mom. One scroll through the superstar’s Instagram page – or a simple Google search – and you’re likely to find many snapshots of her with her daughter, often dolled up in a pair of short-shorts and high-inch heels, something… Continue Reading

TLC Says Beyonce Thanked Them For ‘The Best Time Of Her Life’

It’s no secret that TLC paved the way for many girl groups, including Destiny’s Child. While many would love to believe there to be a little competitive nature between the two female bands, considering their fan base often pits them against one another, TLC surviving members T-Boz and Chilli revealed that DC’s lead singer, Beyonce, actually paid homage to them. In an interview with The Grio’s Chris Witherspoon, the TLC ladies recalled back in 2011 at the American Idol finale show when Bey approached them backstage to thank them for letting Destiny’s Child open for them in the ’90s for the TLC… Continue Reading

Jay-Z Talks Drug Past, Blue Ivy Being His Biggest Fan and Beyonce In Vanity Fair

Jay-Z graces the November issue of Vanity Fair, and in it he opens up about his drug-selling days in Brooklyn during the 80s, his daughter Blue Ivy listening to his music and his wife, Beyonce, losing her innocence. On Blue liking his music more than Beyonce’s:  “That’s not true. She does like her mother’s music—she watches [Beyoncé’s concerts] on the computer every night. But my album came out and I don’t know if Blue ever heard any of my music prior to this album—she’s only 18 months old and I don’t play my music around the house. But this album… Continue Reading

JAY-Z and Beyonce Top Forbes Highest Earning Celebrity Couple List

As if we needed any more reasons that JAY-Z and Beyonce were the ultimate power couple, Forbes recently announced that the music duo have yet again topped their highest earning celebrity couple list. The Carters reportedly raked in an estimated $95 million from June 2012 to June 2013, with Forbes declaring them “the savviest businesspeople in entertainment.” The couple’s earnings are largely due to Beyonce’s massive Mrs. Carter Show World Tour – which earned an average of $2 million a night – and HOV’s numerous business ventures including part ownership of the Barclays Center (which he later sold) and his… Continue Reading

Beyonce Nearly Pulled Off Stage By Crazed Fan During Concert Performance

It’s fair to say that Beyonce has the craziest fans on this planet. During a performance of “Irreplaceable” in Rio, a crazed fan ran up to the pop star and grabbed her, nearly pulling Bey off of the stage. Luckily, security wasted no time in reprimanding the overzealous fan. Per usual, Bey kept things professional and continued singing the song, while not missing a beat. This isn’t the first time Queen B encountered a fan who didn’t know how to keep his hands to himself. During another show this summer, one fan had the nerve to slap the singer on… Continue Reading

Music Woes: U.S. Album Sales Hit Historic Lows

It’s no secret that for most artists, selling music is an undying hustle. Very few artists, with the exception the Beyonce’s and Rihanna’s, manage to push platinum-selling records anymore. With the digital era making it a lot easier for consumers to pick and choose individual songs to purchase from albums, or worse, download them illegally, the music industry (i.e. the record labels) has greatly suffered over the last decade. But according to a report by Billboard, it’s gotten worse. The last five weeks have marked the longest consecutive stretch that the industry hasn’t sold more than 5 million units in… Continue Reading

Beyonce Releases ‘Detroit Dedication’ From Mrs. Carter Show World Tour

“Nothing Stops Detroit.” Those were the words illuminating on the stage of Beyonce’s Mrs. Carter Show World Tour in Detroit as she performed a heartfelt dedication to the city crippled by financial woes. In response to the Detroit’s recent bankruptcy, Bey sang a stellar rendition of Sam Cooke‘s “A Change Is Gonna Come.” The performance was packaged in a short clip posted on Beyonce’s official YouTube channel. Watch Beyonce’s “A Change Is Gonna Come” below:   It’s always nice to see Beyonce stripped down vocally. Sometimes you forget that she can give such subdued performances. —@MrGerrenalist
