Beyonce Knowles Super Bowl derp and Mr Microphone show in photos

DID you stay up to see Beyonce perform in New Orleans? It was tough going. In the UK, the show was broadcast in the early hours of the morning. To make it harder to stay up that late, the event was squashed between something called the NFL Super Bowl XLVII football game, a contest between the lycra-clad San Francisco 49ers and the shoulder-heavy Baltimore Ravens. Staying awake was testing for any metrosexuals not into 1980s fashions. But if you put in the hard yards, Beyonce was there. You got to see Destiny’s Child reunited – shame the extra ladies lost their voices whenever Beyonce sang ,or their Mr Microphones had failed at the last – and the birth of the Beyonce Derp meme.  How committed to the show was Beyonce? Get a load of the game face. She was all in:

Why Beyonce mimed at Obama’s inauguration

WHY did Beyonce Knowles mime America’s national anthem at President Obama’s second inauguration do? The director of the Marine Corps Band, Colonel Michael Colburn, (aka Press 8 on your telephone keypad) says:

“She’s getting ready for the Super Bowl, so we didn’t have a chance to do anything with her until the night, so it’s a very tight window of opportunity.”

Beyonce Knowles catches Jay-Z head in a door

BEYONCE Knowles spent part of the week showcasing her new nails. Beyonce’s nails feature portraits of herself and husband Jay-Z. Not all fingers are covered with faces, and the thinking is that for the right price you can put your likeness or brand on Beyonce’s nails. A week as Beyonce’s thumb would set you back a cool $1m, while the fourth toe on the left foot – the marketing dead zone – is perfect for online bingo sites and debt management agencies.

Meanwhile, we look out for Beyonce using Jay-Z to picker her nose, illustrating her displeasure at an undertaking truck driver and watching his head hang loose as she catches a nail on a stray diamond…

Beyonce Knowles beats journalism with her vacation diary for Essence

SIGNS that journalism is dying: Beyonce Knowles has won an award for her writing. The New York Association of Black Journalists has given Beyonce a prize for a ‘What I Did on My Holidays’ article she wrote for Essence magazine.

The article, for those of you who missed it, can be read here. The highlights of Beyonce’s award-winning nine-month holiday are:

“…Here Beyoncé shares her journey with ESSENCE readers exclusively.Whenever I work with ESSENCE, it feels like home. The collaboration is always smooth and the concept of the rodeo took me…”

“…I’m drawn to the ocean. Whether it’s jumping from a yacht…”

“…All over Italy the streets smell like gelato…”

“…I was in the middle of performing “Irreplaceable,” and as the audience started singing, “to the left, to the left,” there was a woman sitting on top of a man’s shoulders in her full, traditional burka. Only her eyes and hands were visible. She was waving her hands to the left, to the left, and singing every word — which I could see because the veil around her mouth was moving…”

“…I discovered I love artichokes…”

“…Anyone can plan a staycation, just make the decision to take time for yourself and explore. Eat alone at your favorite restaurant or the one you’ve always wanted to try. Go to a day spa instead of getting the quick mani-pedi. Grab a friend and visit the closest winery. I’m grateful for the time I gave myself to breathe…”

Revealed: Why Blue Ivy Carter was named Blue Ivy Carter

ALL hail Blue Ivy Carter, the child of  Jay-Z and Beyoncé Knowles. What’s in a name? Well, ever since ‘Poison’ Ivy Tilsley (left) bitched her last on Coronation Street, the name has been waiting to make a comeback. And Blue has been a decent name ever since Billy Blue Cannon strode on to the High Chaparral Ranch in the Arizona Territory in 1870s.

But not eveyone agrees that Jay-Z and Beyonce just chose the name Blue Ivy Carter based on their fave TV showws.

The Huffington Post notes:

Linda Rosenkrankrantz, co-founder of Nameberry, adds that there was a jazz singer Ivy (aka Ivie) Anderson who sang with Duke Ellington. Do Beyonce and Jay-Z know her?

“Uncertain. But when I heard the name Blue I did think of Billie Holiday and Lady Sings the Blues,” said Satran.

Funny. when we heard the word blue we think of a colour and skin on a British summer’s day.

Beyonce Knowles’ Freddie And The Dreamers Dance At Glastonbury: Photos

WASN’T Beyonce Knowles just terrify. as she sang and danced at Glastonbury, one of Somerset’s sledding music festivals? She was. Anorak loved the bit where she showed us her Fame Wall – you know, those photos of restaurant owners and staff stood by famous people, like snooker legend John Parrot, Jimmy Savile, and in Beyonce’s case, her husband, Jay Z, and Barack Obama. The other highlight was Beyonce doing The Freddie, the move made famous by Freddie & The Dreamers. It’s always good when a top act does a dance any drunken fool can do at the wedding of work’s Christmas do. Thanks Beyonce. For caring. you knocked us bandy – literally…

Lily Allen’s New Shh Rihanna Tattoo And Mobile Library

LILY Allen has a tattoo on her finger. She is now a walking text message.

Allen’s self-labelling is good for her image, and her marketing. And is a hobby that should be encouraged by Gordon Brown, who can excuse his Government’s quotidian comment on a celebrity by saying how the sight of a young woman encouraging reading is both a fine and a noble thing.

Beyonce Knowles Illustrates The Sixth Rule Of Tabloid Journalism

THE Rules of Tabloid Journalism. Rule 6: The Golden Globes must always be illustrated by picture of a woman’s cleavage.

In more enlightened times the cleavage may belong to a man. For now, though, a woman is all.

The Sun illustrates news of the year’s first film industry AGM with a picture of Beyonce Knowles, who did not win a gong nor even star in a film up for one.
