Beyonce as X-Men’s Storm Better Than Halle Berry!

Beyonce jumped into the wet dreams of comic geeks everywhere when she attended Ciara’s birthday party dressed as X-Men’s premiere black character – Storm! The internet and Bey followers are all a dither complimenting Bey Bey on her costume – well, of course they are, we all know what happens when you hate on Beyonce. But seriously, Beyonce’s Storm costume is actually quite good, especially when you compare it to Hollywood’s version of the DC comic heroine – Halle Berry in a bad wig with bangs. Actually, that describes a lot of Halle Berry movies – Monster’s Ball: Halle Berry

Ben Affleck and Jen Garner Divorcing; Will Jay-Z and Beyonce Last Longer?

Just when you thought Ben Affleck and Jen Garner were going to be the celebrity couple to stay the course -after all, they have been married for 10 years, which is like the equivalent of 30 years in Hollywood years, they up and file for divorce. The kicker is that they filed on their 10-year anniversary -OUCH! Someone trying to make a statement? Well, when we heard about Bennifer 2.0 throwing in the towel we were reminded of a piece People.com put together 10 years ago musing about whether the current star couples would stay together: Star Couples: Will It

Kimye, Rihanna, and Beyonce Grammy Red-Carpet Looks Recreated By Kids

New York City-based photographer Tricia Messeroux of Toddlewood Studios has recreated celebrity red-carpet looks of  the 2015 Grammy celebration using kids. The result is, of course, adorable and also better than the original in some ways. We’ve selected our favorites: 1. Rihanna – As soon as we saw Rihanna in that flouncy oversized tutu from Giambattista, we thought she looked like a five-year-old playing dress-up. Looks like we were right. 2. Beyonce – This little girl’s red-carpet smile and presence seems a bit more natural and real than Beyonce’s robotic pose. 3. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian –  This kiddie

The Progress Report: The Cosby Show Reunites, 50 Cent BFFs With Bette Midler, And Beyonce’s Ego

The Cosby Show reunion on the Today Show

cosby_show_reunion

Even though Blindie already covered the reunion of America's most beloved black family, pre-Obama era, there can never be enough said about the Huxtables. Before Barack and Michelle came on the scene, they were our black royalty... despite being fictional. I know we were all supposed to feel all warm and fuzzy seeing the Huxtable clan with Matt Lauer during breakfast, but the whole thing just made me wish that maybe it’s time to stop carrying a torch for The Cosby Show and put some TV shows on the air in THIS CENTURY that feature people of color that are just as progressive. After all, the show debuted 25 years ago! It’s a shame there hasn't been a show to fill the Cosby gap and clearly the networks aren't looking either because they gave us My Wife and Kids, The Bernie Mac Show and Girlfriends. Trust us, nobody will be talking about those shows 25 years from now. If more people watched, we might be talking about The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency. C’mon people! Progress: 100 steps backward. Sadly, boasting about the progressiveness of The Cosby Show for 25 years has reversed all the advancement and social change the show caused in its original eight-year run.

50 Cent and Bette Midler BFFing

1A02B9FA

It's official hip-hop is the safest most family-friendly mainstream music in America. Curtis Jackson, AKA 50 Cent, teamed up with Bette Midler for a second year in a row to help fix a park. What, you were expecting a duet? Maybe Mr. Cent was listening to “Wind Beneath My Wings" when he was recuperating from those 9 gunshot wounds. Hopefully the unlikely besties will collaborate musically! Progress: 97 steps forward.

Beyonce releases new video “Ego”

beyonce_ego

Does Beyonce’s ego prevent her from making another video concept? People like to say that Woody Allen makes the same film over and over again so why does Bey get a pass? I’m not denying her talent (her musical talent), but why are all of her videos essentially rehashes of the same Bob Fosse concept? Boh-ring! Still, watching her dance with two women who aren’t Destiny’s Child always amuses me. Progress: 798 step-ball-changes backward.

Color on the Cover: Beyonce Channels Her Inner Thundercat in June’s Marie Claire

beyonce-marie-claire-june-2009-spread Beyonce has gone all tranny thundercat in the latest issue of Marie Claire, where she's promoting her world tour, but the mag says on the cover, "She'd rather be in bed with Jay-Z!" For some reason, we don't find that appealing--and neither do we find her fierce cat costume (one of 58 over-the-top get-ups designed by Thierry Mugler for the stage) intriguing...Seriously, does one really need to have the panther paws/cheetah spots painted on one's skin?! beyonce-marie-claire-june-2009-cover

19CA708Ashe-hulk2 Word on the comic strip streets is Beyonce may be up for the part of The Incredible Hulk's cousin She-Hulk, even though Megan Fox and Eva Mendes have both been rumored to be considered for the role.

It would be her in a bikini just kicking a lot of ass, throwing cars." Can Beyonce play a green ass-kicking superhero? Well, she played a pissed-off ass-kicking wife. PHOTO CREDIT: Sara Jaye Weiss
