Beyonce And Ali Larter’s Obsessed Catfight Over Idris Elba Tops Weekend Box Office

obsessed_beyonce_idris_elba_ali_larter Beyonce and Ali Larter are proving that everyone loves a catfight, especially when it's over a brother man like Idris Elba, as their Fatal Attaction-esque thriller Obsession tops the box office this weekend. Already surpassing it's modest $20 million budget, Obsessed is quickly redeeming Beyonce from her over-hyped and under-performed role as Etta James in Cadillac Records and securing Idris Elba as a leading man.

Beyonce Tells Tweet Queen Sis Solange: ‘I Don’t Understand Twitter. Just Call Me!’

beyonce-solange-knowles-twitter.jpg Promoting her upcoming tour and new thriller, Obsessed with Idris Elba and Ali Larter, Beyonce sat down with the AP for a Q&A about Etta James and Twitter. Dubbing her Twitterholic sister Solange Knowles "the Twitter Queen", the singer-actress says she's just too old for the new social network. "She told me about the twittering, but I don't get it, I feel like I'm getting really old," Beyonce said of her sister's constant tweets. "I'm like, what? I don't understand. Just call me." In addition to dishing on her tour ("I'll work until my feet are blistered!") and her new movie, where she plays a woman fighting to keep an obsessed woman away from her family ("You have to fight in your relationships!"), Beyonce also commented on Etta James' harsh remarks about her inaugural ball performance of "At Last". "I played Etta James, so I did my research, I read her book," she says diplomatically, "I was not at all surprised. That's Etta. She's hilarious!" PHOTO: Geffen Records

Color On The Cover: Lenny Kravitz Shoots Daughter Zoe, Alicia Keys & Beyonce for Vogue Russia

lenny_kravitz_vogue_russia_cover2 Lenny Kravitz plays photograoher as he points the camera lens on a few high profile celebrities, including his daughter Zoe, for the April issue of Vogue Russia. Kravitz appears on the cover sporting a closely shaven head with arms wrapped around model Carmen Kass and his intimate shots of daughter Zoe Kravitz, singers Alicia Keys, Beyonce, Lionel Richie and rapper Jay-z appear inside. All criticisms aside, like the odd pairing of Kass and Kravitz, their relevancy to anything current, or even the quality of some of Kravitz photos, we still love it! Because everything is just a little bit sexier when Lenny is involved! alicia_keys_beyonce_zoe_vogue_russia

GIMME FIVE: A List of Icons, Legends & Greats According to Kanye West’s Quotes

With the recent news about Chris Brown and Rihanna's domestic abuse drama, Kanye West spoke out in support of his former tour mate. Not only did he call Rihanna "my baby sis," but the Grammy-winning rapper and producer went as far as calling her "the most important artist in music." And while we're on West's loose flattery, Blindie compiled a list of his prior hyperbole relating to his musical peers: Kanye West on Beyoncé in December 2008: "Nobody really wants to recognize that Beyoncé is a f***ing living legend and that she is just as great, if not greater, than the artists that we had in the past…that she’s probably greater than Tina Turner." Kanye West on Justin Timberlake in August 2007: "My biggest inspiration and biggest competition is Justin Timberlake. He's the only other person that gets an across-the-board response and respect level -- black radio, white radio...We push each other. I look at me and Justin like Prince and Michael Jackson in their day." Kanye West on frenemy 50 Cent in January 2009: "50 is one of those rappers that I said was the end all be all of what rap what supposed to be. Like a true iconic rapper." Kanye West on Rihanna in February 2009: "Rihanna is so important to our culture, to pop music. I feel like she is the most important artist in music and has the most potential. Her taste level and her age ... she has the potential to be the greatest artist of all time." Kanye West on Kanye West in November 2008: "I want to be Elvis," he said during an acceptance speech at the American Music Awards. But days later he clarified, "I really should have thought that out more because that statement was actually really incorrect. Actually, the true statement was 'I want to be better than Elvis.'"

Etta James Slams Beyonce For Singing Her Song ‘At Last’ And Calls Obama ‘Big Ears’

Legendary soul singer Etta James ranted about Beyonce having "no business" singing her song during the inauguration at a recent concert in Seattle. The 71 year-old singer didn't seem to like our new President either saying: "You guys know your President right? You know the one with the big ears? Yeah, wait a minute, he ain't ma President. He might be yours...he ain't ma President....but I tell ya' that woman he has singing for him, singing ma song, she gonna get her ass whipped.....the great Beyonce.....but I can't stand Beyonce, she has no business up there singing, singing up there on a...a big ol'...a big ol' President day. Gonna be singing ma song that I been singing forever." Blindie wonders what Ms. James thought of her portrayal by "the great Beyonce" in Cadillac Records.

President Obama Admits He’s ‘Not Like Justin Timberlake’ But He’s Tried Beyonce’s ‘Single Ladies’ Dance

President Obama mingled with hip hop stars Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige and Beyonce at the Lincoln Memorial in D.C. after the "We Are One: The Obama Inaugural Celebration" concert and John Legend caught the hip Prez on his camcorder admitting to Beyonce that he had attempted some of the dance moves from her heavily parodied video of the song "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)." "I'm not like Justin [Timberlake]” President Obama says, referring to the Saturday Night Live spoof. “I didn't put on the outfit. ...[But] I didn't want my girls thinking that I couldn't, you know...I got a lil something." Blindie loves the vogueing hand movements the President does at the end of the video, but maybe AlphaCat could teach him the rest of the moves.
