Ga Ga: Justin Timberlake Dancing Backup For Beyonce On “Saturday Night Live”


Admit it, you love the hot-stepping video for Beyonce’s new song “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)! Maybe you even filmed a remake in your bedroom and posted it online. Which means you probably went crazy for Saturday Night Live‘s parody of the Gwen Verdon and Bob Fosse inspired routine featuring Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg dancing backup for Beyonce, in a body suit and heels no less!

And host Paul Rudd calling Beyonce “B-Town” and “B-K” was also hilarious!

Beyonce on Barack Obama’s Win: ‘I Fell Asleep Crying and Smiling at the Same Time’

In order to watch history be made by President-Elect Barack Obama, singer Beyonce Knowles canceled a promotional tour in Japan for her upcoming album, I Am … Sasha Fierce.

“I said, ‘What am I doing? I’m completely making a bad decision,” she told the AP. “I have to go home, I’m gonna kill myself if I’m not home in America. I knew I needed to be here.”

Knowles, whose sister Solange has a 4-year-old son Daniel Julez, also expressed how Obama’s win affects her young nephew’s future.

“When we say [to Daniel], ‘You can do whatever, you can be whatever,’ it’s not cliche. You have no doubt that it’s not true,” she said. “I fell asleep crying and smiling at the same time. I woke up with mascara running and a smile on my face!”

Beyonce Cast As Legendary Singer-Actress Eartha Kitt

Beyonce Knowles has been cast as the legendary singer Eartha Kitt in a biopic of the entertainer’s life, according to ABC News.

Even though the 79-year-old singer once suggested Academy Award winner Halle Berry portray her on screen saying, “I do not think I have quite the derriere of Beyonce. Give me Halle Berry instead,” in the SFGate.com, she did express approval that the former Destiny Child had taken an interest in starring in her life story.

Kitt is best known for her role as Catwoman in the Batman television series during the 1960s, a distinctive throaty singing voice and her signature purr. She has chronicled her rise from meager beginings in North Carolina to stardom on the stage and screen in her autobiograpies Thursday’s Child (1956), Alone With Me (1976), and I’m Still Here: Confessions of a Sex Kitten (1989).

Knowles, who is already creating Oscar buzz for her portrayal of famed singer Etta James in the upcoming film Cadillac Records, will also star in the thriller Obsessed alongside Idris Elba and Ali Larter next year.

Early Oscar Buzz For Beyonce’s Etta James Portrayal In Cadillac Records

Beyonce’s acting coach Ivana Chubbuck is already starting the Oscar buzz for Beyonce’s performance as Etta James in the upcoming film Cadillac Records.

“I remember after Monster’s Ball thinking, ‘Halle’s going to get an Oscar nomination.’ I feel that way about Beyonce in this film. I think there is going to be some Oscar buzz around her; she’s just that great,” Chubbuck says in the November issue of Essence.

The chart-topper has already won the approval of the legendary singer. “It’s a privilege and an honor to have somebody like that girl,” Etta James told New York Post‘s Page Six. “I don’t think she looks like me, but that’s all right. They can fix that up,”

Cadillac Records (due in December) tells the story of the rise and fall of the Chicago based R&B label Chess Records and also stars Jeffrey Wright as Muddy Waters and Mos Def as Chuck Berry.
