Oh, Canada! Beyonce To Be Banned From Country Over Super Bowl Show?

2/13/2016 7:48pm EST
Beyonce Canada Ban: Official Pushes For 'Formation' Singer To Be
The Super Bowl has a way of ruining careers (Just think Janet Jackson's ban).

Reportedly, if one Canadian official gets his way, Beyonce Knowles won't have a stopover in Canada for her upcoming World Tour -- or ever again. What is more, some reports say he is suggesting Queen Bey be investigated and possibly banned if there is evidence of her "support" for the New Black Panthers, according to the Conservative Tribune.

Beyonce, during the Super Bowl 50 halftime show, partnered with Coldplay and Bruno Mars for a lively performance. However, the main buzz of the show was about her dance an...

Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Coldplay Not Paid For Super Bowl 50 Appeara
Could it be true that Bruno Mars, Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Coldplay were not paid for their Super Bowl 50 appearances for the Pepsi Halftime Spectacular?

Yes, as the exposure given to the artists for their time on stage during the big game far outweighs what they could ever be paid for the performance.

As has always been the case, none of the artists that perform at the Super Bowl are ever paid.

According to Forbes, the increase in attention, social media mentions, larger fan bases and music sales are what push the entertainers over the edge more than a paycheck for the evening could.

Divas Beyonce And Sonam Kapoor's Coldplay Video Blasted: 'Stereo
From the looks of it, Coldplay is getting the cold shoulder.

The British group, featuring frontman, Chris Martin, released its music video on Friday. "Hymn for the Weekend" is the second single off the band's A Head Full of Dreams album.

Oddly, even with the assemblage of music and Bollywood -- and two hot divas -- some detractors on Twitter found varying reasons to slam the video. Many commenters upset over Coldplay's video accuse the band, dire...

Beyonce May Be A Tiny Bit Jealous Of This Famous British Singer

1/7/2016 9:16am EST
It was an incredible year for British singer Adele, who landed the top selling album of 2015. But not everyone is thrilled with her success. According to In Touch, Beyonce, who hasn't released an album since 2013, is a bit envious of the competition.

An insider told the magazine (via OK!): "Beyonce wanted to release music in December, but she knew it simply couldn't compare to Adele. She is beyond jealous."

Beyonce and Jay Z have been the victims of divorce rumors for years, and a new report suggests they could be true by revealing they are living in separate areas of their new Beverly Hills mansion.

A member of their staff told Radar Online: "Jay Z and Beyonce each have their own bedrooms. They are on opposite sides of a long hallway with Blue Ivy’s room in between them."

Perhaps one of them has a snoring problem and the other one really needs to sleep? Separate bedrooms don't necessarily mean there's a relationship problem.

Best Albums Since 2000 That Didn’t Win Album Of The Year
Who doesn’t want their achievements honored with an award? Winning an award whether you’re an actor, author, musician, or otherwise is considered an honor – high praise and recognition for the respective art. For a musician, nothing is more prestigious than winning a Grammy, with the most coveted Grammy being for album of the year. Just to be nominated is an honor, but to win the award is much sweeter.

Unfortunately, only a select few have won the Grammy for album of the year – it’s more of a rarity than a surefire thing. Arguably, the 00s and 10s have delivered some oddball choices when i...

Ah, is there anything that’s tastier than candy? While the answer to that question is debatable, few will argue about the power and beauty of the kind of candy that you DON’T eat, but rather view with the eyes. That ladies and gents is “eye candy” which taps into lustfulness, innuendo and unapologetic naughtiness among a variety of other characterizations. Eye candy has been around for years and we, as humans never seem to tire of its power. Its shock value keeps us talking and keeps our eyes glued considering we “can’t get enough.”
