Rihanna has replaced Lady Gaga as the most popular female artist on Facebook, with over 40 million fans that “like “ her on the site, racking up 30,000 more than the Gaga—but it’s Beyonce who has really captured the hearts of fans.
The “Run the World” singer ordered pizzas for her faithful after finding out that some of them had been waiting in line waiting to get into the taping for A Night With Beyonce for UK's ITV network for more than 12 hours. The singer ordered 200 pizzas for those in line, while the venue gave out bottled water to an estimated 500 fans who had lined up. It turns out she’s not the only celeb concerned for fans' welfare.
Harry Potter actor Tom Fenton did the same thing for his minions who lined the streets of New York waiting in the blistering heat for Monday’s premier of The Deathly Hallows: Part 2. We’re not sure how many pies Fenton sprung for, but we do know they had to be much better than the ones Beyonce ordered.
Remember when the only thing a celebrity used to want was their own clothing line? Well, it seems that alcohol has replaced jeans as the measure for success. Toby Keith is the latest star to market his own adult beverage. Despite the fact he penned “Beer For My Horses,” it’s Keith’s new signature mezcal that’s showing up in more and more mojitos this summer.
Kentucky’s 32 Kroger stores have added Toby Keith’s Wild Shot Mezcal to shelves, and it’s the liquor of choice at all Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill restaurants. No surprise there. Except it looks like he’s getting some stiff competition from Carlos Santana who is bringing out his own tequila this month. The guitar great partnered with Casa Noble Tequila and has become both a board member and a stockholder in the company. Casa Noble CEO Jose Hermosillo says, "Santana's love for the spirit of Casa Noble and his commitment to this new partnership is exciting for everyone involved with our brand.”
Do you think he meant to say “spirits”? As for Carlos, he cleared that up, explaining: “We have come together because I love the tequila... I feel at home with my new family at Casa Noble. They strive for excellence and don't take shortcuts. Just like the music of Santana, one note or one drop... they are the same thing.” Try to tell that to the officer next time you get stopped.
Finally, producer-cum-hip-hop-cum-smoother operator Pharrell Williams has cooked up a little something for the ladies - his new “ultra-premium cream liqueur,” called Qream, that’s he made especially for the gentler sex. Speaking to The Boombox, Williams says that everything about this new enterprise has been made to appeal to women, whose “power” he totally respects.
“Qream was created for contemporary women who work hard and want to relax with friends at the end of the day,” he said, adding, “I want them to reward themselves deliciously” by closing their eyes and drinking Pharrell’s Qream." Well, at least we can be comforted that he didn’t exactly call it C*m. Just watch the musician try to wiggle out of that one:
“[The name is] inspired by the fact that it’s a cream liqueur but also the ‘Q’ is for queen. It’s a thinner consistency than other cream liqueurs. If you drink it, you don’t feel chalky and you don’t feel like you gained 10 pounds. You don’t have to drink it and think to yourself, ‘OK, in the morning I’m going to have to sacrifice and do another hour on the treadmill.’ It’s less calories than a glass of wine.”
Qream comes in strawberry cream and peach cream varieties and costs $29.99 per bottle.
Bridge over troubled waters? Unlike Aberdeen, Washington just can’t decide whether to name a bridge after their native son Kurt Cobain, and
will take a vote on renaming what is now called the Young Street Bridge at a
City Council meeting on July 27.
Triumph were honored with the street named after them in their hometown of Mississauga, Ontario. Triumph Lane encircles a recently built development. Ric Emmett, Mike Levine, and Gil More were scheduled to be on hand for the ceremony and to meet fans.
Is it just me or do Bon Iver and the dishy Kathleen Edwards just look like a couple, or are they really a couple? We know that he’s co-producing Kathleen Edwards' upcoming album with Arcade Fire studio whiz Craig Silvey, and has sung duets with her in the past, but it really looks much more friendly than that.
Speaking of couples, Us Magazine got Victoria Secret model Lily Aldridge to finally spill the beans on her nuptials. "Married life is the best. I'm so proud to be a wife,” she told the magazine. The 25-year-old dark-haired beauty, who walked down the aisle in a custom-made Vera Wang gown, also admitted her wedding was perfect and says she wouldn't have changed anything about the sunset ceremony. She added, "It was really an amazing day. It was more beautiful than I could've imagined." It’s not the first time that Aldridge has spoken of her love for the Kings of Leon frontman: "Caleb is the man of my dreams. And you can quote me on that." We just did.
We're sorry we can't say the same about Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. After weeks of rumors and seven years of marriage Marc Anthony, 42, and Jennifer Lopez, 41, are getting a divorce, People reports.

According to the sainted Janet Charlton, the Queen of Soul

Detroit home says she needs an intervention! Aretha is a hoarder!
can’t throw ANYTHING out! When you walk in there’s a little path cleared in the
hallway that you can barely get through. Stuff is piled everywhere. Fans send
her letters and photos and gifts and she can’t part with any of it. Tables are
covered with tchotchkes and stacked with letters and magazines and papers and
dishes. Every once in awhile you can see a Grammy poking out of the chaos. She
even has stuff piled on the stairs and rarely goes up to the second floor.” The
source added, “In spite of the clutter, she’s a very sweet and gracious hostess
to all visitors. She may be a diva in the studio, but she’s a sweetheart at
I bet she orders pizzas for her fans, too.
