Beauty: Beyonce Turns Up the Heat

December 18, 2009

Beyoncé is hot and she’s about to get even hotter. Women’s Wear Daily reports the pop star is introducing her new fragrance Heat. Inspired her fans, Beyoncé wanted to create a fragrance that they could enjoy. The name Heat is derived from her previous tours where fire was a featured element. The red and gold bottle came about because they are two of her favorite colors; the antique shaped bottle is an ode to her love of vintage fashion.

The fragrance tops off with red vanilla orchid, magnolia, neroli and blush peach; at the heart is honeysuckle nectar, almond macaroon and crème de musk, and a bit of sequoia milkwood, amber and tonka bean.

The Heat fragrance collection includes three eau de parfum sizes: 1 oz. for $39; 1.7 oz. for $49, and 3.4 oz. for $59 and a 6.8-oz. Gold Sparkling Body Lotion for $24. The fragrance will hit stores as early as February, with worldwide distribution complete by August.

CFB Photos: Beyonce at the MTV Europe Awards

CFB Gossip: Beyoncé About to Be a Big Sister…Again

October 5, 2009

Beyoncé Knowles may be welcoming a new sibling. Reports surface this weekend that her father-manager Matthew, is expecting a baby with a Los Angeles woman by the name of Alexsandra Wright. The brand manager alleges that Papa Knowles is the father of the baby she is due to have in about three months.

This is extremely interesting since Matthew and Tina Knowles are still married. My, my, my what a tangled web we weave. And what a shame it is that Matthew Knowles is having a kid before his son-in-law Jay-Z. Maybe Jay-Z needs another blueprint. 

On a lighter note Beyonc

é did receive Billboard’s Woman of the Year Award. Too bad the news of Papa Knowles being a rolling stone stole some of her shine.

Chocolate Gossip: A Destiny’s Child Reunion in the Works?

Will there be a Destiny’s Child reunion? Was the question posed to former group member Kelly Rowland who was sitting at the Dsquared show during Fashion Week Milan. “I heard that rumor too,” she was heard saying.

While the notion of a Destiny’s Child reunion might sound good on paper, the fact of the matter is, it may not work. The scene-stealing Beyoncé has been a constant figure since her break away from the group in 2003.While it is widely known that Kelly is a better vocalist, she hasn’t had a chance to prove it.

If Kelly and the soft-spoken Michelle Williams can get more vocal time, a reunion might not be a bad idea. It’s just too bad  they’ll have to get past papa Matthew Knowles to do it.We know how this story ends but we wish all the girls the best.

Fashion & Style News: Beyoncé Fragrance Not So Fierce

September 17, 2009

Beyoncé Knowles may have to put her fragrance dreams on hold. The pop diva was set to release her own fragrance in the spring (See: Beyoncé to Launch Fragrance in the Spring), which some speculated might be called, Sasha Fierce. According to Women’s Wear Daily, teen retailer Abercrombie & Fitch says the pop star infringe on its Fierce fragrance trademark.

However, a representative for Coty, Inc., the company who will distribute Knowles’ fragrance confirms that at this time Sasha Fierce nor Fierce are not being used in the naming of Beyoncé’s fragrance. (Quite frankly if I were Beyoncé, I would call the fragrance B.) 

Knowles filed an application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in September of 2008 for the Sasha Fierce moniker in the fragrance category. Abercrombie & Fitch has asked Knowles to cease and desist after discovering the finding, citing that consumers might be confused if there is a Sasha Fierce fragrance.

By the way, Isn’t Abecrombie & Fitch the same company that fired a teen for having a prosthetic arm? Hmmm…Maybe they should be renamed Abercrombie &….You know the rest. We’ll see how this plays out. The company has filed an injunction to prevent Beyoncé’s use of the Fierce name for a fragrance.

Entertainment: Blame it on the Alcohol – Kanye West Puts His Foot in His Mouth

September 16, 2009

Kanye West has finally put his foot in his mouth–again. The rapper-producer made a complete spectacle of himself on Sunday night, storming the stage and taking the microphone from the young pop star Taylor Swift. Arriving at the MTV Video Music Awards with his latest 15-minute fame seeking girl-toy Amber Rose and a bottle of Hennessey, West seemed to already be on level 10.

Once the show was underway and the winner was announced for Best Female Video, Taylor Swift took to the stage. Midway through her emotion-filled acceptance speech, Kanye ran on stage and took the microphone out of Swift’s hand and proceeded to remark how, “Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time.” The mortified Swift was left speechless as West threw his hands up and left the stage.

The crowd booed Kanye West, and Taylor Swift quite frankly, could not recover. Taylor wasn’t the only one who was stunned. MTV cameras caught Beyoncé mouthing an, “Ohmigod,” in shock. When Knowles went on stage to accept her award for Video of the Year, she asked Swift to join her. Swift who matched Beyoncé who was also wearing scarlet red returned to the stage and said, “Let’s try this again.”

West appeared on the first airing of The Jay Leno Show to apologize, but the damage was already done. The attention-seeking, confused star seemed to be suffering from a case of idiotitis when Leno asked, “What you your mother have said to you if she were here?” (West’s mother died from complications after having plastic surgery in 2007. West had no real answer, but perhaps the backlash from his mistake will prompt him to consider his words before he opens his mouth again.

It seems that men these days are exuding more bitchiness than their female counterparts and that my friend, is NOT a good thing. Our we really surprised by Kanye’s actions? Probably not. He’s always been a problem within himself.

I neglected to even post this story because it was simply not newsworthy in my opinion. It just proves to me and thousands of others what the lack of a strong male role model coupled with fame and a huge ego can do.
