Angry photographers have a bone to pick with Queen Bey, and we aren't referring to slighted paparazzi!!
Beyoncé recently denied all photographers press passes for the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour because she doesn't want them taking pics of her at the concerts.
The singer's public relations team instead insists that press use pre-authorized pics of the her in their publications!
Of course, journalists are protective of their First Amendment rights so now they're pissed off!
The National Press Photographer's Association, backed by heavyweight papers like the L.A. Times the New York Daily News, wrote an angry letter to the masterful musician's PR team saying as much!
They believe Bey is only hurting her image by
The BET Awards are going high class this year.
Between Rihanna's Diamonds and Justin Timberlake's Suit & Tie, it sounds like host Chris Tucker is really going to be putting on the ritz!
Naturally, Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, and Kendrick Lamar were also up for awards for their work this year, while Chris Brown, who was on hand at the announcement ceremony, is once again up for Best Male R&B Artist.
Drake should get the honorary team player award- he's featured on FOUR of the noms for Best Collaboration!
You can see the full list of nominees in all categories …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Now THIS is what we call a party.
We guess it’s fitting that a movie about an extravagant party host would hold pretty much the ULTIMATE premiere party!
The Great Gatsby features an A-list cast, A-list soundtrack, and A-list EVERYTHING. So of course they decided to have the most A-list party EVER to celebrate!!
If we listed every single celeb that showed up, that would take all day. But here are a few: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Baz Luhrmann, Jay-Z, Carey Mulligan, Jamie Foxx, Amanda Seyfried, Jake Gyllenhaal, Lil Jon, Florence Welch, etc, etc, etc!!!!!
Ermahgerdddddd that’s so many seksi celebs we’re about to pass out.
A guest felt the same way we do, saying:
Who would’ve ever thought Carey Mulligan would be acting in a movie with a soundtrack by Jay-Z?!
Certainly not Carey!
And now that The Great Gatsby premiere is days away, Carey is all in a tizzy about possibly meeting Jay-Z at the event.
We're more concerned about whether or not Beyoncé will be there!
Even though Carey’s a well-respected actress with plenty of experience working with MAJOR stars, there’s just something about Hova that has her straight up speechless!
But don’t worry too much, cutie Carey sort of has a plan and it even involves a
slightly totally awkward ending!
Ch-ch-check it out …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Since her humiliating, side-butt revealing dress experience, Gwyneth Paltrow seems to be adding to her points on the embarrassment scale.
Having stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier today, Gwynnie admitted that she and hubby Chris Martin regularly impersonate famous singers. Of course, Ellen wouldn’t be Ellen if she didn’t ask the actress to show the audience her skillz in the art of musical impressions.
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) and see Gwyneth take on Jay-Z, Beyonce, Kanye West, and her “male counterpart!”
It’s equally HIGHlarious and AH-MAZING!
Beyoncé & Andre 3000! Lana Del Rey! Jay-Z & Kanye West!
And now The xx!!!
Holy guacamole, The Great Gatsby is pushing out one of the most epic soundtracks EVER!
This fab new track is haunting, melodramatic, grandiose yet minimal — it's everything we've come to expect from The xx!
Ch-ch-check out Together (above)!
Even if we weren't exceptionally excited to watch Baz Luhrmann work his magic with Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, and Tobey Maguire, we'd see the flick for the magnificent new music alone!!
Jay Gatsby's quest for Daisy begins May 10th and we cannot wait!!!
Is it just us or does Kanye West look A LOT happier to see Jay-Z here than he did shopping with baby-momma Kim Kardashian!?!
Now sure, Yeezy could have just been trying to keep it cool around his gurl, but the ecstasy we're seeing here when Jay stops by his NYC pad is WAY beyond any celebrity friendship we've ever seen.
Look at those smiles! Look at that glee!
But we guess Kimmy can't be too jealous — Jay's been a major player in Ye's life sooo much longer than she has! ;)
Besides, we doubt Yeezy ever shelled out the big bucks for Jay's pregnancy check-ups, LOLz!
