Beyonce Knowles intends to ”stay busy” while she is pregnant with her first child. Beyonce Knowles wants to “stay busy” during her pregnancy.
The ‘Best Thing I Never Had’ hitmaker – who turns 30 today (09.04.11) – is currently four months pregnant with her first child with music mogul Jay-Z, but intends to keep working.
A source told the Mail on Sunday: “Beyonce wants to stay busy. She plans to take part in a Michael Jackson tribute concert in October at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium via satellite link, and although she’ll take time off after the birth, she’s committed to her role in Clint Eastwood’s film ‘A Star Is Born’ and to launching a perfume next year.”
Beyonce – who has always claimed she would get pregnant by the time she turned 30 – announced her pregnancy at the MTV Video Music Awards while performing her song ‘Love on Top’ urging the crowd to “feel the love” inside of her before taking off her jacket to reveal her growing baby bump.

Who runs the pop world? Beyoncé. After a year away to spread her wings, Queen Bey is back to reclaim her throne.
Conventional wisdom holds that people should be afraid of turning 30. It’s the dreaded age when the biological clock starts tickin’ with the menace of a time bomb. Thirty is the point at which someone can call a woman “old”—and she will actually believe it. Conventional wisdom says that turning 16, 18, and 21 kicks ass. Turning 30 kicks rocks.
Of course conventional wisdom isn’t all that wise. Thirty ain’t all that bad. (In truth, women tend to be the most well-rounded and sexiest during their 30s. #justsayin) Still, it has a way of focusing people. Beyoncé Giselle Knowles turns 30 in September. She’s acutely aware of time slipping into the future. Her ticking clock, however, has nothing to do with insecure thoughts of feeling old or washed up. Not by a long shot.
No, Beyoncé is in a race against time because of a simple, bluntly put question: Where the f*&k does she go from here? What does thirtysomething feel like if you’ve accomplished everything most people could ever dream of—wealth, fame, artistic accolades, love—in your teens and twenties?
It turns out that, for Beyoncé, the answer to that question is equally simple (and bluntly put). Where does she go? Wherever the f*&k she wants to. Bey has spent the last 15 years paying dues. Now a worldwide icon, she has set her heart and mind to establishing a legacy that she’s determined will be dictated by artistic freedom. She’s not afraid of turning 30. If anything, the world should be afraid of her turning 30. Read More……
Gwyneth Paltrow has reportedly dropped out of Matthew Morrison’s tour because she is worried about how it will affect her image.
The actress – who has two kids with husband Chris Martin – was reportedly set to give the opening performance at several of the Glee star’s dates in America, but has backed out at the last minute.
A source told the Mail on Sunday: ‘Gwyneth thought it would be bad for her image to go off on a US tour. She pulled out and Matthew has cancelled a number of his gigs. But he is still planning to come to London in June and they have plans to go out to dinner. She’s not ruling out performing with him in the future.’
But Paltrow’s spokesperson has claimed: ‘There are no plans for her to tour with Matthew. There were requests for her to perform at a few events but nothing was ever confirmed.’

Katy Perry is suing an Australian magazine for running a story that suggests she had an affair with her record producer, Benny Blanco, after marrying Russell Brand. NW magazine claimed last month that Katy had an “intimate relationship” with Blanco, quoting a “friend” named Angela Summers and a “source” named Marlon David.
Unfortunately for the magazine, Katy says she doesn’t know either person.
The lawsuit filing states:
: ‘By reason of the publication of the article, the plaintiff (Perry) has been gravely injured in her reputation and feelings (and) has suffered distress, embarrassment and humiliation.’
The magazine also stated that Katy was present when Blanco mixed her California Girls track, which she says isn’t true.
Katy married Russell Brand in a Hindu ceremony in India last October. She says that the magazine didn’t check the story with her, and has refused to apologize “although it was clearly inaccurate.”

A-lister Gwyneth Paltrow loved her cameo on hit musical show Glee so much, she decided to return for a second time, to reprise her role as substitute teacher, Hollie Holiday.
The starlet is set to hit screens in the US for the second time later this week, and now we’ve got our hands on a sneaky snippet of her next song – none other than Adele’s turning tables.
The actress is set to heat up the hit show for the second time, not only leading sex education classes for McKinley High’s teens, but as the new love interest of leading man Matthew Morrison, who plays teacher Will Schuester.
Multitalented Ms Paltrow already has Joan Jett hit Do You Wanna Touch Me and Rihanna’s Umbrella under her belt, and now the actress is back to tackle a more current chart hit.
We’re not yet sure howGwynnie will perform the soulful song, but if it’s anything like her previous all-singing, all-dancing escapades, we certainly have a treat in store.
Although Gwynnie’s next Glee cameo sweeps onto American screens this week, we’ll sadly have to wait a little longer to see the latest episodes of the show – which hits British screens later this year.
Are you looking forward to seeing Gwynnie reprise her role in Glee? What are your thoughts on her latest Gleeful song? Let us know your thoughts in the comments box below.
