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……

The controversial wheel-chair number divided critics at the exclusive gig.
Lady Gaga is so weird that we’ve kinda just gotten used to it. Nothing she does really shocks us anymore. Gaga, perhaps sensing that her weirdness has become normal, decided to really make her fans drop their jaws at her concert in Sydney on Wednesday by coming on stage in a wheelchair.
The move did not go over well with those in attendance. After her performance, while leaving a Sydney club, Gaga and her entourage were egged by fans who thought her disability routine was offensive rather than outrageous. Gaga herself wasn’t directly hit by an egg, but her group was, and you can be sure that they were aiming for her, even if they did miss.
It’s not the first time that Gaga has addressed disabilities or used a wheelchair. During the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards she hired an able-bodied dancer for her Paparazzi routine, but the catch was he would be performing in a wheelchair. Gaga also rolled out in a wheelchair in her Paparazzi video, after having been pushed over a railing by her on-screen boyfriend Alexander Skarsgard.
What do you think – was it harmlessly outrageous or highly offensive?
WHEN Christina Aguilera was six years old, she would escape the chaos and trauma of her family by thinking of Julie Andrews singing “The Sound of Music.” “I watched her twirl around those mountains, and she was just so free,” Aguilera recalled when we met to talk about her nightmare tabloid year of divorce, flubbed lyrics, falls on national television, winding up in the wrong bed, and (finally) triumph.
“I felt caged by my childhood. And unsafe: Bad things happened in my home; there was violence. The Sound of Music looked like a form of release. I would open my bedroom window to sing out like Maria. In my own way, I’d be in those hills.” Aguilera paused. She is small and, as she spoke, was nearly swallowed by a large, overstuffed couch in the lobby lounge of the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Manhattan, where she was staying.
Aguilera looked more “Oliver” than von Trapp—she was dressed like an urchin in a large gray sweater and black leggings, and her bright yellow hair was barely visible under a sideways schoolboy cap. Her skin was pale; she was not wearing her trademark red lipstick but, as a kind of concession to girlishness, had on sky-high platform stripper heels. “Sometimes,” Aguilera continued, “especially in the last six months, I still feel like going to the window and singing out all my troubles.”
She looked down, laughed quietly, and shook her head a little. “I laugh a lot lately. People expect me to cry, but I always laugh when things go wrong.” Read More Here: W Magazine Online

The singer kicks her jaw-dropping style up by rocking a revealing beaded bikini on her “Loud” tour. Check out her sexy stage costume!
Summary: Over the weekend Rihanna unveiled an innovation when it comes to bikinis which was constructed from neon-colored beads. She stripped down to the beaded bikini during her performance on her Loud Tour in Baltimore, Maryland, at first it was concealed by a blue trench coat that she entered the stage wearing which she later removed. We have said it so many times that Rihanna loves to wear unusual outfits she could be compared to lady gaga but we won’t go there since we know deep down that Lady Gaga goes too far when it comes to her wardrobe.
