If you were to draw a celebrity, Skrillex would probably be one of the most recognizable faces. Undercut. Glasses. Earrings. Done.
The dubstep maestro has finally made it big time guys. Sure, he reached success with “Bangarang” but now he’s a clue in the app “Draw Something.” If you’re not familiar with the game, players alternate between drawing pictures and guessing what the image is supposed to be. In the past, Beyonce, Eminem and The Beatles have been clues in the game but
Sonny Moore Skrillex might be a little more challenging. Though he has a lot of identifiable traits, some players might not be as familiar with him as you are.
How much is he worth? Three coins as a “hard” clue, but that seems a little low to us.
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, People magazine names Beyoncé the world’s most beautiful woman, and Harry Styles gets a new girlfriend while breaking teenage hearts along the way.
HIT: The Wanted kill it on the Today Show
To celebrate the American release of their album, the British boy band performed their smash hit, “I’m Glad You Came.” The boys kept it clean and didn’t talk about the song’s true meaning. Excuse me while I giggle while watching my other favourite dirty boy band songs, O-Town’s “Liquid Dreams” and B44’s “Get Down.”
MISS: Harry Styles caught kissing a model
Sorry ladies, Styles may have been taken off the market. Styles was caught smooching 18 year-old American model, Emma Orsilly in New Zealand last weekend. It could be worse — he may have contracted chlamydia from a koala.
HIT: Beyoncé named The World’s Most Beautiful Woman
People magazine have dubbed the singer as the World’s Most Beautiful Woman for 2012. I can’t believe it took them this long to do it. Beyoncé is FLAWLESS.
MISS: Justin Bieber pens a song for his own “Billie Jean,” Mariah Yeater
The heartthrob told reporters in London his new album will include a song about Yeater, the 20 year-old who accused the Biebs of fathering her child late last year. The paternity case may have been thrown out, but expect a watered down version of “Billie Jean” in the upcoming months. Read more…
If Beyonce’s new tumblr page tells us anything, it’s this: while she’s out there doing all this wicked cool stuff, we’re sitting here creeping her. Point: be more like Beyonce.
Of course, the blog had to go viral while we’re all at work today providing ample time to stalk and daydream. The blog shares intimate photos and videos of her life, including snaps of her and Jay Z on their honeymoon.
She also shared a video in which she’s standing next to a Blue Ivy tree. Coincidence?
Here are some of our favourite photos from the blog:
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Hilary Duff makes us melt by tweeting pictures of her baby boy and Levi Johnson knocks up another girl.
HIT Hilary Duff tweets first pics of baby for free
In an unheard of celebrity move, Hilary Duff decided not to famewhore her adorable baby and tweet photos for free! I always knew you would do the right thing, Lizzie!
MISS Alaska’s Biggest Douche, Levi Johnston, knocks up another girl
Levi Johnston confirmed the news the same day Sarah Palin was on the Today show. Burn! He also apparently plans to cash in by selling interviews. I wish someone would teach him how to put a johnson on his Johnston because he needs to stop reproducing to make money.
HIT Beyonce shares personal photos on tumblr
Beyonce is notoriously private with her personal life but posted some intimate photos on her tumblr blog, which recently went live. It features moments from her honeymoon with Jay Z too.
MISS Lisa Robin Kelly, a.k.a. Laurie from That 70’s Show, says her roommate set her up Read more…
You can hardly recognize some of these musicians back when they were teens. It shows the dramatic transformation some celebs go through
(ahem Marilyn Manson, Madonna), although others look virtually the same, like Katy Perry above.
The photos remind me of the Skrillex evolution we saw last week. I don’t think my high school pictures are so unrecognizable but I will say I rocked a pretty intense side bang.
Last night’s episode of SNL was hosted by Maya Rudolph with performances by Sleigh Bells. The best act of the night was a Beyonce/Jay-Z sketch in which celebrities paid their respects to baby Blue Ivy Carter. Angelina tried to kidnap the Blue Ivy to add to her baby collection and an overly-excited Taylor Swift came through saying nothing at all. My fave visitors were Fred Armisen from Portlandia creeping over Ivy’s crib and giving her a creepy one-sided grin and Justin Timberlake putting himself to sleep strumming his canoe-guitar as Bon Iver.
Another great part of the night was a performance by musical duo Sleigh Bells. They also revealed that Jack White will be a musical guest on March 3 with Lindsay Lohan as host. It’ll be an interesting dynamic and I wonder if Lohan will poke fun at her longtime tabloid headlines.
As the holiest day of chocolate and flowers approaches, we thought we’d help those in need with a playlist of some of the greatest break-up or heartbreak songs of all time.
Almost every song on the radio seems to be about love, right? It’s the time of the year when the lonely feel loneliest and it seems like everyone else is playing tonsil-hockey, smiling and you have nothing except a Ryan Gosling marathon and a tub of Ben and Jerrys waiting at home. Well, we can’t do anything about that – but we can provide a melancholy soundtrack of some of the saddest songs of all time. We’ll venture into the 80s with some Joy Division, Springsteen, U2 and Pat Benetar while visiting ballads from modern artists like Cee-Lo, Beyonce and of course – Adele.
Enjoy wisely. Stare out your window at the falling rain if you have to.
Beyonce and Jay-Z have released the first photos of their baby, Blue Ivy Carter via their personal Tumbler account, helloblueivy with the following message:
“We welcome you to share in our joy. Thank you for respecting our privacy at this time in our lives.
-The Carter Family.”
How hip of the hippest couple in hip-hop to go about this route rather than sell the photos to a glossy magazine. Behold, Blue Ivy Carter…
How does that saying go again? If you like it when you should have put a trademark on it?
It appears new parents Jay-Z and Beyonce are going to brand their new daughter’s name. Not for prosperity but for products.
E! Online reports the two were spotted filing paperwork with the U.S. Patent and Trademark office on Janaury 26. They want to take ownership of their daughter’s name if any opportunist wants to make money off of it. For instance, I can’t come out with a line of baby formula called “Blue Ivy” anymore, unless I want to get sued for millions.
Apparently any parent, whether they’re famous or not, can trademark their child’s name while they’re still a minor. It just takes a lot of paperwork.
Today on #freshpresslive, Natalia dishes the news on Miley Cyrus breaking her tailbone, a 100 year old woman who plays the Nintendo DS to stay young and Houston, Texas contemplating a statute of Beyonce.
It appears the San Jacinto Monument isn’t enough to draw in tourists to Houston, Texas. Perhaps a Beyonce monument would do the trick.
Perez Hilton reports two men from Armdeonce Ventures are currently seeking out private donors in order to build a monument for the breakout Destiny’s Child star.
Marcus Mitchell, one half of Team Beyonce Monument says she’s the number one performer from Houston and it’s only fair that the city acknowledges her successful music career.
“We wanted to construct a massive hall…if you donated to the monument, you’ll have a separate nameplate. There will be clips of Beyonce with Destiny’s Child and wardrobe like a mini museum.”
It seems a little premature to honour the 30-year-old R&B singer, but if Detroit could put up a statue of Robocop, Houston should be able to do the same with Beyonce.
Many were in the race to become America’s Next Top Godmother. Beyonce and Jay-Z had a hefty list to choose from.
Gwyneth Paltrow could have been that intellectually stimulating godmother that teaches the kid about veganism and yoga. Kelly Rowland (remember her from Destiny’s Child?) could have been the stylish godmother, taking the kid shopping on Rodeo Drive.
According to Media Takeout, the new parents have picked Oprah as Blue Ivy’s godmother. This is a reasonable selection because doesn’t Oprah feel like she’s everybody’s godmother? Jay-Z’s close friend Tyran Smith is the godfather but he’s obviously eclipsed by the Lord and saviour that is Oprah.
This further proves that Blue Ivy Carter will rule the world when she turns 18.
Here’s another post to remind you of all the things in the world Beyonce has that you never will.
The Huffington Post says an Australian taxonomists (one that studies bugs) recently discovered a rare type of horse fly and of course, he had to name it after Queen B, Beyonce.
“It was the unique dense golden hairs on the fly’s abdomen that led me to name this fly in honor of the performer,” Bryan Lessard told the media.
Other celebrites that have been named after creepy crawlies include Neil Young, member of the Rolling Stones and Bill Gates.
Ever since King Jay and Queen B gave birth to their first child this past weekend, everyone’s curious to see what their baby girl looks like and more importantly, how hot she’ll grow to be at the age of 18.
Normally, when celebrities have babies, they go into hiding for a few weeks until we spot their photo on the cover of People Magazine as we’re paying for our groceries. Those kind of magazine covers always gets the new parents millions of dollars.
While we wait for the day Blue Ivy Carter graces the cover of tabloid magazines, we can only imagine what she’d look like with the latest meme in cyberspace: photoshopping Jay-Z’s head on a baby’s body. 20 years from now Blue Ivy will look at this and laugh. Either that or run away in embarrassment.
Buzzfeed has compiled a list of 25 people who have taken to various social media sites to propagate the theory that Jay-Z and Beyonce’s new baby girl is the antichrist.
Most people on this hysterical list of idiots believe that the name Blue is an acronym for “Born Living Under Evil.” Many are calling her a “demon baby”, convinced that the child (actually named after Jay-Z’s “The Blueprint” album and the roman numeral IV) is bad news.
Some have even gone further with their hypothesis claiming the name backwards (Eulb Yvi) is the latin name for Satan’s female daughter. Fortunately for the Carter family, there’s no mention of Eulb Yvi in the bible at all and most reports are denying any such character exists.
This is by far the most irrational theory of 2012 so far but it’s still so early in the year. If you consume enough narcotics, however, anything is possible. It reminds me of the conspiracy theories surrounding Paul McCartney’s supposed death based on the Abby Road album cover. Or another crackpot belief that if you play “Stairway To Heaven” backwards it reveals satanic messages.
We’ll soon discover whether or not Blue Ivy is the devil once the couple leak expensive photos to a tabloid magazine. If Blue’s rocking red eyes and breathing out fire, then yes, maybe those 25 people were right. Incase you were wondering, we saved you the time and checked the Google translation below (it means nothing).
As you might have overheard – Hova is officially a big poppa. Beyonce gave birth to a baby girl named Blue Ivy Carter this past Saturday.
Being the only family member with a last name, the proud father celebrated by penning a new song on his lifestyle website Life + Times. The track is called “Glory” (Ft. B.I.C.), which likely stands for her given name and her subtle participation is featured at the end of the song.
Produced by Pharell, the song is bare-boned and direct as he reveals that he and Beyonce have tried making a baby before: ”Last time the miscarriage was tragic / We was afraid you’d disappear but nah baby you’re magic.”
He goes on to express joy over his “greatest creation” that he rhapsodizes to be “the child of destiny / you’re my child with the child from Destiny’s child”
This song is a great follow-up to the Throne’s fatherhood declarations in “New Day”. Get that kleenex ready and listen to “Glory” below.
Also, you can’t argue how funny thing photo we found on Tumblr is:
It has finally happened – Beyonce gave birth to a baby girl on Saturday in New York City. The baby is named Ivy Blue Carter, reports TMZ. The baby reportedly was delivered by a c-section.
Rihanna tweeted, “Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih”
Hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons also took to Twitter, saying … “congrats to my good friends Beyonce and Jay-Z.”
What do you think about the name Ivy Blue? It is definitely unique.
Some people take their music very serious – sometimes too serious. An Ohio man has been stabbed for not knowing that Jay-Z and Beyonce were married.
Donald Deaver was arrested and charged with felonious assault for allegedly stabbing a 48-year-old Garfield Heights, Ohip man following an argument.
Fox 8 reports the fight began because the victim did not know that singer Beyonce’s husband is rapper Jay-Z. The incident occurred around 11:00 p.m. on December 31, 2011, outside Deaver’s apartment.
This story is both very funny and sad….
MediaTakeOut is reporting that Beyonce is due to give birth on Wednesday. An insider claims that the family has been told on Wednesday morning they will be taken a hospital to “be a part” of the child birth.
Beyonce and Jay-Z are so concerned about security, all the details are being kept under wraps. Apparently, Beyonce’s mom doesn’t even know anything more than she will be going somewhere on Wednesday.
We will have to wait and see what happens on Wednesday.
2011, like any other year, was full of sex, drugs, violence and even some dancing monkeys. Music videos from such artists like Bruno Mars and Britney Spears have kept us entertained from January until December. Here at andPOP, we can’t wrap up a fantastic year without discussing our top ten music videos.
10. Dr. Dre and Eminem – “I Need a Doctor”
Dr. Dre’s first official single in over a decade and we love how the video walks us through the rapper’s life.
