The “REAL” Beyonce!!

Don’t even bother ringing the alarm, the Beyhive’s already handled it.

A website called “The Beyoncé World” leaked 224 allegedly un-retouched images of Beyoncé Wednesday, sending fans into a meltdown of apocalyptic proportions.

The images were apparently taken from Beyoncé’s 2013 L’Oréal commercial shoots and ad campaigns — she is a spokesperson for the brand. The images, which Complex was able to grab, show the singer with wrinkled and blemished skin.

Here is one of Beyoncé’s L’Oréal ads, for comparison:

 

Before we move on, we’d like to clarify that Beyoncé still looks great. This is how she woke up and she remains ***flawless. While, yes, this may make you feel she is more relatable, a human even, never forget that she is still the Queen, and she is fresher than you.

Now back to the Beyhive, who collectively lost their damn mind when the images leaked, to the point where the “The Beyoncé World” was forced to remove the images within an hour of posting due to backlash.

The site owners posted a comment explaining their actions:

Due to the disdain of the BeyHive, we have removed the photos. We don’t want to cause any drama, nor do we wish to start fan wars. Some of the things we have seen posted were just horrible, and we don’t want any parts of it. We were just posting the photos to share the fact that our queen is naturally beautiful, at the same time she is just a regular woman.

Others, still, are claiming the unretouched pictures were actually doctored. YEAH RIGHT!!

The Music Industry Will Pull All The Stops To SELL ALBUMS!!

As Destiny’s Child they stormed the music charts and sold millions of records around the world. But it always seemed that Beyonce was the more prominent one in the group, somewhat overshadowing fellow members Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland.

That became even more evident when the group split up and went on to have solo careers.

From 2002 onwards, Beyonce blazed the charts with hit after hit, including tracks such as ’03 Bonnie & Clyde’ with now husband Jay-Z, ‘Crazy In Love’ and ‘Baby Boy’, in many ways leaving her Destiny’s Child bandmates in the dust. As Kelly progressed with her own solo career, it seemed that the subject of Beyonce’s success would always be raised in her interviews.

Ever the close friend, Kelly would have nothing but nice things to say about her pal and former bandmate.

But now it seems that Kelly has somewhat of a confession to make, and what her fans have been thinking for some time.

The 32-year-old songstress has just released a new track titled Dirty Laundry, where she seemingly admits that she was once jealous of now mother-of-one Beyonce.

Confessional: Kelly's emotional track was released on Wednesday

Confessional: Kelly’s emotional track was released on Wednesday

One particular lyric in the tune, which also contains very colourful language, appears to demonstrate this. Kelly sings: ‘When my sister was on stage killin’ it like a (expletive)/ I was enraged, feelin’ it like a (expletive)/ Bird in a cage/ You would never know what I was dealin’ with/ Went our separate ways but I was happy she was killin’ it/. Bittersweet she was up, I was down/ No lie, I feel good for her but what do I do now? … Post-Survivor, she on fire/ Who wanna hear my (expletive)?’

In the emotional track, Kelly also appears to reveal that she was once in an abusive relationship. ‘Meanwhile this n**a putting his hands on me… I swear y’all don’t know the half of this industry,’ she sings. Though she does not identify the man in question, Kelly sings that she went through bouts of depression after being allegedly abused by him.

She also sings that she was angry at both Beyonce and her sister for trying to rush to her aid. ‘Kinda lucky I was in her shadow/ Phone call from my sister, ‘What’s the matter?’ ‘ she sings. She then reveals that she ‘was trapped in his house’ and isolated from the ones that she loved, including Beyonce.

Hitting the window like it was me / And still it shattered / He pulled me out and said, ‘Don’t nobody love you but me / Not your mama / Not your daddy / and especially not Bey,’ she sings.

Kelly’s new song is raw and pulls heavily at the heartstrings and the chorus illustrates that she has been long longing to ‘air her dirty laundry’.

‘Let’s do this Dirty Laundry, this Dirty Laundry/ This Dirty Laundry, this Dirty Laundry,’ she sings in the chorus.

‘When you are soaked in tears for years it never airs out/ When you make pain look this good it never wears out.’

 Beyonce is yet to comment on the track, but Kelly is of course proud of her new single, and was regularly tweeting updates before the track was released on Wednesday. Kelly collaborated with producer The-Dream on the single which appears on her forthcoming album, Talk A Good Game. Coincidentally The-Dream has also collaborated with Beyonce several times in the past throughout her career.

Kelly Rowlands Upcoming Album: Talk A Good Game(2013)

I have a feeling this album will be her best yet. Expect something sensual, sexy, that grinding Bobby Brown kinda R & B. The album will feature a collaboration with Michelle and King B, upcoming single “Dirty Laundry” amongst others.

Most Airbrushed Women of Color

In fashion and entertainment beauty is preferred, but perfection is mandatory.  In the age of airbrushing that’s truer than ever.  Although celebrities and companies have both come under fire for smoothing this, and highlighting that, it hasn’t stopped anyone from putting that photo shop to workon 2-inches-too-thick thighs or crafting a slimmer nose. It’s being done to almost every celebrity in Hollywood, but when it’s done to women of color it’s twice as obvious, and three times more eyebrow-raising.  And there’s no denying that some celebs are also more airbrushed more often than others, and we rounded them up for you!

Check out the top nine most airbrushed women of color in Hollywood right now.

Celebs Who Look BANGIN’ After Having Babies

Mariah Carey is once again showing off her post-baby bod, this time on the cover of Shape magazine. The singer and wife of Nick Cannon is covering the publication’s May issue and dishing on her 30-pound weight loss after having her twins Moroccan and Monroe. The Jenny Craig spokeswoman credits her weight loss to the program that promotes portion control and increased consumption of fruits and vegetables. Carey has yet to reveal her weight but says, “Right now I am between a four or six. I worked like a fiend.”

Mariah Carey isn’t the only celeb to show off a bangin’ bod after having a baby

Christina Milian

After having baby Violet with singer The-Dream, Christina Milian was seen around L.A. whipping her body back into shape. She did it in virtually no time.

Halle Berry

Melanie Brown

Melanie Brown took a little more time than some other celebs to drop the pounds. Six months after giving birth to her son, the singer showed off her trim figure after putting on 65 pounds during her pregnancy.

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba credited working out while pregnant and credited frequent gym visits just two weeks after giving birth for her post-baby body. She tells Us Weekly, “I did prenatal yoga up until the very end. I just made healthier choices. I started working out and not going too crazy, but I did what was safe and what the doctor approved.

Kendra Wilkinson

Kendra Wilkinson had to get back in playmate shape after having her son. The bunny posed for OK magazine just eight weeks after giving birth and boasted being 25 pounds lighter.

Paula Patton

It was so hard!”

Kourtney Kardashian

Kourtney K was spotted looking much slimmer three months after having her baby. The socialite covered Life & Style to reveal how she lost 33 pounds post-pregnancy.

Is Beyoncé Really Creating ‘Blue Ivy’ Fragrance?

Blue Ivy has hardly been on this earth for a few months, and she’s already creating a footprint in the entertainment industry. After securing her place as one of the youngest ever to land on Billboard charts for her “Glory” feature, it looks as if mom Beyoncé might be looking to expand B.I.C.’s empire before her first birthday.

She just recently revised her citrus bearing “Pulse” fragrance to include a Summer version, and now it’s rumored that Bey may be in the process of creating something that she approves of for her daughter’s preciously delicate skin and hair.

Sources tell Grazia Mag, “Beyonce” allegedly uses top organic baby products on her 2-month-old daughter and may be planning on creating her very own baby perfume. Blue already has a thick head of hair. So Bey is very particular about using only the best organic shampoos, and she often rubs walnut oil into the ends with an Elsa Peretti sterling silver brush from Tiffany.”

What do you think? It’s not far fetched for Beyoncé to be trendsetting in more ways than one– she could be one of the first celebs to expand her portfolio into the realm of baby scents. We wouldn’t doubt her. This woman is getting back to business.
