Beyonce Spills Beauty Secrets

Beyonce shares some of her beauty secrets with Elle.

Any anti-fatigue beauty tricks?
I always keep a pair of Ray-Bans handy! And sometimes I put a little gold eye shadow in the inner corners of my eyes—it’s more subtle than white, but it still really makes you look more awake.

What do you use to give your body skin that velvety sheen?
I layer on bronzers for public appearances. I love L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze One Day gel, which you can just get at Walmart, and Scott Barnes Body Bling is also great.

You do your own makeup for performances. Why not use a makeup artist?
It’s a way of getting into the zone—it’s part of becoming Sasha Fierce. I’m able to sit down for an hour and play around with makeup, which I find really relaxing and fun. Before a tour, I have my makeup artist design a look for me—she draws it on paper to show me where to put everything.

Did it make you more fearless about experimenting as an adult?
Definitely. I’m still always doing something to my hair—cutting layers, or bleaching it, or taking it upon myself to copy fashionable hairstyles without knowing the necessary techniques. A couple of weeks ago, I cut my own bangs and put highlights in the front. When my stylist saw me, she was like, “What did you do?!” I did a pretty good job, but she still had to fix it. We’re always joking that I’m a frustrated hairdresser.

You famously did the Master Cleanse for your role in Dreamgirls. Would you ever do it again?
Never. I did it to lose weight really fast, but it wasn’t fun. There are healthier ways to lose weight—I wouldn’t recommend it.

***Bey does her own make-up for performances? Who knew.

Here for the full story.

According to Radaronline, Nicki Minaj is being sued for using a 2008 Lamborghini Murcielago during her, “Massive Attack,” video shoot. Hollywood Exotic Car Rental claims that Minaj’s camp did not have permission to use the vehicle, nor did they have authorization to wrap the car in “barbie pink.” She is being sued for $11,589.41 in damages.

(I made the “barbie” color up, but it is a pink. BTW, what color is Jay-Z blue?)

Interview: Lil Kim to Drake, "How b*tchy do you look right now?"

You MUST listen to this interview. Lil Kim does an interview on thisis50.com, where she addresses Drake’s response to her comments about Nicki Minaj (Part 2 of interview), her issues w/ the Notorious movie, and how she REALLY feels about Puffy (Part 3 of interview).

Oh, and she mentions that during her jail stint, Puffy never visited her, wrote letters, or put a dollar on her books. She did share that Oprah wrote her three letters and sent books, as did Tyra Banks and her good friend Marc Jacobs (Part 3 of interview). She also breaks down the actual history of how the Lil Kim v Nicki Minaj beef actually started (Part 1 & 2).

Part 1: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBn0wZmFFUc&feature=player_embedded]

Part 2: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMosOso8iPk&feature=player_embedded]

Part 3: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1WO6wZuP9c&feature=player_embedded]

Puffy never put any $$ on Lil Kim’s book, never wrote a letter–nada. Oprah wrote Lil Kim three letters, sent books…Marc Jacobs showed mad love, as well as Tyra Banks.

Paparazzi gon’ get you one way or anotherLast night, Kelly Rowland partied it up with celebs at London’sWhisky Mist. Pap’s got Kelly’s backside in this disastrous outfit on her way out. Outside of her thong showing, the outfit just isn’t working. Maybe she didn’t it on purpose? I’m #teamkelly anyhow. Photo compliments of toyaz-world.net
