Beyoncé Signs With Sony/ATV Music Publishing (EXCLUSIVE)

Beyoncé has signed with Sony/ATV Music Publishing, Variety has learned. Beyoncé and Jay-Z have worked closely for much of their careers with Jon Platt, who took the reins at the Sony Music company as chairman and CEO in 2019. Platt already brought Rihanna over to his new home last fall, after moving to Sony/ATV from […]

Beyoncé & JAY-Z Send Reese Witherspoon Champagne After Funny Golden Globes Moment!

Reese Witherspoon just found herself a couple of new drinking buddies!

The Morning Show star took to her Instagram Stories on Thursday to show off a surprise gift she was sent by Beyoncé and JAY-Z: a case of their Ace of Spades champagne!

Why did the superstar couple send the actress a case of bubbly, you ask? Well, it all goes back to the 2020 Golden Globes on Sunday.

During the award show, Reese and co-star Jennifer Aniston ran out of water at their table, so naturally the Legally Blonde star went over to Bey and Jay’s table and asked for some refreshments — and came back with a few glasses of their champagne that they brought to the ceremony!

It was all documented on Jen’s Insta Stories (below):

Flash forward to Thursday: the Big Little Lies producer came back home from New York to find a surprise package from the couple. She told her followers in the video:

“I just got home from New York, and the most beautiful flowers are here, and a case of Ace of Spades champagne.”

The special delivery came complete with a note from Jay and B, which hilariously read:

“More water.”

Ha!

Reese went on to open the bottle of champagne with her mom Betty, who was a bit hesitant to drink at 11:30 in the morning. But, as Reese put it, “who cares!?” She captioned the post:

“It’s 5 o’clock somewhere right??”

It sure is, gurl!

After a dramatic pop of the bottle, Reese and Betty had a sip of the bubbly, which tasted AH-Mazing, unsurprisingly.

Reese gushed:

“It’s really good. It’s a good way to start the New Year.”

Reese may not have walked away with a Golden Globe this week, but we think free champagne from Beyoncé and JAY-Z is a great consolation prize!

Ch-ch-check out the fun video (below):

For those who don’t know, Jay purchased Ace of Spades (the brand’s actual name is Armand de Brignac Champagne) in 2014, and it has since become a staple at clubs, bars, and restaurants all over the country.

The brand is also well regarded among wine critics; in 2016, Armand de Brignac Blanc de Noirs Assemblage One (A1) was awarded the #1 Blanc De Noirs in the World for 2016 by FINE Champagne Magazine. The following year, Armand de Brignac Brut Rosé was awarded Best Rosé Champagne in the World for 2017 by TastingBook.com. But of course, this liquid prestige doesn’t come cheap: each bottle costs about $300!

Drink up, Reese!

Beyoncé Gets Called Out For Not Giving Joaquin Phoenix A Standing Ovation At The Golden Globes!

Despite only one nomination and zero wins on the night, Beyoncé has quickly become one of the hottest topics of the 2020 Golden Globes.

No, it’s not because she and husband JAY-Z skipped the red carpet and showed up an hour late to the show. And no, it had nothing to do with the fact that the power couple shamelessly brought their own brand of bubbly to the awards ceremony on Sunday, either.

As it turns out, the Lemonade singer upset quite a few critics for remaining seated when Joaquin Phoenix won Best Actor in a Motion Picture — Drama for his role in Joker!

When the 45-year-old got up to claim the coveted trophy, almost everyone in the room responded with a standing ovation. Everyone except Queen Bey, that is!

We have no idea why the entertainer chose not to get up from her seat (and we probably never will, she rarely comments on these things), however, we have to applaud the camera guy for catching the seemingly innocuous move for us all to see.

In case you missed the broadcast, ch-ch-check out the supposed snub captured (below):

In a room full of A-listers, Beyoncé separated herself from the pack! / (c) NBC/Twitter

It’s worth noting Bey did appear to give the actor a round of applause. But her decision to sit while others stood left Twitter fiercely divided!

As we hinted earlier, some felt the former Destiny’s Child frontwoman’s move was very disrespectful. One particularly bothered user wrote:

And others echoed that sentiment with more angry comments:

“Out of respect, she should’ve stood up. Wtf

“Pretty rude, tbh”

“thoroughly distasteful”

“Why is everyone praising Beyonce not standing for Joaquin Phoenix? She’s classless.”

“It makes her look bad tbh. And I’m a Beyoncé fan. I thought it was because her dress would have blocked others view and she was being courteous.”

Meanwhile, those who spoke up in defense of Blue Ivy‘s momma argued her custom Schiaparelli couture gown and its massive gold shoulder pads might have blocked the camera’s view of Joaquin!

ICYMI, see her stunning ensemble here:

And read those supportive fan reactions, too:

“Let’s not create any mess here.. she most likely didnt stand because she would be in way when he walked by. She smiled and clapped”

“i know y’all are not hating on beyoncé just because she didn’t stand up for joaquin when he won 😭 get over yourselves”

“Just putting it out there. MAYBE Beyoncé didn’t stand during Joaquin Phoenix’s standing ovation because her dress was massive & would have been a pain to get out of her chair with and then gather it to sit down again. Just a thought. Maybe it wasn’t a statement. #GoldenGlobes”

“Let me get out these comments before I go off on one of y’all. It was probably hard for her to stand in her dress. Y’all need to mind your businesssssss!”

Hmm…

So, as you can see, people had a LOT of feelings about it! But this user seemed to have a much different takeaway from the whole debacle:

So, was Beyoncé caught in a literal tight situation with her dress? Was she not-so-secretly not a fan of Phoenix’s Joker? Or is this whole thing a ridiculous mess blown completely out of proportion?

It’s time for you to weigh in, Perezcious readers! Let us know your thoughts in the comments section (below)!

Beyonce and Jay-Z Arrive to Golden Globes Nearly an Hour Late

Beyonce and Jay-Z have arrived to the Golden Globes, albeit nearly an hour late. The power couple entered the Beverly Hilton almost an hour into the ceremony, when Kate McKinnon was introduced on stage to present Ellen DeGeneres the Carol Burnett Award. They stood in the aisle during McKinnon’s introduction and took their seats before […]

Beyoncé Shares Intimate ‘Bey-Cap’ Video Of 2019 — Watch!

As we head into a new year, it’s time to look back and reflect on the past 12 months. No, not YOUR past 12 months — Beyoncé’s!

That’s right, y’all: it’s time for a Bey-Cap of 2019!

The music superstar took to Instagram on Wednesday to bless her 137 million followers with a minute and a half long re-cap video highlighting her best and brightest moments of the year.

Naturally, there were plenty of dazzling moments from star-studded events, like the Oscars after party and Diddy’s 50th birthday party. But there were also lots of intimate family moments, like Blue Ivy’s 7th birthday and Rumi and Sir’s 2nd birthday!

The video was really a blink-and-you’ll miss it experience, so we’ll break it down for you…

Let us start from the beginning: the video kicked off with snaps from last year’s New Years party, with Queen Bey stunning in a sheer light blue dress with an intricate headpiece. In another snap from this night, Blue was seen sharing a dance with Jay:

Awww!

The Bey-Cap also included several shots from the star’s acclaimed Netflix documentary, Homecoming, which chronicled her 2018 Coachella performance in April. Unsurprisingly, some clips included the Destiny’s Child reunion featured in the performance:

Later on in the video, fans got a look at Jay and Bey with the family on vacation. One of the clips showed the couple and Blue waving sparklers during the Fourth of July, while another showed Bey and the kids in matching bathing suits on a sunny getaway:

Summer for the Knowles-Carters also included the premiere of Disney’s live-action Lion King remake, which Bey lent her voice to for both the film (as Nala) and the soundtrack. The Bey-Cap showed pics from the two premieres in El Lay and London — during which the couple met face to face with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

As for Bey-siness matters, the Bey-Cap shared photos and clips from her photoshoot for the re-launch of her Ivy Park athletic-wear line with Adidas.

There were also, of course, plenty of fashionable moments from the various events and award shows Bey and Jay attended over the course of the year, including the private “yellow party” she threw in April; the GLAAD awards, where they were honored with an award; and the AFI awards, where the songstress honored filmmaker Melina Matsoukas with the Franklin J. Schaffner Alumni Medal.

Overall, it was a very exciting year for ‘Yoncé. Ch-ch-check out the full video (below) to see more highlights!

Nick Jonas

Going to the gym every day simply isn’t sustainable for Nick Jonas! So instead of forcing himself and hating it, he finds other ways to get exercise, like playing sports!

He told E! more about that:

“I hate going to the gym. I think everybody hates cardio to some degree. I’m not the kind of person who wakes up in the morning and can’t wait to work out. I kind of dread it, actually. I see it as a necessary evil. So, I started to include more fun activities instead of just going to the gym all the time. So it’s a ton of different sports that I play along with traditional workout stuff.”

Carrie Underwood

For that fit feeling, country music star Carrie Underwood swears by Tabata training!

The super singer told Shape how the timed workout pushes her to her limits:

“My favorite workout is Tabata, which I can do at home in about a half hour. I’m in love with it! It’s hard, but it really works. I choose seven different exercises, like squats, lunges, or pushups, and do eight rounds of each – 20 seconds on, 20 seconds off for eight rounds. It really revs up my metabolism. When I’m done, I can handle anything.”

Valerie Bertinelli

Valerie Bertinelli has had a lot of success with mindfulness, and paying attention to what she’s eating — literally! She told Shape:

“It’s about taking the time before food goes in your mouth to be aware: Am I aware that I’m eating this? And am I eating it because I’m hungry or because I need to soothe myself?”

Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore fitness tips

Telling herself she can’t have something at all just doesn’t work for Drew Barrymore!

The actress told Shape how moderation has really helped her:

“I just think you should eat less of everything. A little bit less. I don’t want to live a life where you can’t have what you want; it just makes you want it more.”

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah knows the secret, y’all! / (c) WENN

Oprah Winfrey knows the secret — and the secret is that, well, there is no secret.

As she told Shape, you just have to put in the work if you want to see results:

“What I know for sure is this: The big secret in life is that there is no big secret. Whatever your goal for this year is, you can get there—as long as you’re willing to be honest with yourself about the preparation and work involved. There are no back doors, no free rides. There’s just you, this moment, and a choice.”

Kate Hudson

For Kate Hudson, fitness starts right in the center — of her body, that is!

The shape wear icon told Harper’s Bazaar all about her highly specific exercise regimen:

“Sometimes I’ll just move around and dance around to kind of just sweat because I feel like I need to get things circulating. But I’m not hardcore about it. But my exercise go-to’s are Brazilian Butt Lifts — it’s just really, really concentrating on your core and your butt — and Pilates.”

JAY-Z And Beyoncé

If your motivation is lagging, don’t try to go it alone!

Personal trainer Marco Borges revealed to E! how long-time clients Beyoncé and JAY-Z have found sustained fitness success by doing things together:

“They’re like every other couple, they love spending time together. They’ll work out together whenever it’s possible, whenever their touring schedules allow. They’ll [absolutely] jump in the gym together whenever they can. She’ll be running and he’ll be on a bike, or she’ll be jumping rope and he’ll be running.”

Adam Levine

Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine likes to keep things very zen!

The lean, sexy musician told Men’s Health about the importance of yoga for his overall fitness — and his mental health and well-being:

“Yoga has made me more successful. I love it and don’t know what I’d do without it. I have a hard time sitting still. I can be all over the map. Yoga has given me the ability to be more focused and make better decisions that come from a clear place.”

Marisa Miller

Marisa Miller sure has an interesting way to keep those junk food cravings at bay, as she told Shape.

And it’s so crazy, it just might work:

“Eating smart is all about having an awareness of your body. The most obvious way to do that is by seeing it. So when you’re trying to lose weight, spend more time wearing less. I don’t think I could eat a plate of nachos naked — could you?”

Jennifer Lopez

Don’t mess with Jennifer Lopez! The Latina-licious lady loves to get her kicks in the boxing ring to stay fit and keep her confidence high, as she told Marie Claire:

“I’m like a fighter, going into the ring. I do my cardio and I do my workouts with the Tracy Anderson Method. Sometimes when I get home and I’m not feeling so great, I make myself go to the gym. Then I come home and take a shower, put on a great outfit, some makeup, tie my hair up, and I feel pepped up and great about myself.”

Jessica Biel

Jessica Biel has a phenomenal body — but everything she did to get it was completely run-of-the-mill!

She told Marie Claire all about how staying consistent (and boring!) has kept her fit:

“For me, getting enough sleep, drinking lots of water, having a healthy diet and staying away from alcohol are musts. It’s so boring, I know, but doing those things really helps.”

Ellie Goulding

Ellie Goulding has loved to run for a long time now, and it’s been great!

But she told Reveal that she likes to mix it up from time to time, so she doesn’t get bored:

“When I was 18, I woke up one day and decided to go running, like Forrest Gump! But now I mix it up a lot. I do boxing, yoga, gymnastics and a lot of intense cardio workouts, too. Recently I’ve been putting on music that has more of an epic, orchestral feel to it, like Hans Zimmer. You can pretend you’re running away from the apocalypse!”

Jillian Michaels

Jillian Michaels has certainly earned her reputation as the toughest of celebrity trainers, but ironically, as she told Shape, much of her day-to-day success comes from giving herself a break:

“Nobody is perfect, so get over the fear of being or doing everything perfectly. Besides, perfect is boring. Today, instead of picking yourself apart in the mirror or with friends over drinks, start seeing your ‘imperfections’ as unique traits that give you character and dimension—because that’s exactly what they are.”

Justin Bieber

Gotta keep his figure looking sexy for new wife Hailey!

Pop superstar Justin Bieber told E! how he opts for lots of strength training, broken down across muscle groups to avoid over-use injuries:

“I workout with my personal trainer, Patrick Nilsson, five days a week for about 45 minutes each. We do three-day splits: back and triceps one day, chest and biceps on day two, shoulder and legs on day three and abs on every other day. I’m not on a special diet, but I do try to watch what I eat. I do eat unhealthy sometimes!”

Iggy Azalea

Iggy Azalea is a busy woman, and she doesn’t always have time to go to the gym for an hour or two!

She told HotNewHipHop how important it is for her to create small workouts for herself throughout the day:

“When you’re a woman, you try to make time for the gym, and for a big workout routine. I find with what I’m doing, that seems impossible. If you just take the time to do some squats, and also some sit-ups every night before you go to bed. That’s the best thing. Just don’t skip it, like brushing your teeth.”

Khloé Kardashian Takes The Long View

It’s been a long road to fitness for Khloé Kardashian, as she jokingly told People in an interview about her exercise history.

Clearly, she has a good sense of humor about it all, but more importantly, she always sees the bigger picture:

“My fitness journey will be a life-long journey. Fitness is not about being better than someone else, it’s about being better than you used to be. I’m not where I want to be, and who knows if I ever will be. But I am healthier than ever, and due to my consistent workouts, I am slowly seeing results. Hi baby abs! I see you! I hope to meet your other ab friends soon! Yes, I’m talking to my muscles. I’ve never met most of them before.”

Jennifer Hudson

Jennifer Hudson knows fitness is more than just the exercise or the nutrition — there’s a mental component here, too!

She told Shape all about her journey to mindfulness, and how it has helped her health:

“The key thing is figuring out what your issues are, and it’s really never about the food. You have to be real and honest with yourself. I had to stop and look and ask myself, ‘Why do I want this? What is the real reason?’ At times it was comfort food like chocolate. I love chocolate and I realized it relaxes me, so when you acknowledge what the issue is, you can control it better.”

Michael Jordan

Just because you’re the greatest basketball player in history doesn’t mean everything physical is always easy forever!

Michael Jordan told Shape how much of a role resiliency can play:

“If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I’ve had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”

Rihanna

Rihanna has an incredibly busy schedule — and with it, she needs accountability! She told Elle that the best way for her to ensure that is by working with a professional:

“Cardio is the key. I have a personal trainer who travels with me if we have a big event coming up. I work out every day but I need a trainer to motivate me.”

Jessie J

Jessie J begins with the end in mind! / (c) WENN/Avalon

We get it, nobody ever feels like going to work out.

But once you get started, as Jessie J explained to Reveal, the feeling at the end of the workout is totally worth the work:

“It really makes me feel positive. It releases endorphins, and I never really used to believe that until I started working out. You do really get this sluggish feeling before a workout where you’re like, ‘Oh I don’t want to do it’, and you might feel a little low. But you do a workout and it gives you that pick-up. It makes me feel alive.”

There you have it, Perezcious readers!

So many ways to get fit and feel better in the New Year!

Now, to get off our butts and get started… Yep, that’s the hard part… No, seriously, we’ll get up soon, just five more minutes on the laptop first, mmmkay?! LOLz!

But together, we can all do it! And we believe in you!

Biggest Celeb Scandals Of The Decade!

It has been a DECADE, y’all.

We’re not talking OJ Simpson or Princess Diana here, but the 2010s had some pretty wild, gut-wrenching, salacious, and jaw-dropping scandals of its own. Cheating, breakups, breakdowns, major courtroom battles, and, unfortunately, a whole lot of dirty old men. What a decade for debauchery…

Related: PewDiePie Is Taking A Break From YouTube In 2020!

There were so many to choose from, in fact, that we had a TON of trouble narrowing it down to the ten best (ten worst?). So… there’s a lengthy honorable mention list at the bottom of this post, too.

But without further ado, get into what you want and re-live the world’s craziness! Here are the ten BIGGEST celeb scandals of the 2010s (below):

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries

Kim Kardashian Kris Humphries celeb scandals 2010s
They barely made it two months, but boy, what a stir they caused! / (c) WENN

It’s the wedding heard ’round the world… Kim Kardashian West and Kris Humphries tied the knot in an over-the-top ceremony in 2011, but just 72 days later, the KUWTK star filed for divorce. At the time, the entire thing was seen as a publicity stunt for the Kardashian family’s still relatively new reality TV show. Things must have been really bad behind the scenes, though, because Kim barely made it past two months before being forced to officially split from the NBA star.

For his part, Humphries long threatened litigation over the entire incident, alleging he’d been used as fodder for the fam’s reality TV show, too. Nothing much ever came of it, though, and the pair’s divorce was finalized in April 2013. We look back on this wedding now with amusement, but at the time, this was a really significant scandal. Backlash was so severe that it seemed for a while as though it might derail the Kardashian fam’s rise to reality TV mega fame right then and there. It didn’t, of course, and the fam has only gotten bigger, but the Kris Humphries wedding marked one major mistake for a fam that very, very rarely steps out of line in the public eye. LOLz!

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson

Kristen Stewart Robert Pattison celeb scandals 2010s
This scandal was so hot in 2012, even Donald Trump couldn’t stop obsessing over it! / (c) LK/WENN

It was one of the most high-profile cheating scandals ever… in 2012, while dating her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson, superstar actress Kristen Stewart got caught making out with Rupert Sanders, her Snow White and the Huntsman director. Sanders was married at the time, and had his own fall-out to deal with back at home. Stewart bore the brunt of the public’s reaction to the cheating scandal, and later publicly apologized for her major mistake. The apology was genuine and the remorse worked — for a while, at least — though she and Pattinson eventually called it quits for good a year later, in 2013.

As far as breakups and cheating scandals go, this is the biggest one of the decade in some ways. The media scrutiny on these two was already beyond intense after Twilight‘s release — and then, to have a successful real-life couple come out of the movie, only to have it all end like this. Just… wow. Even Donald Trump was obsessed with this couple for a while!

Amanda Bynes

Amanda Bynes celeb scandals 2010s
The 2010s started out so promising for Amanda Bynes, until… / (c) WENN

Amanda Bynes‘ career was on an upward trajectory in the late 2000s, fresh off her long-standing stints on All That and What I Like About You and several movies, like She’s The Man. But behind the scenes, by the time the 2010s hit, it was all bad for the former Nickelodeon star, who was in the beginning stages of a brutal Adderall addiction combined with major mental health issues that had apparently long been simmering. After dropping out of two movies — Post Grad and Hall Pass — Bynes took a hiatus from acting, and the trouble began.

In 2012, she was arrested on DUI charges in West Hollywood, and in 2013, she was charged with reckless endangerment and possession of marijuana during a run-in with the cops in New York City. Later that same year, she set a small fire in front of a random home in Thousand Oaks, California, and was put on a 72-hour involuntary psych hold; she almost lit her dog on fire in the process, as well. Erratic behavior and extremely bizarre tweets followed throughout these years, helping to develop her reputation as remarkably unstable. Eventually, her parents were granted a conservatorship over her affairs, and slowly but surely, things started to get better. In 2018, she revealed she’d been sober for four years thanks to her parents, and in 2019, though she had a scare at the end of the year, she was apparently looking for her own place to live once again.

Bill Cosby

Bill Cosby celeb scandals 2010s
If you were to select a motto for the 2010s, perhaps it would be: “Oh, how the mighty have fallen.” / (c) WENN

A one-off comment on stage in October 2014 by comedian Hannibal Buress led to the downfall of one of the most iconic comedians and sitcom stars of all time. Mad that Cosby would criticize young black comics, Buress called out long-standing but largely unknown rape and sexual assault allegations against the former Cosby Show star. Buress had been commenting on the allegations as part of his act for months, but for whatever reason, a video of the comic’s comments on that fateful day went viral, and a media firestorm ensued. By the end of 2014, more than 60 women had come forward with credible sexual assault accusations against Cosby — some decades old — and the thoroughly disgraced icon had gone from legend to pariah in a matter of months.

One woman, Andrea Constand, was still within the statute of limitations on her accusations, and Cosby was forced to go to trial, facing three counts of aggravated indecent assault against the former Temple University employee. In 2018, Cosby was found guilty and sentenced to three to ten years in state prison. It was a remarkably light punishment relative to how many women came forward with horrific stories about their time with Cosby. Even to this day, it’s almost unimaginable how a family-friendly TV icon could have fallen so far — and yet, here we are.

Solange Knowles vs. JAY-Z

What really happened in that elevator?! / (c) WENN

In May of 2014, leaked surveillance camera footage showed JAY-Z being physically attacked by Beyoncé‘s little sis Solange Knowles in an elevator after a Met Gala party. Queen Bey stood passively off to the side as Solange punched, kicked, and slapped the rapper, and a bodyguard did his best to break things up.

Immediately, fan theories swirled about what the cause of the commotion could possibly be. The fallout lasted weeks, with cheating rumors flying around and plenty of other reactions from every corner of the celeb universe. The trio eventually released a statement about the incident, and Beyoncé even mentioned it on her Flawless remix, further solidifying the legendary moment. It unquestionably was instrumental in raising Solange’s public profile, and even years later the girls’ father still gets a kick out of the video. No pun intended…

Donald Trump

Though the infamous October 2016 Access Hollywood tape leak alongside sycophantic TV personality Billy Bush may be one of the most famous moments here, pretty much everything The Donald did this decade was scandalous. From years of his s**tty and inappropriate birther accusations against Barack Obama, to Trump’s own improbable candidacy and eventual underdog victory to reach the White House, the 2010s were (unfortunately) good to The Donald… and bad for the rest of us. Even Billy Bush made a regrettable (and forgettable) TV comeback after he’d decided he’d waited on the sideline long enough.

Fast forward to 2019 and Trump is still going strong, despite being the third president ever to be impeached by the House of Representatives for self-dealing conduct during a meeting with leaders from Ukraine. Forget consequences, though; The Donald has proven himself to be largely free of those, as he uses the new year to kickstart his 2020 re-election campaign. When will it end?!

#MeToo Movement

Activist Tarana Burke first coined the term ‘Me Too’ way back in 2006 when referring to widespread sexual assault and sexual misconduct, but usage of the phrase — and its hashtag — took off into the stratosphere in 2017 and 2018. Those two years were a particularly powerful time for women in the entertainment industry and around the globe, as men in power were called to account for their allegedly inappropriate ways. Accusations against high-profile people ranged from rape and sexual assault claims, to inappropriate touching and sexual misconduct.

Dozens of men like Harvey Weinstein, Bill O’Reilly, Matt Lauer, Louis CK, and even Kevin Spacey saw careers pause or come to an outright end as part of the fall-out from the movement. Thankfully, hundreds of women finally had their voices heard — and deservingly so, after years of repeated sexual abuse and misconduct in some of the worst cases. The #MeToo movement — and its sister initiative, Time’s Up — can’t un-do all the bad things that have happened to women in the entertainment industry and elsewhere, but at least it brought to the forefront a frank and honest discussion about power dynamics and inappropriate behavior.

R. Kelly

In a way somewhat similar to Bill Cosby’s situation, R. Kelly had long been dogged by decades of sexual assault and misconduct allegations. New evidence came to light in 2019, though, and the R&B singer was finally indicted on a variety of sex crime charges, eventually facing both federal and state prosecution for his alleged actions against multiple women. A month later, the singer gave an intense interview to CBS host Gayle King, insisting on his innocence and further charging an already emotional situation.

The peak of the scandal hit when the documentary series Surviving R. Kelly debuted on television later in 2019, reportedly enraging the singer and his team. A second part of the doc series is now set to be released in early 2020, too. Kelly has spent most of the year in jail while he awaits his trial dates in 2020; women who are accused of being his sex slaves have since come out to support him publicly, further muddying up what’s already been a remarkably shady case. Whenever it ends, Kelly may yet go down in history as one of the most prolific predators to ever work in the entertainment industry. Horrifying…

Jussie Smollett

Empire star Jussie Smollett made the wrong kind of headlines early in 2019 when he reported what at the time appeared to be a violent, racist attack against him on the streets of Chicago by men wearing ‘Make America Great Again’ hats. Very quickly, police sussed out inconsistencies in the actor’s story, and it was later alleged the entire thing was a staged, fake attack. Political commentators and public figures from around the world weighed in on it, and for weeks, Smollett’s bizarre actions were the talk of the nation.

The actor was sued by the city of Chicago at one point, in a bid for the government to receive pay back for the hours they seemingly wasted on his case; he counter-sued them later in the year. Smollett also faced his own criminal battle in regards to the alleged hoax, but state prosecutors eventually dropped the charges against him, cutting him at least a bit of a break. He was on the outs with Empire producers pretty much immediately afterwards, too, but by the end of 2019 there was an outside shot they’d have him back for the show’s sixth season. What a wild time…

College admissions scam

Lori Loughlin's bribery defense
Will Lori Loughlin’s name forever be spoken in ironic infamy? What a legacy to leave behind… / (c) FayesVision/WENN

In early 2019, federal prosecutors announced the results of a massive investigation leading to dozens of indictments in a wide-reaching high-profile scam allegedly being perpetrated by rich people to gain admission for their children into some of America’s most prestigious universities. Among the indictments were celebs Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman Macy, who were both accused of bribery and fraud in attempts to allegedly gain college admission for their respective daughters. Immediately the scandal rocked social media, and its fallout stayed in the headlines for months. Loughlin’s Full House character, Aunt Becky, quickly became a meme, and both women deleted all their social media profiles amid the incredible backlash.

Before the year’s end, Huffman Macy had agreed to a plea deal over the act of bribing an SAT administrator with $15,000 to help improve her daughter’s test scores. The Desperate Housewives actress ended up serving less than two weeks in a minimum security federal prison in northern California as a result; disgraceful though it may be, at least the drama was over for her before the end of the year.

Loughlin, on the other hand, chose to fight the feds in court alongside her husband, Mossimo Giannulli. The couple will have their day in court at some point in 2020, and the stakes are high! Forget about the deal Huffman Macy cut, because the accusation against the Fuller House star involves a significantly bigger bribe ($500,000!) and major deceit (fake rowing team bios!) with a major institution (the University of Southern California). Throw in daughter Olivia Jade‘s fledgling vlog career on YouTube, and you’ve got MAJOR family drama. Oh, what rich people will do with their money…

Honorable Mention…

Biggest celebrity scandals of the 2010s honorable mention list
So many other stories nearly made the top ten… the honorable mention list is LIT! / (c) WENN/Instar

It was damn near impossible for us to decide on ten celeb scandals to rule them all, y’all.

Seriously — we debated back and forth for days, and ultimately left out a lot of salacious and controversial moments, like Paula Deen getting caught using the n-word, and the discovery of Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s love child. There was the whole celeb nude photo hacking scandal, of course, as well as particularly bad behavior from men like Josh DuggarHank Baskett, Jake and Logan Paul, etc.

We nearly included more breakups, like the splits of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, or Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Considering the jail time involved, you might even be able to make a case for the ongoing saga surrounding Joe Giudice and estranged reality TV wife Teresa Giudice, too! And that crazy sex cult Allison Mack was involved with was widely considered, of course. Who doesn’t love reading about a sex cult?!

The Kardashians figured big in these scandals, as to be expected. We nearly included Kanye West‘s infamous comments on slavery, and gave a lot of thought to possibly adding in the love triangle drama that went down between Khloé KardashianTristan Thompson, and Jordyn Woods. Kendall Jenner‘s poor choice of commercials was considered here, as was Caitlyn Jenner‘s brutal tell-all book fall-out. Kimye’s battle against Taylor Swift, full of leaked phone calls and snake emojis, was another one heavily considered. And Taylor’s own saga with Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta may play out more in the next decade to come.

Lamar Odom‘s near-death experience was one more particularly significant story from the 2010s, as was Roseanne Barr‘s epic racist collapseKathy Griffin‘s staged beheading of Trump turned out bigger than we’d ever expected, too. Downfalls both serious (Whitney Houston‘s sudden death) and frivolous (Ariana Grande‘s donut-licking incident) also made the master list.

And s**t, who could forget #OscarsSoWhite?! And Kevin Hart‘s hosting hubbub?? Oh, and what about the colossal f**k-up in 2017 when La La Land was incorrectly named best picture, even though Moonlight had actually won the award?! That happened not even three years ago, and yet it feels like a lifetime… CRAZY!!!

Do you see what we mean now? So many options to choose from — and so tough to keep it at ten!

But there you have it! What do U think about all these scandals, Perezcious readers?! Did we choose right in picking the most salacious ones? What’d we miss?

Sound OFF with ALL your comments in the section (below), and we’ll see you for much, much more in 2020…

How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying

View this post on Instagram

We were just in LA and needed to find a One Hour Photo place quick. Sandwiched between little bodegas, my sister randomly found this place on Beverly Blvd in Korea Town called Tom’s One Hour Photo & Lab. It’s one of those rare mom-&-pop gems that has lasted thru trends coming and going and weirdly has come back around again without even realizing it. The owner, Tom, was SO adorable. He not only does film developing but (cheap) and nostalgic portrait sessions too. (He gave us digital files and we edited these but he’ll shoot on film if you ask him to.) Pick your favorite background! He made them all himself. 🥰 It’s cash only and he has no internet. He sadly told us his business used to be really busy back in 1991 when he opened but has slowed way down since the digital wave. So, like any good millennials would do we started an appreciation Instagram for him. @tomsonehourphotolab 🌹 Not sure he’ll even see this. Stop by, tell all your friends, and don’t forget to tag. Let’s keep this charming business afloat! #TomsOneHourPhoto

Singer Kacey Musgraves singlehandedly saved a dying business in August, all by uploading some pictures to Instagram! Along with the (above) image, she wrote:

Watch JAY-Z Confiscate Phone Of Man Trying To Record Beyoncé Cutting Loose At Diddy’s B-Day Party!

Diddy’s massive 50th birthday party was essentially a celeb-only affair — and JAY-Z wanted to keep it that way!

As we reported, the Bad Boy Records mogul celebrated his half-century birthday Saturday night inside his $40 million Holmby Hills home with many, MANY a-listers in attendance

Guests included Kim Kardashian West, Kanye West, Dr. Dre, Pharrell Williams, Cardi B, Offset, Khloé Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Chadwick Boseman, Post Malone, Tyler Perry, Kobe Bryant, Machine Gun Kelly, Jaden Smith, Kelly Rowland, Jay, and Beyoncé.

Needless to say, many would kill to see how a famous crew like that cuts loose: do they all break off into separate social circles? Do the super a-listers dance with everyone else? Some of the non-celebs who managed to snag invites tried to answer those questions by recording some of the event for their social media accounts.

Sadly, one amateur paparazzo’s efforts to record Bey getting her groove on were thwarted by the superstar’s bodyguard — aka, her husband!

Thanks to a separate amateur paparazzo’s video, the Formation singer was seen at the bash living her best life dancing with Rowland and Saweetie, with Jay a few feet away. A man dancing right next to the group was seen sneakily trying to record Bey in the act, but the rap titan straight up snatched the dude’s phone away!

After some “playful” scolding, Jay handed the man his phone back, all while Yoncé was (thankfully) too busy dancing to notice. A fan account wrote of the incident:

“Jay snatching someone’s phone cause he was filming Beyoncé dancing with @saweetie & @kellyrowland 😭 He loves his wife..”

See it all play out (below):

Aside from the phone snatching, the night was said to be a peaceful, fun affair. Jay and frenemy Kanye were photographed shaking hands following a strained period in their relationship.

Diddy, of course, was able to freely photograph his celeb guests throughout the night. He compiled some of the best shots from the celebration in an Instagram post, writing:

“Last night was one of those nights I’ll never forget. But something that sticks out to me is what my young creative @kaito put together with @vanityfair. All I can say is wow!! I’ve watched you grow from just a photographer to someone who captures beautiful art. Looking at these images makes me so proud. Thank you King! #DIDDY50 and thank you @natmoar.”

Diddy also recently posted a tribute to his late ex Kim Porter on her birthday, writing:

“HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY @ladykp Words can’t explain how much we miss you but today is your birthday. We’re celebrating you today! We love and we miss you!!!!!”

Hopefully we’ll get to see more Jay-approved pics and videos from the star-studded bash soon enough!

Diddy Holds Star-Studded 50th Birthday Bash — With No Beef! Kanye West & JAY-Z Show Up & Shake Hands!

Diddy may be the big 5-0, but he still knows how to do it right!

The music mogul and longtime A-list celeb celebrated his half-century birthday on Saturday night inside his $40 million home in Holmby Hills, California, and it sure seemed like a good time was had by all! And believe us… when we say “all,” we mean pretty much every celeb you could ever imagine!

Related: Lori Harvey Unfollows Rumored BF Diddy After ‘Other Woman’ Controversy

The mogul’s guest list was absurd; according to TMZ, it included the following high-profile public figures: JAY-Z, Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian West, Kanye West, Khloé Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Dr. Dre, Pharrell Williams, Cardi B, Offset, Chadwick Boseman, Post Malone, Tyler Perry, Kobe Bryant, Machine Gun Kelly, and on and on… and on, and on, and on! WOW!!!

That alone would make for a spectacular night, but a couple other things went down during the evening that would further make it all particularly special! For one, according to the outlet, JAY-Z and Yeezy mixed it up while they were both there, shaking heads and enjoying a laugh together — so it’s clear that whatever beef may have previously been between ’em is gone now, maybe? Nice!!!

You can see more highlights from the memorable evening out in El Lay’s high end hills by watching the video (below):

Now that’s how you celebrate turning 50!!!

There were performers there especially to celebrate the birthday boy, too! Mary J. BligeUsherLil Kim, and Doug E. Fresh all did their thing on stage at various points throughout the night, making it an even more memorable time for Diddy and the entire gang.

Oh, and what about the food, you ask? Got that covered! McDonald’s apple pies were everywhere, along with breakfast sandwiches, finger foods, and, oh yeah, some “fancy stuff,” as well. Plus, there was quite a bit of alcohol to go around — Ciroc Vodka was the drink of choice, of course. Gotta represent!

Related: Diddy Shares Cryptic Social Media Message After Cassie’s marriage

At this point, shrewd celeb-watchers will point out how Diddy’s birthday is actually on November 4 — and, well, you’re correct about that. Apparently, he’d been planning this mid-December bash for a while, in order for more celebs to be free so they could join him to celebrate.

Plus, Diddy’s been through some remarkably tough times over the past twelve months — most notably struggling with the death of Kim Porter, the mother of his twins — so it’s understandable that he wanted to wait a little bit before he maybe felt like celebrating again.

Regardless, he’s back now, and it appears everybody in attendance had an amazing time!! BTW, the inscription on the birthday cake was short and sweet, and it summed the whole thing up: “LOVE.” Awww!

Clearly, it was quite the party to remember. Love it!!!!

Beyoncé Gets Candid About Pregnancy Rumors & Past Miscarriages In New Tell-All Interview For ‘Elle’

The ever-private and illustrious Beyoncé is opening up!

In a candid, new “Ask Me Anything” interview for Elle magazine’s January 2020 cover story, the 38-year-old singer offered a rare look into one of the most difficult moments of her life and how she’s redefined success through hardship.

Related: Celebrities Who’ve Opened Up About Miscarriages

Before we get into the heavy stuff, ch-ch-check out her powerful cover shots (below):

On Her Miscarriages

Bey’s conversation with the glossy kicked off with a poignant reflection on how tough times forced her to search for new meaning in life. Referencing her painful miscarriages, she admitted:

“I began to search for deeper meaning when life began to teach me lessons I didn’t know I needed. Success looks different to me now. I learned that all pain and loss is in fact a gift. Having miscarriages taught me that I had to mother myself before I could be a mother to someone else.”

As our readers know, the star and her husband JAY-Z experienced fertility struggles on their journey to start a family and they previously opened up about it in the 2013 HBO documentary Life Is But A Dream where Bey called it “the saddest thing I’ve ever been through.”

The couple would go on to welcome their three kids, 7-year-old Blue Ivy Carter and 2-year-old twins, Sir and Rumi Carter. The former Destiny’s Child frontwoman says finally being able to conceive helped completely redefine her idea of success:

“I had Blue, and the quest for my purpose became so much deeper. I died and was reborn in my relationship, and the quest for self became even stronger. It’s difficult for me to go backwards. Being ‘number one’ was no longer my priority. My true win is creating art and a legacy that will live far beyond me. That’s fulfilling.”

On Body Positivity

In addition to shifting her sense of purpose, the Lemonade singer admitted the changes her body experienced through and after pregnancy brought unexpected newfound confidence:

“If someone told me 15 years ago that my body would go through so many changes and fluctuations, and that I would feel more womanly and secure with my curves, I would not have believed them. But children and maturity have taught me to value myself beyond my physical appearance and really understand that I am more than enough no matter what stage I’m at in life.”

Alluding to her current IDGAF mindset, Beyoncé continued:

“Giving zero f**ks is the most liberating place to be. Also knowing true beauty is something you cannot see. I wish more people focused on discovering the beauty within themselves rather than critiquing other folks’ grills.”

Speaking of unnecessary critiques, the entertainer revealed the question that really works a nerve is when fans get overzealous and ask if she’s expecting again! The star emphatically shared her feelings on the matter:

“Get off my ovaries!”

On Making Time For Her Family

Even with the star’s growing list of business ventures, which includes running her management company Parkwood Entertainment and the re-launch of her apparel brand IVY PARK, she continues to prioritize her family:

“Making sure I am present for my kids — dropping Blue off at school, taking Rumi and Sir to their activities, making time for date nights with my husband, and being home in time to have dinner with my family — all while running a company can be challenging. Juggling all of those roles can be stressful, but I think that’s life for any working mom.”

By embracing her many roles in life, Bey has learned “the predictable rock star DNA is a myth.”

“I believe you don’t have to accept dysfunction to be successful. This is not to say that I have not struggled. I have the same pain that life brings to everyone else. I try to shift the stigma that says with fame there has to be drama. It is how you relate to your hardships and use that to evolve. And I try to keep real ones around me.”

On Revamping IVY PARK:

Yonce’s feature comes on the heels of a new partnership between IVY PARK and Adidas that aims to bring a fresh update to the star’s athleisure collection. The upcoming line experiments with fashion, mixing high and low, sportswear with couture, and even masculine and feminine.

The starlet admitted the new gender-neutral creative direction came from an outpouring of support from male customers:

“I focused on designing a unisex collection of footwear and apparel because I saw so many men in IVY PARK. The way they have embraced the brand is an unexpected gift. I appreciate the beauty of gender-neutral clothing and breaking the so-called fashion rules. I took a chance on myself when I bought my company back. We all have the confidence in us to take chances and bet on ourselves.”

The new range of activewear clothing and accessories isn’t set to launch until Saturday, January 18, but in the meantime, fans can get a glimpse of the merch courtesy of the fierce batch of pics the momma of three recently shared on her Instagram. We can’t wait to see the full line when it drops!

Before you go, feast your eyes on the rest of Beyoncé’s stunning spread, here:
